A colonel in Ukraine's military intelligence was killed by a car bomb in central Kiev on Tuesday, the defense ministry said, describing the incident as a "terrorist act". Police said an explosive device in the vehicle blew up at 0516 GMT while the car was moving, killing the driver and wounding a passer-by. "As a result of (the explosion) a member of the defense ministry's main intelligence department, Colonel Maksim Shapoval, was killed," the defense ministry said in a statement. The police and the ministry did not give further details or say who could be behind the attack. Since fighting with pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine broke out in 2014, the number of incidents involving explosives outside the conflict zone has increased, but car bombs are relatively rare. The last major incident in Kiev occurred in July, when a prominent investigative journalist, Pavel Sheremet, was killed by the detonation of an explosive device in his car.
On Friday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC panelist Donny Deutsch pushed the typical liberal “tax cuts for the rich” narrative as he slammed the Republican health care reform bill: "The other side of the aisle will call this as a redistribution of wealth. Obviously, parties are given to hyperbole, but the reality according to the Center [for] Tax Policy is that 90 percent of the benefits in this plan go to families making $700,000 a year…"
A group of protesters from Black Lives Matter slowed down the parade by holding their own gathering with banners for Philando Castile soon after it got underway. About 200 protesters began marching down Hennepin Avenue and at one point, staged a die-in.
Parade organizers on Friday invited police to participate in the annual parade after initially asking police to minimize their participation due to tensions over a jury’s recent acquittal of the Minnesota officer who fatally shot Castile during a traffic stop last year. But Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau, who is the city’s first openly gay police chief, called that decision “divisive.”
Protesters chanted “No justice, no peace, no pride in police” and carried signs reading “Justice for Philando” and “Black Lives Matter.”
This is the long overdue study of the Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxist philosophy which now controls Western intellectualism, politics, and culture. It was by design; it was created by an internationalist intelligentsia to eradicate Western values, social systems, and European racial groups in a pre-emptive attempt to spark global, communist (think liberal) revolution. Andrew Breitbart's historical notes are taken into the narrative.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blamed the members of the Democratic Party for not having a clear message during an interview on CBS News’ “This Morning” on Monday.
CBS News’ Charlie Rose pointed out to Pelosi that Democrats have gone 0 and 4 in special elections in 2017 because people say that the Democratic Party has no message, aside from being anti-Trump.
Pelosi told Rose that this assertion was not true and that the special elections were elections that the Democrats were never going to win.
“There are 70 races that are easier for us than any of those. We would have never chosen to go in,” Pelosi explained.
“We just lost an election. We could write a message, but the fact is we need our members to write the message,” Pelosi concluded. “They know full well that’s something we’re working with the Senate to go forward.”
You can’t teach children inclusivity by denying them the opportunity to study Bible verses. Removing verses just because someone thinks they are offensive also takes away the freedom of religious speech, commentators told RT.
The Cornerstone Christian Academy and the Battle River School Division in Alberta, Canada, are at loggerheads over a Bible passage the school board considers offensive and interprets as indicating homosexuality is a sin.
The school board told the Academy it should not teach Bible scripture which vilifies someone's sexual orientation, but officials at the school fought back accusing the board of clamping down on freedom of religion.
Bricks were thrown and fires lit on Sunday as protesters confronted police over the treatment of Edir Frederico Da Costa, the 25-year-old black man who died six days after being arrested by officers, who, according to the police watchdog, used force and CS spray against him. Protesters carried Black Lives Matter signs.

"I moved here to get to UK, not Afghanistan" says a Sikh man who admits he didn't expect what happened when he came to London after leaving his own country.
The man also explains how it's second-generation Muslims whom have lived in the country that are behind the largest amount of problems being created by Muslims in the country.
First the British media took the word "Islam" out of islamic terror attacks and now they want to get rid of the word "terror", when it is clear that Islamic terrorism is politically motivated by the teachings of the quran which mandate martyrdom for Allah's cause (global domination).
Supporters of President Trump were hoping to be a part of Maxine Waters’ town hall meeting in Gardena on Saturday, but they were barred from entering the building. The Trump supporters received tickets for the event, but were treated as “second class citizens” because they supposedly did not live in her district. Video from outside the venue shows about 50 Trump supporters waving American flags and Trump banners and chanting, “Let us in!” as they noted that Waters doesn’t live in her own district, either. Police blocked the doors and prevented them from entering.
The non-constituents were identified with yellow wrist bands. “The yellow wrist band means that you are branded that you cannot go in the building,” one woman said. “You are forced to sit outside, even though we registered,” she added. As the Trump supporters tried in vain to enter the building, Waters could be heard over loud speakers. It appeared Waters cherry picked a friendly audience so she wouldn’t be challenged over ridiculously partisan stunts at the official event, like chanting “Impeach 45,” referring to Trump.
The LA Times reports: Inside, chants of “USA! USA!” could be heard from around 80 protesters who paced back and forth outside the venue. Waters’ opponents were dressed in pro-Trump garb and called her “Dirty Waters.”
Chanell Temple said she lost her job a few years ago and hasn’t been able to find a new one because she doesn’t speak Spanish. She said Waters has destroyed the black community by supporting immigrants.
Trump supporter: “People are tired with your hate and your racism! All the jobs went to illegals! You have destroyed the black community! You are a black racist! You hate blacks! All the jobs went to illegals! You gave our jobs to illegals! We want you out!”
The woman continued by saying, “Maxine Waters destroyed the black community,” and she blamed Maxine Waters and politicians like her for giving jobs away to illegal aliens.
Trump supporter: “She’s gotta go! She’s paid taxpayer money to discriminate against American citizens, and we’re not going to have it! She’s been in office too long doing NOTHING! She lied to the black community saying she was going to bring us jobs. She gave those jobs to illegal criminals! We want her out! She’s been in office for too long! She’s already showing signs of dementia! She’s a hater!”
Two Islamic centers in Northern California were the sites of possible hate crimes during the last days of Ramadan, law enforcement officials said.
A burned Quran filled with bacon was found outside a Sacramento mosque Saturday, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said. It was hanging by a handcuff from a temporary fence outside the Masjid Annur Islamic Center.
"Sheriff's Hate Crime detectives were called to the scene to begin their investigation into the possible hate crime," the department said in a statement.
The center, which is the largest mosque in the greater Sacramento area, is next to a police station but it has been targeted in the past.
Another center was targeted about 20 miles west in Davis, California.
As Ramadan Taraweeh prayers were underway Friday, an individual dropped a "large quantity" of cut up pages of the Quran outside the Islamic Center of Davis, Sgt. Dan Powell with the Davis Police Department said.
"There is no video of any suspects or video of the incident occurring; but we are calling this a hate incident," he said.
A crowd of conservatives descended upon a Town Hall event in Gardena, CA Saturday to peacefully protest Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) who was speaking out against the GOP healthcare bill.
There were no fires set, excrement thrown, or bike locks used to try and murder political foes – just a diverse crowd of concerned citizens who showed up to call Maxine Waters out for being an establishment shill who’s destroyed black communities while promoting the witch-hunt of President Trump over nonexistent ties to Russia.
Despite the foundations and long tradition of Christianity in Canada, any accommodation of it — even at Christmas time — is largely rejected in the public school system, which supposedly adheres to secularism. But there is a single exception to the rule, as one religion seems to stand supreme:
Muslim students in the province of Ontario are entitled to hold weekly prayer meetings, held on Friday. These “Jumm’ah” prayer and sermon sessions have been the focus of intense criticism as the provincial public school system is not supposed to be promoting any religion or hosting any religious instruction.
The Peel school board in Mississauga (near Toronto) is not only allowing Islamic sermons, but it is also refusing to monitor the contents of those sermons. This is despite the very real risk of the jihad doctrine being spread. The Toronto Star reported that “Islamic schools, mosques in Canada are filled with extremist literature, according to a study.” More troubling was that “the authors of the study say what worried them was not the presence of extremist literature, but that they found nothing but such writings in several mosque libraries and Islamic schools.”
Back in November, a large assembly of the Peel District School Board listened to the lamentations from the Muslim community “that Muslim students feel stigmatized and targeted” because their Friday prayers were restricted to pre-approved sermons, whereas previously, Muslim students were free to use any sermon they chose that was approved by an administrator. The identity of the administrator and his or her knowledge about Islamic sermons was not disclosed. The complaints from the Muslim community led to the reversal of the policy: the practice of allowing Muslim students to choose sermons was resumed.
The board also bent over backwards, working for over a year “with 10 local imams to develop the six sermons to be used during Friday prayers”; these were intended to be used “as a starting point,” to be developed to “a collection of hundreds of sermons available to students.”
Muslim Friday prayer is the only group-prayer activity that is allowed by the Peel District School Board.
Peel board members “justified the policy reversal” not to monitor the Islamic sermons “by insisting it represented a commitment to inclusiveness”; but its singling out of Muslims for preferred treatment above all other faiths was not an exercise in inclusivity, but rather a demonstration of the appalling exclusion of all other faiths. Even worse, when protests erupted, Peel police intervened as though they were Sharia police, and bullied a female protester outside:
Protesters were told to remove their signs because they were deemed anti-Muslim and one woman was taken outside by police after she interrupted the meeting with her objections.
A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.
The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources say it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary Clinton, anti-Trump agenda.
“These weren’t mercenaries or hired guns,” a congressional source familiar with the dossier probe said. “These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.”
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democratic ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.
Warren Buffett’s vice chairman, Charlie Munger, told a small meeting of investors that former Vice President Al Gore is “not very smart” and “an idiot” but was still able to make “$3 or $400 million in your business” by “obsessing” about “global warming.”
“Al Gore has hundreds of millions dollars in your profession. And he’s an idiot. It’s an interesting story. And a true one,” Meager told investors. According to CNBC on June 23: “Though the comments were made more than four months ago, they went largely unnoticed and have not been widely reported on elsewhere.”
“Al Gore has come into you fellas business, Munger said. “He has made $3 or $400 million in your business. And he’s not very smart. He smoked a lot of pot as he coaxed trough Harvard with a gentleman’s C. But he had one obsessive idea that global warming was a terrible thing and he would protect the world from it,” he explained. [Note: Gentleman’s C is defined by Urban Dictionary as “A grade given to a student (traditionally with wealthy parents) instead of a failing grade.”]
According to CNBC:
“Munger is one of the most celebrated investors in the world and was an essential partner in Buffett‘s success. Before becoming vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, the billionaire had quite the track record himself. From 1962 to 1975 Munger’s investment partnership generated 20 percent annual returns versus the S&P 500‘s 5 percent.”
Given radical Islamic terrorist attacks and people's concern about safety, Florida's Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd advised that people who are not afraid of a gun should get one, "and if you need to shoot somebody, shoot them a lot."
He also advised gun owners to "get a concealed firearms license and carry it."
Sheriff Grady made his remarks to ABC Action News (WFTS) this week.
“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one," said the sheriff. "Become proficient. Get a concealed firearms license and carry it."
"And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot them a lot," he said.
“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back," said the sheriff. "He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just the sitting duck."
"Well, the ducks need to shoot back," said the sheriff.
SAN FRANCISCO — A brawl forced the temporary lockdown of San Francisco’s downtown Westfield Mall Sunday evening and ended with several people being detained, authorities said. A San Francisco police spokesman said calls came in around 6:43 p.m. reporting a large fight at the mall.

As a precaution the mall was locked down for a short time and then finally closed for the night early while police attempted to control the violence. Officer Robert Rueca said a number of fights were occurring as bystanders were watching. He said officers tried to detain several people some of whom resisted and would not obey officers. As officers attempted to stop the fighting, they were attacked and assaulted. To help control the situation the mall was closed. Rueca said a number of people have been detained. One officer was injured.

A couple caring for a disabled teenager drenched her in a bathtub full of bleach and Epsom salt, court records show. Katrina, 51, and Garry Eubanks, 55, from Urbandale, Iowa, have been accused of bathing Airionna Bent, 19, in harsh chemicals that caused burns so bad finger marks could be seen on her skin after touching her, KCCI reported. Bent was born prematurely and suffers from cerebral palsy, so she cannot speak and is fed through a tube. Her mum, Becky Bent-Weible, left her in the Eubanks' care after she turned 18 and visits her weekly. 'I called her [Katrina] Airionna's other mother, I thought we were friends,' Bent-Weible said.On May 28, Garry and Katrina Eubanks - who was hired by Mosaic, a company that offers care for the disabled - bathed Airionna in the harsh chemicals and caused 'severe burns all over her body', court records show. The Eubanks waited until June 1, five days later, before sending her to the hospital, it is claimed. According to court records they took her out of state to the Wesley Chapel Hospital in Florida, apparently because Katrina's sister-in-law worked as a nurse there. They had informed a former Mosaic employee about their plans to take her to hospital in Florida but their confidant called the police, according to court records. 'Garry described... how Bent was crying and screaming in pain and that the injuries were so bad that you could see fingerprint impressions on Bent's skin if someone touched her,' the court documents revealed. Mosaic informed Airionna's mother, who then called Katrina, urging her to return her daughter immediately. Upon her arrest, Katrina - who her husband described as being 'frantic' when they realized how badly Airionna was hurt - allegedly said it had been an accident. 'She didn't know the injuries were that bad or that the bath water was that hot,' court records state Katrina said. 'It was like acid on wounds,' mother-of-three Bent-Weible said. 'If it had been an accident, they would have gone to a hospital immediately... they let my daughter suffer.' Airionna was then transferred back to a hospital in Iowa, where she's healing from her third degree burns. Police found a large bottle of Aloe Vera - typically used to soothe wounds - in the Eubanks' car and bleach as well as Epsom salt in their bathroom. The pair will later be taken to Iowa and will be charged with kidnapping and neglect and may face up to life in prison. The couple passed a background check before they were allowed to care for Airionna.

Twlight killers Lucas Markham and Kim Edwards murdered her mother Elizabeth, 49, and younger sister, Katie, 13, in cold blood at her home in Spalding, Lincolnshire, last April. Both are now serving a minimum of 17-and-a-half years for murder and a judge has lifted the order that would normally guarantee them anonymity at their age. The brutal murders will be retold tonight at 9pm on Channel 5 in show ‘Murdered By My Daughter’ and include Markham’s chilling confession. In a claim, undramatic voice, the killer tells the interviewing officer how he first stabbed Edwards’ mum in the neck and then smothered her with a pillow. He then describes how he entered Katie’s room and did the same thing.
Just two days after launching a Bulgarian communications satellite from Florida, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifted 10 Iridium NEXT telephone relay stations into orbit Sunday after a foggy afternoon launch from California. Despite blustery winds and high seas, the California rocket builder also was able to recover the booster's first stage with a pinpoint landing on an off-shore droneship, SpaceX's 13th successful landing in a row. More important for Iridium, it was the second batch of 10 Iridium NEXT spacecraft successfully launched by SpaceX under contracts with the satellite telephone provider to deploy 75 of the 81 relay stations being built to replace the company's current fleet of aging first-generation spacecraft. "Now that we're into the launch phase after more than seven years of effort, we're poised to complete the replacement transformation of our very unique network through a total of eight launches spread over a very short 18 months," Iridium CEO Matthew Desch told reporters last week.
HOUSTON - Cell phone video obtained by KHOU 11 News Friday captures the moments a Houston police officer kicked a man he had just shot. The video led a grand jury to indict former HPD officer Bruce Johnson for how he handled a burglary suspect he caught at his own home. Johnson had just shot the man who's pictured lying in the grass after investigators say that man -- Derek Carr -- had broken into his home. Prosecutors say Johnson was angry and delivered repeated blows to Carr after he was down. We counted at least 10 of them. Some are more brutal and vicious than others. All these led to prosecutors charging Johnson with a misdemeanor assault. He faces a felony charge as well for tampering with evidence. A contractor working in that northwest Houston neighborhood saw what was going on that February day and took out her cell phone to record the whole thing. Perhaps, though, what's most troubling is heard at the end of the video. Johnson is heard saying, "Y'all gonna call the police?" To which the contractor says, "Aren't you the police?" Johnson responds: "Yeah." Johnson spent more than 23 years with HPD before retiring a month after the incident. Johnson turned himself into authorities Friday but will not go through probable cause court.

A Queens baby shower ended with a spray of gunfire that left two revelers critically wounded. The shots rang out on 101st St. near 32nd Ave. in Corona around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, police said. A gunman enraged by a post-party argument stalked the couple back to their BMW 5X SUV before pumping seven bullets into the side of their parked vehicle, cops said. Incredibly, a 14-year-old boy riding in the backseat emerged unscathed — and actually notified police about the attack after the bleeding driver sped a half-mile to the 115th Precinct stationhouse. Anthony Lugo, 31, and Mildred Neal, 43, had walked a few blocks from Elite Class Events on Northern Blvd. to their parked luxury car with the teenage boy. Family members and a police source said the boy was Neal’s son. Once the couple climbed in the front seats and the teen got in behind them, a dark-colored pickup truck appeared suddenly alongside their SUV — and the gunman inside opened fire, cops said. “That guy is something else. Very dangerous,” she said, her voice full of pain and anger. “He’s very bad. Very bad.” She said her daughter tirelessly tried to provide for her three children, working long shifts as a taxi driver, but Lugo took advantage of her. “She works very hard and he takes money from her. Oh my God,” she said. Five bullet holes were visible in the SUV’s shattered window, with another pocking the front door. The wounded Lugo slammed on the gas and headed directly to the Queens precinct, stopping just past the front entrance of the building on Northern Blvd. The teen left the two gunshot victims inside the car and bolted inside to notify cops about the shooting. “My parents just got shot!” the boy exclaimed to officers at the stationhouse, according to a police source. By the time the BMW reached the precinct, Neal was already unconscious in the passenger seat, a source said. Lugo was hit in the elbow and stomach, while Neal took bullets in the back and arm, sources said. The shooter took off in the truck following the surprise attack, police said. Sources said that Lugo knew the gunman although the nature of the argument was still unclear. No arrests were made, and both gunshot victims were taken to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition, officials said. Jara said that her daughter had a lung removed and will require more surgery for her wounds. “She can’t talk too much,” she said. “I feel so bad but thank god she’s alive.” The woman said she had warned her daughter about her relationship with Lugo. “I told her, ‘Don’t hang out with that guy,’” she said. “I told her, ‘You will be in a problem with that guy. You will be in danger.’”
