.

.
ESPN pulled an announcer from covering an upcoming college football game at the University of Virginia because he shares the same name as Confederate General Robert E. Lee – even though the announcer is Asian-American.

ESPN removed college football announcer Robert Lee from covering the William & Mary at University of Virginia football game on September 2, 2017, because they were concerned it would be offensive to viewers, OutKick The Coverage reported Tuesday night.

After OutKick The Coverage published the report, ESPN gave the following statement:

We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties…

Over $6 Million In Social Security Benefits Stolen From Bank Accounts – Washington Free Beacon

Identity thieves stole over $6 million in Social Security benefits by hacking the government’s online direct deposit program, an agency watchdog reported. The Social Security Administration’s inspector general released an audit finding the agency’s “my Social Security” program has put roughly $11 million in benefits into the wrong bank accounts.

My Social Security was created in 2012 and allows beneficiaries to set up direct deposit accounts for their retirement and disability payments. Identity thieves soon began abusing the system.

“In January 2013, the Agency enhanced my Social Security to allow individuals to change their direct deposit bank information,” the inspector general said. “Shortly after SSA made this change, the Agency and the Office of the Inspector General began receiving fraud allegations related to unauthorized direct deposit changes.”

Since 2014, $10.9 million in benefit payments made to 7,200 individuals were deposited into the wrong accounts. Of that, $6.2 million were stolen and never recovered by the government…

Trump Strongly Suggests He Will Pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio During Arizona Speech – Fox News
.

.
President Trump on Tuesday told an audience in Phoenix that former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio will be “just fine” despite his recent conviction for willfully disregarding an Arizona judge’s order in 2011 to stop anti-immigrant traffic patrols.

Trump made the comments to a crowd in the Phoenix Convention Center.

Arpaio, 85, was convicted by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton of misdemeanor contempt of court.

Trump asked supporters in the crowd if Arpaio was “convicted for doing his job?”

The crowd cheered.

“He should have had a jury, but I’ll make a prediction: He’ll be just fine,” Trump said. “But I won’t do it tonight, because I don’t want to cause any controversy.”…

Nine people were killed and at least 54 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday evening and Monday morning.

Seven people were shot, one fatally, during a single mass shooting incident about 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

.

Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Camping World, doesn’t want anyone who supports Donald Trump to shop at any of his 120 stores across America.

Following the very fake news reports that President Trump had somehow supported white supremacists in Virginia, Lemonis said he had had enough.

“There’s no doubt that there is probably not many consumers in this country today that are in favor of what has been said in the last couple days – and if they are, frankly, don’t shop at my business,” Lemonis said last week in an appearance on CNBC.

The camping gear outlet is massive – $3.5 billion in revenue last year. And Lemonis is a big player in NASCAR, reports New England Sports Network…

Republicans Dig Deeper After Postal Service Cited For Workers’ Clinton Campaign Aid – Fox News

Republican lawmakers are casting a wider net in their search for wrongdoing at federal agencies in past election cycles, after learning the Postal Service violated the law by allowing employees to do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign while on leave.

The lawmakers blasted out letters on Monday to 10 other federal government agencies questioning their unpaid leave policy for union-related political work.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., led the charge on the review of agencies’ practices after spurring an investigation by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) beginning in October 2016. That inquiry revealed that the USPS violated federal law by letting employees perform union-funded work for Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic candidates while on leave from the agency.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., joined Johnson’s efforts this week by penning joint letters to the departments of Commerce, Homeland Security, Defense, Justice, Labor, Transportation, Treasury, Agriculture, Veterans Affairs, and the Social Security Administration Monday…

Left-Wing Terrorist Vandalizes America’s Oldest Columbus Monument In Baltimre – Washington Free Beacon

A 225-year-old monument to Christopher Columbus in Baltimore, said to be the oldest in the U.S. and the world dedicated to the Italian explorer still standing, was severely vandalized on Sunday night.

Vandals documented the desecration of the 44-foot-tall obelisk in a video posted online Monday, the Baltimore Brew reported.

A hole was smashed in the middle of the stone monument that left the words “Sacred to the Memory of Chris. Columbus Oct. XII MDCC VIIIC” unreadable.

The vandals left behind signs in the grass leaning against the monument. One reads: “Racism: Tear it down.” The other says: “The future is racial and economic justice.”…

Parents Outraged After Leftist Teacher Traumatizes Their 5-Year-Olds With Tranny Books – Life Site

A number of angry parents are considering legal action after a charter school kindergarten teacher staged what one critic calls a transgender “transition ceremony” in class for a five-year-old boy without informing parents beforehand.

But Rocklin Academy Schools has countered that it didn’t have to tell parents about the transgenderism lesson that has left a number of five-year-olds shaken and disturbed. Because gender identity isn’t sex education, the administration said, it’s not subject to California’s parental consent and opt-out laws, reported Fox40News.

Moreover, with gender identity and gender expression prohibited grounds for discrimination in the state, not to accept a five-year-old “trans girl” could leave the Sacramento-area charter school board open to lawsuits.

Parents only found out what happened from their kids, says Jonathan Keller of the California Family Council, a Focus on the Family-founded group that’s advising parents…

PayPal Bans Conservative Sites After Soros-Funded Group Attacks Them – Daily Caller

PayPal banned Jihad Watch and the American Freedom Defense Initiative from receiving online donations using their platform because of the site’s “activities” after being designated as “hate sites” by left-wing groups.

Jihad Watch was reportedly banned from PayPal on Saturday after ProPublica – a George Soros funded investigative group – targeted the site and its director Robert Spencer (not to be confused with white nationalist Richard Spencer) in a hit piece that claimed the site was guilty of “extreme hostility toward Muslims.”

The assault on Jihad Watch began on Friday when Spencer received an email that he described as a “threatening” from ProPublica journalist Lauren Kirchner.

The email informed Spencer that she was including his site among a list of hate sites identified as such by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) – both widely considered to be left-leaning organizations…

Trump Lays Out Winning Strategy For Afghanistan – Heritage Foundation

After months of speculation and delay, President Donald Trump has sided with the expert advice of his military and national security team on the way forward to the U.S. mission in Afghanistan.

In what was by far his best and most statesmanlike speech since taking office, Trump outlined a new approach Monday night to the ongoing war in Afghanistan: a laser-like focus on counterterrorism, jettisoning the quixotic nation-building rhetoric of the past, helping the Afghans defeat the Taliban insurgency (not doing it for them), lifting onerous restrictions placed by the Obama administration on the way the military conducts warfighting, and pressuring Pakistan and its support for certain elements of the Taliban…

Left-Wing Terrorist Tries To Bomb Confederate Statue In Houston – Conservative Review

A man has been arrested for trying to use explosives to blow up a statue of Confederate commander Richard Dowling at Hermann Park in Houston, Texas, over the weekend. The potential act of terrorism has drawn federal officers’ attention in search of further bomb-making materials.

The Houston Chronicle reports:

“When confronted Saturday night in the park, he tried to drink some of the liquid explosives but spit it out, officials said.

“Federal authorities said one of the tubes contained nitgroglycerin and hexamethylene triperoxide diamine, HMTD, a ‘highly explosive compound’ used as a primary explosive. Nitroclycerin, in its purest form, is a contact explosive.”

After the thwarted attack, a combination of state and federal law enforcement officials raided the home of a couple whose son, Andrew Schneck, is the focus of the investigation. The 25-year-old Schneck has a long history of run-ins with the law…

UK Subprime Lender Provident Crashes Most On Record, CEO Quits – Zero Hedge

UK subprime lender Provident Financial Plc crashed the most on record, its stock plunging over 73%, on what analysts called a “quadruple whammy”: a profit warning forecasting a full-year loss, scrapping its dividend, a regulator probe into its Vanquis Bank unit, and the departure of CEO, the aptly named, Peter Crook. “This is without doubt a disaster,” said Shore Capital’s Gary Greenwood. “Future profit performance will depend on management’s ability to rescue the situation, which is highly uncertain. We expect that further heads will roll.”

As a result, shares of the Bradford, UK-based company dropped more than 73% to 521 pence in London morning trade. The stock is down 82% this year, wiping more than 3 billion pounds from its market value…

Republican Arkansas Sen. John Boozman lobbied for low-wage Mexican foreign workers on behalf of a personal friend, emails obtained by The Daily Caller reveal.

A Boozman staffer, Rebecca Caldwell, emailed the U.S. consulate in Monterrey, Mexico to ask for 80 workers needed for a farm in Arkansas. The emails were obtained through an open record request by the Immigration Reform Law Institute and provided to TheDC.

Caldwell wrote in a May 28, 2015 email that she is contacting the consulate “on behalf of my constituent Doug Gillam of Gillam Farms of Arkansas, INC.”

“The senator has asked that I reach out to you regarding this issue as he is personal friends with [redacted],” Caldwell added.

Boozman’s office did not respond to a press inquiry about who this personal friend is. However, Gillam owns the farm alongside his brother, Jeremy, who is the Speaker of the Arkansas House of Representatives…

Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, who expressed wishes for President Trump’s assassination in a now-deleted Facebook post and resisted calls by Democrats and Republicans to resign, now faces expulsion if she does not step down.

“I am not resigning. What I said was wrong, but I am not going to stop talking about what led to that, which is the frustration and anger that many people across America are feeling right now,” Democrat State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Petition Asking Trump To Recognize Antifa As Terror Group Reaches Threshold For WH Response – Washington Examiner

A petition calling on the Trump administration to formally recognize the Antifa movement as a terrorist organization has reached the threshold after which the White House is compelled to reply.

The effort passed the 100,000 benchmark around 8 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday. Though the petition had 30 days to reach that goal, it did so in less than a week.

“AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition, started Thursday, states. The Washington Examiner initially reported on the petition on Friday, when it had 1,259 signatures.

Antifa is short for anti-fascists, and the people involved are generally extreme leftists known for their face-offs with right-wing activists, including recently in Berkeley, Calif. Antifa counter-protesters made an appearance in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend and clashed with white supremacy and neo-Nazi groups protesting the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue…

The Eclipse Is Racist Because It Fails To Affect Enough Black People, The Atlantic Suggests – Daily Caller
.

.
The Atlantic, a once-great magazine, has determined that the total eclipse of the sun due to occur on Monday will fail to affect enough black people.

The Atlantic’s very lengthy essay on the failure of the eclipse to occur where a sufficient number of black people reside is entitled “American Blackout.” It clocks in at a remarkable 4,544 words and does not appear to be satire.

Concerning “the Great American Eclipse,” Brooklyn Law School professor Alice Ristroph writes in the rapidly deteriorating magazine, “there live almost no black people” “along most of its path.”

The Atlantic’s longwinded law professor assures readers that “implicit bias of the solar system” is “presumably” not the cause of eclipse’s failure to affect enough black people…

10 Sailors Missing After USS John McCain Collides With Oil Ranker Off Singapore Coast – Circa

Ten Navy sailors are missing following a collision between the USS John McCain and an oil tanker off the east coast of Singapore. The McCain docked at Singapore’s naval base early Monday with “significant damage” to its hull following the accident with the Alnic MC.

Aircraft and vessels from the U.S., Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore are currently searching for the missing American personnel.

The collision is the second involving a ship from the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet in the Pacific in two months. The McCain, which is a guided missile destroyer, had been heading to Singapore on a routine port visit following a sensitive freedom-of-navigation operation last week.

The destroyer sailed near one of China’s man-made islands in the South China Sea, which is the subject of multiple territorial disputes in the region.

The Navy’s 7th Fleet said damage to the McCain’s hull flooded adjacent compartments including crew berths, communications rooms and machinery…

An associate of Linda Sarsour and an organizer for the Women’s March – who is a convicted terrorist and murderer – was stripped of her citizenship and ordered to be deported from the United States on Thursday after lying to U.S. officials.

Rasmieh Yousef Odeh (First name also spelled Rasmea), 70, lost her citizenship and will be removed from the U.S. for intentionally falsifying her U.S. citizenship documents after an in-depth investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), according to a statement from ICE.

Two hundred illegal migrants have been arrested in a crackdown on houses packed with foreign workers by dodgy landlords.

More than 250 properties were raided during the blitz on the often squalid accommodation used by migrants who do not have permission to be in Britain.

Many of those arrested were Indian nationals, but there were also workers from Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and Albania.

They were offered support if they chose to leave the country voluntarily, or told they faced deportation if they refused.

Some 24 landlords caught in the six-month operation were fined up to £3,000 for every illegal worker found living in their houses…
