The holocaust and its deniers

"In the aftermath of the holocaust some Jewish intellectuals and humanists expressed the thought that “after Auschwitz Jews have to locate themselves at the forefront of the battle for humanity and against all forms of oppression”.

"This is a principled and heroic ideal, but the reality on the ground has been somewhat different. Just three years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the Jewish state ethnically cleansed the vast majority of indigenous Palestinians. Two years later, in 1950, Israel’s Knesset passed the Law of Return, a racist law that distinguishes between Jews who have the right to ‘return’ to someone else’s land and the hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees that were expelled by force from their villages and cities.

Ecuador Will Imminently Withdraw Asylum for Julian Assange and Hand Him Over to the U.K. What Comes Next?

ECUADOR’S PRESIDENT LENÍN Moreno traveled to London on Friday for the ostensible purpose of speaking at the 2018 Global Disability Summit (Moreno has been using a wheelchair since being shot in a 1998 robbery attempt). The concealed actual purpose of the president’s trip is to meet with British officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, in place since 2012; eject him from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London; and then hand over the WikiLeaks founder to British authorities.

YOUNG MAN WITH DOWN SYNDROME AND MENTALITY OF 3-YEAR-OLD, KILLED BY COPS FOR HOLDING TOY GUN

A 20-year-old man with Down syndrome was shot and killed by police this week as he walked down the street with a toy gun. Police claimed the young man — who, according to his mother, had the mentality of a 3-year-old — created a threat that needed to be dealt with with deadly force.

According to the victim’s father, Richard Torell, his son Eric grabbed a toy gun from his toy pile and disappeared overnight.

“I woke up because Eric was gone,” Richard Torell told Expressen. “I went out and looked for him. I saw police cars on the street.

“Three police officers shot him in his stomach.”

Bangladesh authorities have shut down mobile internet across the country, in an effort to contain the violence and what they is misinformation online.

America's About To Unleash Its NOPEC 'Superweapon' Against The Russians & Saudis

Officially called the “No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act”, NOPEC is the definition of so-called “lawfare” because it enables the US to extra-territorially impose its domestic legislation on others by giving the government the right to sue OPEC and OPEC+ countries like Russia because of their coordinated efforts to control oil prices.

Lawsuits, however, are unenforceable, which is why the targeted states’ refusal to abide by the US courts’ likely predetermined judgement against them will probably be used to trigger sanctions under the worst-case scenario, with this chain of events being catalyzed in order to achieve several strategic objectives.

The first is that the US wants to break up the Russian-Saudi axis that forms the core of OPEC+, which leads to the second goal of then unravelling the entire OPEC structure and heralding in the free market liberalization of the global energy industry.

When Israel Backers Claim to be Anti-racist, One Needs to Ask Questions

What to call someone who claims to oppose racism, except for that directed against Palestinians?

Judge someone by what they have done and continue to do. Consider the source. These thoughts ran through my mind as I struggled to write about Bernie Farber’s standing among some Left/liberals.

After Israel recently solidified its apartheid regime, a Facebook friend posted an opinion by illustrious pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim titled “Today, I Am Ashamed to Be an Israeli.” While expressing opposition to its recent entrenchment of Jewish supremacism, the story effectively denied the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by claiming,

“the founding fathers of the State of Israel who signed the Declaration [of independence] considered the principle of equality as the bedrock of the society they were building.”

3-Year Old Report on Fracking Risks Quietly Published This Week After Cuadrilla Permit Awarded

In 2015, the UK Government’s Air Quality Expert Group (AQEG) wrote a report citing the increase of national pollution emissions that would be caused by proposed shale development in Britain.

Before the report was finally published this week, Public Health England, UK’s official body for the improvement of the nation’s health and wellbeing, always concluded that “the risks to public health from exposure to emissions from shale gas extraction are low if operations are properly run and regulated.”

Now, the AQEG report warns that

“Impacts on local and regional air quality have the potential to be substantially higher than the national level impacts, as extraction activities are likely to be highly clustered. Studies in the US have shown significant impacts on both local air quality and regional ozone formation, but similar studies have not yet been undertaken for the UK.“

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as May continues as Prime Minister, these fracking operations will continue apace; after all, she doesn't have to live downwind from them, or risk contamination in her water from them.

Colombia’s Uribe to US Business Leaders: Help Take Out Maduro

A video was revealed on Sunday showing former Colombian president, Alvaro Uribe, telling a group of listeners that Venezuelan soldiers need to “remove” President Nicolas Maduro from office.

The recording was released just 24 hours after two air drones carrying explosives were detonated above President Maduro and several members of his administration on Saturday as the head of state addressed a large crowd at the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard in Caracas. Maduro and other Venezuelan officials are saying that right-wing factions in the United States, Venezuelan and Colombia are behind the drone bombs.

In the video the former president and current Congress member says in English:

“I have said this in public, I have said that the Venezuelan soldiers need to remove that government (of Nicolas Maduro), not to establish a military government, but to call for a rapid transition, with democratic and transparent elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: just what did the guy know, and when did he know such an attempt would be made on Maduro's life, to be saying this to a group of US businessmen hours before the attempt?!?

The Legacy of Infinite War

At a recent Pentagon press briefing, Task & Purpose’s Jeff Schogol asked General Joseph Votel, former SOCOM commander and the current chief of U.S. forces in the Greater Middle East, if “a new generation of children will grow up to have to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.” Votel largely punted on the issue of how generational the war on terror might prove to be, but his answer was still a telling one. “I do recognize we’ve certainly been in Afghanistan for a long time – and of course, we’re back in Iraq for a second/third time addressing some of these problems,” he replied. “I think this is a reminder that these things often take time.”

Time indeed.

Iran Scrambles to Ready Economy for US Sanctions

With US sanctions against Iran officially going back into place on August 6, the Iranian government is scrambling to take some last minute measures to shore up their economy, and particularly their currency, before the sanctions start to hit.

Trying to protect the rial is a high priority, with a former central bank deputy governor and a number of foreign exchange dealers arrested amid the rial plummeting to all-time lows. On Monday, a rash of strict new measures are to be imposed on foreign currency access to try to limit any further falls.

Iran wants to make sure that what foreign currency does flow overseas is strictly allocated to a handful of important industries. The fall of prices for the rial has been heavy related to the surge in the price of gold, as economic uncertainty has many Iranians running to precious metals, and gold imports surged in recent weeks.

US sanctions aim to limit, if not totally eliminate, Iran’s access to foreign markets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what does President Trump intend to do with the countries which have already stated, publicly, that they will not observe the sanctions, declare war against them all?!?

I do not think that we are looking at a war against Iran immediately; but President Trump has declared Sunday, 4 November, as the "drop dead date" past which no countries on the planet are supposed to buy Iranian oil. That's just two days ahead of mid-term elections. I would imagine that we might see some kind of limited attack against Iran on either Monday, 5 November, or right on the date of the mid-terms, which would be 6 November.

Heavy Fighting in Yemen Port City: Over 80 Killed in Last Two Days

Having resumed their offensive last week, Saudi-led forces pushed into the Yemeni port city oh Hodeidah over the weekend. They faced heavy resistance, and the whole weekend saw fighting raging across the area.

At least 80 people were killed, with heavy casualties reported on both sides. Among the killed, 30 fighters who were part of a UAE-led force pushing into the city from the south. They were ambushed just south of the Hodeidah airport.

Hodeidah is the last rebel-held port in Yemen, and subsequently the lone source of aid for the entire northern half of the country. It is estimated the port imports food for 8.4 million people, and this has led to repeated warnings that the conquest of the city could lead to a more or less immediate, major famine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More famine; more disease; and fewer bombs and bullets needed to kill what is left of the Yemeni people; this is what America's Merchant of Death in Chief (AKA, President Trump) and Saudi Arabia's B.O.Y. (AKA the Butcher of Yemen) want to see happen here, and quickly.

And if it does not happen quickly enough to suit their liking, look for a massive carpet bombing campaign to start; after all, the US and Saudi Arabian leadership have utterly no qualms about killing innocent civilians.

They do it all the time here.

Machete-Wielding Nigerians Wage War In Italian City

Blood flows in the streets of Ferrara, Italy, as Nigerian migrants wage war with machetes, axes and knives, local media reports.

A slew of gruesome attacks have taken place in the last week in shop squares, parks, and bars as gang members and drug dealers settle disputes with lethal weapons in the once-peaceful bastion of high culture and gastronomy.

Police and emergency services have been responding to scenes of frequent clashes where butchered combatants are found lying in pools of gore.

"A nightmare... We are at the fourth fight on the street in two days. Here it is normal now," said a local official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Italy: how's that "cultural enrichment thing" working out for you?!?

Kremlin plans to turn annexed Crimea into cultural capital

Six masterpieces from Russia’s top art galleries and museums will be moved to Crimea to be housed in a new cultural center on the peninsula, according to a project presented to President Vladimir Putin.

The planned arts center is another step integrating Crimea, annexed from Ukraine in 2014, into the Russian state, after a major bridge linking the peninsula and the Russian mainland was opened in May.

The project, outlined by Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, will feature an opera and ballet theater, a museum, a cinema and a school of dance, the politician told Putin in a conversation transcribed on the Kremlin website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can't get it straight, can you, Reuters?!? Or are the staff writers who cobbled this bit of codswallop together collectively suffering a debilitating bout of SMD? (selective memory disorder)

So let's get this straight, shall we, Reuters?!?

Let's set the "wayback machine" to 2014, when the US/Western putsch toppled the duly elected President of Ukraine, President Yanukovich, and replaced him with the "anointed" Peter Poroshenko, who won in an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg.

President Obama admitted, publicly, that the US was a part of that putsch.
President Obama admits that the US Brokered a Deal in Support of Regime Change in Ukraine

This was in a TV interview with Fareed Zakaria on CNN.

Had you bothered to fact-check, Reuters, you would have known that this was true.

Then, the Crimean government did two things: it held a free and fair referendum, post-putsch, asking their people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, which had no lawful government in Kiev, or petition Russia to become a member of the Russian Federation.

Overwhelmingly, the people of Crimea voted to request a membership in the Russian Federation, and that petition was accepted by the Russian Federation.

There was no annexation, period, end of discussion; congrats, Reuters, on winning the "Sloppy, Fact-Free Alleged Reporting" for lousy journalism, completely unrelated to the facts as they unfolded!!

You guys MUST feel great, for continuing to pervert reality to the US government's narrative here, which has no basis in reality whatsoever.

Insane feminist goes on national TV to claim “women can do no wrong” and all men are “toxic”

Men who embody their God-given roles as leaders, protectors, and warriors in society are doing it all wrong, according to Fox News “insider” and political columnist Cathy Areu. During a recent segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” this feminist magazine publisher tried really hard to make that case that masculinity is “toxic,” insisting that men are responsible for committing all of the crimes in society and that “women can do no wrong.”

Kutztown University Professor Colleen Clemens was originally scheduled to appear on Carlson’s show after she publicly blamed masculinity for the recent Texas church shooting on Twitter. But after canceling because she said she “feared for her safety” due to her insane views, Clemens was replaced by Areu who had no qualms about declaring on the cable program that men are basically the worst thing since the Holocaust.

Hundreds of tourists were told to leave the Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa in Monchique, some 20 miles north of Portimao, just after midnight.

Staff, who confirmed that a majority of guests were British, said they had been ordered to evacuate as the forest fire came within a mile of the hotel and flames cold be seen from the windows.

Black Chicagoans Blast "Con Man" Mayor Emanuel Amid Record Shooting Spree, Ask Trump For Help

77 people were shot last week in Chicago, 9 fatally, but the rate of shootings has accelerated aggressively today as 'HeyJackass' reports "30 shot in 3 hours is the most shot in the least amount of time we’ve recorded in 5+ years. The previous record was July 4-5, 2016 w/ 29 shot in 6 hours."

Amid this carnage, ABC7Chicago reports that, police said there was a "trauma lockdown" at Stroger Hospital with only immediate family members of victims are being allowed in the emergency room. A spokeswoman for Stroger Hospital disputes the police account.

But, judging by the protests this week - that will shock the mainstream media narrative out of much of America - Chicagoans (particularly black inner city citizens) are furious at Mayor Rahm Emanuel's impotence and are asking President Trump for help.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Chicago represents the outcomes of Democratic Party leadership, writ large... and failing miserably.

REPORT: President Trump to Declassify June 2017 Carter Page FISA Renewal App Signed By Rod Rosenstein

Thanks to Judicial Watch, the Carter Page FISA docs were released a couple weeks ago after the watchdog filed a FOIA lawsuit.

Although the documents were dishonestly and heavily redacted, they confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the FISA courts.

GOP lawmakers such as Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) called for the FISA docs to be declassified.

President Trump tweeted about the Carter Page FISA docs shortly after they were released to the public, slamming Crooked Hillary and called for the discredited Mueller witch hunt to be shut down.

WELLS FARGO SAYS HUNDREDS OF CUSTOMERS LOST HOMES AFTER COMPUTER GLITCH

Hundreds of people had their homes foreclosed on after software used by Wells Fargo incorrectly denied them mortgage modifications.

The embattled bank revealed the issue in a regulatory filing this week and said it has set aside $8 million to compensate customers affected by the glitch.

The same filing also disclosed that Wells Fargo (WFC) is facing "formal or informal inquiries or investigations" from unnamed government agencies over how the company purchased federal low-income housing tax credits. The document states the probes are linked to "the financing of low income housing developments," but does not offer further details.

Reuters first reported news of investigations and mishandled mortgage modifications on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This organization is so institutionally crooked, that it should be sued in a class action suit from people who have lost their homes, and be sued irrecoverably, so that it ceases to exist.

SIXTY DEAD, OVER 100 WOUNDED IN SAUDI AIR STRIKES ON YEMENI PORT CITY

The toll from US-backed Saudi coalition air strikes on a fish market and hospital in the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah Thursday has risen to at least 60 people dead and 130 others wounded. The bombardment, which has been all but ignored by the establishment press, comes amid a weeks-long siege of the western city and coalition efforts to destroy vital civilian infrastructure, threatening to sharply escalate the world’s most dire humanitarian crisis.

Saudi coalition warplanes struck a crowded Hodeidah fish market as throngs of residents packed in to purchase one of Yemen’s only abundant domestic sources of food. Witnesses report a chaotic scene as a warplane overhead fired upon the packed market, then continued to linger above the city. As people rushed the dead and injured to the al-Thawra hospital just 20 meters (60 feet) away, the warplane began bombing the entrance to the hospital, apparently to prevent the injured from receiving treatment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With these attacks doing nothing to forward Saudi Arabia's and the US's military posture soon here, look for a complete carpet bombing of the country to commence shortly, and the phrase "body count" to come back into the corporate presstitutes' lexicon shortly, if they cover this at all.

Antianxiety drugs — often more deadly than opioids — are fueling the next drug crisis in US

Today more than 40 million adults in the United States suffer from anxiety, and it is the most common mental illness in the United States.
Overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines — such as Xanax, Librium, Valium and Ativan, drugs commonly used to treat anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, seizures and insomnia — have quadrupled between 2002 and 2015, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

The trend is being fueled by a 67 percent rise in prescriptions.
The market for benzos, as they are called, is expected to reach $3.8 billion in the U.S. by 2020, reports Zion Market Research.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember two things here:

Sometimes nutrition can make a huge difference in calming your anxiety; educate yourself as to what can work well here, because knowledge is power.

And secondly, many doctors receive "compensations", or perks, for prescribing you medications; I know this is true, because it happened to me, with a doctor at my HMO, who is no longer with the group.

There are several websites you can use to determine which pharmaceutical manufacturers are compensating doctors for various prescriptions.

UN ACCUSES CHINA & RUSSIA OF DPRK OF SANCTIONS VIOLATIONS IN NEW REPORT

According to the United States, the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea) is violating United Nations Security Council (UNSC) restrictions concerning their nuclear testing and missile development programs. These accusations come from a six-month report released last week by the UN which claims Pyongyang is violating restrictions on both of these programs according to new intelligence gathered.

Besides the alleged violations of the UNSC restrictions on the DPRK’s arms development, Korea has also been accused of violating economic sanctions “through a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products, as well as through transfers of coal at sea during 2018.” The UNSC also claimed that the DPRK was assisting the governments of Syria with weapons as well as attempting to sell arms to the Ansarullah movement (Houthis) in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if the Trump administration is about to do a "volte" (about-face) relative to North Korea, because it appears that what was promised by Kim Jung Un and his government at the Singapore Summit may well not be about to materialize, and definitely, at no point in time soon.

The timing of the release of these accusations is very interesting.

UNITED STATES FLUBS ASSASSINATION IN CARACAS?

Did the US try to assassinate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro?
John Bolton, Trump’s veteran neocon national security adviser, told Fox News the US had nothing to do with the explosive drone attack during an appearance in Caracas that injured several people but left Maduro and his entourage untouched.

“I can say unequivocally there was no U.S. government involvement in this at all. If the government of Venezuela has hard information that they want to present to us that would show a potential violation of U.S. criminal law, we’ll take a serious look at it, but in the meantime I think what we really should focus on is the corruption and oppression in the Maduro regime in Venezuela,” said Bolton during an interview with Chris Wallace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent to me that no other nation-state on the planet has the resources to do something like this, or would do something like this; whatever alphabet soup agencies put this together flubbed, horrifically.

Apparently, some in the bowels of power in DC couldn't wait for the slow, inexorable slide into total chaos and economic oblivion into which the Venezuelan government has led its citizens.

They just wanted to insure that the long-awaited regime change happened a little bit sooner than was ultimately inevitable, because they wanted to make sure the incoming government was US-centric, and that Venezuela's huge oil reserves would only be sold in US dollars.

Speed, plus greed, can lead to massive foul-ups, as happened in this case. I can imagine that there were both ashtrays and very foul language flying in DC on Saturday evening.

Now, Maduro knows, incontrovertibly, that he is in the crosshairs of a US-backed assassination campaign, and that the US government will not rest, until they have accomplished their mission, which is to see him dead.

Were I Maduro, I would be chemically checking everything in his living environment, from the toothpaste (Mossad killed Arafat with polonium in his toothpaste) to the laundry detergent used on his clothing.

WE'LL PAY ALL THOSE FUTURE OBLIGATIONS BY IMPOVERISHING EVERYONE (HOW TO DESTROY OUR CURRENCY IN ONE EASY LESSON)

The only way to pay all these future obligations is by creating new money.

Here's the uncomfortable reality: the means to pay all these future obligations-- the real-world economy, and the wealth and income of the vast majority of the populace-- are far too modest to fund the fast-expanding obligations,which include interest due on the ever-increasing mountain of public and private debt.

The current "everything" asset bubbles have temporarily boosted the wealth and income of corporations and the wealthy, but all bubbles eventually pop as the marginal elements that are propping up the expansion weaken and implode.

Once the asset bubbles pop, the illusion that "taxing the rich" will pay for all the obligations pops along with the bubble. And as I've noted many times, those at the top of the wealth-power pyramid wield political power, so they have the means and the motive to limit their tax burden to roughly 20% or less--(sometimes much less, as in zero.)

SYRIANS ACCUSE ISRAEL OF ASSASSINATING TOP MISSILE SCIENTIST IN HAMA PROVINCE

One of Syria’s leading pro-government newspapers has said that Israel was behind a bomb blast in Hama province that killed a senior scientist working for the country’s missile program. Aziz Azbar was reportedly a senior research director at the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center, known as CERS. The Damascus-based agency is thought to be at the center of the Syrian government’s formidable chemical weapons program. Last year, the United States Department of the Treasury imposed economic sanctions on nearly 300 CERS employees, after Washington accused them of being directly responsible for the Syrian government’s repeated use of chemical weapons against rebels and civilians. The European Union, as well as the French and British governments, also imposed sanctions on CERS and its staff.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the kind of hit for which Mossad is extraordinarily well-recognised; I would tend to believe the Syrian government's accusation here.

Who’s Leading the Western Response to Russia’s Warbots? Estonia

A European leader in robotic autonomy turns its attention to the battlefield.

The small country of Estonia is leading the Western response to Russian ground robots. The tiny country of 1.3 million, known among tech enthusiasts for its innovative e-residency program and for hosting NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence, last week announced a new initiative to bring ground robots to Europe’s militaries.

According to an Aug. 2 statement from the Estonian Ministry of Defense, the country is working with Finland and Latvia to develop an unmanned ground robot in the hope of creating a “European standard” for future such machines.

NYT HAILS NEW JERSEY DEMOCRATS' PLAN FOR STATE-FUNDED FAKE NEWS

The state's lawmakers have embarked on a novel experiment to address a local news crisis: putting up millions of dollars in the state's most recent budget to pay for community journalism. While public television and radio stations have long received government funds, new media experts like Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute say they have not heard of any other efforts on this scale, with a state helping to pay for reporting projects among a range of news media, including for-profit outlets.

[...]Journalists and public officials described New Jersey's undertaking as once unthinkable, raising ethical concerns and stirring fears of government intrusion. Yet there has been little outcry, underscoring for many local journalism's precarious position and a growing willingness to experiment.

The legislation sets aside $5 million from the sale of old public television licenses, creating a nonprofit consortium that would fund reporting projects and bolster civic engagement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After Google's algorithms forcing conservative and controversial opinions under the proverbial "electronic bus", haven't we already had quite enough of this, thank you very much?!?

And for my tastes, the answer is a short "Hell, YES!!"

SILENCE ON U.S. MEDDLING ABROAD

Among the most fascinating aspects of the brouhaha over supposed Russian meddling in America’s electoral system is the total silence in the U.S. mainstream press about U.S. meddling in the political affairs of other countries.

Consider the mass outrage and indignation among the mainstream press that Russia would actually want to help a U.S. presidential candidate who favors normalizing relations with Russia over a candidate that was determined to do the opposite.

Why not the same outrage against the U.S. national-security establishment for helping its favorite people come to office in foreign countries?

Facebook bans Infowars for using ‘hate speech’ as Apple removes Alex Jones’ podcasts

Facebook has shut down InfoWars’ page saying the conservative news outlet used hate speech. An editor at the website says the social media giant failed to tell it what the offending posts were.

InfoWars Editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson said in a tweet that the account has been “permanently banned” for “unspecified” hate speech. Visitors to InfoWars page are now greeted with a message saying: “Sorry, this content isn't available right now”.

Describing the development as a “chilling precedent for free speech,” Watson said that Facebook did not tell the media organization what the offending posts were.

“To all other conservative news outlets – you are next. The great censorship purge has truly begun,” he wrote.

Global Housing Bubble Is Popping. Here Comes The “Reverse Wealth Effect”:

Just a few months ago, real estate was on fire. Prices were blowing past records set during the previous decade’s housing bubble as desperate buyers bought whatever was available at above the asking price while homeowners, confident that prices would keep rising, held out for the next big pop to sell. Notice on the following chart how the ascent steepens at the beginning of this year.

Then, as if someone flipped a switch, the trend shifted into reverse. Not just in the US but nearly everywhere. This list of recent headlines tells the tale:

Outcry over boxing champ Joseph Parker's closed session at Whanganui High School Maori & Pasifika only

A Whanganui High School event solely for Maori and Pasifika boys with boxing champ Joseph Parker has left parents outraged because of its alleged racial exclusion.

And Parker himself is considering pulling the plug.

The flier for the event stated Parker was coming to give a "closed motivational session for Maori and Pasifika boys" and their dads.

However, Parker said he had "absolutely no idea at any stage" the school planned to limit his visit on the basis of students' race or gender.

"I'm really disappointed they would do that. I'm even more disappointed the school would claim that they had done this at my request – when that is clearly untrue."

The flier was read by some parents as excluding all other ethnicities and girls.

Inside Rat Island, The Only Privately-Owned Island In New York City

Rat Island may not have rats, but it does have a one-of-a-kind story.

Rat Island is not, as the name might imply, some sort of stronghold for New York City’s infamously large population of rodents. In fact, despite the name, there’s never been evidence of a single rat on the island at all. Despite its unsavory name, Rat Island actually holds the distinction of being the only privately-owned island in New York City today.

Red Sox pitcher finds Tony La Russa's lost World Series ring in surprising place

Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa has enough rings from his baseball career to nearly fill one hand. He was a three-time World Series champion as a manager, winning one with the Oakland Athletics in 1989 and two more with the St. Louis Cardinals during the early 2000s. Of course, his Hall of Fame induction in 2014 came with a ring too, bringing his total to four.
