Condi Rice Destroys Liberals With a History Lesson About Slavery

After what happened in Charlottesville, the topic is especially timely, which is why Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade immediately asked her an important question: “I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our Constitution. As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this Constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we start taking their statues down and say, we’re embarrassed by you?”

Without hesitation, Rice fired back: “In a word, No.” She continued, “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you.’ So I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names, and realize what they did, and be able to tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history.”

Then, she added, “When you start wiping out your history; sanitizing your history to make you feel better? It’s a bad thing.”

Government forces, led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured more points north of the Sunbul gas station in the Ayn Tarma area in eastern Damascus. The advance came amid intense shelling of Faylaq al-Rahman positions in Ayn Tarma and Jobar conducted by the SAA 4th Armoured Division with “Volcano” and “Golan” heavy rockets.

Faylaq al-Rahman claimed that its members killed 17 SAA troops and damaged an SAA T-72AV battle tank in the recent clashes and once again accused the government forces of using chlorine gas in the area.

The chemical weapons usage accusations are a common part of PR strategy of any anti-government forces around Syria. The accusations have become especially frequent after the US missile strike on the Syrian Air Force’s Shayrat Air Base that followed the incident at Khan Shaykhun.

Who Keeps Americans in the Dark?

Earlier this week, senior Tablet magazine writer Yair Rosenberg pointed out in a Washington Post article that the White nationalists who gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia targeted the Jews.

“ They (the White Nationalists) immediately went after the Jews,” Rosenberg writes. They “chanted anti-Semitic and Nazi slogans, including “blood and soil” and “Jews will not replace us” — all crafted to cast Jews as foreign interlopers who need to be expunged. The attendees proudly displayed giant swastikas and wore shirts emblazoned with quotes from Adolf Hitler. One banner read, “Jews are Satan’s children.”

This is an important and genuine observation by Rosenberg. He suggests that the white nationalists are fully aware that that they are in a battle with ‘the Jews.’ The Jews also seem to acknowledge that they are at war with the White Nationalists and that this broad category includes the American President* who according to the Jewish press took side with the ‘Nazis’.

Chaos in Charlottesville: No One Gave Peace a Chance, Including the Police

Let’s be clear about one thing: no one—not the armed, violent, militant protesters nor the police—gave peace a chance during the August 12 demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va.

What should have been an exercise in free speech quickly became a brawl.

It’s not about who threw the first punch or the first smoke bomb.

It’s not about which faction outshouted the other, or which side perpetrated more violence, or even which group can claim to be the greater victim.

One young woman is dead because of the hate, violence, intolerance, racism and partisanship that is tearing this country apart, and it has to stop.

Racist Quote by Abe Lincoln (Happy Black History Month!)

Abraham Lincoln Quote

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”

Russia’s FSB Says It Foiled Moscow Terror Plot

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said on Monday it had detained four people suspected of plotting terror attacks on Moscow’s public transport system and major commercial centers.

In a statement on its website, the FSB said it had uncovered a terror group in the Moscow region which was planning to commit "a series of terror attacks in crowded places, including transport sites and large commercial centers.”

North Korea gives US a clear choice: Restraint or missile launches

US President Donald Trump implied in one of his latest tweets that he forced North Korea to back down over its threat to Guam. It's a dangerous misperception that could cause the crisis to escalate and Trump to miss what could be the best chance he will have to halt the tests of missiles that can now threaten the American homeland.

Anxious about annual US-South Korea military exercises that begin next week, Pyongyang has presented the United States with a clear, coercive choice: reduce tensions or face a highly destabilizing missile strike to the waters around Guam.

US War Games Likely to Trigger Another North Korea Missile Test - Seoul

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula appeared to ease up following intense saber-rattling by the US and North Korean sides last week, but once Pyongyang’s leaders observe the US ramping up war games again, another ballistic missile test may be imminent, Seoul warns.

Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills are slated to commence on Monday, Korean media reported Wednesday. "There is a great possibility that North Korea will carry out strategic or tactical provocations to protest the latest UN sanctions and the UFG exercises," the South Korean Defense Ministry said in a statement to the nation’s lawmakers.

Military exercises in which US forces essentially rehearse and practice attacking the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) "are not funny to [North] Korea," Radio Sputnik Loud & Clear host Brian Becker said Tuesday.

The West Supplied Chemical Weapons to Syrian Rebels, Says Russian Foreign Ministry

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday there is evidence that the West is supplying chemical weapons to militants in Syria.

“Yes, it’s true,” she told the state-funded Vesti FM radio station on Thursday morning. "Western countries and regional powers are directly and indirectly supplying militants, terrorists and extremists in Syria with banned toxic substances.”

The comment came after Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said on Wednesday that chemical weapons supposedly produced by the United States and Britain had been found in areas previously held by Islamic State.*

President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced the removal of monuments to Confederate figures as "sad" and "so foolish," days after white supremacists and neo-Nazis took to Charlottesville, Virginia, to violently protest the planned removal of a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments," Trump said in a series of tweets. "You can't change history, but you can learn from it."

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say

The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.

One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.

The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking/listening at the reports of this incident, President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment; both the Neo-Nazis and Antifa bore responsibility for the deaths and injuries here.

The FDA informed the manufacturer of Impossible Burger – a meat-like burger made using only plants – that it had not yet proven that the product’s key genetically modified (GM) ingredient is safe for consumption. The company, Impossible Foods, decided it knew better and launched the product anyway. [1}

The GMO faux-meat burgers are available at 43 restaurants nationwide, including several burger chains.

Impossible Foods maintains that its SLH/heme is identical to the SLH already in the food supply, but Impossible Foods had no safety testing data to support that claim, said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union.

Hansen explained:

“You are taking something that has never been in the food supply before and you come to the FDA, say it is GRAS, and you have no safety data, particularly from feeding studies. Their argument has literally come down to saying this is exactly identical to the heme we’ve always been eating, but it’s not true.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great to know that we have an FDA which doesn't mandate food product safety before a product is introduced to an unsuspecting public!!

Why is there no halt in production of this product, until safety testing is truly finished?!?

Report: ‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Jason Kessler Was Obama Supporter Involved With Occupy Movement

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city,Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Kessler himself has placed his “red-pilling” around December of 2013 when a PR executive was publicly excoriated for a tasteless Twitter joke about AIDS in Africa.

Regarding the incident, Kessler stated “… so it was just a little race joke, nothing that big of a deal, she didn’t have that many followers, she probably didn’t think anybody was gonna see it,”

As Leak Probes Abound, Tillerson Promotes Diplomat Who Passed Classified Info To AIPAC: The promotion of David Satterfield comes as the Trump administration cracks down on leakers elsewhere in the government.

As the Trump administration widens its crackdown on unauthorized leaks to the press, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has promoted a diplomat who provided classified information to an influential pro-Israel lobbying organization that resulted in espionage charges.

David Satterfield, a long time Middle East hand with extensive experience in the region, has been named acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, a State Department official told BuzzFeed News.

In 2005, federal prosecutors said Satterfield provided classified national security secrets to a top lobbyist for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful special interest group known simply as AIPAC. The accusation was included in an indictment that charged two former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, and a former Pentagon official, Lawrence Franklin, under the Espionage Act with illegally trafficking in classified information.

Former Mrs. America convicted of stealing $5,500 from Macy’s in Minnesota

A former Mrs. America was convicted Tuesday in Hennepin County District Court of stealing $5,500 from Macy’s by switching the price tags on clothes she returned.

A jury found Jennifer Kline, 51, of Wayzata, guilty of one count of theft by swindle after a seven-day trial. She is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 18.

In November 2015, Kline spent nearly $5,800 on clothing at the Southdale Macy’s in Edina, paying for her purchases with a credit card, according to the criminal complaint.

Kline removed the tags from the items and attached them to clothing she already owned, before “returning” the items to the Macy’s in the Mall of America and receiving a $5,501 refund on her credit card, the charges said.

FBI Admits Federal Informants Linked to Deadly Charlottesville Riots; Unlikely To Face Charges

FBI insiders said it is unlikely leaders of the radical groups that clashed in demonstrations turned deadly in Charlottesville, VA will face prosecution.


FBI said they have already identified several federal informants who participated in the mob-like riots over the weekend in Virginia. The FBI is also now working those sources to piece together the events from Charlottesville, sources said.

But FBI agents have deemed the newly-minted investigation dicey, having to navigate separate agreements with embedded intelligence assets while trying to pinpoint responsibility for the violence.

Late Saturday, the Justice Department announced the federal probe. The investigation, spearheaded by the Richmond, VA FBI field office, was launched after an Ohio man drove his car through a crowd of demonstrators killing one woman and injuring dozens.

Webmaster's Commentary:

IF, in fact, paid FBI agents were actually here, what was their function, other than intel?!?

Iran building missile plant in Syria, protected by Russian air defense - Israeli media

Israeli Television has reported that in the north-west of Syria, Iranians are building a plant to produce short-range ballistic missiles. Satellite photos were shown to confirm this information. According to the source, the plant is being built in the seaside town of Banias, a few dozen kilometers north of the port of Tartus, where the Russian naval base is located, and slightly south of the Khmeimim air base, where Russian military aircraft are deployed to ensure the safety of which air defense systems are deployed S-300 and S-400. Thus, the plant under construction is potentially protected from Israeli air strikes by Russian air defense means. The conclusion that it is the construction of a missile plant is based on an expert assessment of images from Syria and Iran. According to them, a plant is being built for the production of Fateh 110 rockets, the range of which is about 300 km. Obviously, these missiles can be designed for both the army of Bashar Assad and his allies in Syria.

Air Force Chief: Israel Has Attacked Syrian Arms Convoys Nearly 100 Times in 5 Years

And that's just attacks on convoys, ostensibly of Hezbollah, not counting the attacks on Syrian army fixed positions near the occupied Golan. Providing the most specific details yet on Israel’s ongoing series of military strikes inside war-torn Syria, Air Force Chief Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel revealed today that Israel has carried out nearly 100 distinct military actions over the last five years specifically related to what they believed were Hezbollah-bound arms convoys. This comes less than a month after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was caught on an open microphone admitting to “dozens” of strikes in Syria, though obviously this is far greater, because many Israel strikes on Syria clearly were not Hezbollah related. Indeed, recently reported Israeli strikes in Syria have almost always been the result of stray artillery shells landing in empty territory inside the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and Israel responding by attacking Syrian military bases in the area.

German people are interested in building normal relations with Russia, former German Chancellor, member of the German Social Democratic Party Gerhard Schroeder said in an interview with the Swiss newspaper Blick published on Thursday. According to the politician, the debate on Crimea’s status will end in nothing and should not be linked to other issues. Schroeder supported leader of Germany’s Free Democratic Party Christian Lindner who called for seeing Crimea’s status as "a long-term temporary phenomenon." "The chairman of the Free Democratic Party turned out to be more sharp-eyed that those who believe that demonizing Russia will help them in their election race. The German people needs normal relations with Russia, and Lindner realized that," Schroeder said. "Nothing will change in the Crimean issue, while the remaining issues should be tackled separately.

According to the US Treasury, Russia held $102.9 billion on the balance sheet of the US debt, which was almost six billion less than in May. Thus, Russia went down to the 14th position among the holders of US debt securities. At the same time, China has increased the amount of funds placed in US government bonds. China has acquired US securities worth 44.3 billion dollars, having thus topped the list... "It is Chinese businesses that ask for US securities. National interest and interest of big business are two different things. In this case, it goes about the wish of Chinese entrepreneurs to keep their money in major countries. This applies to Chinese capital too. China, compared with other peripheral countries, holds the largest amount of foreign exchange reserves, and this has made China take the first place on the list"...

Russians start drinking less

A recent research has revealed a declining level of alcohol consumption in Russia. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said that they do not drink alcohol, whereas 59 percent admitted that they drink from time to time, but not more than several times a month, a research conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Centrer (WCIOM) said. Sixteen percent of the polled said that they consume alcoholic beverages two or three times a month (23 percent among men and 11 percent among women). The share of those having alcohol drinks two-three times a month is the largest among 25-34-year-olds and 35-44-year-olds. Four percent of respondents said that they started drinking more, whereas 44 percent admitted to the opposite. Eighty percent of Russians are convinced of the negative impact of all types of alcohol. Only 15% of respondents believe in the existence of harmless alcohol. In their opinion, the consumption of wine, beer and cognac does not harm the human body.

North Korean missile technologies originate from Ukraine, Russian pranksters find out: Ukrainians can be more dangerous than Koreans

On August 16, well-known telephone pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, also known as Vovan and Lexus, contacted Yuzhmash CEO Sergey Voit, supposedly on behalf of Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine Alexander Turchynov. Voit told "Turchynov" that Yuzhmash had been working with North Korea for many years, while Yuzhnoye design bureau had been maintaining contacts with North Korean engineers for 14 years already: "We have just started doing little things with Korea. Yuzhnoye Design Bureau has been working with Korea for more than 14 years, with China - for over 20 years. What do they do there? I don't know. We do not receive this information - security services do," the official said in a conversation with the pranksters. It appears that American masters of Poroshenko and Turchynov will not be happy about the new information. One may only wonder what consequences the Ukrainian authorities will have to deal with in the near future...

Tensions on Korean Peninsula receding, Chinese official says

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been receding, Chinese official said. "Thanks to the efforts taken by various parties, there are signs of easing tensions on the Korean Peninsula, but the August crisis has not been overcome yet," Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a telephone conversation with German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel.

At the same time, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said that any decision on the use of armed forces against the DPRK should be made with the direct participation of Seoul.

Flashback: The Ku Klux Klan opens its door to Jews, homosexuals and black people in bizarre recruitment drive

It's a white supremacist organisation notorious for homophobic and racist violence, including the lynchings of black people.

But the Ku Klux Klan is now looking to diversify and increase its membership to include Jews, black people, homosexuals and those of Hispanic origin with a re-branding as 'the new Klan'.

All those wanting to join the extreme right-wing group will still have to wear the white robes, masks and conical hats and take part in rituals, according to founder John Abarr.

The rebranded organisation, called the Rocky Mountain Knights, claims to now stand for 'a strong America' rather than irrational hatred.

Are these the racist white supremacists the corporate media is currently squealing about?

In an exclusive report published Friday, Variety details the claims of over two dozen Ku Klux Klan members about the abruptly cancelled A&E documentary series "Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America." According to Klansmen, the production company This Is Just a Test that created the docu-series paid them "hundreds of dollars in cash each" to fabricate "significant" portions of the show and "distort the facts of their lives to fit the documentary’s predetermined narrative: tension between Klan members and relatives of theirs who wanted to get out of the Klan."

CNN flashback: A kinder, gentler Ku Klux Klan? 'We do not hate anyone,' imperial wizard says

"We're not racists," Chambers told CNN Monday. "We just want to be with white people. If that's a crime, then I don't know. It's all right to be black and Latino and proud, but you can't be white and proud. I don't understand it."

Harley Hanson, who filed the application to adopt the highway for the International Keystone Knights Realm of Georgia, concurred: “I love my race. Does that make me wrong? I’m proud to be white,” he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Today, when speaking to leaders of the Klan, you won't hear racial epithets or a denunciation of any ethnic groups.

"We do not hate anyone,” said Frank Ancona, the imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. “The true Ku Klux Klan is an organization that is looking out for the interests of the white race. It is a fraternal organization, and we do good works.”

Flashback: Media, Twitter Freak Out About Probably Fake KKK Trump Backers

In the midst of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s huge win in the Nevada caucuses, several people on Twitter and some media outlets reported Trump’s candidacy turned out avowed supporters of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). But even a quick look at the evidence suggests the mysterious “KKK” support was actually an anti-Trump stunt which may have even been carried out by black men.

During Tuesday night’s caucuses, pictures surfaced on Twitter of two men in the KKK’s hooded white garb carrying pro-Trump signs outside of Cimarron-Memorial High School in Las Vegas, which was a caucus location. Instead of going inside for the caucus, the two figures apparently demonstrated outside until they left at the request of a police officer.

Oopss! HBO Itself Accidentally Leaked 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Episode 6

10 minutes of silence storms iTunes charts thanks to awful Apple UI

The smash-hit, "A a a a Very Good Song" by New York-based reporter Samir Mezrahi, is in fact a rather clever trick to get around one of the more annoying bugs in the way iTunes syncs up with cars via Bluetooth. Drivers and passengers have found that once an iPhone is paired with and connects to the car's entertainment system, it will play songs automatically, usually the first alphabetical title in the handset's library.

To counter that, Mezrahi created and published an audio file that consisted entirely of ten minutes of silence and then gave it the "A a a a" title so it will automatically become the first song in most libraries. Thus, when someone gets into their car and the phone connects to the dashboard and begins automatically playing music, you get silence and about ten minutes to turn it off or pick whatever track you really want.

NotPetya ransomware attack cost us $300m – shipping giant Maersk

"In the last week of the quarter we were hit by a cyber-attack, which mainly impacted Maersk Line, APM Terminals and Damco," CEO Soren Skou said in a statement today.

"Business volumes were negatively affected for a couple of weeks in July and as a consequence, our Q3 results will be impacted. We expect that the cyber-attack will impact results negatively by USD 200-300m."

Admittedly Maersk is massive – it's responsible for around 15 per cent of the world's entire shipping network – but that kind of financial damage is close to a record for such an attack. Then again, the company's entire network was down for days, Skou told the Financial Times.
