In a Sunday MSNBC interview, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, said that “radical left” college students are also to blame for the spike in anti-Semitism in the United States, Raw Story reports.
Dermer blamed “both sides” for what resulted in the largest attack on Jews on American soil in history.
“I see a lot of bad people on both sides who attack Jews,” he said.
“One of the big forces in college campuses today is anti-Semitism. And those anti-Semites are usually not neo-Nazis, on college campuses. They’re coming from the radical left.”
The ambassador did not produce any evidence for his claims, nor did he back them up with data.
It remains unclear what group on the left Dermer is attempting to blame for the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting, Raw Story notes.
When Chris and Dana White of Florida departed from Mobile, Alabama for a three-day cruise of the Caribbean, it never occurred to them that the confines of their cabin would be anything but private. They were shocked to find a recording device hidden in TV wires last October while aboard the Carnival Fantasy. It was aimed directly at their bed.
Chris White described their initial reaction as one of disbelief according to USA Today. His first reaction was to ask his wife, “Is that what I think it is?” The couple said that it was hooked up and operating. They contacted the security team onboard and used a cell phone to record the staff member examining and then disconnecting the device. All the while, Mr. White said he just kept thinking that he couldn’t believe it was really happening to them. Dana White said she felt invaded.
The controversial social network platform with a far-right following that was thrust into national news this week after it was linked to the suspect in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting has pulled its website offline after domain provider GoDaddy gave it 24 hours to move to another service.
Other companies including PayPal, Medium, Stripe, and Joyent blocked Gab over the weekend after it emerged that suspect Robert Bowers, 46, who is accused of shooting dead 11 people and injuring several others at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, had a history of posting anti-Semitic messages on Gab, The Verge has reported.
“We have informed Gab.com that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service,” GoDaddy told The Verge in a statement. “In response to complaints received over the weekend, GoDaddy investigated and discovered numerous instances of content on the site that both promotes and encourages violence against people.”
When the Indianapolis Colts put out a congratulatory video for Adam Vinatieri when he became the NFL’s all-time leading scorer, there was one surprise among the line of Colts giving me a digital pat on the back – New England Patriots quarterback and current foe Tom Brady.
Vinatieri, who kicked for the Patriots as well as the Colts, passed Morton Andersen as the league’s new points leader with a 25-yard field goal just before halftime in the Colts road game against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, per ESPN.
The field goal allowed him to surpass Andersen’s old record of 2,544. He made two field goals and four extra points in the Colts 42-28 victory over the Raiders, improving Indianapolis’ record to 3-5 on the season.
His former Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy led the video cheers for Vinatieri along with former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Reggie Wayne, center Jeff Saturday and former defensive star Robert Mathis.
Jeffrey Myers, the rabbi of Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, wrote of finding joy in life in his final blog post before Saturday’s mass shooting, People is reporting.
Myers was not among the victims of the shooting, which claimed the lives of 11 people and injured seven others. By all accounts, the shooting was an act of hate, as alleged perpetrator Robert Bowers is believed to have been motivated by antisemitism and a desire to murder Jews.
In a glaring bit of irony, however, Myers’ final blog post before the shooting was an appeal to his readers to find joy in life.
In the post, titled “A Little Bit Of Joy,” Myers tells his readers that life is filled with sad events, such as funerals. But life is, hopefully, equally filled with joyous events – births, weddings. And Myers writes that we should prioritize the joyous events in our goals and in our memories.
Buttler High School is the latest scene of a school shooting. Currently, two students have been taken from the scene: one in police custody, the other, injured.
Few details are available at this time. The Independent provides a few details.
“”We have responded to a shooting at Butler High School this morning. There is one student that has been shot that was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries at this time,” the city’s police force said in a post on Facebook. “
Buttler High School is in a city called Matthews, 10 miles southeast of Charlotte. Parents are currently awaiting information from the police about when they can pick up their children. The location will be the Elevation Church on East Independence Boulevard in Matthews.
According to CNN, six passengers have been confirmed dead in the aftermath of an ill-fated Indonesian flight that reportedly crashed within minutes after take-off.
Lion Air flight JT 610 was carrying 189 people on Monday, October 29, when air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane 13 minutes into the flight. The plane had departed Jakarta — for what was intended to be a one-hour flight to Pangkal Pinang on the island of Bangka — when it crashed into the sea. It is not yet confirmed what caused the crash, although a spokesperson for AirNav Indonesia said that the pilot had requested permission to turn back and to return to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The pilot did not indicate that there was an emergency, however, and the flight did not appear to have changed course prior to the crash.
Political consultant and pundit who is currently serving as Counselor to President Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, claims that the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting was caused by general “anti-religiosity,” the Daily Beast reports.
To blame for what is the deadliest attack on Jews on American soil in history is not only “the anti-religiosity in this country that is somehow in vogue,” according to Conway, but also “making fun of people who express religion, the late-night comedians.”
Suspected Pittsburgh shooter Robert Bowers, who killed 11 and wounded six, reportedly told law enforcement: “They’re committing genocide to my people. I just want to kill Jews.”
There is no indication, however, that Bowers’ attack was motivated by his supposed anti-religious stances, nor is there any evidence to point to the conclusion that Bowers himself is irreligious.
Content posted to his alleged – and since deleted – Gab profile paints the suspected shooter as a xenophobic, racist, anti-Semitic white supremacist and conspiracy theorist.
Campbell Soup Company Vice President Kelly Johnston got canned after tweeting conspiracy theories about George Soros helping a migrant caravan coming to the United States. The Campell’s executive tweeted that the Soros-founded Open Society Foundations had funded the caravan, providing “troop carriers” and “rail cars” to support the group of migrants. According to Gizmodo, Johnston is no longer with the company.
“See those vans on the right? What you don’t see are the troop carriers and the rail cars taking them north. @OpenSociety planned and is executing this, including where they defecate. And they have an army of American immigration lawyers waiting at the border,” Johnston tweeted from an account that is no longer active.
The Open Society Foundations denied Johnston’s claim and questioned why the company would support someone spreading false information. Campbells distanced themselves from Johnston’s comment saying his views did not represent the company. A day later, CEO Keith McLoughlin sent a letter to the Open Society.
A class-action lawsuit filed in federal court on Monday, October 29, alleges that Donald Trump and his three children — Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka — benefited from allowing their images and collective reputation to be used in ventures that exploited struggling investors via shoddy business opportunities.
The New York Times reports that four plaintiffs,using pseudonyms to protect their identities, have come forth to accuse the president and his family of receiving payments from three multi-level marketing companies that targeted “economically marginalized people” for more than a decade. The suit claims that the alleged victims in the case found themselves each experiencing a “devastating and life-altering” impact from hundreds of thousands of dollars lost on “get-rich-quick schemes” that the Trump family name was used to promote as legitimate.
The man allegedly behind sending more than a dozen pipe bombs to prominent figures around the country reportedly had put together a list containing more than 100 people he considered to be potential targets. Cesar Sayoc Jr. made his first appearance in court on Monday in Florida and he is expected back in court again on Friday.
According to NBC News, the list that Cesar Sayoc Jr. created had dozens of names of entertainers, media figures, and politicians on it. Law enforcement officials will be contacting each of the people on the list to inform them of what they have learned.
Law enforcement is said to have started reaching out to these various organizations and individuals on Monday to alert them. In fact, the New York Times reports that they have been told one of their editors was on Sayoc’s target list.
Jimmy Carter made a personal plea to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp to leave office, as allegations of voter suppression continue to plague the gubernatorial candidate. According to NPR, the former president urged the Republican to remove himself from his current position, which oversees voter registrations, creating a serious potential for conflict of interest as Kemp runs for office against Stacey Abrams.
Carter made his appeal through a letter to the Georgia politician last Monday, speaking from his decades of experience assisting in elections abroad. Kemp has been under fire in recent weeks for alleged voter suppression after it was discovered that thousands of Georgia voters, primarily minorities, were purged from voter rolls or had their registrations frozen.
The former president said that Kemp’s resignation is essential for restoring voter confidence in the electoral process.
Michael Avenatti is in the crosshairs of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) again. The Senate Judiciary Committee Chair issued a second referral to the DOJ for Avenatti, whose client list includes Stormy Daniels and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick.
Grassley says that Avenatti issued a fraudulent sworn statement to the Judiciary Committee earlier this month. Grassley already previously referred Avenatti and Swetnick to the DOJ for providing false statements of Congress, obstruction a Senate investigation and conspiracy, according to CBS News.
Julie Swetnick was the third woman to accuse then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Specifically, Swetnick accused Kavanaugh of participating in gang rapes.
Avenatti and Swetnick issued a sworn statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee about Kavanaugh. Grassley says that statement “appears to be an outright fraud.”
When Michigan-based photographer Matthew Dippel was taking photographs in Yosemite National Park on October 6, it started out as an average day. However, when he snapped an image of what appeared to be a man proposing to his girlfriend at Taft Point, Matthew was determined to find out more about the romantic image.
And so, the hunt for the couple began. Matthew enlisted the help of the internet, posting the image to his Twitter account on October 17 in the hopes that the couple would come forward and reveal themselves.
“Twitter help, idk who these two are but I hope this finds them,” Matthew Dippel wrote in the image caption.
“I took this at Taft Point at Yosemite National Park, on October 6th, 2018.”
After the 1988 United States presidential election, intelligence services from behind what was then the communist “iron curtain” increased their spying on Donald Trump — a spy operation that had been going on since 1977 when he married his first wife, the former Ivana Zelníčková — believing that Trump would run for president, according to a new investigative report by the Guardian newspaper. One of the main sources for information on Trump for the spies was Trump’s own father-in-law, Miloš Zelníček.
The StB, as the Czechoslovakian secret police were known, took a strong interest in Trump, and may have been directed by or at least in coordination with the KGB — the infamous Soviet Union spy agency, according to the Guardian report, which was prepared in cooperation with the Czech Republic weekly magazine Respekt.
A drive-by shooting left a Republican headquarters in Volusia County, Florida riddled with bullets on Sunday night, Fox News reported.
According to Volusia County GOP Chair Tony Ledbetter, the building was hit at least four times during the shooting. All volunteers left the building at 4 p.m., however, so no one was injured. At least one window in the building was broken.
“I’m looking at the busted window that some nice Democrat did,” said Ledbetter Monday, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
“Republicans don’t have any beef about what we are doing. It’s the Democrats.”
The county’s Democratic Party chair, Jewel Dickson, also released a statement reacting to the shooting.
“It’s a sign of things going wrong. I would not be quick to blame a Democrat for doing that. It could be anybody angry.”
Deadly weapons including one that looks suspiciously like the bat used by Negan in AMC’s The Walking Dead were discovered in an abandoned car in England on October 28. While it is unclear what the planned usage of these weapons was, local police are just relieved that they were “taken off the streets.”
According to the report posted to Essex Police’s official Facebook page, PC Glensman and PC Britton were “patrolling South Ockendon in the early hours on Sunday, 28th October when a vehicle failed to stop.” After pursuing the vehicle, the suspects managed to evade police but their abandoned car was eventually located and identified as a stolen vehicle.
However, what they found inside the stolen car was particularly disturbing.
On Saturday, the Jewish community in Pittsburgh was rocked when 46-year-old Robert Gregory Bowers entered the Tree of Life synagogue during a Shabbat morning service with an AR-15 rifle and yelled “All Jews must die!” before opening fire on the approximately 80 people in the congregation.
By the time the police entered the building and were able to arrest Bowers, 11 people were dead, with another nine, including four police officers, wounded in the shootout. Bowers has since appeared in court on Monday, where, according to the New York Post, two of the survivors were in court to watch the proceedings.
Husband and wife Jean Clickner and Jon Pushinsky, who have been members of the Tree of Life synagogue for decades, decided they wanted to attend the arraignment so that they could represent their community and be a voice for those who were killed, especially as they had lost close friends in the shooting.
Her lawsuit was dismissed, and now Stormy Daniels will have to pay the price. In this case, the price is over $340,000. Yowzah.
Stormy Daniels filed suit against Donald Trump for defamation after he tweeted about her. She alleged that she and Trump had a sexual relationship, which he says did not happen. When he called her out on Twitter, saying she was pulling a “total con job,” she took legal action.
The suit was dismissed earlier this month, as Trump’s tweet is Constitutionally protected by the First Amendment that guarantees the right to free speech. In the dismissal, the judge granted Trump “reasonable” attorney fees from Daniels.
New information from a close friend of murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi indicates that he may have had proof that the Saudi government was making use of chemical warfare in their proxy war in Yemen.
According to the Express UK, the Middle Eastern academic, who asked not to be named, had spoken with Khashoggi a week before his murder, and stated that the journalist had seemed “unhappy and worried.” After a bit of prying, he had revealed that he was about to receive “documentary evidence” that the Saudis are using chemical weapons on both military persons and civilians in Yemen.
“When I asked him why he was worried, he didn’t really want to reply, but eventually he told me he was getting proof that Saudi Arabia had used chemical weapons. He said he hoped to be getting documentary evidence. All I can tell you is that the next thing I heard, he was missing.”
