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A Chinese company offering sex dolls for rent has withdrawn its services just days after launching.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

Germany:Silly Trump“Promoting coal at climate summit is like promoting tobacco at a cancer summit”

The Trump team was heckled and interrupted by a protest song at the UN’s climate change summit in Bonn on Monday after using its only official appearance to say fossil fuels were vital to reducing poverty around the world and to saving jobs in the US.

While Donald Trump’s special adviser on energy and environment, David Banks, said cutting emissions was a US priority, “energy security, economic prosperity are higher priorities”, he said. “The president has a responsibility to protect jobs and industry across the country.”

Other attendees at the summit condemned the argument.

“Promoting coal at a climate summit is like promoting tobacco at a cancer summit,” said Michael Bloomberg, the former New York mayor and a UN special envoy for cities and climate change.

When questioned, just one of the four energy executives Trump’s team chose to speak at the event expressed support for his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris climate agreement.

At the only official event put on by the US government at the two-week summit, Banks said,trying to keep a straight face: “Without a question, fossil fuels will continue to be used and we would argue that it is in the global interest that when it is used it is is clean and efficient as possible.”

Anti-gay lawmaker resigns after getting caught with cock in his anus

An Ohio state lawmaker who was vehemently anti-gay has resigned after he was allegedly caught with a cock in his ass from a man in his office.

Wesley Goodman, 33, was elected last year after working for the Conservative Action Project, according to Cleveland.com. He also worked for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

His public image of a conservative, married, anti-gay straight man was at odds with his private life, according to the Washington Post. That newspaper reported that he was driven out of the conservative "Council for National Policy" after he tried to pull the pants off the teenage son of a Republican donor in a hotel room in the middle of the night.

Goodman's wife is an assistant director of the March for Life.

Discovery of mysterious void deep within Great Pyramid of Giza

Muon-detecting sensors have revealed a huge cavity hidden within the pyramid – the first major structural find since the 19th century

Archaeologists have uncovered a mysterious enclosure hidden deep inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, the oldest of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

The massive cavity stretches for at least 30 metres and lies above the grand gallery, an impressive ascending corridor that connects the Queen’s chamber to the King’s in the heart of the historic monument. It is the first major structure found in the pyramid since the 19th century.

It is unclear whether the void is a chamber or a corridor, or whether it played any more than a structural role in the pyramid’s construction – such as relieving weight on the grand gallery below. But measurements show that it has similar dimensions to the grand gallery, which is nearly 50 metres long, eight metres high and more than a metre wide.

Airlines agree $95.2m payout to Silverstein over hijacked planes used on 9/11 ZOG False Flag

(((Insurers))) for American Airlines and United Airlines will foot part of a $95.2 million damage claim brought by the developers of the World Trade Center, after the buildings were destroyed by two hijacked passenger jets on September 11, 2001.

>The iconic pillars of New York’s financial district collapsed when hijackers flew two planes belonging to the airlines into the Manhattan island buildings. Around 3,000 people died in the false flag attack masterminded by kikes.

After a protracted 13-year legal wrangle, American Airlines and United Airlines have reached a multi-million dollar settlement with Silverstein Properties, Reuters reported. Representatives for the airlines declined to comment to RT.com on the settlement.

A spokesperson for Silverstein Properties confirmed the settlement. "We are pleased to have finally reached a resolution to this piece of post-9/11 litigation. We are currently devoting our attention to the ongoing construction of 3 World Trade Center, which we will open in the spring, and to the development of 2 World Trade Center," he told RT.com by email.

"Loud, racist and extreme-right activists have hijacked Poland’s Independence Day celebrations in Warsaw. United under the “We Want God” slogan, nationalist activists held banners which read “Death to the enemies of the homeland,” amongst others.

The so-called ”Independence March,” to celebrate Poland’s rebirth as a nation in 1918, was organized partly by neo-fascist groups such as National-Radical Camp (ONR), the National Movement (RN) and the All-Polish Youth (MW) groups. The nationalist rally, according to police estimates, drew a crowd of roughly 60,000 activists, with some youths wearing balaclavas.

Highlighting an important element of Polish nationalism and its strong identification with the Roman Catholic Church, thousands assembled under the theme, "We want God," as far-right activists marched through the streets of Warsaw."

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.”

Judicial fears of racism allow an animal to continue its life of crime, terror and death

A witness to the deadly rampage inside a Maryland granite company said Thursday that the suspect, Radee Prince, had gathered a small group of his co-workers together by saying “come with me, I want to say something to everybody.” Without another word, he opened fire.

Prince is accused of fatally shooting three colleagues and critically wounding two others. Authorities said he then drove to Wilmington, Delaware, and shot an acquaintance at a used car lot. He was captured after a 10-hour manhunt.

Prince faces charges of murder, attempted murder, assault and use of a firearm to commit a felony. At his arraignment Thursday in Delaware, he pleaded not guilty.

The man said once the group gathered around, Prince shot Enis Mrvoljak, 48, of Dundalk. Then, Bayarsaikhan Tudev, 53, of Arlington, Virginia. He also killed Jose Hidalgo Romero, 34, of Aberdeen, authorities said.

Tudev’s widow told AP that her husband was so worried about Prince’s temper that he prayed about him.

“He was always angry,” Gerelmaa Dolgorsuren said her husband told her about Prince.

Prince had 43 arrests in Delaware. He has faced charges of being a felon in possession of a gun, was habitually late paying his rent, was repeatedly cited for traffic violations, and was ordered to undergo drug and alcohol counseling in recent years.

He had at least two other violent run-ins with co-workers. In 2014, he put a colleague in a chokehold because he thought he was talking about Prince, a manager told police. Prince dragged the co-worker outside and slammed him to the ground, causing him to lose consciousness.

Prince was charged with offensive touching, but the case was dismissed last year. It’s not clear why.

Earlier this year, Prince was fired from JPS Marble and Granite after he punched a co-worker and threatened other colleagues, according to court documents. His former boss became so scared of Prince after he was fired that he tried to take out a restraining order on him. A judge didn’t grant it.

Late Thursday, authorities identified the wounded in Maryland as Enoc Villegas Sosa, 38, and Jose Roberto Flores Gillen, 37. They remain in critical condition.

Police in Delaware have not updated the condition of the victim there, but have said he is expected to survive. Prince was accused last year of punching that man and trying to rob him, said Nicole Magnusson, a spokeswoman for the Delaware Department of Justice.

He was charged with robbery and offensive touching, but that case was also dismissed. It’s not clear why.

Likely Scamming for a Book Deal, Muh Stronk Independent Womyn's Tale of Survival Gets Debunked

HONOLULU (AP) — Two Hawaii women who say they were lost at sea on a sailboat for months never activated their emergency beacon, the U.S. Coast Guard said, adding to a growing list of inconsistencies that cast doubt on their harrowing tale of survival.

The women previously told The Associated Press that they had radios, satellite phones, GPS and other emergency gear, but they didn’t mention the Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon, or EPIRB.

A Coast Guard review of the incident and subsequent interviews with the women revealed that they had an EPIRB aboard their boat but never turned it on.

A retired Coast Guard officer who was responsible for search and rescue operations said that if the women had used the emergency beacon, they would have been found.

“If the thing was operational and it was turned on, a signal should have been received very, very quickly that this vessel was in distress,” Phillip R. Johnson said Monday in a telephone interview from Washington state.

Johnson described the device as sturdy and reliable, but added that old and weak batteries could cause a unit not to function.

Appel and Fuiava also said they had six forms of communication that all failed to work.

“There’s something wrong there,” Johnson said. “I’ve never heard of all that stuff going out at the same time.”

The two women met in late 2016, and within a week of knowing each other decided to take the trip together. Fuiava had never sailed a day in her life.

Key elements of the women’s account are contradicted by authorities, and are not consistent with weather reports or basic geography of the Pacific Ocean. The discrepancies raised questions about whether Appel and her sailing companion, Tasha Fuiava, could have avoided disaster.

On their first day at sea, the two women described running into a fierce storm that tossed their vessel with 60 mph (97 kph) winds and 30-foot (9-meter) seas for three days, but meteorologists say there was no severe weather anywhere along their route during that time.

“We were empowered to know that we could withstand the forces of nature,” Appel said.

The pair said they thought about turning back, but the islands of Maui and Lanai didn’t have harbors deep enough to accommodate their sailboat. At 50 feet (15 meters) long, the vessel is relatively small, and both islands have harbors that accommodate boats of that size. Plus, the Big Island — the southernmost island in Hawaii — has several places to dock.

Days later, after parts of their mast and rigging failed, they sailed up to another small island, still with a working motor, but decided against trying to land, believing the island was mostly uninhabited with no protected waters.

“It is uninhabited. They only have habitation on the northwest corner and their reef was too shallow for us to cross in order to get into the lagoon,” Appel said.

But Christmas Island, part of the island nation of Kiribati, is home to more than 2,000 people and has a port that routinely welcomes huge commercial ships.

More than five months after they departed, they were picked up in the western Pacific about 900 miles (1,448 kilometers) southeast of Japan. The two women and their dogs were all in good health when picked up by the U.S. Navy.

Purple Haired Negress Savagely Beats Daughter for Incorrectly Reciting Bible Verses: Gets Prison

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman who beat and tried to strangle her daughter for incorrectly reciting Bible verses has been sentenced to prison.

Forty-one-year-old Rhonda Shoffner was sentenced Wednesday to 2½ to five years in prison after pleading guilty to charges including aggravated assault of her daughter, who was younger than 13.

Police say the girl was forced to kneel on the bathroom floor at Shoffner’s Middletown home and repeat Bible verses. They say Shoffner slammed her head into the wall each time she made a mistake. They say Shoffner also told the child she was going to kill her and attempted to strangle her.

Police say the girl fought off Shoffner, who told her to leave and never return. The girl called her father, who drove her to a police station.

Governor of Maine: Niggers and Spics are the Enemies and should be SHOT

The governor of Maine has said that people of colour were enemies of his state, and appeared to suggest they should be shot.

Speaking about Maine's effort to combat drug crime, Paul LePage said that "the enemy right now… are people of colour or people of Hispanic origin".

"When you go to war… and the enemy dresses in red and you dress in blue, then you shoot at red," he said.

Leading Democrats have urged him to resign.

Mr LePage was asked about a statement he made in January, in which he blamed the state's heroin problem on "guys by the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty" who "come from Connecticut and New York".

"They come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave," he said.

Speaking on Wednesday, he denied it was racist, but said that since January he had been putting together a binder cataloguing drug arrests in the state, and that "90-plus per cent of those pictures in my book, and it's a three-ringed binder, are black and Hispanic people".

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.”

Kremlin Orders Russian Companies to Promote "Good News"

The Russian leadership has told major companies to supply it with news stories that put its stewardship of the country in a positive light, according to documents seen by Reuters.

A seven-page document spelled out the kind of articles required, with a focus on new jobs, scientific achievements and new infrastructure, especially those involving state support. It also detailed how the stories should be presented, and gave a weekly deadline for submissions.

The drive coincides with the run-up to a presidential election in March next year when President Vladimir Putin needs a strong mandate with high turnout to maintain his firm grip on power after dominating Russian politics for two decades.

A spokesman for Kiriyenko did not respond to a request for comment. The energy ministry also did not respond, nor did Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Reuters sent requests for comment to the biggest five companies out of the 45, by market value - state-owned oil major Rosneft, state-owned gas giant Gazprom, private oil companies Lukoil and Surgutneftegaz, and private gas firm Novatek. No responses were received.

The Kremlin’s biggest headache with the election, scheduled for next March, is ensuring a strong turnout, say many political analysts.

With the economy weak and many people viewing the result as a foregone conclusion, voters may be tempted to stay away from polling stations. A low turnout could undermine Putin’s legitimacy in his next term, the analysts say.

MGTOW: It's Men's Fault That Girls Behave Like Whores

>"The language boys use to discuss sex and sexual acts is degrading and shows a lack of understanding of consent and the actual mutual respect required to have meaningful sex. "The girls, equally, are taught not to respect their own bodies and don't comprehend the notion that they may be being used. "There was one time when one of the girls, who was 14, was really upset and said to me, 'I sucked his dick and he doesn't love me - he told me he loved me and he doesn't.'

>"I don't think anyone can say a 14 or 16-year-old girl has performed these sex acts and enjoyed it - they just go along with it. "They're going along with it at the time, it's almost like it's an honour that they're chosen, especially if it's a popular boy, almost like a validation of their appearance and attractiveness - or they think it is. "I don't think these girls are aware of their vulnerability. I think these girls - 14 plus - will look back and think, 'Yeah, I was coerced into that.'

>"You need to make the girls realise they are being objectified and used and make them aware they are vulnerable to this sort of thing.

>"I think the boys are quite clever, they tend to go for the ones who can be manipulated - not all boys obviously.

>My single mum worked late nights in a factory. I didn't know I could and should say no. I did think it made me feel special.

>I've just found out that my 14-year-old daughter has gone on the pill and is having sex with a boy one year older than her. I've tried talking to her and asking whether she has been pressurised into having sex but she says she's not.

>I didn't say no, but I regret that because I haven't seen or heard from him since it happened and I know why. He didn't love me, he was only using me.

>When I was 14, there were boys saying these things, and worse, every day. There was a ridiculous amount of pressure to be clean-shaven in school - and I didn't even have any sexual partners.

>They suffer the occasional feminist rant with good grace. I also leave a few art photography books, maybe a not too sexy underwear catalogue lying around. Images of happy healthy smiling girls, with pubic hair (of course).

>Never for my own pleasure, but to boost my self-esteem and to validate that I was attractive to the opposite sex. An incredibly sad truth and one that I was only able to admit to myself very recently and, after speaking with friends about it, one which seems to be true among many bright and attractive young women.

lesbian couple beat 5-year-old son with hammer

https://archive.fo/woHof

Two women in Oklahoma were sentenced to 20 years in jail on Friday after reportedly beating a 5-year-old so badly that he suffered two strokes.

A judge in Muskogee County sentenced Rachel Stevens, 29, and her partner Kayla Jones, 26, to 20 years behind bars on charges of felony child abuse by injury and child neglect, according to court records obtained by Tulsa World.

The pair reportedly pled no contest to the charges in a plea deal agreement.

According to a police affidavit, the 5-year-old, who is Stevens' son, was locked in a room, bound up and had duct tape covering his eyes, Tulsa World reported.

The boy reportedly told investigators that his mother and her girlfriend beat him with a belt. Police also claimed in the affidavit that Stevens hit her son’s hand with a hammer and Jones “kicked him so hard in the groin that it made him bleed.”

The police investigation began after the boy was taken to a medical clinic in December 2015 for reported seizures and lesions on his face, Tulsa World said.

Because his condition was so serious, the boy was reportedly transferred to the hospital, where doctors discovered he had several broken bones and was malnourished, prompting them to call the police, the affidavit said.

While in the doctor’s care, he reportedly suffered two strokes due to trauma.

A failed 'Swedish flag' game shows the decline of the extremist british propaganda program

Internet pranksters (actually the bbc see http://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/149981109/) tried to start a hoax campaign to change the cross on the Swedish flag to a Turkish-style crescent and star which is of course the basis of a common meme from that website. Although a few people were tricked, the lacklustre response to the campaign co-ordinated on 4chan by the bbc could be a sign that the extreme anglo propaganda influence on internet culture and the world in general starting to wane.

A surprisingly small audience takes news stories about de beers "lifting" botswana out of poverty or news about war crimes commited by a "saudi led coalition*" with a straight face.

*including britain and america among many eu allies

The petition on campaigning site Avaaz.org was written in strident, over-the-top language by someone trying to mimic a sjw activist (much like the ones that force many to turn off the bbc):

"The Swedish flag is a constant reminder of our dark and oppressive past (much like munroe bergdorff on newsnight)."

Refugees and migrants are forced to live under its Christian Cross; a symbol of the Crusades and the slaughter of millions of innocent Islamic lives in Sweden's past that makes them feel unwelcome and unsafe. Sweden should be a safe space for everyone (eerily echoing a genuine segment on newsnight about how america had racism in its "dna")….

…Prior to the rise of the alt-right, the most notable political movement to emerge from 4chan was the anti-establishment hacker collective Anonymous (which is one and the same).

The loosely organised movement holds annual pro citizen, anti-government protests in London and other major cities on Guy Fawkes Day (although alot of it is a government scheme to enter protests unseen with masks). The number of marchers at this year's event in the UK capital was down on previous years *cites dubious statistics from met police*.

Despite slickly produced " fake adverts" , slogans posted in Swedish and English, "fake Photoshopped news stories" (like this on from trending) and a huge amount of chat over multiple threads on the /pol/ board, the flag hoax failed to really take off. Mainly because people smelt a rat on /pol/ and the 4chan board has seen many manipulators.

So it failed to have much impact,which is a metaphor for bbc trending in general broadcasting stories about skateboarding pandas after newshour to capture a "young,trendy" audience for british government propaganda.

Swedish woman raped by refugee commits suicide after prosecutor claims “lack of evidence”

A Swedish woman who was raped by a Syrian refugee in March this year has committed suicide. The horrible news was made public by Swedish investigative journalist Joakim Magnus Lamotte.

The woman chose to end her life by overdosing on her medication; she felt devastated in aftermath of her violent rape and the failure to prosecute the perpetrator exacerbated her sense of low worth. She was raped in her own apartment during the evening and according to involved Swedish investigative journalist Lamotte she reportedly told police:

“Her neighbour, Adnan, together with his friend Samir [not their real names], came to her apartment late one evening in spring. Because Angelica had taken sleeping pills, she is unsure about the exact timing, but she remembers Adnan pushing her into the bedroom, using violence to force her on her bed and holding her down and raping her. The experience is extra painful because Angelica has inserted a tampon, that is now pushed so far inside of her, that she can’t get it out normally the next day. While she is being raped, Samir is somewhere in the apartment.“ [sic]

Russia BTFO: Google to 'derank' Russia Today and Sputnik

Google is to "derank" stories from Kremlin-owned publications Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik in response to allegations about election meddling by President Putin's government.

Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt said the search giant needed to deal with the spread of misinformation.

RT has been described by US intelligence agencies as "Russia's state-run propaganda machine".

And in November, RT was forced to register itself as a '"foreign agent" by the US Department of Justice. The broadcaster is fighting the order in court.

Putin Unironically Tells Governors: “Rotation is a natural and self-evident process”

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Poised to run for a fourth term, President Vladimir Putin has started clearing out the old Russian political elite and says he’s bringing in young people with “fire in their eyes.”

But a Reuters analysis shows that he has made limited progress so far.

The Reuters analysis of political appointments shows, that in the cabinet, the upper house of parliament, the Security Council and the presidential administration, the pace of change has slowed and the average age is almost three years higher than when he began his third term in 2012.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on the findings. He said it would take too long to check the data.

With no change expected at the very top, critics say the lack of fresh blood translates into a dearth of fresh ideas to stimulate politics and the economy.

“There are similarities with the era of (Soviet leader Leonid) Brezhnev in that we’ve fallen into a malign stability from which there’s no way out,” Dmitry Oreshkin, an independent political analyst, told Reuters.

“For Putin there are no risks because the system works and obeys him,” said Oreshkin. “The risks are for the country and the economy. The model of stability is underpinned by a system of loyalty and corruption. Outside Moscow, which is rich, there is stagnation.”

Critics say the Kremlin’s emphasis on youth is window-dressing designed to create the illusion of political change in a system bereft of real competition.

Up to two thirds of Russians want some kind of societal or political change that would raise living standards, some opinion polls show, and turnout in last year’s parliamentary election fell to a post-Soviet low.

Putin has received a succession of newly-minted regional governors in his Kremlin office live on state TV and hosted two groups of glum-looking ex-governors.

“Rotation is a natural and self-evident process,” he told one group of five ex-governors in February.

Some Kremlin watchers say the newcomers are all Putin loyalists whom he can easily influence if he exits office in 2024 and assumes a father-of-the-nation role.

Communism’s Bloody Century

A century ago this week, communism took over the Russian empire, the world’s largest state at the time. Leftist movements of various sorts had been common in European politics long before the revolution of Oct. 25, 1917 (which became Nov. 7 in the reformed Russian calendar), but Vladimir Lenin and his Bolsheviks were different. They were not merely fanatical in their convictions but flexible in their tactics—and fortunate in their opponents.

Communism entered history as a ferocious yet idealistic condemnation of capitalism, promising a better world. Its adherents, like others on the left, blamed capitalism for the miserable conditions that afflicted peasants and workers alike and for the prevalence of indentured and child labor. Communists saw the slaughter of World War I as a direct result of the rapacious competition among the great powers for overseas markets.

But a century of communism in power—with holdouts even now in Cuba, North Korea and China—has made clear the human cost of a political program bent on overthrowing capitalism. Again and again, the effort to eliminate markets and private property has brought about the deaths of an astounding number of people. Since 1917—in the Soviet Union, China, Mongolia, Eastern Europe, Indochina, Africa, Afghanistan and parts of Latin America—communism has claimed at least 65 million lives, according to the painstaking research of demographers.

Liberals PBS Charlie Rose & Sen Al Franken are male sexual assaulting pigs

Eight women have accused Charlie Rose, the longtime TV host who appears on both PBS and CBS, of sexual harassment, the Washington Post reports. Per the Post, the allegations include "lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas" and stem from alleged incidents between the late 1990s and 2011. All of the accusers worked or aspired to work on the "Charlie Rose Show."

The big picture: Earlier on Monday, Vox reported on allegations of sexual harassment against the NY Times' Glenn Thrush. There have been at least 16 high-profile men in the media industry accused of sexual misconduct since allegations emerged against Harvey Weinstein.

Keep reading 281 words

PBS says it is "shocked" by the allegations and "immediately suspending distribution" of the Charlie Rose Show. CBS News said it will immediately suspend Rose. Bloomberg is also right away suspending the Charlie Rose show from airing on Bloomberg TV and radio. "We are deeply disturbed to learn of these allegations," the company said in a statement.

One accuser, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, worked as Rose's assistant in the mid-2000s and says he used to appear naked in front of her and make sexually explicit phone calls to her. She says she complained to Rose's assistant, who brushed the accusations aside as "Charlie being Charlie." When she told a friend about Rose's alleged behavior, she says, he fired her.

Democratic Sen. Al Franken Accused by Second Woman of Sexual Assault

Franken has been accused of groping a woman's behind, a few days after apologizing to LA radio host Leeann Tweeden

A second woman came forward Monday with allegations against Democratic Sen. Al Franken. According to CNN, Lindsay Menz claims Franken groped her behind in 2010.

Talking to CNN, Menz said the incident took place while she was posing for a photo with Franken at the Minnesota State Fair, where she was promoting her father’s business.

As her husband was about to take a picture of the two, Franken pulled “in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear. It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek.” She said she was left feeling gross.

Last week, Los Angeles radio broadcaster Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of touching her breasts while she slept. Franken forced a kiss on her in 2006 when he was still a comedian and the two were preparing to perform before U.S. troops in the Middle East, she said.

According to a report from Mobile, AL CBS affiliate WKRG, “at least one person” in their viewing area had received a robocall seeking “damaging information about Roy Moore.”

The robocall, captured in a voicemail recording by Creola, AL pastor Al Moore, is from a man claiming to be a Washington Post reporter by the name of “Bernie Bernstein” and offers a “reward” for “damaging remarks.”

“Hi, this is Bernie Bernstein, I’m a reporter for The Washington Post calling to find out if anyone at this address is a female between the ages of 54 to 57 years old willing to make damaging remarks about candidate Roy Moore for a reward of between $5,000 and $7,000.

Marshawn Lynch, Who Deserves to be Lynched, Kneels For Our National Anthem, Stands for Mexico's

Oakland Raider Marshawn Lynch again protested the U.S. national anthem Sunday at a game against the New England Patriots in Mexico by sitting during The Star-Spangled Banner, but standing during the Mexican national anthem.

While there did not appear to be any other anthem protests ahead of the game in Mexico City, the Raiders running back sat down for a majority of the U.S. anthem.

Lynch has not stood for The Star-Spangled banner since he came out of retirement this season to join the Raiders.

Other NFL members playing in America, however, protested ahead of their games.

Most players, who protest during the anthem to address social justice issues, put a pause on kneeling during the anthem last weekend in honor of Veterans Day.

#BlackMonday: White Farmers in SA Protest Against Black Oppression, Violence and Murder

Demonstrators are blocking motorways in South African in protest at the murder of white farmers.

The BBC's Pumza Fihlani in Johannesburg says the protests are already causing racial divisions after some demonstrators were seen carrying the flag from the apartheid era, when South Africa was governed by its white minority and black people were not allowed to vote.

The protest was organised to show outrage at the killings of farmers, especially after the death of a white farmer in Klapmuts near Stellenbosch.

Last Tuesday, Joubert Conradie, 47, was shot on his farm and died later at the Stellenbosch Mediclinic.

'''Trump May Move to Cripple “Church” of Scientology'''

The “church” of Scientology has long been a controversial issue as many people view it as not so much as a legitimate religious organization, but more of a wealthy cult that operates as a sort of tax haven due to its tax-exempt status.

But that may be changing in the near future, as President Donald Trump is reportedly in favor of revoking that exempt status, according to the Huffington Post.

Hollywood actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini — who left the “church” in 2013 and has since been an outspoken advocate against it — was contacted with messages in May from a Trump family friend and current official of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Lynne Patton. Patton revealed that revoking the tax-exempt status of the church was something both she and Trump were interested in.

“From the moment I saw your series I told President Trump & his family we needed to revoke their tax exempt status,” Patton messaged to Remini on May 30. “They couldn’t agree more, but please don’t publicize that yet. I want to do more due diligence on what the IRS has attempted in the past (or maybe you can enlighten me), then I’ll identify who we need to connect with again.”

Land Of The Free: Baltimore Police Investigating “Confederate Lives Matter” Facebook Posts

Someday, we’re going to have college classes detailing the methods used by the Jews to destroy our freedom of speech – by God’s grace they won’t succeed.

It’s playing out differently than in Germany (essentially written into their Constitution), and it’s different than in Britain (they used straight up legislation to create “hate speech”), but at the end of the day the final result will turn out to be the same.

In America, expect the use of the term “LEGAL PRECEDENT” to become more and more common, with charges based at first on the idea that to call out Blacks, invaders, the Killers of Christ, and various sexual deviants is tantamount to criminal harassment.

Once the ball gets rolling, you’ll see district attorneys, judges, and lawsuit lawyers jumping on the bandwagon more and more, with citations increasingly made to the original cases as justification for their suppression of rights.

Never mind the fact that many of these suspects will be held on simple one-off internet comments (not how harassment is legally defined), for it remains a basic part of human nature that many will ignore the onslaught out of a sense that as long as it only impacts trolls, nothing is being destroyed.

more coons in cities than rural areas

I wonder if something similar happens to humans? Does this explain why technological advance sped up after the first cities were formed?

Unlike many animals, Nogs “flourished rather than receded in the face of human expansion,” Pettit points out in an article for the American Psychological Association.1 Part of the reason for their success may be that the urban environment has contributed to their intelligence. In humans, the effect is well known. Educational psychologist Walkiria Fontes has compared the cognitive abilities of rural and urban children on two metrics: crystallized intelligence, which is associated with experience, and fluid intelligence, which is the ability to think logically and solve problems in novel situations, independent of acquired knowledge. She found that urban rich kids have the edge with both kinds of intelligence. But even poor urban students scored better than poor rural students in fluid intelligence.

City Nogs also appear smarter than their rural counterparts. Suzanne MacDonald, a comparative psychologist who studies Nog behavior at York University in Toronto, has compared the problem-solving skills of rural and city Nogs. The result? Urbanites trump their country cousins in both intelligence and ability. For the past few summers, she videotaped rural and urban racoons toying with containers baited with cat food. While both rural and city racoons readily approached familiar containers, they dealt differently with unfamiliar ones. Where rural Nogs took a long time to approach novel containers, city Nogs would attack them the moment she turned her back.

One particularly persistent urban Nog even learned to open doors leading into MacDonald’s garage, where she keeps her garbage bins. It stood up on an overturned flowerpot, and kept pulling and pushing on the round knob of the door handle with its five-digit paws until it turned. “Normally, they can’t do that, they can’t grasp and turn things very easily,” MacDonald says. “Nogs in the city are extraordinary, not only in their ability to approach things, but they have no fear, and they stick with it, they will spend hours trying to get food out of something.”

Treadwell also noted how quickly his subjects learned. “They do go around trying systematically different things around that bin, they play until something moves and then they keep working at that,” Treadwell says.

The city itself may be partly to blame. “Cities are machines for learning. They offer a maelstrom of activities,” says Harvard economist Edward Glaeser, author of Triumph of the City. “I’m sure it must be for animals as well, a range of possibilities to learn from and learn about.” Cities might have proved particularly beneficial to Nogs because of their innate boldness. MacDonald says bold and curious animals like nogs make good learners.

Battered Men's Shelter Opens in Texas

DALLAS (AP) — A Texas group has opened what’s believed to be only the second shelter in the U.S. exclusively for men who are victims of domestic violence, as advocates say more men are seeking help amid changing views about male victims.

Valley Oasis in Lancaster, California, says it was the first in the U.S. to accept men into its shelter. “It created an environment where maybe for the first time for female victims and male victims that they could actually talk to members of the opposite sex that were not going to hurt them, that were not going to degrade them,” said CEO Carol Crabson, who said the shelter houses victims in cottages on its campus.

“I could just see that they were in the situation, but they didn’t have anybody that they thought they could call. In speaking with them, that was what they would tell you as well: ‘Where am I going to go? Who’s going to believe me? Here I’m a big guy, and who is going to think that I’m telling the truth?’ It just got me thinking,” Duncan said.

“They don’t have to put on a strong kind of ’I’m OK,’” she said, adding, “Their feelings can be hurt. They can be sad. They can be angry and they’re not seen as being aggressive. They can talk about how it felt to be physically hit and not feel emasculated.”

Hines said some men don’t even realize they’re being abused until they read pamphlets — mostly geared toward women — listing abuse signs. “If you are the man, that’s a very difficult process to figure out,” she said.

A 35-year-old man who spent almost three months at The Family Place’s shelter said he went there after feeling threatened by his boyfriend. Because his boyfriend didn’t physically hurt him, he said he hadn’t necessarily thought of his situation as abuse.

Coconut crabs (Birgus latro), also known as robber crabs, are an imposing sight. They can weigh up to 4 kilograms, as much as a house cat. This makes them the largest invertebrates – animals without backbones – on land. The crabs live on coral atolls in the tropical Indian and Pacific oceans."

Yael Kushner Has Her Filthy Little Hands All Over Daddy's Russian Real Estate Dealings

Exclusive: How an alleged fraudster in Panama, working with Donald Trump's daughter, helped make Trump's first international hotel venture a success. The broker was in business with a money-launderer and two criminals from the former Soviet Union.

In the spring of 2007, a succession of foreigners, many from Russia, arrived at Panama City airport to be greeted by a chauffeur who whisked them off in a white Cadillac with a Donald Trump logo on the side.

The limousine belonged to a business run by a Brazilian former car salesman named Alexandre Ventura Nogueira, who was offering the visitors a chance to invest in Trump’s latest project – a 70-floor tower called the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower.

A Reuters investigation into the financing of the Trump Ocean Club, in conjunction with the American broadcaster NBC News, found Nogueira was responsible for between one-third and one-half of advance sales for the project. It also found he did business with a Colombian who was later convicted of money laundering and is now in detention in the United States; a Russian investor in the Trump project who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s for kidnap and threats to kill; and a Ukrainian investor who was arrested for alleged people-smuggling while working with Nogueira and later convicted by a Kiev court.

Three years after getting involved in the Trump Ocean Club, Nogueira was arrested by Panamanian authorities on charges of fraud and forgery, unrelated to the Trump project. Released on $1.4 million bail, he later fled the country.

The Bitfinex Dilemma: Blow up now, or try a Hail-Mary to retain in business

>On April 3rd, 2017, just two days before Bitfinex was about to file a major lawsuit against Wells Fargo (which bitfinex admitted was frivolous), they announced that they had ‘paid back’ all of their tokens.

>They successfully convinced token holders into buying equity, and they printed enough Tethers to pay off the remaining holdouts (which they could only withdraw by buying Bitcoin…further inflating prices)

>Just as they said they ‘paid back’ their tokens, Wells Fargo, the last bank willing to process their transactions, cut off all services on March 23rd.

>Bitfinex essentially had the rug swept up from under them. An exchange is completely dead without banking. It’s a water park with no water. A movie theater with no movies. A peanut butter jelly sandwich with no peanut butter or jelly. A nothingburger.

>They essentially had two options.

>Option 1. Shut down the exchange until they re-establish banking, process USD withdrawals via their “settlement” setup with their lawyers. Shareholders go into panic mode, lose market share to legitimate exchanges, end result, exchange dies, shareholders who converted their debt to equity… bag holders.

>Option 2. Fraud. Start artificially inflating the price of bitcoin to influence a mania while trying to re-acquire banking, ensure that the price of Bitcoin NEVER falls so that new money is always trying to come into the exchange and they can process some withdrawals to keep some people happy.

>Use any means possible to ensure prices never fall.

Suicidal Children Recover Within Days of Being Separated from their Migrant Parents

For nearly two decades Sweden has been battling a mysterious illness. Called Resignation Syndrome, it affects only the children of asylum-seekers, who withdraw completely, ceasing to walk or talk, or open their eyes. Eventually they recover. But why does this only seem to occur in Sweden?

When her father picks her up from her wheelchair, nine-year-old Sophie is lifeless. In contrast, her hair is thick and shiny - like a healthy child's. But Sophie's eyes are closed. And under her tracksuit bottoms she wears a nappy. A transparent feeding tube runs into Sophie's nose - this is how she has been nourished for the past 20 months.

Sophie and her family are asylum seekers from the former USSR. They arrived in December 2015 and live in accommodation allocated to refugees in a small town in central Sweden.

As more Swedes began to worry about the consequences of immigration, these "apathetic children", as they were known, became a huge political issue. There were reports the children were faking it, and that parents were poisoning their offspring to secure residence. None of those stories were proven.

It remains the case that children from particular geographical and ethnic groups are the most vulnerable: those from the former USSR, the Balkans, Roma children, and most recently the Yazidi. Only a tiny number have been unaccompanied migrants, none have been African, and very few have been Asian. Unlike Sophie, the children affected have often been living in Sweden for years, speak the language and are well-adjusted to their new, Nordic lives.

So how can an illness respect national boundaries? There is no definitive answer to that question, says Sallin, who is researching Resignation Syndrome for his PhD. "The most plausible explanation is that there are some sort of socio-cultural factors that are necessary in order for this condition to develop. A certain way of reacting or responding to traumatic events seems to be legitimised in a certain context." So somehow - and we do not know the mechanism for this, and why it should happen in Sweden - the kind of symptoms displayed by the children are culturally sanctioned: this is a way the children are allowed to express their trauma. If that is the case, it raises an interesting question: could Resignation Syndrome be contagious? "That is sort of implicit in the model. That if you provide the right sort of nourishment for those kinds of behaviours in a society, you will also see more cases," says Sallin.

But evidence from the town of Skara in the south of Sweden suggests that there is a way of curing children with Resignation Syndrome even if the family doesn't receive permanent residence. "From our point of view, this particular sickness has to do with former trauma, not asylum," says Annica Carlshamre, a senior social worker for Gryning Health, a company that runs Solsidan, a home for all kinds of troubled children.

That family connection must be re-built, but first the child must begin to recover, so Solsidan's first step is to separate the children from their parents.

"We keep the family informed about their progress, but we don't let them talk because the child must depend on our staff. Once we have separated the child, it takes only a few days, until we see the first signs that, yes, she's still there…"

The Richest (((1%))) Now Own More Than 50% of the World’s Wealth

The richest 1% now owns more than half of all the world’s household wealth, according to analysts at Credit Suisse. And they say inequality is only going to get worse over the coming years, with millennials having a particularly tough time.

The Swiss bank released its latest Global Wealth Report on Tuesday, together with a statement that contained the immortal phrase, “The outlook for the millionaire segment is more optimistic than for the bottom of the wealth pyramid.”

The research showed that there are increasing numbers of dollar millionaires. This is partly because the strength of the euro has created 620,000 more of them in Germany, France, Italy and Spain (conversely, depreciating currencies in the U.K. and Japan have seen 34,000 and over 300,000 people in those countries respectively lose the status)

But almost half of the new dollar millionaires are in the U.S. itself. “So far, the Trump Presidency has seen businesses flourish and employment grow, though the ongoing supportive role played by the Federal Reserve has undoubtedly played a part here as well, and wealth inequality remains a prominent issue,” said Michael O’Sullivan, CIO for International Wealth Management at Credit Suisse.

Credit Suisse expects to see a 22% rise in dollar millionaires by 2022, from 36 million to 44 million. The problem is, the numbers of adults who have less than $10,000 are expected to shrink by only 4%.

NASA Tests Supersonic Parachute for Mars 2020 Rover

The Mars 2020 rover project is in full swing at NASA, and the agency has chosen to base the new rover on the phenomenally successful Curiosity design. That means the rover needs to slow down in the Martian atmosphere before engaging its rocket-based landing system. NASA has just completed the first real-world test of the supersonic parachute that’ll help the rover do that.

When the 2020 rover enters Mars’ atmosphere, it’ll be moving at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second), and it’ll weigh around 2,000 pounds like curiosity. You need a big parachute to slow something like that down, and the problem is much more complex on Mars. Earth’s atmosphere is much denser than Mars, so the parachute needs to be extra large to produce enough drag. Lower atmospheric pressure also changes the way parachutes deploy, and that was the focus of the first test.

Earth isn’t Mars, but there are still ways to test parts of the 2020 mission in the real world. The behavior of the chute can be tested at high altitudes where pressure is lower. These tests are now underway in a program known as the Advanced Supersonic Parachute Inflation Research Experiment (ASPIRE). In the just-completed first trial, a small Black Brant IX rocket was launched from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The rocket reached Mach three as it ascended to an altitude of about 31 miles (50 kilometers), where the first stage dropped off.

8 yr old aussie girl killed drag racing over 60 mph,dad so proud on faceboo

The idea of an 8-year-old behind the wheel of a drag racing car, which even in its scaled down children’s version can hit speeds of 60 mph and beyond, may seem daunting. But by all available accounts, Anita Board, was excited, not scared. Her sister, three years older, was already a junior dragster in Western Australia, where the sport has a modest following, and Anita was thrilled to follow in her tracks.

Though just a little girl (“I’m six feet and she came up to my hip,” said Mike Sprylan) she was fearless. And with the approach of her eighth birthday last week, the minimum age for a junior dragster license set by the Australian National Drag Racing Association, she was as pumped as a kid can get.

A few weeks earlier, she and her sister had taken their cars in for a safety inspection. Their father, Ian Board, proudly posted on his Facebook page a picture of the two of them beaming, Anita with her purple “Pony Power” model and her sister with her blue and black “Night Fury.”

David Copafeel Strikes Again! George HW Bush Grabs a Sexy Sixteen Year Old Girl's Hot Ass

Roslyn Corrigan was sixteen years old when she got a chance to meet President Bush. Then, he groped her.

“My initial reaction was absolute horror. I was really, really confused,” Corrigan told TIME, speaking publicly for the first time about the encounter. “The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything. What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States? Like, ‘Hey dude, you shouldn’t have touched me like that?'"

“I don’t know, maybe it never really hit people that I was a child at the time and that goes beyond a guy being inappropriate in the workplace to a peer or somebody in his age range,” she said. “I was a child.”

Ryan Trapani, a spokesperson for the CIA, declined multiple requests for comment regarding Young’s employment and Corrigan’s allegation against Bush.

“As soon as the picture was being snapped on the one-two-three he dropped his hands from my waist down to my ass and gave it a nice, ripe squeeze, which would account for the fact that in the photograph my mouth is hanging wide open,” Corrigan said. “I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, what just happened?'”

“When he left, my daughter Rozi said, ‘He grabbed me on the rear end.’ And I said, ‘What, what?'” Sari said. “And she said, ‘Yes, he grabbed me when they were taking the picture. He grabbed me on my butt.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my god, are you kidding me?’

“But, you know, it’s the president. What are you supposed to do?” she said in a Oct. 28 interview. “And you’ve got your husband’s job that could be in jeopardy. I mean, you just didn’t then. You should—you should have always spoken up, always—but we didn’t.”

Within the next few days, Corrigan told her childhood friend Chelsea Wellman about the alleged groping as well, Wellman told TIME on Oct. 27.

Christopher Yarbrough, who was married to Corrigan from 2010 until their divorce the following year, said on Oct. 27 he learned about the incident about a month after they started dating in 2005.

Tristan Voskuhl, who went to Sam Houston State University with Corrigan, said Corrigan first told her about the incident in 2006 when they were 19 years old. Bob Unseld, a family friend, said Sari first told him of the incident in 2013. “She didn’t say it just once. She told me this several times that he had done this to Rozi. It made her very mad.” Paul Weins, Unseld’s husband, also said he heard Sari’s account of the incident in 2013.

Actress Heather Lind was the first to openly accuse Bush of groping her while they posed for a photo during a promotional tour for her AMC series Turn: Washington’s Spies in 2013.

On Oct. 25, New York-based actress Jordana Grolnick told Deadspin Bush groped her in August 2016 at a Maine theater where she was performing. She said that Bush came backstage with Barbara during the intermission of the play and grabbed her buttocks.

On Oct. 26, best-selling author Christina Baker Kline wrote in Slate that Bush groped her during an April 2014 photo op at a Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy fundraiser in Houston.

Amanda Staples, a former Maine Senate candidate said in a private Instagram post on Oct. 26 that Bush groped her in 2006, the Portland Press Herald reported.

Liz Allen, a retired Erie Times-News journalist, said in an Oct. 26 Facebook post that Bush groped her.

She said that recently, she was listening to an episode of a podcast hosted by Ben Shapiro called “Is Everything Sexual Assault Now?” Allegations against Bush were discussed on the show.

“When I heard that was the reason, like, ‘Oh, he’s just an old man and he doesn’t know any better and he’s just being harmless and playful and it’s just where his arm falls… I just burst into uncontrollable sobbing,” Corrigan said. “I just couldn’t sit with that. I can’t. I cannot sit with that. I can’t sleep anymore, because that’s not true, and it’s not an excuse.”

“I’m just sad that we’ve come to this,” Laura Bush told the network. “That was something that was very, very innocent that he’s been accused of. But I know he would feel terrible.”

Corrigan said she doesn’t see it that way.

“It completely floored me. I was actually there to be taken seriously, and I wasn’t,” she said. “I thought, he’s a career politician, almost 80 years old or something like that, if anybody’s going to take me a little bit seriously or at least try to pretend he’s interested in what I have to say, it would be this guy. And he didn’t. All he did was grab my butt.”

Inside your Intel PC, you have an OS running in addition to your main OS, MINIX & it’s worrysome

You might not know it, but inside your Intel system, you have an operating system running in addition to your main OS, MINIX. And it’s raising eyebrows and concerns.

Take a look at your desktop computer. What operating system is it currently running?

Now take a look in your data center — at all of your servers. What operating system are they running?

Linux? Microsoft Windows? Mac OS X? You could be running any of those three — or one of countless others.

[ Check out our review of 5 top Linux server distros for enterprises. ]

But here’s the crazy part: That’s not the only operating system you’re running.

If you have a modern Intel CPU (released in the last few years) with Intel’s Management Engine built in, you’ve got another complete operating system running that you might not have had any clue was in there: MINIX.

That’s right. MINIX. The Unix-like OS originally developed by Andrew Tanenbaum as an educational tool — to demonstrate operating system programming — is built into every new Intel CPU.

MINIX is running on “Ring -3” (that’s “negative 3”) on its own CPU. A CPU that you, the user/owner of the machine, have no access to. The lowest “Ring” you have any real access to is “Ring 0,” which is where the kernel of your OS (the one that you actually chose to use, such as Linux) resides. Most user applications take place in “Ring 3” (without the negative).

The first thing that jumps out at me here: This means MINIX (specifically a version of MINIX 3) is in all likelihood the most popular OS shipping today on modern Intel-based computers (desktops, laptops and servers). That, right there, is absolutely crazy.

The second thing to make my head explode: You have zero access to “Ring -3” / MINIX. But MINIX has total and complete access to the entirety of your computer. All of it. It knows all and sees all, which presents a huge security risk — especially if MINIX, on that super-secret Ring -3 CPU, is running many services and isn’t updated regularly with security patches.

Google wants to remove MINIX from its internal servers

According to Google, which is actively working to remove Intel’s Management Engine (MINIX) from their internal servers (for obvious security reasons), the following features exist within Ring -3:

Full networking stack

File systems

Many drivers (including USB, networking, etc.)

A web server

That’s right. A web server.

Your CPU has a secret web server that you are not allowed to access, and, apparently, Intel does not want you to know about

The only reason I can think of is if the makers of the CPU wanted a way to serve up content via the internet without you knowing about it. Combine that with the fact that Ring -3 has 100 percent access to everything on the computer, and that should make you just a teensy bit nervous.

Russia used hundreds of fake accounts to influence Brexit & raise anti-MUslim feelings

Researchers find that accounts run from a St Petersburg troll farm tried to sow discord between Britons over the referendum

Concern about Russian influence in British politics has intensified as it emerged that more than 400 fake Twitter accounts believed to be run from St Petersburg published posts about Brexit.

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh identified 419 accounts operating from the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA) attempting to influence UK politics out of 2,752 accounts suspended by Twitter in the US.

One of the accounts run from the Kremlin-linked operation attempted to stir anti-Islamic sentiment during the Westminster Bridge terror attack in March in a bogus post claiming a Muslim woman ignored victims – a claim that was highlighted by mainstream media outlets including Mail Online and the Sun.

For days after, the tweeter was gleefully sharing press clippings. “Wow … I’m on the Daily Mail front page! Thank you British libs! You’re making me famous,” he said, referring to an article that appeared on Mail Online and which still bore the tweet at the time of writing.

Tom Sizemore fired for didling 11 yr old,covered up

A dozen cast and crewmembers tell THR that the actor was sent home after the girl told her parents about the incident.

Actor Tom Sizemore was told to leave a Utah film set in 2003 after an 11-year-old actress told her mother that he had touched her genitals, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Months later, he returned for reshoots in Malibu after her parents declined to press charges. The incident has never been revealed publicly.

When contacted, the now 26-year-old former actress, whom THR is not identifying at her request, declined to address the matter except to note that she's recently hired a lawyer to explore legal action against the actor as well as her parents. Sizemore declined to address the situation. "Our position is 'no comment,'" says his agent Stephen Rice.

THR spoke to a dozen people involved with the production of the film, a crime thriller called Born Killers (shot as Piggy Banks). They confirmed Sizemore was sent home over the alleged incident. According to these cast- and crewmembers, rumors swirled and emotions rose on set over what had allegedly transpired.

Sizemore, notorious for his long rap sheet that includes charges of drug use and battery against women, has not previously been accused of molestation. An actor with a tough-guy image then at the height of his scandal-driven infamy, when the Utah incident occurred he'd recently been convicted of physically abusing and harassing his ex-girlfriend, the former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.

Sizemore is said to have denied the young actress' claim as soon as he was confronted with it. His management firm Untitled and talent agency CAA quietly dropped him shortly afterward. He's currently repped by the boutique firm Pantheon.

​Cast- and crewmembers, inspired by the nascent movement toward industry transparency in the post-Harvey Weinstein era, explain that the incident took place near the end of production on Born Killers (not to be confused with Oliver Stone's earlier Natural Born Killers, which Sizemore also appeared in). It was during a second-unit still portrait session, to capture photos of Sizemore's character with his abandoned wife and daughter. The imagery would serve as a plot device in the $5 million film, which was released by Lionsgate in 2005. The film centers on two immoral brothers on a crime spree. (Sizemore played the dissolute father who raised them.)

​The roughly half-hour session required the young actress, who had a small role in the production, to be seated on Sizemore's lap in a holiday tableau. This is when Sizemore allegedly either rubbed his finger against the girl's vagina or inserted it inside.

During one setup, which required just the two of them, Robyn Adamson, who portrayed the wife, stood away, near the photographer. She recalls of the girl, who was wearing a flannel nightgown: "At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited. I was watching her. She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction. Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was."

Russia remains non-compliant with code, says World Anti-Doping Agency

Russia's hopes of competing at the Winter Olympic Games in February were dealt a blow as the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) said the country remained non-compliant with its code.

Last year, an independent report commissioned by Wada found evidence of state-sponsored doping in the country.

Wada told Russia earlier this month the "best solution" is to "work with them" following new intelligence.

Russia was suspended from track and field events by the International Association of Athletics Federations in November 2015 following the publication of the independent Wada report.

Sports minister Vitaly Mutko apologised for Russia's failure to catch the cheats, but stopped short of admitting the scandal had been state-sponsored.

However, an independent report commissioned by Wada and completed by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren contained more damaging allegations and suggested senior figures in Russia's sports ministry were complicit in an organised cover-up.

The report implicated the majority of Olympic sports in the cover-up and claimed Russian secret service agents were involved in swapping positive urine samples for clean ones.

Newly discovered exoplanet could be home to alien life, exoscientists find

Whether life exists beyond Planet Earth is still a mystery – but if aliens really are out there, there's a good chance they'll be found on Ross 128b. The newly discovered exoplanet seems to have all the right qualities for extraterrestrial existence.

It may seem like an out-of-this-world claim, but if there was ever a place that could support life – whether that be alien or Earthling, sometime in the future – this appears to be it. That's according to findings by astronomers at the European Southern Observatory's La Silla site in Chile, which discovered the exoplanet using the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) instrument.

Details of their remarkable discovery are explained in a paper, which is scheduled to be published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. Among those details, you'll find that Ross 128b isn't just any old exoplanet.

For starters, Ross 128b's host star, referred to as a “quiet” M dwarf by the study’s authors, has been very kind to the exoplanet. The seven-billion-year-old star's rotation has slowed through the years, meaning it doesn't subject Ross 128b to powerful stellar flares like younger, faster-spinning stars do. This increases the chances for the exoplanet to provide a hospitable environment for things (or people, or aliens, or whatever) living on its surface.

Russia posts video game screenshot as 'proof' of US helping IS

Russia's Ministry of Defence has posted what it called "irrefutable proof" of the US aiding so-called Islamic State - but one of the images was actually taken from a video game.

The ministry claimed the image showed an IS convoy leaving a Syrian town last week aided by US forces.

Instead, it came from the smartphone game AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron.

The Conflict Intelligence Team fact-checking group said the other four provided were also errors, taken from a June 2016 video which showed the Iraqi Air Force attacking IS in Iraq.

The video game image seems to be taken from a promotional video on the game's website and YouTube channel, closely cropped to omit the game controls and on-screen information.

In the corner of the image, however, a few letters of the developer's disclaimer can still be seen: "Development footage. This is a work in progress. All content subject to change."

Hours later, the ministry published an updated statement with a different set of images, which it also said proved their claims.

It repeated the claim it was "irrefutable evidence that US are actually covering Isis [IS] combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East".

EU signs a “historic” pact to integrate 23 armies to invade brexit Great Britain

Twenty-three countries have declared they will participate in a new EU defense cooperation pact, part of a broader push to advance European integration, officials said Monday.

France and Germany proposed the initiative last year as part of their efforts to breathe new life into the European project after Britain voted to leave the bloc.

Britain’s impending departure made it easier to get the project off the ground as London has traditionally been skeptical about EU military cooperation, seeing NATO as the main vehicle for common European defense efforts.

“It’s going to be quite a historic day for European defense,” EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told reporters before the meeting in Brussels at which ministers approved the plan.

All EU countries except Britain, Ireland, Denmark, Malta and Portugal said Monday they would sign up to the pact, which will be officially launched at a summit next month. By the time of the summit, diplomats expect only Britain, Denmark and Malta not to be involved.

Feminist nazi commie SJws take away Lorne Grabher's Lic plate"Grabher",say it's not PC

A Canadian man is riled up after losing the right to drive with a “GRABHER” vanity license plate. The owner, Lorne Grabher of Nova Scotia, is selling bumper stickers in support of his right to keep it.

“Grabher” is actually the guy’s last name, not a strategy to keep women out of his way on the road. His family managed to use the namesake on vehicles for 27 years before officials cracked down. In January the Transportation Department finally revoked the plate, deeming it “inappropriate.” Probably for the best — it was only a matter of time before the phrase made its way into a viral Instagram selfie.

Officials claim Grabher’s repercussions had nothing to do with President Trump’s infamous comment, but the retiree is dubious. In an affidavit written this month, Grabher suggests people have gotten too sensitive, and points out the hypocrisy of Canada’s government when there are places named “Dildo” and “Blow Me Down Provincial Park.”

We’ll see how that argument holds up in court come September 2018

UK cyber-defence chief accuses Russia of hack attacks

One of the UK's cyber-defence chiefs has accused Russia of having attacked Britain's media, telecommunications and energy sectors over the past year.

Ciaran Martin, chief executive of GCHQ's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), added that Russia was "seeking to undermine the international system".

The NCSC was established about a year ago. Last month, it revealed that it had already classed a total of 590 attacks - from a variety of perpetrators - as being "significant", and that more than 30 incidents had been judged serious enough to require a cross-government response.

Mr Martin's accusations follow Prime Minister Theresa May's own claim that Russia had "mounted a sustained campaign of cyber-espionage and disruption".

"The prime minister made the point on Monday night - international order as we know it is in danger of being eroded," he said.

"This is clearly a cause for concern and the NCSC is actively engaging with international partners, industry and civil society to tackle this threat."

GOP Senators Believe Roy Moore's 5 Accusers But Not Donald Trump's 16 accusers

Senate Republicans are increasingly lining up behind the women accusing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) of sexual misconduct, saying he shouldn’t be able to serve given the disturbing allegations against him.

“The women who have come forward are entirely credible,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) declared Tuesday. “He’s obviously not fit to be in the United States Senate.”

But ask those Republicans if they believe the women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault, and the conversation is over.

“Look, we’re talking about the situation in Alabama,” McConnell told HuffPost, when asked about Trump’s accusers. “I’d be happy to address that if there are any further questions.”

Moore’s scandal has put his party in an incredibly uncomfortable predicament: the more Republicans say the allegations by five women against Moore are proof that he doesn’t belong in the Senate, the more hypocritical they look for ignoring the 16 women who have accused Trump of sexual assault and helping him become president.

The White House position on the president’s accusers is that they are all liars. Trump denied all of the allegations again last month, calling them “fake news” and “made-up stuff.”

So why do Republicans believe Moore’s accusers but not Trump’s? HuffPost spent Tuesday asking GOP senators why the situations are different. Few could offer a convincing argument, instead opting to shrug their shoulders, pivot or abruptly walk away.

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) said Moore should “step aside” because the women accusing him of misconduct “appear to have the preponderance of the evidence.”

Asked if he believes Trump’s accusers, Roberts replied, “I don’t know them.” He started to leave but turned back and said, referring to Moore’s accusers, “I don’t know the others, either.”

Perhaps realizing his answers made no sense, Roberts turned back again and said with a smile, “Or [Bill] Clinton.”

Oxford teacher loses jobs thanks to "misgendering pupil" and insane narcicisstic liberal slander

A teacher is facing disciplinary action at his school after he referred to a transgender pupil as a girl, although the student identifies as a boy.

Joshua Sutcliffe, a Christian pastor from Oxford, admitted he said "Well done girls" when addressing a group including the student.

He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth

The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment.

Mr Sutcliffe, who teaches children aged between 11 and 18, said the incident took place on 2 November.

He said a week-long investigation found he had "misgendered" the pupil.

Homo Takeover: With Election of Trans, Bi Women, Palm Springs City Council is Now Entirely 'Queer'

With Election of Trans, Bi Women, Palm Springs City Council Now Entirely Queer

The California desert city is run by LGBT people.

The Palm Springs, Calif., City Council now has transgender and bisexual members – and is entirely LGBT or queer.

Lisa Middleton made history as the first openly trans candidate elected to a nonjudicial office in California (Victoria Kolakowski was elected an Alameda County Superior Court judge in 2010).She and Christy Holstege, a bi woman, won the two open seats on the City Council in a field of six candidates in Tuesday’s election. Their election means that the desert city’s council is 100 percent LGBT or queer, according to Equality California, with representation from across the spectrum of those identities.

Middleton received about 31 percent of the vote and Holstege 30 percent, The Desert Sun reports. Palm Springs elects council members on a citywide, nonpartisan basis. “It’s all because of all of you that we are here tonight, celebrating a victory, a historic victory for our city and for our state,” Middleton told supportersTuesday night, according to the Sun.

Holstege, the first millennial elected to the council, won in her first bid for office. “Now is when we can say we didn’t know what we were doing,” she joked, the Sunreports. “We figured it out just with hard work.”

Middleton, retired from the California State Compensation Insurance Fund, is a member of the Palm Springs Planning Commission and chairwoman of the Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs, and a member of the boards of directors of the Desert Horticulture Society and the Desert LGBTQ Center. In 2014 she was the center’s interim executive director. On the planning commission she has advocated for downtown renewal, increased use of solar energy, and cooperation between developers and neighborhoods. She is married to longtime partner Cheryl. Holstege is an attorney who focuses on assisting underserved communities in the area, including people with disabilities, LGBTQ people, homeless individuals, injured workers, personal injury victims, and victims of discrimination and violence. Both women were endorsed by Equality California and Victory Fund.

Both organizations hailed the groundbreaking nature of Middleton’s win. “In light of the repeated attacks on transgender people from the federal government, tonight’s wins by Lisa Middleton in Palm Springs and other transgender candidates in Minneapolis and Virginia are a beacon of hope that voters have embraced values of equality and inclusion,” said a statement issued by Rick Zbur, executive director of Equality California. “By becoming the first out transgender person to be elected to a nonjudicial office in California, Lisa is paving the way for others to follow in her footsteps in California and across the nation. Her first place finish out of a field of 6 candidates demonstrates that a glass ceiling for transgender people who want to serve in elected office was not only broken, but was shattered in Palm Springs. With the election of Lisa and Christy Holstege, the city of Palm Springs will now be represented by a city council that is 100 percent LGBTQ.”

“Lisa Middleton shattered a lavender ceiling in California this election day – breaking down barriers to become California’s first trans nonjudicial elected official,” said Aisha C. Moodie-Mills, president and CEO of Victory Fund, in a press release. “Trans people remain severely underrepresented in government nationwide, so Lisa’s victory is important not just for Palm Springs or California, but for the entire country. Now more than ever, we need trans voices in the halls of power because they humanize our lives, change the debate and move forward more inclusive legislation. Lisa’s historic election victory will be remembered as an important milestone in the movement for LGBTQ equality, and will undoubtedly inspire other trans people to run for office and win.”

Gay Pedo perv says Charlie Sheen ass raped Cory Haim,But mom say it was gay pedo perv who did it

Recently actor Dominick Brascia spoke out and claimed that Charlie Sheen sexually assaulted the late Corey Haim when they were teenagers. Now Corey’s mom has spoken out on his behalf and says that Brascia was actually the one who abused her son.’

Corey’s mom Judy made an appearance on the Dr. Oz Show on Friday where she explained.

“This guy Dominick is the guy that abused my son. My son said so.”

Judy says that Corey has been naming Brascia is the assaulter since 2010 when he spoke out about the sexual abuse on the reality show The Two Coreys. Judy claims to have actually seen some of this herself. Corey reportedly used to spend time on Dominick’s apartment in Studio City and one day she got a call that something was wrong. When she went over she found Dominick sitting on top of her son.

“Dominick was sitting on my son, pinning him to the floor, not allowing him to move. I took a pool cue — and he will remember that — and I went so close to his head and I said: ‘You better get off of him or I’m bashing your head in.’ And he got off of him and we left.”

1.9 billion stolen google passwords & usernames on black market, & 25% of them still work

There are 1.9 billion stolen passwords and usernames available on the black market, and up to 25% of them will still work on a Google account

Using internal Google data, researchers found between 7% and 25% of these stolen passwords would work on a Google search or Gmail account.

Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail users make up 50% of the victims of stolen passwords in the study — even though the passwords were stolen from different services such as MySpace or LinkedIn.

Don't sign into any lame ass site,if they ask for your google,facebook,ms,etc account, shite 4 brains

There are hundreds of millions of usernames and passwords traded on black markets that can be used to access Google accounts, write Google and Berkeley researchers in a major new paper.

The study, published over the weekend, uses Google's own, carefully controlled internal "proprietary data" as a case-study to see whether the hacked passwords and other accounts traded on hacker forums and the dark web actually work on real accounts.

It turns out, the researchers write, that as many as 25% of exposed passwords from data breaches traded on black market forums could be used to take control of a Google account.

Basically, what this means, is because lots of people used the same password for their, say, MySpace account and their Google account, then when MySpace's database was breached, hackers could simply try all the breached passwords on Google, hoping that some would work.

This problem with password reuse has resulted in some of the most high-profile "hacks" in recent years.

For example, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg used the same password — "dadada" — for his Twitter and Pinterest accounts, which were briefly taken over in 2016 by hackers calling themselves the OurMine team.

OurMine, reportedly using stolen passwords, also targeted Google CEO Sundar Pichai, actor Channing Tatum, and Amazon CTO Werner Vogel

Trump Blames Russia For North Korea Impasse

…and he invents his own form of grammar too.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that Russia was hurting U.S. efforts to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons while China had been helpful.

In an interview with Fox Business Network, Trump said it would be easier to resolve the North Korea nuclear issue if the United States had a better relationship with Russia.

“China is helping us and maybe Russia’s going through the other way and hurting what we’re getting,” Trump said of the North Korea situation.

A series of weapons tests by North Korea and a string of increasingly bellicose exchanges between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have ratcheted up tensions.

Trump has pressed China to help rein in North Korea’s nuclear program. China, North Korea’s sole major ally, accounts for more than 90 percent of trade with the isolated country.

Trump said in a tweet that he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday and the conversation included North Korea.

U.S.-Russia relations have been strained over allegations Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Moscow’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and its backing of the Syrian government.

“I think we could have a good relationship” with Russia, Trump said. “I think that North Korean situation would be easier settled.”

Trump said during last year’s campaign he hoped to improve relations with Moscow.

Communist Russia attacks "Anglo-American" attacks on ISIS in Raqqa

Socialist agitprop agency BBC reports:

Russia has accused the US-led coalition of bombing the Syrian city of Raqqa "off the face of the earth" during the fight against so-called Islamic State.

Pictures suggest much of Raqqa is in ruins, and Moscow compared it to the Allied destruction of the German city of Dresden in World War Two.

"Raqqa has inherited the fate of Dresden in 1945, wiped off the face of the earth by Anglo-American bombardments," Maj Gen Igor Konashenkov said.

He said the West now appeared to be hurrying to send financial aid to Raqqa as a way of covering up evidence of its crimes.

Russian AntiFa Commie Hackers Cast Wide Net Targeting Thousands in Service to the Kremlin

WASHINGTON (AP) — The hackers who upended the U.S. presidential election had ambitions well beyond Hillary Clinton’s campaign, targeting the emails of Ukrainian officers, Russian opposition figures, U.S. defense contractors and thousands of others of interest to the Kremlin, according to a previously unpublished digital hit list obtained by The Associated Press.

The list provides the most detailed forensic evidence yet of the close alignment between the hackers and the Russian government, exposing an operation that stretched back years and tried to break into the inboxes of 4,700 Gmail users across the globe — from the pope’s representative in Kiev to the punk band Pussy Riot in Moscow.

“It’s a wish list of who you’d want to target to further Russian interests,” said Keir Giles, director of the Conflict Studies Research Center in Cambridge, England. He said the data was “a master list of individuals whom Russia would like to spy on, embarrass, discredit or silence.”

Secureworks stumbled upon the data after a hacking group known as Fancy Bear accidentally exposed part of its phishing operation to the internet. The list revealed a direct line between the hackers and the leaks that rocked the presidential contest in its final stages, most notably the private emails of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

The issue of who hacked the Democrats is back in the national spotlight following the revelation Monday that a Donald Trump campaign official, George Papadopoulos, was briefed early last year that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton, including “thousands of emails.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the notion that Russia interfered “unfounded.” But the list examined by AP provides powerful evidence that the Kremlin did just that.

“This is the Kremlin and the general staff,” said Andras Racz, a specialist in Russian security policy at Pazmany Peter Catholic University in Hungary, as he examined the data. “I have no doubts.”

In the United States, which was Russia’s Cold War rival, Fancy Bear tried to pry open at least 573 inboxes belonging to those in the top echelons of the country’s diplomatic and security services: then-Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, then-NATO Supreme Commander, U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove, and one of his predecessors, U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark.

The list skewed toward workers for defense contractors such as Boeing, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin or senior intelligence figures, prominent Russia watchers and — especially — Democrats. More than 130 party workers, campaign staffers and supporters of the party were targeted, including Podesta and other members of Clinton’s inner circle.

Podesta, Powell, Breedlove and more than a dozen Democratic targets besides Podesta would soon find their private correspondence dumped to the web. The AP has determined that all had been targeted by Fancy Bear, most of them three to seven months before the leaks.

In Ukraine, which is fighting a grinding war against Russia-backed separatists, Fancy Bear attempted to break into at least 545 accounts, including those of President Petro Poroshenko and his son Alexei.

The list includes Serhiy Leshchenko, an opposition parliamentarian who helped uncover the off-the-books payments allegedly made to Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort — whose indictment was unsealed Monday in Washington.

In Russia, Fancy Bear focused on government opponents and dozens of journalists. Among the targets were oil tycoon-turned-Kremlin foe Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who spent a decade in prison and now lives in exile, and Pussy Riot’s Maria Alekhina. Along with them were 100 more civil society figures, including anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny and his lieutenants.

“It’s simply hard to see how any other country would be particularly interested in their activities,” said Michael Kofman, an expert on Russian military affairs at the Woodrow Wilson International Center in Washington. He was also on the list.

“If you’re not Russia,” he said, “hacking these people is a colossal waste of time.”

In the wake of the 2016 election, U.S. intelligence agencies publicly endorsed the consensus view, saying what American spooks had long alleged privately: Fancy Bear is a creature of the Kremlin.

“We have no doubts about who is behind these attacks,” said Artem Torchinskiy, a project coordinator with Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Fund who was targeted three times in 2015. “I am sure these are hackers controlled by Russian secret services.”

Israel scores major triumph by using Trump to sabotage the Iran nuclear pact

Trump is surrounded by a coterie of ardently pro-Israel advisors and cronies aligned to that nation’s far right wing. So far to the right, in fact, that their Israeli opponents often call them ‘fascists.’ Trump, with this Mussolini complex, fits right into this mind-set.

In addition, Trump’s virulent hatred of Islam and his deep support from America’s evangelicals fuels his antipathy to Iran. The Israeli lobby and so-called Christian Zionists that make up his electoral base are beating the war drums against Iran.

If the Iran nuclear deal is abrogated, America will have shot itself in the foot and shown the world it has fallen under the control of special interests for whom America’s national interests do not come first. Europe, already disgusted by the Trump carnival in Washington and its religious supporters, will pull further away from the US and closer to Russia and China. Who would trust America’s word after deal-break Trump?

Europe has lately signed billions in new trade accords with Iran, most notably and $18 billion deal with Airbus for the sale of commercial aircraft. Boeing wants to sell 80 aircraft to Iran worth $16 billion. Thus Trump’s jihad against Iran will likely deny high-paid jobs to tens of thousands of American workers. This from the president who was going to create jobs, jobs, jobs.

Inside a pro-Russia propaganda machine in Ukraine

A Russian "troll factory" in St Petersburg is working with the self-styled "Donetsk People's Republic" in eastern Ukraine to produce extreme propaganda videos that aim to discredit pro-Ukrainian elements and stir up the conflict in the region, BBC Russian has learned.

A series of fake news videos produced by a group called the Russian Liberation Movement have emerged on YouTube dating from 23 August.

The videos show extremist groups with hidden faces, distorted voices and posing with weapons.

The fighters identify themselves with a confusing array of labels. At times they describe themselves as pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine, as pro-Ukrainian rebels in Russia and even as fighters from so-called Islamic State - even though they have also made videos potentially deeply offensive to Muslims.

In one of these videos, six armed men are draped in a neo-Nazi flag.

They appear to be extreme Russian anti-government nationalists, helping Ukrainians to fight what they describe as "Putin's bloody regime" in Eastern Ukraine and claim they are "turning their gaze towards the Fatherland".

In another video, the Russian Liberation Movement claims responsibility for a suspected arson attack in the Russian city of Rostov, saying it was their "first successful attempt at a terrorist act on Russian soil". The suspected arson attack did indeed happen - one person was killed and more than 100 houses were damaged - but there's no indication that it was linked to political groups or terrorism.

In later videos, the militants explain how to seize a building and use hand grenades. They also hoist a pig's head on to a Koran and send "greetings" to Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov.

But BBC Russian has discovered a number of similarities between characters and locations in the videos and people and backgrounds in other online films which aim to recruit men to defend the "Donetsk People's Republic" - indicating that the videos are fakes produced by anti-Ukraine fighters operating in the region.

The Russian Liberation Movement videos were distributed through seven fake accounts on the Russian social network VK. The accounts used false names and photographs of random people as profile pictures.

The accounts were opened just a few days before the material appeared and were largely reposting entertainment content in an effort to look "real".

BBC Russian also found that a social media account sharing the material was computer generated and belonged to a botnet - a large controlled network of social media accounts.

(CNN)It's only been a few weeks since the sexual assault allegations against media mogul Harvey Weinstein exploded into public view. Since then there have been new allegations made against other powerful men in various industries seemingly almost every day.

From companies taking a second look at their sexual harassment policies to the tide of #MeToo stories flooding social media, the controversy has sparked the biggest national conversation on sexual harassment since the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas battle in the early '90s. Prominent actors and actresses have come forward with stories that put fellow Hollywood A-listers sharply in the spotlight.

This list of men who've been accused of sexual harassment focuses just on allegations on which CNN has reported. There are accusations against other powerful men out there. As the days and weeks go on, this list will undoubtedly keep growing. This list also doesn't include powerful men like Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes or Donald Trump; allegations against them came before Weinstein.

New Hampshire Lawmaker Equates Homeschooling To "Child Abuse" - Nanny State To Be Pushed On Parents

In 2012, the State of New Hampshire passed a measure that eased the state’s intervention into the operations of homeschooling families by reducing the number of filings parents would have to submit in order to get state approval for their efforts to educate their children. This move, according to Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), reduced the amount of notices homeschooling parents would have to submit from 3 to just 1 and has produced no negative problems since becoming law.

Now, about five years after the 2012 measure was passed, state lawmakers are eyeing up a plan to roll back the efforts to ease state intervention by requiring third-party oversight of homeschooling operations.

The attack on the 2012 measure was spearheaded by one lawmaker’s demonization of homeschooling as “child abuse” and claims that homeschool is failing some children.

Venezuela just defaulted, moving deeper into crisis

The South American country defaulted on its debt, according to a statement issued Monday night by S&P Global Ratings. The agency said the 30-day grace period had expired for a payment that was due in October.

A debt default risks setting off a dangerous series of events that could exacerbate Venezuela's food and medical shortages.

If enough holders of a particular bond demand full and immediate repayment, it can prompt investors across all Venezuelan bonds to demand the same thing. Since Venezuela doesn't have the money to pay all its bondholders right now, investors would then be entitled to seize the country's assets – primarily barrels of oil – outside its borders.

Related: Trump administration bars U.S. banks from some Venezuelan debt

Venezuela has no other meaningful income other than the oil it sells abroad. The government, meanwhile, has failed for years to ship in enough food and medicine for its citizens. As a result, Venezuelans are waiting hours in line to buy food and dying in hospitals that lack basic resources.

Cleaner fined $50 for being ill by shitty cleaning app ai

When Polly Mackenzie heard her cleaner was ill and unable to work her normal day, she was hoping to reschedule through the Handy site that supplied her.

But that was not how the system worked. When her cleaner was unable to attend on her regular day, Handy offered to send a replacement.

But the app blocked the cleaner from working for her again.

The story took a further turn the next day: the cleaner was reinstated - but was also docked £25.

Ms Mackenzie herself, from south London, was sent what she described to the BBC as "a grovelling email - as if they'd killed my firstborn", then found her account had been credited with £5 to compensate for the inconvenience.

She said that meant Handy had "profited £20 from her illness, about twice as much as they'd make if she turned up".

New York-based Handy told the BBC the cleaner was automatically blocked from its system as she had appeared as a "no show".

Handy said at no point was the cleaner banned and that it was now "reviewing its policy regarding waiving fees for emergencies such as this".

Commie Coward Putin Fearfully Jails Alexei Navalny For Third Time This Year

Free speech enemy and democracy hating Communist KGB agent, Vladimir Putin sentenced Alexei Navalny to 20 days in jail Monday for organizing an (((unauthorized))) rally to support his intent to run for President in 2018. It will be Navalny's third jail stent this year.

Police arrested him Friday as he traveled to Nizhny Novgorod, where he had called on his supporters to gather. Navalny said he didn't break any laws and argued he's being targeted for opposing Putin's government.

In June, a judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail for illegally staging a rally in Moscow. He and more than 800 people were arrested in the Russia Day event. Navalny's sentence was later reduced to 25 days.

On Monday, Navalny said he considered his new sentence a "birthday president for Putin," who turns 65 on Saturday.

Russia's Central Election Commission in June barred Navalny from running for president in 2018 because of a prior criminal conviction.

Navalny has also been attack multiple times by a green caustic substance thrown into his face and eyes by an unknown gopnik.

Dan Brown:AIs will be our new Gods and religion

Technological advancement and the development of AI will transform the concept of the divine, according to the Da Vinci Code author.

Speaking at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Mr Brown he admitted his prediction may not be welcomed by clerics, but called for greater harmony between the world's great religions and those who profess no faith.

He said: "Christianity, Judaism and Islam all share a gospel, loosely, and it's important that we all realise that.

"Our religions are much more similar than they are different.

We will start to find our spiritual experiences through our interconnections with each other.

"Our need for that exterior god, that sits up there and judges us … will diminish and eventually disappear."

He forecast the emergence of "some form of global consciousness that we perceive and that becomes our divine".

Brown made the provocative remark during a talk to promote his latest novel ‘Origin’, the fifth in a series following Harvard professor Robert Langdon, the protagonist of ‘The Da Vinci Code’, which questioned the history of Christianity.

‘Origin’ was inspired by the question "Will God survive science?", said Brown, adding this had never happened in the history of humanity.

Spain Is Flirting With Another Civil War

>MADRID — For five years, the national government of Spain and the region of Catalonia have been playing chicken over the latter’s bid for independence. And it increasingly seems that neither side intends on stopping before the moment of impact.

On Oct. 1, the Catalan government plans to put out ballot boxes for a vote on independence it claims will be definitive. The referendum law passed by Catalonia’s parliament says a “yes” vote will trigger a declaration of independence “within two days” — completely ignoring the fact that the legal basis for the ballot has been suspended by Spain’s constitutional court. Fittingly, the Catalan government’s TV ad for the referendum shows a train approaching a fork in the tracks.

Egyptian authorities are luring gay men to hotel rooms using dating app Grindr and then arresting them, as an obsession with "penetration" and a violent crackdown on sexual minorities continues.

Dozens of police reports unearthed by Dalia Abdel-Hameed, a gender rights researcher with the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, outline a "cultivation" technique where potential targets are seduced through dating apps to come to places such as hotel rooms, and then immediately arrested.

"It's related to the fact that men are using apps more than women and an obsession of who is being penetrated," Ms Abdel-Hameed said.

"There is this penetration mania in Egypt due to religious reasons, mostly."

'A bloodbath, basically': Crab poaching a problem in B.C.'s Lower Mainland: biologist

http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/british-columbia/a-bloodbath-basically-crab-poaching-a-problem-in-b-c-s-lower-mainland-biologist-1.4290998

Earlier this month, Andrew Newman was dismayed to witness two people rip the claws off undersized crabs in White Rock, B.C. and toss them back into the ocean.

Newman, the owner of White Rock Sea Tours and Whale Watching, described the scene as an act of "greed and cruelty" and called authorities.

He later posted a video of the RCMP bust that resulted in fines for two people accused of removing the meaty claws from undersized and female crabs.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans says Hsin Chan and Chun Li were charged and ticketed under the federal Fisheries Act for fishing without a licence and harvesting undersized Dungeness crab on Sept. 7. 

Fisheries officials did not have statistics on poaching in B.C., but a biologist at Vancouver Island University said crab poaching is a problem in the Lower Mainland.

Stefanie Duff, chair of the fisheries and aquaculture program at the University of Vancouver Island, said she has noticed a number crabs without their claws, especially in intertidal areas where recreational fishermen often pitch their traps.

Poachers rip the claws off crabs because they contain the most succulent — and therefore most valuable — part of the crab. Poachers then toss the rest of the body back in the water.

"It's a bloodbath, basically," Duff  said, adding that removing a crab's claws is akin to cutting off a human's hands; it reduces the animal's ability to eat, defend itself, move effectively and almost ensures a slow death.

A slow death

It's illegal in B.C. to retain any part of a crab without the body. It is also illegal to keep female crabs which can produce between 20,000 and 80,000 offspring in a lifetime, said Duff.

Because crabs don't have blood vessels the way mammals do, they are likely to bleed to death if an appendage is torn off carelessly, Duff said.

Legislation Introduced to Reinstate the Death Penalty in Maryland by Using HEROIN to Kill Criminals!

October 23, 2017 2:16 PM

Senator Robert G. Cassilly, R-Md., said Monday the state should reinstate the death penalty and use a lethal injection comprised of heroin and fentanyl to execute prisoners who have committed certain violent crimes.

The Harford County conservative said lethal injection should be used when punishing severe crimes, including murder that occurs during a sexual assault, murder during a hate crime, murder of at least two people in one incident, serial murders, and the murder of a law enforcement officer.

The statement was first reported by WJZand comes days after three granite business employees were fatally shot by a former coworker in Cassilly's state. Cassilly is urging his colleagues to reinstate the death penalty in light of the incident.

Indonesian museum offers happy snaps in front of Auschwitz display, kikes kvetch and get it removed

An Indonesian museum, which until recently, had allowed visitors to snap selfies with a full-sized waxwork of Adolf Hitler against the backdrop of the Auschwitz death camp gates, has taken down the figure following a storm of criticism.

The De Mata De Arca visual effects museum has around 100 waxworks of celebrities, politicians and fictional characters, according to its website. Until Saturday, the figure of Hitler could be found standing between Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Indonesian leader Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo.

The Nazi Germany leader was placed against a wall-sized banner depicting the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp with the notorious “Arbeit macht frei” (Work sets you free) sign. The wax Hitler proved popular with locals, who shared their selfies on social media platforms. The snapshots show some of the visitors even engaged in the Nazi salute.

Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Azov Battalion is reportedly gaining traction in Europe, especially Germany. Over 2,500 foreign mercenaries are currently fighting on their side in E. Ukraine – three times more than in 2014, Spiegel reports, citing security authorities.

Ultra-nationalist Azov Battalion members distribute flyers to recruit new members at neo-Nazi events across Europe, German magazine Spiegel claims. Their promotional campaign appears to be effective, as “more and more mercenaries” are joining in to “save Europe from extinction.”

Pedophilia Legalized in France as High Court Rules That 11 y/o Girls Can Consent to Sex w/ Adults

A SHOCKING court decision that declared an 11-year-old girl consented to sex with a man, 28, has sparked outrage in France.

Prosecutors deemed the child had engaged in a consensual “ sexual relationship” with the man, leading to immediate backlash from children’s rights groups.

The case centred on allegations the man lured the girl from a park in the northern Paris suburb of Montmagny to his nearby home.

The Local news outlet reported the man allegedly raped her. The girl’s family said she was “paralysed” by fear and “unable to defend herself”.

But in a decision that’s prompted anger, prosecutors decided “there was no violence, no constraint, no threat, and no surprise” on the part of the man to justify the charge of rape.

“Essentially they judged that she had consented to the sexual encounter because she was not physically forced into the act,” The Local reported.

Rights group Le Voix de l’Enfant said in a statement: “The question of consent or its absence should never even be asked when it comes to rape victims who are minors”.

Andy Dick accused of sexual assault, admits he 'licked & touched' co-workers

in the new wave of responses to the systematic pattern of sexual abuse now being upturned in Hollywood, thanks in part to exposés on the behaviors of Harvey Weinstein, James Toback, Kevin Spacey and others.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dick has been fired from his small role in the still in-production indie film "Raising Buchanan," due to his on-set behavior. The Reporter writes, "two sources detailed Dick’s inappropriate behavior, which included groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production."

Dick, for his part, confirmed his termination to the Reporter and offered a perhaps less-than-wise response to the allegations. "My middle name is ‘misconduct,'" he said. "They know what they signed up for."

White Man Drills for Oil, She Dumps Acid on His Face - He Had to Kill Himself for His Race Betrayal

A scorned woman murdered her ex-boyfriend by pouring sulphuric acid over him and laughed: “if I can't have you no-one can”, a court heard on Wednesday.

Jealous Berlinah Wallace, 48, threw the corrosive substance in the face of Mark van Dongen that covered most of his body.

He suffered 25 percent burns and suffered such serious injuries he was left paralysed - only able to move his tongue, Mark, 29, lost a leg, his left eye, and most of the sight in his right eye following the sulphuric acid attack, Bristol Crown Court heard.

Civil engineer Mark was left wanting to end his life and eventually successfully applied for euthanasia and died 15 months after the attack.

Wallace carried out the attack out of jealousy after the couple split up and Mark began seeing another woman, the court was told.

In the weeks before the attack Wallace carried out internet searches including 'can I die from drinking sulphuric acid?' and searched for graphic images of acid attack victims.

Fashion student Wallace denies murder and applying a corrosive fluid after pouring acid over Mark van Dongen at 3am on 23 September 2015. Adam Vaitlingam QC, prosecuting, said: “The defendant had bought a bottle of sulphuric acid, which she bought online from Amazon.

“At around 3am, as Mark was sleeping in bed, she poured the acid into a glass.

“She then went into the bedroom, and woke him up. She laughed and said 'if I can't have you no one will' and she threw the glass of sulphuric acid into his face.

“It covered his face and parts of his upper body and dripped onto his lower body as he moved.

“Covered in burning acid, Mark ran out into the street in his boxer shorts, screaming for help.”

The court heard couple had a five-year-relationship and lived together but it hit the rocks when Mark began seeing another woman in August 2015.

Shortly before his death, Mark, a Dutch national, told colleagues that Wallace had been violent towards him, and “seemed genuinely scared.”

The couple appeared to rekindle their romance, exchanging loving messages promising to try to make the relationship work again on 22 September, the day before the attack.

Mark sent her a message saying: “I love you, I always have. I'm truly sorry for what I've done, we need to work on our relationship.

“You and me are meant to be. I've always known that. I will treat you as you deserve to be treated. You are my princess.”

Wallace replied: “It means a lot hearing these words. You are the love of my life. God does not make a mistake in this. I love you with all my heart.”

The couple planned to cook dinner together when Mark returned to work, but that evening he went out to see his new girlfriend Violet Farquharson, the court heard.

Liberal Female Spic Professor Claims Math, Algebra, And Geometry Promote "White Privilege"

A University of Illinois math professor believes that algebra and geometry perpetuate “white privilege” because Greek terms give Caucasians unearned credit for the subject.

>But that isn’t the professor’s only complaint. She also believes that evaluations for math proficiency perpetuates discrimination against minority students, if they do worse than their white counterparts.

Gutierrez argues that subjects like algebra and geometry, which relate to arithmetic, also perpetuate racism and white privilege. She worries that “curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans.”

Gutierrez claims that the importance of math skills in the real world also places what she calls an “unearned privilege” for those who are good at it. Because most math teachers in the United States are white, white people stand to benefit from their grasp of the subject disproportionate to members of other races.

New Study: Staring at women's breasts most tolerated in Germany

A survey, attempting to gauge what people from seven European countries consider to be acts of sexual harassment in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, has yielded some interesting results.

YouGov asked 8,490 men and women from Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Norway and Sweden where they consider the boundaries of what constitutes sexual harassment begin, posing a number of questions to respondents.

These varied from whether people considered telling a woman a sexual joke to constitute harassment, to looking at her breasts, or asking her out on a date. Some answers were pretty standard across the board, whereas others greatly differed, German outlet Die Welt reports.

People from all seven countries agreed, perhaps unsurprisingly, that taking pictures up womens’ skirts was an act of sexual harassment, as was grabbing their behind or exposing themselves to women.

However, one interesting aspect of the study related to staring at women's breasts. According to the survey, a relatively small proportion of German women, 36 percent, considered ogling their breasts to be an act of sexual harassment, the number was even lower for men, with 22 percent of Männer thinking it was out of line.

Correspondingly, 50 percent of stereotypically prudish Brits thought it was sexual harassment, roughly the same number of their French counterparts agreed.

Charlie Sheen anal raped Corey Haim sez Cory Feldman

What are the Corey Haim rape allegations?

According to the National Enquirer, Charlie Sheen has been accused of raping the late License to Drive actor when he was only 13 years old. It's said the assault took place on the set of the '80s movie Lucas.

This shocking revelation comes thanks to one of Haim's longtime friends, actor Dominick Brascia. Apparently, Corey told Dominick and others that the Two and a Half Men alum sodomized the child star while the twosome were filming the 1986 flick. Sheen was 19 at the time of the alleged incident.

How awful. Haim's best friend, Corey Feldman, even alluded to the unsavory Sheen encounter as he wrote in Coreyography: A Memoir:

"At some point during the filming [of Lucas, Haim] explained an adult male convinced him it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was 'what all guys do.' … So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers during a lunch break for the cast and crew, and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomized."

"

Intense stuff. To make matters worse, Haim supposedly had another sexual experience with Charlie in his mid-to-late 20s, as Brascia continued:

"Haim told me he had sex with Sheen again. He claimed he didn't like it and was finally over Sheen. He said Charlie was a loser.

An anonymous Sheen confidant claims Martin Sheen's son confirmed his misconduct with The Lost Boys performer, but insisted that the encounter was "consensual." Umm, it can't be consensual if the youngest partner is barely a teenager.

Other sources supported the rape allegation, but have kept their identities private out of fear of revenge. One insider noted:

"Corey was so confused by the sexual encounter he believed, like so many victims, he was 'in love' with his abuser."

Also, Haim wasn't Sheen's only victim on the Lucas set as Charlie has been accused of coming on to several of the extras, who were minors at the time. Many tipsters indicated that the A-lister invited young extras to perform oral sex on him. Ugh

New Internet Censorship bill

>Why SESTA Is Such A Bad Bill

>This is the core problem: this bill targets the tools rather than the law breakers.

>Punching a hole in CDA 230 will be abused:

>This is one that seems to confuse people who don't spend much time looking at intermediary liability protections, how they work and how they'll be abused. It's completely normal for people in that situation to not recognize how widely intermediary liability is used to stifle perfectly legitimate speech and activity. However, we know damn well from looking at the DMCA, in particular, that when you set up a process by which there might be liability on a platform, it's regularly abused by people angry about content online to demand censorship. Indeed, we've seen people regularly admit that if they see content they dislike, even if there's no legitimate copyright claim, they'll "DMCA it" to get it taken down.

>Here, the potential problems are much, much worse. Because at least within the DMCA context, you have relatively limited damages (compared to SESTA at least – the monetary damages in the DMCA can add up quickly, but at least its only monetary and it's limited to a ceiling of $150,000 per work infringed). With SESTA, criminal penalties are much more stringent (obviously) which will create massive incentives for platforms to cave immediately, rather than face the risk of criminal prosecution. Similarly, the civil penalties show no upper bound under the law – meaning the potential monetary penalty may be significantly higher.

>The chilling effects of criminal charges:

>Combine all of this and you create massive chilling effects for any online platforms – big or small. I already explained earlier why the new incentives will not be to help law enforcement or to moderate content at all, for fear of creating "knowledge" but it's even worse than that. >Because, for many platforms, the massive potential liability from SESTA will mean they don't create any kind of platform at all. A comment feature on a website would become a huge liability. Any service that might conceivably be used by anyone to "facilitate" sex trafficking creates the potential for serious criminal and civil liability, which should be of great concern. It would likely lead to many platforms not being created at all, just because of the potential liability. For ones that already exist, some may shutter, and others may greatly curtail what the platform allows.

>State Attorneys General have a terrible track record on these issues:

>In response to the previous point, some may point out (correctly!) that the existing federal law already exempts federal criminal charges – meaning that the DOJ can go after platforms if it finds that they're actively participating in sex trafficking. But, for as much as we rag on the DOJ, they tend not to be in the business of going after platforms just for the headlines. State AGs, on the other hand, have a fairly long history of doing exactly that – including directly at the behest of companies looking to strangle competitors.

Sadistic Aussie Dyke couple skin poor sperg boy alive for fun

Jemma Lilley, part of a lesbian thrill-killing tag team, was obsessed with murder since she was a child.

Sicko Lilley ran a torture blog.

An Australian lesbian duo who lived in a sick fantasy world driven by torture, sex and suffering were found guilty of murder Friday.

The pair may have gotten away with murder but neither could shut up about it, putting their sinister adventure to paper.

Lenon held the boy down while Lilley skinned him alive.

Lilley wrote in her journal: “I feel that I can’t rest until the blood of a fresh, screaming, bleeding victim is gushing out and pooling on the floor.”

Lenon wrote: “The first time it will be very controlled … brutal and SOS will be totally entranced by it. (It’s) definitely time. I am ready.”

Trudi Lenon, 43, and Jemma Lilley, 26, were convicted in the slaying of 18-year-old Aaron Pajich, who had Aspergers and lived in a childlike fantasy world.

Court heard that Pajich was trusting and kind. His killers were not.

Lilley — the dominant partner — had obsessed on murder for much of her life. Her ambition was to be a serial killer, the Perth court was told.

Number of NHS patients waiting over six months for surgery up 40%

Royal College of Surgeons says 151,710 patients in England were waiting more than six months for non-urgent operations

The number of patients waiting more than six months for surgery in England was 40% higher in September than the same month last year, according to analysis by the Royal College of Surgeons. The 151,710 people waiting more than six months for hip or knee replacements, cataract removal, hernia repair and other non-urgent operations in September was also 5% up on August. The RCS analysis of NHS performance data, released on Thursday, also found that 21,033 patients were waiting at least nine months for surgery, 59% up on September last year. The increases come after the NHS all but abandoned the long-running target for 92% of patients to be referred within 18 weeks. At the time, the RCS accused it of“waving the white flag”.

Commenting on the latest figures, RCS’s president, Prof Derek Alderson, said: “It is clear that the NHS is under mounting pressure. Waiting several months for treatment could have a serious impact on a patient’s quality of life and the effectiveness of their eventual surgery. “What is most concerning is this rise comes before pressures on the NHS are expected to increase this winter. With bed capacity expected to be at a premium due to continuing issues with social care, some patients needing non-urgent surgery this winter simply will not enter an operating theatre until the spring.”

The NHS data shows that the proportion of patients in England being referred for a non-urgent operation within 18 weeks hit its lowest level since February 2011, at 89.1%. The number of patients waiting more than 18 weeks for referral to treatment was 20% compared with the same period last year to 417,771 , and there was an increase of 50% in the number waiting more than a year to 1,778.

Alderson said: “With the 18-week waiting time target already deprioritised, and Simon Stevens saying that without an increase in funding, waiting time targets may have to be abolished, we are concerned that before long waiting six months for non-urgent surgery may begin to become the norm.

Instead of Killing Him, U.S. Government to Possibly Pay Evil Traitor Bowe Bergdahl Over $300,000

When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl came home in 2014, he was potentially entitled to hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay that accumulated over five years while he was in Taliban captivity in Afghanistan.

Bergdahl was captured after walking off base on June 30, 2009, while deployed to Paktika province with 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. He pleaded guilty in October to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. On Nov. 3, a military judge ruled Bergdahl would not serve any jail time but be dishonorably discharged from the Army and reduced in rank to private.

From the moment he was captured, Bergdahl became eligible for extra pays available to captive troops.

In total, along with his basic and deployment pay, he could be entitled to more than $300,000.

But the Army has not calculated that pay yet, a G-1 spokesman told Army Times, because the legal proceedings since his homecoming in 2014 have put that in limbo.

“Based upon the results of trial, the Army is reviewing Sgt. Bergdahl’s pay and allowances,” Lt. Col. Randy Taylor told Army Times. “His final pay and allowances will be determined in accordance with DoD policy and Army regulation.”

Those policies and regulations require the Army to wait for Gen. Robert Abrams, the commander of Army Forces Command and the convening authority in this case, to approve the sentence that was handed down to Bergdahl, an Army official, who was not authorized to speak on the record, told Army Times.

If Abrams accepts Bergdahl’s sentence, the official said, the service can begin the long process of determining how much money Bergdahl earned in the past eight or so years.

“My understanding is there has to be an administrative determination of his duty status at each point, from the time he was captured until now,” the official said.

The Defense Department marked Bergdahl as “Duty Status-Whereabouts Unknown” on June 30, 2009, Military.com reported in 2014. Three days later, he was switched to “Missing-Captured,” when a Taliban propaganda video showed him alive and detained.

The Army will use that timeline to determine his pay. Ordinarily, the official said, a soldier who has been marked missing or captured would be entitled to back pay upon return.

But Bergdahl, who has been assigned to a desk job since his return and drawing commensurate pay, may not be considered a prisoner of war after pleading guilty to desertion.

“In order to figure out what he’s owed, you’re basically going to have to start from that point of captivity,” the official said.

In the end, the official added, Bergdahl may be entitled to his accumulated basic pay while in captivity but not the Basic Allowance for Housing, Basic Allowance for Subsistence and per diem given to prisoners.

Or, he added, it may turn out that Bergdahl “owes us,” if it’s determined he should not be paid for his time in captivity, or that he has been overpaid since his return.

Reached for comment, Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s attorney, said the defense team’s focus has turned to preparing the case for an appeal. He declined to elaborate.

“We are currently identifying the issues we will be pursuing,” Fidell said.

An appeal would put off the Army’s pay and benefits determination, the official said.

Fidell declined to comment on the back pay situation, or on a report by USA Today that he believed Bergdahl should receive the Prisoner of War Medal.

Idiot Kathy Griffin Insults Our President in Germany, Suddenly Blacks Out and Collapses on Stage!

Kathy Griffin blacked out and fell to the ground at the end of a performance in Dublin, Ireland on Wednesday night.

The stand-up comedian was nearing the end of her Laugh Your Head Off world tour engagement at Dublin’s Vicar Street theater when she fainted onstage. Griffin confirmed the event and explained in a video shared on her Twitter feed.

“I fainted at the end of my show. I’m embarrassed more than anything,” she begins.

Thank you for an amazing night Dublin! pic.twitter.com/SBRmkjgmHB

— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) November 8, 2017

She then went on to explain exactly what happened. “Anyway I’m in Dublin, just leaving the show,” she says, “And I had one more story. I had five more minutes. I had gone for almost two and a half hours.”

Griffin then went on to reference daytime talk show host Wendy Williams’ own on-air fainting spell on Halloween, saying, “This one’s for you, Wendy Williams. Girl down. I had a girl down moment.”

The comedian concluded by thanking her audience for their support. “The audience was fantastic. Thank you for being forgiving and understanding, and I promise to be upright the entire show next time,” she said.

Griffin’s world tour continues Friday in London.

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.

'Useless' surgical masks and robots could be scrapped to help save NHS £150 million a year

>After targeting gays >>569647 and fat people and smokers >>569814 the NHS has found another way to save themselves some money. And remember kids: social healthcare werks!

Surgical masks and robotic operations are a needless waste of NHS money, Imperial College has said, after identifying changes the health service can make to save more than £150 million each year.

Researchers from the Department of Surgery and Cancer, found 71 commonly performed procedures or practices that are of high-cost but low-value to patients, which could be stopped.

They include hernia repair operations for people with few symptoms, which currently cost the NHS £28 million a year, but do little to make people feel better.

Likewise using CT scans to diagnose appendicitis was found to have little benefit above and beyond the traditional blood tests and hands-on pressure checks by doctors. Scrapping them could save the health service four million pounds, the report found.

The team also discovered that robotic surgery has ‘little or no advantage’ when compared with traditional keyhole operations and said it must be ‘considered a candidate for disinvestment.’ There is also no evidence to show that infections can be prevented by surgical masks, even though they cost the health service £150,000 a year.

Louie C.K. sez cum 2 my hotel room,bitches say ok,Louie whips it out and faps,Sony dumps him

The premiere for Louis C.K.'s new film, "I Love You, Daddy" was abruptly canceled on Thursday

"Due to unexpected circumstances, tonight's event for 'I Love You, Daddy' has been cancelled," the film's production company, The Orchard, said in a statement.

Comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that in 2002, C.K. exposed himself to them after inviting them to hang out in his hotel room.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating, Goodman told the New York Times.

Three other women alleged separate acts of sexual misconduct.

CNN has not confirmed the women's stories independently and has reached out to representatives for C.K. for comment. His publicist Lewis Kay told the Times that the comedian "is not going to answer any questions."

It's not the first time there has been talk in the press about C.K. and inappropriate behavior.

In 2015, Gawker published a story titled "Louis C.K. Will Call You Up to Talk About His Alleged Sexual Misconduct," which included allegations that the comic exposed himself and masturbated in front of female comedians who were not named in the story.

A year later, Roseanne Barr told the Daily Beast she was aware of the stories about C.K.'s alleged behavior.

Roseanne Barr told the Daily Beast she was aware of the stories about C.K.'s alleged behavior.

"It's Louis C.K., locking the door and masturbating in front of women comics and writers," she said. "I can't tell you—I've heard so many stories."

Superior race,Chinese & Koreans get taller,Amerimidges shrink

Americans Are Shrinking, While Chinese And Koreans Sprout Up

East Asians stood out for their exceptional growth. Eighteen-year-olds in Japan, China and South Korea are much taller today than a century ago. While growth in Japan has started to decline a bit, like the countries in the West, China and South Korea continue to climb the height ladder

Africa may be rising economically, but its people are shrinking. In many countries, 18-year-old men have gotten shorter since the 1970s and 1960s, after the end of the colonial era.

Here in the U.S., heights have plateaued — or even started to decline slightly. They peaked in 1988 for women and 1996 for men.

"There was a time when the U.S. was the land of plenty," says Majid Ezzati, of Imperial College London, who helped to lead the study. "But increasingly over time, the quality of nutrition has worsened."

Income inequality has increased in the U.S. since the 1970s, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities reported. "In some sense, you have a large part of the population who are not getting quality food," Ezzati says. "That drags down the whole place."

"You have countries that suddenly cut their entire health care budgets and agricultural [budgets] by large amounts," Ezzati says. "Those who were affected the most were the poorest."

Although genes play a big role in determining how many inches we sprout up during childhood, average height is a great litmus test for the overall health of a population.

Nutrition and the number of childhood infections help determine how tall you grow. "And there's increasingly good evidence that people who are taller on average tend to live longer," Ezzati says.

"A big part of that is due to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease [for taller men and women]," he says. Taller women also have a lower risk of complications during childbirth, and their newborn babies are less likely to die than those born to shorter women.

having extra inches as a kid is also connected to success later in life. "Being taller is actually a good marker of better educational attainment and higher income," he adds. "Those are big changes with big benefits [to society]."

1 dose of New Miracle Drug melts away fat inside arteries lke draino in yor plumping

A new drug being trialled for treating breast cancer and diabetes has been shown to 'melt away' the fat inside arteries that can cause heart attacks and strokes.

Researchers from the University of Aberdeen, using pre-clinical mouse models, showed that just a single dose of the drug (Trodusquemine) completely reversed the effects of a disease that causes a host of heart problems.

Atherosclerosis is the build-up of fatty material inside the arteries.

Over time this fatty material can grow bigger until your arteries become so narrow that not enough blood can pass through.

Atherosclerosis is the condition that causes most heart attacks and strokes.

In pre-clinical tests, mice with set-in atherosclerosis, mimicking what happens in humans, had less fatty plaques in their arteries whether they had regular doses over time or just a single dose of Trodusquemine.

The drug works by stopping an enzyme called PTP1B, which is normally increased in people with obesity or diabetes and conditions involving prolonged inflammation such as sepsis, inflamed diabetic foot ulcers and allergic lung inflammation. The researchers found that it also stimulated the action of another protein (AMPK), which ==effectively mimics exercise==

and reduces chronic inflammation.

Users of TripAdvisor say their reports of rape and assault by beaners were removed by the site

The users say they were told their reviews were deemed hearsay or unsuitable for the family-friendly site. The site makes money from hotels that pay commissions and advertising fees. A TripAdvisor spokesperson said that the company will introduce a new “badge” notification system.

The travel booking and review website TripAdvisor is built on trust between itself, its users, and the businesses that receive reviews and customers from the site.

But that trust is breaking in dangerous ways, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which found numerous examples of users reporting first-hand accounts of rape and assault in reviews for hotels and resorts, only to find that their testimonies had been removed by the site.

The users were given a variety of reasons for the deletions, from accusations of hearsay to violations of the site’s family-friendly policy. In one case, at least three users reported being raped or sexually assaulted at the same Mexican resort, only to find that their posts had been removed. The deletion of these reviews has likely resulted in subsequent travelers being put in harm’s way.

“Maybe we wouldn’t have gone or maybe that wouldn’t have happened to me,” Jamie Valeri, a mother of six from Wisconsin, told the Journal Sentinel, speculating as to how she might have been able to avoid being assaulted had a review of a prior guest’s similar experience not been removed from the site.

Venezuela teeters on brink of default

Caracas (AFP) - Longstanding fears of a Venezuela debt default crystallized Wednesday, as the political crisis engulfing the sinking OPEC state deepened with a meeting set at the UN Security Council and the EU eyeing an arms embargo.

Investors were bracing for what looked to be an inevitable "credit event" that analysts said could arrive within days – before a "refinancing and restructuring" of the debt called for by President Nicolas Maduro.

While the country's isolation means the risk of contagion to international financial markets is limited, a default could trigger a global rush to seize assets owned by the Venezuelan government and its state oil company PDVSA, and plunge the struggling nation into a full-blown humanitarian emergency.

Already, its 32 million citizens are suffering shortages of food, medicine and other essentials as their money, the bolivar, is decimated by hyperinflation and recession reigns. Hundreds of thousands have left the country to survive, and many, many more could follow.

Pussy Pass: Psychotic Killer Gets Slap on the Wrist - Could be Paroled by Christmas

GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) — A woman who admitted removing a plug from her fiance’s kayak before it capsized in the Hudson River but maintained she was falsely accused of intentionally causing his death was sentenced on Wednesday to up to four years in state prison.

Angelika Graswald, 37, pleaded guilty last summer to criminally negligent homicide in the death of her fiance, Vincent Viafore, 46, of Poughkeepsie. Her sentence, of 16 months to four years, means she could be released on parole as soon as late December, based on the amount of time she spent in jail awaiting trial.

Graswald was questioned for 11 hours and told police she was ambivalent about Viafore’s drowning because they had been in a bad relationship.

“I wanted him dead, and now he’s gone and I’m fine with it,” she said during the interrogation.

Richard Dreyfuss' son sez Kevin Spacey ♪touched me in the mornin',then just walked away♫

Kevin Spacey accused of sexual assault by son of actor Richard Dreyfuss

Harry Dreyfuss, who was 18 at the time of the incident, made the claims in an essay published by Buzzfeed. In it he described Spacey as a “sexual predator”, who felt “safe” to abuse him, knowing that he “wouldn’t say a word”.

.

Dreyfuss claims that the alleged encounter happened in London in 2008 while his father was rehearsing for the play Complicit, which was being directed by Spacey.

Dreyfuss said that, during the rehearsal, Spacey repeatedly placed his hand on his thigh. He said that his father was unaware of the incident, as he was “deeply focused on his script”. Dreyfuss claims that when he moved to a different seat, Spacey followed him and continued to hold his thigh, before groping his crotch.

Dreyfuss added that he did not alert his father to the alleged incident as he feared that it might start a feud between his father and Spacey. “I didn’t want the play to be threatened,” he said.

“It just never occurred to me that Kevin would be interested in me in the first place. He was an adult man, a hero of mine, my dad’s boss, none of which were categories on my radar for sexual interactions. Besides, I thought, surely he can’t be coming on to me like this right in front of my dad,” he added.

Dreyfuss said he had sought to downplay the alleged incident in the nine years since it occurred by “telling people the story at parties for laughs”. He said that he finally felt emboldened to speak publicly after hearing the claims against Harvey Weinstein.

“I came to see how important it is to add my voice to the people who are demanding a better world. A world in which powerful men are no longer allowed to feel safe to do this, or far worse,”

Developing: Louis C.K.'s New Film Canceled, Bombshell Story Coming, Another Libtard on Suicide Watch

The 'I Love You, Daddy' screening was abruptly axed just hours before it was set to take place.

The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, set for Thursday, has been canceled. Reps for the premiere, due to take place at the Paris Theatre, cited "unexpected circumstances."

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break, and the premiere was canceled in case it is damaging. Additionally, Louis C.K.'s planned appearance on CBS' The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was also canceled, with William H. Macy taking his place.

Louis C.K. wrote, directed and stars in I Love You, Daddy. The comedy-drama tells the story of a successful TV writer-producer who attempts to stop his 17-year-old daughter's (Chloe Grace Moretz) growing admiration and relationship with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). The film also stars Pamela Adlon, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day, Edie Falco and Helen Hunt.

C.K. shot the film entirely in secret last June. He also financed the project and edited it as well. Dave Becky of 3 Arts produced the film alongside C.K., Vernon Chatman, Ryan Cunningham and John Skidmore. Tony Hernandez executive produced.

The film generated controversy following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. TIFF programmers had screened it and given I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers, letting them know the film existed.

Controversial dialogue appears throughout the film, including the use of the N-word by C.K.'s character and multiple jokes about child rape. C.K. previously defended the inappropriate content to THR. "We're depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these beautiful apartments and offices saying whatever they want," he said. "Folks say shit to each other. You can't think about the audience when you're making the thing. If you do, you're not giving them something that came out of your gut. You'll be making something that you're like, 'Is this OK for you?'"

The film pays homage to the cinematic work of Woody Allen, particularly the 1979 film Manhattan. In the Allen film, a 17-year-old girl (Mariel Hemingway) begins a romantic relationship with a 42-year-old man played by Allen.

A common criticism of I Love You, Daddy is that the film parallels the long-standing sexual abuse allegations against Allen. "We're at the bleeding edge of 'That's not OK to do now,' but those people are still around," C.K. said about dealing with the controversial topics in the film. "That's a very interesting line to be on."

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.

Man ‘rapes neighbour’s 18-month-old baby in front of his children then dumps her outside’

A man has been arrested after allegedly raping his neighbour’s 18-month-old baby in front of his young children.

The toddler had been dropped off at her neighbour’s house so she could play with their two children, aged two and four, when the alleged rape happened. Police say she was raped in their one-room home in New Delhi, India, on Wednesday and was then dumped outside her house while she was bleeding. Swati Maliwal, the head of the Delhi Commission for Women, said: ”The poor child cannot even speak, she is just laying there.’ The suspect, who is reportedly 33, was arrested yesterday following the alleged assault in the Aman Vihar neighbourhood. His wife is believed to have been working on the terrace at the time of the rape, according to First Post. The man has now been charged with aggravated penetrative sexual assault under India’s Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

Trannys Beat Up Old Lady; Police Refuse to List Gender of Suspects Out of Fear of Being 'Wrong'

Police have refused to reveal the gender of two people suspected of punching a 60-year-old woman in the face during a brawl at a transgender event in case they get it wrong.

Scotland Yard, apparently concerned about a potential backlash, said it was “a grey area” and dependant on how the suspects describe themselves.

“We have to be very careful,” she said. “We are not going to commit ourselves to something because I’m afraid it’s not black and white.”

One of the suspects, who allegedly knocked the woman to the ground, smashing her camera and kicking her several times, is described as being of “white, around 5ft 7ins and of slim build with brown chin-length hair with blonde ends.”

The other had short blonde hair and was wearing a black, grey and white hooded camouflage jacket and multi coloured leggings.

A third suspect is a confirmed man, around 6ft tall with brown shoulder-length hair worn in a pony tail.

The police spokeswoman said the suspects “may possibly be transgender individuals”.

The brawl took place last month at Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park ahead of a gender recognition talk.

The event was being hosted by a panel of Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs), who believe that trans women should not be given the same rights as those born female.

It had been due to take place at New Cross Learning Centre, south east London, but was cancelled after transgender activists lobbied the venue.

Instead, around 80 attendees were gathered in Hyde Park waiting to be given information about a secret new venue when Maria MacLachlan, who describes herself as a “gender critical feminist”, was knocked to the ground.

A Times journalist who was at the event wrote: “Trans activists and feminists were chanting and taunting each other.

“Maria was taking photographs when an opponent grappled with her, snatched her camera and smashed it on the ground.

“Then a tall, male-bodied, hooded figure wearing makeup rushed over, hit her several times and as police arrived, ran away. I asked a young activist if she was OK with men smacking women: ‘It's not a guy, you're a piece of s— and I'm happy they hit her,’ came the reply.”

Video posted on social media appears to show a clash between two groups, some holding placards railing against misogyny and featuring the word TERFS.

After the attack, Ms MacLachlan, a mother-of-two, wrote on Facebook: "I am 60 years old and tonight I got beaten up and had my camera smashed by a bunch of kids young enough to be my grandchildren.

"Earlier this year, my sympathies for trans people started to evaporate after being shocked at the hatred and abuse and threats of violence being directed at women who think as I do, which is that gender is a load of crap and there's nothing wrong with being a 'feminine' man or a 'masculine woman' but the bottom line is that women are adult human females and men are adult human males.”

The hamburger Trump ate in Japan sells out as diners track down the presidential meal

This Tokyo small business owner is at the centre of attention after his signature burger was selected to be served to the President.

In amongst all the speeches and outings held during Trump’s first visit to Japan as U.S. President, the one thing that stood out for many people was the fact that during his visit to a golf course with the Japanese Prime Minister, the two chose to eat hamburgers.

While some criticised the decision to shun the country’s UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage-listed traditional cuisine, others immediately started searching the Internet to find out where they could get their hands on a burger deemed worthy to be served to the U.S. President.

It turns out that the burger comes from a small Tokyo business owner who operates two burger stands in the city – Munch’s Burger Shack in Shiba (pictured below) and Munch’s Burger Stand at Toranomon.

White Supremacists Share Bomb-Making Materials in Online Chats

Chat logs made available to ProPublica show talk of mass killings and the recipes that could be used to carry them out.

Right-wing extremists communicating in confidential online chats in recent months have shared scores of documents detailing the manufacture and use of bombs, grenades, mines and other incendiary devices.

The documents, which range from instructions on detonating dynamite to U.S. military manuals for constructing improvised explosives and booby traps, were passed around during online conversations among members of Anticom, a secretive and militant group that has emerged during the past year.

Records of the online chats were made available to ProPublica by Unicorn Riot, a leftist media collective that has reported critically on racist marches and right-wing political rallies in cities around the U.S.

Anticom, or Anti-Communist Action, views itself as a guerilla army fighting against what it has called the radical elements of the country’s political left. On its social media channels, Anticom openly embraces fascist ideology and imagery, and the group’s members have engaged in hate-filled talk involving Jews, Muslims, immigrants and African Americans. In recent weeks Anticom has stepped out of the shadows as its members have provided security to so-called alt-right champion Richard Spencer at a speaking event in Florida. Anticom also helped to organize a “White Lives Matter” protest in Shelbyville, Tennessee, last weekend.

Grab maga:Harvey Weinstein Used Undercover Ex-Mossad Agents To Silence Accusers, Halt Publications

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein – who sources tell Page Six is about to be indicted for rape by the Manhattan DA – used a network of attorneys, private detectives and a firm run by former Israeli Mossad agents in a failed attempt to silence his accusers and prevent The New York Times and The New Yorker from publishing allegations of sexual harassment, assault and rape – according to an explosive New Yorker article by journalist Ronan Farrow.

One of the firms employed by Weinstein, referred to him by Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, was UK based Black Cube – which promotes itself as “a select group of veterans from the Israeli elite intelligence units,” set up a fake London wealth management firm (thin disguise guys) and sent a female ex-Mossad agent posing as women’s rights advocate “Diana Filip” to befriend and spy on actress Rose McGowan.

“I took her to the Venice boardwalk and we had ice cream while we strolled,” McGowan told Farrow, adding that Filip was “very kind."

Ronan Farrow writes in The New Yorker (again surprise):

When I sent McGowan photos of the Black Cube agent, she recognized her instantly. “Oh my God,” she wrote back. “Reuben Capital. Diana Filip. No fucking way.”

George Bush sr says,"I'm David Copafeel" & cops a feel for the 3rd time

A third woman has accused George H.W. Bush of groping her, saying he even used the same 'David Cop-a-Feel' joke another accuser mentioned.

Novelist Christina Baker Kline claims the former president's wandering hands were caught in an official photo from a Houston event for the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy in 2014.

In an essay for Slate, Kline says she and her husband approached Bush, now 93, for a photo after the private luncheon, to which she was invited as a guest author.

Kline writes that Bush told her he was beautiful and then, noting she is an author, said 'You wanna know my favorite book?'

She writes: 'By now the photographer was readying the shot. My husband stood on one side of the wheelchair, and I stood on the other. President Bush put his arm around me, low on my back.

'His comic timing was impeccable. “David Cop-a-feel,” he said, and squeezed my butt, hard, just as the photographer snapped the photo.'

Kline says her husband, who was also in the photo on the other side of Bush, was completely unaware of what was happening at the time.

'I wasn’t traumatized. I’m not angry. But it shouldn’t have happened,' Kline wrote, adding that she hopes coming forward would 'begin to effect change'.

ZOG Scientists Look For A Cure For Politically Undesirable Behavior, Forced RFID Implants For Goyim

The ‘Free World’ has taken on where the Soviet scientists and psychiatrists left off.

Liberal (((Scientists))) of formerly renowned Universities in Bonn and Lübeck do research on treatment for politically undesirable behaviour like their Soviet colleagues from the infamous Serbsky Central Research Institute in Moscow. In the Soviet Union people who protested the system had to undergo psychiatric treatment.

Vladimir Bukovsky, a world-known dissident survived one and described it. The same will be the fate of the so called Free World’s citizens if they fail to conform to the idea of a multi-cultural society. The powers that be have given a signal, and obliging, complaisant scientists are already busy working on bettering our collective and individual psyche. Apart from homophobia and Islamophobia, xenophobia is another psychiatric condition that needs to undergo therapy…hormonal therapy.

Throughout history, the world has been torn by two opposing factors that face each other with daggers drawn. These are natural biological, and unnatural forces, or reality and dystopia. It is natural for a human being to want to possess things and work as little as possible; to counter it, dystopian socialists, communists or Christian heretics came up with an idea of a society governed by the principle: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

It was supposed to work. And it failed miserably everywhere it was installed and implemented, from Cuba to East Germany, to the Soviet Union, to North Korea.

Hackney[2] council’s development, Tower Court in Stamford Hill, north-east London, will include lifts which do not require manual operation on Shabbat, the Jewish sabbath; open balconies to accommodate temporary enclosures during the religious holiday of Sukkot, and separate kitchens which can be easily adapted to kosher requirements.

Some of the 132 flats will be larger than the norm, with four or five bedrooms. Haredi, or ultra-Orthodox, families typically include seven or eight children.

The development will also house the London headquarters of Hatzola, a Jewish volunteer medical emergency service, which operates around the world.

Tower Court used to be an estate of 67 homes, which was demolished in 2014 ahead of regeneration. The project was put out to competitive tender, with a brief to pay special attention to the the housing requirements of the Haredi community.

Thirty-five percent of the new homes will be available for social rent, with half sold on the open market and 15% sold under special schemes such as shared ownership.

“All homes for rent will be allocated according to housing needs,” said a spokesperson for Hackney council. The flats had not been designed solely for Haredi families, he stressed, and they would not be prioritised ( yeah because they never favour jews). Some flats would be allocated to former tenants of the demolished estate.

Man ‘assaulted by masseuse who tried to perform sex act on him after massage

A man claimed he was sexually assaulted by his masseuse when she stripped off and tried to perform a sex act on him. Josh Burbridge, a 23-year-old who has waived his right to anonymity, said he went for a sports massage after having sore muscles from a Halloween party on Saturay.

The barista from Tonbridge, Kent, said that after his pre-paid 45 minutes of massage were over, the masseuse took her clothes off, grabbed his genitals, and attempted to perform a sex act. She also demanded extra cash. Kent Police confirmed that the incident was reported to them, and that they are currently investigating. ‘When I got to the room I stripped down until it was just my jeans that were on,’ he said. ‘She told me to strip all the way down. I did – I was fully naked – I expected her to come in with a towel.

Latino Student vs Batshit Crazy Liberal Teacher

Is the wall here yet? Those are some of the questions that Latino children ask their classmates as reported by a teacher in Tennessee, this is after some of these children were told that they’ll be deported and blocked from returning home by the wall proposed by President Trump.

A Southern Poverty Law Center survey of teachers across the country provided insights into the schools proving that hate has spread into schools. Classrooms are now filled with inflamed racial and ethnic tensions.

The survey, which was conducted from March 23 to April 2, asked questions about the impact of the presidential campaign on schoolchildren. The report reveals that "The Trump Effect: The Impact of the Presidential Campaign on Our Nation’s Schools," according to the teachers, there has been an increase in the bullying, harassment and intimidation of students whose races, religions or nationalities were targeted by the 2016 Presidential Candidates.

Richard Cohen, who is the President of Southern Poverty, revealed that the there’s a deep concern about the level of fear among minority children who feel threatened by both the incendiary campaign rhetoric and the bullying they’re encountering in school.

The fear and tension increase the burden of immigrant students who are struggling with the language barrier, after-school job and family work. Recently, fans have taunted players, especially Latino players — with "Trump! and "Build a wall!" at high school sporting events in Iowa.

Many people would be surprised about how a Latino student would transcend this kind of mentality and decide to support President Trump, well, that was exactly the case in the footage shown below where a student is seen talking as he defends his opinion about Trump.

Soros funded Vegas shooting

Posted here cause /pol/ are a bunch of antifa twinks.

Despite the mainstream media claims that Stephen Paddock had no political affiliations, the Las Vegas shooter was in reality a supporter of Hillary Clinton and member of Antifa in receipt of funding by George Soros, according to reports.

Mainstream media is claiming Paddock operated without motive, beyond being an “angry white man“, and is using statements by his girlfriend and brother, who both expressed total shock that Paddock carried out the massacre, to push a false narrative.

Mainstream media is actively suppressing information that proves Paddock was actually a left-wing operative at the heart of a false flag designed to spark civil war, introduce martial law, and terrorize conservatives across the country.

CIA trained intelligence officer and former U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer spoke out about the deception, claiming that Paddock deliberately targeted a country music concert so he could kill Trump supporters.

Texan Religous Right sew what they reap;Madman guns down 26 in church

He opened fire on the congregation inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs during Sunday morning service, killing at least 26 people and wounding up to 20 others.

The US official said Kelly lived in a suburb of San Antonio and did not appear to be linked to organised terrorist groups.

The official says investigators are looking at social media posts Kelley may have made in the days before the attack, including one that appeared to show an AR-15 semiautomatic weapon.

He was court-martialed for assault on his spouse and child

Federal law prohibits a person who has been dishonorably discharged from buying a firearm. Whether Kelley's discharge would trigger the law was not immediately clear.

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.

Feces & other pollutants kill 1 in 4 Injuns:worse record in world

Pollution causes 1 in 4 premature deaths in India, the worst in the world: Study

One out of every four premature deaths in India in 2015, or some 2.5 million, was attributed to pollution, the study found. China’s environment was the second deadliest, with more than 1.8 million premature deaths, or one in five, blamed on pollution-related illness.

One out of every six premature deaths in the world in 2015 — about 9 million — could be attributed to disease from toxic exposure.

Associated Press, New Delhi

Environmental pollution — from filthy air to contaminated water — is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. More than smoking, hunger or natural disasters. More than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

One out of every six premature deaths in the world in 2015 — about 9 million — could be attributed to disease from toxic exposure, according to a major study released Thursday in The Lancet medical journal. Asia and Africa are the regions putting the most people at risk, the study found, while India tops the list of individual countries.

The financial cost from pollution-related death, sickness and welfare is equally massive, the report says, costing some $4.6 trillion in annual losses — or about 6.2% of the global economy.

Free Speech Enemy Vladimir Putin Fearfully Detains Alexei Navalny Ahead of Rally

MOSCOW (AP) — Police took Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny into custody in Moscow on Friday and detained his associates in a city where he was heading for a rally.

Navalny posted a video on his Instagram account early Friday morning of what he said were officers outside his home asking him to come to a police station. He tweeted from the police station late in the afternoon, saying that he was still held there without charges or any explanation why he had been detained.

Navalny had planned to travel to the city of Nizhny Novgorod where he was to lead a rally later on Friday.

After he announced his presidential bid last year, Navalny, a top Kremlin foe and arguably Russia’s most popular opposition politician, inspired a grassroots campaign in Russian regions to support his nomination. The crackdown comes after he held rallies in six Russian cities, from Murmansk in the northwest to Khabarovsk on the border with China.

The Interior Ministry said in a statement on Friday that Navalny was detained because of his calls for unsanctioned rallies.

The rally in Nizhny Novgorod, however, had received City Hall approval.

Navalny’s supporters, in the meantime, reported that police seized their equipment, which was already installed at a city square ahead of the rally. At least two of Navalny’s associates including his campaign chief Leonid Volkov were taken in custody in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday.

“The Kremlin views my meetings with voters as a huge threat and even an insult,” Navalny tweeted. “They were saying for so long that opposition has no support in the regions, and it now pains them to even look at our rallies.”

He recorded and posted online a video from the police station, calling on his supporters in Nizhny Novgorod to come to the rally even if he does not make it there.

The Kremlin has dismissed Navalny, who has faced repeated jailings and criminal cases, as an urbanite out of touch with people living in Russia’s 11 time zones where President Vladimir Putin draws his support from. That began to change earlier this year when Navalny opened campaign offices in 80 cities and towns, most of which had not seen a political life for decades, attracting thousands of supporters.

In Germany, Ulrike Demmer, a spokeswoman for Chancellor Angela Merkel, told reporters on Friday the government “views the arrests of activists including Navalny … with incomprehension and great concern.”

Whose the Biggest chickenhawk in Hollywood?

In 1996, I was barely 18 and a freshman at USC. To make extra money, I "performed" at a Bryan Singer party given for Kevin Spacey. It took 3 burning hot rape showers to wash the filth off of me. %0D %0D Singer didn't fuck anyone that night, way too into directing these two guys fuck and doing coke. Spacey got fucked by another guy while he licked my hole. Spacey also likes cum facials and toe sucking. He has a little dick.

Supposedly Bryan Singer only gave Renfro the role in Apt Pupil after Renfro agreed to go on a vacation with him. And he allegedly popped Renfro's cherry on this "vacation"

The Encino mansion known as the M&C Estate—owned by a convicted sex offender named in the lawsuit against Bryan Singer—was home to the wild gay sex parties where Hollywood bigwigs allegedly preyed on underage boys. It was also used to film a 1998 pilot for Digital Entertainment Network described as a "gay pedophile version of Silver Spoons," starring an as yet unknown Seann William Scott.

That ole pedo Joel Schumacher did both Coreys filming The Lost Boys. Fact.

“Don’t worry, we won’t ever view your children as…(whispers) black.”

Then Michael Brown was shot in the street in the summer of 2014, and my world shattered. On social media, I watched Brown be tried and convicted in the minds of so many, before he was even laid to rest. I heard the opinions of many fellow congregants, quick to criminalize a black boy and beatify the police officer who had killed him. He was poor and black, and that apparently erased any dignity he was owed.

We went now to an all black church

They barely noticed our whiteness

At one point I broke down crying when Brown’s murder was mentioned. A black mom reached across the aisle of chairs, hugged me, and said, “I get it. I have a black son, too.”

We kept coming back to the new church. It was our home now.

Mossad Agents Helped Harvey Weinstein Cover Up Rape Allegations Against Him (yes, really)

Harvey Weinstein’s Army of Spies: The film executive hired private investigators, including ex-Mossad agents, to track actresses and journalists.

In the fall of 2016, Harvey Weinstein set out to suppress allegations that he had sexually harassed or assaulted numerous women. He began to hire private security agencies to collect information on the women and the journalists trying to expose the allegations. According to dozens of pages of documents, and seven people directly involved in the effort, the firms that Weinstein hired included Kroll, which is one of the world’s largest corporate-intelligence companies, and Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies. Black Cube, which has branches in Tel Aviv, London, and Paris, offers its clients the skills of operatives “highly experienced and trained in Israel’s elite military and governmental intelligence units,” according to its literature.

Two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, met with the actress Rose McGowan, who eventually publicly accused Weinstein of rape, to extract information from her. One of the investigators pretended to be a women’s-rights advocate and secretly recorded at least four meetings with McGowan. The same operative, using a different false identity and implying that she had an allegation against Weinstein, met twice with a journalist to find out which women were talking to the press. In other cases, journalists directed by Weinstein or the private investigators interviewed women and reported back the details.

The explicit goal of the investigations, laid out in one contract with Black Cube, signed in July, was to stop the publication of the abuse allegations against Weinstein that eventually emerged in the New York Times and The New Yorker. Over the course of a year, Weinstein had the agencies “target,” or collect information on, dozens of individuals, and compile psychological profiles that sometimes focussed on their personal or sexual histories. Weinstein monitored the progress of the investigations personally. He also enlisted former employees from his film enterprises to join in the effort, collecting names and placing calls that, according to some sources who received them, felt intimidating.

In some cases, the investigative effort was run through Weinstein’s lawyers, including David Boies, a celebrated attorney who represented Al Gore in the 2000 Presidential-election dispute and argued for marriage equality before the U.S. Supreme Court. Boies personally signed the contract directing Black Cube to attempt to uncover information that would stop the publication of a Times story about Weinstein’s abuses, while his firm was also representing the Times, including in a libel case.

Boies confirmed that his firm contracted with and paid two of the agencies and that investigators from one of them sent him reports, which were then passed on to Weinstein. He said that he did not select the firms or direct the investigators’ work. He also denied that the work regarding theTimes story represented a conflict of interest. Boies said that his firm’s involvement with the investigators was a mistake. “We should not have been contracting with and paying investigators that we did not select and direct,” he told me. “At the time, it seemed a reasonable accommodation for a client, but it was not thought through, and that was my mistake. It was a mistake at the time.”

Techniques like the ones used by the agencies on Weinstein’s behalf are almost always kept secret, and, because such relationships are often run through law firms, the investigations are theoretically protected by attorney-client privilege, which could prevent them from being disclosed in court. The documents and sources reveal the tools and tactics available to powerful individuals to suppress negative stories and, in some cases, forestall criminal investigations.

In a statement, Weinstein’s spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister, said, “It is a fiction to suggest that any individuals were targeted or suppressed at any time.”

rogue Twitter employee shut down Donald Trump’s account

A single person who works for Twitter – and not even someone who works in and around their government arm – was able to take down the Twitter account of the President of the United States? Someone with more than 41 million followers who is, if I haven't mentioned it, the President of the United States?

That's concerning on a few levels:

1. How does Twitter not have a series of tripwires that keep any single person from wreaking this sort of havoc?

Getting rid of Trump's email account for 11 minutes isn't – in the grand scheme of things – all that big a deal. But what if someone found a way to take over Trump's account and tweeted: "I've just OK'd a nuclear strike against North Korea?"

Trump political woes to track him to Asia

Trump political woes to track him to Asia

With any past president, a tweet like that would immediately be assumed as the result of some sort of hack. With Trump, who knows?

2. Trump was never going to get rid of his Twitter feed as President. He believes it is absolutely essential not only to his electoral success but to his ability to end-run the "fake news" media and push his message directly to his supporters. And he has used Twitter in office like no president before him (and maybe no president who comes after him will).

But this outage episode highlights the inherent dangers in using a platform you don't control as your primary way of communicating not just your thoughts but actual policy pronouncements. If one customer service employee at Twitter can remove the account of the President of the United States for more than 10 minutes, how susceptible is Trump's account to other sorts of pranks and hacks? The answer, it would seem, is "very."

Climate change 'will create world's biggest refugee crisis'

Tens of millions of people will be forced from their homes by climate change in the next decade, creating the biggest refugee crisis the world has ever seen, according to a new report.

Senior US military and security experts have told the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) study that the number of climate refugees will dwarf those that have fled the Syrian conflict, bringing huge challenges to Europe.

“If Europe thinks they have a problem with migration today … wait 20 years,” said retired US military corps brigadier general Stephen Cheney. “See what happens when climate change drives people out of Africa – the Sahel [sub-Saharan area] especially – and we’re talking now not just one or two million, but 10 or 20 [million]. They are not going to south Africa, they are going across the Mediterranean.”

27 yr old fash model tweets horney for stranger things kid,Finn Wolfhard,he says ewwww

A model has come under heavy fire for making an "inappropriate" comment about a 14-year-old actor from Netflix show Stranger Things.

Ali Michael, an American fashion model, shared a photo of Finn Wolfhard on her Instagram story alongside the caption “not to be weird but hit me up in four years”.

Critics quickly pointed out that given the stark age gap - Michael is 27 and Wolfhard is just 14 - the comments are profoundly ill-considered. They also argued the remark would have been deemed a great deal more troubling if the roles were reversed and a 27-year-old man had said the same thing about a 14-year-old.

Ali Michael, 27 years old model, made an inappropriate joke about 14 years old "Stranger Things" actor Finn Wolfhard on her Instagram stories, posting a picture of him and telling him to "hit her up in 4 years"

The nature of my posts in response to television and media are always tongue-in-cheek and never intended to mislead or upset anyone. In the past, I have asked fictitious characters of films to call me (namely Edward Scissorhands and Simba from the Lion King). In this instance, it has become clear to me that asking a character “to call in four years” and inappropriately tagging the underage actor who plays the character (Mike) was upsetting, suggestive and concerning for my audience.”

She continued: “It was never my intention (nor has it ever been) to sexualise a minor in any way shape or form. To those I offended or misled, I apologise for a post made in haste and lacking in sensitivity, particularly considering the landscape of the present culture.”

So Much Wind Power In Germany, Consumers Got Free Energy,Power prices turned negative

A stormy weekend led to free electricity in Germany as wind generation reached a record, forcing power producers to pay customers the most since Christmas 2012 to use electricity. Power prices turned negative as wind output reached 39,409 megawatts on Saturday, equivalent to the output of about 40 nuclear reactors. To keep the grid supply and demand in balance, negative prices encourage producers to either shut power stations or else pay consumers to take the extra electricity off the network.

NYPD Preparing to Arrest Harvey Weinstein

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police said Friday that an actress’ rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein are credible, and if the movie mogul were in the state and the accusation more recent, they would move to arrest him immediately.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said investigators have interviewed actress Paz de la Huerta. She has publicly accused Weinstein of raping her twice in her apartment in 2010 and called police about it on Oct. 26.

Boyce said detectives found the “Boardwalk Empire” actress’ story believable and that two people corroborated portions of her account. They have subpoenaed people in the case.

“If this person was still in New York, and it was recent, we’d go right away and make the arrest. No doubt,” Boyce said of Weinstein. “But we’re talking about a 7-year-old case. And we have to move forward gathering evidence first.”

The factors that made her story credible included: “The ability to articulate each and every minute of the crime, where she was, where they met, where this happened and what he did,” he said.

An email message sent to Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister was not immediately returned. Weinstein, 65, has previously denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

Former Democratic chief: Clinton 'took control' of party

The Democratic Party's ex-interim chief has accused Hillary Clinton of seizing control of the party in exchange for funding during the 2016 campaign.

Ms Brazile wrote that Mrs Clinton's "campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses".

"The funding arrangement was not illegal but it sure looked unethical," she added.

"This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party's integrity."

Ms Brazile came under fire last year after the anti-secrecy website released hacked DNC emails that revealed she had notified the Clinton campaign in advance of a question she would be asked at a town hall-style event hosted by CNN.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, she says, had effective control over the DNC before any ballots were cast in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries. Starting in August 2015, the Clinton team controlled the committee's "finances, strategy and all the money raised". It had say over staff hiring and veto power over press releases and mailings.

(((Her campaign gained control and influence))) over the Democratic committee in large part because the Democrats were (((deeply in debt))) and their operation was ineffective - a condition that developed in large part because Barack Obama allowed it to happen.

Over the course of his presidency, he has been accused of neglecting the party's infrastructure, allowing atrophy at the state and local level, and leading to massive down-ballot defeats during mid-term on his watch.

As the top Democratic officeholder, it was the president's responsibility to ensure Democratic vitality - and the record, at the ballot box and in party coffers, paints a dismal picture.

US President Donald Trump weighed in on Ms Brazile's accusations late on Thursday, saying in a tweet she had "stated the DNC RIGGED the system" to tip the Democratic nomination in Mrs Clinton's favour.

Hundreds of Trump Organization secret subdomains are hosted in Russia

>I’m a software engineer, and you don’t create a subdomain without a good reason. One thing you can do is to use it as a blind drop that bypasses normal internet mail protocols. For example, you could set up a directory on the secret server and dump a file there (via ftp) for another party to find and read. This totally bypasses all email addresses and conventions such as POP3 or IMAP. You wouldn’t know there was communication going on unless you hacked the username/password combo of one of the server’s superusers.

>And let me add that if the server is physically located next to you, you don't even need ftp to dump data there: you just create the file on the drive itself, or plug in a thumb drive, and boom, there it is, ready to be picked up and read by the intended party. Which is why having a server in Russia looks very, very suspicious.

>UPDATE 2:

>And of course I should have realized this before.

>When you want to set up a botnet, in order to flood Facebook or Twitter or any other social media with a bunch of comments or links to Fake News, you need thousands of accounts, and each one of those accounts will need to be hosted on server. And if you want all those thousands of bot accounts to flood the zone at the same time, you need a lot of servers. Hmmmm …

Male pig jewman Dustin Hoffman faces 2nd sexual harassment claim in the Hollycaust

A second woman has come forward with an allegation of harassment against Dustin Hoffman, a day after the actor was forced to apologise for his past behaviour.

Writer and producer Wendy Riss Gatsiounis claims that Hoffman propositioned her during a pitch meeting in 1991, an encounter which she says left her “close to tears”.

Speaking to Variety, Riss Gatsiounis said that the meeting had originally been set up with Hoffman and Tootsie screenwriter Murray Schisgal, to discuss a prospective film adaptation of her play A Darker Purpose. However, at the meeting’s outset, Hoffman allegedly asked Riss Gatsiounis, who was in her 20s, whether she had had sex with a man over 40. “I’ll never forget – he moves back, he opens his arms, and he says, ‘It would be a whole new body to explore,’” Riss Gatsounis said.

“We are an army of thorns,” she added.

Un-named Canadian Actress sues Weinstein for raping her with his tongue

lleged incidents happened almost 20 years ago during film shoot in Toronto

She was asked to meet with Weinstein in his hotel room to discuss future roles in his films.

he forced himself on her.

“He overpowered her, pushed her onto the bed, and took his penis out of his pants. After exposing his penis, he told Doe that he had made various ‘famous actresses’ careers and could make Doe’s career as well,” the lawsuit reads. She claims Weinstein then forced her down and stuck his tongue up her vagina while she resisted; she eventually broke free and escaped the room.

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.

End of Russian Hoax

https://dstormer6em3i4km.onion.link/end-of-russian-hoax-indictments-have-nothing-to-do-with-anything/

So, the indictments are in. There are a barrage of articles being published about this, filling up the pages of most news sites, but it isn’t really something that is very interesting or worth going into the details of, in my view.

Here’s the summary:

Boomer Paul Manafort failed to report millions in earnings, bought up a bunch of vacation properties (inside the US lol)

His business partner, Rick Gates, did the same thing

Another guy, George Papadopoulos, misspoke to the FBI about something that wasn’t illegal, and is being charged with lying

That’s it.

That’s the big reveal, what all of this has been building up to. None of it relates directly to Donald Trump or Russia, none of it is even a big deal.

The fact that these are the charges they’re running with proves that there is nothing there with regards to the Trump-Russia conspiracy. If they had something, they would have charged people for that. Even if they were still going to put these irrelevant charges on the three they’ve charged, they would have held those and released them at the same time or even after the charges relating to Trump and/or Russia.

Charging these people for unrelated crimes is proof that there is no relevant real crime to charge anyone with.

Honestly, I have no idea why Mueller is even involved in these charges. He could have turned the investigation – which is not related to what he’s supposed to be investigating – over to the FBI. I don’t know the details of how all of this works, but from what I do know, it seems that would be the more logical course of action.

Apparently, Mueller felt it was important to “find something,” but all this does is confirm that the investigation was always baseless, and was nothing more than a fishing expedition. Which was the accusation to begin with.

So why not say “we’ve found some evidence of criminality in our investigation, though it doesn’t relate directly to the allegations of collusion with Russia, so we’re turning it over to the FBI”?

I guess they just wanted the headline “FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS INDICTED FOR CERTAIN CRIMES”?

Weird situation. Shows that the Mueller counsel is unorganized and absurd.

Trump is right to celebrate.
