from The Richie Allen Show:
Police in Frankfurt swooped on suspected pedophiles after busting a massive child pornography website on the ‘dark web’. The site had almost 90,000 users who swapped graphic images of children and arranged meetings to abuse them.
The forum, known as ‘Elysium,’ had existed on the internet’s darkside since the end of 2016.
Frankfurt public prosecutor’s and Germany’s BKA Federal Police said they arrested several people connected to the forum, including the sites suspected operator, a 39-year-old man living in Frankfurt.
The unidentified man was arrested on June 12 when police raided his apartment seizing the server used to host the site.

A later correction was both feeble and misleading.
The internet is full of fake news websites whose “too good to be true” stories are usually easy to spot. They each have their intended audience.
For the libertarians you have fake news sites that say: “Julian Assange reveals new CIA plan to install 24/7 real time camera drones in all new Florida homes in trial program”.
For the alt-left: “Donald Trump, one Russian businessman and a prostitute from Brazil–you’ll never believe what they got up to”.
For the alt-right: “Hillary Clinton’s ties to Mexican drug cartel EXPOSED”.

One of the most confusing things about the rise of cryptocurrencies is that most countries at the present time are implementing different rules and regulations regarding their ownership, taxation, and even definition. For example, the country of Japan has gone full bore into cryptocurrencies, even passing laws that legitimize Bitcoin as a medium of exchange while also removing any tax obligations on its purchase or use. Yet over in the U.S., a court ruling calling Bitcoin a security is the current standard, and means that transactions in the cryptocurrency are to be designated as property, and subject to capital gains taxes.
from Russia Insider:
A little over a year ago, Russia started a program called “A Hectare in the Far East,” which offered citizens free land in the sparsely populated areas of the Far East to encourage migration.
The project was met with much skepticism, but it has so far exceeded expectations, with more than 95,000 applications lodged and more than 21,600 plots of land registered to new users.
hile some critics remain, analysts estimate the free land program could act as a catalyst for the biggest migration trend to the Russian Far East since the time of the agrarian reform at the start of the 20th century.

Far Left Darling Linda Sarsour tells Muslims to fight jihad in the United States.

Socialist chavista gangs known as “colectivos” stormed Venezuela’s National Assembly Wednesday – the nation’s Independence Day – and kept hundreds of legislators and journalists hostage for eight hours, according to people who were later released.
Gang members also savagely beat legislators and protesters, staining the walls of the national legislator with blood and sending multiple lawmakers to the hospital.
The government of dictator Nicolás Maduro accused the victims of the violence of attempting to “murder” chavistas in a state television report.
New Day host doubles down
CNN host Chris Cuomo was confronted today over why he deleted a tweet that asked whether the identity of the individual who created the infamous Trump wrestling meme should have been revealed.
The New Day host was caught up in the ‘CNN blackmail’ controversy when he tweeted, “Should CNN reveal name of Reddit user who made trump wrestling video? Had a lot of bigoted and hateful material on page and website.”
Cuomo was asked by the Rebel’s Laura Loomer why he “deleted a tweet that encouraged the extortion of a Reddit user who posted a meme about CNN?”

Getting accused of jaywalking, as a slew of recent videos shows, can be a dangerous or even deadly experience for people, especially if they have dark skin.
Mesa, AZ — A major protest against police brutality will occur Thursday evening to be held outside police headquarters in Mesa after cell phone footage surfaced showing Mesa Police giving a man a beat down for allegedly crossing the street the wrong way — jaywalking. The cell phone footage shows Jason Michael Barton getting manhandled by two Mesa police officers.
Predictably, Mesa police are blaming the victim for the officers’ use of force, but community leaders like Reverend Jarrett Maupin aren’t buying it. And they say the community is outraged.
