Fox News host Tucker Carlson called U.S. National Park Service acting director David Vela a “moron” who should “resign or be fired” for interjecting race into a discussion about who visits the parks.

“At a time like this, a time of crisis, so many Americans are finding refuge in nature,” Carlson said during Thursday night’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “In nature, there are no political parties. There are no political debates. There are no divisions, There is no race or racism. There’s just God’s creation. It’s a respite from all the bad things, but not anymore. The national parks, “ABC News” is now telling us, are in fact racist.”

The Fox News host then played an ABC clip interviewing Vela where they say that America’s National Park Service says that the “persistent whiteness” of their parks is an “existential crisis.”

“The persistent whiteness of the national parks. Systemic racism. What does that mean?” Carlson asked. “Is it racism that the Grand Canyon is a long drive from Phoenix? Do we have to relocate Yellowstone to an urban center? Maybe.”

Carlson then played the remainder of the clip, which showed a park visitor saying she didn’t “feel welcome” because more people didn’t look like her.

North Korea does not feel the need to have talks with the United States, which would be nothing more than “a political tool” for Washington, a senior North Korean diplomat said on Saturday, ahead of a U.S. envoy’s visit to South Korea.

Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said negotiations would not work out between Washington and Pyongyang and there will be no change in North Korea’s policy.

“We do not feel any need to sit face to face with the U.S., as it does not consider the DPRK-U.S. dialogue as nothing more than a tool for grappling its political crisis,” Choe said in a statement carried by state-run KCNA news agency.

DPRK stands for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea’s formal name.

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun is due to visit South Korea next week to discuss stalled talks with North Korea.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un should meet again before the U.S. elections in November, which would help resume the stalled nuclear negotiations.

In this week’s White House Report Card, President Trump is looking to Independence Day to revive his reelection campaign with a powerful declaration of war on the so-called “cancel culture” sweeping the nation targeting everything from the Founding Fathers to the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Indians.

At Mount Rushmore Friday night, for example, Trump said, “Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s destiny. In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country and for each other.”

Ghislaine Maxwell was finally caught Thursday after being on the lam for months following the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein in August 2019.

The couple became known for their alleged perverted escapades on Epstein’s private plane, called the “Lolita Express,” and on Epstein’s private Caribbean island, sometimes called “Orgy Island” or the “Island of Sin,” following allegations that Epstein and Maxwell trafficked and abused underage girls. The two also allegedly passed the victims around to Epstein’s famous friends.

Maxwell shared Epstein’s circle, which has included numerous celebrities who’ve allegedly appeared in photos with Maxwell.

one look at that pic

Ghislaine Maxwell was born in 1961, in Maisons-Laffitte, France,[10] the ninth and youngest child of Elisabeth (née Meynard), a French-born scholar, and Robert Maxwell, a Czechoslovak-born British media proprietor. Her father was from a Jewish family and her mother was of Huguenot descent.

Convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s cohort Ghislaine Maxwell will fully cooperate with authorities, according to Epstein’s Ponzi scheme partner Steven Hoffenberg.

A grand jury indicted the British socialite and heiress on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors for illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury. She was arrested at 8:30 am Thursday morning in Bradford, New Hampshire.

Seventy-five-year-old Hoffenberg, who served 18 years in prison for masterminding one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in history with Epstein, told The Sun that Maxwell will “totally cooperate” with authorities. Epstein avoided jail time for his role in the Ponzi scheme, according to Hoffenberg, but later died of apparent suicide in a New York City jail in August 2019 after being convicted of sex crimes.

“They knew where she was all the time [in New Hampshire],” Hoffenberg told the publication. “It was a question if America was going to take the case or not, now America has made up its mind to take the case.”

Hoffenberg reportedly maintains contact with Maxwell’s spokesperson, and told the Sun that Maxwell did not think she would be arrested.

“If they keep her in prison, she’ll crack in two seconds,” he said. “She’s not able to take that sort of cruel punishment, prison is too tough and hard, she’ll have to be in solitary confinement, and she’ll snap.”

“She’s going to cooperate and be very important,” he added, before noting that her words might implicate high profile people including the UK’s Prince Andrew. “Andrew may be very concerned, and there’s a lot of people very worried, a lot of powerful people been named [in the scandal], and she knows everything.”

Man, which is technically neither part of the United Kingdom nor a British Overseas Territory like the Falkland Islands but a semi-independent Crown Dependency tied to the British government through its historic relationship with the British Crown, was home to fewer than 200 people who identified as Black/Black British when its 2011 census was taken, along with 1,624 people who identified as Asian/Asian British, 354 people who identified as Other, and 748 people who identified as Mixed — less than 3.5 per cent of the population, all told.

This has not stopped it from being dragged into the contentious Black Lives Matter debate which has spread across the West since the death of George Floyd in the United States, however, with popular Manx Radio host Stu Peters finding himself “cancelled” after denying he had “white privilege” during a conversation with a caller.

Federal and military investigators said Thursday a soldier missing since April was killed by a fellow soldier stationed at the same Texas base.

The revelation followed demands for the Army to release details about its investigation of the disappearance.

A criminal complaint released by federal prosecutors charges a civilian with helping hide the body of 20-year-old solider Vanessa Guillen. The document says the civilian helped the other soldier get rid of evidence after he bludgeoned Guillen with a hammer at Fort Hood in Central Texas and dismembered and dumped the body.

The lawyer for the family of a soldier missing since April says Army investigators believe the woman was killed by Aaron Robinson, who then killed himself.

President Donald Trump called Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr. on Thursday to offer his condolences over the death of his son, Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr., who was shot and killed inside Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP).

The CHOP was an area of several square blocks surrounding the East Precinct of the Seattle Police Department, which law enforcement was forced to abandon by city leaders after days of confrontation with Black Lives Matter protesters.

Following the departure of the police on June 9, the activists set up barricades and declared themselves the Seattle Autonomous Zone (SAZ) or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ). Local Democratic leaders prevented the police from returning to enforce the law. Mayor Jenny Durkan downplayed public concerns, telling CNN June 11 that the zone was “more like a block party atmosphere” and that “[w]e could have the summer of love.” But it was not to be.

The CHOP was peaceful during the daylight hours, but violent at night, as armed groups roamed the streets with weapons and enforced their own brand of vigilante discipline. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best openly criticized city leaders for allowing lawlessness to prevail, as did President Trump, who constantly challenged Durkan and Gov. Jay Inslee to intervene to end the chaos. On June 20, two people were shot, one fatally — the first of several shootings.

Police were preparing another round of tear gas to use against a rock-throwing crowd when they got word from Mayor Jacob Frey on the night of Thursday, May 28, to abandon the city’s Third Precinct, the station where the four officers charged in the killing of George Floyd had worked.

“Everyone from P3, load up and go,” a lieutenant is heard saying just after 10:09 p.m. local time, according to police radio traffic recorded by two websites, Broadcastify and OpenMHz.

The Ogala Sioux tribal council voted on Friday to ban President Donald Trump and the South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem from Mount Rushmore hours ahead of a planned Fourth of July celebration.

The president and governor were due at the monument on Friday evening for the celebration, which will include a fireworks celebration.

Native News Online reported that 7,500 are expected to attend the celebration.

The tribe said the lack of government-to-government consultation on the event was a primary motivator for the vote. Mount Rushmore sits on territory that was unceded in treaties in the Black Hills.

Newly released research found that coronavirus patients who took the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine were more likely to survive while being treated in a hospital.

The study, conducted by the Henry Ford Health System in southeast Michigan, measured the mortality rates and treatments of 2,541 patients representing a mix of races, genders, and ages. The research team found that 26% of patients who were not given hydroxychloroquine died compared to 13% of those who were taking the drug. The median age of those studied was 64.

"In this multi-hospital assessment, when controlling for COVID-19 risk factors, treatment with hydroxychloroquine alone and in combination with azithromycin was associated with reduction in COVID-19 associated mortality," the study's authors wrote. The peer-reviewed study was published this week in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study adds texture to the findings of the Department of Veterans Affairs in a study that showed an increased mortality rate among veterans who were taking the anti-malarial drug. The agency noted that the veterans were at a higher risk because of underlying conditions.

Public officials and media pundits have been highly critical of the drug's use during the pandemic because there has been no proven science behind its ability to combat or ward off the coronavirus. The Food and Drug Administration even issued a warning about using the drug to treat the coronavirus outside of a hospital setting or clinical trial, saying it could cause heart rhythm problems.

New Yorkers have new masters at COVID compliance. They now have the power to issue subpoenas forcing the general public to comply with COVID compliance contact tracers. You have no right to remain silent.

Not only that, but any New Yorker who refuses to answer their interrogation questions is also subject to arrest.

Who knows where it goes from there. Apparently, their power is infinite.

The process of “Contact Tracing” permits the state authority to identify the travel, contacts, and associated risks presented by anyone who tests positive for the COVID-19 virus.

In other words, you then lose your constitutional rights in the communist republic of New York. They can force you to answer.

Don't have an "EZPass" in your car.

Wear a facemask that obfuscates your whole face (using the excuse of the Chinee Virus) so the facial recognition cameras that they haven't installed everywhere can't see your face at all.

For a couple of years now they make the batteries built in so can't be removed and reattached. First I imagined that it was a clear case of jewry so normalfags couldn't replace the batteries when they got old, and be forced to buy a new one.

The Washington Redskins said it will conduct a "thorough review" of the team's name.

The announcement, which was first reported Friday by ESPN's Adam Schefter, comes amid renewed calls for the team to change its name, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans.

“This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors, the National Football League, and the local community it is proud to represent on and off the field," Dan Snyder, the owner of the team, said in a statement.

“This issue is of personal importance to me, and I look forward to working closely with Dan Snyder to make sure we continue the mission of honoring and supporting Native Americans and our military,” said Ron Rivera, the team’s new head coach.

The Redskins, who have used the moniker dating back to the 1930s, have long faced calls to change the team's name. The pressure has increased amid a national reckoning on race after the death in police custody of George Floyd.

Netizens have come up with creative alternative ways to express the protest slogan “Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times” after the government called it secessionist and pro-independence.

The government released a statement on Thursday night claiming the emblematic protest slogan reflected calls for Hong Kong independence, subversion of state power and altering the semi-autonomous territory’s legal status.

Pro-Beijing heavyweight Maria Tam told reporters on Friday that she had always found the slogan to be problematic.

“When you talk about liberation, in its Chinese meaning, in our historical events, it’s when you have one piece of land… That place belongs to me but somebody took it and now I am going to retrieve it,” she said. “That’s the meaning of liberation. So as far as we are concerned, Hong Kong belongs to China.”

Tam added that one could not judge whether a single slogan or gesture violated the four crimes – secession, subversion, terrorism and colluding with foreign powers – under the national security law.

Barrister Erik Shum told HKFP the government statement alone could not be considered legally binding. However, the government may use the statement as evidence in a future prosecution, with an assumption that the defendant has read it.

“They may infer that any use of the slogan from July 2 onwards shows that [defendants] are using the slogan under the meaning interpreted by the government,” he said. “But it does not mean that the judge will directly adopt the interpretation in this statement.”

Shum also added that the statement does not specify what kind of acts involving the slogan risk violating the law, and under what circumstances.
