$1.2 Million Bail for Man Who Struck Protesters Blocking Highway

Authored by Zachary Stieber via The Epoch Times

The man who struck two protesters blocking a highway in Seattle saw his bail set at $1.2 million on Monday.

Dawit Kelete, a black man, was captured on video footage swerving around vehicles that protesters had angled across the highway before hitting two women, one of whom died.

Kelete was being held on suspicion of vehicular assault before the bail was set.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has yet to file charges against Kelete. It says it’s waiting for additional required information from the Washington State Patrol.

A charging decision is expected by Wednesday afternoon, spokesman Casey McNerthney said.

Kelete’s lawyer, John Henry Browne, said the crash was a “horrible, horrible accident” and was not intentional.

Caroline Glick: Edward Said, Prophet of Political Violence in America

Twenty years ago, on July 3, 2000, an incident occurred along the Lebanese border with Israel that, at the time, seemed both bizarre and, in the broad span of things, unimportant. But with the hindsight of 20 years, it was a seminal moment and a harbinger for the mob violence now taking place in many parts of America.

That day, Columbia University professor Edward Said was photographed on the Hezbollah-controlled Lebanese side of border with Israel throwing a rock at an Israel Defense Forces watchtower 30 feet away.

Said, who passed away in 2003, was no mere professor. He was the superstar of far-Left intellectuals. Even better, he was at once both a professor and a member of a terrorist organization. Said served not only as an academic, but as a member of the Palestine National Council, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terror group’s formal governing apparatus.

Still, his action was strange. The PLO had ostensibly forsworn terrorism seven years earlier, when it embarked on a peace process with Israel. True, since then, Palestinian terrorism had risen to unprecedented heights, with more Israelis killed by Palestinian terrorists between 1993 and 2000 than had been killed over the previous 15 years. But Said himself insisted that he was a man of peace. So why did he choose to get photographed throwing a rock at Israeli soldiers protecting their border?

To understand his action, it is necessary to understand Said’s intellectual record…

Columbus Statue Removed From California Capitol Rotunda

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Crews carried out a statue of Christopher Columbus from the center of the California Capitol rotunda on Tuesday, three weeks after legislative leaders announced it would be removed.

It’s the latest statue of Columbus and other colonial figures to be toppled or taken down in the U.S. and beyond, following the uproar over racism after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Baltimore protesters threw a statue of the Italian navigator into the city’s harbor last Saturday.

‘Complete Vindication’: Appeals Court Reinstates Anti-Male Bias Lawsuit Against Oberlin

Oberlin College likely discriminated against a male student when it found him guilty of sexual assault based on his female sexual partner allegedly saying “I am not sober,” a federal appeals panel ruled 2-1 last week.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court’s decision that found no sex-based discrimination in the private college’s judgment against “John Doe.” It remanded the case back to U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver nearly a year after John and Oberlin submitted their appellate briefs.

Even the dissenting opinion agreed that John has a “colorable claim” on the first prong of the “erroneous outcome” test for Title IX violations: “casting doubt on the accuracy of his disciplinary proceeding’s outcome.”

As the company makes new commitments in response to renewed public criticism, it is worth reviewing carefully how the company’s actions measure up to its words. In many cases, as documented below, Facebook failed to keep its promises,” read the memo obtained by The Post.

And instead of citing the usual anonymous sources, the report cited officials from various nonprofit groups who claimed that officials from the DoJ and FTC had met with them over complaints that TikTok had violated an agreement reached with the two agencies in 2019.

Exclusive: DOJ and FBI Claim They Cannot Provide Documents Related to Seth Rich and Clinton Emails Until After 2020 Election

CIA Involvement in the Creation of the Russia Hack and Seth Rich Cover-up is now the focus of Group requesting the truth behind Trump-Russia collusion sham.

In June 2016, Ellen Nakashima, a Deep State favorite from the Washington Post, released a reportthat the Democrat National Committee (DNC) had been hacked by Russia. The firm that validated this was Crowdstrike and its President Shawn Henry confirmed the claims. In December 2016, Ms. Nakashima followed up her reporting with the outlandish claim that the CIA had determined that Russia hacked the DNC because Russia wanted Trump to win the election. Nakashima also reported that the the Intel Community had determined that Russia also sent the emails to WikiLeaks. This position was reinforced by the Mueller gang in their efforts to have President Trump removed from office.

Ghislaine Should be on Suicide Watch: Former MDC Warden

A former warden at the jail holding Ghislaine Maxwell says the accused Jeffrey Epstein accomplice should be on suicide watch — as her case is ‘too explosive to risk her killing herself behind bars,’ reports the New York Post.

New: WH Conducting Leak Investigation Into Who Told NY Times About Russia-Taliban Bounty Intel — Narrowed Down to 10 Possible People

A few weeks ago The New York Times published a story claiming that Russia secretly offered bounties to Taliban forces to kill US troops, citing “officials briefed on the matter.”

President Trump last week dismissed the New York Times report on the GRU-Taliban allegations.

“Nobody briefed or told me, VP Pence, or Chief of Staff Mark Meadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an “anonymous source” by the Fake News New York Times.” Trump said in a pair of tweets Sunday morning.

The White House is conducting a leak investigation into who told reporters about the Russia-Taliban bounty suspicions and they have narrowed it down to fewer than 10 people.

The “Second Wave” Is Here as Expected, Bill Gates Says This One Will Get Our Attention

Bill Gates is truly sadistic. After saying we had “pandemic one” and will have “pandemic two,” he says the “next time” will get attention. Right after he says it, he and Melinda Gates smile in glee at the carnage they are about to unleash on the rest of us.

These two humans are insane sociopaths. Watch the interview below with Forbes and the Gates. They have no compassion or a fundamental understanding of what it means to be human. Now that states are locking down again, as we’ve been warning based on the media’s fear-mongering, the second wave has arrived.

Watch Melinda Gates laugh as she talks about ebola arrived in Lagos, a populous state like it’s hilarious that people are going to get sick and die. “You know, we’ll have to prepare for the next one,” Gates says. “That, you know, I’d say is, ah, will get attention this time.”

Gates also says he hopes the United States will “step up” when it comes to the coronavirus vaccine. It will be mandatory. And it will cause damages to an untold number of people. Melinda Gates even begins by admitting the World Health Organization isn’t perfect, but we should all submit to their rule over our bodies and allow them to control our minds and so whatever they want.

The one positive thing is the dislike to like ratio on this video on YouTube. Far more people are disgusted with these people than not. Perhaps there is hope for humanity after all. Hey Gates: We do not consent. We will not comply.

The Gates also talk about the vaccine with glee. They know exactly what kind of terror they plan to unleash on the rest of us.

The End of Fluoridation is in Sight

The evidence of neurotoxic harm from water fluoridation has been mounting at an unprecedented rate in recent years, and has quickly become the most urgent reason to end the practice as soon as possible. A cavity can easily be filled, but damage to a child’s brain is permanent.

A large body of government-funded research now indicates that fluoride is neurotoxic and is associated with lowered IQ in children and a significant increase in ADHD diagnosis and related behaviors in children at doses experienced in fluoridated communities. Experts in the field have likened the size of the effect to that from lead.

This includes over 200 animal studies showing that prolonged exposure to varying levels of fluoride can damage the brain, 65 human studies linking moderately high fluoride exposures with reduced intelligence, three human studies linking fluoride exposure with impaired fetal brain development, and seven Mother-Offspring studies linking fluoride exposure during pregnancy to reduced IQ in offspring.

Over the past year, we’ve also seen unprecedented new science from Canada and the USA showing fluoride harms the developing brain from exposures due primarily to artificial water fluoridation at the “optimal level.” Several of these high-quality studies were funded by the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (formerly the National Institutes of Health).

Strongest Studies Published Over the Past Year

Seven studies published in 2019 and 2020 are among the strongest yet, and are obviously relevant to water fluoridation as they were conducted in communities with what the ADA considers the “optimal level” of fluoride in drinking water. These include:…

Trump’s July 4th Birthday Gift to America

Fake news media are masters of illusion. Their celebratory reporting deceived corporations into believing a majority of Americans support Black Lives Matter’s absurd demands. Therefore, corporations wrote several million dollar please-don’t-attack-my-business checks to BLM. Corporate CEO’s had their advertising agencies produce TV commercials telling blacks that white America sucks and blacks deserve to demand anything they want.

I was stunned to see Christian political activist Ralph Reed say America should launch a civil rights agenda. What the heck is brother Reed talking about? America gifted the first black president two terms. Oprah is worth $2.6 billion. Reed’s opinion is a perfect example of the deceptive power of fake news media. Anyone watching TV these days could easily conclude that blacks are suffering the same racial injustice they did in the 1950s. This is an outrageous lie promoted by Democrats and fake news media.

During his speech, Trump called BLM a domestic terrorist hate group and vowed to stop their dismantling America. Trump is the most powerful voice of the free world.

Perhaps now, we will not see so many corporations on their knees in worship to BLM thugs.

Tucker Carlson: Can the Left Lead a Nation it Hates?

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday showed a montage of TV commentators slamming President Trump for talking about America’s greatness during his July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore.

The emphasis on white privilege, racism, slavery and stealing land betrayed a deep hatred of the nation, Carlson said.

So the logical question was: “Can you really lead a country that you hate?

“These people actually hate America,” he said, but “they desperately want to control America.

“What kind of parent would you be if you hated your children?” he asked. “It would not work. Loving the people you lead is the most important prerequisite of leadership.”

The leftists, he said, “despise this country,” which is “disqualifying.”

“We cannot let them run this country, because they hate it.”

University Researcher Forced Out for Highlighting Facts Showing No Racial Bias in Police Shootings

A senior researcher at Michigan State University was effectively fired after sharing facts from a study conducted last year that conclusively proved there is no widespread racial bias in police shootings.

Physicist Stephen Hsu was forced to resign from his position as vice president of Research and Innovation after being hounded by a Twitter mob for using facts to counter their claims that police are systemically racist.

Hsu interviewed MSU Psychology professor Joe Cesario last month, who has found from extensive research that “the race of the officer doesn’t matter when it comes to predicting whether black or white citizens are shot.”

Violent Crime is Surging Dramatically in Major Cities All Over America

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com

What we are witnessing all over the country right now is incredibly sad. In the aftermath of the tragic death of George Floyd, it would have been wonderful to see the entire nation unite behind an effort to make our society less violent, more just and more peaceful. But instead, we have seen a tremendous explosion of violence and lawlessness that doesn’t seem likely to end any time soon.

Why is the Deep State Intent on Killing Roger Stone?

One has to wonder just what kind of set-up was decided for Roger Stone. Mr. Stone was indicted for lying to Congress despite the failure of Mueller to find any underlying crime for Stone to lie about. At trial, prosecutors provided evidence that Stone tried (unsuccessfully) to learn the content of the announced Wikileaks disclosures (which is not a crime). Mueller criminalized perfectly legal political activities in the indictment and conviction of Stone.

Stone was the last victim of Mueller’s witch hunt, after several others including Stone’s friend, Paul Manafort, was tried and convicted. Proof has now come out that Manafort did not do everything he was charged with doing. In fact, a New York judge cited double jeopardy and dismissed state fraud charges against him. There was zero evidence that Paul Manafort was involved in Trump/Russia collusion. John and Tony Podesta, along with Hillary Clinton, were very involved in the Uranium One sellout to Russia and were focused on facilitators of Russian influence in this country,but were never charged.

Electronic Payments International hints that the whole new ecosystem is referred to as the Pan European Payment System (PEPSI), and is said to be backed by the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Commission (EC). What’s more, it is being hinted that PEPSI could one day even replace national payment schemes. Simply put, if enforced, PEPSI could be the biggest threat for card networks such as VISA and MasterCard.

Hungarian Retail Trade Falls in May But Shows Signs of Recovery

According to the latest data from the Central Statistics Office, retail trade in Hungary fell by an adjusted 2.1 percent in May compared with the same month of 2019, but officials are confident that barring a resurgence of coronavirus cases the sector will have fully recovered by June, conservative daily Magyar Hirlap reports.

Detailed data shows that in May, food retail rose by 1.8 percent, non-food retail also rose by 0.7 percent and in fact the overall decline was due to a sharp, 13.8 reduction in fuel sales. In the first five months of the year, retail rose by 1.5 percent year-on-year.

Analysis of the data also showed that without the intervening pandemic, retail volume would have increased by 6.5 percent, but the restrictions put in place resulted in an 8.6 percent decline, with the sum of the two giving the overall 2.1 percent fall.

Killing Free Speech in Austria

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) recently published its sixth monitoring report on Austria.

ECRI, which describes itself as “independent”, is the human rights monitoring body of the Council of Europe — not to be confused with the European Union. The Council of Europe is composed of 47 member states, including all of the 27 European Union member states.

ECRI is an unelected body with members designated by their governments (one for each member state) who are supposed to have “in-depth knowledge in the field of combating intolerance… and recognised expertise in dealing with racism, xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance”. It was founded in 1994 by the heads of state of the Council of Europe with the mandate, among other things, to “review member States’ legislation, policies and other measures to combat racism, xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance, and their effectiveness”.

Thanks in large part to the efforts of ECRI and the Council of Europe, Europe now has a huge web of hate speech laws and policies. Gatestone has previously reported on ECRI’s monitoring of Germany and of Switzerland.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) is investigating concerns of human trafficking and slavery in Britain’s new coronavirus hotspot of Leicester, after claims that sweatshops paying less than half the minimum wage remained open during the lockdown in the multicultural city.

Leicester was the first region to go back into lockdown last week while the rest of the country opened up after reports of nearly 1,000 new COVID-19 cases in the city of 330,000. Local councillor Ratilal Govind in part blamed what he called a “language barrier” in immigrant communities for the misunderstanding of lockdown rules contributing to the rise, claiming that the government failed to produce enough literature on the outbreak in foreign languages.

As Hong Kong was being handed over in early July 1997, my old colleague and I began a series of short visits throughout the Pearl River Delta, from Macau to Shenzen to Canton; all rather sleepy spots relative to the towering buzz of Hong Kong. In Macau there was an unexpected statue of Jorge Alvares, the Portuguese explorer, who arrived here in 1513; he was soon followed a few years later by his colleague Rafael Perestrello, who happened to be a cousin of Christopher Columbus…so strange to think a single family produced explorers that sailed west to America and east to China.

  1. “Speaking in Velehrad, the most important Czech pilgrimage site, on the occasion of celebrating the arrival of the Christian missionaries to the Czech territory, Cardinal Dominik Duka talked about divisions in today’s society, stressing that in democracy, there has to be morality and respect for others.

    However, Duka began his speech by saying that Velehrad is a place that helped Czechs find their national identity.”
    This would’ve been the perfect oportunity to say “Czechia”. If the same took place in Hungary, nobody would say “to the Hungarian territory”, right?

    In a sense, he’s right about our national identity. While we were definitely present centuries before that event, uniting us under Christianity helped the Przemyslid dynasty to become the oldest and longest ruling dynasty in medieval Europe, ultimately resulting in political and economical stability that made life for our ancestors easier. At the same time we managed to keep our Slavic customs to this day, even though most people consider them Christian.

  2. “On Friday, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia, and Cyprus placed new restrictions on Czech citizens entering their territory due to the growing number of new coronavirus cases in the east of Czechia.”
    Kudos for using “Czechia” in this one!
    We’re restricting travel to our eastern regions as well. Not officially, but people seem to be avoiding those parts nowadays.

  3. “Denmark will examine the refugee status of Syrians from Damascus and potentially withdraw their residency as the area has become safer.

    The assessments come after the Danish Refugee Board determined that the Damascus area was safe for Syrian refugees to return to in five different cases in both May and June.”

    That’s good news! Germany and other nations should follow suit!

  4. An Afghan orc from Moria stabs a bunch of other orcs after being confronted about stealing a cell phone from an orc of african extraction…

    One wonders why the Moria authorities don’t just ban knives like the wise muslim mayor of London has so successfully done?

    • Probably the authorities of Moria do not ban knives with the hope that they will kill each other,something that often happens there.😈

      • If that is the case then give them poisoned blades or canisters of nerve agent so they can kill a lot more of each other.

    • From my third floor apartment window. A bunch of wild bubonic plague level African rats shouting and yelling, [Micturating] on the walls as a local white couple pass by with their two children. Eventually two police show up. Such nice police boys. We understand. We were just like you once. Toothy phoney smiles ear to ear. All chatty and friendly with the three aliens [epithets]. One pint sized cop gives the savage a big OK thumbs up. Buddy tap on the shoulder and away they go in their little police car. I have started to avoid getting too close to these people. Far too [messed] up to possibly not get taken over. I hear how the British were supposedly and I immediately want to start to vomit. Guck any connections it’s become a thing called distance and survival.

    • The speaker in one of the videos explaining what “the realities”. He doesn’t remember so he refers to notes. I imagine like so many he will find how much more it will be the prophet motive that will reduce his breathing and space.

  5. Re: Halle Berry apologises for considering transgender Role…

    How many actual transgender actors/ actresses are there who could play the part adequately? We’ve become accustomed- and it maybe took too long- to, say, black singers (Leontyne Price, Jessye Norman) playing characters who would originally have been white, or black actors playing Hamlet or Othello (who was a “moor”, ie a Berber from the Mahreb, not a “negro”). Which I believe is (mainly) progress; if we want descendants of immigrants to feel part of our culture, they should be included, even if this requires some mental adjustment on the part of the majority audience. Though I can’t imagine “Porgy and Bess” with a partly white cast..

    In this case, the lady doth protest too much, methinks: virtue signalling is apparent.

    Also, re “150 Top Intellectuals…” I never expected to see Noam Chomsky signing the same letter as Rushdie and Rowling, but good for him- maybe he does actually value free speech, a cornerstone of democracy!

    • <ark h, All these 3rd worlders must go. As the muslim Algerians gave the French a choice, the suitcase or coffin, we must do the same to them. Side with them at your peril.
