Malcolm Nance: EVIDENCE: #Russian mercenaries in Syria killing like #ISIS. (GRAPHIC WARNING)

https://twitter.com/MalcolmNance/status/1196119229122019329
The video is being posted by multiple new Twitter handles with a 2:19 video. The Russian speaking mercenaries douse the body in fuel then set it on fire while laughing. This is a #WarCrimes case

The first video shows the mercenaries beheading the Syrian man. I won't use stills to present the video as there are none that are useful to the public. They are playing music while cutting his head off. It is 1:38 in length.

The mercenaries are listening to a song called "I am Russian special forces, I am going to kill" - (Я российский спецназ, я иду убивать )

May god have mercy on the soul of the person who takes this job:

Congrats to Hallie Jackson:

Every day is an adventure with @HallieJackson by my side, can’t wait to show this little person the world as a family!!

KNUS radio host Craig Silverman taken off the air midshow for criticizing Trump

Source: The Denver Post

Craig Silverman, a former deputy district attorney in Denver and current radio host on the conservative 710 KNUS, was taken off the air midshow Saturday after replaying an old interview clip in which he expressed hesitations about President Donald Trump.

Silverman told The Denver Post in a text message that the show was cut by management as he replayed parts of a 2015 interview he conducted with Trump confidant Roger Stone. On Friday, Stone was convicted of impeding investigators in a bid to protect the president.

In the clip, Silverman told Stone that one thing that concerned him about Trump was his relationship with Roy Cohn, the president’s former personal lawyer who helped Sen. Joe McCarthy during the investigation into suspected Communists in the 1950s.

Silverman responded to state representative Dylan Roberts, an Eagle Democrat, on Twitter, saying “I cannot and will not toe strict Trump party line. I call things I see them.”

Some news from the Morrison deposition that will create more intrigue - Morrison says BOLTON had a one-on-one meeting with TRUMP about releasing Ukraine security assistance. Bolton told Morrison after Trump "wasn't ready to do it."

BOLTON also had very specific advice about what to do about anything SONDLAND-related: "Do not get involved, and make sure the lawyers are tracking."

FOR SAMA (2019) - Official Trailer - PBS Distribution



FOR SAMA is both an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war.

Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice–whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.

The film is the first feature documentary by Emmy award-winning filmmakers, Waad al-Kateab and Edward Watts. For more visit, www.ForSamaFilm.com

Prince Andrew: I thought staying with Epstein was 'honourable thing'

Source: The Guardian

Prince Andrew has said he regrets staying with the convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein but believed it was the “honourable” thing to do at the time.

The prince made the comments in an interview with BBC Two’s Newsnight programme, the first time he has spoken publicly about his friendship with Epstein. The programme is to be broadcast on Saturday night.

When asked by Emily Maitlis why he stayed in the house of a convicted sex offender in a pre-recorded interview, understood to have been the result of six months of negotiations with the royal household, Andrew described it as a “convenient place to stay”. He said: “I’ve gone through this in my mind so many times but at the end of the day with the benefit of all the hindsight that one can have it was definitely the wrong thing to do but at the time I felt it was the honourable and right thing to do.

“I admit fully my judgment was probably coloured by my tendency to be too honourable but that’s just the way it is.”

Give me a fucking break.

Stephen Miller Can Push Racist Crap, but 'The President Has His Back'

When the Southern Poverty Law Center’s blog Hatewatch revealed on Tuesday that Stephen Miller had pushed racist—and explicitly white-nationalist—content over and over again in 2015 and 2016, President Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser didn’t need any reassurances from his boss or his colleagues that his job was safe. Practically everyone in the building already knew it.

“Stephen is not going anywhere,” a senior White House official said on Tuesday afternoon, shortly after the story started going viral. “The president has his back.”

Since then, six other senior Trump administration officials with knowledge of Miller’s standing with the president and top staffers have all individually told The Daily Beast that the story did not endanger Miller’s position, or change Trump’s favorable view of him. Two of them literally laughed at the mere suggestion that the Hatewatch exposé could have toppled or hobbled the top Trump adviser.

Katie McHugh, a disgraced former Breitbart staffer who provided Hatewatch with the trove of emails, told the blog that Miller had personally flagged for her in July 2015 an American Renaissance “article about crime statistics and race.” American Renaissance is a white-supremacist website beloved by fascists and alt-right adherents. McHugh added, “I responded in the affirmative because I had read it. Many of us [on the far-right] had read it. I remember being struck by the way he called it ‘AmRen,’ the nickname.”

Publicly, the White House has turned to a patently absurd defense of Miller, the president’s White House speechwriter and go-to immigration restrictionist. Several prominent Democrats have denounced Miller or called for his resignation in the wake of the Hatewatch report. On Friday, BuzzFeed reported that Justice Department and Homeland Security officials were trashing the Miller emails as “sickening” proof that the Trump aide is spearheading a racist enterprise and deserves to be ousted from the administration.
