CRT is the history that is 'doomed to fail' because it's totally Afro-Centric, assuming that all of history should revolve around the experiences of a few Black individuals in the past. It is divisive, and thus inappropriate for K1-12 grades.

I like it when liberals decide to be truly pro choice over their own body and visit a bridge.
your idea of fascism is skewed. My example of fascism is spot on accurate. Democrats are the fascist here in the USA. Why do you have to pick on white people? Oh, I see, Democrats are fascist AND racist.
Two examples of fascism in the USA. One, forcing your citizens to buy health insurance. Two, you're fired if you don't get the vacks. Two examples of fascism in the USA brought to you by the Democrat Party. Weiselburg has been jailed for giving his clients a free town car when they are in the city. Very petty. You must have been indoctrinated somewhere down the line.
Could MSNBC ever have a column that it did not refer to ANY republican organization as "racist" or "white supremist"? You guys really need to get a dictionary and get some new words. You have worn your old words out. I mean we stopped calling you "brainless" in place of "miniature minds". Now see that's progress! You should try it sometime.
No, it's part of the lies, accusations, and gas-lighting that make up left-wing marxist propaganda. And it's too convenient for lazy pseudo-journalists that occupy that mental institute.
Bring it. Push the button, push the button, The earth needs a reset to get rid of all this corruption
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, push the button and get rid of all of us
lol we are watching the deep fake right here.Really must think people are dumb. When Biden is in jail we might believe things are back on track. You know for the 2 times he actually did what Trump is been witch hunted for as VP. You know the stuff he admitted on TV and bragged about
The Plot was to expose this stuff and did well doing so
Brunson vs. Adams SCOTUS case. SCOTUS will have another day to charge and remove Joe and most members of congress with treason.
Before embarrassing yourself research the case! You might me surprised what's at risk. It goes to conference January 6th. It calls for amongst other things the removal of 94 Senators, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris as well as over 100 members of the House of Representatives for being part of the conspiracy to rig the 2020 elections and overthrow the duly elected leader of the United States.
Brunson vs Adams could be the black swan event that leaves liberals in tears.
Republicans abolished slavery and how's that working for America. Why don't you visit Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore
And as the dems rush to WWlll it will bring nuclear annilation to all the big blue cities and the dems. All that will be left is real Americans. That will be the great substitution. We will be rid of all the arrogant, want to be elitist communist indoctrinated.
Ohio man fatally shoots neighbor ‘because he thought he was a Democrat’
A southwest Ohio man shot and killed his neighbor because he believed he was a Democrat, according to the victim's family.
Austin Gene Gibbs was taken into custody by Butler County sheriff's deputies just before noon Monday after the shooting was reported in Okeana, and investigators found Anthony Lee King dead from multiple gunshot wounds, reported the Journal-News.
“My neighbor just shot my dad,” the victim's son told dispatchers. "[He] has come over multiple times making statements. He’s insane.”
The caller's mother sobbed in the background and told dispatchers the 43-year-old King had been cutting grass and doing yardwork when she inside to let their dog out, and that's when she heard gunshots.
“I look in the backyard and that man is walking away from my husband and my husband is on the ground,” the woman told dispatchers. “He has come over like four times confronting my husband because he thought he was a Democrat, Why, why … Please, I don’t understand.”
The 26-year-old Combs was arrested a short time later while driving away from the shooting scene with his father.
His bond was set at $950,000 on suspicion of murder.
LET ME ASK THIS ONE SIMPLE QUESTION, AT WHAT POINT IN TIME HAVE THE DEMOCRATS BEEN KIND OR COMPASSIONATE TO MAGA CONSERVATIVES? AT WHAT POINT HAVE DEMOCRATS BEEN KIND TO ANY PERSON WHO DOESN'T FOLLOW THEIR NARRATIVE TO THE LETTER? I WAS A DEMOCRAT UNTIL 2018. I HAD TO LEAVE THE PARTY BECAUSE OF THE PEOPLE IN THE PARTY. DEMOCRATS ARE NOT KIND, LOVING, OR COMPASSIONATE. SELF SERVING, SELFISH, LOATHSOME, AND HATE FILLED IS WHAT I EXPERIENCE FROM DEMOCRATS DAILY, SO WE ARE FIGHTING BACK BY THE RULES YOU HAVE SET IN PLACE, AND WE ARE WINNING, AND WE WILL WIN. THE BIDEN'S UNMASKING IS ABOUT TO BEGIN. A MIGHTY MOVE AGAINST THIS FRAUDULENT GOVERNMENT IS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE. THIS FRAUDULENT GOVERNMENT IS COMING DOWN, THE BIDEN IS FALLING!
DEMOCRATS ARE THE FASCIST; THEY ARE JUST NOT CAPABLE OF COMPREHENDING HOW VILE THEY ARE. AS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN CALLED EVERY NAME IN THE BOOK BY DEMOCRATS FOR SIMPLY HAVING MY OWN OPINION I CAN TESTIFY IN COURT ABOUT IT. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT I SHOULD JUST DIE AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS, SO DO NOT TELL ME HOW WONDERFUL YOUR DONKEY PARTY IS. YOU DO NOT GET TO PROJECT YOUR SICKNESS ONTO US.
DEMOCRATS SUPPORT HUMAN TRAFFICKING, INFLATION, RECESSION, RISING PRICES, A BORDER INVASION, LEAVING AMERICANS BEHIND, AND TRADING AN INTERNATIONAL ARMS DEALER FOR A BALLER. I WOULDN'T BRAG ABOUT THE PARTY IF I WERE YOU.
TRUTH ISN'T AN INSULT, IT IS FACTUAL, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOU THINK, TRUTH IS STILL TRUTH. NAME ONE THING I SAID THAT ISN'T FACT, I'LL WAIT. DEMOCRATS SUPPORT A MAN THAT LIKES SMALL CHILDREN, BUT NOT IN A GOOD WAY, AND HAS DONE NOTHING BUT DESTROY OUR COUNTRY. YOU HAVE NO MORAL HIGH GROUND TO STAND ON. THE FACT THAT DEMOCRATS STOOP TO ACTING LIKE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KIDS BY CALLING NAMES AND BULLYING PROVES MY POINT THAT MUCH MORE. MAGA, ALL DAY, MAGA EVERYDAY, ULTRA MEGA MAGA!!!!!!MAKE AMERICA GODLY AGAIN! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! AMERICA SHALL BE SAVED, AND THE UNMASKING OF THE BIDEN IS ABOUT TO BEGIN. ENJOY!

For all the money Ukraine is robbing us for, I gotta say I'm hoping Russia turns them into a parking lot. Don't wish it on the Ukrainian people, just the Ukrainian oligarchs and leaders, take them out.
I'm with Tucker 1000%. No one talks about the FACT that Zelensky banned political opponents, all media that questions him, and now he has banned the Largest Christian Orthox group in Ukraine. You can actually be put in prison by the Ukranian government for worshipping god in a way they don't like and this is a democracy? This little guy doesn't think that 46 BILLION is enough US taxpayer dollars? The American people are being played and the only ones benefitting are the Defense Contractors.
[[Poster’s note: I couldn’t get a direct link to the comment in question since I don’t think there’s a way to do that on MSN, so I’m posting the article it was in response to with the comments section enabled. Apologies for the inconvenience]]
AOC and big Mike. Nothing would change Obama is running the country right now. you don't think Joe is making and decisions, do you?
Turkey moves to deport Syrian migrants for eating bananas in a ‘provocative’ way on TikTok
The Turkish government has opened deportation proceedings against at least seven Syrian nationals accused of eating bananas in a “provocative” way while participating in a TikTok video challenge, in a move that underscores rising hostility toward Syrians in a country with a reputation for being welcoming to refugees.
The challenge was inspired by an Oct. 17 encounter on the streets of Istanbul that was captured on video, during which a man complained that he could not afford bananas, a staple that has fallen out of the reach of many consumers amid a poor economy. Turning to a female Syrian student, he alleged that refugees from Syria were buying the fruit by the “kilos,” a reference to false rumors that displaced people were living in luxury off Turkish taxpayer largesse.
In response, Syrians in Turkey and elsewhere posted videos of themselves eating bananas to poke fun at the incident. In one video, a group of young Syrians sat around the room, chuckling as they ate their fruit.
On Thursday, local media reported that immigration authorities in Istanbul had detained 11 Syrians involved with the videos on charges of “inciting or humiliating the [Turkish] people with hatred and hostility,” in an action that an Amnesty International coordinator called “appalling.”
Amid double-digit inflation there has been a “considerable decrease” in “acceptance and solidarity” in recent years.
Turkish people have started looking at Syrian refugees as a “scapegoat,”. The U.N. refugee agency report suggested that more than 80 percent of Turks believe displaced Syrians thrive on government subsidies.
The mounting hostility toward Syrian refugees in Turkey has translated into violence. Law enforcement detained 76 people in August, after a mob stormed an Ankara neighborhood where many Syrian immigrants live, overturning cars, vandalizing businesses and chanting anti-Syrian slogans.
Johnston attempted to buy soap at Dave's No Frills grocery store in Dawson's Creek, British Columbia. Refusing to wear a mask, Johnston was asked repeatedly by staff to leave, as is standard protocol. The conflict spilled into the parking lot, where a passer-by caught Johnston assaulting one of the store employees on camera. The video shows Johnston shoving his phone into the employee's face, prompting the employee to bat his arm away. Johnston responds by punching the employee in the face. A second video shows Johnston attempting to make a "citizen's arrest" on the same employee, alleging assault—presumably in reference to when the employee batted Johnston's arm. Meanwhile, the employee calls the police on Johnston. "You're under arrest for assault," Johnston says to the employee, who ignores him. "I have to take this man into custody," Johnston insists to the camera, grabbing the employee's elbow. "This is a citizen's arrest for assault times two!" The conflict between Johnston and the employee continues while they wait for the police to arrive—each believing the other will be arrested. A passerby attempts to intervene, and Johnston places him under "citizen's arrest" as well. Johnston, however, is shocked when police arrive and immediately put him in handcuffs. In the video, Johnston protests his arrest on assault charges as an officer leads him to the police vehicle. "Guys," he pleads, "I have made a citizen's arrest." "You guys have to take him into custody now," Johnston tells the officers, referring to the store employee. "No, we don't," replies the officer.
Johnston is running for mayor of Calgary in their upcoming fall election. In the meantime, Johnston—who is self-described on his website as "Canada's MOST CENSORED MAN"—continues to post videos of himself entering businesses without his mask.
William McCall Calhoun Jr., a Georgia attorney proud of his involvement in the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol Complex, was denied bail in thundering terms by a federal court on Thursday after the judge determined he was a threat to the community.
“He has been corrupted by, or seduced, by a dangerous and violent ideology that considers the United States to be in a state of civil war, that considers everyone who voted for a Democrat to be worthy of execution, that considers every government official and agent to be part of a ‘deep state’ who need to be opposed by so-called patriots,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles H. Weigle intoned near the end of Calhoun’s bail hearing after denying the defense request for home confinement and GPS monitoring in lieu of pre-trial detention.
“The language used in those posts is extremely violent,” the judge added–referring to a series of Twitter, Facebook and Parler posts authored by the Americus, Georgia-based attorney of some 30 years.
In one post cited by the government, Calhoun wrote of his desire to place Black Lives Matter protesters in “body bags.” He said he wanted those racial justice advocates “stacked up high.”
“Standing by and when Trump makes the call, many heavily-armed patriots [will deal with] the Chicom Democrats,” another post said. “Oh yeah, the military and police are on our side.”
Calhoun also repeatedly expressed his desire for “violent retribution against the media and the Democrats,” and told one Black Lives Matter supporter on Twitter that they “won’t be laughing when patriots go door to door executing you commies.”
“God is on Trump’s side,” the veteran lawyer wrote in a separate post. “God is not on the Democrats’ side. And if patriots have to kill 60 million of these communists, it is God’s will.”
Donald Trump on Monday said China was laughing at the United States for being "woke" over the racism row concerning Dr. Seuss books, while "trying to kill us in so many ways."
Trump was asked on Fox News on Monday why he was continuing to air his views on politics after leaving the White House, which represents a break from presidential tradition.
He replied that he felt compelled to because President Joe Biden's administration along with progressive Democratic lawmakers, were "destroying our country."
"When China looks at woke they see the biggest problem we have is Dr Seuss - in the meantime they are building factories and trying to kill us in so many different ways," Trump told Fox News on Monday.
"They laugh at us. They think we're so ... Frankly, they think our country is stupid when they look at this, when our competitors look at what's going on in our country. Taking down the statues to great heroes and so many other things."
The president was a frequent critic of China during his time in office, most recently criticised for its role in the coronavirus pandemic, which he has referred to as "the kung flu" and the "China virus."
The publicity caused several Dr. Seuss books which had not been pulled from sale to rise to the top of Amazon's list of best-selling books, a fact which was celebrated by Sen. Cruz, who posted a picture of the list on Twitter with the caption: "Could Biden try to ban my book next?"
RE: It's depressing that this even needs saying: Parents of trans children are not abusers
Why allow diviant and abnormal behaviour to become common and fashionable - just because of media and social media articles?
medically altering, or blocking puberty is the very definition of child abuse. I suggest anyone thinking otherwise should listen to the first hand testimonials of individuals who under went these procedures to realise as adults it was a huge mistake. One of the saddest things you will ever listen to. It is our job as parents to nurture, protect and prepare our children for the world.
I wish I didn’t need to say this *but* parents of trans-children under the age of puberty *are* child abusers. Furthermore, in many cases parents of trans-for children under 18 are *often* child abusers. Children need to work out their sexual orientation for themselves and make the decisions for themselves when they are adults and old enough to understand the *true* implications.
Yet another biased, totally single sided article.
No mention of the enormous harm these treatments can cause later in life when the child changes its mind or simply becomes mature enough to understand the enormity of the mistake it has made.
What a disgrace. I blame the government and liberal permissiveness. When I was at school there was no such thing as trans children. There were just boys and girls. Who on earth is polluting the minds of our youth? This is a travesty of a mockery of a sham.
Yes they are. Twisting young minds and confusing them about their orientation and blocking puberty is abuse and should be dealt with as such.
Parents of trans children are abusers, as are the doctors that suppprt them in this sexual abuses of children.
The Antioch City Council held a special meeting on Friday evening to decide if they should fire the chair of the Planning Commission. The commission chairman Ken Turnage II said Covid-19 is nature’s way of taking out the homeless, the weak, and the old and it should be allowed to happen.
Turnage II said it’s his personal opinion, which he posted on his personal Facebook page. He defended his action by saying it’s his freedom of speech.
“I don’t feel like I did anything wrong that I should resign for. I didn’t say anything negative about the city,” said Turnage II.
He came under fire after he posted the lengthy Facebook post on April 23rd. He has since taken it down because of death threats.
In part, he wrote “we have our old, we have our weak and we have our drains on our resources. This virus is targeting those sectors of our population. But as species, for our nation and as a planet we would strengthen when this is all settled.”
His post went on to say, “we would lose many elderly, that would reduce burdens in our defunct social security system, health care cost (once the wave subsided), make jobs available for others and it would also free up housing in which we are in dire need of.”
“I believe in ecological balance. If something happens from nature and it takes its course on the human species, that’s what it does,” Turnage II told KPIX 5 in an interview outside of his construction company. “I don’t regret posting or saying what I believe or what my opinions are.”
Turnage II said he’s not discriminating against any groups. He simply wanted to lift the shelter-in-place order so the economy can get back on track.
“To people to get so offended by a personal opinion, it says a lot about what has happened to our society,” said Turnage II.
“It’s a reckless thing to say. It’s just very appalling,” said Antioch Councilwoman Monica E. Wilson.
Councilwoman Wilson and Mayor Sean Wright asked Turnage II to resign, without success.
“That statement was very divisive. Now is the time for us to come together, to show the community that we value their life,” said Councilwoman Wilson.
Councilman Lamar Thorpe said as public officials, they’re representing more than 110,000 residents in Antioch and words do matter.
“We received so many emails and telephone calls from senior citizens who are outraged and in absolute disbelief when they hear things that remind them of Nazi Germany,” said Councilman Thorpe.
There are five people on the city council. It takes three votes to fire Turnage II.
An elected official in Clackamas County, Oregon has doubled down on her criticism of Gov. Kate Brown's coronavirus restrictions, comparing them to slavery.
Tootie Smith, the incoming chairwoman of the Clackamas Board of County Commissioners, took to Facebook over the weekend to criticize Brown after the governor announced new restrictions in the state to combat a surge in COVID-19 cases.
"My family will celebrate Thanksgiving with as many family and friends as I can find," Smith, a Republican, wrote in a post on Saturday. "Gov. Brown is WRONG to order otherwise."
In an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday night, Smith stood by the comment.
"This is a travesty that's happening in our state," Smith told Tucker Carlson. "How dare Gov. Brown think she's going to come out, send police into people's home and arrest them and fine them for having a Thanksgiving meal with their family."
Smith then went so far as to compare the Democratic governor's restrictions to slavery.
"I think our people have the intelligence, the education and the independence to make their own decisions," Smith added. "We are adults. We do not need to be treated as second-rate slaves in our own homes."
A wealthy televangelist explains his fleet of private jets: ‘It’s a biblical thing’
In the waning days of 2015, renowned televangelist Kenneth Copeland laid out exactly why he needs a luxury private jet to do his job: you can’t “talk to God” while riding commercial.
Criticized at the time for his use of extravagant planes, Copeland argued travel for his work would be difficult, nay, impossible without them. The Texas-based preacher invoked his mentor, prosperity gospel preacher Oral Roberts, who Copeland said faced unsolicited requests for prayer when he flew on public airliners, “agitating his spirit.”
“You can’t manage that today, in this dope-filled world, get in a long tube with a bunch of demons,” Copeland told fellow televangelist Jesse Duplantis, who’s faced similar backlash for asking his followers to bankroll a $54 million jet. “And it’s deadly.”
Copeland’s defense, viewed by millions and widely mocked at the time, did little to help his case. Many figured the “demons” he spoke of were the same people he was asking for donations. The preacher was asked to clarify his remarks last month by “Inside Edition” reporter Lisa Guerrero, and the exchange has recently gone viral, reigniting conversations about televangelists and the tax-exempt status of churches.
Captured on video confronting Copeland as he got into a car, Guerrero pressed him repeatedly on his 2015 comments, at one point asking: “Do you really believe that humans are demons?”
“No I do not, and don’t you ever say I did,” Copeland responded, visibly perturbed. He added, “It’s a biblical thing, it’s a spiritual thing, it doesn’t have anything to do with people. People? I love people. Jesus loves people. But people get pushed in alcohol. Do you think that’s a good place for a preacher to be and prepare to preach?”
The questioning centered around Copeland’s Gulfstream V jet, which he announced he’d purchased from Tyler Perry in Jan. 2018. Declining to state how much he spent on the aircraft, which is one of three in his possession, Copeland said Perry made the plane “so cheap for me I couldn’t help but buy it.” He again asserted the plane was necessary for his work, which has sent him to nearly every continent and allowed him to spread his message to thousands of people.
“If I flew commercial, I’d have to stop 65 percent of what I’m doing, that’s the main reason,” he said.
Copeland said he was a “very wealthy man” and acknowledged using the private jets to travel to his vacation homes. Guerrero asked how he would respond to those who say preachers shouldn’t live so luxuriously.
“They’re wrong,” he replied “It’s a misunderstanding of the bible that … if you go into the old covenant, do you think the Jewish people believe you should be broke?”
Guerrero follows up: “Are you saying that Jewish people appreciate money more?”
“They believe in wealth,” Copeland said.
“Some people would find that offensive,” Guerrero responds.
“Wait a minute now, I’m not talking about some people,” Copeland explains, before mentioning the Abrahamic Blessing. “I’m talking about the bible.”
Deaths of Harapan reps a divine sign from Allah, says BN man
Former Selangor opposition leader Mohamed Satim Diman has suggested that the deaths of Pakatan Harapan elected representatives is a sign from above."Why are there so many by-elections? Because the incumbents passed away. It is curious... where are they from? Harapan," he told a ceramah in Semenyih last night."They are not from BN. Are they any BN elected representatives who have passed away?"Satim, the Puchong Umno chief, also pointed out that all the deaths occurred in Selangor.
A Michigan candidate for US Senate has proposed arming homeless people with pump-action shotguns in an effort to reduce crime.
Brian Ellison, who is running against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow, says homeless people are “constantly victims of violent crime” and providing them with firearms would provide a deterrent.
Ellison, a Libertarian who is expected to be the party’s candidate in the November midterm election, said he had settled on pump-action shotguns for practicality purposes.
“Frankly I think the ideal weapon would be a pistol,” he told the Guardian, “but due to the licensing requirements in the state we’re going to have a hard enough time getting homeless people shotguns as it is.
“Getting them pistols is probably next to impossible. The pistols need to be registered, people have to have addresses.”
Carrying a concealed pistol is illegal without a permit, Ellison said, “whereas open-carrying a long gun is completely legal”.
“So we thought that pump-action shotguns were a suitable alternative to a pistol.”
A pastor this week defended GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore for pursuing "younger ladies," following accusations that Moore harassed and assaulted teenage girls when he was in his 30s.
Pastor Flip Benham suggested Monday on an Alabama radio show that there was nothing wrong with dating younger women, saying that Moore never did so without their parents' permission.
"The lady that he's married to now, Ms. Kayla, is a younger woman. He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that's true, that's straight and he looked for that," Benham told radio hosts Matt Murphy and Andrea Lindenberg in an interview first highlighted by the liberal media watchdog Right Wing Watch.
CHICAGO - FBI agents are talking to Des Plaines police about a Facebook post in which a Des Plaines man allegedly threatened to lynch U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson.
Special Agent Garrett Croon said Tuesday that FBI agents "are aware of a social media posting generated in Des Plaines, IL and are in contact with local authorities" - potentially raising the stakes for 54-year-old Tom Keevers, who denies posting the racist message on Facebook last week.
Keevers on Monday told the Chicago Tribune that he was set up by a stranger who created a phony Facebook post attributed to him and then shared it on Twitter, where it quickly went viral. But he gave conflicting accounts, at times saying he had never threatened to lynch Wilson and at other times saying he could not remember what he wrote in a since-deleted thread about the congresswoman, while insisting the post appeared to him to be a harmless "joke."
Des Plaines police said Monday that they were investigating the post, which reads "Need ten good men to help carry out a lynching. Must have own horse and saddle. Rope will be provided."
Tuesday's FBI statement pointedly says the post was "generated in Des Plaines," a line that Croon stood by when told that Keevers denies authoring the post.
Call her Gwyneth the Vampire Repeller.
Just in time for Halloween, when all sorts of nasty spirits are out, Gwyneth Paltrow unveils “Psychic Vampire Repellent” on her lifestyle website, Goop, so users can remove negative energies from their life.
The pseudo-holistic product is a “protection mist” that promises to “banish bad vibes” and “shield you from the people who may be causing them.”
Ingredients include “sonically tuned water” (whatever that is), rosewater, sea salt, rosemary, juniper, lavender, ruby, bloodstone, moonlight, and love. Seriously.
The product features a disclaimer that it has not been evaluated by the FDA and should not replace the advice of a medical professional. Obviously, as a medical professional would definitely recommend garlic and sunlight as ingredients. That’s just good vampire hunting.
A related product is a “Chill Child - Kid Calming Mist,” which you can “spray into the air around your wild child’s aura to restore peace to the environment.”
So when Timmy is having a tantrum, just spray him with Chill Child and all will be well. Or you may have to grab the Vampire Repellent.
Both products run for $30 for a 3.4 oz bottle and were developed by Paper Crane Apothecary.
Paltrow also opened her first permanent brick-and-mortar Goop location in Los Angeles at Brentwood Country Mart over the weekend. Called “Goop Lab,” the store sells the infamously Bohemian and bizarre products Paltrow sells on her site like Moonlight Catalyst, an anti-aging serum with fermented pumpkin enzymes and ashwagandha dietary supplement, which promotes immue health and “sexual vitality.”
Authorities: Gold miners at a bar bragged about slaughtering members of a reclusive Brazilian tribe
The outside world might never have heard about the suspected massacre if not for some barroom boasting by a group of miners fresh from working an illegal gig in the Amazon jungle.
The garimpeiros had bragged that they’d come across members of a reclusive, uncontacted Amazonian tribe near Brazil’s border with Peru and Colombia, authorities say.
The tribe members were greater in number there were as many as 10 but the gold miners said they’d gotten the better of them and killed the entire lot, said Carla de Lello Lorenzi, communications officer for Survival International in Brazil.
The miners cut the tribe members’ bodies so that they wouldn’t float, Lorenzi said, then dropped them into the Jandiatuba River.
The miners had collected tools and jewelry from the indigenous dead, corroborating their story.
An unidentified person who overheard the story was disturbed by it, recorded the miners’ conversation and turned the audio over to authorities. They have since launched an investigation into what, if confirmed, would be one of the largest mass murders of uncontacted people in decades.
Advocates for stricter protective measures say the suspected massacre is evidence that the Brazilian government isn’t doing enough to safeguard the more than 100 vulnerable tribes that have never made contact with the outside world and have no desire to.
“If these reports are confirmed, [Brazilian President Michel Temer] and his government bear a heavy responsibility for this genocidal attack,” said Survival International’s director, Stephen Corry. Corry said the government has slashed funds for an agency that protects the tribes, leaving them “defenseless against thousands of invaders gold miners, ranchers and loggers who are desperate to steal and ransack their lands.”
“All these tribes should have had their lands properly recognized and protected years ago the government’s open support for those who want to open up indigenous territories is utterly shameful, and is setting indigenous rights in Brazil back decades.”
According to the New York Times, the government closed five of the 19 bases it uses to monitor uncontacted tribes and prevent incursions by miners and loggers.
Three of the closed bases were in the Javari Valley, home to more uncontacted tribes than anywhere else on Earth.
For obvious reasons, little is known about the indigenous group involved in the suspected killings.
Locally, Lorenzi said, they’re known as Fleicheros, or “the ones who throw arrows,” but their language and customs and how they interact with at least two other uncontacted tribes in the immediate area remain a mystery.
But the tribe members are not the only people in that part of the Amazon, Lorenzi said. It is illegal to mine there, but prospectors have brought earth-moving equipment to the area, leaving giant craters that can be seen from the sky.
They also bring violence, according to the government, which says garimpeiros are responsible for threats, child prostitution and killings.
Even their nonviolent presence in the protected lands can be dangerous to uncontacted tribes, which lack the immunity to fight the diseases that miners and loggers bring.
Any contact can be contentious and even violent, with the uncontacted usually getting the worst of it because, as Lorenzi told The Post, “it’s usually bows and arrows against guns.”
Details about those contacts remain hazy, because they involve two groups of people unlikely to speak to authorities.
Still, tales of the worst violence sometimes get out. Survival International documented the story of Marisa Yanomami and Leida Yanomami, survivors of the Haximu massacre in 1993:
“The gold-miners killed our brothers and sisters and also killed our father with machetes; some of them were killed with guns,” they told the organization. “After the first 10 people died, at the start of the war, we moved to another place to hide and stayed in our shabono (communal house), but the next day, the miners appeared again.”
In a statement on its website, the Brazilian National Indian Foundation, or Funai, said it had prompted the federal public prosecutor’s office to investigate the most recent allegation.
The government has also trumpeted its latest operation against incursions on protected lands. In August, it shut down an illegal mining operation. Soldiers destroyed four dredging machines and fined mining operators $1 million for environmental crimes.
Investigations are tough undertakings. The site of the suspected killing, for example, is a 12-hour trek by boat during the dry season. And it involves a group of people with their own language and a centuries-long wariness of outsiders.
Even the details of the killing are sketchy, Lorenzi said. And the vacuum of information speaks to another fear advocates have: that these types of violent interactions happen a lot more frequently than is reported.
“That’s highly probable, yes, because it’s so difficult to document,” she said. “It’s the uncontacted versus illegal miners who think they can get away with anything.
“Unfortunately, a lot of the time they do.”
Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary including war to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”
(Not fundie per se, but since Juggalos are kinda a cult, I am submitting anyway.)
An ax-wielding man demanding to hear an Insane Clown Posse song was arrested Monday after an hours-long standoff in front of Kiss 108 studios in Medford, Mass., WBZ-TV reported.
A little after 1:30 p.m. Monday, police responded to 911 calls about a man in a red car who was wielding weapons and complaining about his failed attempt to request My Axe by the Insane Clown Posse.
"He got out of his car with a machete, stopped a girl who worked up on the second floor and said 'I want you to play a song for me,'" Doreen Schaivone WBZ-TV, the CBS station in Boston.
State police and SWAT officers with the North East Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council spent three-hours trying to take the man, later identified by police as 38-year-old Richard Newton, into custody NECN-TV reported.
According to NECN-TV, people reported that Newton was drinking beer in his car.
Dylan Sprague, vice president of programming at iheartradio.com, which owns the radio station, told the Boston Herald, Newton never contacted the station about playing the song, but said employees heard him talking about it.

Marison Griffiths dont bet on it bud your good buddy likes tossing peeps out of helicopters expect your children to be next yeash
Keith Biodrowski Yes, but they were bad people. Corrupt people of power who steal aide money and corrupt cops who aid drug pushers. He was Mayor of Davao before he took office and he cleaned that place up very well. And he's doing a hell of a job so far. I wish a few American officials fell out of a helicopter from time to time.
Trevor Davies: And a typical response from a hissy fitter! You want to give a Country up to an un-elected clique who want a modern version of the Louis XIV, Napoleone Bounaparte, Wilhelm II, Adolf Hitler, type of super state? Then I suggest you move to one of those Countries. This Country had fought all those above and lost almost two million men and more than three times as many wounded, with countless others affected and cast into despair, to keep Europe free from dictatorship, Oh! And that Britain stays a democratic, independent nation and where the will of the people is respected, and that will was to get out of the E.U.
And who the hell are you to say why people voted the way they did? Gut feeling is just as much part of rational thought as just using ones brains. in fact, using the gut and the brain is doubly advantageous, and if one throws in the heart too it's threefold,
Before this week, few people knew about what went on inside the brick walls of the Word of Life Christian Church in the village of Chadwicks, within the town of New Hartford, New York. But the recent beating to death of Lucas Leonard, a teenage church member, has begun to pull back the veil on the mysterious group, and details from law enforcement of the incident are consistent with what academics call “religious abuse” and possibly cult-like practices.
Police say that following Sunday Mass on October 11, six church members, including the 19-year-old’s parents Bruce and Deborah Leonard, beat him so he would confess his sins during a “counseling session.” The beating was so bad that family members eventually took Lucas to a hospital, where he died from blunt force trauma to his abdomen, back, thighs and genitals. Law enforcement later found that his brother, Christopher, also showed signs of assault. He too was hospitalized.
Deborah and Bruce Leonard face manslaughter charges and are each being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. A felony hearing was scheduled for Friday. Four more church members, including the boys’ half sister, face assault charges.

Are you completely insane? Suicide is a very, VERY big no no, as stated in the Bible. Yes, it's between her and God. That doens't mean she's going to heaven. And it doesn't mean we have to support it or legalize it. Are you trying to send people to hell? Do you have any idea what hell is really like? This is nuts. Where does it end? My dog died and I don't feel like living anymore? I stubbed my toe and I don't want to wait for it to heal? You people are nuts.
