America’s Largest Confederate Statue is Removed: Richmond’s Robert E. Lee Monument Comes Down in Victory for BLM and Will Now be Sent to Goochland Women’s Correctional Center

America’s largest Confederate statue — the 12-ton bronze statue of Confederate Army General Robert E. Lee — was removed from its pedestal in Richmond, Virginia, on Wednesday morning to the sound of ‘black lives matter’ chants and crowds singing ‘Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye’ in the latest victory for BLM.

The 21ft bronze statute of Lee atop a horse will now be sent to the Goochland Women’s Correctional Center in Virginia until officials know what to do with it permanently. It is the latest Confederate statue to have been toppled by the BLM movement amid protest from white residents who thought it should be preserved in history.

AP Source: Trump to Endorse GOP Challenger to Cheney

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has chosen a favored candidate in his bid to unseat Rep. Liz Cheney, one of his most vocal Republican critics.

Trump is planning to endorse Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman, who is preparing to launch a primary campaign against Cheney, the most prominent member of Congress to vote for Trump’s second impeachment, according to a person familiar with his decision. The person spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of a formal announcement.

[Comment: Lynn Cheney is toast politically. She might have a future, though, as the token Republican on MSNBC talk shows, or founding a think tank funded by the military-industrial complex.]

Florida Girl, 11, Describes How She Survived Marine’s Shooting Rampage That Left Family Dead

Lakeland girl told detectives she played dead, prayed, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says

The only surviving victim, an 11-year-old, who remains hospitalized after a Marine veteran on a shooting rampage burst into her central Florida home and killed four people, including a baby in his mother’s arms, has since told investigators that she believes she made it out alive because she played dead and prayed.

Authorities have said there is zero known connection between Marine sharpshooter 33-year-old Bryan Riley, of Brandon, Fla., and his victims whom he allegedly gunned down inside their home in an unincorporated area of Lakeland before barricading himself inside and firing at law enforcement.

“Despite us fearing there were booby traps, our Sgt. Graham rushed into the house when he heard there was someone in there, scooped her up and ran out with her, and she said, ‘The other three are dead,’“ Judd said on camera in front of a Forensic Investigations Lab Services van stationed at the house.

The 11-year-old girl, whose name had not been released, had been shot several times in the legs but is expected to make a full recovery, Judd said. A student at Lake Gibson Middle School, she remains hospitalized at Tampa General Hospital in stable condition…

Road Rage Ends With Fatal Shooting in Catoosa County

Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office detectives are continuing their investigation into road rage incidents Monday night that ended with the shooting death of 34-year-old Jack Pedigo.

Sheriff Gary Sisk said heated words were exchanged between Pedigo and Daniel Vaughn at about 8:11 p.m. Monday while they were on Battlefield Parkway.

An investigation shows that Pedigo followed Vaughn and his wife to their home at 236 Elm Ave. when another heated exchange of words and threats erupted. Pedigo then left Elm Avenue and went to his home off of Three Notch Road.

Vaughn called 911 and reported the incident and the Sheriff’s Office placed a “lookout” on Pedigo’s vehicle. At about 9:26 p.m. Pedigo returned to 236 Elm Ave. and more heated words were exchanged. Vaughn then fired a weapon, killing Pedigo.

Sheriff Sisk said, “This appears to be a tragic event that is a result of a couple of strangers who lost control of their emotions in a war of words.”

He said that no charges have been filed at this time as detectives continue their investigation.

Environmental Protest is Now Biggest Act of Civil Disobedience in Canada’s History

Canadian police have arrested more than 800 people since April in what the Guardian reported is now the biggest act of civil disobedience in the country’s history.

“We have experts in rigging, we have climbers, we have carpenters — we have all these people getting together to build amazing, beautiful things,” Jean-François Savard, one of several protesters camping out in the remote Fairy Creek watershed, told The Guardian. “The [police] are getting very frustrated by our tenacity because we’re constantly rebuilding and coming up with new ideas. People aren’t giving up.”

The country’s indigenous population has a long history of civil disobedience that often aligns with the concerns of environmentalists. Last year, protesters blocked rail lines across the country as the Wet’suwet’en Nation fought against a natural gas pipeline, reported The Canadian Press. But the arrest of at least 866 protesters has surpassed the previous record of arrests, reported The Guardian, set during the “War in the Woods,” another series of anti-logging protests that took place in the 1990s.

Polish Justice Minister Accuses EU of ‘Legal Hybrid Warfare’

Pope Reportedly Set to Snub Orban as Catholic Congress in Budapest Begins

The first Eucharistic Congress has begun in Budapest, and it will be the first hosted by Hungary since 1938. Ironically, the pandemic is limiting the number of attendees, while in 1938, Berlin closed its borders to religious pilgrims from Germany and Austria in retaliation against Pope Pius XI’s condemnation of national socialism.

Polish pilgrims were the third-largest contingent at the time, behind only Italy and Czechoslovakia. They were warmly greeted, despite the fact that Warsaw had been Budapest’s rival for hosting the event, ultimately withdrawing in favor of the Hungarians, who were commemorating the 900th anniversary of the death of Saint Stephen, the first king of Hungary.

Poland and Hungary’s roads will cross once more on Sept. 12 when Pope Francis visits Budapest. On the same day, Warsaw will host the beatification of Polish Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski. Pope Francis will spend just seven hours in Budapest before going on to spend three and a half days in neighboring Slovakia.

There has been extensive commentary in Hungary regarding an interview granted to Spanish radio by Pope Francis last week. In that interview, the pope said that he did not know if he would meet Viktor Orban:

The EU is Not Prepared for Open, Democratic Debates, Says Hungarian Foreign Minister

There is no opportunity for real, mutually respectful, democratic debates in the European Union, as the ever-evident double standard applied to conservative nations remains an enormous challenge, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjartó said at the Karpacz Economic Forum in Southern Poland on Tuesday.

It is important to have an honest debate on overcoming the challenges facing the continent, yet those who disagree with the mainstream are labeled “anti-European,” Szijjartó said at a “Europe of the Carpathians” panel discussion.

UK: Just Three Ministers Challenged Boris Over Manifesto Pledge-Breaking Tax Hike

Just three Cabinet ministers had reportedly challenged Boris Johnson over his proposed tax hike, with media suggesting any failed rebellion was minimised amidst the threat of an impending reshuffle of the prime minister’s top table.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Johnson announced a rise in National Insurance tax of 1.25 per cent from April 2022, breaking his election manifesto pledge. Media estimates put that rise on someone earning £20,000 annually to losing around £130 a year and for someone on a salary of £30,000, a £255 loss. A doctor earning average wages could lose as much as £650.

Taliban Paint Over the ‘Soul of Kabul’: Western Murals That Adorn the Afghan Capital’s Walls — Including One of George Floyd — Are Being Replaced With ‘Victory Slogans’

The Taliban have started painting over artist’s murals of western symbols and values that adorn the walls of the Afghan capital — including one of George Floyd — and are replacing them with ‘victory slogans’.

Afghan activist Omaid Sharifi’s art collective, Artlords, have spent eight years transforming stretches of Kabul’s labyrinthine concrete blast walls with colourful murals.

They created more than 2,200 murals across the country addressing everything from the killing of George Floyd in the US and the drowning of Afghan refugees in Iran, to gender equality and the signing of the US-Taliban agreement towards peace.

Extinction Rebellion is Akin to a Secular ‘Cult’

Broadcaster Kel Richards says Extinction Rebellion is akin to a secular “cult” with a “charismatic leader”.

“They have a charismatic leader — bloke named Roger Hallam,” Mr Richards told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“He manages to persuade his followers that they should give up their jobs, they should be full-time protestors, doing nothing else and risk a criminal record.

“Now that’s a very charismatic leader.

“It reminds you of the earlier religious cults, like Jim Jones in the jungles of Guyana.”

‘Havana Syndrome’ And the Mystery of the Microwaves

Doctors, scientists, intelligence agents and government officials have all been trying to find out what causes “Havana syndrome” — a mysterious illness that has struck American diplomats and spies. Some call it an act of war, others wonder if it is some new and secret form of surveillance — and some people believe it could even be all in the mind. So who or what is responsible?

It often started with a sound, one that people struggled to describe. “Buzzing”, “grinding metal”, “piercing squeals”, was the best they could manage.

One woman described a low hum and intense pressure in her skull; another felt a pulse of pain. Those who did not hear a sound, felt heat or pressure. But for those who heard the sound, covering their ears made no difference. Some of the people who experienced the syndrome were left with dizziness and fatigue for months.

Havana syndrome first emerged in Cuba in 2016. The first cases were CIA officers, which meant they were kept secret. But, eventually, word got out and anxiety spread. Twenty-six personnel and family members would report a wide variety of symptoms. There were whispers that some colleagues thought sufferers were crazy and it was “all in the mind”.

Five years on, reports now number in the hundreds and, the BBC has been told, span every continent, leaving a real impact on the US’s ability to operate overseas.

FM Szijjartó: Hungary, Poland Cooperate in Handling Migration

Hungary and Poland are closely cooperating in preventing some western European states from imposing on the European Union the “flawed and dangerous” migration policy whose consequences have been felt since 2015, Péter Szijjartó, Hungary’s foreign minister, said after talks with his Polish counterpart Zbigniew Rau in Karpacz, Poland.

The situation in Afghanistan, he said, keeps deteriorating, with reports on a forthcoming civil war emerging but half of the population of that country had lived on welfare even before the Islamist Taliban rebels came to power.

“The western European statements that can be interpreted as invitations to all Afghans are particularly irresponsible,” Szijjartó said.

PM Orban: Hungary and Serbia to Protect Europe From Migration Waves

Hungary and Serbia will join forces to stop potential migration waves and so protect Europe, including Germany, where many of the migrants are headed, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Wednesday, after talks with his Serbian counterpart, Ana Brnabic.

Orban told the joint press conference after the meeting that Europe had to be protected from a new wave of possibly millions of people heading towards Europe in the wake of “the US failure in Afghanistan”. Should the migrants choose to travel by land, Serbia and Hungary will find themselves in a very difficult situation, he said.

“Governments, NGOs and Soros organizations previously in favor of migration” are now clearly just as ready to support migration from Afghanistan, Orban said. This, however, is diametrically opposed to Hungary and Serbia’s interests, he said.

UK: Tory MPs Finally Back Farage’s ‘Send Back the Boats’ Approach to Illegal Migration From France

There is growing pressure within Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s own party to enact the “high-octane measure” of adopting Brexit leader Nigel Farage’s proposal of sending boat migrants back to France, as record numbers of illegal aliens continue to pour across the English Channel.

In the past two days, alone, the number of migrants landing in Dover has totalled more than half of all illegals that arrived during the entirety of 2019. So far this year, an estimated 13,500 migrants have reached the UK by travelling in small rubber dinghies from the beaches of France. Estimates have predicted that by the end of the year, between twenty and thirty thousand could arrive through this method, compared to 8,410 last year.

Megyn Kelly: I Pulled My Sons From School After They Were Asked Weekly if They’re ‘Still Sure’ They’re Boys

Megyn Kelly says the reason she left her sons’ school was because the boys were asked on a weekly basis if they were “still sure” they were boys. Kelly said the gender ideology being pushed in schools today is “creating mental health problems” and is “100 percent abusive.”

“In my sons’ school — the one we left because of these agendas — they asked the boys, one of the best all-boys schools in the country, whether they were ‘still sure’ they were boys,” Kelly said in a recent interview with Outkick’s Bobby Burack. “Are they ‘still sure’? They asked them that weekly. Weekly, as if they had changed their minds.”

  1. Mission Australia who owns the apartment block is a charity hence the clamp down on alcohol. Charities in Australia own lots of real estate under the guise of “helping the poor” providing low cost housing but sometimes they buy million dollars homes in nice areas to put Africans in. They push up housing costs for Australians who have to save and work and pay for their own homes. Is this like the great reset? Charities owning all the real estate?

  2. Many “Charities” or “non-Profits ” here in America are own and operated by relatives and “close friends” of elected officials in city, state or federal positions. They get massive amounts of taxpayers dollars from city ,state, and federal coffers .The overhead to run these “non-profits” the salaries for employees can run as high as 98 cents on ever dollar collect in donations or payed by the government (your tax money) .

    • wpm: Indeed. This is how non-profits and NGOs are used to launder money. Federal support (or state, or city) flows to “charities,” “social service organizations” and “humanitarian relief” and the money ends up in the pockets of politically connected “friends and family.”
