India - Human touch, efficiency & innovation

Add a human touch to governance, revamp office memorandum-circular system, earmark 1% of departmental budget for innovation, and make top officers spend 5-6 days a month in the field — these are the core of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s new mantra for governance.

Three weeks after Modi met additional secretary and joint secretary level officials, Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha has written to secretaries of all ministries with 39 actionable points to “expeditiously” act on and give a status report to the Cabinet Secretary. The actionable points circulated by Sinha are largely on how the governance needs to be revamped to give it a human touch and an efficient turnaround.

The directive observes that the Central Secretariat has lost field focus and officers need to mandatorily spend 5-6 days in the field. Modi had observed during his interaction that there is a “need to reach out to everyone in the team — break the habit of working in silos”.

Taking forward this observation, one of the actionable points circulated is: “There is need for communication between seniors and juniors. Need to align all employees of the organisation to the vision of the organisation.”

Crying After Trump's Counterpunch, JUST-Haired Kathy Griffin Verbally Assraped by Neighbor(w/ audio)

Kathy Griffin’s millionaire neighbor reportedly went on an expletive-filled tirade against both her and her longtime boyfriend after the star called the LAPD to file a noise complaint over the weekend.

Griffin, who recently has come under fire in her professional life for a photo of her with a fake severed head of Donald Trump, seems to be having neighbor troubles at her Los Angeles home as well. On Saturday, she and her boyfriend, Randy Bick, reportedly called in a noise complaint on their neighbor, KB Home CEO Jeffrey Mezger.

The Huffington Post, which first reported the story, says it obtained audio of the altercation from Bick himself from a security camera on their property. Bick claims that he called in the noise complaint after hours of excessive partying on Mezger’s property. After the police addressed the noise complaint, Mezger can be heard on the recording shouting homophobic expletives at Griffin and Bick, calling her a, “c–t,” ‘d–e,” mocking her shaved head and bringing up her recent controversy.

“Hey Randy, go f–k yourself. Seriously? You call on my grandkids at 9 o’clock? You’re not even the f—ing owner. You’re stuck with a f—ing bald d–e who Donald Trump kind of put the heat on,” Mezger can be heard shouting in the video. “Now you’re calling the cops? F–k you and f–k Kathy. You’re not our f—ing neighbor, you’re a f—ing a—–e.”

As People notes, Griffin shaved her head recently out of solidarity for her sister Joyce Griffin, who died of an undisclosed form of cancer last week. Mezger has been the CEO and chairman of KB Home since 2006, but has worked at the company since 1993, according to his biography on the company’s website.

In a statement to Fox News, a spokesperson for KB Home said that the audio recording in question appears to have been edited, but admits that it is Mezger speaking in the recording.

"Mr. Mezger regrets losing his temper and the language he used. It does not reflect who he is or what he believes and he has apologized to Ms. Griffin in writing for using that language."

Also in the statement, the spokesperson explained that Mezger claims a series of incidents involving he, Griffin and Bick led to the most recent heated exchange. He claims that this is not the first time that the police have been called by Griffin and Bick for noise complaints. This time, he took issue with the officer, who took no legal action, making his 4, 5 and 6-year old grandchildren feel uncomfortable.

"They were not screaming, they were just playing, with their mother and grandmother supervising."

Representives for Griffin were not immediately available for comment or to confirm the apology.

Homos Unleashed: California Schools to Distribute Books that Promote Becoming a Tranny to Young Kids

Should children in kindergarten be taught about transgender people?

That’s the question at the center of a controversy that erupted in June after a transgender student at Rocklin Academy Gateway, a charter school in northern California, brought the children’s book “I Am Jazz” to school to share with classmates. The book chronicles the life of a real-life transgender girl named Jazz Jennings.

In a Monday night vote after an impassioned, emotional debate, the Rocklin school board decided to keep its current literature policies in place, which allow similar types of books to be read to children during story time. However, the board passed a provision stating that teachers "will endeavor to notify parents in advance of controversial topics being discussed when they are part of the school’s curriculum or a teacher’s lesson plan so that parents can also share their views at home."

The policy adopted further states, if advance notice is not possible,

teachers will "endeavor to notify parents via email or verbally after the fact."

Some parents raised objections that they were not notified, while others at the meeting supported the school’s policies and did not object to the reading material.

Wendy Sickler, a parent of two children at the school, said her "concern is that a book that was read was outside the curriculum, and it was a sensitive topic, and the parents weren't notified."

Sickler said she’s not opposed to a transgender child being in the classroom.

>Here's to open and frank discussions with your doctors AND parents! #IAmJazz http://pic.twitter.com/Ge8tFzBTHI

>— TLC Network (@TLC) August 10, 2017

“I know that our kids are going to be exposed to different lifestyles, and that to me reinforces that they should notify parents,” she said, according to the Sacramento Bee, adding that she thinks that additional changes are needed other than the issues brought before the school board.

According to the newspaper, Beryl Mayne, of Auburn, arrived before the meeting with other members of the LGBT community holding signs that said: “Trans Rights are Human Rights,” “Trans Kids Have Courage” and “Love and Let Love.”

“It’s important tonight to support transgender children. It’s not about me. It’s about transgender children,” Mayne told the Bee.

After the vote, one school board member urged the community to come together and move forward now that a decision had been made.

"Please let this end tonight," Larry Steiner said, according to the Bee. "We cannot forget Rocklin Academy is a school of choice. The hostility has to end. Let's bring back our sense of community."

Indian Teacher to 6-Year-Old Girl: "Didn't Do Your Homework? Then Show the Class Your Little Tits!"

Meranews, Vadodara: A teacher at a Vadodara school owned by a political leader allegedly made a Class 2 student unbutton her shirt before the entire class on Saturday for not completing her homework.

In incident came to light after the parents of the six-year-old girl, on finding her quiet and keeping to herself for the last few days, asked her about the reason. The parents then approached the school to complain about the matter on Wednesday, following which the teacher, Dharmisthaben Rathod, was asked to tender her resignation.

The school, C.K. Prajapati Vidhyalaya in Vadodara’s Gorwa area, is owned by Dalsukh Prajapati, a political leader who resigned from the Congress and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday.

In a telephone conversation with Meranews, the student’s father said, “Is it alright to punish schoolchildren in this way? That too, in front of the whole class a student’s shirt buttons were opened as punishment, what kind of punishment is that? What kind of sin did my daughter commit? My mobile number is on the school ID card. The teacher should have informed us that our daughter did not do her homework.”

Chinese Protesting North Korea Nuke Tests

The residents of a Chinese community near the North Korean border recently protested Kim Jong-un's test of a hydrogen bomb at Punggye-ri, which nearly leveled many buildings in their town and threatens the release of radioactive material.

http://www.trunews.com/article/chinese-protesting-north-korea-nuke-tests

North Korea's nuclear test earlier this month came without warning for the Chinese who live near its border, and nearly toppled many of their homes, and now they face the very real threat of nuclear contamination—making them understandably furious. The South Korean Yonhap News Agency reported Wednesday morning:

>A group of citizens in a northeastern Chinese city bordering North Korea have taken to the streets protesting the North's latest nuclear test as concerns over radioactive contamination are mounting there, a U.S. broadcaster reported Wednesday. They staged a protest Sunday against the North's most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3 in downtown Harbin, Heilongjian Province, shouting, "We strongly protest the test that intimidates the three northeastern Chinese provinces (adjacent to the North)," Radio Free Asia said. "No country conducts a nuclear test in border areas, but North Korea poses a grave threat to China by enforcing the nuclear test in a place very close to China," rights activist Yu Yunfeng, who led the protest, was cited as saying. He underlined that the test triggering a 5.8 magnitude earthquake can affect China's air pollution as the test site, Punggye-ri in the North's Hamkyong Province, is just 36 kilometers from the border between the two nations, the broadcaster said.

The protests, which would have required government approval, are yet another sign of China’s growing frustration with Kim Jong-un and his regime. This week, the government also closed down a national park on its half of Mt. Paektu, a supervolcano ripe for a new eruption located very near the Punggye-ri test site.

NATO General: Russia Prepping for ‘Big War’

NATO General: Russia Prepping for ‘Big War’

Czech Army Gen. Petr Pavel, chairman of the NATO Military Committee, said Russia's Zapad 2017 war games are preparation for a "big war," and the massive concentration of troops could lead to a "human mistake" that leads to a real conflict.

http://www.trunews.com/article/nato-general-russia-prepping-for-big-war

Czech Army Gen. Petr Pavel, chairman of the NATO Military Committee, said a lack of transparency from Russia over its Zapad 2017 war games is raising suspicions that President Vladimir Putin is preparing for an actual conflict. Such comments, including Pavel’s warning that the Russian war games could lead to “unintended consequences of potential incidents” are not uncommon during large-scale military exercises by either side. But the general’s true concern is over troop numbers—Russia says it’s deployed 13,000 and NATO says it’s closer to 10 times that number. Pavel added:

>"All together, what we see is a serious preparation for big war. When we only look at the exercise that is presented by Russia there should be no worry. But when we look it in the big picture, we have to be worried, because Russia was not transparent," Pavel added. "We have high concentration of troops in the Baltics. We have a high concentration of troops in the Black Sea and potential for an incident may be quite high because of a human mistake, because of a technology failure. We have to be sure that such an unintended incident will not escalate into conflict."

Zapad 2017, taking place in Belarus and Russia’s Kaliningrad region, will continue through Wednesday.

Enraged Feminists Ban Sex Dolls in China

A Chinese company offering sex dolls for rent has withdrawn its services just days after launching.

Touch had begun offering five different sex doll types for daily or longer-term rent on Thursday in Beijing but quickly drew complaints and criticism.

But the firm stressed sex was "not vulgar" and said it would keep working towards more people enjoying it.

Touch told the BBC the rental service had operated for two days and had garnered a lot of interest and requests.

"We prepared ten dolls for the trial operation," a company spokesperson said via email, adding that they received very positive feedback from users.

The company had offered the sex dolls for a daily fee of 298 yuan (£34; $46), according to Chinese media.

The models on offer were marketed as Chinese, Korean and Russian women, with one also modelled on the movie character Wonder Woman, complete with a sword and shield.

In its Weibo statement, the firm said its original intention had been to make expensive silicone dolls more affordable but conceded that the service (((triggered))) a heated public debate.

The statement added that Touch would in future pay more attention to its "social duty", and would actively promote a "healthier and more harmonious sex lifestyle".

Trump Supporting College Student Kicked Out of School for Reporting Illegal Immigrant to the Police

Trump supporter Tayler Ragg thought it would be cool and prudent to report an undocumented student at his college in an attempt to get her deported. He has since been expelled from his school.

The ex-Transylvania University student posted a picture of the victim’s Facebook page and captioned it, “Everyone go report this illegal at my school.”

Ragg has deleted his account and lost his placement at school.

A spokesperson for the school confirmed his departure.

“Taylor Ragg is no longer enrolled at Transylvania University. Per University policy and federal laws, we cannot offer any further details into the matter.”

The girl he harassed, Paola Garcia, has made a video describing what she went through. She was sent abusive messages like, “I can’t wait till your fucking cunt ass is gone,” “You and your nigger boyfriend need to leave” and “Hope you enjoy your visit back to the dirt floors of your homeland, stinky ass.”

Former Official: IAEA Has Credibility Issues

Former Official: IAEA Has Credibility Issues

The former deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency says the organization has "credibility issues" because it cannot access Iranian military bases suspected of being used for research and development of its nuclear weapons program.

http://www.trunews.com/article/former-official-iaea-has-credibility-issues

In a new interview, Dr. Olli Heinonen, former deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, questioned how the organization can fully inspect Iran’s nuclear program without gaining access to its military bases. Heinonen, the former head of IAEA’s Department of Safeguards, told Breitbart News’ Aaron Klein during an interview for the investigative reporter’s talk radio program the agency charged with ensuring Iran is complying with the Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, cannot treat Iranian military bases like “sanctuaries.”He said:

>"There is a special provision in the deal which asks the IAEA to monitor certain activities, so-called dual-use activities which can also be used for nuclear weapons purposes. IAEA has assessed that it has now verified that undertaking from Iran," he said. "So it is hard for me to understand how you can verify that undertaking without visiting a military site and this is the most puzzling thing. And it goes to the credibility of the verification system.'

This is, effectively, the argument U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations Nikki Haley has been making, and is one of the leading reasons why President Donald Trump has been reticent to declare Iran in compliance with the JCPOA. Recently, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported:

>Iranians refused to allow inspectors to visit a series of other suspicious sites, claiming they were military bases and, therefore, not covered by the nuclear accord and that they were not required to allow access to inspectors.

The newspaper also reported that one Western nation has provided the IAEA with evidence that Iran is carrying out activities related to nuclear capabilities, including research and development at sites it did not declare during the JCPOA negotiations with the Obama administration.

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.

Heartless Swiss to deport 106 yr old afghan gran after arduos trip over mountain & desert

Severely disabled refugee was carried through mountains, deserts and forests by family members fleeing Islamist extremists

A 106-year-old Afghan woman who made a perilous journey to Europe, carried by her son and grandson through mountains, deserts and forests, is facing deportation from Sweden after her asylum application was rejected.

Bibihal Uzbeki is severely disabled and can barely speak. Her family has appealed against the rejection, and she is allowed up to three appeals, a process that could take a long time. The applications of other family members are in various stages of appeal.

Her rejection letter came during Ramadan. While the family avoided telling her, the constant grief from her granddaughters made her suspicious.

“My sisters were crying,” explained 22-year-old Mohammed Uzbeki. “My grandmother asked, ‘Why are you crying?’”

The family said that soon after she understood her request was denied, her health started deteriorating and she suffered a debilitating stroke.

Their journey made headlines in 2015, when they were part of a huge influx of people who came to Europe from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries. They traveled by foot and on trains through the Balkans before finally reaching Sweden.

The Swedish Migration Agency confirmed it has made a decision on the case and said age doesn’t by itself provide grounds for asylum.

Uzbeki arrived at the Opatovac refugee camp in Croatia in October 2015 after what she said had been a 20-day journey with her 17 family members to reach Europe, with her 67-year-old son and a 19-year-old grandson often carrying her on their backs.

Sweden to Hold Women-Only Music Festival Due to Muslim Rapists, Trannys Crying Being Left Uninvited

Transgender activists have attacked Sweden’s first women-only festival for only banning biological men, as this could imply transgendered men are not real men.

Comedian Emma Knyckare set up the festival in response to reports of mass sexual attacks at music festivals in Sweden, largely committed by migrants.

However, questions were quickly asked about how they would define “men”. Organisers said only “cis” men would be banned (men who were born male and still identify as male).

In the past, all-female festivals have been attacked by transgender activists for doing the opposite and excluding all “physically male” people, including “transgender women”.

On Instagram, user emma.bkstrm was not impressed. She asked: “Why only cis men and not just men? Are transgender men less male?”

The festival’s organisers replied that “of course they are equally male” and “we are taking the criticism on board and will discuss it internally next week to see if a revision is needed”.

A different user noted that “you have previously argued that transgender men know how it is to be vulnerable and oppressed, just like women, and should, therefore, be welcomed.

“What do you do with the rest of the men who are vulnerable and oppressed, then? Homosexual men, non-white men? Are they welcome? I don’t buy your logic. Men are men, full stop.”

“That’s an argument we’ll take on during the coming days and the project group will discuss it during a meeting next week to see if the decision needs to be reconsidered or not,” festival organisers replied.

In early 2016, the Swedish media and police were accused of colluding to ‘cover up’ sexual attacks by gangs of migrant youths over several years at a teenage music festival in Stockholm.

In the wake of the New Year’s Eve Cologne migrant sex attack scandal, in Germany, the police promised to act and the press started to report on the issue, but the problem persisted.

In July 2016, so-called “foreign men” allegedly attacked nearly 40 women, including five rapes, at the country’s largest festival.

The trend continued at the Bråvalla Festival the following year, with reports of another rape, leading to organisers cancelling next year’s event.

Child Pornographer's Parents Sue School After His Suicide

Staff at a suburban Chicago high school called 16-year-old Corey Walgren to the dean’s office to ask about a video he made of himself having sex with a classmate. A few hours later, the teen walked to the top of a five-story parking deck and jumped.

The suicide of the honor-roll student underscored a dilemma for schools when confronting students suspected of recording and sharing sexual images: Should school officials wait until parents arrive to pose questions and search cellphones for illicit photos or video? Or do they, as de facto parents, have the authority to investigate crimes that might include child pornography?

His parents have sued the school, accusing it in a federal lawsuit of unnecessarily traumatizing their son by warning him he could be charged and forced to register as a sex offender. They are seeking more than $5 million in damages.

“They scared the hell out of the kid, and that’s what drove Corey to kill himself,” said Maureen and Doug Walgren’s attorney, Terry Ekl.

It all began around noon on Jan. 11 after the 16-year-old classmate with whom Walgren had sex lodged a complaint at school. She had learned of the video that day from a friend and was upset Walgren made it without her permission. At first, she said, she was not sure the sex was consensual but later stated clearly that it was.

Facing discipline at school was a new experience for Walgren. As he walked into the office at about 12:40 p.m., Dean Steve Madden said he had never seen Walgren under these circumstances because the teen had never been in trouble, according to the documents obtained by the AP.

Walgren quickly admitted what he had done. When the two teens were in his car, parked on a secluded street at night, he had turned on the video-recording function and dropped his cellphone by his leg after the pair talked and shared some alcohol.

Neither teen was visible on the two minutes of footage during their sexual encounter. It was the audio Walgren played for four friends, some at a school hockey practice. He never texted or emailed it.

Also in the dean’s office was Brett Heun, a Naperville police officer assigned to the school.

The recording was hidden on an app that looked like a calculator. When Walgren opened it for the officer, it revealed photos of other partially nude girls, as well as the video, according to accounts obtained by the AP as early as last spring. Those images, which Walgren said were sent to him by others, were among contents downloaded by Naperville police. The department and school district did not respond to requests for comment.

The officer told Walgren the video “concerned child pornography, which is obviously illegal.” Walgren nodded. Heun later said he wanted to impress upon Walgren that the matter was serious. But if Walgren cooperated, Heun told him, the matter could be kept out of court.

When sexual images are shared and discovered, school officials are not in complete agreement about best practices for responding, but there is consensus that a student’s cellphone should immediately be confiscated and police alerted. Guidelines from the Illinois Association of School Boards say not reporting explicit images of kids can itself be a crime.

Walgren was interviewed for at least 20 minutes until his parents were called.

Walgren did not appear upset by the questioning. “Corey was calm, cooperative and respectful,” Madden said. The dean also thanked him for being honest.

Walgren may not have shown it, but what he heard must have caused him “psychological distress … humiliation and shame,” his parents’ lawsuit says.

After meeting school officials, Walgren was told to wait at a student-services office while his mother drove to the school. He sat behind a secretary, and the two chatted casually.

When she looked back minutes later, he was gone.

Surveillance footage later showed him walking up a parking deck ramp less than a mile away. At the top, he paced for several minutes.

A woman heading to her car glanced up to see someone sitting five floors above. She wasn’t alarmed, a police report said, because the person “was calmly sitting on the ledge.”

But a minute later, at 2:40 p.m., she looked out a third-deck window. The same person was now lying on the ground level. She ran down the stairwell and began performing CPR before an ambulance arrived.

His mother was at the school after 3 p.m. when she was told that a person who was injured downtown might be her son.

As Heun drove her to a hospital, Maureen Walgren asked about photos of the injured person sent to Heun’s phone. The picture quality was poor, he answered. But she insisted and he handed her his phone. She knew instantly it was her son.

She did not see him until after doctors pronounced him dead at 3:27 p.m.

Mattis: U.S. Nuclear Triad Must Be Maintained

Mattis: U.S. Nuclear Triad Must Be Maintained

Defense Secretary James Mattis stated his continued support for the so-called "nuclear triad" during comments to reporters Thursday afternoon.

http://www.trunews.com/article/mattis-u.s.-nuclear-triad-must-be-maintained

En route to Strategic Command Headquarters at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska, Defense Secretary James Mattis said maintaining the U.S. “nuclear triad” sends the most compelling message to nations that wish to do us harm. The retired Marine Corps general said:

>"If I want to send the most compelling message, I have been persuaded that is the triad, and its framework is the right way to go."

The nuclear triad is the multi-tiered system that employs land-based nuclear missile silos, airborne nuclear-capable aircraft, and seaborne ballistic missile submarines to provide the U.S. military with strike capabilities anywhere in the world on short notice. Developed during the Cold War as part of the U.S. “mutually assured destruction” deterrent against the Soviet Union, it now provides the same measure of response against other hostile foreign powers still today. The triad, however, has fallen into a state of old age. All three components of the system have outlived their intended lifespans and due to budget constraints imposed during the Obama administration, they may not last until their replacements are in place. Congress has approved additional spending in the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget, which goes into effect Oct. 1.

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

http://www.thelegalindia.com/2017/07/25/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.

Mentally Ill Man Commits Suicide By Cop - Mother Blames Police

Police in the US state of Georgia have shot and killed an LGBT student activist, leading to an independent investigation.

Police encountered Scout Schultz at a campus in Atlanta after a call about "a person with a knife and a gun" late on Saturday, officials say.

Footage has emerged apparently showing Schultz, 21, refusing to obey multiple police commands to drop a knife.

Schultz's mother said police should not have used lethal force.

In a video filmed by fellow students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Schultz is heard saying "Shoot me!" while continuing to advance on the officers. One of them then opens fire.

Schultz - who identified as neither male nor female - did not appear to be holding a gun, investigators said, despite what had initially been reported to police.

The computer engineering student later died in hospital, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

No police officers from the Georgia Tech Police Department (GTPD) were injured in the incident.

The officer who opened fire has not been named.

Schultz's mother Lynne later said Scout, who was born Scott Schultz, was politically active in progressive causes, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

She added that Schultz had numerous medical issues, suffered from depression and had attempted suicide two years ago.

"Why didn't they use some nonlethal force, like pepper spray or Tasers?" she was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

Schultz was the president of the Pride Alliance at Georgia Tech.

"We are all deeply saddened by what has occurred," the group said in a statement.

"They have been the driving force behind Pride Alliance for the past two years," the group said, using Schultz's preferred pronoun. "They pushed us to do more events and a larger variety events."

Arrested DNC Staffer Awan Retains Long-Time Clinton Associate For Legal Help

After getting arrested Monday night at Dulles Airport in Northern Virginia while attempting to flee the country on a flight to Qatar, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz' IT staffer, according to Conservative Review, has decided to hire a lawyer with longstanding connections to the Clinton family for legal help.

Chris Gowen, a founding partner at Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd and Silva, apparently did a little bit of everything for the Clintons over the course of multiple years including working in the Clinton White House, helping President Bill Clinton write his book, "My Life", and serving on Hillary's 2008 presidential campaign. Per Gowen's bio:

Mr. Gowen left the Public Defender’s office to work for former President William Jefferson Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Chris was a fact checker for President Clinton’s memoir, My Life. He also served as a traveling aid for President Clinton’s national and international trips. Chris finished his tenure with the Clintons by directing the advance operations for then-Senator Hillary Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign.

Another biography, published on the American University website, says Gowen worked with several other controversial Clinton projects, including The Clinton Global Initiative, The Clinton Foundation, and The Clinton Health Access Initiative.

Shortly after Awan’s arrest, Gowen immediately jumped into the fray and hit the ground running with allegations that Awan was a victim of Islamophobia. He labeled Awan’s arrest as part of “a right-wing media-driven prosecution by a United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim"…it's almost as if the words are coming straight from Hillary's mouth.

As we noted last night, Imran Awan has been charged with bank fraud but it is unclear whether that charge is just a placeholder for other charges that are yet to come. While details are scarce, media reports have alleged that Awan and his brothers potentially ran a procurement scheme in which they bought equipment, then overcharged various House members that employed their IT firm. Meanwhile, some congressional technology aides have alleged that the Awan’s were blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, due to the fact that these representatives have displayed unwavering and intense loyalty towards the former aides.

As background, Imran was first employed in 2004 by former Democrat Rep. Robert Wexler (FL) as an “information technology director”, before he began working in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office in 2005.

The family was paid extremely well, with Imran Awan being paid nearly $2 million working as an IT support staffer for House Democrats since 2004. Abid Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were each paid more than $1 million working for House Democrats. In total, since 2003, the family has collected nearly $5 million.

In total, Imran's firm was employed by 31 Democrats in Congress, some of whom held extremely sensitive positions on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Of course, one of the most intriguing parts of the Awan narrative is precisely why former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (DWS) decided to keep him on her taxpayer-funded payroll right up until his arrest yesterday and whether that decision had anything to do with the whole DNC / Hillary email scandals that erupted last summer.

Vatican diplomat recalled amid child porn investigation

A high-ranking priest working in the Vatican’s embassy in Washington has been recalled after U.S. prosecutors asked for him to be charged there and face trial in a child pornography investigation, Vatican and U.S. officials said Friday.

The diplomat was suspected of possessing, but not producing or disseminating, child pornography including images of pre-pubescent children, a U.S. source familiar with the case said. The source was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Vatican declined to identify the priest, but said he was currently in Vatican City and that Vatican prosecutors had launched their own probe and sought evidence from the U.S.

Retro pizzagte:Couple spent 21 yrs in prison for satanic kid abuse,found innocent and get millions

U fucking auties that believe this shite

Good people go to jail because of you

Your just another delusional sheep

Falsely accused of satanic horrors, a couple spent 21 years in prison. Now they're owed millions.

ong before the age of the Internet and the fleeting spasms of mass hysteria that came with it (Remember Jade Helm? Pizzagate?), and going back to the late 20th century, when irrational fears moved slower and lasted longer, there was Satan.

The "satanic panic," some call it now. It began some time in the 1980s, when newscasters and fundamentalist Christian cartoons warned of the evils of the role-playing game "Dungeons & Dragons," and stretched into the 1990s, when police and psychiatrists saw thousands of unfounded accusations of ritualistic sex abuse and children were seized from British parents accused of devil worship.

One case still stands out.

"This country hasn't seen anything like it since the Salem witch trials," Texas Monthly wrote in 1994, in a profile of Austin, Texas, day-care operators Dan and Fran Keller, who had been thrown in prison two years earlier.

The Kellers had been convicted of sexual assault in 1992. Children from their day-care center accused them — variously — of serving blood-laced Kool Aid; wearing white robes; cutting the heart out of a baby; flying children to Mexico to be raped by soldiers; using Satan's arm as a paintbrush; burying children alive with animals; throwing them in a swimming pool with sharks; shooting them; and resurrecting them after they had been shot.

They were hardly the only people to be accused by children during the panic. Many were exonerated long ago — like the 20 people wrongly convicted in the infamous Kern County sex abuse cases. Some now blame the phenomenon on "a quack cadre of psychotherapists who were convinced that they could dig up buried memories through hypnosis," as Radley Balko wrote in a column for The Washington Post.

But the Kellers suffered for decades.

They served nearly 22 years in prison before a court released them in 2013, after years of work by journalists and lawyers to expose what proved to be a baseless case against them.

"These tales are usually just that — figments of imagination," the New York Times wrote in 1994, citing a study by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect that found not a single substantiated case of cult sex abuse among more than 11,000 reported to psychiatric and police workers.

Nevertheless, the Kellers were convicted after a six-day trial in 1992.

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

http://rare.us/rare-news/across-the-u-s-a/trump-supporters-are-planning-the-mother-of-all-rallies-in-d-c-theres-just-one-problem/

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.

MGTOW: Women 'more likely to lose interest in sex than men'

Women are more than twice as likely as men to lack interest in sex when living with a partner, a study of British sexual attitudes suggests.

It found that while men and women lost passion with age, women were often left cold by longer relationships.

But the researchers, from the University of Southampton and University College London, said there was no evidence that the menopause was a factor for women.

However, they did find that having young children at home was a particular turn-off for women.

Poor physical and mental health, poor communication and a lack of emotional connection during sex were the main reasons why men and women lost interest.

Stupid White College Football Chad Abducted & Graphically Tortured for 40 Hours by Angry Psycho Nigs

Niko Kollias watched his blood swirl down the bathtub drain. There was so much. And it was coming from so many places. His head. Both of his legs. And the gaping cuts where they had sliced the webbing between his toes.

Even more blood was coating the clothing iron sitting on the sink. He didn't know where they'd put the hedge clippers; he was just glad they were gone. He could still see the roll of duct tape nearby, covered with the bloody fingerprints they'd left behind when they taped his hands and feet together before slamming the rebar and heavy metal pipes down onto him, over and over again. His khaki pants and ripped University of Rochester Football T-shirt sat crumpled in the corner, the blue and yellow of his college colors turning brown as his blood began to oxidize in the fabric.

Kollias wanted to take off his ACL brace, the one he'd been wearing after knee surgery for a recent football injury. He wanted to clean it and his skin underneath. But he worried that if he pulled the brace apart, his leg might actually fall off. His femur was shattered; he'd felt it explode after they shot him there when he tried to run. He didn't realize they'd also shot him in the calf of his other leg. He could no longer feel that leg and couldn't see it because so much blood kept pouring into his eyes from his scalp, over which they had smashed a long, fluorescent lightbulb. It was only then, when the blood just wouldn't stop from that last blow, that they halted their attack and threw him in the shower.

He could hear the men in the room next door, laughing, smoking weed and maybe still wearing those terrifying plastic masks.

But who were they? Kollias didn't know. He could see only their eyes through the masks when they attacked him. He couldn't even see their mouths move as they screamed for revenge. As he sat in the folding chair they'd put into the grimy shower, Kollias, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound University of Rochester senior defensive end, realized he had no idea where he was, who the men were or even what they wanted from him. All he knew was that they had shot and then beaten him for more than three hours.

As he sat there in the shower watching his blood pour down the drain, Kollias had no idea that it was all connected to his football team. And he had no way of knowing that the torture had only just begun.

According to People, Amber's tweets came in response to actor Armie Hammer tweeting to Woods, "Didn't you date a 19 year old when you were 60…….?" following Woods's criticism of Armie's upcoming film, in which he plays a 24-year-old dating a 17-year-old.

"James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. 'I'm 16' I said. 'Even better' he said," Amber tweeted.

Crazy person vandalizes shelter wall; mocks victims to "have a good time!" (Oh..it's him)

https://archive.fo/BEf33

I know I say this a lot, but what the living hell is wrong with Trump?

I didn’t think he could top his disastrous first visit to Houston, where he bragged about the “turnout” to his visit with hurricane victims and then refused to personally meet with any of them.

An exasperated John Kelly no doubt told him to go out and try again… and this time actually mention their plight at least once. So Trump made a second visit where he went to a hurricane shelter, and for reasons no one can figure out, he turned to the wall behind him and signed his name— on the bare wall.

Twitter was as stunned as the people in the shelter on why he did this.

This isn’t a promotional tour, you nitwit!

Then President Dumbass said he “saw a lot of happiness" ….and told everyone when he was leaving to “Have a good time, everybody!”

Harvard's Attempt to Virtue Signal to the Left Backfires

Harvard University on Friday withdrew a fellowship invitation to Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who was convicted of leaking classified data, after two leaders in the U.S. intelligence community distanced themselves from the school.

Manning, 29, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where she had been held for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

The Harvard Kennedy School of government announced on Wednesday that it had invited the controversial figure to be a visiting fellow and speak at a forum.

The invitation to speak still stands, Harvard Kennedy Dean Douglas Elmendorf said in a statement.

“I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Elmendorf said. “I see more clearly now that many people view a visiting fellow title as an honorific, so we should weigh that consideration when offering invitations.”

The announcement came after U.S. CIA Director Mike Pompeo canceled a speaking engagement at the university on Thursday over the invitation to Manning, whom he called an “American traitor” in a letter explaining his decision.

“My conscience and duty to the men and women of the Central Intelligence Agency will not permit me to betray their trust by appearing to support Harvard’s decision with my appearance,” he wrote to the school.

Manning said on Twitter that she was “honored to be 1st disinvited trans woman visiting Harvard fellow. They chill marginalized voices under CIA pressure.”

Also on Thursday, Michael Morell, former deputy director and acting director of the CIA, resigned as a senior fellow at the university, media reported.

“Good,” Manning tweeted after Morell resigned.

Never Trust a Queer: Homo Seattle Mayor to Resign Following Multiple Accounts of Boy & Teen Assrape

Seattle’s openly gay mayor announced his resignation Tuesday following allegations of sexual abuse dating back decades, with the most recent accusation coming from a cousin. Five men in all have accused the mayor of wrongdoing.

He plans to leave his position as of 5 p.m. Wednesday, the statement said.

“I have a plan in place for a seamless transition in order for city operations to continue at the highest standard,” Harrell said in a statement. “Seattleites deserve a government that holds their full confidence and trust.”

Murray, a Democratic champion of social justice causes and a leader of the state’s same-sex marriage legalization effort, became Seattle’s first openly gay mayor after his election in 2013.

But the former state legislator withdrew his plans to run for reelection this spring as news outlets published reports of sex-abuse accusations against Murray in years past. Murray has repeatedly denied the accusations.

With the support of a majority of City Council members, Murray had planned to finish out the rest of his term before he abruptly stepped down this week.

Murray’s resignation came just hours after the Seattle Times published a new account from a younger cousin, Joseph Dyer, 54, a dialysis technician and Air Force veteran, who told the newspaper that Murray, now 62, sexually assaulted Dyer in Melford, N.Y., in the 1970s, when Dyer was 13. Murray would have been in his early 20s at the time.

“There would be times when I would fake sleeping because I didn’t want him touching me,” Dyer told the Seattle Times. “And that’s when he would molest me. And my mother would be right there in the house. She’d be in the living room … watching TV; at that time it was probably ‘M*A*S*H.’ And my sisters would be in their rooms, sleeping. And I would be in my room, and he would be in there, molesting me.”

Murray denied Dyer’s allegation. “There’s been numerous fights between our two families for many years, and much ugliness,” Murray told the newspaper before his resignation. “I guess they see me down and out, and they want to finish me off.”

Cary Moon, Durkan's opponent, called for Murray's resignation in May, and repeated the call Tuesday, saying in a statement it would be in "the best interests of everyone — especially the many survivors of sexual assault re-experiencing their own traumas — for the mayor to step down now so that City Hall can get back to work."

Moon accused Murray of attempting to "demean and even silence his accusers," labeling that as "deeply divisive to our community and triggering for survivors of sexual assault."

Pressure had been mounting on the mayor since April, when a man going by the initials “D.H.” filed a lawsuit alleging that Murray “raped and molested him” and paid him for sex starting in 1986, when the man was a 15-year-old high school dropout addicted to crack cocaine.

The lawsuit was later withdrawn. But the Seattle Times also revealed that two men, Jeff Simpson and Lloyd Anderson, had contacted the paper in 2008 to say Murray had sexually abused them as teenagers in the 1980s when he was in his 20s, though the paper did not initially publish their allegations.

The men had met Murray at a Portland, Ore., center for troubled children where they grew up and where Murray worked.

While in jail on drug charges, a fourth man, Maurice Jones, came forward and accused Murray of paying him for sex when Jones was a teenager.

Murray denied all the claims, pointed at the men’s criminal backgrounds and raised suspicions that the allegations were politically motivated — timed to interfere with his reelection effort this year. He announced in the spring that he would not seek a second term.

At the request of the Seattle Times, the state of Oregon unsealed records from the 1980s that showed that an Oregon Child Protective Services caseworker believed Murray had sexually abused Simpson.

The records also showed that a Multnomah County prosecutor had decided not to prosecute Murray not because she didn’t believe Simpson’s claims, but because he was too unreliable a witness to meet the burden of proof in a criminal case.

“I don’t think anybody should be tried in the court of public opinion,” Sawant said in an interview, but she added that “the mayor had failed in his duty as an elected official in the way in which he attacked the character of his accusers, saying they could not be trusted because they had troubled backgrounds.”

When sexual-assault survivors speak out, “they often face character assassination,” Sawant said, and she said it was the responsibility of elected officials to show solidarity with victims.

Chinese Crackdown on Cryptocurrencies Rattles Startups

Chinese Crackdown on Cryptocurrencies Rattles Startups

China’s move last week to ban initial coin offerings (ICO) has caused chaos among start-ups looking to raise money through the novel fund-raising scheme, prompting halts, about-turns and re-thinks.

http://www.trunews.com/article/chinese-crackdown-on-cryptocurrencies-rattles-startups

China is cracking down on fundraising through launches of token-based digital currencies, targeting ICOs in a market that has ballooned this year in what has been a bonanza for digital currency entrepreneurs. The boom has fueled a jump in the value of cryptocurrencies, but raised fears of a potential bubble. A partner at a venture capital fund in Shanghai, who didn’t want to be named because of the issue’s sensitivity, said:

>"This is not unlike the dotcom bubble of 2000. There are a lot of companies raising a lot of money for not very good ideas, and these will eventually be weeded out. But even from the big dotcom bust, you still have gems. One of the reasons regulators stepped in was that the ICO fever extended beyond the traditional crypto community. The timing was an attempt to pre-empt this before it goes into a much broader mass market in China."

Investors in China contributed up to 2.6 billion yuan ($394 million) worth of cryptocurrencies through ICOs in January-June, according to a state-run media report citing National Committee of Experts on Internet Financial Security Technology data. Pre-ICO roadshows featuring elaborate standing room-only presentations at 5-star hotels drew a diverse crowd, including grandmothers—a likely tipping point for regulators. The hype and subsequent crackdown came as China focuses on economic and social stability ahead of next month’s congress of the Communist Party, a once-in-five-years event. Beijing is also waging a broader campaign against fraudulent fundraising and speculative investment, which analysts attribute to China’s underdeveloped financial regulation and lack of legitimate investment options.

And now it’s the tallest.”

"and now it's the tallest."

Indeed.

And to all you trump supporters, you know it's okay to criticize him when he does something stupid right? He's not god. he makes mistakes (lots of them) Don't try to deflect it. Sometimes he's a moron. I just wonder what it takes to lose support, if not regularly-scheduled callousness like this. The other day he's telling hurricane survivors in a shelter to "have a good time" today he's telling everyone to look at how great he is honouring those lost on 9/11, while not actually paying tribute to anything but his own image. stay classy trump!

Depressed Sore Loser Hillary Clinton Tried ‘Alternate Nostril’ Breathing to Cope With Loss to Trump

Hillary Clinton turned to "alternate nostril" breathing to help cope with her stunning 2016 presidential election loss to Donald Trump.

Clinton revealed the various "tools" she relied on to get through the disappointment of losing the election at a fundraising event last Thursday to benefit Camp Olmsted. She said she relied on prayer, the support of friends, and spiritual readings.

The former secretary of state also revealed the more unorthodox methods she used.

"I did some yoga. I tried alternate nostril breathing. I highly recommend it. It kind of calms you down," she said at Riverside Church in New York City. "And, yes, I had my fair share of chardonnay."

Slate on Monday published an explainer describing what the stress-relieving method of alternate nostril breathing entails. Pulling from alternative medicine guru Deepak Chopra's website, Slate outlined the process:

>Alternate nostril breathing is a technique meant to calm the mind and alleviate stress. Breathing exercises are a fundamental part of yoga. Pranayama, the specific discipline that deals with controlling your breathing, comes from classic Indian yoga and has been around for centuries. It can be translated to "the control of the life force." Apart from alternate nostril breathing, there are also practices to breathe in deeply and expel the breath quickly; ones that focus on feeling the motions of your stomach while you breathe; and ones in which you hum or chant while exhaling.

http://www.rrdailyherald.com/news/local/consumers-of-natural-gas-propane-should-not-worry-about-rising/article_f190b08c-9035-11e7-aaef-5b64a290a28b.html

With gasoline prices rising in the wake of the havoc Hurricane Harvey is wreaking on the Gulf Coast, natural gas and propane con- sumers need not worry about rising prices.

Loree Elswick, a spokeswoman for Piedmont Natural Gas said while some sites may have been impacted, Piedmont’s supply sites are varied enough to not suffer a signi cant impact.

“The hurricane in Texas has not impacted the natural gas supply for Piedmont Natural Gas,” she said.

Keith Ballentine, vice president of Rocky Mount-based Daughtridge Gas and Oil, which deals in propane and other fuels, said the home heating market seems to be largely unaffected by the disaster.

“I don’t think it has affected anything with propane at this time,” he said, also pointing out it is not currently the season for home heating. Ballentine added there has been no impact on natural gas, though gasoline is a different matter.

“Unfortunately, gasoline is a commodity so it’s based on supply and demand,” he said. “Prices have been going up since the day before the hurricane hit.”

The shortage will also have an impact on other industries such as agriculture, due to a shortage of on and off road diesel fuel. Without off road diesel duel, vehicles such as tractors cannot operate.

“It’s rough on farmers,” Ballentine said. “If this thing doesn’t open back up soon, that’ll set them back.”

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.

Rick Wiles Warns High Probability of Attack on Sept. 11th, 2017

Rick Wiles Issues His Most Ominous Warning Ever

https://webmshare.com/play/aoLrv

In 1998, a very unusual series of events resulted in Rick meeting a wonderful Christian lady named Leah Mandell at a conference. Three years later, Leah made a very strange phone call to Rick on Aug. 11, 2001, which was precisely one month before the 9/11 attacks. When Rick answered his phone, Leah began telling him that "the alarms are ringing":

>She said, "Rick, something very odd is happening today. Alarm bells, everywhere I go today there are alarms ringing, car alarms, burglar alarms, fire alarms, even oven alarms, every place I go, I hear alarms ringing. What's really strange is people are having trouble turning the alarms off. I go into stores, the alarm is ringing. I go into an office, the alarm is ringing. And they can't get the things to turn off. The Lord told me, 'Call Rick Wiles and tell him, "The alarms are ringing, and this time, they will not be turned off."'" The moment she said that, Rick's seatbelt alarm started ringing even though his seatbelt was fastened. One month later was Sept. 11, 2001.

Exactly 16 years later, on Aug. 11, 2017, Leah called Rick again. She called to tell him that "the alarms are ringing" again and that she was seeing dead birds fall out of the sky everywhere…

>On Aug. 11 2017, Rick was driving to his church when suddenly a dead bird fell from the sky and smashed into his windshield. The bird did not fly into his path, but fell out of the sky like it was already dead. Then he received a phone call from Leah Mandell saying, "Rick, the alarms are ringing. Everywhere I go today, alarms are ringing. And there's something else, dead birds. I'm seeing dead birds. It seems like everywhere I go, there's a dead bird." Then he realized the date was Aug. 11, the same date when Leah had called him sixteen years earlier with a similar warning.

14-year-old Boy Reverses Gender Transition After 2 Years

>Patrick Mitchell from Australia began taking estrogen hormones at 12-years-old after “professionals” told his mother it was the “right choice”, following a diagnosis of gender dysphoria.

>“He grew out his hair and started to take the hormones, which caused his body to grow breasts. But two years on, Mitchell had a change of heart,” reported the Independent. “In the beginning of 2017, teachers at school began to refer to him as a girl which triggered Mitchell to question if he had made the right decision.”

>“Now, in a bid to revert back to his original body, he has stopped taking his medication and is about to have an operation to remove excess breast tissue in what will be the final stage of his transition,” they continued.

>After two years of transitioning, Mitchell reportedly told his mother, “I’m just not sure that I am a girl.”

Soros and Reptilians Controlling the World: Yair Netanyahu Posts Meme

>Ex-KKK leader David Duke comes to the defense of Prime Minister Netanyahu's son after he posts a meme that suggests a conspiracy is behind his family's growing legal problems

>Yair Netanyahu, the son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, posted a meme on his Facebook page on Saturday that seemed to suggest a conspiracy is behind his family's growing legal problems. The image was laden with anti-Semitic imagery.

>The meme, captioned "the food chain," features a photo of George Soros dangling the world in front of a reptilian creature, who dangles an alchemical symbol in front of a caricature of an apparent illuminati figure reminiscent of the anti-Semitic "happy merchant" image. The others figures in the chain are former Prime Minister Ehud Barak, anti-Netanyahu protest leader Eldad Yaniv and finally, Meni Naftali, a former caretaker of the Netanyahus' official residence who implicated Sara Netanyahu in the case she now is now being indicted for.

How almond prices and bee deaths sparked California's beehive theft problem

https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/how-almond-prices-and-bee-deaths-sparked-californias-beehive-theftproblem/article35908675/?ref=http://www.theglobeandmail.com&

California is filled with almond orchards but not enough bees to pollinate the crops. The situation has created a motive for desperate beekeepers to steal from their neighbours, Tamsin McMahon reports

When Jeff Anderson pulled up to the bee yard southeast of Sacramento, Calif., to check on his hives, it took him a minute to process that something was amiss.

A third-generation beekeeper who splits his time between winters in California and summers in Minnesota, Mr. Anderson was getting ready for the almond bloom, when roughly two-thirds of all the commercial beehives in the United States are trucked to California to pollinate the more than 1.2 million acres of almond orchards in the state.

He was on a conference call on his cellphone when he noticed patches of bare pavement among the pallets stacked with hives that he had laid across an abandoned road behind two locked gates. "It dawns on me that I should be up close to the bees and I'm not," he recalled of the brisk January day two years ago.

Thieves had made off with 96 of Mr. Anderson's hives, leaving behind a muddy winter glove and sets of tire tracks, which Mr. Anderson believes were made by a skid loader, a piece of heavy equipment. In total, Mr. Anderson estimates he was out almost $50,000 (U.S.) in lost income from the contract to rent the hives to an almond grower and the cost of replacing the stolen bees and equipment.

Beehive theft has exploded in recent years in California. Police estimate thieves have made off with about 2,000 hives across the state so far this year, after more than 1,500 went missing last year.

Rising almond prices have enticed farmers to devote more of their land to the crop, pushing up the rates to rent bees from about $150 per hive in 2013 to as much as $220 today. And beekeepers point to the high numbers of bee deaths, which have made it more expensive to maintain colonies and have created another motive for desperate beekeepers to steal from their neighbours.

Leaked Chats Show Charlottesville Marchers Were Planning for Violence

Well before a white nationalist “Unite the Right” demonstration turned deadly in Charlottesville this month, attendees were planning for violence, according to leaked online chats. In private chat channels, they shared advice on weaponry and tactics, including repeatedly broaching the idea of driving vehicles through opposition crowds. After the vehicular attack which killed counterprotestor Heather Heyer, users of the channel celebrated the event.

The discussions took place on a private channel created using Discord, a service primarily intended for gamers. Hundreds of screenshots of the exchanges were released this week by Unicorn Riot, a left-wing activist group, which said they were shared by an anonymous source. The records also included audio recordings of planning meetings.

While much of the discussion centered on flags, chants, and other forms of speech, the leaked exchanges also included advice on weapon construction. “You want something designed for longitudinal stress,” wrote one poster. “[Three] whacks and that thing is breaking.” Other topics included body armor and shield design.

Users also shared memes alluding to using vehicles against opponents.

SJWs demand Ist Canuck Prime Minister'S name be expunged from All buildings-he a raycist

Should John A. Macdonald's name be removed from schools? It is at least a question worth asking

or all that might seem to differentiate Canada from the United States at this particular moment, in one regard our political debates have converged this summer.

"Who's next, Washington, Jefferson?" Donald Trump tweeted on the morning of August 17, referring to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the first and third presidents of the United States, both of whom owned slaves. The target of Trump's ire was the removal of statues for Confederate leaders Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

'Rename schools and buildings named after Sir John A. Macdonald, in recognition of his central role as the architect of genocide against Indigenous Peoples.'

- Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario motion

Coincidentally, on that same day, a majority of delegates to the annual general meeting of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario agreed that the name of Canada's first prime minister should be removed from Ontario's public schools.

According to the motion, the union calls upon school districts "to examine and rename schools and buildings named after Sir John A. Macdonald, in recognition of his central role as the architect of genocide against Indigenous Peoples."

John Baird, the former Conservative minister whose government renamed a parkway and a historic building in Ottawa after Macdonald, denounced the motion as "one of the most crazy and ridiculous things" he'd ever heard, and an attempt "to erase Canadian history in the guise of an extreme and radical political correctness."

Baird also didn't support the Trudeau government's decision to remove the name of Hector Langevin from the building that houses the Prime Minister's Office.

AFN National Chief supports removing Macdonald's name from Ontario schools

(As foreign affairs minister, Baird reportedly had the name of the Lester B. Pearson Building, where his office was located, removed from his business card.)

It is easy to complain about "political correctness" or warn of a slippery slope.

It is harder to work through why someone should get a statue in their likeness or their name on a school.

The measure of Lee, Washington, Langevin and Macdonald

In a way, the Americans actually have it easier. It is relatively simple to draw a line that distinguishes Washington from Lee.

Lee's commemoration follows from the fact he was the general of the Confederate Army, a force that fought to preserve the slavery and oppression of black Americans. Washington, however flawed, was the leading force in the creation of the United States of America.

Activists from the anti-fascist movement known as antifa have recently come under fire because some - but not all - employ militant tactics and use violence as a means of getting their message across.

But now some of the group - a loose coalition of left-wing groups who oppose fascism, racism and sexism - are reportedly assisting with search and rescue and first aid.

Is Censorship Something to be Concerned about?

Right now, Google, Youtube, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook control the minds of the masses. The Internet, with its democratization of information, was supposed to prevent this.

I am confident that it still will. I just don't think it will happen through these huge giants.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I roll my eyes when people talk about the Illuminati. This isn't about that at all.

This is about worldview.

We observe that our society is polarizing. The dividing lines are based on our interpretations of reality. We enjoyed a window of time there where the Internet allowed a free exchange of worldview ideas.

It opened our eyes and minds to the good, the bad, the ugly and the really ugly. As the Internet grows up, the worldview divide shows itself and is now putting us into various ideological camps.

What can you do? Don't be surprised to see conservative search engines, video hosts and other sites start to pop up. I guarantee you that there is someone coding them right now.

This saddens me. I was enjoying using Youtube so much.

This censorship initiative is not the end of the world. Only Jesus determines that.

When they come for me, I'll just go somewhere else.

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.

http://www.trunews.com/article/russia-to-position-100000-troops-near-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.

Tinder: Science Confirms Women Want Chads- In Other News, Water Is Wet

Guys, unless you are really hot you are probably better off not wasting your time on Tinder — a quantitative socio-economic study

https://archive.fo/y5OCC

>This study was conducted to quantify the Tinder socio-economic prospects for males based on the percentage of females that will “like” them. Female Tinder usage data was collected and statistically analyzed to determine the inequality in the Tinder economy. It was determined that the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men. The Gini coefficient for the Tinder economy based on “like” percentages was calculated to be 0.58. This means that the Tinder economy has more inequality than 95.1% of all the world’s national economies. In addition, it was determined that a man of average attractiveness would be “liked” by approximately 0.87% (1 in 115) of women on Tinder.

>First, let’s define the Tinder economy. The wealth of an economy is quantified in terms its currency. In most of the world the currency is money (or goats). In Tinder the currency is “likes”. The more “likes” you get the more wealth you have in the Tinder ecosystem.

>Wealth in Tinder is not distributed equally. Attractive guys have more wealth in the Tinder economy (get more “likes”) than unattractive guys do. This isn’t surprising since a large portion of the ecosystem is based on physical appearance. An unequal wealth distribution is to be expected, but there is a more interesting question: What is the degree of this unequal wealth distribution and how does this inequality compare to other economies? To answer that question we are first going to need some data (and a nerd to analyze it).

>Tinder doesn't supply any statistics or analytics about member usage so I had to collect this data myself. The most important data I needed was the percent of men that these females tended to “like”. I collected this data by interviewing females who had “liked” a fake Tinder profile I set up. I asked them each several questions about their Tinder usage while they thought they were talking to an attractive male who was interested in them. Lying in this way is ethically questionable at best (and highly entertaining), but, unfortunately I had no other way to get the required data.

>As I stated previously the average female “likes” 12% of men on Tinder. This doesn't mean though that most males will get “liked” back by 12% of all the women they “like” on Tinder. This would only be the case if “likes” were equally distributed. In reality, the bottom 80% of men are fighting over the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are fighting over the top 20% of men. We can see this trend in Figure 1. The area in blue represents the situations where women are more likely to “like” the men. The area in pink represents the situations where men are more likely to “like” women. The curve doesn’t go down linearly, but instead drops quickly after the top 20% of men. Comparing the blue area and the pink area we can see that for a random female/male Tinder interaction the male is likely to “like” the female 6.2 times more often than the female “likes” the male.

>According to my last post, the most attractive men will be liked by only approximately 20% of all the females on Tinder. This number is low due to a combination of factors including females that don’t regularly use the site, fake profiles, intimidation, and some variation in what the pickiest women find attractive. In the grand scheme of things, a 20% success rate can actually lead to a large number of matches very quickly. So attractive guys can do pretty well using Tinder (congratulations).

>Unfortunately, this percentage decreases rapidly as you go down the attractiveness scale. According to this analysis a man of average attractiveness can only expect to be liked by slightly less than 1% of females (0.87%). This equates to 1 “like” for every 115 females. The good news is that if you are only getting liked by a few girls on Tinder you shouldn’t take it personally. You aren’t necessarily unattractive. You can be of above average attractiveness and still only get liked by a few percent of women on Tinder. The bad news is that if you aren’t in the very upper echelons of Tinder wealth (i.e. attractiveness) you aren’t likely to have much success using Tinder. You would probably be better off just going to a bar or joining some coed recreational sports team.

>On the other hand, it doesn’t take much effort to swipe right…

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.

State and local police,not feds,best protection against antifa terrorists

We have approximately 35,000 police officers in New York City alone, but fewer than 14,000 FBI agents in the entire country.

From a law-enforcement perspective, the best protection we have against domestic terrorism is state, city, and municipal police. They are vastly more numerous than federal law-enforcement agents.

The locals have more and often better intelligence sources at the street level, where domestic terrorism occurs, than their federal counterparts. Indeed, this is why the FBI invites robust local law-enforcement participation in its Joint Terrorism Task Forces, which are designed to combat both international and domestic terrorist operations on U.S. soil.

The violent radical leftist group that goes by the Orwellian name “Antifa” (anti-fascist) “is thuggish in its tactics and totalitarian in its sensibility,” as Rich Lowry forcefully put it in a column on Tuesday. It also engages in terrorism. The eye-test leaves no doubt about that.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/450906/antifa-berkeley-protest-turns-violent-again

Right this minute, in terms of confronting Antifa or any other domestic terrorist organization, we have a more robust array of state and federal law-enforcement powers than we have ever had. Moreover, coordination between federal and state law-enforcement and national-security officers is as good as it has ever been. All that is required to gut Antifa is the will to do it — the will to say, “Regardless of our disparate political views, we Americans draw the line at violent extortion that eviscerates our right to speak, assemble, and engage in constitutionally protected political activity.”

Felony charge for Based Stickman

http://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/

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.

Netanyahu Vows To Expel Africans From Tel Aviv

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday visited a rundown Tel Aviv neighbourhood with a large African population and pledged to rid it of illegal “infiltrators” and return control of the suburb to Jews after the non-Jews were expelled.

"We are dealing with illegal infiltrators, not with refugees, but illegal infiltrators. And Israel's right is to safeguard its borders and to keep away illegal infiltrators," he said.

"If needed, we will legislate an amendment to the law or change the agreements with the African countries, or both."

Speaking with residents, the Netanyahu also promised that the government would step up enforcement against asylum seekers 'in the face of those who employ them, in the face of the lawless infiltrators."

The next day he announced that his Toronto, Chicago and Cleveland shows on Logic’s “Everybody Tour” were cancelled due to “unforeseen circumstances,” leading to speculation that the cancellations might have something to do with vision problems.

Live Nation confirmed the cancellation. The Echo Beach concert, along with Logic and Big Lenbo, has been postponed until Sept. 28. Ticket holders can get a refund at the point of purchase until Sept. 8.

The 22-year-old Brooklyn rapper wasn’t the only one who looked directly at the sun on Monday.

Antifa ad on Craigslist,recruit for $25 an hr for protest in Charlottesville,BLM & KKK on same bus

Did Crowds On Demand Bus Rioters Into Charlottesville Virginia?

Crowds on Demand is a company that hires actors to attend rallies and protests. Crowds on Demand is founded by Adam Swart, a former political organizer for Jerry Brown.

On August 7th Crowds on Demand posted a Craigslist ad looking for actors and photographers. The ad was posted in Charlotte, NC which is about 4 1/2 hours away from Charlottesville Virginia.

On August 12th riots broke out in Charlottesville Virginia, which resulted in 1 death, 19 injuries.

Many witnesses claim that protesters were bused in. If protesters were bused in, is it really that far fetched that the craigslist ad is connected to the riot?

3 WHITE SKINNED 8o yr old brothers paper walls with kid porn,have missing girls stuff

Three elderly Seattle brothers arrested after cops discovered their stash of child porn, used children's underwear, penny loafers and soda bottles laced with vodka may be linked to missing 10-year-old girl

Three brothers arrested in a shockingly depraved child porn case may hold the key to an eight-year-old case of missing girl Lindsey Baum 2009 case as a flyer was found in their home

Charles Emery, 82, and his brothers Thomas, 80, and Edwin, 78, are currently in jail on $500,000 bond after a 'disgusting' stash of child porn was discovered in their home on a quiet street in Seattle

A hand-written manifesto detailing 'ritualistic and satanic sacrifices' of young girls was also discovered, along with descriptions of how the girls should always wear penny loafers before their murders

The three brothers, bachelors without children, each face two charges of possession of child pornography

On August 9 a relative took 'several large trash bags' full of child porn and clothing to the cops. The images were so disturbing that Seattle Detective Daniel Conine would only describe two of them

Conine said one was a full-frontal picture of a girl estimated to be between 8 and 10, wearing only pink and orange hairpins, with an electric drill in her hands

Two vintage cars found on the property - a ramshackle World War II-era Packard Super Eight convertible and a tan-colored Model A Ford built around 1930 - will be tested for DNA

Octogenarian Charles Emery stayed part-time in an isolated farmhouse in Shelton, Washington, just half an hour from the home where Lindsey Baum went missing.

Many of the items involve pictures of little girls being raped and murdered and cops believe all three of the brothers may have spent their entire lives living out their twisted fantasies.

The three brothers, all bachelors without children, each face two charges of possession of child pornography.

Also discovered were: 'dozens of pairs of children's shoes, most of which are penny loafer style shoes with pennies inserted in the front of the shoes; several pairs of minor female children style underwear containing stains and indicia of use; children's socks; dozens of books and articles related to child homicide, child sexual assault, and missing and murdered female child victims to include both local and national cases,' according to the complaint.

During interviews, police say both Thomas and Edwin Emery 'remained nonchalant and relatively unconcerned about the serious nature of the investigation.'

Edwin, cops say, 'confirmed that he is sexually attracted to females who are at the beginning of puberty, and usually around the age of 12.'

Thomas 'denied having any sexual interest in children, or anybody for that matter.' When asked why his brother had said he regularly gave him pornographic pictures, Thomas said Edwin must have misunderstood him, because he was asking for 'information about model houses.'

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

http://www.trunews.com/article/nato-calls-for-help-to-prepare-for-war-in-big-cities

(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.

Crab Invasion in Israel Captured in Unprecedented Footage

http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.808431?v=4EFE40FDB82DFB8C1382C1964C54092A

Work being done to rehabilitate the beaches in the Haifa area is one of the reasons for the swift spread of an invasive swimming crab, according to a study published this week. Covering the beach with sand created a convenient environment for reproduction, and from there the crabs moved to other beaches, endangering populations of local creatures.

The new study was published in the Journal of Natural History and was conducted by two researchers from the natural history museum in Florence, along with Dr. Bella Galil of the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History in Tel Aviv University and independent researcher Moti Mendelson.

Crab crisis: why you need to care

The sodden marsh breathes as thousands of punctures allow air to penetrate the mud. A world beneath stirs with underground creatures alerted to the retreating tide. A non-event from afar, but closer inspection reveals hordes of tiny crabs erupting onto the surface, ready to explore the daylight. But there’s limited time for play. The crustaceans have work to do.

They form a vital part of the ephemeral pan ecosystem in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, where Nasreen Peer first discovered them. The 26-year-old marine biologist completed her PhD research on the fascinating creatures through Nelson Mandela University. Peer has been intrigued by seaside ecosystems since childhood, having grown up in Port Shepstone on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast. There she explored rock pools and became absorbed by the ethereal worlds that spend half their time submerged in water and the rest exposed. Time didn’t shake her from these fantasies. It brought them to life, as Peer committed her career to the coast and its creatures.

“The small things matter a lot, not just the big visible things,” she says. In 2015, her PhD earned her the National Research Foundation’s coveted Research Excellence Award, which opened the door for her to work at iSimangaliso. Peer’s study of the crabs is crucial to their survival, as climate change threatens their future. By broadening our understanding of these creatures, Peer is enabling us to protect them. Her efforts are valiant, but they will be in vain if the global community does not heed the call to make the drastic changes needed to save our planet.

Unable To Recruit People To Bomb Children, Air Force Allowing Vets Back In So They Can Forced Duty

The Air Force is asking retired pilots to come back for a year to fix its ongoing pilot shortage

https://archive.fo/wHCrU

https://archive.fo/2AUVq

>At the end of fiscal year 2016 in September that year, the Air Force had 1,555 fewer pilots than it needed, including 1,211 missing fighter pilots.

>That shortfall is expected to increase, and the service has considered a number of steps to shore up its ranks, including broader recruiting, changing training requirements, increased bonuses, and even stop-loss policies.

>According to a release issued on Friday, the Air Force is now looking to have retired pilots return to the service for up to 12 months in positions that require qualified pilots, an initiative called Voluntary Rated Return to Active Duty, or VRRAD. It is speculated they will force them to stay longer with a backdoor draft via "stop-loss" measures.

>The service is looking for up to 25 retired fliers of any pilot specialty code — which includes bomber, fighter, helicopter, tanker, and remotely operated aircraft pilots — to fill "critical-rated staff positions" and allow active-duty pilots to stay with units where they are needed to meet mission requirements, the release said.

>Incentive pay, also called flight pay, will increase for all officers, with those who have over 12 years of service potentially seeing the biggest boost, up to a maximum of $1,000 a month. Incentive pay will also increase for enlisted aircrew members — up to a maximum of $600 for those with over 14 years of service.

>"The bonus is now being offered to a larger pool of pilots that includes those beyond their initial service commitments who have previously declined to sign long-term bonus contracts and those whose contracts have expired," Grosso added.

>In July 2016, Goldfein and Wilson's predecessor, Deborah Lee James, identified hiring by commercial airlines, whose pilots face mandatory retirement ages, as a main factor in the Air Force's loss of pilots.

>Previously, Congress authorized the Air Force to increase bonuses from $25,000 to $35,000 for pilots who agreed to extensions, though that was less than the $48,000 the service requested.

>With the current five- and nine-year extensions offered, a pilot could earn up to $455,000 in bonuses; the Air Force is also considering one- and two-year extension deals, Grosso said earlier this year.

tl;dr- Air Force can't find pilots to bomb children in the Middle East, and the Navy has a better deal for pilots, so they're offering huge bonuses to get pilots to re-enlist. They'll likely half a year later then initiate what's known as "stop-loss" to forcefully extend military contracts without the enlistee's consent in order to maintain their piloting force. E.G. A "backdoor draft." This is in the face of bomb shortages they're already undergoing which have forced the Air Force and Navy to recommission missiles/torpedoes that were decommissioned in the 90s.

Report: Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Discussed

Report: Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Discussed

U.S. Special Representative of International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt was directly involved in discussions last week with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that included moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

http://www.trunews.com/article/report-moving-u.s.-embassy-to-jerusalem-discussed

According to reports out of Israel, both sides wanted to discuss moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's most recent meeting with President Donald Trump's Middle East peace negotiating team. Netanyahu personally met with the president’s negotiating team, led by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, international negotiations representative Jason Greenblatt, Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman. Now, The Times of Israel is reporting:

>During that meeting, the embassy move “was brought up by both sides as part of a productive broad conversation about a number of issues,” a US source familiar with the discussions said Sunday, declining to reveal the specifics of discussion. Trump backtracked on the pledge in June, signing a waiver which pushed off moving the embassy for at least another six months. “Needless to say, the administration’s policy is ‘when not if,'” the source added, referring to statements US officials made when signing the waiver promising that the move would take place during Trump’s presidency.

That source’s account of the meeting was independently verified by a second source working in the Prime Minister’s Office. The Trump administration has repeatedly said the move will take place, stating it was only a matter of time.

Prominent Israeli rabbi preaches rape in war time

Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu is the Rabbi of the town of Safed, and is one of the most notoriously racist rabbis in Israel. Prosecutors twice considered indicting him for breaking the law against incitement, and twice backed down. He has publicly said he will not condemn “price tag” attacks (by settlers on Palestinians), saying “if the government won’t act, then the public should” (Hebrew). His most notorious act was signing a petition demanding no Jew rent or sell apartments to a non-Jew in his town of Safed; 300 rabbis joined the call. While the act was openly racist, and illegal, the Israel law against incitement to racism specifically excludes “religious debate” from the law; thus the case against Eliyahu was closed (Hebrew). Eliyahu’s ongoing racism, however, is likely to have cost him the 2013 election of the office of Chief Sephardic Rabbi, though he came relatively close (he got 49 votes, the winner got 68). Eliyahu, a member of the Chief Rabbinate Council, also failed to get elected in 2014 as rabbi of Jerusalem; at the time he was reputed to be the candidate of the Jewish Home (Hebrew).

An Israel blogger, Ruhama Weiss, exposed yesterday (Sunday) an old ruling (from 2002) of Eliyahu regarding the thorny issue of rape during war, the mizvah of the Comely Woman. Those who read Hebrew can read the original here. Below is a translation of Eliyahu’s reply. Be advised: the text is rather brutal and I endeavored to keep the translation as close as possible to the original.

Remember the guy claiming to have been stabbed by an antifascist? Turns out he stabbed himself

http://denver.cbslocal.com/2017/08/28/stabbing-joshua-witt-neo-nazi-steak-shake/

A man who told police that he was asked by a stranger whether he was a neo-Nazi before that stranger stabbed him has been arrested for making up the story.

Joshua Witt posted pictures of his stabbing wounds on his Facebook page right after the alleged attack. That post gained a lot of attention in the aftermath of this month’s violent protests in Charlottesville.

Witt, 26, says when he went to get out of his vehicle at the Steak & Shake in Sheridan, a man walked up to him and asked whether he was a neo-Nazi before stabbing him.

Witt also posted that he is serving in the U.S. Navy.

Witt told police his attacker was a black man and that he ran towards the bike path the runs along the Platte River.

Police investigated Witt’s claim but became suspicious because his story didn’t match up with the evidence.

Officers located a man who matched the description Witt provided. He is a transient who lives in the area and was cleared as a possible suspect.

Investigators said that video surveillance did not show anyone running from the scene as Witt described.

Video surveillance from inside a sporting goods store showed Witt buying a small knife minutes before the alleged attack.

When police re-interviewed Witt, he admitted to accidentally cutting himself with the knife while parked in his car in front of the sporting goods store. He also admitted making up the story about being attacked.

Witt was booked and released on false reporting charges. If convicted, Witt could face up to $2,650 in fines and up to one year in jail.

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.

The Nikkei Asian Review, a Japanese business journal, reported last week that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un had his half-brother murdered earlier this year in response to a 2012 Chinese plot to replace him in a coup. When President Xi Jinping told President Donald Trump his country didn’t have the sway over North Korea that everyone assumed, he may have been telling the truth. According to the report, relations between China and its diminutive neighbor are at “all-time lows” because of the aforementioned plot. The report states:

>The drama began on Aug. 17, 2012 with a meeting in Beijing between Kim Jong Un's uncle Jang Song-thaek, who … is said to have proposed a plot to oust Kim Jong-un and replace him with his elder half-brother Kim Jong-nam with China's backing. It was a dramatic proposal, but Hu was not in a position to give a definitive answer. Just days before, at the annual Beidaihe gathering with party elders, his predecessor and rival Jiang Zemin had exposed a scandal involving Hu's right-hand man Ling Jihua, severely weakening Hu's position … Having learned of Jang's plot through a wiretap, [Zhou Yongkang] secretly informed Kim Jong-un … Upon hearing of the treachery, the North Korean leader flew into a rage and at the end of 2013, his uncle was executed. Kim Jong Nam, the elder brother who Jang had favored, was murdered with a super-toxic nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur International airport on February 13 this year.

The report also suggests that recent North Korean missile provocations have been aimed at China just as much as the U.S. It notes that a May intermediate-range missile test was meant to send a message from Kim to Xi: “Our new ballistic missile can strike anywhere in China.”

ESPN Pulls Announcer from Football Game Because His Name is ‘Robert Lee’

ESPN has announced plans to pull an announcer named Robert Lee from calling a University of Virginia football game. Because his name is Robert Lee.

A statement from ESPN reads:

"We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue."

Two Men Arrested in Connection With Charlottesville Violence

The police arrested two men, including a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and were seeking a third in connection with violent episodes that took place at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., this month, including the beating of an African-American man that was caught on video and widely shared on social media.

The arrests came two weeks after the Aug. 12 rally, which brought hundreds of white supremacists to Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general. The day was marked by skirmishes between demonstrators and counterprotesters, and a 32-year-old woman, Heather D. Heyer, was struck and killed by a car in what the authorities have called a terrorist attack.

The police were widely criticized for not doing more to stop violence throughout the morning.

The beating victim, DeAndre Harris, 20, was cornered in a parking garage just yards from Police Headquarters, where he was attacked by six men who had gathered for the rally. Mr. Harris has a broken wrist and sustained a head injury that required 10 staples, his lawyer, S. Lee Merritt, said.

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

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.

Indian court rules against instant divorce

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-41008802?ns_mchannel=social&ns_campaign=bbc_breaking&ns_source=twitter&ns_linkname=news_central

India's top court has ruled the practice of instant divorce in Islam unconstitutional, marking a major victory for women's rights activists.

In a 3-2 majority verdict India's Supreme Court also stayed the practice.

India is one of a handful of countries where a Muslim man can divorce his wife in minutes by saying the word talaq (divorce) three times.

The landmark court decision came after it considered petitions challenging the so-called "triple talaq" custom.

The cases were filed by five Muslim women who had been divorced this way and two rights groups.

No tip for US waitress with LGBT tattoo (cover up or keep your opinons to yourself!)

Waiting staff in the US rely heavily on their tips to make up for their low wages because of jewish wage laws, but one server in Rockford, Illinois, was surprised to find the reason for the lack of a gratuity written on a receipt.

"Can't tip someone who doesn't love Jesus! Bad tatoo [sic]" wrote the customer, instead of a tip, for Samantha Heaton (dyke), who bears rainbow-coloured equality bars on her arm, and has been serving at Buffalo Wild Wings for a year.

"It was shocking. I couldn't help but feel hurt," Samantha told the BBC (maybe don't show your opinons on your arm at work?). "I would've openly discussed my tattoo with them, had they asked. I talked to them about their food. They kept me constantly busy, but were not openly rude to me.

I've never had someone write anything like this.

Her friend Joelle Nicole Maish posted a photo of Samantha's tattoo, along with the receipt on her own Facebook page, writing: "I would just like to say that being gay does not mean you don't believe in God or Jesus (in her opinon). And people who are 'religious' should not disrespect or act in such ways to other people (maybe homos should not be flamers). PS, they spelled tattoo wrong (they must be dumb redneks lol).

>The 27-year-old pop star left fans scratching their heads as she completely wiped clean her social media accounts Friday.

>Swift mysteriously unfollowed all of her followers online, deleted all posts from Instagram and Tumblr, as well as completely eliminated all content on her website, resulting in a black screen.

>Her last tweet is currently one from 2010 that’s for country singer Miranda Lambert

>Swift currently has 102 million followers on Instagram, but all viewers will see is a white screen with zero photos of the star.

>It’s unknown whether Swift is currently taking a break from social media, is dealing with an internet hack, or if she's simply gearing up to release a new album.

>Swift recently donated a “generous” amount of money to “Law & Order” actress Mariska Hargitay’s foundation that helps sexual assault victims.

>Swift’s donation follows her win in court Monday against former Colorado radio DJ David Mueller. He sued Swift after he was fired from his job alleging that she, along with her mother and radio liaison Frank Bell, were trying to destroy his career.

>She countersued and claimed Mueller put his hand under her skirt while being photographed with her. The jury sided with Swift.

>A rep for Swift didn’t immediately return a request from Fox News for comment concerning her social media wipe-out.

US's largest anti-Muslim group cancels dozens of rallies after seeing size of anti-fascist crowds

The largest anti-Muslim group in the US is cancelling dozens of planned rallies having witnessed the number of anti-right wing protesters who gathered in Boston to demonstrate against white nationalists.

ACT for America was scheduled to hold 67 rallies in 36 states on September 9 to show its support for the “common sense America First” policies proposed by Donald Trump. The group claims the policies “prioritise real protection over political correctness, and celebrate American exceptionalism”.

But after thousands of people turned out to protest against white nationalism and white supremacy in Boston last weekend - a show of strength that led the organisers of the so-called free speech rally to cut short the event - ACT has said it is calling off its own rallies and will hold an online day of action instead.

U.S. court throws out Texas voter ID law supported by Trump

A U.S. court on Wednesday threw out a Texas voter identification law that was supported by the Trump administration, but Texas attorney general Ken Paxton said his office would appeal the federal court ruling.

The court's ruling said changes to the law passed earlier this year by the state's legislature that were meant to be less discriminatory than an earlier one did not accomplish that.

U.S. District Court Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of the Southern District of Texas said the state does not allow enough types of photo IDs for voters, "even though the (5th District Court of Appeals) was clearly critical of Texas having the most restrictive list in the country."

"Today's ruling is outrageous," Paxton said in a statement, adding that changes to the law passed by the Republican-controlled Texas legislature included all of those asked for by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that includes Texas.

Polack beauty found hanged at Brit school after being 'bullied for being Polish

A 16-year-old girl found hanged in school toilets was taunted for being Polish, an inquest has heard.

Dagmara Przybysz, who was a pupil at Pool Academy in Redruth, Cornwall, was found in toilets near the maths department in May 2016.

Dagmara's mother said in a statement that her daughter had been called names, and had overheard racist comments such as "stupid Pole".

The teenager, who had lived in Britain with her family for nine years, had also told her boyfriend that she had been told to "go back to your own country".

U.S. Open to Providing Weapons to Ukraine

U.S. Open to Providing Weapons to Ukraine

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is signaling his support for suppling the Ukraine with weapons. During a visit to that country Thursday, Mattis said Washington would keep up pressure on Russia over what he called its aggressive behavior.

http://www.trunews.com/article/u.s.-open-to-providing-weapons-to-ukraine

>"Despite Russia's denials, we know they are seeking to redraw international borders by force, undermining the sovereign and free nations of Europe," Mattis told reporters, alongside Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

Relations between Ukraine and Russia went into freefall after Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the subsequent outbreak of a Kremlin-backed separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine that has killed more than 10,000 people.

While emphasizing Trump had yet to take a decision on the issue, Mattis signaled his personal support for a longstanding Ukrainian request for defensive weapons, which could include anti-tank Javelin missiles and anti-aircaft systems. According to U.S. officials, a plan to provide defensive weapons to Ukraine has made its way to the White House but has not been signed. Thus far the Pentagon says it has provided $750 million in non-lethal aid to Ukraine since 2015, which includes radars and uniforms.

ZOG media campaign by the jews at the bbc and their shabbos goys to clear antifaggot action

sensible activists are using fake Twitter accounts and images of battered women to smear violent communist groups in the US, an online investigation has revealed.

The online campaign is using fake Antifa (not an umbrella term for anti-fascist protestors but a specific group of hired communist thugs) Twitter accounts to claim anti-fascists promote physically abusing women who support US President Donald Trump or white supremacy (just a larp but you know they would, they'd probably punch a pregnant white womans stomach tbh).

Jewish Researcher Eliot Higgins of the mi5 funded fake investigation website Bellingcat found so called evidence that the campaign is being orchestrated on internet messageboard 4Chan by far-right sympathisers.

One image shows the slogan "53% of white women voted for Trump, 53% of white women should look like this", above a photograph of a woman with a bruised and cut face and an anti-fascist symbol.

The woman pictured is actually British actress Anna Friel and the photograph was taken for a Women's Aid anti-domestic violence campaign in 2007.

and what about the time the bbc used a picture from iraq in a report about syria? the point then was to make emphasis which is just what this online campaign does for the alt right.

(sic. https://www.infowars.com/bbc-caught-in-syria-massacre-propaganda-hoax/ and thread photo)

Eliot Higgins, who traced """"""""evidence""""""""""""""" of chemical weapons use in Syria (despite major evidence it is a false flag, https://i.imgur.com/lEDWebl.png), found evidence the anti-Antifa campaign was organised on 4Chan, which has a reputation for acting as a meeting place for sensible groups, and runs a "politically incorrect" board with people frustrated with the obsessive political correctness of media such as the bbc.

Mr Higgins posted a screenshot of a call to action on the message board, which encouraged so called far-right but actually left disatisfied libertarians to search online for images of domestic violence, add their own slogan such as "She deserves it for being a Nazi," then post them on social media using pre-determined hashtags.

The campaign appears to aim to rightly discredit Antifa groups at a time of them attacking peaceful protestors in the United States after 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed when protesting by striking a car over and over instigating retaliation along with a crowd at a "far-right" march in Charlottesville last week.

Following the march, US President Donald Trump accused left-wing groups of being as equally to blame as far-right protestors for the violence wihich was actually false the alt right were peaceful and antifa cause the trouble, drawing widespread condemnation for equating the two by the ZOG fake news media such as cnn who led the narratve parroted throught the fake media.

Mr Higgins told the BBC their propaganda and this campaign was "pretty clumsy", with obvious signs of being orchestrated (just like "bellingcat" and the bbc which is owned by the british government).

"Many of the accounts tweeting the images were clearly made in the last ten hours and had very few followers," Mr Higgins explained. yep that's how every campaign on tiwitter is started dumbass, i don't hear you complaining when #likeagirl was trending on fake accounts.

"This was a transparent and quite pathetic attempt at propaganda by the british government with a state media outlet and a fubious "investigation" group, but I wouldn't be surprised if globalist groups try to mount more sophisticated propaganda attacks in the future."

'Serial liar' jailed after bogus rape claims

A "serial liar" who made a series of bogus sexual assault allegations against 15 men has been jailed.

Jemma Beale falsely claimed she was raped by nine men and sexually assaulted by six, all strangers, in four encounters spanning three years.

One allegation led to the conviction of a man who was jailed for seven years.

The 25-year-old from Hounslow was found guilty of perjury and perverting the course of justice following a six-week trial at Southwark Crown Court.

Beale, who was in a relationship with a woman, was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith said in sentencing: "This trial has revealed, what was then not obvious, that you are a very, very convincing liar and you enjoy being seen as a victim.

CHINA CENTRAL BANK CONTINUES BATTERY TECH TAKE-ALL

China using battery tech to stave off its credit collapse and central planning mismanagement.

It has been slowly building over the years since 2005: Mining buy-outs, distribution controls, focusing first on small consumer electronics, pushing for embedded and near infinite form factor lithium-ion designs, etc. It follows the same trajectory of photo-voltaic (solar) industry, which Solyndra/Obama facilitated in true globalist fashion (likewise, all of the Chicago energy consortiums, 'Green' tax credit scam/hand-outs to foreign companies, and others). So this is nothing new, just a leaf from a bag already pushed over. More of a status update.

Where this matters is -not- that the USA should fall for globalist solar/battery/space 'race' nonsense. Where it matters is that, as seen above, it wastes time, resources, manpower, and most of all distorts true economic signal from birth to death. Where it also matters, is in creating grid, stand-alone, and consumer device industry-wide dependency (eg, battery tech already controlled in consumer devices, but these don't have access to infinite govt funds and grants that come with utility contracts).

With this endless distortion and fake 'competition', it may prove imperative to use Amazon to attain the embargo and trade war controls the USA govt and bank has never had the will to stop (rather, flourish on). Since the opposite is likely to occur, it may prove useful for everyone to try to break out of this in any way possible. It is not that the USA should race into a bridge to no where, but rather burn it into 95% tariff and/or outright embargo.

For historical perspective prior to this, see 1998-2008 with Taiwan and its cornering of the PbSO4 lead acid battery tech. Which the whole of the united states transport and building/datacenter industries depend on, and now still do, entirely captured outside of a few scattered locales.

It does matter, especially over time. What I have witnessed over the last 15yrs, is the disappearance of so many shops and facilities unable to afford the necessary components when needed, and companies shutdown like clockwork after 'standardized' inferior product lies take over.

Violent Gangs Banned from Birmingham

The two-year orders aim to disrupt gang-related violence between the Burger Bar Boys and Johnson Crew.

West Midlands Police said it was "a landmark ruling".

The orders follow a spate of firearms offences in the city in 2015 and 2016, but the gangs have struck fear across parts of Birmingham for many years.

Russia Prepares ‘Inevitable’ Response to U.S. Sanctions

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov hit out at the latest round of U.S. sanctions against Russian entities and citizens for their involvement in North Korea's weapons of mass destruction program. He said Washington is systematically destroying bilateral relations with his country in a process begun by President Barack Obama.

http://www.trunews.com/article/russia-prepares-inevitable-response-to-u.s.-sanctions

Reacting to the latest round of U.S. sanctions, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov issued a statement Wednesday expressing disappointment and warning that an "inevitable” response is coming. Ryabkov’s statement read:

>The U.S. side continues to systematically destroy bilateral relations under a trend set by the Barack Obama administration. This is the fourth such incident since the new team took over the White House. Against this deplorable backdrop, statements by U.S. representatives about a desire to stabilise bilateral ties sound highly unconvincing. Then again, when the U.S. adopted the well-known anti-Russia law, it also cited the striving to improve our relations as the main motivation. We have always advocated and will continue to advocate efforts to resolve our existing differences through dialogue. Over the past few years, Washington should have grasped the idea that we consider the language of sanctions to be unacceptable, and that such actions only hamper the resolution of real problems. So far, however, it appears that they have failed to comprehend these obvious truths. Nevertheless, we are not losing hope that the voice of reason will prevail sooner or later, and that our American colleagues will come to realise the futility and detrimental nature of further sliding down the spiral of sanctions. In the meantime, we will get down to charting the retaliatory measures that are inevitable in this situation.

Russia has not indicated what form those retaliatory measures might take.

Five days after President Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants.

“Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders,” Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies.

Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220, and immigration agents are on track to deport 10,000 fewer people this year than in President Obama’s last year in office, the latest figures show.

Jerry Lewis is dead.August 20, 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Bob Hope and MAYBE George Carlin were the lAST ONES to die

Jerry Lewis, the brash slapstick comic who became a pop culture sensation in his partnership with Dean Martin and then transformed himself into an auteur filmmaker of such comedic classics as “The Nutty Professor” and “The Bellboy,” has died in Las Vegas. He was 91.

Lewis died at his home in Las Vegas at about 9:15 a.m. Sunday morning, his agent confirmed.

For most of his career, Lewis was a complicated and sometimes polarizing figure. An undeniable comedic genius, he pursued a singular vision and commanded a rare amount of creative control over his work with Paramount Pictures and other studios. He legacy also includes more than $2.5 billion raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the annual Labor Day telethon that he made an end-of-summer ritual for decades until he was relieved of the hosting job in 2011.

But Lewis’ brand of humor did not always wear well as times and attitudes changed. Over the last 10 years of his life, his reputation soured slightly as he was forced to apologize for making a gay slur on camera during the 2007 telethon, continued to make racist and misogynistic jokes, and didn’t hesitate to share his right-wing political views.

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.”

>A LOCAL council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target, in a shock move that religious leaders say has caved in to Islamic extremism and created a dangerous precedent.

>The decision, which has rocked the longstanding Jewish community in the iconic suburb, was upheld in court this week as the nation reeled from the alleged airline terror threat and debate raged over increased security measures at airports and other public places.

>The Land and Environment Court backed the decision by Waverley Council to prohibit the construction of the synagogue in Wellington St, Bondi — just a few hundred metres from Australia’s most famous beach — because it was too much of a security risk for users and local residents.

>Jewish leaders are shocked the decision appears to suggest they cannot freely practice their religion because they are the target of hate by Islamist extremists — and that the council has used their own risk assessment of the threat posed by IS against it.

>The head of the local Jewish community said the council and the court had effectively stifled freedom of religion and rewarded terrorism.

>“The decision is unprecedented,” Rabbi Yehoram Ulman told news.com.au.

>“Its implications are enormous. It basically implies that no Jewish organisation should be allowed to exist in residential areas. It stands to stifle Jewish existence and activity in Sydney and indeed, by creating a precedent, the whole of Australia, and by extension rewarding terrorism.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

> 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.

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.

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.

‘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.”

Boston free speech protests: Far-right demonstrators 'outnumbered 10 to 1 by anti-fascists'

In Boston, hundreds of police officers were positioned around a park where one group planned to hold a so-called Free Speech rally with right-wing speakers. Thousands of counter-protesters who believe the event could become a platform for racist propaganda, were gathering about two miles away with plans to march on the rally, according to the Associated Press.

Police officers placed barricades to prevent vehicles from entering the park, the nation’s oldest. To keep the two groups separate, they also built a cordon around the site of the rally.

>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.”

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.

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.

Steve Bannon fired as Trump White House's top strategist

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is the latest top aide of President Donald Trump to leave his post.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Friday was his last day.

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.

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.

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.

HEIL OUR PEOPLE!

I'll be posting a list of such cases:

A race traitor (white that doesn't use La Virgen de Guadalupe as the symbol of white supremacy) got fired! Look at the face of this subhuman loser, he doesn't have a job anymore! RACE TRAITOR BTFO HAHAHA XD

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/

Random Man Interviewed By MSNBC, NYYT Is Deep State Shill Linked to George Soros & John Podesta

Random Man at Protests Interviewed By MSNBC, NY Times Is Deep State Shill Linked to CIA, George Soros & John Podesta

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.

This one (from Power): https://archive.fo/p6Fj9

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.

http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-07-14-why-you-shouldnt-try-to-escape-america-to-avoid-the-coming-collapse-and-subsequent-chaos.html

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.

In 2012, they were convicted of espionage and sentenced to eight years in prison each.

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.

http://www.trunews.com/article/iranian-parliament-death-to-america

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.

Is Hitler's curse real?

I've been seeing race traitors (whites that don't use La Virgen de Guadalupe, and opt for (((swastikas)))) getting what they deserve.

I'll be posting a list of such cases.

HEIL OUR PEOPLE!

A race traitor (white that doesn't use La Virgen de Guadalupe as the symbol of white supremacy) got fired! Look at the face of this subhuman loser, he doesn't have a job anymore! RACE TRAITOR BTFO HAHAHA XD

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/

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.”

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.

http://www.trunews.com/article/experts-kim-jong-un-has-a-non-nuclear-trump-card

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?

Charlottesville's Jewish Mayor Attacks Trump After Car-ramming

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va - Mike Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, attacked U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday morning, telling CNN in an interview: “Look at the campaign he ran.” He called on people from all political and religious backgrounds to join forces and fight back against racism, and expressed hope that the president would do the same.

A white supremacist rally in the town turned violent on Saturday and a man rammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one. Trump responded to the incidents by condemned the violence "on many sides."

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

https://archive.fo/P6gTC

>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. Meter) is located in Simferopol, which is reported in the prosecutor's declaration. This real estate is owned by the Crimean prosecutor's office.

>Transparency International has filed a claim to the State Duma chairman Vyacheslav Volodin with a request to verify information from Poklonskaya’s declaration and deprive her of the mandate, in case investigators confirm this information. In addition, the organization sent a letter to Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika with a request to check legality of using an apartment in Simferopol by Poklonskaya, which should be transferred to her successor.

>Earlier, Yabloko party demanded to check why the State Duma deputy did not include information on her husband and on a car (she was assessed a transport tax) in her declaration, yet she had repeatedly stressed in her interview that she had a "wonderful family - her husband and a child." In her interview with RIA Novosti, Natalia Poklonskaya said that she always kept her private life in secret, because "everyone has the right for personal space." As it turned out, she "broke up with a man she was going to marry" and did not say about it, because she "did not want to give hope to her fans". As for the car, the woman said she gave it to her father.

Jewish artist causes Twitter to increase censorship

>http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/APFN_EU_GERMANY_TWITTER?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

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.

http://www.trunews.com/article/nyt-north-korea-got-its-icbm-engines-from-u.s.-ally

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.
