the prosecutor said.

Sean Urbanski, 22, had already been charged with murder and faced a potential sentence of life in prison in the , a student at Bowie State University who had been commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army.

Collins was visiting friends at the University of Maryland's campus in College Park when he was killed.

Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela D.

Alsobrooks said Tuesday that the grand jury returned an indictment on an additional charge of hate crime resulting in death after digital evidence was found on Urbanski's phone

Alsobrooks said at a news conference. She declined to say what kind of digital evidence was found, saying it would be presented at trial.

It had previously been reported that Maryland authorities and the FBI were evaluating hate crime charges after it was discovered that Urbanski was featuring bigoted posts called "Alt-Reich: Nation."

Two moguls down. And the #MeToo movement is just getting started

Another Hollywood honcho falls 

Two moguls down. And the #MeToo movement is just getting started Sexual harassment accusations have felled another powerful executive in the entertainment world. Thehead of Amazon Studios, Roy Price, stepped down Tuesday, five days after being suspended over allegations of sexual harassment.

Price's alleged sleazy behavior echoes the ugly treatment of women described by the multiple accusers of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein (whose brother, Bob Weinstein, is also now facing harassment accusations).

The allegations have given other women - including stars such asReese WitherspoonMolly Ringwald and America Ferrera - the courage to share their own stories of harassment and sexual assault.

Many of them are speaking on social media using the hashtag, #MeToo. Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson believes the Weinstein allegations were a "watershed moment," a tipping point that will drive people from all industries to say, "enough."

"You could ask Gen Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?" Mr Trump said in an interview with Fox News Radio's Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday.

"I don't know what Obama's policy was. I write letters and I also call," he contended, adding that he has called "virtually everybody" during his time in office.

Putin's 'chef,' the man behind the troll factory

Yevgeny Prigozhin is a Russian oligarch dubbed "chef" to President Vladimir Putin's 'chef,' the man behind the troll factoryPutin by the Russian press. In 2002, he served caviar and truffles to President George W. Bush during a summit in St. Petersburg.

Before that, he renovated a boat that became the city's most exclusive restaurant. But his business empire has expanded far beyond the kitchen. US investigators believe it was Prigozhin's company that financed a Russian "troll factory" that used social media

to spread fake news during the 2016 US presidential campaign, according to multiple officials briefed on the investigation.

One part of the factory had a particularly intriguing name and mission: a "Department of Provocations" dedicated to sowing fake news and social divisions in the West, according to internal company documents obtained by CNN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

'Islamic State': Raqqa's loss seals rapid rise and fall

Abu Anis only realised something unusual was happening when he heard the 'Islamic State': Raqqa's loss seals rapid rise and fall
sound of explosions coming from the old city on the western bank of the Tigris as it runs through Mosul. "I phoned some friends over there, and they said armed groups had taken over, some of them foreign, some Iraqis," the computer technician said. "The gunmen told them, 'We've come to get rid of the Iraqi army, and to help you.'" The following day, the attackers crossed the river and took the other half of the city. The Iraqi army and police, who vastly outnumbered their assailants, broke and fled, officers first, many of the soldiers stripping off their uniforms as they joined a flood of panicked civilians.

It was 10 June 2014, and Iraq's second biggest city, with a population of around two million, had just fallen to the militants of the group then calling itself Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham/the Levant (Isis or Isil). Four days earlier, black banners streaming, a few hundred of the Sunni militants had crossed the desert border in a cavalcade from their bases in eastern Syria and met little resistance as they moved towards their biggest prize. Rich dividends were immediate.

Somalis Grasp For Answers After 'Deadliest Single Attack Somalia Has Ever Faced'

The initial numbers were staggering — and they grew ever more devastating as rescue workers sifted through debris: More than 300 people dead.

At least 300 people injured.

A blast area the size of "two or three football fields," as one witness told The Guardian.

The truck bombing in Mogadishu on Saturday — which tore through one of the Somali capital's busiest intersections, at one of its busiest hours — has left the country shaken and a section of the city in ruins. Even in a country that's no stranger to militant attacks, Saturday's violence marked "the deadliest

single attack Somalia has ever faced," according to its Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management.

And even as the country moved to mourn its dead Monday — with more than 100 funerals held already — authorities expect the death toll to rise still further, as The Associated Press reports that scores of people remain missing. Given the intensity of the explosion, it's feared that some of the dead may never be found or identified.

He has supported so-called gay conversion therapy and has been called “one of the most anti-LGBT politicians out there.”hang” all gay people, according to a profile of Pence published in The New Yorker on Monday.

The article, entitled, “The Danger of President Pence,” details various viewpoints held by the socially conservative vice president that clash with Trump’s. Two sources told the magazine Trump has teased Pence about his stances toward religion, abortion and the LGBTQ community.

“A longtime associate” of Trump and Pence was quoted in the article saying that the president likes to let his VP “know who’s boss” and that Trump asks people who stop by Pence’s office, “Did Mike make you pray?”

After a legal adviser told Trump and Pence that many states would probably legalize abortion if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Trump was said to have turned to Pence: ‘You see?’ Trump asked Pence. ‘You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.’ When that meeting shifted to discuss gay rights, according to the article, Trump pointed to Pence and joked, “Don’t ask that guy — he wants to hang them all!” Pence’s views on equal rights have long stirred concern in the LGBTQ community.

As Indiana governor, he signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 2015, which essentially gave businesses the right to refuse to serve gay people. He has supported so-called gay conversion therapy and has been called “one of the most anti-LGBT politicians out there.”

Californians wonder why Trump isn’t tweeting about the fatal wildfires

“Where’s the president?” of the San Fransisco Chronicle, as California burns.

“So how can it be that the loss of 40 human beings on American soil did not merit a single tweet?” Well, it knows where President Trump literally is: the White House usually, if not one of his resorts.

The newspaper board means where is he on Twitter — or as the board says, “How many times has Trump tweeted about the fires since they were whipped by winds into life-threatening force early Monday: zero.”

Zero, true, as of early Sunday evening. As the Chronicle notes, Trump did speak once, offline, about the fires. , he promised to “stand with” Californians and said he’s in touch with the governor — and then welcomed the Pittsburgh Penguins to the White House and turned to other matters.

But the death toll in California has , thousands of homes and millions of acres have been burned — and “one voice has been conspicuously mute,” the Chronicle wrote.

“Americans expect their president to step forward with empathy and resolve in moments of national trauma,” the paper observed. And: “This is not a man who is reticent to let Americans know what is foremost on his mind.”

“So how can it be that the loss of 40 human beings on American soil did not merit a single tweet?”

Issue of race is again a focus in ex-cop's 4th murder trial

RIGGED JUSTICE SYSTEM

One of the many "tentacle" of the Justice System, is the "JURY", Issue of race is again a focus in ex-cop's 4th murder trial and this tentacle of the Justice System, for decades, has been one of the most effective tentacle of the Justice System to "RIGG", specifically, to ensure that American's Racist foundation, is extremely effective in its efforts to either,

imprison Black Americans or Deny Justice for Black Americans.

In fact, there is a Supreme Court decision that specifically speaks to the clear intent of White Lawyers to pad the

Jury with

"Non Black Jurors", which is a decision that is continually ignored, and continually, un-enforced.

This specific case is a prime example of the "RIGGED JURY" used to ensure that a White Former Cop, is protected from

Justice, based on ensuring that the ratio of blacks on a jury, is under represented, especially when a white man has shot a black man.

Jeremy Lin, a Asian American, has chosen to allow his hair to grow into "Dreadlocks", which is a hair style that has been a tradition of the Jamaicans that speaks to their heritage, but not necessarily a good heritage because "Dreadlocks" in Jamaica... has been a label that as a instance of a person with "Dirty Hair".

Nonetheless, Kenyon Martin, who does not have dreadlocks, accused Jeremy Lin of wanting to be "Black" because he has allowed his hair to grow into "Dreadlocks".

A very ignorant comment by Martin, and a statement that speaks to his individual small minded perspective on life, as appose to viewing Jeremy Lin's choice, as a "positive"...

Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Were Close to Being Charged With Felony Fraud

Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Were Close to Being Charged With Felony FraudThe Trumps, a complete family of Crime & Fraud, provides another instance..., of how the rich find a way to avoid being criminally charged for "crimes".

This time, it's not daddy Donald who should have been charged with a crime of "fraud", it's Donald's two oldest children... who were under the gun, and daddy Donald did what he does in order to ensure that his children avoid accountability...,

he got his lawyer to pay someone in the line of influence..., who ensured that people in the seats of authority, find a way to

"not charge" the two Trumps.

Apparently, the DA, with the power to "charge or not charge", all of a sudden, opted "not to charge" after the Trumps put some money in the right person's hand.

This is an example how the Justice System personifies the flaws of human beings, which in this case, the word "bribe-able" would fit the description of those who sit in the seats of power in the Justice System, thus, the Justice System is subject to being bought.

There is no sound greater than


your own thoughts

 

 

Your mind never lets you get away with any flaws in your character

 

It’s your conscious

that rings the loudest

when you’ve found yourself

in a life situation

that cause your own eyes of judgment

to repeat the thoughts of mistakes

you made....
over, and over and over again.

 

It’s the loud sounds

of your own thoughts
that drown out the roar

of the football game

being played on a television,
and it’s the sounds of your own thoughts

that drown out
the sounds of a lawn mower,
a hair dryer,
or a radio station,
a blender,
a movie,
the sounds of a bar,
the sounds of other’s

discussing any subject in life.

 

 

The Affair

 

Your sitting in your car,
parked,
staring out at a lake,
and you can’t hear the music

being played on your radio
because the sound of your own thoughts

are too loud,
repeating questions such as:
Why did I not just go back home

after that last drink?

 

Why didn’t I just say no

to that girl?

 

Why didn’t I just stop flirting

with that guy?

 

How could I have done such a thing

to the person

that I love so much?

 

How can I ever expect

her/him to say I love you

after seeing the look of pain

in her/his eyes

after finding out that

I had an affair,

and I lied about it?

 

It’s the sound

of your thoughts of guilt

that drown out

all other sounds.

 

 

Drug Test

 

Your sitting in a movie theater

in the middle of the afternoon,
but you can’t hear anything

but the sounds of your own thoughts,
questioning:
Why would I be so dumb

to smoke that weed

when I have such a great job

that pays all my bills

and allow me to do anything

I want?

 

Why would I let my friend

convince me to snort that cocaine

when I knew

that my company

drug test randomly?

 

How am I going to tell

my wife that I lost my job

because I was so stupid

to smoke that crack pipe?

 

How can I fix this,
how can I get around this,
and what am I going to do…..?

 

Lord Jesus,
what the hell am I going to do now?

 

The sound of the movie theater

is somewhere in the distance

because your thoughts

are the only thing

you hear.

 

 

The DUI

 

Your sitting in the cell of a jail

after being arrested

for driving while under the influence of alcohol,
and your completely oblivious

to all the noise that’s going on around you

because your thoughts

are the loudest sound you can hear:

 

Why didn’t I just go home

after 10 p.m.

like I was supposed to have?

 

Why didn’t I stay at home

to watch this game?

 

Why did I let them convince me

to keep drinking those shots?

 

How am I going to tell my family,
and how am I going to keep this

from getting to my company,
because this will definitely

possibly get me fired.

 

How am I going to afford

to pay for this?

 

The sounds of the noise of others

in the jail are completely

oblivious to you,

and you don’t even notice

that you’re not the only one lost

in the sounds of

conscious thoughts.

 

 

It’s the sounds of your own thoughts

that punish you
when you have harmed others
or
have been caught doing something illegal,
because...

it’s the sound of your mirror
that you cannot lie to,
or hide from.

Police Slow to Probe N.H. Boy's Hanging, Family Alleges 9/18/2017

 

96% White Community, 14 year old boys "Hang" a 8 year Mix Raced Boy

 

Where did the 14 year old Boys get the "Hanging" concept from?

 

Hundreds of Years worth of American History written...,
and free for all to see, that speaks quite in depth of the uses of "Hangman Nooses", specifically as it associates to the former American Black Slaves, and the post slavery centuries that led to the development, and growth of the KKK,
who used the "Hangman Noose" as their object to
Psychological and Emotionally Terrorize & Intimidate
Black American Citizens, called
LYNCHING.

Trump On GOP Failures: 'I'm Not Going To Blame Myself, I'll Be Honest'

"We're not getting the job done. And I'm not going to blame myself, I'll be honest," Trump said during short remarks in a Cabinet meeting. He then shifted away from "we" to "they." "They're not getting the job done," the president said of Congress.

Colin Kaepernick’s grievance alleging collusion adds more heat to NFL owners meetings

COLLUSION IS A FACT IN THIS CASE

Good explanation for this issue here:

The Entire NFL Ownership, and the NFL Management Office

Colin Kaepernick’s grievance alleging collusion adds more heat to NFL owners meetingshave their pants, laying bunched up around their ankles, and they are leaning over the proverbial "table" minus the Vaseline.

Colin Kaepernick is a QB that has proven his value and there are several existing

NFL QB starters that are not as good as Kaepernick, not to mention the guys that have been brought on a team, after a injury of a currently starting QB, leaving the team

with having to find a quality QB.

There is no argument that could be construed as

"plausible or worth considering" in this instance, by Owners of NFL Teams or the NFL Office.

Colin Kaepernick will get "DOUBLE" his fair market value, plus lawyer fees when the dust settles, and if I were Kaepernick, I'd simply retire from NFL Football... with a nice bank account....

 and refuse to participate in any NFL future activities, based on a

"Flawed Collection of Racist & Demoralizing Group of Imbeciles"

who just happen to be extremely rich, but who are very

STUPID.

Mike Ditka sounds off on anthem protests: ‘Go to another country’

Mike Ditka "IMBICILE" label is proven by his mouth

I have always had a sense of reservations about how I felt about Mike Ditka, the kind of reservations that I would consider of someone whom I believe is a

"racist", but, I never had any evidence for facts to support my thoughts.

Sure, Ditka is an idiot, Sure Ditka is an "under educated"...

common thoughts that I would agree with if someone were to refer to Ditka in those terms, based on having been forced to listen to Ditka simply because he sits on the Sunday morning sports channel...

However, Ditka words regarding the players who are peacefully, and respectfully, protesting the treatment of blacks by this nation's law enforcement industry, proves how truly stupid Ditka is.

Ditka, I would recommend that you educate your mental base with two documentaries... and then we can discuss.

Europe helped draft the Iran nuclear deal. Now E.U. leaders seek to save it from Trump pressure.

World Leadership Conscious of Trump's Idiocy

Every Good and Conscious Laws and Rules enacted by the Obama Europe helped draft the Iran nuclear deal. Now E.U. leaders seek to save it from Trump pressure. Administration are specifically, being removed by Trump, based not on clear and prudent thoughtful decisions, but, based on the sole "Idiocy Foundation" of Trump.

The Danger of electing a completely flawed person is being realized, with Trump's actions being noted and plotted against by Nation's Leaders... around the world.

Prudence and Leadership in the

Republican & Democratic Parties

completely failed the American Citizens... by allowing the two worse American Presidential Candidates to represent the only two political parties in this nation, and now these two political party's can do nothing..., as this man represent this nation around the world.

Trump is a danger to the world specifically, because he is the American President.

Democratic & Republican Parties

are at complete fault for where this nation is.

Here is what I like about what you are doing, and how you are doing it.    Most of our people have no idea of what is going on within the political arena, some who vote, vote for the person someone else told them to vote for, others vote because they are affiliated with a particular party.     Your work gives various perspectives and different views.     You provide your opinion, but never try to tell others which way to go, or what they need to decide.     I am sure that you have sent this info to Mr. Decatur, Tucker, Jones, and our most common contacts, so I will send the info to some new contacts within my email list.        Continue with your good and Godly Works, because just as Mr. James Tucker with the African-American Voice; ASKFMB is another communication source for our people as a whole.

SA President Zuma must face corruption charges, court rules

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma must face charges of corruption, fraud, racketeering and money laundering, the Supreme Court of Appeal has ruled.

It agreed with a lower court ruling last year that prosecutors could bring back 783 counts of corruption relating to a 1999 arms deal.

The charges had been set aside eight years ago, enabling Mr Zuma to become president. The president has always maintained his innocence.

In a statement, Mr Zuma's office said the ruling was "disappointing", but anticipated. The president now expected South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to consider representations from his legal team before making a decision about whether to prosecute him, it added.

The charges relate to Mr Zuma's relationship with a businessman, Shabir Shaik, who was tried and found guilty in 2005 of soliciting bribes from a French arms company "for the benefit of Zuma".

 

 

Magic mushrooms can 'reset' depressed brain

A hallucinogen found in magic mushrooms can "reset" the brains of people with untreatable depression, raising hopes of a future treatment, scans suggest.

The small study gave 19 patients a single dose of the psychedelic ingredient psilocybin.

Half of patients ceased to be depressed and experienced changes in their brain activity that lasted about five weeks.

However, the team at Imperial College London says people should not self-medicate.

There has been a series of small studies suggesting psilocybin could have a role in depression by acting as a "lubricant for the mind" that allows people to escape a cycle of depressive symptoms.
