‘Black Panther’ Review: The Movie’s Hero is Trump, the Villain is Black Lives Matter

Black Panther is not a movie about race, it is a movie about ideas and ideals, about our shared humanity. Our hero is not in favor of protecting ethno-nationalism, but rather a healthy form of nationalism.

If T’Challa is Trump, Killmonger is Black Lives Matter.

Did I just write that?

Yes. I. Did.

Student who survived Parkland school shooting: ‘We were told the police would do a fake code red, with fake guns’

Florida ‘code red’ active shooter drill with “fake guns” went live, several eyewitnesses suggest. Did police use the wrong type of ammo (i.e. live rounds I.L.O. blanks) or did another element capitalize on the drill by hijacking it and taking it hot?

PARKLAND, Fla. (INTELLIHUB) — Many credible sources, including students, parents, and teachers of the school have openly admitted on camera that they were told at one point or another prior to the Valentine’s Day shooting that a “code red” active shooter drill would be taking place.

Why We’re Underestimating American Collapse

You might say, having read some of my recent essays, “Umair! Don’t worry! Everything will be fine! It’s not that bad!” I would look at you politely, and then say gently, “To tell you the truth, I don’t think we’re taking collapse nearly seriously enough.”

Why? When we take a hard look at US collapse, we see a number of social pathologies on the rise. Not just any kind. Not even troubling, worrying, and dangerous ones. But strange and bizarre ones. Unique ones. Singular and gruesomely weird ones I’ve never really seen before, and outside of a dystopia written by Dickens and Orwell, nor have you, and neither has history. They suggest that whatever “numbers” we use to represent decline?—?shrinking real incomes, inequality, and so on —we are in fact grossly underestimating what pundits call the “human toll”, but which sensible human beings like you and I should simply think of as the overwhelming despair, rage, and anxiety of living in a collapsing society.

President Trump’s New Record: The Longest Time Without a Formal Press Conference in Half a Century

Over the course of 77 dizzying minutes, Trump told journalists hastily corralled into the East Room that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was “fake news,” asked an African-American reporter whether she was friends with the Congressional Black Congress, and declared that members of the media who printed leaks from within his own White House should be “ashamed of themselves.”

Deputies called to suspected shooter’s home 39 times over seven years

Before Nikolas Cruz carried out his mass killing at a Florida high school this week, police responded to his home 39 times over a seven-year period, according to disturbing new documents.

Details about the calls to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office — obtained from police records by CNN — were not immediately available and it was impossible to determine if all involved Cruz.

But the nature of the emergencies at his Parkland home included “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance” and “missing person,” KTLA reported.

And a schoolmate, Brody Speno, told the network that cops were called to Cruz’s home “almost every other week.”

“Something wasn’t right about him,” Speno told CNN. “He was off.”

CNN Reporter Left in Tears After Florida School Shooting Victim's Mother Begs Trump to 'Do Something'

Lori Alhadeff, whose daughter was one of the victims who died on Wednesday in the Florida school shooting shared a powerful message for President Donald Trump.
On Wednesday, a lone gunman walked into a Florida high school, pulled the fire alarm, and randomly began shooting until he had murdered 17 people and injured at least a dozen more. It would mark the 18th school shooting in 2018 and become one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.

A man inside the school spotted Cruz and knew he was a former student, a troubled kid. He radioed a co-worker, and within a minute heard gunshots.

Local law enforcement: No ties between militia and Florida high school shooter

Local law enforcement sources have not found a connection between accused Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz and a Tallahassee-based paramilitary group.

Leon County law enforcement sources told the Tallahassee Democrat that they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb.

His comments to the Anti-Defamation League and The Associated Press set off a media firestorm Thursday at about midday that Cruz was connected to the alt-right, white nationalist group.

Every mass shooting over last 20 years has one thing in common... and it's not guns

Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it's not the weapons used.

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

STRANGE: RESPONDERS THROW BODY BAG IN BACK OF TRUCK AMID FLORIDA SHOOTING

First responders were filmed carrying a heavy body bag to the back of a pickup truck, which apparently occurred either during the shooting – which is odd – or right after the shooting when police should be securing the scene for an investigation:

But what’s in the bag? Weapons? But how could one shooter (what the media’s currently reporting) handle a weapons cache that takes two trained professionals to carry?

And they wouldn’t take evidence AWAY from a crime scene before an investigation… that’s not protocol.

Is it SWAT gear? Don’t they typically carry gear on their own instead of lugging it around in body bags? And why is the bag being escorted by four officers, one of which appears to be wearing medical gloves?

UPDATE: Law Enforcement Says No White Nationalist Ties to Florida High School Shooter

Earlier this week, the leader of a white nationalist militia claimed Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz was a member of his group and took part in paramilitary drills conducted in Tallahassee, something local law enforcement are saying is not true.

Our own reporter, Jim E, expressed skepticism of the claims, calling them “shocking” and “very strange” based on his indiscriminate targeting of victims and his own potential heritage.

“We’ll learn soon enough if Cruz was actually a member of this alleged white nationalist group,” Jim wrote. “For now, we should be skeptical.”

Leon County officials indicate that skepticism was well-placed.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, “Leon County law enforcement sources” said that “they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb.”

R.T.: Leaked Chats Reveal Assange's’ Extreme Disdain For Hillary Clinton

***
In the autumn of 2015, when the idea of Donald Trump becoming the next US president was still deemed highly unlikely by most political pundits, the iconic whistleblower spoke candidly about Clinton and his preference for a GOP victory. “We believe it would be much better for GOP to win,” he reportedly wrote. “Dems+Media+liberals woudl (sic) then form a block to reign in their worst qualities.” A couple minutes later, he apparently called the Democratic candidate a "bright, well connected, sadistic sociopath.”

However, Assange's preference for a GOP win didn't seem to come from his loyalty to America's conservatives. In fact, he apparently admitted that Republicans would "generate a lot oposition (sic), including through dumb moves."

MEDIA IGNORING 1 CRUCIAL FACTOR IN FLORIDA SCHOOL SHOOTING

Here we go again. A horrific mass shooting occurs. Everyone is in shock and grief. Democrats blame guns and Republicans. Pundits urge the public, “If you see something, say something.” And everyone asks, “Why?”

As information about the perpetrator emerges, a relative confides to a newspaper that the “troubled youth” who committed the mass murder was on psychiatric medications – you know, those powerful, little understood, mind-altering drugs with fearsome side effects including “suicidal ideation” and even “homicidal ideation.”

Yet the predictable response from the press is always the same – not only a total lack of curiosity, but disdain for any who ask the question, as though connecting psychiatric meds to mass shootings is pursuing a “conspiracy theory.”

Feminist Accuses English Language Of Being Sexist, Gets Brilliantly Schooled By Linguist

It started off with a premise that, to be fair, deserves discussion and scrutiny. A Tumblr user, who refers to herself as ‘Feminist Chewbacca’ wanted to discover the root causes of patriarchal domination in society, and turned to the English language to investigate the inherent sexism it allegedly contains.
In these days of fake news and agenda pushing however, it has never been more important to check your facts. This is where Feminist Chewbacca came unstuck. Reblogging a post she had found on Visual Poetry, she had probably not counted on being fact-checked by an actual linguist. Her poorly chosen examples were deconstructed one by one, until she began to look rather basic, and a bit silly.
