The Associated Press (@AP) August 21, 2017 Feds: Texas man tried planting bomb on Confederate statue HOUSTON (AP) A Houston man has been arrested after he was allegedly caught trying to plant explosives on a Confederate statue at a Houston park, authorities said Monday.

A Houston park ranger found Schneck holding two boxes with duct tape and wires as well as a bottle and a small tube containing compounds that tests later revealed were explosive materials, according to a criminal complaint. Schneck's arrest comes after ...
Can you really go blind by staring at the Sun?
Post Date: 2017-08-21 10:54:04 by no gnu taxes
Its possible, but the hazard is often exaggerated. Even at midday, a normal eye will only let in enough light to heat the retina by about 4°C. You need at least 10°C to cause thermal damage. Looking at the Sun during an eclipse for more than a minute can cause damage, because your pupils are more dilated during this, but it doesnt result in total blindness and isnt usually permanent. If the Sun is within 10 minutes of setting below a sea-level horizon, the more dangerous short-wavelength light is absorbed by the atmosphere and it should be quite safe to look at the Sun.

Antifa Protester Yvette Felarca Says Violence Against The Far-Right Is ‘Not A Crime’
Post Date: 2017-08-20 12:55:16 by A K A Stone
Yvette Felarca, the Berkeley area school teacher and militant left-wing protester responsible for organizing the riot at the University of California, Berkeley in February 2017, claims that violence against the far- right is not a crime. Felarca, who belongs to By Any Means Necessary, a far-left group, is currently facing assault charges after she was caught on video assaulting a white supremacist during a July 2016 rally in Sacramento, Cali. The school teacher and her compatriots engaged in violent clashes against members of the far-right Traditional Workers Party, which had a permit to march in the city. The violence between the two groups resulted in a ...

Post Date: 2017-08-20 12:24:19 by A K A Stone
The Washington Examiner reports: Among the eclectic throng of demonstrators in Boston on Saturday, a supporter of President Trump found himself surrounded by protesters who yelled profanities at him. A man wearing an Israeli flag as a cape can be seen in a video shared by Univisions Jessica Weiss, walking through a crowd of protesters.

IT staffers may have compromised sensitive data to foreign intelligence By Paul Sperry New York Post August 19, 2017 | 9:13pm Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data possibly including classified information could have been compromised and ...
Bannon plots Fox competitor, global expansion
Post Date: 2017-08-19 14:17:18 by Tooconservative
Unshaven and working from home in cargo shorts as he moves into "Bannon the Barbarian" mode, Steve Bannon is thinking bigger than Breitbart. Axios' Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he's going to start a network. Bannon's friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only. Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power.Now he has the means, motive and ...
Description of the SWAMP
Post Date: 2017-08-18 19:14:32 by U don't know me
Here is an excellent description of the SWAMP posted by Guest99 · 2 hours ago Trump claimed he will Drain the Swamp'. This goal and the thinking behind it is due to Bannon. With Bannon gone the Swamp has won. What's the Swamp? Foremost, its the military-security Deep State, who has been running America's many wars and coups, foreign and domestic, for decades. They want, of course, more wars and Bannon was in the way. Just as foremost, the Swamp is the financial empire of America run by ultra billionaires who hold vast monetary-industrial powers in the U.S. and around the world. A lot of these people live in shadowy penthouses of New York towers. Here's how it works: ...
Oregon governor signs gun confiscation bill into law
Post Date: 2017-08-18 18:49:27 by hondo68
Brown, a Democrat, signed the measure into law this week after it squeaked through the legislature. (Photo: Gov. Browns office) Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Wednesday approved Democrat-backed gun control legislation to establish Extreme Risk Protection Orders, forcing subjects to surrender their firearms. The law, SB 719A, allows police, or a member of a subjects family or household, to file a petition with the court which could lead to an order prohibiting firearms possession if it is believed they pose an imminent risk to themselves or others. The bill passed the Senate 17-11 in May and the House 31-28 last month, picking up only one Republican supporter along the way. Brown, a ...
BUSTED: Parents Catch FBI in Plot to Force Mentally Ill Son to Be a Right Wing Terrorist
Post Date: 2017-08-18 09:18:09 by Deckard
Its become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that theyve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies whove been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them. While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be. Through the hundreds of foiled terror plots the FBI has busted ...
West Virginia Supreme Court Expands DUI To Private Property
Post Date: 2017-08-18 08:53:31 by Deckard
West Virginians can be charged with drunk driving on their own private land, even if they represent no danger to others. The state Supreme Court of Appeals laid down this new precedent last month, overturning previous interpretations of the states driving under the influence (DUI) law. We hold that an individual may lose his/her drivers license if they are found driving a vehicle anywhere within the physical boundaries of West Virginia while under the influence of alcohol (and/or drugs), even if the vehicle is driven only upon private property not open to the general public, Chief Justice Menis E. Ketchum II wrote for the court. The ruling does not just apply to ...

Why Police Prefer Drug Raids Over Investigating Violent Crimes
Post Date: 2017-08-18 08:33:14 by Deckard
Last year, I reported on a case in which the Johnson County Sheriff's Office in Kansas had raided the home of a law-abiding, middle-class family in Kansas. The officers, arrayed in SWAT gear, terrorized the family and searched the house for hours, failing to find anything criminal. The raid was the result of a program used by the sheriff's office in which the police spend hours staking out gardening centers, identifying shoppers who buy hydroponic gardening equipment, and then proceeding to conduct SWAT raids on the homes of the alleged perpetrators who are assumed to be growing marijuana in their homes. The victims of this particular raid, Bob and Addie Harte, ...

Million Juggalo March to overlap with Mother of All Rallies in September
Post Date: 2017-08-17 19:54:28 by Tooconservative
We were kind of hoping that the wall-to-wall media coverage of white supremacists would die out sometime before fall, but its looking very possible that we might be watching Wolf Blitzer reporting earnestly on the Million Juggalo March in mid-September. Its been a while since we checked in on rap duo Insane Clown Posse, but the story remains essentially the same: fans of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, known as Juggalos, found themselves included in the FBIs National Gang Threat Assessment and have been fighting the stigma ever since. Theyve been planning their march on Washington for a year, but now it looks like their event is going to overlap with ...

The statue is located at the corner of West 69th Street and South Wolcott Avenue. Google Street View images from 2015 shot the statue ...
Poll: Strong majority opposes removing Confederate monuments
Post Date: 2017-08-17 16:38:15 by Tooconservative
Theres a reason Steve Bannon loves this issue. President Trump, by asking, Where does this all end Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln connects with the American people about their history, culture and traditions, he said. The race-identity politics of the left wants to say its all racist, Mr. Bannon added. Just give me more. Tear down more statues. Say the revolution is coming. I cant get enough of it. Hes got a strong useful wedge here if he and Trump can keep opinions about removing monuments and opinions about the alt-right distinct. That was a missed opportunity on Saturday. Trump could have used his ...
How Can We Learn from the Past If We Erase History?
Post Date: 2017-08-17 10:19:55 by Deckard
Removing monuments from the Civil War to erase history is a mistake. This wont be a popular opinion, and Im okay with that. Because for now, we still have freedom of speech. While I can understand why some people would strongly disagree, Id like to respectfully offer a different perspective. My opinion that those monuments should be left alone isnt because I support the horrible things that have been done in our history. Its exactly the opposite. Every countrys history has a dark spot in it. More than one, if were being honest. But the fact that we arent still mired in those dark places means that we have made strides toward becoming ...
Police Won't Say Whether Cops Caught Fabricating Charges Were Disciplined
Post Date: 2017-08-17 07:13:09 by Deckard
In Hartford, Connecticut, three state troopers stopped Michael Picard at a sobriety checkpoint in 2015, confiscating his pistol, pistol permit, and camera, according to a lawsuit Picard has now filed. The troopers also told him (falsely) that recording them was illegal, but they weren't aware the camera was continuing to record after they took it. On the video, they can reportedly be heard calling a local cop to ask if they had any "grudges" against Picard, who they knew to have organized a previous protest at the state capitol. After learning that the permit was valid, one of the troopers told the other two they had to "cover" themselves, and another responded, ...
Speeding is Good for You
Post Date: 2017-08-17 07:10:04 by Deckard
Speeding, like exercise, is good for you. It is lack of motion in both cases that ends up causing problems.This is no joke.First of all, speeding does not mean driving excessively fast. That is the shibboleth, the cliche, the tired and formulaic claptrap used to justify the roadside ritual of mulcting drivers almost at will because nearly every driver speeds at least a little bit every time he goes for a drive. That is to say, he drives in excess of the posted speed limit which is always set to ensure exactly that. Fish in a barrel. Its odd that this fact obvious to all largely goes by without any raising of hands, if not ...
How The Alt-Right Won The Battle Over Charlottesville
Post Date: 2017-08-17 03:31:23 by Tooconservative
The alt-right is a movement of people united by the common premise that white people deserve an identity politics of their own, and that Western civilization is inherently tied with white ethnicity. Theyre not a major movement; theyre a fringe group. Theyre extraordinarily loud on social media; they abuse their enemies, worship their perceived friends, and generate the feeling that they are far more of a powerful force than they actually are. Over the weekend, they went to Charlottesville for the same reason theyve gone to cities around the country: to gain attention. More specifically, they had three goals in mind. First, the alt-right wanted to grow its ranks by ...
Steve Bannon 'can't get enough' of the 'race-identity politics' of the Left
Post Date: 2017-08-17 02:01:56 by Tooconservative
Steve Bannon argued Wednesday that President Trump would benefit politically from his much-criticized response to the violent Charlottesville, Va., rally organized by white nationalists, claiming that liberals are engaging in "race-identity politics." "President Trump, by asking, Where does this all end,' connects with the American people about their history, culture and society," Bannon told the New York Times in an interview Wednesday. "The race-identity politics of the left wants to say it's all racist," Bannon, the White House chief strategist, added. "Just give me more. Tear down more statues. Say the revolution is coming.
