Police appear to high five each other after shooting unarmed black teen dead
18-year-old Paul O’Neal was shot dead in the back by policemen after allegedly crashing a stolen Jaguar into two Chicago officers.

Peta wants Tasmania’s Eggs and Bacon bay changed to Apple and Cherry bay
The proposal has not been well received by locals, who say that while they are proud of the Huon Valley’s fruit orchards they’re not about to go renaming things.
“I think the world has gone mad, I just can’t barely believe it,” Huon Valley deputy mayor Ian Paul told Guardian Australia.
Intellectual orthodoxy is a bigger threat than climate change
These new authoritarians usually declare a commitment to science. They merely wish to silence those who go against it. But this desire reveals a profound confusion about science – or, at least, about the element of science that should be protected. They seek to protect the particular theories that are currently orthodox by undermining the free competition between ideas that explains the extraordinary success of science over the last 500 years.
What is going on? Why are universities becoming bastions of intellectual protectionism?
Hillary Ignores First Olympic Medal Winner In Rifle – Heaps Praise On Losing Muslim American In Hijab
When Ibtihaj Muhammad became the first U.S. Olympic athlete to compete wearing her Muslim hijab, the liberals were falling over each other to praise this brave, brave woman.
I suppose this is a neat thing. And yes, maybe it shows the world that we don’t care what your religion is, or your silly fashion statements. And American is an American and all that, right?
It doesn’t help that she bashed the U.S. because she said it’s a place full of bigots. She doesn’t feel safe in the U.S. because she’s Muslim, she said.
Will Smith Wants to ‘Cleanse’ America of Trump Supporters
“The Middle East can’t allow Fox News to be the arbiter of the imagery, you know,” the 47-year-old celeb said. “So cinema is a huge way to be able to deliver the truth of the soul of a place to a global audience.”
The “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star added he believes it’s important the upcoming election.
“As painful as it is to hear Donald Trump talk and as embarrassing as it is as an American to hear him talk, I think it’s good,” he said. “We get to know who people are and now we get to cleanse it out of our country.”

Putin Calls Out Rigged U.S. Democracy: ‘You Actually Believe US Elections are Democratic?’
Washington, D.C. – In the wake of WikiLeaks’ release of emails revealing collusion by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign to defeat the insurgent candidacy of Bernie Sanders, the Clinton camp diligently spun a now leading narrative. This narrative – regurgitated by the mainstream U.S. media – is that Russia’s Vladimir Putin is actively working to subvert the U.S. presidential election.
Make no mistake that the Clinton campaign is intentionally attempting to draw the public’s attention away from the Clinton/DNC’s concerted effort to usurp the will of American voters and rigging the Democratic nomination in favor of Clinton.
Black Lives Matter Blames Cop For Not Willingly Being Stabbed To Death
There was nothing more the officers could have done in this situation.
Tasers are not appropriate for an attack with a weapon, such as the knife the murderous Porter had in his hand. The only rational response in such a situation is to fire until the threat ends, which is precisely what this officer did.
The Greater Cincinnati Coalition for the Homeless and Black Lives Matter reveal a near psychosis developing in some quarters that officers are never justified in defending themselves if the offender is a minority.
That is an indefensible, extremist position, and one that cannot be tolerated in a civil society.
Millennial poll: 2nd Amendment no obstacle to gun control
A new poll by the University of Chicago finds that Millennials have a strong preference for gun control, even supporting a proposed ban on semi-automatic weapons.
The survey—which was conducted by GenForward, part of the University of Chicago’s Black Youth Project, in conjunction with the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, a nonpartisan social science research organization—polled 1,940 young Americans ages 18 to 30 and revealed that that 57 percent of Millennials approve of banning people from purchasing semi-automatic weapons.
Muslims Demand Polygamy In Response To Same Sex Unions
Responding to a new law allowing same sex couples to enter civil unions, Hamza Piccardo argued that if gay relationships, which Muslims disagree with, are a civil right then Italians must accept polygamy as a civil right too.
The founder of the Union of Islamic Communities and Organisations (UCOII) in Italy took to Facebook to claim polygamy is a “civil right” and that Italy would benefit from the large number of Muslim births it would promote.
The UCOII president wrote: “When it comes to civil rights here, then polygamy is a civil right. Muslims do not agree with homosexual partnerships, and yet they have to accept a system that allows it. There is no reason why Italy should not accept polygamous marriages of consenting persons.”
Rainbow crosswalk in jeopardy for Calgary Pride 2016
It made a colourful splash to mark the Calgary Pride Parade’s 25th anniversary in 2015.
But a year after Calgary Pride, along with financial support from private donors, transformed the crosswalk on Macleod Tr. in front of city hall into a rainbow crossing, questions are lingering about whether the multi-hued tribute will be back for a return engagement.
Chilling Map Shows the 22 Confirmed Jihadi Training Camps in America
Despite there being 22 confirmed jihadi training camps on US soil, the FBI refuses to take action. Disturbingly, these terror camps consist of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, (Pakistan Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda related branch) Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and Hezbolloh members. And to top it off, the FBI knows these camps exist, but claim that their hands are tied. So why is FBI allowing these groups to operate on American soil? The easy answer to that question is Barack Hussein Obama and his crooked henchmen.
