Video: Pathetic Antifa Protesters Can’t Even Explain What Fascism Actually Is

“I certainly count myself as Antifa. We do not think that fascists and ultra right-wingers, the alt-right, deserve to have a platform,” one made claimed, making clear that this new leftist orthodoxy does indeed want to CENSOR all speech that goes against their political beliefs.

Another Antifia protesters, asked to define what fascism actually is, laughably claimed, “I don’t really want to get into all of that history and stuff,” before adding, “I don’t want to talk about it right now.”

Phillips then attempted to engage the man again, noting how serious an accusation of being a Nazi or fascist actually is.

“That’s a serious thing though, to call somebody a Nazi and a fascist, but you have to know what it is though if you’re going to call them that,” Phillips can be heard saying before the protester decided to call him a Nazi as well.

Eventually the protesters decided that they had had enough of legitimate questions and refused to continue the conversation.

Drug users shouldn't be labelled “junkies" or "addicts," George Soros’ Global Commission on Drug Policy has said, amid complaints that drug users are stigmatized. Instead, they should be called a “person who uses drugs.”
The commission, backed by Virgin tycoon Richard Branson and former Liberal Democrats leader Nick Clegg, says drug users are victims of discrimination. It called for an end to negative language around their habits, to ensure that their human rights are respected.

Day 1

Young Goddesses meet for learning, work, and enjoyment. Two apparate within beautiful human-like bodies.

Goddess 2: Oh mySelf! What is that thing on your cheek?!

Goddess 1: Hideously ugly, I know. It’s called a zit. I’ve heard of these, but never got one.

G2: How did it get there?!

G1: It’s a localized infection caused by my relative imbalances recently: too much of some actions and not enough of others.

G2: What are you going to do with it?

G1: (smiling) After topical treatment failed, I now need to wait about a day, then use a tool to remove the infected material. I have to wait, otherwise the infection might go deeper and become a bigger problem.

G2: Good plan. I’ve heard about zits, but have never seen one.

Kissinger describes atmosphere within the Trump White House as a war between Jews and non-Jews

Henry Kissinger described the relationship between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump's Jewish family members as a "war between the Jews and the non-Jews". The former Secretary of State ... made the remark to the author Michael Wolff when describing the White House feuds between Mr Bannon and Mr Trump's Jewish family members, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Mr Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law, was given a prominent role devising a new plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. "For Trump, giving Israel to Kushner was not only a test, it was a Jewish test ... Saddling him with an impossible hurdle for being Jewish - and, too, defaulting to the stereotyping belief in the negotiating powers of Jews," Mr Wolff wrote in his book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" ...

Russia, France Slam US Over Emergency UN Meeting on Iran

An emergency meeting at the UN Security Council on the subject of week-long protests in Iran saw a series of speeches, including the US reiterating its previous public statements backing demonstrators and threatening Iran, and other nations wondering why this was worth an emergency meeting. French Ambassador Francois Delattre insisted the Iran protests had nothing to do with international peace and security, warning against "attempts to exploits this crisis for personal ends," which many see as a direct rebuke of the US. Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya was even more frank, saying the meeting amounted to the US abusing its position at the UN to "mess with Iran," and noting the UN didn't have any emergency meetings after the US crackdowns in Ferguson.

TRUMP’S FAILED COUP IN IRAN

Listen to the state-'guided' US media this past week and you'd believe a series of spontaneous anti-government protests broke out across Iran. The protests, according to President Donald Trump and his Israeli allies, were caused by `anger over Iran's spending billions on wars in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon and helping the Palestinian movement Hamas.' Trump tweeted that Iranians were finally rising up against what he called their hated, brutal regime. Talk about manufactured news ... High unemployment is a result of US economic warfare and bullying other nations not to do business with Iran, producing 13 percent overall unemployment and a 40 percent inflation rate. The latter and wide-scale corruption were the spark that ignited the latest riots.

Top secret Zuma satellite DID fall into the Pacific after SpaceX launch, government officials confirm

A top secret billion-dollar spy satellite plummeted into the Indian Ocean after a SpaceX mission over the weekend, but Elon Musk's company has insisted they are not to blame.

The satellite, codenamed Zuma, launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida Sunday night, but it reportedly failed to remain in orbit, officials said Wednesday.

The classified intelligence satellite, built by Northrop Grumman Corp, failed to separate from the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket and is assumed to have broken up or plunged into the sea, said two officials, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.

A U.N.-BACKED POLICE FORCE CARRIED OUT A MASSACRE IN HAITI. THE KILLINGS HAVE BEEN ALMOST ENTIRELY IGNORED.

AT 5 O’CLOCK on the morning of November 13, more than 200 Haitian police officers raided the Grand Ravine area of Port-au-Prince. There was a series of loud explosions, followed by gunfire. For the next six hours, the commotion didn’t stop. The neighborhood was under siege.

What had started as an anti-gang operation in a poor and largely forgotten neighborhood — in a poor and largely forgotten country — ended in the summary execution of innocent civilians on a school campus.

The police officers were working with the United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti. It was launched in October, a reboot of a previous mission that had begun in 2004, when thousands of U.N. troops were sent to Haiti following a coup d’etat, tasked in part with restoring stability and reinforcing national police capacities.

WW3 Fears Spiked After Ground Shaking Explosion Occurred Over Russia

A mysterious flash over Russia has spiked fears that the third world war has begun. Many were worried that the ground shaking explosion over Russia was that of the United States striking North Korea with a weapon of mass destruction.

According to the Daily Mail, the phenomenon was seen and felt over thousands of miles in Russia but was especially evident in three regions: Bashkortostan, Udmurtia, and Tatarstan. The flash was so bright, that witnesses said it turned the night into day.

Although some think the flash was nothing more than a meteor, others were concerned. “Probably it was the testing of some military weapon if even the ground was shaking,” said Firaya Zaripova commenting early Monday morning. “I saw the flash in Menzelinsk. There was also the sound of an explosion and then a vibration, I felt it,” said Ilnaz Shaykhraziev.

Pentagon Program to Revive Afghan Economy Failed to Account for $675Mln

The US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said that the Department of Defense's program had spent hundreds of millions to revive Afghan economy, but can't provide reliable data on where the money actually went.

A US Department of Defense program called the Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO) spent $675 million on the Afghan economy from 2011 to 2014, but left few records to show where the money went, a report said.

"DOD was unable to provide reliable data showing the extent to which TFBSO projects created jobs, facilitated foreign direct investments, increased exports, or increased Afghan government revenues," the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) said on Tuesday.

Human muscle tissue grown from stem cells: US study

Working human muscle has been grown from stem cells in the lab in a breakthrough that holds promise for sufferers of degenerative muscular diseases, scientists said on Tuesday.

The team from Duke University in North Carolina said they were the first to achieve this feat using adult skin or blood cells which were "reprogrammed" into a juvenile, versatile state.

These are called "induced pluripotent stem cells" or iPSCs. Like naturally-occurring stem cells found in embryos, they can become any other type of human cell.

In this case, the iPSCs were coaxed into becoming skeletal muscle cells, which grew into "functioning human skeletal muscle," the team reported in the science journal Nature Communications.

"It's taken years of trial and error, making educated guesses and taking baby steps to finally produce functioning human muscle from pluripotent stem cells," study co-author Lingjun Rao said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! If these reports prove true, this technology will surely be a boon to humankind.

NEW ANALYSIS SHOWS FEDERAL MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION COULD RAISE $130 BILLION, ADD 1 MILLION JOBS BY 2025

As opposed to the current patchwork of states that have legalized either medical marijuana, its recreational use, or both, the analysis looked at what could happen if the U.S. government made it legal to sell marijuana nationwide and included these major findings:

If full legalization occurred in all 50 states today, there would be an excess of 782,000 jobs, and would increase to 1.1 million jobs by 2025.
Full legalization would result in more legal businesses participating in the market, more consumers participating in the legal market, and more employees on official payrolls, resulting in $4 billion in payroll taxes. By 2025, payroll deductions would increase to $5.9 billion.
Assuming a sales tax at the federal level was implemented at 15%, the total tax revenues from 2017–2025 would theoretically be $51.7 billion. This amount of revenue would be entirely new revenue to the U.S. Treasury, as there are currently no federal sales or excise taxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, but you see: this... would be logical.

And, of course, by working against the legalisation of marijuana, Jeff Sessions understands that his "good ol' boys" will profit even more extensively from the private prisons in which they are involved:
