  • DNA Links Living Man to Skull Pillaged by Germans 100 Years Ago

    Scientists in Germany and Rwanda have genetically linked a 100-year-old skull to a male living today. The deceased individual was a high-ranking advisor to Mangi Meli, the king of the Chagga people in the late-1800s who was executed by the German colonial government in 1900 after leading an uprising. The scientists also identified living “likely descendants” of two other skulls. At the beginning of the 20th century, the invading German empire took thousands of skulls from its colonies for since-discredited research into racial classification. In 2011, Berlin's Museums Authority (SPK) acquired about 7,700 skulls in poor condition from the Charité...
  • Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band Guitarist Steven Van Zandt Deletes Call to ‘Exterminate’ GOP ‘Cockroaches’

    04/10/2023 6:26:28 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 103 replies
    Bruce Springsteen’s veteran E-Street band guitarist Steven Van Zandt issued a call to fans and supporters on social media Sunday to “Exterminate the (Republican) cockroaches.” His rallying cry to target GOP supporters, half of America, came during an expletive-laden exchange on Twitter. It began when the guitarist ventured forth by abusing what he called “Republican White Supremicist scumbag cowards and pussies that need guns to feel like real men” after TN representatives demanded gun controls. Van Zandt was then called out on Twitter by a follower for his abuse, which he quickly resumed.

    FNC's Tucker Carlson warned that MSNBC is starting to sound like the radical racialist radio stations that instigated the Rwanda genocide: TUCKER CARLSON: In July of 1993, a radio station in Kigali, Rwanda, began openly attacking one of the country's main ethnic groups, the Tutsis. The radio station was called RTLM, but many remember it as simply Hutu Radio because its audience was primarily Hutu. According to Hutu radio, Tutsi people were responsible for virtually every bad thing that ever happened in Rwanda. Tutsis had way too much money. They had way too much power. Tutsis were way too privileged....

    A last-minute legal battle is under way over the UK government's first flight transporting asylum seekers to Rwanda. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) says it has blocked the removal of one of seven passengers due to depart on Tuesday night. An out-of-hours judge is currently examining the remaining half dozen cases and there are fears in the Home Office the flight may not depart. It is not clear how the Home Office will respond to the ECHR injunction. In a statement hours before the flight's planned departure, the ECHR said it had granted an "urgent interim measure" in...

    The Prince of Wales has privately described the government’s policy to send migrants to Rwanda as “appalling”, The Times has been told. Prince Charles is said to be particularly frustrated at Boris Johnson’s asylum policy as he is due to represent the Queen at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, this month. Migrants who arrive in Britain illegally face being deported to Rwanda, more than 4,000 miles away, under a deal struck by Priti Patel, the home secretary, in April. Today Patel overcame an initial legal challenge to the policy after a High Court...

    On Thursday, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the British government will begin sending migrants who illegally enter to Rwanda in an effort to stop illegal immigration. According to The New York Times, the new policy will apply to anyone who entered the UK illegally since Jan. 1.

    The Archbishop of Canterbury will use his Easter sermon to criticise the Prime Minister and his Cabinet colleagues after Mr Johnson unveiled fresh plans to stop Channel crossing migrants arriving from in the UK. A record-breaking 28,395 migrants reached British shores in 2021 after making the perilous 21-mile journey from Calais. "We can't ask the British taxpayer to write a blank cheque to cover the costs of anyone who might want to come and live here." The Government's plan will see illegal immigrants, including those who have crossed the Channel in small boats, travel 6,000 miles to east Africa. However,...

    Some asylum seekers who arrive in the UK on small boats across the Channel will be given a one-way ticket to Rwanda, under new government plans. Home Secretary Priti Patel is in the African nation to sign a deal for a £120m trial involving mostly single men arriving in Britain via crossings. BBC home editor Mark Easton said ministers face significant legal hurdles and substantial costs. Refugee organisations have criticised the plans as cruel and urged a rethink. Labour said the plan was "unworkable, unethical and extortionate" - the Lib Dems said it would be expensive and ineffective. Precise details...

    Rwanda has been recognized by the World Health Organization as being among the countries to fully vaccinate at least 40% of their populations against COVID-19 by the end of 2021. Currently, more than 49% of almost 13 million Rwandans have been double-jabbed, and more than 61% have had at least one vaccine administered. But some Rwandans say this number is only possible because of force by local leaders and police. DW spoke to some people who said they had been forced to received vaccinations. For fear of possible consequences, they either chose to remain anonymous or DW decided to leave...

    Lake Kivu contains about 300 billion m3 of carbon dioxide and 60 billion m3 of methane gas, giving it the capacity to produce between 120 million and 250 million m3 of methane gas annually. Now, you probably understand why panic and fear has gripped communities in Rwanda and Congo after the sudden and deadly eruption of Nyiragongo volcano on Saturday, which is situated just 20-25 miles away… The likelihood of flow of extremely hot magma into the waters of Lake Kivu and the resulting seismic unrest are feared to potentially cause a deadly explosion. Rwanda’s Lake Kivu is indeed one...

    The eruption of the Mount Nyiragongo volcano in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo seems to have subsided late Saturday, according to the Goma Volcano Observatory, which monitors the volcano.

Volcanologist Honore Chiraba from the Goma Volcano Observatory told CNN there are two fractures in the volcano. Chiraba is following the volcanic activity closely with the governor of North Kivu, the province where the city of Goma is located. A post on the verified...

    Mount Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo started erupting at around 17:15 UTC on May 22, 2021, producing high lava fountains and lava flows that forced nearby residents to evacuate in panic.

Red glow filled the sky above the city, sending panicked residents fleeing, Reuters reported. Volcanologist Dario Tedesco said Goma does not appear to be at risk because lava is flowing east in the direction of the Rwandan border. According to Reuters, Tedesco earlier...

    When Denmark became the first European country last month to revoke residence status for more than 200 Syrian refugees, it faced condemnation from EU lawmakers, the UN refugee agency and human rights groups. Authorities in Copenhagen argue that parts of Syria are now safe enough for refugees to return. But the issue has proved divisive and activists and community groups have planned protests in several cities on Wednesday in support of the refugees. For a country with a liberal reputation, Denmark has become known for repeatedly tightening its immigration policies in recent years. In a separate move, it recently signed...

    Former Neo-Nazi recruiter Frank Meeink says that Fox News has radicalized millions of Americans towards right-wing extremism, comparing the rhetoric on the cable news network to the language and propaganda that aired during the Rwandan civil war and genocide in the 1990s. “Fox News has completely radicalized so many Americans,” Meeink told CNN’s Pamela Brown on Saturday. “If you look at Fox News and then you compare that to hate radio from Rwanda, and what started that civil war, there’s comparisons there. We have to know that a lot of our fellow Americans, our fellow children of God, have been...
