    The arrest of two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks started with a toilet: They asked to use the restroom. They hadn’t bought anything, at least not yet, which was reason for the manager to demand that they leave. Next came calls to the police, handcuffs, outrage, corporate apologies, plans for employee training, and conversations about race and policing that won’t end anytime soon. But it started with a toilet.
  • Europe's supercharged antifa coming to America

    11/03/2017 6:39:31 AM PDT · by rktman · 23 replies ^ | 11/2/2017 | unknown
    The masked left-wing extremists known as “antifa” are notorious in the United States. But it’s nothing compared to what already exists in Europe. “Welcome To Hell” read the antifa banners during the G20 riots in Hamburg over the summer. Antifa groups in Europe are better organized and funded than their American counterparts and are far more willing to resort to violence. Indeed, antifa groups proudly air footage of their violent activities. Most recently, antifa attacked a building owned by “Identitarians” in Germany who oppose mass immigration. Dozens of bricks and inflammatory devices were used against the building, which isn’t just...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor David Corn believe they know why Republicans have a problem with President Barack Obama’s former National Security Advisor Susan Rice – her gender and her skin color. In discussing how Republicans reacted to Rice, who it was revealed this week asked for names of Trump campaign officials to be unmasked in intelligence reports, telling conflicting stories in the past few weeks, Matthews observed, “Notice it’s always a female? Just a thought.” “By the way,” Matthews, whose wife Kathleen is interim Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party, declared, “this is all after the election....

    A search warrant related to the shooting of five Black Lives Matter protesters in Minneapolis reveals new details that may strengthen the case that the shooting was an act of self-defense by white suspects who were being assaulted by black protesters. Three suspects, all white, have been charged in connection with the incident. No black suspects have been charged, despite the information provided to police and recorded comments from Black Lives Matter protesters stating that the white suspects were attacked after being surrounded.

    In August of 2014 Michael Brown, 18, 6-foot-4, 290 lbs., robbed a store in Ferguson [1], Missouri. Brown (who apparently had recently used marijuana) assaulted the clerk, then walked down the middle of the street before being stopped by city police officer Darren Wilson, who tentatively matched Brown as one of the possible suspects in the recent robbery. Brown almost immediately assaulted Wilson and went for his gun, which discharged. He then ran, but reversed course and charged the officer, who shot Brown numerous times until he collapsed and died. Nearly a year later, 32-year-old Kathryn Michelle “Kate” Steinle was...

    Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) told members of the House Wednesday morning that he plans to honor the St. Louis Rams players who entered the field with a ‘hands-up’ pose in solidarity with protesters upset at the failure of the grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson in Michael Brown's death. Rams players Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Chris Givens and Kenny Britt caused controversy after taking the field with a ‘hands-up’ pose during last Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

    Some advice to the folks at Marylou’s coffee chain, now under investigation by the EEOC, on how to fight back: Start laughing. Back during the Clinton years the EEOC went after Hooters for its alleged hiring bias (we all remember how hard Bill Clinton was on women... uh, let me re-phrase that). Hooters refused to hire men to wear the infamous “orange short-shorts and white tank-top” ensemble. The EEOC spent four years pressuring them to hire male waiters, which would have ruined the Hooters concept. Hooters tried reasoning and logic. As one would expect when dealing with bureaucrats, they failed...

    -snip- Although Fehrnstrom is one of Romney’s longest-serving aides, he, like his boss, has no roots in the conservative movement. Fehrnstrom started out as a reporter covering alderman meetings in Boston and lives in liberal Brookline, Mass. His work as a GOP operative has been confined to New England — a region, as he often notes, that’s “pretty rocky terrain for Republicans.” To some influential conservatives, Fehrnstrom is an enigma. It’s not that conservatives don’t trust him. It’s that some don’t even know him. “I’ve never heard of him. I’ve been going to conservative meetings since I was knee-high to...

    Wearing bright orange t-shirts with “undocumented and unafraid” printed on the front, three Mexican illegals, disrupted legislative hearings in North Carolina this Wednesday by yelling at House lawmakers for what they felt were anti-immigration stances. They were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, but proving their t-shirt slogans to be true true, Cynthia Lizabeth Martinez, 21, and Estephania Lizbeth Mijangos-Lopez, 20, were released from jail after the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency determined that they didn’t meet "priority criteria," according to an official statement. The third protester, Uriel Alberto, 24, remains in custody because he has a criminal record

    Three U.S. students have been arrested in Cairo for allegedly throwing firebombs at Egyptian security forces amid ongoing anti-government protests. The Americans attend the American University in Cairo as exchange students. The school, which sits on Tahrir Square, the central protest site, confirmed the students' arrest. National television showed video of the three, identified as Derrik Sweeney, from Georgetown University, Luke Gates, from Indiana University and Greg Porter, from Drexel University. Kevin Sweeney, Derrick's father, told CBS Radio news that his son was being held in a courthouse in Cairo.

    On CNN’s Newsroom this afternoon, anchor Brooke Baldwin observed that at last night’s GOP debate, Rick Perry kept referring to fellow candidate Herman Cain as “brother.” “Did you notice that while you were watching?” Baldwin asked her audience, replaying Perry’s comments. PERRY: “Herman, I love you, brother, but let me tell you something, you don’t need to have a big analysis to figure this thing out…At the end of the week, I’m going to be laying out a plan that clearly — I’ll bump plans with you, brother, and we’ll see who has the best idea about how you get...

    Police from several departments rushed to the Rye Playland amusement park in Westchester County after an altercation broke out between patrons over a tensions over Muslim headscarves. The fight erupted after a "misunderstanding" between the park workers and some Muslim patrons over the park's restrictions on headgear on some rides, according to the Westchester County Executive's Office. Apparently some Muslim women wearing the traditional headscarf, called a hijab, were denied access to some rides because of safety reasons. "The incident erupted when some of the women tried to gain entry on rides that prohibit any kind of headwear, such as...

    Mayor blames 'gangs' for Paris high school night of violence 4 days ago PARIS (AFP) — Paris Mayor Bernard Delanoe blamed "organised gangs" on Saturday for clashes overnight near the Eiffel Tower between police and high school students celebrating the end of their final exams. Twenty-nine people were arrested, and 22 kept in custody, after the unrest in the Champ de Mars park in the well-to-do Seventh District that pitted police firing tear gas against "250 to 300 youths". About a dozen neighbourhood shops were damaged, and two police officers slightly injured, said Alain Gardere, who is in charge of...

    Remember all those dirty hippies who threatened to move to Canada if Bush was re-elected? Guess what, Canada doesn't want them either.... Peace activists Medea Benjamin and Ann Wright have been arrested in the U.S. while protesting the Iraq war, but they never dreamed that would prevent them from entering Canada. The arrests landed Benjamin's and Wright's names in an FBI-run database, the National Crime Information Center, which Canada also relies on to screen visitors. When the two women visited the country in August, they were told they would have to apply for "criminal rehabilitation" and pay $200 if they...
