Gilad Atzmon Needs Your Immediate Support!

I am being sued for libel in the High Court in England by Campaign Against Antisemitsm’s chairman Gideon Falter. I have made the decision to fight this crucial battle for freedom of expression even though this fight poses a real risk of bankrupting me and my family.

I choose to fight their suit because I believe that the CAA and its chairman and its use of libel laws pose a danger to freedom of speech and the future of this country as an open society. Enough is enough!

Mr. Falter has sued me for comments I made on my own website.

My comments were made in the context of expressing my opinion about the situation where, last July, The British Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) attested that there had been no increase in anti-Semitism in Britain, and Gideon Falter and the CAA refused to accept the CPS’s verdict. Falter and the CAA insisted that anti Semitism was on the rise. Sky news reported on the discrepancies between the findings of CPS and the CAA.

Plastic: WHO launches health review

The World Health Organization is to launch a review into the potential risks of plastic in drinking water.

It will assess the latest research into the spread and impact of so-called microplastics - particles that are small enough to be ingested.

It comes after journalism organisation Orb Media found plastic particles in many major brands of bottled water.

There is no evidence that microplastics can undermine human health but the WHO wants to assess the state of knowledge.

Plastic particles found in bottled water
Bruce Gordon, coordinator of the WHO’s global work on water and sanitation, told BBC News that the key question was whether a lifetime of eating or drinking particles of plastic could have an effect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The human body is not engineered to handle the ingestion of plastic in any way, shape, or form.

And IF the processors of these brands of these very expensive brands of drinking water water knew about the reality that microplastics were in it, the corporate CEOS of these companies should be doing hard time in in jail; that SHOULD solve the problem.

New Orleans restaurant announces “white privilege tax” to charge white customers more money for the same food

If you’re ever in New Orleans looking for a bite to eat, you’ll want to avoid a controversial pop-up restaurant known as SAARTJ whose racist black owner has decided that he’s going to make a political statement about “white privilege” by charging all white customers more money than black customers for the exact same food.

Run by local Nigerian chef Tunde Wey, SAARTJ recently announced plans to implement an $18 surcharge on every meal that it sells to white customers, while all of the restaurant’s black customers will get a discounted rate for their meals. It’s all part of Wey’s personal crusade to stick it to the white man in retaliation for what he sees as racial wealth inequality throughout American society.

LAW ENFORCEMENT SOURCE: AUSTIN PACKAGE BOMBS PRESSURE-ACTIVATED, ASSEMBLED ON DOORSTEPS

The bombs, which are reported as being pressure plated, or pressure- activated explosives, are similar in design and function to IEDs used in the Middle East, an Infowars security officer close to the source said.

“Basically the guy doing them has to go to the location, has to then sit there, arm the bomb and then tape it closed. He’s not arming them somewhere and then bringing them.”

“It’s a pressure plate, per se, with a heavy object on top of it,” the Infowars security chief described. “It’s unbalanced so that when you move the box, whatever’s on the plate falls off and that activates the bomb and that makes it go off.”

Democrats’ civil war flares after Lamb’s upset win

***
The 33-year-old Marine veteran personally opposed abortion (while backing abortion rights), described a $15 minimum wage as “high” and ran an ad showing him doing target practice with a machine gun — none of which sit well with the ascendant Democratic base.
***
“He didn’t run on an identity politics, one-size fits all message,” said Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), co-chairman of the Blue Dog PAC, the fundraising arm for the conservative Democratic coalition. “He ran on the Blue Dog message.”

For the Blue Dogs, Lamb’s successful center-left campaign is proof that the Democratic Party’s “big tent” mentality is still a winning electoral strategy>>>

Trump Suggests Withdrawing Troops From South Korea Over Trade Issues

President Trump’s Wednesday fundraiser in Missouri is raising eyebrows in the news, as he suggested to donors that he is considering withdrawing US troops from South Korea if he can’t get a better trade deal out of their government.

Former CIA Officer Exposes Clinton Charity Fraud as Biggest Scandal in US History

Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the reason for all the crime and treason at the FBI and DOJ all boils down to one thing – the Clinton's so-called “charity.”

Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate. She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this is true.... one has at least an explanation for why these crimes have been whitewashed for all these years. It is the interconnection between all these people, at the highest levels of the 1%, which has prevented Hillary from having to account for these actions.

Cedar City middle school locked down after report of person carrying gun nearby

Cedar Middle School was locked down Thursday after a neighbor reported seeing a young person carrying a weapon near the school, Cedar City police said.

Officers responded to the school at 2215 W Royal Hunte Drive after getting the call at 11 a.m., said Sgt. Jerry Womack, Cedar City Police Department spokesman.

The school went into a "soft lockdown" — meaning exterior doors are locked but inside the school is "business as usual" — as police investigated, Womack said.

Police did not locate anyone matching the caller's description. The man told officers he might have overreacted, according to Womack.

The lockdown was lifted after about 30 minutes.

‘Stop pretending you're a feminist’ – White House’s Conway berates Clinton

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told Hillary Clinton to "stop pretending you're a feminist" over her remarks about female Republican voters feeling pressure to vote the same way as their husbands.

Conway lashed out on Thursday during an appearance on the Fox and Friends program. “Let me tell you something, lady,” she said, addressing Clinton. “The idea that I, or other women like me have to ask our husbands how to vote, it’s really a joke. Particularly since — I won’t say her name, but I’ll appeal to you directly — particularly since this country knows who you are, first and foremost, because of who you married.”

“Stop pretending you’re a feminist, you’re for equality, you’re for fairness for women, and then running around accusing us of checking with our husbands and significant others before we vote," she added.

Extremism Has A Hold On California

Last week’s visit to California by Attorney General Jeff Sessions showed just how extreme California’s leadership has become. For the elected officials of California who may have forgotten, the U.S. AG heads the United States Department of Justice and is the chief lawyer for the United States government. It’s kind of a big deal? - rather an important position. Perhaps the holder of said position has earned a modicum of respect.

But that doesn’t really matter to California’s extremist legislators and government officials. Starting with Gov. Jerry Brown and on to Calif. Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de Leon, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Representative Maxine Waters, Representative Adam Schiff and Representative Nancy Pelosi, among others, as evidenced by their words, they believe that all who don’t hold their extreme views, which include subverting rule of law, are fair game for any verbal character assassination and abuse.
