'Sounds about white': Megyn Kelly blasted for defending blackface

Megyn Kelly doesn’t understand why blackface is offensive.
While discussing offensive Halloween costumes on Megyn Kelly Today with an all-white panel including Melissa Rivers and Jenna Bush Hager, the NBC host defended white people painting their skin black if it’s part of a costume because it was OK to do so when she was a child some 40 years ago.

Google does not fall under news aggregators bill, says regulatorMore:

Google is not covered by the draft law intending to limit foreign participation in news aggregators, Deputy Head of the Russian telecom regulator Roskomnadzor Vadim Subbotin told TASS on Monday.

"Traffic at the time of considering the issue regarding its inclusion into the register of news aggregators was insufficient," Subbotin said. "It is not included into the register of news aggregators now," he noted.

Google "is not covered" at present by the submitted draft law in case it is approved, Subbotin added.

Authors of the draft law say in the explanatory note that "restrictions are offered for the purpose of preventing the threat to public order in Russia and creating thereby comfortable conditions for development of the civil society." Provisions of the bill stipulate a six-month term to bring constituent documents of companies in compliance with new rules.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how Google's Russian attorneys got around this one.

SA Lays Out Plans To Use Facial Recognition For Domestic Flights

The TSA has released its roadmap to use biometrics technology in the coming years. The Verge reports:

Customs and Border Protection has been using facial recognition to screen non-U.S. residents on international flights since 2015, a project that was expedited by the Trump administration. Last year, the U.S. government laid out its plans to start expanding the screening tools to U.S. citizens, which would require them to undergo facial scans when they leave the country through a system called the Biometric Pathway. Today's news lays out how the TSA will adopt the same technology, partnering with CBP on biometrics for international travelers, expanding security operations to TSA Precheck members, and eventually, using facial recognition to verify domestic travelers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just peachy, TSA; now, instead of having to be at the airport 3 hours earlier than your actual departure or arrival, travelers will need to factor in another 2 hours, if the systems go down or misbehave in any way.

Unbelievably – Rothkopf has the audacity to criticize Trump for having “repeatedly shown great fondness for foreign leaders—even despots and known murderers, human rights abusers and criminals”, while Rothkopf himself is literally a paid agent working to disseminating propaganda for one of the most repressive regimes on the planet, one that does much of the Saudis’ dirty work for it in Washington. And the fact that the Daily Beast makes no disclosure of any of this is what makes this practice – having paid lobbyists and consultants for foreign regimes and corporations masquerade as objective and neutral analysts of the news – such a massive journalistic scandal and fraud.

Humanity has created more than 9 billion tons of plastic since the 1950s, when large-scale production of the material first took off. Of that total, a staggering 76 percent has gone to waste. These days, plastics are found in most table salt, marine life and the deepest parts of the ocean. So it any surprise that they have made it into our bodies, too?

A small study has detected microplastics in human excrement for the first time, raising larger questions about how the tiny particles can affect our health.

Plastic particles were found in all the stool samples of eight participants from Finland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, the UK and Austria, researchers from the Medical University of Vienna and the Environment Agency Austria found. On average, 20 microplastic particles per 10g of stool were detected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is officially horrible.

As consumers, we need to demand better packaging for our food, that doesn't have the option of potentially killing us off when we eat the food inside!!

An explosive device was found at the Westchester County, New York, home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros on Monday afternoon.

In a statement to NPR, the Bedford Police Department said an employee of the house found a suspicious package in the mailbox. They opened it, revealing what "appeared to be an explosive device." The employee placed the package in a nearby wooded area and alerted authorities.

State and federal authorities responded to the scene in Katonah, a hamlet in the town of Bedford. A bomb squad was able to safely detonate the device, The New York Times reports.

After authorities were contacted, an "extensive investigation" involving the Bedford Police Department, the Westchester County Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the FBI, commenced.

The case has been handed over to the Joint Terrorism Task Force Division of the FBI, the Bedford Police Department says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if Soros himself ordered a fake bomb planted in his mail box, to garner some sympathy and encouragement for his "open borders" support, seeing just how well that has gone in Europe, and also seeing the United States under threat of a well-planned and nearly executed invasion, scheduled to hit the US just about at mid-terms here in the US:

Body parts belonging to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to Sky News sources, who added that he had been “cut up” and his face “disfigured.”
The sources’ claim echoes a statement by Do?u Perinçek, leader of the left-wing Vatan party on Monday night. Perinçek told Turkish television that Khashoggi’s “body parts” had been recovered from a well in the Saudi consul’s garden, and added that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would explain the findings later on Tuesday.

The news comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Saudi officials reveal the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s remains, after the Saudi government admitted Khashoggi had been murdered, albeit in a “fist fight” with officials inside the consulate in Istanbul.

"Jamal Khashoggi's body parts have been discovered" - Sources have told @AlexCrawfordSky "grisly details" about how Jamal Khashoggi's body parts were discovered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While it is certainly not beyond Saudi Arabian royalty to plan such an event (they kill women and children routinely in Yemen, and think not a thing of it), why has the Turkish government not circulated the pictures which would authenticate this alleged find?!?

So, Turkish government, where, please, is the actual evidence this happened?!?

Because without it, your collective credibility is in tatters, if this is some sort of attempt at making the optics of this alleged assassination look even worse than they already are.

A judge in California on Monday upheld a landmark verdict in a case brought by a terminal cancer patient who successfully argued his illness resulted from his exposure to Monsanto's weedkiller RoundUp, but slashed the damages the agrochemical giant was originally required to pay from $289 million down to just $78 million and said she would order a retrial if former groundskeeper Dewayne "Lee" Johnson rejects the payout.

"The evidence presented to this jury was, quite frankly, overwhelming... We are happy the jury's voice was acknowledged by the Court, even if slightly muted."
—Johnson's team

Jurors had come forward to demand that San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bolanos respect their historic verdict, issued in August. The judge had been considering a request for a retrial from Monsanto, but decided (pdf) instead to cut the punitive damages from $250 to $39 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder the terms and conditions under which Judge
Bolanos made that big reduction in the judgement.

For a company like the former Monsanto, $39 million is only a slap on the wrist.

And also, please note that no one in the Monsanto group will spend any jail time; how, please, is this humanly possible, when it has been known for years that glyphosate is a carcinogen?

Monsanto only tested rats with Glyphosate-raised corn for only 90 days, because it knew that it was after the 90 day cycle, the damage to the rat's systems would start appearing.

They got Dr. Seralini's research, proving that the chemical had negative consequences after 90 days, redacted from a highly respected scientific journal, and, Dr. Seralini had to go back to court for the damages this act caused his professional reputation.

He won his case, and got the article on this damage republished.

Paid Protest Firm "Crowds On Demand" Sued In $23 Million Extortion Plot

"Paid protesters are real," writes the Los Angeles Times, after a lawsuit filed by a Czech investor against a business rival spotlighted the seedy, and very real business of people hired to express fake outrage, support, and everything in between.

According to a lawsuit filed by investor Zdenek Bakala, Prague-based investment manager Pavol Krupa hired Beverly hills company Crowds on Demand (COD) to stage a protest near Bakala's home in Hilton Head, SC.

In the Bakala case, Crowds on Demand is accused of spreading misinformation through a website, putting on protests and organizing a phone and email campaign targeting several U.S. institutions with ties to Bakala, who got an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business and had an estimated net worth topping $1 billion earlier this decade, according to Forbes. -LA Times

Crowds on Demand provides pop-up "protests, rallies, flash mobs, paparazzi events and other inventive PR stunts," according to its website.

Photo Emerges Of Georgia's Dem Governor Nominee Burning State Flag

"A photo emerged on Monday night that showed Stacey Abrams, Georgia's Democratic candidate for governor, burning the state's flag during a protest at Georgia's Capitol in 1992 while she was a freshman at Spelman College in Atlanta.

"Ms. Abrams’s role in the protest, which took place around the end of her freshman year at Spelman College in Atlanta, has begun to emerge on social media on the eve of her first debate Tuesday with her Republican opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp," The New York Times reported. "Mr. Kemp and his allies have sought to portray her as 'too extreme for Georgia.'"

The photo of Abrams burning Georgia's state flag "appeared in an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in June 1992" and showed Abrams "standing with students burning the Georgia state flag at the state Capitol."

Abrams' campaign released a statement on Monday addressing her flag burning, noting that Georgia's flag at the time partially incorporated the Confederate battle flag.

Thanks, Common Core: ACT Scores for Class of 2018 Worst in Decades

The creators of the ACT test announced on Wednesday that scores for the class of 2018 are the worst reported in decades. Math scores, in fact, are in freefall among ACT-tested U.S. high school graduates, falling to their lowest mark in 14 years, according to The Condition of College and Career Readiness 2018, the ACT’s annual report.

The report includes ACT test results from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

"The percentage of ACT-tested graduates who met or surpassed the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in math—suggesting they are ready to succeed in a first-year college algebra class—fell to its lowest level since 2004," the report declared, with only 40 percent of 2018 graduates meeting the benchmark, "down from a high of 46% in 2012."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless, and until, Common Core is thrown out of the window, and replaced by a system which encourages math, critical thinking, and mastery of difficult subjects, our kids will continue to fail in real life.

Looking at these numbers, were I a parent with a kid in school, and seeing those numbers, I would pull my kid out of that failing school so quickly that the Principal would be spinning in their chair.

Failed education, unless it is replaced and repaired by extraordinary methods, translates into failed life skills for most kids. That is why parents have to be involved and committed, to make sure their kids are getting the best education possible.

Proud Boy Persecution Shows Street Fighting Has Arrived In America. Next, the Military?

The level of political violence in the U.S. is rising. The main reason for this, of course: the license given by our Establishment to the Antifa movement of Communist thugs. But will violence spread from the streets to the soldiers? I know, it sounds crazily apocalyptic. But it’s being discussed in Britain.

Twice recently—in Charlottesville last year, and in Portland, Oregon two weeks ago—we have seen municipal police forces deliberately stood down by their political superiors so that Antifa could control the streets. The Establishment’s media shills either find a way to frame the subsequent violence as someone else’s fault, as at Charlottesville, or else they just ignore it, as in Portland.

That is the context in which to evaluate the clashes in New York City on October 12 between Antifa activists and Gavin McInnes’s Proud Boys.

Archaeologists have found what they believe to be the world’s oldest intact shipwreck at the bottom of the Black Sea where it appears to have lain undisturbed for more than 2,400 years.
The 23-metre (75ft) vessel, thought to be ancient Greek, was discovered with its mast, rudders and rowing benches all present and correct just over a mile below the surface. A lack of oxygen at that depth preserved it, the researchers said.

Chick-fil-A sponsoring Pittsburgh kids’ run. But officials, in LGBT solidarity, want deal shot down.

Once word got out last month that Chick-fil-A was the title sponsor for next year’s Kids Marathon in Pittsburgh — a mile race that comes the day before the Pittsburgh Marathon — some folks got upset.
The Post-Gazette reported that all nine city council members signed a letter asking the marathon to trash the deal — one that puts the fast-food franchise’s name on the kids’ race, WESA-FM said.
Pittsburgh Public Schools traditionally puts together teams for the kids’ run, the station said. But that won’t be happening next May if the school board’s resolution — which bans district employees and schools from participating in “an official capacity” in the kids’ race — passes this week, the paper reported.

WATCH: Amnesty International Makes Creep-tastic Video Showing 'Sleeping Beauty' Being Sexually Assaulted

Amnesty International is jumping on the anti-Disney bandwagon — like celebrities Kristen Bell and Keira Knightley — calling out "fairy tales" for anti-feminist scenarios, where damsels in distress under an evil spell need the help of dashing princes to regain consciousness.
But the nongovernmental organization went way beyond merely criticizing Disney's heroines. They created their own "fractured fairy tale" in which a prince sexually assaults a sleeping princess, first kissing her and then sliding his hand up her leg, molesting her as she sleeps — a sort-of parody of "Sleeping Beauty" or "Snow White" that comes off less instructive and more, well, creepy.

The Easiest Way To Support Israeli Charities

very year in April, Americans complete their taxes, which include for many, lists of donations to tax-exempt charitable organizations. As an American Jew, my wife and I know and support great charities for Israel, such as AFMDA (American Friends of Magen David Adom) and FIDF (Friends of the IDF.) But I had often wondered, what about the other excellent charities in Israel that are virtually unknown in the U.S.? How do they survive and how can we support them?Cause:Israel is the brainchild of Dr. Amir Give’on, who developed the Jewish crowdfunding site, Jewcer. Give’on is a mechanical and aerospace engineer, a professional geek who is driven to search for new ideas to benefit the Jewish people and Israel. His drive stems from his passion for Israel advocacy and connecting Israelis with Jewish Americans.

Heroic Holocaust Revisionist Dr. Robert Faurisson Has Passed

Dr. Robert Faurisson (1929 – 2018) was born in England to a French father and a Scottish mother, and spent his adult life in France. There he was hounded and persecuted for 40 years due to his outspoken views, which were backed up by scholarly research. He vehemently denied the existence of homicidal gas chambers and pointed out the fraudulent nature of Anne Frank’s Diary, acting as a serious thorn in the side of Holocaust promoters around the world.
The alleged Hitlerite gas chambers and the alleged genocide of the Jews constitute one and the same historical lie, which made possible a gigantic financial-political fraud, the principal beneficiaries of which are the State of Israel and international Zionism, and whose principal victims are the German people — but not their leaders — and the entire Palestinian people.” ~ Robert Faurisson, the famous “60 words sentence”, formulated in 1980.
