A children's T-shirt with 'Daddy's Little Sl*t' printed on the front was being sold on Amazon by the third-party retailer Onlybabycare
The product description claimed the $18 top was 'suitable' for various occasions, including baby showers, birthday parties, and baptisms
Journalist Yashar Ali drew attention to the horrific clothing item by sharing a screenshot of the children's shirt on Twitter on Thursday
People were outraged and quick to share their disgust with Amazon
Although the controversial shirt was later removed, other Twitter users pointed out the phrase is still featured on other children's clothing items on the site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely sick; and all the marketing people at Amazon signed off on this?!?

PIERS MORGAN: In one brutally ballsy talk-show appearance, Donald Trump Jr. gave us a stunning View of barefaced lying liberal celebrity hypocrisy - and it wasn't a pretty sight

Even before Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View yesterday, liberal celebrities were howling their fury.

Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who hasn't stopped hysterically raging about all things Trump for the past four years, was incensed the President's son was even allowed to go on at all.

'Why would you bring him on?' she tweeted the ABC show's Twitter account. 'You trying to be 'balanced'?'

You could almost feel the bile laced all over her lips as she spat out the dreaded b-word.

Messing is an expert in disappointing and irresponsible decisions.

A few weeks ago, she demanded the Hollywood Reporter publish the names of everyone attending a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Her Will and Grace co-star Eric McCormack revealed the sinister motive behind this demand: 'Kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don't wanna work with. Thx.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

God bless Whoopi Goldberg for "having had the sand" to remind people about the
McCarthy era, and what this kind of legacies these kinds of witch hunts can create.

Las Vegas becomes first major city to make it a crime to sleep or camp out on the streets as it moves to tackle the homeless crisis blighting cities across America

Las Vegas officials passed a law on Wednesday the first in the US that will make it illegal for homeless people to sleep on streets when beds are available at established shelters.

The measure will apply to the city's downtown urban core, not the tourist-heavy Las Vegas Strip, which is overseen by a different jurisdiction.

Las Vegas becomes the latest city in the US West - from San Francisco and Seattle to Honolulu and Salt Lake City - to try to deal with complaints about homelessness.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a similar law from Boise, Idaho, last year - calling it unconstitutional to prosecute people for sleeping in public places when there aren't enough shelter beds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just going to make the homeless crisis in Vegas worse, not better.

What happens where there are no beds at community shelters, and what happens to those who have no housing whatsoever?!?!?

Families Of Cartel-Assault Victims Insist Deadly Attack "Was No Accident"

Contrary to our expectations, the slaying of nine members of a Mormon community living in Northern Mexico at the hands of Mexican cartel gunmen seems to have already dropped out of the news cycle, perhaps because it's already become clear that neither the US nor Mexico is planning to hold the attackers accountable.

Senior Mexican security officials who are obviously worried about more bad press insist that the attack was a case of mistaken identity. But keep in mind, these are the same people who initially told the world that federal police just happened to stumble upon the son of El Chapo in Culiacan (denying that his arrest had been the target of an organized operation).

Security Minister Alfonso Durazo, whose name has been in the press frequently in the aftermath of the attack, said earlier this week that the gunmen may have attacked the women because they suspected they were members of a rival gang during a period of intense turf wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for all who were killed, wounded, and all family/friends affected by this horrific attack; but I have to wonder; did the Cartel ordering the hit think that this Mormon family saw or heard something which justified their assassinations?

And with babies on board?!?

Were I part of a "Mormon dissident family", I would be thinking about leaving Mexico, and just as soon as was humanly possible.

Momentum stalls in Congress for aid to ailing national parks

Our country is headed for 3rd world status. Mainly because of all the money the Defense Department and their Israeli masters suck out of our economy for their incessant wars.

DENVER, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Momentum in Congress has sputtered for bills that would help the U.S. National Park Service finance a $12 billion backlog in maintenance needs.

Even though it has wide bipartisan support, the Restore Our Parks legislation that would send $6.5 billion over five years to improve park infrastructure is lingering in legislative limbo. The money would come from offshore and onshore royalty revenues for oil and gas on public lands.

"This legislation represents one of the most significant investments in the 100-year history of the Park Service," co-lead author Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said in an email. "The longer we kick the can on the deferred maintenance backlog, the more we'll hold back communities that rely on visitors to help generate economic activity."

Pentagon: Revenue From Syrian Oil Will Go to Kurdish SDF, Not US

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman told reporters on Thursday that while the US continues to expand its presence in and around east Syria with an aim of protecting and controlling the oil fields, the US won’t be keeping the money.

“The revenue from this is not going to the US, this is going to the SDF,” Hoffman said, suggesting the US-backed Kurds will get all the money. That’s still entirely speculative, however, because no US company has expressed any willingness to extract the oil in the first place.

It’s also not what has been sold to the US by President Trump. Trump has insisted that the US would be keeping some of the oil for itself, telling crowds recently that it would amount to $45 million a month and that it was always his intention to “keep the oil.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly think that the Pentagon is "shopping the scenario" of the Kurds getting the money from these oil fields, to try to compensate for the lousy "taste in the mouth" from smaller countries world wide, who are wondering right now; "OK, if the US has decided it can expropriate/steal Syria's oil with no backlash, and since we don't have much of a "standing army", when will the US invade our country for our resources?!?"

The question is absolutely legitimate, given the current US international policies right now.

US Claims Iran Preparing ‘Nuclear Breakout: Pompeo demands world powers act against Iran

Iran restarted enrichment at the underground Fordow site overnight on Wednesday, and on Thursday US officials were accusing Iran of preparing a “nuclear breakout” situation the international community must unite against.

The concept of the “nuclear breakout” has always been ill-defined, but rests on the notion that at some point Iran would have such a substantial civilian nuclear program that it would be tantamount to an irreversible military program. Though it’s not clear that’s even theoretically possible, as nations like Canada and Japan have never been accused of approaching a “breakout” despite huge nuclear programs, attaching the label to Iran has been popular with US hawks and Israel.

The breakout idea is meant to push a narrative in which action, presumably a war, needs to be launched quickly. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took the lead in urging other world powers to do something to force Iran back into compliance with the P5+1 deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh)Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike; please who rescinded their agreement to the PO5 +1 agreement, initially?!? Are you having a hard time remembering this, and would you like something approximating rational logic with which you can examine Iran's reasons for doing what it is doing?!?, as you look at this situation?

Well, sir, perhaps not, given your recent penchant for hubristic tirades about everything, but let me brake it down for you, if you are having a problem.

On May 8th, 2018, President Trump rescinded US support for the P5 + 1 agreement, and dropped out of the agreement.

It’s official: President Trump is pulling the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal.

This was, of course, premised on statements made by then-Israeli Premier, who , of course, charged, Iran with "having lied" about its nuclear program (as if Netanyahu was not always lying, or, equivocating on Israel's nuclear program; I smell some very choice A, bovine excrement about to hit the ventilation shaft, but let's see what Netanyahu had to say back in April 2018 on this): Netanyahu/Israel says IOran lied on nuclear arms, and pressures the US to scrap the deal

The article goes on to state: " Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled on Monday what he said was evidence of a secret Iranian nuclear weapons program that could step up pressure on the United States to pull out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran."

"U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the information showed that Iran’s leaders lied to their people about a nuclear weapons program known as “Project Amad”. But Pompeo declined to say whether the documents provided evidence of a violation of the nuclear deal."

Intelligence experts and diplomats said Netanyahu’s presentation, in a prime-time television presentation, did not seem to have a “smoking gun” showing a violation by Iran but it could strengthen the hand of advisers to U.S. President Donald Trump who want to scrap the nuclear agreement.

Which was why this j'accuse/dossier was created in the first place.

Most of the purported evidence Netanyahu presented dated to the period before the 2015 accord was signed, although he said Iran had also kept important files on nuclear technology since then, and continued adding to its “nuclear weapons knowledge”.

None of the foregoing was strong enough actually be considered "real evidence"; we are looking at hearsay; half-truths; and material allegedly documenting some of Iran's nuclear programs which were developed way before the 2015 Agreement.

So Secretary of State Pompeo, I have (shudder, sir, here it comes) a logical question; if the US has rescinded its support for the P5 +1 deal, why should Iran abide by it?!? Forgive me, Secretary, but where is the logic, the quid pro quo in this threat against Iran?!?

The short answer, sir, is that there is no logic in the US's position that Iran should observe the treaty, while the US has withdrawn from it; sorry, but it makes absolutely zero sense to thinking people.

And Secretary Pompeo, I would respectfully suggest, that if the US government is thinking about a war against Iran, including a decap-strike against Tehran, that perhaps they should just suck it up, and not do it.

The reason I am making this statement, is the reality that one of Russia's top officials, last June, which made the observation that if Iran is attacked by the US, that Russia would come to its aid.

Iran won't be a lone if the US Attacks, Russian Official Says. This promise was made to Iran by Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

And trust me, Sec Def Pompeo; this man hardly inhales air, before Putin tells him it is OK to exhale.

How to Do the Marcel Waves, Step-by-Step Tutorial, 1920s

The Marcel waves reached their height of popularity during the '20s, about 15 years after the first electric curling iron was invented.
At the time, waving was the primary way that women managed and grew out their bobs. Hair irons were sold touting that they "feminised" the short cuts young girls would come to regret. You see, bobs were a lot more edgy 100 years ago.

A Single Bread Costs 4.6 Million During Germany's Hyperinflation in 1923

The 1921--1924 hyperinflation happened mainly because of three things: the ongoing internal political instability in the country, the occupation of the Ruhr district by foreign troops, and when the Weimar (modern-day Germany) government printed too much banknotes to pay reparations after the 1923 French invasion. Because the banknotes were not matched by Germany's production, their value fell.

Facebook Removes News Reporting, Mention of Alleged ‘Whistleblower’s’ Identity

Facebook is removing any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name and is cracking down against Facebook publishers that mention any allegation of the potential whistleblower’s name, claiming they are violating Facebook’s Community Standards and Policies.

For example, on Wednesday evening, Facebook removed Breitbart posts reporting on the fact other respected news outlets have reported the identity of the alleged whistleblower is Eric Ciaramella. Any Facebook user who attempts to click on that article on Facebook is now given a message that says, “this content isn’t available at the moment.”

Report: Fox News Management Forbids Hosts from Using Alleged Name of Ukraine ‘Whistleblower’

Fox News Channel management have ordered network hosts to refrain from using the alleged name of the so-called “whistleblower” — reported to be Eric Ciaramella — who sparked the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, according to a report.

CNN Business states that while some Fox News personalities want to use the name reportedly linked to the “whistleblower” complaint, bosses have warned against the move. On October 31, an unnamed executive emailed staff that the network had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower” and advised to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” in connection to the so-called “whistleblower’s” identity, according to the report.

"Are You Calling Me Stupid?" Gabbard Rips Joy Behar's 'Useful Idiot' Smear On The View

Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard faced the increasingly nasty smears branding her a Russian asset and "traitor" head on during The View on Wednesday, following the recent spat with Hillary Clinton who suggested the Kremlin was "grooming" Gabbard to be a third-party candidate.

"Some of you have accused me of being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse, or a useful idiot I think was the term that you used," Gabbard told the panel, after in prior episodes Joy Behar especially had agreed with and aggressively amplified Hillary's baseless claims. The panel had also previously called her a Trojan horse. Gabbard came out swinging in her remarks: "It's offensive to me as a soldier, as an American, as a member of Congress, as a veteran, and frankly as a woman, to be so demeaned in such a way.”

In liberal Austin, anal sex will now be taught to children in grades 3 through 8 as public education becomes pedophilia indoctrination

The Austin Independent School District (AISD) in Texas has voted to implement a new pro-LGBTQP curriculum that includes teaching third-graders how to have anal sex.

In a unanimous decision, the district’s board decided that the most “inclusive” path forward is to confuse children as young as eight into believing that male-female biology is “oppressive.” Further, these youth will now be told that they can pick any gender they’d like, and also put their reproductive organs wherever it feels good to them, including with the use of sex toys if it feels right.

Tulsi Gabbard Floats 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

The 2020 Democratic presidential contender sent out a campaign email Tuesday that hinted at a conspiracy at the highest levels of the U.S. government to stop the public from fully knowing the role that longtime U.S. partner Saudi Arabia played in the attacks.

“We deserve all the information on 9/11,” read the subject line. In a video linked to in the email and posted on Gabbard’s website alongside a petition asking President Donald Trump to declassify “all information related to 9/11,” Gabbard wrote: “The American people still don’t have access to the truth about Saudi Arabia and who helped Al Qaeda carry out these deadly attacks … It is absolutely unacceptable that our government’s investigation into Saudi ties has been kept from these 9/11 families and from the American people.”

Irish academic calls for the term 'Anglo-Saxon' to be DROPPED from modern speech because it has 'links with white supremacists'

The term Anglo-Saxon is 'bound up with white supremacy' and should be replaced with 'early English', academics have argued.

Anglo-Saxon traditionally refers to groups from Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands who settled in Britain at the end of Roman rule.

However, early medieval England specialist Mary Rambaran-Olm, an independent scholar and author, claimed the term is used by white supremacists to refer to white British people and should be banned.

Crisis in Haiti nears boiling point

For nearly a year and a half, protesters in Haiti have been calling on President Jovenel Moïse to step down. What began with dissatisfaction at fuel shortages has evolved into widespread anger over the rising cost of living and a corrupt elite. All sectors of Haiti's economy and public services are at a standstill, and demonstrations often descend into riots. FRANCE 24's Flavian Charuel reports.
