    To @realdonaldtrump Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform. We are...
  • ‘Fun’ anti-Semitic displays in Europe should shock Jews everywhere

    NY Post ^ | Mar 2020 | Benny Avni
    All of a sudden nostalgia for 1930s Germany resurges across Europe, where some dismiss it as “just fun.” Carnival marchers in the Belgian town of Aalst last week were dressed up as Jewish caricatures, as if lifted from the pages of the crude Nazi-era weekly Der Sturmer. They had long, crooked noses, Hasidic hats, rat tails — the works. Men clad in SS uniforms marched alongside, drinking beer and joking with the cheering crowds. The grotesque display, which appeared in Aalst’s annual three-day carnival last year for the first time and repeated again last week, was described to the BBC...

    Oil pared losses and world stocks seesawed on Monday as cost-cutting plans by General Motors and economic data offset fears that a flu outbreak could spread into a pandemic and further strain a global recession. Investors who reckoned markets would fall on fears that the flu outbreak in Mexico could spread worldwide with dire consequences were forced to reverse their bets and buy stocks.

    ... Mrs. Pelosi took the impeachment reins away from Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and handed them to Mr. Schiff, who has been running secret hearings as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee. Witnesses testify behind closed doors, and Democrats selectively leak the testimony or evidence to the pro-impeachment press in ways that are often distorted or incomplete. Republicans then offer a competing narrative, and the public is left to wonder what’s true. All of this is supposedly in service to the serious purpose of removing a President elected by 63 million Americans. Mr. Schiff was challenged on his secrecy on Sunday...

    The Butte County Sheriff's Office has released body cam footage from a deputy in Paradise the morning the Camp Fire broke out. Deputy Aaron Parmley was driving on Pentz Road in Paradise, attempting to locate four nurses from the Feather River Hospital who needed help evacuating. His car became disabled, forcing him to get out and continue on foot. He activated his body-worn camera in hopes of capturing what he thought were going to be the last moments of his life.

    A British newspaper is reporting lecturers at a university have been told not to use capital letters in assignments because it might frighten students into failure. The Express detailed a memo it obtained that was sent out to Leeds Trinity's School of Journalism staff. The staff was told to "write in a helpful, warm tone, avoiding officious language and negative instructions," according to The Express. The Express says course leaders told them capitalizing specific letters could emphasize the difficulty or importance of an assignment. In a memo the newspaper obtained, it says, "Despite our best attempts to explain assessment tasks,...
  • Attack of the Clones: Creature That Started as Pet Now Multiplying Out of Control

    Most species of crayfish reproduce the same way that humans do: by having sex. But one species of crayfish that evolved out of the pet trade can do something unique—clone itself—and this ability has led populations of the crustacean to spawn out of control. For a study published today in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution , researchers sequenced the genomes of 11 marbled crayfish, both from the wild and from the pet trade. They found that the genomes in all 11 animals were nearly identical, meaning that they don’t reproduce sexually, and that they are officially a different species...

    (NATIONAL) -- You say you like scary movies? Then grab your pants and get ready to dance because this one just might give you a heart attack and hardening of the arteries at the same time. There’s a scary new horror flick on the horizon and it’s generating huge buzz off its debut at a film festival. The British newspaper The Independent says it’s, “unanimously touted as the scariest (movie) in years following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.” It’s called Hereditary and it’s a new entry from the same folks (distribution company called A24) that brought you ‘The...

    In the first excerpts from Hillary Clinton's highly anticipated upcoming memoir, the former Democratic presidential candidate said her "skin crawled" during a debate with Donald Trump. In audio clips of Clinton reading from the book, "What Happened," which were first obtained by MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday, Clinton recounted her thoughts as she toyed with the idea of telling her Republican rival to "back up, you creep" as he stood behind her during the second presidential debate. "My skin crawled," Clinton said. "It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching 'well,...

    The dangerous power of vicious fake news was clearly demonstrated Sunday when a gunman walked into a Washington, D.C., restaurant that has been the target of a phony pedophilia conspiracy theory and fired an assault weapon. Saner elements of our society cannot allow this kind of activity to flourish. In the run-up to the presidential election, some right-wingers with no evidence or facts propagated a loony theory that top Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager, operated a child sex ring out of Washington’s Comet Ping Pong restaurant. The alt-right echo chamber rushed the falsehood to hundreds of thousands...

    Don't want to sound cynical. Just wondering: What happens? What will Trump supporters do? What will House Republicans do (yawn)? What will Texas do? Will we just whine and bellyache as usual? Do conservative sites get shut down? Does American citizenship lose any meaning? Does the Constitution get trampled? Does the US turn into Venezuela? How are people preparing? How are you preparing? Just wondering.

    This is the terrifying collection of nearly 500 guns and 200,000 rounds of ammunition which was seized from a parish council chairman who collected firearms 'like stamps'. Police revealed the full extent of their discovery at the home of crane operator James Arnold in Wyverstone, Suffolk. It is the biggest arsenal of illegal weapons ever found in the UK. Three months after the discovery and the 49-year-old's arrest in April 2014, Arnold died of pancreatic cancer, meaning he could never face prosecution. But as firearms dealer Anthony Buckland, 65, was jailed for at Norwich Crown Court for supplying some of...

    President Barack Obama complained that Fox News made him “look scary” during his first run for president, and suggested that his race was part of the network’s attempt to slant the presidential election. Obama made his remarks during a conversation with author Marilynne Robinson which was published by The New York Review. While discussing a book she wrote about Iowa, Obama recalled his own experiences with the people there as he was running for president. “I wasn’t viewed through this prism of Fox News and conservative media, and making me scary,” he said, adding that it was easy for him...
