BLM Leader Calls for Investigation Into Co-Founder Spending Millions on Property in White Areas

The head of Black Lives Matter NYC has called for an investigation after it was revealed that BLM’s co-founder has been spending millions of dollars buying property in predominantly white neighborhoods.

As we highlighted last week, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors recently bought a $1.4 million dollar home in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, an area that has a black population of just 1.6 per cent.

That somewhat contradicts her message to others to “buy black.”

BLM: Accusations Against Co-Founder Part of ‘Tradition of Terror by White Supremacists’

Black Lives Matter issued a statement Tuesday asserting that any accusations of wrongdoing against co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors misusing funds are yet another example of white supremacy.

As details continue to emerge of the property spending splurge that the self proclaimed marxist activist has been on, as well as details of yet more grifting activities, and even as other leaders call for investigations, the organisation claimed that the whole thing is a “false and dangerous story” being pushed by “right wing forces” and “white supremacists”.

Chicago Teachers Union Threatens Strike Over School Reopening

The Chicago Teachers Union is reportedly threatening to strike this week over the city’s plan to return to in-person learning.

The Chicago Public School System says schools will reopen for in-person education by April 19. The CTU is pushing back on reopening, saying that, among other issues, the vaccination rate for high school students is not yet high enough to justify in-person learning. The union had originally asked for a week’s delay, a request that the CPS turned down.

CTU Chief of Staff Jennifer Johnson said the union is preparing to protest.

Columbus Police Say Protesters Tried to Break Into CPD Headquarters; Officer Injured

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A few people were able to breach a set of outer doors at Columbus Police headquarters after a protest Tuesday night, with one officer being evaluated for a head injury related to the incident.

Columbus Police Sgt. James Fuqua said an officer was hit in the head by some sort of stick during the incident. Investigators are trying to determine if the officer was struck on purpose or if it was accidental.

Fuqua said about 50 people peacefully demonstrated and marched in downtown Columbus Tuesday night, with the demonstration ending outside police headquarters.

After the protesters left, Fuqua said some of them came back and attempted to break into the building.

Data Reveal Decline in U.S. Birth Rates Amid Pandemic

Multiple states have seen a significant decline in birth rates in 2020 and into 2021, potentially reflecting a larger national trend.

Florida recorded fewer than 210,000 births in 2020, which is almost a 5% drop from 2019. The recent drop is the sharpest the state has recorded in nearly 15 years. Data for the first quarter of 2021 shows a similar decline.

Arizona experienced a less significant drop throughout 2020 compared to Florida, although 2021 data show sharply decreased birth numbers so far.

California’s numbers are more severe. There has been a 6% drop in births in 2020 compared to 2019. The earliest data from 2021 shows even sharper declines, including an 11% drop in January and an 18% drop in February.

Democrats to Introduce Bill to Expand Supreme Court From 9 to 13 Justices

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats will introduce legislation Thursday to expand the Supreme Court from nine to 13 justices, joining progressive activists pushing to transform the court.

The move intensifies a high-stakes ideological fight over the future of the court after President Donald Trump and Republicans appointed three conservative justices in four years, including one who was confirmed days before the 2020 election.

The Democratic bill is led by Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee. It is co-sponsored by Reps. Hank Johnson of Georgia and Mondaire Jones of New York.

Former Minnesota Cop Charged in Shooting of Black Motorist

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (AP) — A white former suburban Minneapolis police officer was charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter for killing 20-year-old Black motorist Daunte Wright in a shooting that ignited days of unrest and clashes between protesters and police.

The charge against former Brooklyn Center police Officer Kim Potter was filed three days after Wright was killed during a traffic stop and as the nearby murder trial progresses for the ex-officer charged with killing George Floyd last May.

The former Brooklyn Center police chief has said that Potter, a 26-year veteran and training officer, intended to use her Taser on Wright but fired her handgun instead. However, protesters and Wright’s family members say there’s no excuse for the shooting and that it shows how the justice system is tilted against Blacks, noting Wright was stopped for expired car registration and ended up dead…

Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey has been cleared of wrongdoing in the shooting of Jacob Blake, who became a symbol following the death of George Floyd after Blake resisted arrest and was shot several times. Blake was rendered paralyzed following the shooting.

The shooting of Blake prompted widespread riots to erupt across the United States and Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he resided.

The riots included the deaths of three Antifa supporters who descended upon the city after they got involved in an altercation with a 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who was present at the location in apparent defence of local businesses.

Pentagon to Scan Social Media of Service Members for Signs of “Extremism”

Back in January, when some military veterans were found participating in the Capitol storming, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had ordered a “stand-down” across the force for discussing “extremism” in the US military.

Now, the Pentagon released a memo which outlines actions to be taken to counter this extremism in the military and also announces the establishment of the “Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG)” that will monitor the social media activity of service members.

It is worth noting that the US Department of Defense hasn’t formally defined what “extremism” is.

Portland Police Say Monday Protest Was a ‘Planned Coordinated Attack on the Police’

PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police didn’t mince words Tuesday afternoon when sharing details after a Monday night protest led to significant damage to a city building on East Burnside, calling it a “planned, coordinated attack” that was “targeted criminal behavior.”

After a vigil on Monday evening for Daunte Wright, the man shot and killed by police in Minneapolis on Sunday, demonstrators marched to the Penumbra Kelly Building on East Burnside where police say they lit fires, threw rocks at the building, and shot ball bearings at officers with slingshots.

“The police were met with immediate attempts of assault with a lot of very dangerous and deadly weapons,” said Captain Tina Jones, a spokesperson for the Portland Police Bureau. “It was a planned, coordinated attack on the police and this building that houses facilities for Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and the Portland Police Bureau.”

“End the Lockdown!” Say Thousands Gathered at Alberta Legislature Protest

Over 2,000 people took to the steps of the Alberta legislature on Monday over the lunch hour to protest the provincial government’s third COVID lockdown. Representatives from business, medical, faith, amateur sports and civil liberties organizations took to the podium to call for an end to the pandemic restrictions. Maxime Bernier, of the People’s Party of Canada and the End the Lockdown Caucusfrom Liberty Coalition Canada, was the keynote speaker.

After the peaceful event, Premier Jason Kenney denounced the protesters as “unhinged” and “conspiracy theorists” in response to the crowd chanting “lock her up,” referring to Chief Medical Officer of Health Deena Hinshaw. The chant is reminiscent of the one chanted at Trump rallies about Hillary Clinton, however, no one has ever been locked up after a crowd has repeated those three words in unison.

Rebellious Restaurateurs Link Up for Barbecue Protest in Alberta

Rebel News was on location at the Whistle Stop Café in Mirror, Alberta this past Saturday, where owner Chris Scott has refused to shut down, despite new provincial lockdown measures. Chris has become, in the eyes of many, the unofficial leader of Alberta’s restaurant revolution, as many businesses are following his lead in refusing to heed Alberta Health Services’ directives.

Adam Skelly of Adamson Barbecue in Toronto was on location for the day as guest chef. Adam, like Chris, defied government restrictions and kept his business open. But unlike in Alberta where Chris had support from other businesses, Skelly stood alone in defiance. In response to this defiance, he was locked out of his restaurant and ultimately publicly detained by a platoon of officers, including, as though for dramatic effect, mounted RCMP.

Hundreds were on hand for Saturday’s event, with many waiting in line for hours for a chance to get their fill of Adamson Barbecue.

School Custodian Says She Was Fired for Not Downloading Invasive Tracking App

Many have feared that invasive location tracking tech, once it gets introduced as a necessity to help anything from curbing the spread of the virus, to ensuring productivity of workers suddenly forced to work remotely because of the pandemic, would eventually become normalized, and have serious repercussions.

These predictions seem to be slowly materializing as reports start cropping up of people caught between a rock and a hard place: either lose their privacy, or their job.

One of them is Michelle Dionne, a custodian in a school in Canada, who got fired by the company contracted by the school to provide cleaning services because she refused to use a location tracking app on her personal phone.

Delingpole: Doom Goblin Greta Thunberg’s TV Show is a Massive Ratings Flop

Doom Goblin Greta Thunberg’s first big TV show has proved to be a massive turn off for viewers.

The BBC was so confident of the Doom Goblin’s pulling power that it commissioned three, one-hour-long episodes of its documentary series Greta Thunberg: A Year to Change The World.

The series follows the pigtailed climate puppet from her native Sweden to the US, Chile, Spain, the UK and Switzerland as she spends a year bunking off school while ‘exploring the science of global warming and challenging world leaders on the growing crisis.’

But even though the BBC gave it its best shot — the primetime 9pm slot, a guest appearance from Sir David Attenborough, villainous cameos by former President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, dramatic footage of calving glaciers and allegedly endangered coral reefs, plus endless shots of Thunberg looking anguished and impassioned — the show has tanked.

According to the ratings figures from Overnights.TV the show on the BBC’s flagship channel BBC1 lost 55 percent of its audience from the previous slot. It averaged 1.08 m viewers with a 6.30 percent share of the total audience. This compares most unfavourably with the show in the same slot the week before, Masterchef, which averaged 3.56 million viewers with an 18.9 percent audience share.

Facebook Finally Restores Page of French Town Named Bitche After a Month of Ignoring Its Pleas

A historic town from northeast France, Bitche in the Moselle, has a Facebook page “Ville de Bitche” where the town’s local news and updates are regularly shared. The page was, however, banned by Facebook a month ago, only to recently be restored.

When the Franco-Prussian War happened in the 1870s, the town Bitche, where the letter “e” is silent when pronounced, was a fortress town. It is now home to over 5000 inhabitants.

Facebook’s algorithms ended up banning the “Ville de Bitche” back in March for using “offensive” language. Soon after the page was banned, the town’s spokesperson, Valérie Degouy, tried reaching out to Facebook through various avenues and failed to get her concerns across.

Germany: He Screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ After Running Over Motorcyclists, But ‘Experts’ Now Claim it Wasn’t Terrorism

An Iraqi asylum seeker who mowed down a number of people riding motorcycles on Germany’s Autobahn last summer — injuring six people, three of them seriously — has been deemed mentally ill by authorities and therefore not capable of being held legally accountable for his crimes.

Initially, investigators assumed that the perpetrator, 30-year-old Iraqi asylum seeker Sarmad A., had been motivated by an Islamist ideology. According to Attorney General Margarete Koppers, following the attack, which took place on Autobahn A 100 last August, Sarmad A. crashed his black Opel Astra at a motorway exit after carrying out the attacks, stepped out of his vehicle, rolled up a prayer rug, and shouted “Allahu Akbar”, and declared that everyone would die, Berliner Zeitung reports.

Iceland Court Rules Against Mandatory COVID Quarantine Hotels

This week, a district court in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik ruled in seven cases that a mandatory stay at a quarantine hotel is illegal, as reported by Iceland Monitor.

A government measure came into effect on April 1 compelling a quarantine hotel stay for all travellers arriving in Iceland from a country “where the 14-day incidence of COVID-19 infection exceeds 500 per 100,000 population,” which is considered to be a “dark red” zone by the European Union. However, the Reykjavik District Court has ruled that there is no legal ground to compel those who have legal residence in Iceland to abide by this rule.

‘It Represents Well-Off Big-City Academics’ — Former Chair of Germany’s Left Party Criticizes Left-Wing Liberalism and Identity Politics

Left-wing MP Sahra Wagenknecht, who was previously served as parliamentary chiar for Germany’s Left Party (Die Linke), has renewed her criticism of the left-wing liberalism, identity politics, and the left-wing elite in Germany and her party.

Left liberalism is neither left nor liberal, Wagenknecht told Focus Online.

“It represents well-off big-city academics rather than those who have to fight harder and harder for their small amount of wealth, which should actually be the concern of the left. And liberal? Because of its pronounced intolerance, modern left-wing liberalism should be called just left-wing liberalism,” she said.

According to Wagenknecht, left-wing liberals behave in a similar way. She said there is a archtype for the “lifestyle left”.

Meghan ‘Ready to Forgive’ Royal Family, Claims Friend: Report

A friend of Meghan has reportedly told media that the Duchess of Sussex is “ready to forgive” the Royal Family, while claiming that she did not want to go to Prince Philip’s funeral because she “doesn’t want to be the center of attention”.

Relations between the woke royals and Britain’s first family have been tense since Meghan and her husband Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey last month where the couple alleged a royal had made racist remarks and the household failed to give the former television actress mental health support.

‘Poles Must Learn to Defend Their Homes, ‘ Warns Military Expert

There have recently been several alarmist analyses concerning Russia’s aggressive policies and how Moscow has been amassing troops on Ukraine’s Eastern border. Romuald Szeremietiew, professor of the National Defense Academy, compared Russia’s recent behavior to that of a child playing with matches.

“It takes out a match from the matchbox, lights it up and then takes out the next one. Every previous time it has stopped at that, but at some point, we might reach a moment in which the situation will spiral out of control and the child will light up the whole box and cause a fire. In geopolitical terms — hybrid warfare will turn into a proper, large scale military conflict,” the professor told Polish news portal Dorzeczy.pl.

Nevertheless, the professor believes that the most realistic scenario is a continuation of so-called low-intensity wars. Just as Crimea was annexed in 2014, Russia will want the world to recognize the region it seized, Donbas, as a part of Russia’s territory. This would allow for the expansion of Russian territory at a small price and increase Vladimir Putin’s popularity at home.

Polish Minister Praises Hungary’s Pro-Family Policies

Poland is looking at what elements of Hungary’s successful conservative family policies her country can borrow, Minister of Family, Labour and Social Policy Marlena Malag told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap in an interview.

“I was deeply impressed by the measures taken in the framework of the family-friendly policy and what Hungary has achieved so far in this area. I admire not only the courage with which further initiatives have been taken, not only the unity and consistency of action, but, most importantly, the impact that change will bring,” Malag said. “I believe that the exchange of experiences between our countries is not overrated in this form, as it is worthwhile to apply proven solutions.”

Predator Released Early From French Prison Over ‘COVID’ Concerns Rapes Teen

The family of a young girl allegedly raped by a suspect who was released early from a French prison due to COVID-related ‘crowding’ concerns is preparing to sue the government, according to reports.

‘Punish the Infidels’ — Trial Begins for Syrian Islamist Charged With Murdering Gay Tourist in Germany’s Dresden

A 21-year-old Syrian man granted asylum in Germany is being accused by prosecutors of targeting a gay couple and fatally stabbing one of them in Dresden last year due to his extremist Islamic motives, Germany’s Bild Zeitung writes.

The trial of Abdullah al Haj Hasan began in the higher regional court in Dresden on Monday. He is charged with attacking two German tourists in the Saxon capital with a knife, resulting in the death of one of the men.

As Bild-Zeitung and the German Press Agency report, Hasan came to Germany in 2015 and was granted refugee status. Bild reports that he talked for hours with the forensic psychologist in March, during which conversations he referred to a surah in the Koran, according to which “unbelievers” should be killed.

Now a Christian MLA in Kerala, PC George Demands That Hindu Rashtra (Nation-State) In India Curb Islamic State Instead

B Upendran | HENB | Thodupuzha, Idukki | April 14, 2021:: A seven time Poonjar legislator P C George has once again sparked a controversy, demanding India should be declared as a Hindu Rashtra (nation-state) to survive from the threat of Islamic state as emerging in India. Being a practicing Christian, George demands a Hindu Rashtra in India to save the country from Islamic Jihad.

The 69-year-old MLA representing Poonjar in the State Assembly also said the Left and United democratic fronts, the two major rival alliances in Kerala, have joined hands with Jihadi terrorists to convert India into an Islamic nation. Both fronts’ (Communist and Congress) intention was to protect their vested interests, he said.

George was speaking at an event organized here by a non-profit, Human Resource Development Society (HRDS) on Monday. He added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetization decision snapped the financial channels, which delayed the move to create the Islamic nation by 2030.

The Central government had on November 8, 2016, announced the demonetization of all Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi series and replaced them with the new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 currency notes.

Soon after George’s controversial speech, the Special Branch of the Kerala Police launched a probe. Differing from the Supreme Court’s observation, the MLA also said that he was sure love jihad, suspected fraudulent marriages to convert people into Islam from other religions, was on in Kerala.

As a matter of fact the Islamist in Kerala run their Love Jihad rackets to exploit the Hindu and Christian girls in a same way and the propagation of Islamic states by home grown Jihadis in Kerala is all time high for that Hindus and Christians are turned most vulnerable in this southernmost state in India.

Australian Military Reminded Its Role is “Lethal Violence” & Not “Woke” Activism

The Australian military has been reminded by MPs that its core mission is the “application of lethal violence” in response to concerns about it being too “woke” following a performance during which scantily clad dancers twerked on a Navy ship.

The advisory came after awkward scenes where young women gyrated suggestively in front of military officials, some of them elderly, during a ceremony to formally commission the Navy’s newest ship, a debacle that was dubbed a “shitshow” by one member of the government.

Around 675,000 migrants living in Sweden are either on welfare benefits or are not able to support themselves through the work they do have, according to statistics from the Swedish Parliamentary Investigative Service (RUT).

The figures were highlighted in a recent detailed report on migration and integration presented by the centre-right Moderate Party that states the figure, which was recorded in 2019, means that a large section of the migrant population makes less than 186,000 Swedish Kronor (£15,890/$21,852) per year.

UK: People Smugglers ‘Use the Poorest Migrants in Cheap Boats as Decoys’

The number of migrants attempting the dangerous journey across the English Channel to reach British shores in March this year was more than four times as many as tried during the same month last year.

Statistics showing the number of migrants that were picked up in the Channel by Border Force agents show that 187 attempted the journey in small boats in March 2020.

However, this monthly total had risen four-fold to 831 by March 2021, which saw a continued trend of increasing numbers month-on-month this year.

Ruthless people smugglers are using the poorest migrants travelling in the cheapest boats as decoys to give people paying ‘premium’ rates a better chance of crossing The Channel, it has been claimed.

Video: Five Illegal Afghan Migrants Detained at Polish-Czech Border

The Silesian Border Guard unit detained five Afghani citizens who illegally crossed the border from Czechia to Poland. They were detained in Chalupki, Raciborz region.

Discord Now Prevents NSFW Servers Being Accessed on iPhone

Discord is making some changes to how it handles NSFW (not safe for work) content on its platform and it seems that it’s all because of Apple.

All NSFW servers will not be accessible on iOS devices, likely due to Apple’s strict guidelines on adult content. That’s because NSFW servers will only be accessible on the Android and desktop version of the social network.

Discord is a social chat and networking app, more like WhatsApp and Telegram, where people can chat, via voice, video, and text in private or create groups with others with common interests. On Discord these communities are called “servers.”

It comes amid an ongoing push by Republican-led states to enact measures that seek to protect female athletes, who are likely to have a biological disadvantage if forced to compete against male-born students.

OU Defends Its Online Training Stance to Require Staff’s Agreement With Approved Viewpoints

Last November, University of Oklahoma (OU) received a letter from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), inquiring about the school’s policies around diversity, equity, and inclusion training, and specifically, how this training was being carried out.

The practice bordered on coercive since faculty and staff were not only required to take the online courses and learn about the university’s stance (like students), but also express their agreement with it. This qualifies as compelled speech of employees.

It took a while for OU to respond to the letter but it arrived in late March to address the request to access the training materials by saying those would only be accessible on campus — because of alleged concern that copyright infringement related to the module used in training may occur.

  1. https://www.focus.de/politik/deutschland/interview-mit-sahra-wagenknecht-wagenknecht-schiesst-gegen-fridays-generation_id_13184632.html

    Concerning the interview with Wagenknecht of the German LINKE: in English she is quoted as criticising “big-city academics”.

    But checking the German at the URL above she actually said, “Grossstadtakademiker”, which is a much bigger group numerically, namely: “big-city college (UK: university) graduates”. So the number of people she correctly damns is much more than the quite small number of university teachers.

    Akademiker in German means graduate in English; the German for academic is Hochchullehrer. The mistranslation is very common.

    • I agree. I have indeed read the entire Wagenknecht text and it might make you think that winds are changing.
      She is a very smart person with down to earth views of life. As is the green mayor of Tübingen, Boris Palmer, who went out alone at nighttimes confronting antifas in his city.
      As for the “Akademiker”, you are right. It is the population least confronted with immigration( let alone them paying taxes), living in the leafier parts of town and in oppulent lifestyle, DINKS.
      BTW, this april was the coldest since weather recorded.
      That is why the fridays for future kid remained in bed.
      Nothing to see here, move on.

  2. Well, Baron, it’s finally happened.
    Wall to wall Clown World.

    I think that the key act of rebellion now is to stop watching it. Stop giving it out attention and energy. In what world does it make sense to attend daily the doings of the nearby insane asylum?

  3. “Germany: He Screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ After Running Over Motorcyclists, But ‘Experts’ Now Claim it Wasn’t Terrorism”

    The trial will take place: “the public prosecutor’s office is aiming for the Iraqi asylum seeker to be placed in a psychiatric hospital since …. jail is no longer possible.”
    Some translations are needed:
    “delusional religious and Islamist motives”….. exactly what this book says.
    “motivated by an Islamist ideology” ….. motivated by ordinary basic Islam

    Germany’s lawyers are deceived, ignorant, and negligent.
