Tucker Carlson: I agree with you we are very divided. And maybe this is one of the reasons. A lot of this is disingenuous. Anyone who looks at cyber warfare will tell you, any honest person, will tell you the Chinese military is the primary culprit in the United States, hacked into the White House not too long ago… Nobody said anything. You guys in Hollywood sell your movies in China. You bow to the imperatives of their propaganda and censorship office. You change your movies to suit them. And yet no one says we’re at war with China.
Students at an elementary school in Mesa, Arizona, were forced to recite a “gender neutral” revision of the Declaration of Independence, local news reports.
The mother of a Salk Elementary School fourth grade student complained to administrators after learning her child’s teacher transformed the historic document to substitute the word “human” in areas where the Founding Fathers wrote “man.”
The students were then told to recite the revised edition.
The student’s mother, Elizabeth Vaillencourt, took to social media to complain about the teacher injecting her politics, which school officials claimed “hurt the teacher’s feelings.”
“I was hurt. I was mortified. I was disturbed at the fact that somebody is changing historical documents and nobody has the right to change our historical documents,” Vaillencourt told ABC affiliate KGUN9.com. “You teach what’s written. You don’t get to rewrite it and teach it how you feel you believe.”
Administrators initially responded to the parents’ complaint by relocating the child to another class, however, “On Wednesday, Vaillencourt said the superintendent’s office contacted her to tell her what the teacher did was against school policy,” reports KGUN9.
A statement from a Mesa Public Schools spokesperson said the teacher was “provided feedback and guidance,” and that the document was restored “to its original format.”
If you still don't believe that the president of Syria needs to be removed from office ASAP, perhaps you should watch this video of his military launching a deadly attack on a hospital that is known to be packed with people due to the ongoing conflict in the region.
Listen as the officers openly discuss which section of the hospital to attack, they pick the maternity ward that one officer admits is probably filled with women and children.
Chapman told Zero Hedge that the moment the protest began, he was assaulted by the crowd. “Erdogan’s supporters jumped on me almost immediately, shoving me out of my chair and eventually throwing me to the floor,” he said. “They kicked and punched me repeatedly until the security guards lifted me and dragged me out.As I was being dragged out, Turks leaned into the aisle and continued punching me in the head and stomach.”
Chapman is uncertain whether or not Erdogan’s body guards were directly involved as he says his face was quickly pressed to the floor and was thus unable to see while being beaten in the initial moments of the event. There were seven protesters total in the group and they escaped with only minor injuries.
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was accused of hypocrisy Wednesday by WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner for reliably railing against the one percent despite being worth millions of dollars.
Warren, who was at the WRKO studio in Boston for an interview, met Kuhner in the hallway and the situation escalated as Kuhner asked why Warren has built her career haranguing the one percent when she herself is a member of that class.
Warren defended herself, citing humble beginnings as the daughter of a janitor who was able to advance to her current position due purely to the “equality of opportunity” provided by government programs.
After months of stonewalling, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg agreed to turn over more than 3,000 Russian-linked political ads that ran during last year’s election campaign to Congress.
In his remarks, made in a Facebook Live post from his personal account, Zuckerberg said the company “recently uncovered this activity” and began cooperating with investigators looking at Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.
“We are actively working with the US government on its ongoing investigations into Russian interference,” Zuckerberg said. “We have been investigating this for many months, and for a while we had found no evidence of fake accounts linked to Russia running ads. When we recently uncovered this activity, we provided that information to the special counsel. We also briefed Congress, and this morning I directed our team to provide the ads we've found to Congress as well.”
ABC News has learned that Zuckerberg called Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va, vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, personally on Thursday to tell him of the company’s decision to offer more information to Congress.
A small group of protesters gathered in Forest Park before they walked over to the Cheshire Inn Thursday, police said.
People began to gather in the park around 3:00 p.m. Protesters briefly blocked the intersection of Clayton and Skinker.
They also walked over to the Cheshire Inn and went inside. Police said a water bottle with an unknown substance was thrown.
Authorities said the group cleared the area after two orders to disperse were given.
A University of Wisconsin-Madison student released a controversial video portraying police officers being beheaded after they put an American flag noose around the neck of an African American man Friday.

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium.
Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game.
It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging from the photos.

Whatever your plans are for tomorrow, you can be safe in the knowledge that Armageddon isn't going to disrupt them. Several internet conspiracy theorists have been circulating a prophecy about a rogue planet called Nibiru crashing into Earth and wiping out all life. The date of our supposed destruction is September 23. This theory of a wayward planet - also known as "Planet X" - has been picked up by so-called Christian numerologist David Meade who believes it's heading our way. The conspirator posted a video to YouTube in which he says: "It is very strange indeed that both the Great Sign of Revelation 12 and the Great Pyramid of Giza both point us to one precise moment in time – September 20 to 23, 2017. Now the chatter has got so noisy that even NASA has put out a statement to confirm the theory isn't true. "Various people are 'predicting' that world will end on September 23 when another planet collides with Earth. The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn't exist, so there will be no collision," the space agency said. "Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. "There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. "Obviously, it does not exist." As well as noting apparent mystic markings on the pyramids in Egypt, Meade's prediction is largely based on the Bible passage Isaiah, Chapter 13 9-10, which says: "See, the Day of the Lord is coming – a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger – to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. "The Stars of Heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the Moon will not give its light." Supposedly, a celestial alignment takes place on the 23rd that mirrors one fortold in the Book of Revelation. But experts have proven that there is nothing special about the line-up of the moon, the planets or the sun on that date. It is, after all, complete fiction.
WARNING - DISTRESSING IMAGES: The unnamed tot was born with bulging red eyes and holes in place of his nose as his mum admitted "I have never seen a child like this before" A father has promised not to "abandon" his severely deformed baby boy whose birth has sparked a flock of villagers to the family home.

More than 400 people have been forced to flee their homes after a major forest fire broke out on the holiday island of Gran Canaria. The fast-moving blaze has already affected 1,000 hectares on the island's summit and has the potential to affect "several thousand more hectares." The fire, which broke out this afternoon, has been described as "very aggressive" and families were told to leave their properties after the 25ft flames came close to their homes and near main roads. At one stage, the fire surrounded the Tejeda Parador hotel which was evacuated in time and many roads on the island have been closed.

VIDEOS have emerged showing a surging torrent of water in Puerto Rico as torrential rain and powerful winds brought on by Hurricane Maria increase the threat of widespread flooding.
Local media is reporting that the Fajardo, Espíritu Santo and Rio Grande de Loiza rivers have all broken their banks, increasing the risk of flooding to some of the more highly populated areas of Puerto Rico.
A tsunami warning is in place along the coast of Ponce, a city on the southern coast.
Flash flood warnings are in place for Comerio, Naranjito, Dorado, Toa Baja and Toa Alta as the island is smashed by Hurricane Maria.
Some local journalists are reporting that Río Grande de Loíza, Puerto Rico's largest river by volume, is already threatening some populated areas on the island.
At around 6pm BST officials announced the entire island, home to more than 3.5 million people, had lost power.
Thousands of people are still seeking shelter.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper suggested on Wednesday that "it's possible" that President Trump's voice was picked up in a wiretap as he spoke with his former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
"It's certainly conceivable," Clapper said on CNN.
When asked by host Don Lemon if it was likely, Clapper said he couldn't say, but again asserted that there is a chance.
"I wouldn't want to go there, but I will say it's possible," Clapper said.
These days, confrontations between President Donald Trump’s supporters and left-leaning activists are expected to be filled with anger, insults and, at worst, violence.
But a different scene played out during the right-wing “Mother of All Rallies” at the U.S. Capitol on Saturday when Trump supporters invited Black Lives Matter counter-protesters to speak on stage.
Clips from the rare moment went viral Monday on Facebook, and while people found it refreshing that the opposing groups could come together, the Now This video didn’t show the entire interaction.
Henry Davis, a black Trump supporter and performer at the rally, was the first person to invite the BLM activists to join him, but he quickly changed his mind.
“I want Black Lives Matter to see a black patriot,” Davis said as the group walked to the front of the crowd. However, once the Black Lives Matter group stood on stage, Davis kicked them back off after warning them to be quiet.
“Don’t nobody want to hear you speak,” Davis told the BLM group while instructing them to stand behind a line. A few awkward moments passed as Davis clashed with the protesters before rally organizer Tommy E. Hodges took over the microphone.
“So you guys know that the ‘Mother of All Rallies’ was to end the political violence,” he told the BLM group. “It’s about freedom of speech. It’s about celebration.
“So what we’re going to do is something you’re not used to, and we’re going to give you two minutes of our platform to put your message out. Whether they disagree or agree with your message is irrelevant. It’s the fact that you have the right to have the message.
“It’s your right to say what you believe,” Hodges told the group. “And it’s their right [referring to the pro-Trump crowd] to let you know what they think about what you’re saying.”
Then he handed the microphone to Hawk Newsome, president of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York.
“I am an American,” Newsome told the crowd, eliciting cheers and applause. “And the beauty of America is that when you see something broke in your country, you can mobilize to fix it.
“So you ask why there’s a Black Lives Matter,” Newsome continued. “Because you can watch a black man die and be choked to death on television and nothing happens. We need to address that.”
To be sure, the crowd wasn’t willing to accept all of Newsome’s speech. At times they booed him and yelled out “Bullshit” and “All lives matter!”
But there were moments when the crowd accepted the black rights activist’s message. When Newsome said he was a Christian and was taught to “Love thy neighbor,” the crowd cheered. And the crowd responded with a mix of cheers and groans when Newsome proclaimed he was not “anti-cop.”
“We are anti-bad cop,” he said. “We say if a cop is bad, he needs to get fired like a bad plumber, a bad lawyer, like a bad fucking politician!”
When Newsome said “All lives matter, right? But when a black life is lost, we get no justice,” some people called him a liar.
Newsome’s speech did end with a message of unity: “If we really want America great, we do it together.”
“I know it sounds like hijacking the moment on my Jon Snow s**t,” Williams said, referring to the pro-revolutionary character from HBO’s Game of Thrones. “They keep talking about a wall. But the enemy is this divisive mentality. It’s on this side of the wall… The white nationalists are walking towards your future. What you gonna do?”
Community members are reacting to video from a local middle school showing a teacher caught in the middle of a fight.
School officials are remaining tight-lipped about the incident, but people in the community are not.
Channel 2 Action News spoke with several people who were in disbelief when they saw YouTube video of an incident inside a classroom at Rome Middle School in Floyd County.
“That’s a very unfortunate situation, unfortunate for that teacher to get caught up in that,” said resident Rosemary Ringer.
Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.
We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.
The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show.
After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses, and during what one can presume was the clip going on air, a sudden flush of anger creeps onto his face.
“What’s going on, why am I losing this, why don’t I have sound,” he starts, voice rising. “Who’s asking for a Labor Day rundown in my ear?”
“God dammit,” he mutters, shaking his head, before bursting into a brief spasm of fury and slamming his fists on the desk.
In the next clip, O’Donnell finishes up a segment, and declares: “There’s insanity in the control room tonight.” He then begins to visibly shake with anger, but manages to hold his tongue, and continues reading from the prompter.
“You have insanity in my earpiece,” O’Donnell then seethes through tightly drawn lips. “Fuckin.”
The pattern continues in subsequent clips, with O’Donnell continuing to complain angrily about someone talking into his earpiece.
“STOP THE HAMMERING!” O’Donnell cries suddenly, in response to a knocking sound running faintly in the background.
He then stands up and launches into a shouted tirade past the camera.
“STOP THE HAMMERING UP THERE. WHO’S GOT A HAMMER? WHERE IS IT? WHERE’S THE HAMMER? GO UP ON THE OTHER FLOOR. SOMEBODY GO UP THERE AND STOP THE HAMMERING. STOP THE HAMMERING. I’LL GO DOWN TO THE GODDAMNED FLOOR MYSELF AND STOP IT, KEEP THE GODDAMNED COMMERCIAL BREAK GOING. CALL FUCKING PHIL GRIFFIN, I DON’T CARE WHO THE FUCK YOU HAVE TO CALL. STOP THE HAMMERING. EMPTY OUT THE GODDAMNED CONTROL ROOM AND FIND OUT WHERE THIS IS GOING ON.”
Phil Griffin is the president of MSNBC.
“Fucking out of control shit,” O’Donnell adds.
In video that appears like a scene from Transformers, a bulldozer backs over a police squad car on a Kankakee street-and then leads a cordon of cops on a low-speed chase.
The never-before-seen police dash cam videos, from various angles and numerous patrol cars, was obtained Monday by the ABC7 I-Team after a Freedom of Information Act filing.
Police say 18-year old Austin White of Bourbonnais had stolen the bulldozer from a Bradley construction site at 3 a.m. on August 24 and began driving it around streets in nearby Kankakee. Clearly seen on one video the bulldozer backs over a squad car when an officer tries to stop him. That officer can be seen running from the squad just as the car is being crushed by the bulldozer, that weighed about 20 tons.
An off-duty officer first reported seeing the bulldozer spinning around a Kankakee intersection and numerous on-duty units then responded.
After backing onto the squad car, other police vehicles followed the dozer along 12 city blocks. Video obtained by the I-Team shows officers on foot running next to the bulldozer and at times jumping onto the back in an effort to curb the heavy construction equipment.
The show has taken a strong stand against President Trump in its recent seasons.
Former ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member Bobby Moynihan seemed to criticize the show’s political bent in an appearance on ‘CBS This Morning’ on Wednesday.
“You said last season was the hardest for you,” CBS’s Gayle King said to Moynihan.
“Yeah, it was very politics-heavy, very Trump-heavy, and that’s not necessarily my favorite,” Moynihan responded. “For me, SNL was very talented comedians playing characters and entertaining people, so I missed that part of it.”
Moynihan left SNL at the end of last season to star in a new sitcom on CBS. He had been on the show for nine seasons.
At times, the weekly NBC comedy show has seemed to position itself as a spoiler for President Trump, with the show focusing on the U.S. leader in recent seasons.
The parents of a 5-year-old California boy were not pleased that their son’s school suspended him for a day after he refused to take off his backpack and claimed a bomb was inside it; they said, “He’s 5. He has an imagination.”
A kindergarten teacher at Great Valley Charter School reportedly asked the boy, Jackson Riley, to remove his back pack from his person last month. However, Riley allegedly denied the order, saying a bomb inside the bag would explode if he took it off.
“So, they look in his backpack, and my son’s 5 years old; obviously there’s no bomb in my kid’s backpack,” Riley’s father said. “They called me at work and said, ‘There’s been an incident at the school.’ They told me everything that my son said, and they said, ‘You need to come pick your son up, and this is going to be a one-day suspension.'”
The school also sent a letter to Riley’s parents explaining he had been suspended because he “intentionally engaged in harassment, threats or intimidation.” However, the letter indicated the code the boy had violated only applied to fourth through 12th graders. So the school sent a new letter to reflect a different code, which accused Riley of making “terroristic threats towards school officials.”
Uploaded September 20, 2017 Puerto Rican authorities have warned residents to “evacuate or die”, with just hours to go before Hurricane Maria tears through the island with winds up to 175mph. Maria, the most powerful storm to hit the region in nearly a century, has already barreled through island nations across the Caribbean, leaving widespread devastation in its wake. The Category 5 storm killed one person and injured two others as it tore through Guadeloupe on Monday evening.
