2. New Orleans removes last of four statues linked to pro-slavery era
NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) – Crews in New Orleans on Friday used a crane to lift a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee off its pedestal as the city removed the last of four monuments its leaders see as racially offensive.
Most of a crowd of about 200 people cheered just after 6 p.m. (2300 GMT) as the bronze figure of Lee with crossed arms was pulled from atop a 60-foot marble column in the center of a busy traffic circle.
A few hours earlier, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu was half a mile away speaking to an audience that included civil rights leaders, city officials and activists, saying the statues celebrated “the lost cause of the Confederacy.”
(Now its time for the KKK to take down any statues of Rosa Parks. Anyone who doesn’t get this needs to watch the South Park 2 show series, “Cartoon Wars”.)
3. Some moderately interesting gossip level bullet points about Trump’s Saudi encounter. Mostly of interest because of the contrast between Trump’s style and Obama’s submissive posturing.
4. Michigan Senate votes to outlaw female genital mutilation
(The problem remains that we have allowed the leftist-Islamic alliance to trick us into thinking that claiming something illegal is required by a religion gives it an exemption from the law. It does not. So long as we fall for this, we will have to pass hundreds of finicky little laws everywhere to except the exemptions. Just one statement fixes it all. ‘All Americans have the right to practice their religions unimpeded by the state so long as those practices do not impede the rights of others or break any US laws)
5. ISIS tested ‘chemical weapons’ on live victims in horrific ‘Nazi style’ experiments, documents found at university in Mosul reveal
Horrifying experiments are being carried out on ISIS prisoners as the terror group tries to develop chemical weapons, documents reveal.
Iraqi special forces have uncovered details of the use of human ‘guinea pigs’ – who died during testing – after Mosul University was recaptured from jihadists.
Papers seen by The Times show terrorists have been using easily-obtainable pesticides to develop chemical weapons in experiments likened to Nazi research.
6. BBC will shop viewers to their BOSS if they post ‘offensive’ online comments in shock new policy blasted as ‘Orwellian’ by privacy campaigners
The BBC is threatening to report users to their bosses if they leave ‘offensive’ comments on one of the corporation’s websites, it has been revealed.
The draconian document warns that if the corporation deems a comment to be ‘offensive, inappropriate or objectionable’ then a user could have their ‘personal information’ used against them.
The policy – which a spokesman said is ‘standard’ – also applies to those who ‘engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BBC service’ – although the definition of what constitutes such a sanction is not clearly defined.
It further states that a ‘defamatory’ post could result in a user’s ’employer, school email/internet provider or law enforcement agency’ being informed directly.
And computing forever:
(This is a bullseye example of why in the US, anonymous political opinion is a tested right under the 1st amendment. The BBC must not exist as a state entity for one, but people must fund ways of establishing the ability to post to it under fake credentials. The fact is, all Western nations, perhaps Canada near or at the front of the pack, is rapidly developing classic totalitarian tendencies with new thought crimes being put into law, or so accepted by the culture that punishment is tantamount to medieval public humiliations without trial or any kind of due process.
A few years ago, had we said, [which we did] that this sort of thing would happen in the UK, people on the left would have dismissed us as paranoid and worse. Now that it is happening they will also deny that the parameters for what kind of speech will warrant having your info sent to people who can ruin your life will become increasingly wide and what is OK to say, believe and advocate for, will grow increasingly narrow till we all just shut up and watch the Kardashians.)
7. Proof that God is a house cat.
Thank you Buck, M., ML., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa, Richard and all. More to come.
From my point of view, this is the outcome that was desired by the politicians when they started threatening corporations with fines for not removing wrongspeak from their sites.
2 – This is the destruction of history, if the cultural Marxists don’t like some thing in history or if the facts of history prove they are the evil ones that history has to be removed. This is straight out of the Soviet Union and Maoist China. The destruction of the history helps destroy the culture and the destruction of the culture helps in the destruction of the nation. This is the goal of all of the big Marxists, they are out to destroy our nations, our cultures and our civilization,
Where they are running into problems is in the US where the 1st and 2nd Amendments are interfering with their destruction of the US, as long as one major nation remains free the rest of the Western Nations can regain their freedom. It may and in fact probably will require revolutions but freedom can spread from one nation to others as long as one remains free.
3 – Note how the King of Saudi seems to be bowing slightly to President Trump, in the Arabic culture you are either the master or the servant they don’t own Trump so he must be the master and must be treated as one. Obama showed he was the servant and thus was treated like one.
Here’s an incredible video from President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia. First of all, I can’t believe that his security detail allowed him in a room full of Mooslims armed with swords, ceremonial or otherwise. Watch their faces, especially Bannon’s. They look more than a little bit nervous. Also, notice how there are now women. Maybe they have an old fashioned harem some where.
I really question some of the things about this trip. Gotta say- why did he bring Ivanka & Jared? WTF was that about? We did not elect the daughter and son in law. I think this is insulting to Melania as well.
To be honest I see it differently.
His son in law is Jewish and his daughter was defiantly un veiled. To give credit where it is due, Michelle Obama also didn’t wear a head cloth in the KSA but I bet Obama wanted her to.
But check out how Jews are treated there if they can even get in.
So bringing this couple my have been an act of defiance over the very real apartheid antisemitic state that is the KSA.

7- Vaguely OT, but fish and more than usual honesty about Cuba. And the lies Jew-ish progs tell.
… Just before my flight home I took a long walk down the Malecón. It was muggy and the air was heavy with the odor of diesel. Fishermen of all ages dotted the pedestrian pathway, dipping their makeshift rods into the wavy, polluted water. Heading from the embassy-lined Miramar neighborhood toward the Riviera, Meyer Lansky’s famous Havana hotel, I noticed tiny fish bones and tails littering the sidewalk. The skeletons were the size of goldfish, no more than two and a half inches in length; the flesh had been devoured by whoever had caught these specimens, the remains flicked away like cigarette butts.
The day before, Rubén had told me that, island or no island, the locals never get to eat fish. I asked him where all the fish went. “I don’t know,” he replied with a cynical grin. “Maybe Raúl ate them all!”
