  • Outed #BlackLivesMatter leader tweets justification for TV shooter

    As we reported this week, members of the left are turning themselves into pretzels trying to explain away why a gay, black man would pick up a gun and shoot two innocent white people on live television. Obviously, it wasn’t ACTUALLY his fault. He was a victim, and the people he killed were “probably” racist anyway (in which case, it was justified). The latest to join this shameful chorus is Shaun King, one of the leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement – who as it turns out has been living his own lie, pretending to be of “mixed race” when in...

    With homosexual and transgender issues always at the forefront, whether we like it or not, it's a relief to know that now your kids will have a gender-fluid option for this coming Halloween: Halloween probably isn’t the best time to deal with an incredibly sensitive subject like gender reassignment. But that hasn’t deterred a major company from conjuring up a Caitlyn Jenner costume in time for Oct. 31. Spirit Halloween, the company behind the pop-up costume stores that appear all over the city every fall, has exclusively confirmed to Confidenti@l that it will be carrying the insensitive getup this year....

    Strange blue lights glowing on the edge of space first appeared over polar regions in 1885 and today, sightings are becoming increasingly common, and now the phenomenon is moving into lower latitudes including Northern California. Like the proverbial canary in the coal mine, these glowing space clouds may be a celestial siren, warning of Earth's global warming, according to some scientists. They're called "noctilucent clouds" or NLCs, basically, clouds that glow at night. They appear mainly in northern latitudes, about 50 miles above earth as miniscule droplets of water reflect the sun on the other side of the globe. Now,...

    Space agency kills off internet rumour by confirming an asteroid strike will not wipe out humanity in the next few weeks, or years, or decades.Good news for those with plans for October and beyond: the Earth will still be in existence. NASA has confirmed – after rumours swept the internet about an imminent asteroid strike expected between 15 and 28 September – that the two-week period in question will be entirely free of Earth-destroying space attacks. The likelihood of any known potentially hazardous asteroid striking the planet within the next 100 years stands at 0.01%, the space agency said in...

These species are not alien, and our earth, only more advanced. They live here for billions of years, and far ahead of us in development. The CIA stores data tracking systems and deep-sea sonar, but they have the status of state secrets, and even the scientists do not have access to this data about these objects.

The event, called #BlackFair by the organizers, starts at 11 a.m. Aug. 29 in Hamline Park in St. Paul. The protesters will proceed up Snelling Avenue to the fairgrounds in Falcon Heights. The intent is to disrupt the State Fair on its first weekend, Black Lives Matter organizer Rashad Turner said. "The first Saturday of the Fair is one of their money-making days. We just hope to slow that down and continue to bring attention to the injustices that plague...

Local authorities in Poland’s southwestern district of Walbrzych said they had been contacted by a law firm representing a Pole and a German who said they had located the train and were seeking 10 percent of the value of the findings. “Lawyers, the army, the police and the fire brigade are dealing with this,” Marika Tokarska, an...

    Sometimes when things get so bad, a new sector of society steps up to the plate to fill a courage and sanity vacuum. Such is the case with the Sun Girls Battallion, an all-female fighting force with the battle cry of: "You Rape Us, We Kill You." But as unlikely as an all female unit is in the Muslim-dominated Middle East, what's more unusual about this group is that its female founder is the famous Yazidi singer Xate Shingali who has recruited more than 100 gals, as young as age 17, willing to fight to the death if necessary, since...

The woman, Carol Sullivan, calls herself “Sunshine” and describes herself as a “militant non-compliant Negro.” She aligns herself with views that Nation of Islam leader, Malcom X espoused. When asked by a reporter outside the jail if she agreed with Malcolm X that white people should be killed, Sullivan said, “You’re damn right I do. You think I’m scared to say that to you? Yes, you do...

We arent in a seasonal gas blend change time period either.

  • The Dodo’s Posthumous Message to Mankind

    In 1681, the last dodo bird on the planet breathed its last breath. But that was not the final chapter of the bird’s story. Some 300 years later, botanists on Mauritius—the island where the dodo had lived—noticed that a certain species of tree was rapidly dying off. Tambalacoque trees had historically grown in abundance on Mauritius, but by the 1970s only 13 remained. And all of those remaining were thought to be around 300 years old. Even though they were producing fruit containing seeds each year, none of the seeds were sprouting into saplings. This meant that no new Tambalacoque...

From there it was up to anyone who found it to help Hitchbot along. A gps inside the...

    The idea of a "nuclear family"—white picket fence, a kid or two, friendly golden retriever—has been under siege for a while now. No longer do stories of step-parents or half-siblings shock us, and children being raised by parents of the same gender (so-called "pink families") are becoming increasingly common. Another new, lesser known family structure that has emerged is that of multi-parenting—or raising a child with more than two legal parents. For instance, a lesbian couple and a gay couple bringing up a child together as a single family, but in separate households. That's more or less the family unit...

Officials with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unveiled the photos at a news conference in Salt Lake City.

They are now under investigation for Internet fraud, which seems to be illegal even when committed against the most fearsome terrorist army in modern times. The scam seems to be a combination of the Nigerian Prince con, in which a mark is fooled into giving the con artist large sums of money and catfishing, in which the mark strikes up an online romance with someone he thinks is an attractive woman (or man depending on the gender and preference of the mark.)

    On June 23, 2014 35 members of Congress sent a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, urging him to release lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) illegals. Due to significantly higher sexual assault rates among this population in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, ICE established a working group to develop recommendations to address this very real and serious issue. However, Congress is pressuring DHS to release these individuals before the working group’s recommendations have been reviewed. The members stated in their letter that, “…detention should almost never be used for vulnerable groups such as LGBT immigrants.” It is unclear...

He was horrified to discover he had been bitten by an adder - the only native venomous snake in the UK. The fall was witnessed by his...

    n one of the most ridiculous photo-ops of his career Obama visited a federal prison on Thursday. This is part of his legacy push to release as many scumbags back on to the streets as possible, or as he calls it “justice reform.” During an otherwise uneventful waste of time and money a funny thing happened: the President of the United States admitted that he used to be a drug dealer or possibly drug trafficker. It’s hard not to feel the patriotic pride. Obama’s visit to the El Reno minimum-security prison in Oklahoma was as bullsh*t as it gets. ABC...

But Hsieh chooses to live in a Las Vegas trailer park he owns, according to a recent profile in The New York Times.

Hsieh lives in a trailer in the community he calls "Llamapolis" with his pet alpaca. The trailer park is part of Hsieh's $350 million investment into making Las Vegas a metropolitan...

    “SHOOT REPUBLICANS” Says Former Carter Staffer July 17, 2015 by Michael Strickland “Republicans and conservatives are the enemy. They are expendable.

Shoot Republicans“, centers around animal rights and how “active Republican and conservatives voters are enabling the Animal Holocaust” and “If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment.”His article ends with: I mention Republicans and conservatives,...

    How's this for proof hidden in plain sight? We received an email from Islamic scholar IQ al Rassooli containing a sequence of 10 photos which we converted into a video. It is brilliant. You can never "un-see" the two pictures at the end. Muslims have a hand sign that silently communicates the Shadaha, meaning, "The only god is Allah and Mohammed his prophet." The index finger is extended vertically to symbolize "one god." It is chilling watching the photos in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZOkuIdkBXg You can bet that 100% of the Muslims of the world viewing these photos of Obama know...

    Last December when there were mass protests about the Smith/Garner cases a group of employees at York College (part of the public owned CUNY) in Jamaica, Queens, left their work stations and went outside to lay down in the street to protest the verdicts. It was staged of course but still these these workers could have been injured, bringing law suits against the city. Now I don't fault anyone for protesting what they think is wrong but on WORK HOURS? These are CITY OF NEW YORK employees. Your tax dollars payed for this time they were not at work. York...
