from The Duran:
The West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted to formally seek the removal of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to mayor John Duran who tweeted: “West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame.” Duran then compared President Trump to a dark wizard from Harry Potter known as a horcrux.

The Magnitsky Act Behind the Scenes has been pulled from everywhere. You do not ban a film in Europe and the United States if it is wrong. This is perhaps a huge cover-up that goes really beyond comprehension. The film was funded by ZDF TV in Europe and they have the power to prevent it from being shown despite the fact that they are taking a huge loss. They would not do that unless there was political pressure behind it.

UPDATE: YouTube is now joining in on the censorship action, permanently shutting down the popular Alex Jones – Infowars channel. This is a despicable display of collusion to shut down opposing viewpoints.
Facebook has announced that it has removed four pages belonging to Infowars’ Alex Jones for “repeatedly posting content over the past several days” that breaks its community standards.
The social media monopoly said it removed the pages “for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies.”
First They Came For Infowars……. Tomorrow We Will All Be Alex Jones: Independent Media Silenced – They Are Coming For Us All Now
by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
The same liberal media that has been bitterly whining about their First Amendment right of a free press for the last week, claiming that is somehow endangered because rally attendees screamed #CNNSUCKS at them, are now celebrating the decision by Facebook to permanently remove Alex Jones and InfoWars pages from their platform on the same day that Apple has removed the entire library for five of Infowars’ six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps.
This comes just days after YouTube removed multiple Alex Jones videos and gave him a community strike for alleged “hate speech,” which is the catch-all excuse being used by Apple, Facebook, and Spotify as their justification to silence him. A YouTube strike effectively prevents Jones from livestreaming his broadcasts on the platform. (I just clicked the Alex Jones Channel on YouTube, and received the message “This account has been terminated for violating YouTube’s community standards.”)

A city’s police department has already tied its own annual record for officer-involved shootings—and it is only August.
The Phoenix Police Department set a new record last month and—it was not for the cutest lip sync challenge. PPD officers have shot 31 citizens this year, tying the record set for shootings in one year, and it is only August!
The officer-involved shooting record will undoubtedly be broken, and soon, if the law of averages holds true. Phoenix city leaders are concerned, even commissioning a new study to investigate why the number of officer-involved shootings has seemingly skyrocketed past previous years.

Clare County, Mich. – Delores Saltzman, an 80-year-old grandma was recently arrested because she had an expired medical marijuana card and police found a very small amount of cannabis in her home, about the equivalent of just a few joints.
Last month, Clare County Sheriff’s Deputy Ashley Gruno went by Saltzman home and knocked on the door around 9 pm, in search of the woman’s great-granddaughter, reportedly to return a lost phone and ID. The officer immediately smelled marijuana and began interrogating the poor old woman. Saltzman was honest with the officer and told her that she was a medical patient that allowed her card to expire, and she was arrested on that small technicality.
