$3 million Fortnite winner—and his parents—become latest swatting targets

Yet another armed police force has been called in on yet another unsuspecting victim, as the recently crowned Fortnite world champion took a break from a livestream to deal with a swatting incident at his own front door.

Kotaku reports that Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf was streaming a Fortnite game late Sunday when he abruptly left his desk and abandoned the game with the livestream still running. The cause? His father coming to tell him that armed police were at the front door.

Fortunately, Bugha returned unharmed to the stream several minutes later. "That was definitely a new one," he can be heard saying on a recording of the stream. "I got swatted."

EXCLUSIVE - Rage of Epstein girl's father: Jeffrey Epstein was ‘evil’, Ghislaine Maxwell must face justice, while Prince Andrew knows the truth... and has to live with it, says dad of Virginia Roberts - the girl in THAT photo

Ghislaine Maxwell must be ‘hunted down’ to face questions over the Jeffrey Epstein ‘sex slave’ scandal, the father of an alleged victim demanded yesterday.

In a blistering interview with the Mail, Sky Roberts repeated his daughter Virginia’s claims that Miss Maxwell groomed the teenager to have sex with Epstein.

His daughter also claims Epstein forced her to have sex with a series of rich and powerful men when she was just 17.

Miss Roberts has claimed in legal documents she was flown to London where she met Prince Andrew and had sex with him in 2001.

A photo of Andrew grinning with his arm around the bare midriff of Miss Roberts when she was a teenager has become the defining image of the scandal.

7 Reasons to Oppose Red Flag Guns Laws

Compromising civil liberties and property rights to prevent acts of violence that have yet to occur are policies more suited for dystopian thrillers?—and police states?—than a free society. -- It’s clear that laws of this magnitude should not be passed as an emotional or political response to an event, even a tragic one.

Mississippi Job Fair draws steady stream of hopeful workers after ICE raid at poultry plant

Who Inflicts the Most Gun Violence in America? The U.S. Government and Its Police Forces

Clearly, the U.S. government is not making America any safer. -- Indeed, the government’s gun violence—inflicted on unarmed individuals by battlefield-trained SWAT teams, militarized police, and bureaucratic government agents trained to shoot first and ask questions later—poses a greater threat to the safety and security of the nation than any mass shooter.

[VIDEO] Trump Tweet Shows The Problems With Red Flag Laws After Chris Cuomo Loses It On Camera

Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!

At the Bank, at Work, and as You Stop for Gas- More Self Defense Gun Stories

Here is the news you don't get from the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they have good habits? What can we learn from their experience?

Schumer Proposes Unconstitutional Infringements on Body Armor Sales

Senator Chuck Schumer (D) New York, has proposed radical new infringements on the Second Amendment. Schumer proposed that body armor be prohibited to citizens, and that body armor sales be metered out by the FBI.-- None of his proposals were in the form of a bill or written proposals. The proposal is blatantly unconstitutional on its face. Body armor is legal to purchase in all 50 states and is in common use. It is clearly a portable arm, even though its use is primarily defensive in nature.

THE LEFT’S EXCLUSIONARY LANGUAGE

A reader points out this article by a liberal in the Atlantic. It is titled “The Left Needs a Language Potent Enough to Counter Trump.” The writer, George Packer, is mostly intent on denouncing President Trump’s “dangerously populist” speech. As usual, the author goes off on Nazi, Hitler, and fascist tropes without acknowledging that the reason why the things Trump says are “populist” is that they make sense to most people, based on their experiences and observations. That part of the article is too foolish and boring to be worthy of comment.

But when the writer moves on to a topic he understands better, the shortcomings of his fellow leftists, he makes some good points–points that are especially noteworthy because they come from inside the leftists’ closed world:

Rudy Giuliani on Jeffrey Epstein’s Mysterious Passing: ‘Absolutely No Excuse for This’

Speaking on Tuesday morning during an interview on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani — and currently a lawyer for President Donald Trump — said that there’s “absolutely no excuse” for what happened, apparently, to financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in his jail cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center (MCC) this past weekend.

“There’s absolutely no excuse for this. What happened [in that jail cell], to me, is mind-boggling,” he said.

2020 candidate Tulsi Gabbard leaves the campaign trail for two weeks to report for active duty as a reservist but vows she WILL be back despite failing to become a Democratic frontrunner

Tulsi Gabbard, who serves in Hawaii's National Guard, is taking two weeks off the campaign trail to participate in a training exercise mission in Indonesia as her presidential bid struggles to gain momentum.

'The experience that I'm having is no different from any other guardsmen or reservist in the country who puts their life aside for a couple of weeks and goes and fulfills that training and that responsibility,' she told reporters of her deployment on Saturday after she spoke at a gun forum here.

Reporter Who Broke Epstein Story: 'He Manipulated His Jailers To Get Off Suicide Watch'

In her first interview since Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell of an apparent suicide Saturday morning, Julie K Brown, the Miami Herald investigative reporter whose reporting led to the latest bevy of criminal charges against the convicted pedophile, told MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle said she believes Epstein manipulated the prison staff to have himself removed from suicide watch and have his roommate removed from his cell...giving him the opportunity to take his own life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Or to fake his death and leave the country.

Clinton Treasury Secretary Larry Summers Rode On Epstein's 'Lolita Express'

Larry Summers has been telling any financial journalist who will listen that the bottom is about to fall out of the economy any minute now...but perhaps he has an ulterior motive for all of his economic doomsaying.

The former Harvard President and Clinton-era Treasury Secretary has been cited four times on the flight logs of Jeffrey Epstein's 'Lolita Express'. During his first trip, he was still working in the Clinton administration. And during his most recent - in 2005 - he and his wife accompanied Epstein to Epstein's private island just days after their wedding.

Report: Epstein's Partner Ghislaine Maxwell Said Island Was 'Completely Wired For Video'

Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam/handler Ghislaine Maxwell reportedly told a friend that Epstein's Island in Little St James was "completely wired for video."

Ghislaine's friend told Vanity Fair she "thought that [Ghislaine] and Epstein were videotaping everyone on the island as an insurance policy, as blackmail."

Shameless, with the case dismissed after his death Epsteins Lawyers blame #Metoo

Shameless, with the case dismissed after his death Epsteins Lawyers blame #Metoo

Marc Fernich who represented El Chapo as well is blaming the #metoo movement for targeting Epstein because he was a wealthy guy. He says this after he is dead and his case is dismissed.

Epstein killed himself allegedly, by tying the prison bed sheet to the top bunker and kneeling towards the floor.

Why was he taken off suicide watch? Because his defense lawyers requested it.

Booker dodges question about Netanyahu’s racism, says he went to Senate to defend Israel

In a response to a recent question inquiring whether or not Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is racist, New Jersey Senator and presidential hopeful Cory Booker said he entered the Senate to stand up for the state of Israel.

Booker was asked about Netanyahu at the Iowa State Fair on August 10 by Jewish Insider’s Ben Jacobs. Booker didn’t answer the question directly and seemingly objected to its premise. His response mainly focused on how he believes the Trump administration has endangered Israel. Booker told Jacobs:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but could Booker possibly be more pig-ignorant about what Trump has already done for Israel?!?

I am thinking, upon reading this, that the short answer is, HELL, NO!!

Everything both Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson wanted, has been delivered; Trump has declared Israel's capital Jerusalem, and completely buckled on any possible, reasonable deal of getting nationhood for Palestine.

Would Booker and his senate colleagues want to declare war against Iran?!? A war for which the US government may well have to conscript, as we don't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money, or the manufacturing to insure that such a campaign be successful, at any level?

Booker may be anxious, as this next Israeli election in September, may well be held under under the cloud of suspicious actions by both Netanyahu and his wife; what the Israeli wants, right now, is a full-blown invasion of Iran, as both a distraction, and putting the country into a favorable state of Netanyahu having actually "done something" here; but that may be more difficult than Booker could ever imagine, even on those days when he is able to think reasonably lucidly.

And there is, again, of course, that 2,000 lb gorilla in the living room, draped, napping, over the Bosendorfer piano; and this is the potential for the military presence of Russia, whose high level diplomat made the statement toward the US that "if Iran is attacked, it will not be alone."

If Iran is attacked, it will not be alone

The article, from the Moscow Times, was in a statement by a very high -ranking Russian Official, Iran “won’t be alone” if the United States decides to launch a military strike on the Islamic republic, a senior Russian diplomat said on Wednesday.

People in his position do not even FART, without the permission of President Putin, so if he made that statement, he was being an echo chamber for his boss, regarding any possible attack against Iran.

U.S. President Donald Trump targeted Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other top Iranian officials with sanctions on Monday. The dramatic step to increase pressure on Iran follows Tehran’s downing of an unmanned American drone last week, which Russia said had violated Iranian airspace. On Tuesday, Trump threatened to obliterate parts of Iran if it attacked "anything American," but later left the door open for talks.

Town near Area 51 warns people to stay away from planned festival

The man behind a proposed raid of Area 51 is now organising a music festival in the town closest to the military base.

The nearest town to Area 51 has warned people to stay away from a music festival being organised by the man behind a call to arms that saw more than two million people sign up to storm the military base.

So many committed to the proposed raid of the complex in Nevada in the hope of seeing aliens that the US air force felt compelled to warn it "stands ready to protect America and its assets", and the Facebook event was eventually shut down after its organiser admitted it was a joke.

Caught between an air blockade and southern suspicion, Yemeni patients are left to die

While the Saudi-led coalition imposes restrictions on Sanaa airport, forces in the south prevent those seeking treatment abroad from leaving through Aden.

Hussein Saeed, 45, has been suffering from liver cancer for the past year and has tried to receive proper treatment in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital currently held by Houthi rebels, without success.

The Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthis imposed restrictions on Sanaa airport on 9 August 2016, and with no commercial flights able to leave or enter, medicines cannot arrive in the city.

Over the past year, Saeed’s health has declined, and although he has been moved between several hospitals in the capital he has failed to receive proper healthcare.

Having heard of dozens of cancer patients dying in Sanaa, Saeed decided his best option would be to leave the country to receive medical treatment in India, where many other patients have received treatment for the disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, my dear readers, THIS is what our US alleged "leadership" has done for Yemen; apparently, it was not enough to be killing innocent children, women, and the medically fragile elderly, whose only "mistake" was being in the utterly wrong place, at the utterly wrong time; now, by not letting life-saving cancer drugs to get to its victims, the US is party to killing its cancer victims.

Hey, President Trump WAY TO GO!!

Killing cancer victims by not allowing medicine to get into the country, to kowtow to Saudi Arabia's grand scheme of killing innocent people because they were ill, WOW!! What an incredible choice!!

Mr. President, in this policy, people with even a modicum of intelligence understand, that you have utterly none, nor do you have any possible degree of compassion, to boot. In fact, you may well be a prototype bot, which is programmed to have companies in this country make as much money as they possibly can from war.

And regarding the 2020 campaign, considering the degree to which you allowed those independent voices in the press who stood up for you in 2016, get thrown under the proverbial bus, I do not understand anyone who would support you, other than those who have been making out like bandits, with magnificent profits soaring, courtesy of your being our country's Merchant of Death in Chief.

This photo shows a US diplomat meeting with Hong Kong protest leaders

Two sides at least to every story. These protests are being organized and funded by the US government as part of their get China policy. What do people expect the Chinese government would do?

A photo published in a Hong Kong newspaper shows a U.S. State Department official meeting with Hong Kong protestors. Find out why this is causing diplomatic tensions.

Hong Kong phooey! Would you like any hypocrisy with that?

Where to start? For nearly 40 weeks hundreds of thousands of French people have been on the streets in anti-government demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron’s rule.

Some have lost eyes and hands in the police response. The public has begun to view the smell of tear gas as a normal part of a weekend in Paris. France is 29 miles from the coast of England. Siri just told me that “Hong Kong is about 5,992 miles from London as the crow flies.”

So complete has been the British media blackout on the Yellow Vests that many believe, wrongly, that there is some British government order banning on any mention of “les événements en France.” The truth is that there is no need for one.

Like a homing pigeon in reverse the entire UK media has flown like a bat out of hell away from France all the way to Hong Kong (as they had earlier flown to Caracas until the big protests turned into the wrong kind of protests).

Missing wages, grueling shifts, and bottles of urine: The disturbing accounts of Amazon delivery drivers may reveal the true human cost of 'free' shipping

Everything in this story is also true for the people who work directly for Amazon's new in-house delivery service.
Too many packages to deliver. Long hours.Peeing in bottles. Access problems. Problems with the scanners and GPS. No time for breaks. Routing problems.A different route every day and a different delivery vehicle every day.Vehicles have been in wrecks,with members of the general public hurt and injured as well as drivers. The lower level management people are by and large good people who try to help,but their hands are tied by upper level management!
The Flex drivers are being phased out. The drivers who work directly for Amazon are treated just as horribly as the DSP drivers.
All so Bezos can make more money,tool around the Med on his yacht while sending pics of his penis to his girlfriend.
In the coming weeks I will expound on Amazon's mistreatment of drivers in more detail!

India Escalates Crackdown on Kashmir for Eid Holiday

Restrictions over the past eight days have been severe enough that a lot of Kashmiris have been all but confined to their homes. Indian forces went to the extent that reporters said the communications blackout meant some Kashmiris didn’t even know what was going on.

Indian forces expected that the Eid al-Adha holiday would lead to large protests in Kashmir, and in trying to prevent such demonstrations, the military imposed even more severe restrictions, including closing the largest mosque in Srinagar.

Muslims, who are the heavy majority of Kashmir, are allowed to go to mosques for the Eid, but only smaller mosques.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am chagrined at how the Indian government can be so bloody politically deaf, dumb, and blind as to what the Kashmiri people are asking for, which is an opportunity to create their own future.

That referendum, promised by Nehru, but never delivered upon by the Indian government, is a really big reason that Kashmiris do not believe that the Indian government doesn't care for them, in any reasonable or supportive way; unfortunately, that assessment has proven itself true, time after time.

Jeffrey Epstein Out in the Open

By Jon Rappoport

NOTE: This article concerns the reporting of Vicky Ward. I’m not automatically assuming her key point is factual, especially since it relies on an unnamed source, who is telling her about a private meeting which the source apparently did not attend. If, however, we assume the key point is accurate…

I realize many people aren’t satisfied unless they see something in print from a more mainstream source. So let’s try the Daily Beast (7/9/19) and writer Vicky Ward, who has had an extensive career as a reporter and editor (Vanity Fair, NY Post, HuffPost, etc.)

In her Daily Beast article, “Jeffrey Epstein’s Sick Story Played Out for Years in Plain Sight,” Ward attempts to shed light on a moment in time when a strange twist occurred in the Epstein saga. It involved Alexander Acosta...
