Terrorists who plotted to cause two trains to crash and drive a truck packed with explosives into Russia's Navy Day celebrations have been detained, it has been claimed. Russian secret agents say they have thwarted an alleged jihadist cell which also aimed to disrupt the Confederations Cup football tournament in June, a precursor to next year's World Cup. Sources at the Federal Security Service say extremists tried to engineer the crash of two bullet trains with a combined speed of 186mph. When that plan failed, an attack was allegedly pencilled in for July 30 in St Petersburg when President Vladimir Putin was leading the annual Russian Navy Day celebrations.
A boat load of illegal African immigrants were filmed arriving at a beach in Spain and making a dash for dry land. Stunned holidaymakers watched on as at least 30 men sprinted across Germans Beach, near Tarifa, after crossing the Straits of Gibraltar from Morocco in a tiny boat. Footage, filmed by a beach-goer, shows the immigrants leaping from a black dingy at around 2pm yesterday and legging it across the sand. Confused tourists are seen standing in bemusement as the men, thought to be from sub-Saharan Africa, dodge their way through crowds of sun seekers enjoying one of the hottest days of the year. Most of the men then disappear as they reach dry land, while a number stay behind to drag the boat onto the shore.
A Michigan mother held back tears Monday as she was sentenced to prison for luring two teenage boys by using Snapchat and then having sex with them, incidents she called the "biggest regret" of her life. Lajiness lured the teenage boys, who were 14 and 15 at the time, by sending them naked pictures of herself on Snapchat and then having late-night sexual encounters near their parents' homes while sitting in her car, investigators said. The teens saw photos, including Lajiness in a bathtub performing sexual acts, and then met up with Lajiness for sex.

The US believes several State Department employees at the US embassy in Havana were subjected to an "acoustic attack" using sonic devices that left at least two with such serious health problems they needed to be brought back to the US for treatment, several senior State Department officials told CNN.
A sophisticated device that operated outside the range of audible sound was deployed either inside or outside the residences of US diplomats living in Havana, according to three US officials.
A US government official told CNN that the who, where and when point to "an attack" -- the US is investigating whether a third country was involved as "payback" for actions the US has taken elsewhere and to "drive a wedge between the US and Cuba."
One official said the employees could have suffered permanent hearing loss as a result.
The employees affected were not at the same place at the same time, but suffered a variety of physical symptoms since late 2016 which resembled concussions.
The State Department raised the incidents with the Cuban government over the course of several months and sent medical personnel to Havana, but have not been able to determine exactly what happened.
"It can be quite serious," one official told CNN. "We have worked with the Cubans to try and find out what is going on. They insist they don't know, but it has been very worrying and troublesome."
"It's very strange," one official said.
The FBI is now investigating with Cuba's cooperation and they will allow FBI agents onto the island according to a US government official.
Sometimes things just get crazy at Britney Spears' shows in Las Vegas.
For example, a fan rushed the stage during Wednesday night's performance and was tackled by security.
No one is quite sure what the fan's intentions were when they ran on stage, but security guards weren't going to wait and see. Several guards sprung into action and jumped on the fan before they were able to get to Britney.
According to TMZ, Britney's knee could be seen buckling during the incident and she asked a security guard if the fan had a gun.
Spears was rushed backstage, but later came out to finish the show.
Spears performs at Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip.
U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology members today responded to reports about the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) 2015 climate change study (“the Karl study”). According to Dr. John Bates, the recently retired principal scientist at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, the Karl study was used “to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.”
Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas): “I thank Dr. John Bates for courageously stepping forward to tell the truth about NOAA’s senior officials playing fast and loose with the data in order to meet a politically predetermined conclusion. In the summer of 2015, whistleblowers alerted the Committee that the Karl study was rushed to publication before underlying data issues were resolved to help influence public debate about the so-called Clean Power Plan and upcoming Paris climate conference. Since then, the Committee has attempted to obtain information that would shed further light on these allegations, but was obstructed at every turn by the previous administration’s officials. I repeatedly asked, ‘What does NOAA have to hide?’
“Now that Dr. Bates has confirmed that there were heated disagreements within NOAA about the quality and transparency of the data before publication, we know why NOAA fought transparency and oversight at every turn. Dr. Bates’ revelations and NOAA’s obstruction certainly lend credence to what I’ve expected all along – that the Karl study used flawed data, was rushed to publication in an effort to support the president’s climate change agenda, and ignored NOAA’s own standards for scientific study. The Committee thanks Dr. Bates, a Department of Commerce Gold Medal winner for creating and implementing a standard to produce and preserve climate data, for exposing the previous administration’s efforts to push their costly climate agenda at the expense of scientific integrity.”
Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Darin LaHood (R-Ill.): “I applaud Dr. Bates’s efforts in uncovering the truth of this data manipulation, and I commend Chairman Smith and the Science Committee for conducting rigorous oversight on behalf of the American people. Transparent and faithful execution of the scientific process, especially where taxpayer dollars are involved, is crucial to ensure that our policies are based on sound science and not on politically predetermined outcomes.”
Environment Subcommittee Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.): “I commend Dr. Bates for bringing to light the corrupt practices used by his former colleagues and hope this serves as a deterrence to anyone thinking of manipulating science to serve their own political agenda. I applaud Chairman Smith and the Science Committee's efforts to provide the necessary oversight to ensure the American people have the best information possible.”
Government authorities arrested six individuals in Iran for allegedly teaching “Western dance moves,” including Zumba, and creating videos which they uploaded and posted on social media.
The six, four men and two women, were reportedly detained by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard officers in the town of Sharhoud in the northeastern Semnan province late Tuesday, according to Iranian media.
“A team teaching Western dance moves to boys and girls and uploading clips to social media applications such as Telegram and Instagram have been arrested,” Hamid Damghani, a local Guards commander said, adding that the group also “sought to promote an alternative lifestyle including not wearing the Hijab,” a compulsory Muslim head covering for women in Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
It was a girls’ day out for Hillary Clinton as she and two friends shopped along New York’s Madison Avenue on Saturday.
The former first lady was dressed in a navy blue ensemble, along with black flats, as she laughed and walked on the city streets with her gal pals.
Flanked by three walking Secret Service agents and two Secret Service vehicles behind, Hillary was greeted by members of the public who seemingly showed support, taking selfies and giving hugs.
The former Secretary of State stopped into Kate Spade, Asprey and a stationary store before getting into her car and driving off.
The Clintons all went their separate ways for the weekend. While Hillary was on her trip to New York City, Chelsea promoted her book in the Hamptons, and Bill visited Colorado.
On Friday, Hillary was spotted heading into the Bergdorf Goodman before arriving at the Chatwal Hotel in New York.
She stepped out in a cobalt blue pant suit and was all smiles as she entered the hotel flanked by three secret service vehicles.
Imagine walking along a trail and stumbling upon this, then trying to figure out what to do: Hikers filming in Sequoia National Park suddenly spot a mountain lion and decide to slowly back away. Scary stuff! Fortunately for the hikers it ended well: Smart or lucky, they guessed right. Never run from or turn your back on a big cat. -- Beautiful mountain lion, but scary situation! This is why my ass stays indoors. If no one inserts a Linda Blair Exorcist face near the end, I will be very disappointed in the internet.
The flight was permitted under the Open Skies Treaty. Russia and USA are signatories to the treaty, which allows unarmed observation flights over the entire territory of all 34 member nations.
Radio host and author Mark Steyn: Press sounds 'insane' for seemingly being more concerned about Trump's choice of words than the very real danger posed by a nuke power like North Korea. Brian Kilmeade.
Critics have long blamed the George W. Bush administration for Pyongyang's nuclear breakout. Then-Secretary of State Colin Powell told lawmakers in 2003 that North Korea's violations -- clandestine uranium enrichment -- of a Clinton-era nuclear freeze deal began “before the ink was dry.”
On Wednesday, the network morning shows portrayed President Trump’s stern warning to North Korea as being more “dangerous” than the rogue authoritarian regime threatening the world with nuclear weapons. Going into full panic mode, hosts and correspondents warned viewers that Trump was “going to make a bad situation worse” with his “blistering rhetoric.” At the top of NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer proclaimed: “War of words. North Korea threatens to attack the U.S. territory of Guam after President Trump warns the regime with his harshest language yet… What will bring the two sides back from the brink?” Moments later, fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie hyped the “rapidly developing North Korea crisis” with “ominous threats being exchanged by the U.S. and the North Korean regime.”
After noting how North Korea was threatening to attack the U.S. territory of Guam, Lauer suggested Trump was to blame by provoking the hostile nation: “So what was the timing of this? Well, it followed a harsh warning hours earlier from President Trump that any further threats from Kim Jong Un would be met with, quote, ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen.’” In the report that followed, correspondent Andrea Mitchell asserted: “The North Korean threat, frighteningly routine for the rogue regime, was a chilling response to thunderous words from President Trump.” Later in the segment, she touted: “Meanwhile, the President’s strong language is being criticized by leading lawmakers of both parties. Democrat Dianne Feinstein calling his rhetoric “bombastic” and saying diplomacy is the only path. Republican John McCain cautioning Trump against making empty threats.” Mitchell concluded that “the real fear is that the rhetoric is escalating from both sides.”
In a discussion with military analyst Jack Jacobs and MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace, Guthrie fretted: “Let’s talk about the rhetoric… Is this the President giving Kim Jong Un a taste of his own medicine, maybe his own vocabulary? Or is it going to make a bad situation worse?” Jacobs downplayed the importance: “Well, I think it’s irrelevant, actually.” However, he quipped: “When I first heard the remarks…I thought that Kim Jong Un had said those remarks.” Guthrie pressed: “But is it dangerous? I mean, do the words matter in this context?” As Jacobs continued to reject the fearmongering language being pushed by the anchor, Lauer jumped in: “Let’s not dismiss the words so quickly. We all remember “shock and awe” in Iraq. “Fire and fury,” as a military guy, Jack, what do you read into “fire and fury”? Is this conventional weaponry? Or is he threatening something else?”
Meanwhile, Wallace was freaking out. “He has now drawn a far more stark, a far more inflammatory, a far more dangerous red line,” she declared of the President’s comments. “And he’s the kind of guy who would be sort of shamed into sort of keeping up with his own word,” Wallace added. She then incorrectly claimed: “So the language is so stunning because it contradicts all of the traditions of American military history.” In reality, in the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis, President John F. Kennedy issued the following warning during an address to the nation on October 22, 1962: “It shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from Cuba against any nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack by the Soviet Union on the United States, requiring a full retaliatory response upon the Soviet Union.”
The biased reporting across all three networks was brought to viewers by PetSmart, Walmart, and Popeye's.
In an extraordinary moment on Tuesday, President Trump issued a daring warning to the radical North Korean regime. “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” Trump told the cameras with his arms crossed. And as would be expected, Trump’s statement dominated the day. And during the evening broadcasts of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC), they were all visibly distressed and criticized the comment. “It is the most fiery, overtly military threat President Trump has ever launched at North Korea, a chilling warning in response Kim Jong-un's threats to the U.S.,” exclaimed ABC Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz near the top of World News Tonight. “This dramatic escalation of rhetoric, all the more alarming given the latest extraordinary intelligence assessments of North Korea's nuclear capabilities,” she added before finally delving into the new threat from North Korea.
On NBC Nightly News, Anchor Lester Holt cranked the fearmongering up as he started the program by saying: “The crisis with North Korea reached an unsettling new level today with news of a possible major breakthrough in Kim Jong-un's nuclear weapons capability, and the most provocative statement yet from President Trump, who met North Korea's recent verbal threats with this chilling threat of his own…” -- He also described the scene as “the President painting a dark and ominous image.” Meanwhile, the full report on the matter was delivered by the network’s Andrea Mitchell. And while she kept the report itself focused on North Korea, she wrapped it up with the criticism Trump had received. “Democrat Dianne Feinstein calling them bombastic and recommending diplomacy,” she noted. “Republican John McCain saying he can't think of any other president who would have used that kind of rhetoric.”
But that’s not true. Because according to CBS Evening News, an eerily similar statement was uttered once before by a president. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett started off his report by providing some historical context by noting how “President Trump's rhetoric sounded very much like a speech Harry Truman gave after the first U.S. atomic bomb strike at Hiroshima.” Garrett then played this clip of President Truman addressing the nation: “If they do not now accept our terms, they may expect a rain of ruin from the air the like of which has never been seen on this Earth. Behind this air attack will follow sea and land forces in such numbers and power as they have not yet seen.” The CBS reporter also mentioned how Congressman Darrell Issa commented that the situation was the “greatest crisis … undoubtedly since the Cuban Missile Crisis.”
But despite the effort to provide the historical context, CBS highlighted a poll they released on Tuesday claiming people didn’t trust Trump to handle North Korea. “Only 35 percent of Americans told us they are confident about that. 61 percent said they are uneasy,” asserted Anchor Anthony Mason. ABC’s Martha Raddatz also hyped the CBS poll. But the way they’re sowing fear during this crucial and uncertain time does not help the people feel confident in the situation. Because you know you have a hyperbole problem when CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin is telling you to calm down.
While on a visit to the DMZ in 1994, President Bill Clinton told North Korea that it would be “pointless” to develop nuclear weapons because if they ever used nukes, “it would be the end of their country.” Maybe this isn’t a fiery as President Trump’s fire and fury line, but it’s still a threat of total annihilation of the North Korean regime: 1994:Clinton says "if NK ever used nuclear weapons it would be the end of their country." POTUS essentially says the same & MSM freaks out!
On Wednesday's New One Now, far-left host Roland Martin bordered on caricature when he teased the show by asking if President Donald Trump is "putting thousands of African-American troops but more importantly their families at risk" by talking tough on North Korea, as if the lives of white troops were not worthy of note if war broke out. And, as a segment was devoted to griping over alleged "voter suppression" efforts by the Justice Department, one guest provocatively demanded that Republicans "come get your racist cousins" in the DOJ as he asserted that "This is racism, white nationalism, and part of Jeff Sessions's strategy to turn back -- roll back the 20th century."
Shortly after 7:00 a.m. ET, after beginning the tease by recalling current flooding in New Orleans, Martin turned to "voter suppression" as he continued: “In another move by the Trump administration to reverse Obama-era policies and to trample on voting rights, the Department of Justice now supports a plan in Ohio to purge eligible voters from the rolls -- another mass voter suppression campaign by Donald Trump.” -- The left-wing host then oddly suggested that the show would discuss how African-Americans specifically would be impacted by potential war in North Korea as he added: “Lots of scary talk about North Korea nuclear weapons, most of it coming from President Trump. Is that putting thousands of African-American troops but more importantly their families at risk? We will talk with retired Army General William "Kip" Ward in a simulcast with the Tom Joyner morning show.”
Martin never got around to explaining why he was concerned specifically about how African-American troops but not white troops would be impacted by war as the racial element was dropped when retired General William Ward as a guest discussed the North Korea situation. Earlier in the show, Martin did devote a segment to one of his favorite topics -- Republicans allegedly trying to engage in "voter suppression" to hurt black voter participation. The most incendiary portion came when guest and Professor Greg Carr of Howard University accused Attorney General Jeff Sessions of racism. After Martin commented that "The political folks are the ones driving this in DOJ," Carr responded:
“Absolutely. GOP, message to you: Come get your racist cousins. This is racism, white nationalism, and part of Jeff Sessions's strategy to turn back -- roll back the 20th century. The parallel is in the period after Reconstruction when the states began in their state constitutions to roll this back.” -- “That's why you have to have a federal government. There's a reason why no career lawyers signed onto this brief. They have moved this to the political apparatus. And you got an attorney general -- I'm sorry, secretary of state -- in Ohio who's running for governor, and all of these cats are trying to get it close enough to steal. If they can get it close enough to steal, they will steal it. They will steal it.”
Sinead O'Connor took to social media Monday and appeared to be alone, distraught and having what may have been a mental breakdown. "I'm all by myself. I've absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor," she said in the video posted from a New Jersey motel room. "My entire life is revolving around just not dying and that's not living!" She claims she has been abandoned by her family and friends. "I love the people that are doing this to me. I am not staying alive for me," she said in the video.
White House Adviser Sebastian Gorka defended the Trump administration’s use of the phrase, “radical Islamic terrorism,” in an appearance on MSNBC on Tuesday, tearing apart hosts Ali Velshi’s and Stephanie Ruhle’s criticism of the phrase.
“We will call it ‘radical Islamic terrorism,'” Gorka said. “We will target the ideology, and we will call them out for being evil.”
Velshi asked how it would help stop terror attacks if the White House called the problem “radical Islamic terrorism.”
“If you, God forbid, caught cancer, and the hospital was forbidden from calling it cancer and said, ‘You have the flu. Go home and hydrate and take some aspirins, would you actually have the right treatment?'” Gorka argued.
“No, but there’s still no cure for cancer,” Ruhle responded, smugly.
“Have you not heard of chemo?” Gorka asked, noting that would be the correct treatment for a cancer patient.
“I have heard of chemo, and cancer can still kill you. So it doesn’t matter what you call it,” Ruhle said, apparently thinking that doctors would prescribe chemotherapy for something they falsely diagnosed as a flu.
“It doesn’t matter what you call it, really? So if I call it ‘the flu’ and said, ‘Go home and take some aspirin,’ what’s going to happen to you?” Gorka responded.
Velshi then accused Gorka of not having a good answer.
“If you misdiagnose anything, whether it’s a serious disease or a serious international geopolitical threat, you will never solve it,” Gorka said.
The White House adviser then criticized the Obama administration for ascribing the problem to economic conditions and societal disenfranchisement. “It is about people having an ideology that is evil, and it has to be destroyed,” he said.
Pro-migrant rescue NGO Sea-Watch has complained the Libyan coast guard interfered in their rescue operations whilst the Libyans allege the NGO was operating within its territorial waters.
NGO Sea-Watch, a Berlin-based organisation that picks up migrants in the Mediterranean and ferries them to Europe, has accused the Libyans of acting outside its territorial waters after its ship was accosted by a vessel from the Libyan coast guard on Wednesday.
In a press release, the NGO claimed they were 20 miles off the coast of Libya when a wooden boat packed full of migrants approached their position. Before the group could take the migrants on board, and take them to Europe, the Libyan patrol intervened, almost running into the NGO ship. The Libyans then took the migrants back to North Africa.
Sea-Watch claims the coast guard was operating outside of the sovereign waters of Libya, which extend 12 miles off the coast.
Political commentator Dean Obeidallah said on MSNBC on Monday that “the word ‘Trump’ is becoming a modern day swastika.”
According to Obeidallah, mosques have been vandalized with swastikas and the name of the president.
“We’ve had the word ‘Trump’ written on mosques in New Jersey, Iowa, and New York,” he said. “For some, the word ‘Trump’ is becoming a modern day swastika.”
Obeidallah also seemed to pin violence against mosques on the president. “Since January, we’ve had five mosques burned down in America by arson,” he said.
Nazi Germany used the swastika as its symbol as it instilled terror and murder across Europe.
China has blasted live missile rounds near the Korean Peninsula as tensions between North Korea and the USA reach breaking point . Chinese submarines, battle ships and fighter jets fired a variety of different missiles into the Bohai and Yellow Seas with a number of ground soldiers also taking part. Footage from Monday shows dozens of ships and aircraft simultaneously launching missiles into the sea - with men in military fatigues seen monitoring them from computer screens. The rounds can be seen whizzing across the skies before landing in the distance. The large-scale exercise comes just months after China relocated 150,000 soldiers onto its border with North Korea.
Dhimmis…. Look at them. They are so ignorant and bend their heads along in prayers that call for their own demise in the most brutal manner imaginable.
Why should they have Islamic prayers at all in their sessions? Muslims are highly superstitious. They believe in the power of these prayers and that by adding these toxic rituals to the infidel’s world, to their food (halal slaughters), to their water, to their neighbourhoods, to their government and so on – the energy from the Islamic prayers will help to spread Allah’s magic dust over the infidels and into their DNA. This victory means the infidel will be surrounded and soaked by Allah’s energy through air, water and food and into their entire organism and eventually lead to a total surrender to Islam.
It seems to be working.
Here’s Donald Trump in 1999 on North Korea and how he’d deal with the nuclear threat: In a 1999 interview on Meet The Press, Donald Trump described how he would handle North Korea if he was elected president.
Gangsta with gun: I really want to go to war with Donald Trump because Donald Trump wants to take food stamps from my mama. And that’s all the f*ck she got, b*tch.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is writing a book for teenagers on how to conduct a political revolution. "Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution" will be released August 29 and will include infographics on progressive economic issues. "This book will expose them to an unusual political campaign, the excitement of politics and what being a progressive is all about," Sanders told Teen Vogue. The former Democrat presidential candidate gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money in 2016 although he eventually lost the party's nomination, but not before garnering a huge youth following bigger than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's youth vote combined.
Sanders won over 2 million votes from people under 30, while Trump and Clinton managed less than 1.6 million between them. "The current generation of young people is the smartest, most idealistic, and least prejudiced generation in the modern history of the United States," Sanders wrote in the forward. "This is a generation that is prepared to think big and move this country in a very different direction than we have been traveling for years."
"Jews are the "offspring of apes and pigs".are just some of the choice words and phrases you may here as your attending or simply walking by this anti-Israel, anti-Somatic, anti-Jew protest being held in Sweden.
The man was "seriously wounded" near the northern port town of Boulogne-sur-Mer and was allegedly driving the BMW used in the attack in the capital just hours earlier. He was shot five times, while an officer was also hit by a bullet in the thigh before the man was arrested, a source revealed. The attack occurred in Paris' Levallois-Perret area as the car, allegedly "parked up in wait close to a barracks", suddenly accelerated and struck the servicemen "at high speed". The wounded soldiers had been on a routine patrol as part of Operation Sentinelle, which was created after Islamic extremist attacks in 2015.
Twelve migrants including five children were found clinging to the bottom of a 93mph train in a desperate bid to enter Europe. The group were discovered on Wednesday by German police at a station near the Bavarian city of Rosenheim hiding underneath lorries of carriages travelling from Verona to Munich. Police have carried out spot checks in the area and used a heat-detecting camera mounted on a helicopter to identify migrants. The seven adults and five children faced a dangerous journey into Munich with trains travelling at speeds of up to 150km per hour (93mph).
