Chester police explained in a Sunday statement that responding officers were dispatched on Saturday at roughly 5 p.m. local time to a residential area near Widener University on the 900 block of E. 15th St. “for what was described to them as a riot.” Continue reading
End of the American Dream – by Michael Snyder
Last week, when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so.
It was a major news event, and it needed to be reported. But shouldn’t mass killings of Christians be given the same sort of media coverage? Sadly, we all know that doesn’t happen. Whenever there is a mass killing of Christians, it is usually entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Those that control the mainstream media consider Christians to be one of the main obstacles to “progress” in this country, and so any story that would put Christians in a positive or sympathetic light simply does not fit any of the narratives that they are pushing.
US President Donald Trump is the “insidious inspiration guiding the hand that pulled the trigger of the guns used to commit the mass slaying of Muslims in New Zealand,” according to Dennis Etler, an American political analyst who has a decades-long interest in international affairs.
Trump has said he doesn’t view white extremism as a rising threat even though many blame the terrorist massacre in New Zealand on Friday on his demonization of Muslims. Continue reading
Saw a still pic the day of the NZ “event” taking a selfie of himself, after he is bloody (slightly). He is in this video too. This video is said to be the rehearsal of the shooting. Only watched it once, need to feed the hounds.

The $1.1 billion spent to repair Oroville Dam is failing as water is seeping through the rebuilt spillway threatens new mass evacuations over the risk of the dam collapsing.
According to national dam expert Scott Cahill of Watershed Services of Ohio, Oroville Dam is on the same failure track as in 2017, with visible water seepage trickling from the foot of the dam and dozens of points along the dam’s principal spillway.

Mondweiss – by Jonathan Ofir
Last week, the German organization Jewish Voice for a Just peace in the Middle East received a peace prize from the city of Göttingen.
As the organization supports the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, the announcement of its nomination became a battleground, wherein prominent Jewish leaders tarnished its members as anti-Semites, suggesting that they were the ‘wrong kind of Jews’. The mayor and the president of the Göttingen university withdrew their support and cancelled the booking of halls for receptions. Nonetheless the jury stuck to its decision, and crowdfunded a prize of 28,000 Euros, which the organization will donate to human rights organizations in Palestine as well as to the liberal Israeli +972 Magazine.

Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser reminded local law enforcement that they swore an “oath to uphold the rule of law” in a statement Thursday. The reminder comes after numerous counties have passed resolutions denouncing “red flag” gun control legislation that’s expected to pass.
House Bill 1177 would allow family members or law enforcement to petition a judge to issue a temporary extreme risk protection order (ERPO) for a person thought to be a threat, after which the person’s weapons could be temporarily seized for up to a year. Continue reading
Public Finance International – by Simone Rensch
The US political system is “too broken” to address the “demographic bomb” it faces – with older people expected to outnumber the number of children under the age of 18 in the country in 20 years.
This is according to Marc Goldwein, a policy director at a top think tank, who told PF International an ageing population was one of the US’s most “significant economic challenges. Continue reading
