Old Bill are a joke at the moment. I caught a fella breaking into a garage. I phoned old bill and guess what ??? They didn’t even show up. I kicked the fella up the arse with a full “ toe punt”. I ain’t seen the 2 bob theft back yet
Never one to miss an opportunity to critique Khan, who just so happens to be Muslim, Hopkins appears to have decided that among the responsibilities of being mayor is the role of social media manager.
The controversial former columnist tried to equate the hack with the shocking incidents of violent crime in the capital in recent months.
A few hours later, a presumably sleepy president was logging onto Twitter and couldn’t resist joining in.The result? A perfect example of why Twitter can sometimes be the worst place known to humanity as 16,000 (and counting) people tacitly endorsed the president’s tweet with a like or a retweet.
But the explosive Mueller hearings happen next Wednesday; that’s why Trump is stressed by ‘stupidying’, stupifying paranoia, anxiety and dark worry. Donald Trump is sweating right now. The President of the United States has lined up some foils to obscure and distract Mueller hearings – that’s the reason he used Ilhan Omar and her Squad earlier this week; he thought the hearing were happening this week; the rally was meant to rebutt Mueller but lo and behold – it wasn’t to be; Mueller did not happen as schedulled but Wednesday nex week instead- so Trump turned to his primary political weapon RACISM; he had to give a speech to those poor souls congregating in North Carolina for goodness sake. They were already there – hence the now-infamous ‘send her back’ chants that have provoked humanity around the world which he had been engineering since entering The White House. >>>CRIMSON TAZVINZWA; AIWA! NO!
President Barack Obama
The Squad- 4 African American Congresswomen
London Mayor Sadiq Khan … this particular foil; simply he is Muslim
This is the second time this month that Trump has retweeted Hopkins – just weeks ago he promoted a tweet in which she praised a number of far-right politicians and said “the fightback by proud nations is on”.
Hopkins listed the names of four European politicians, all of whom have a track record of populist and discriminatory views.
Hopkins also said that “god-willing/jihadi-failing” she will be alive to see “Boris Johnson in Number 10” and “Trump in the White House” and “Netanyahu building Israel”.
The four right-wing politicians named in Hopkins’ tweet are:
Jair Bolsonaro, the populist leader of Brazil and vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, immigration and abortion. In 2013 he claimed “90% of the kids adopted by LGBT couples” would be used as sex slaves.
Both countries are experiencing police violence against black citizens, but experts say there is major difference between African-American and Ethiopian-Israeli communities//Judy Maltz
Jerusalem (CNN)An off-duty police officer was in a playground with his family when he saw two men fighting, according to police accounts, which have been challenged by eye-witnesses. When the officer identified himself, police said the men threw stones at him. Fearing for his life, the officer pulled the trigger, police said. The bullet hit a 19-year-old black man, who later died in hospital.
Worka (R), the father of Solomon Teka, mourns over his body during his funeral.
Anger in the teenager’s community erupted after the shooting. In the following two days, protesters torched cars, damaged ambulances and burned tires as the violence spread across the country.
As the investigation began into the circumstances of the shooting, the officer was taken into custody and subsequently released and placed under house arrest. But it was too late to prevent the rioting in which dozens were injured on both sides, and 136 protesters were taken into custody, according to police.
It’s the type of violence sparked by perceived racial injustice that we’ve often seen in cities in the United States.
But this happened in Israel, and the black man who died, Solomon Teka, was Jewish.
Members of the Ethiopian community of Israel face policemen during clashes in the Israeli coastal city of Netanya on July 2, 2019.
The field is set. The mics are on — and soon the gloves are off. The first Democratic presidential debate of the 2020 election is underway, and NBC News will bring you real-time news, analysis and fact-checks of (almost) everything the 10 candidates on stage Wednesday night have to say.
Follow live as we kick off Night One of the two-night debate, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo.
Inslee talks about his immigration record
While everyone debated what they would do on immigration, Inslee talked about his record on the issue.
“I’m proud that we passed law that prevents local law enforcement from being turned into many ICE agents,” he said. “I’m proud to be the first governor to stand up to Donald Tump’s heinous Muslim ban. I’m proud to be a person who not only talks about Dreamers, but one of the first to help them get a college education so they can realize their dreams.”
Castro standing out?
I think it’s fair to say that, so far, among the lower-polling candidates, Castro is the only one who seems to be having a moment. Tough exchange with O’Rourke, answers that seem to be garnering positive attention online. Not getting cut off by other candidates or the moderators.
Julián Castro entered the night with a relatively low profile and slim polling averages. But the former Obama-era HUD secretary’s sharp, forceful comments about immigration could significantly raise his national profile.

Iran questions provide a breather
After fiery and passionate answers on health care and immigration, responses to questions on Iran provide a bit of a breather. There’s broad agreement to get back into Obama’s Iran deal or negotiate a new one, but not much debate otherwise.

Fact check: Would the 2013 immigration bill have lowered the debt?
The last Senate immigration bill “brings the debt down by 158 billion,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said on Wednesday night, referring to the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill that passed the Senate in 2013.
