    Scenes of last year’s anti-Mubarak uprising returned to Cairo’s Tahrir Square Monday as thousands rioted, some of them torching the headquarters of presidential candidate and former prime minister Ahmed Shafik. No deaths were reported and there were few injuries, in sharp contrast to last year’s demonstrations in which Mubarak’s security forces shot protesters on the spot. Shafik and Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi emerged as the winners in the first round of voting, the first time Egyptians have been able to vote in a presidential election that was not rigged. However, the presence of Shafik as one of the two...
  • FBI Seeks To Charge George Zimmerman With Hate Crime

    SANFORD, Fla. — WFTV has learned charges against George Zimmerman could be getting more serious. State prosecutors said Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman, profiled and stalked 17-year-old Trayvon Martin before killing him, so the FBI is now looking into charging him with a hate crime. Zimmerman admitted to killing Martin in February during a confrontation. However, he claims the shooting was in self-defense. He's facing a second-degree murder charge, which carries a maximum possible sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. In the meantime, FBI investigators are actively questioning witnesses in the retreat at the Twin Lakes neighborhood,...

Riots broke out when police attempted to break up the Muslim group, which was protesting against the far-right demonstrators, who displayed anti-Islamic caricatures during their protest. The anti-Muslim demonstration was sponsored by the Pro Germany Citizens' Movement, which accuses Muslim immigrants of attempting to change German culture and law to accommodate them, against the wishes of the German...

       French Socialist presidential candidate François Hollande debuted a campaign video set to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s hit song, “Ni*gas In Paris.” The video, which translates in English to “48 Hours with François Hollande,” features the candidate making campaign stops and his supporters excitedly talking about him. While there are moments of the song that are blocked out with audio clips from his speeches and supporters, most of the song’s extremely explicit lyrics (“ni**a,” “motherf***er,” “s**t,” to name a few) are still in tact. Although the song is in English, the explicit words are hardly new to French ears.  “48...

The main drivers that prompted the rating downgrade are: (1) The material increase in long-term funding risks for euro area sovereigns with high levels of public debt, such as Italy, as a result of the sustained and non-cyclical erosion of confidence in the wholesale finance environment for euro sovereigns,...

    FRANCES FOX PIVEN: "I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are...

    US President Barack Obama will be held responsible for the failure of the Middle East peace process, members of the Palestinian Authority delegation to the UN General Assembly meeting in New York charged on Thursday. The latest allegation came as the PA called for anti-Obama demonstrations in protest against his opposition to the Palestinian statehood bid. Dozens of Palestinians answered the call on Thursday, demonstrating against Obama in the West Bank city of Ramallah. The protesters carried signs with anti-Obama slogans and some burned pictures of the US president, Army Radio reported. The officials said that relations between the PA...

    Reuters: Greece to cut pensions over 1,200 Euros per month by 20% Just a headline for now. Gotta be a lot of people collecting more than 1,200 Euros per month. My guess is that if the rioting hasn't started (again) it will shortly.

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg stepped a bit out of character Friday morning when he predicted that there could be riots in the streets if the federal government doesn’t “get serious” about creating jobs. Mayor Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs. "We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs," Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show. "That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."—New York Daily News Quick to react was the Bellevue-based Citizens...

    he Israel Defense Forces are preparing for the possibility of Palestinian Authority Arab riots beginning September 20, when the PA will bring its statehood bid to the United Nations. Israel's military will begin to call up its reserves, probably starting this Sunday, September 18, sources said Thursday. Arutz Sheva has been informed that the residents of the Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria have warned the Arab residents of PA-controlled areas that if they approach the security fences surrounding their towns, the response will be “unequivocal.” The warning comes in the wake of threats by PA Arabs to march on...

    Rewriting the U.S. Constitution. Imposing a "Robin Hood tax" on most financial transactions worldwide with the goal of taking from the "rich" to give to the "poor." Giving the Federal Reserve permission to regulate interest rates on savings accounts. These are just some of the policies endorsed by a group backing a "Day of Rage" targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism this Saturday.

    A new war that threatens to unravel American society may be brewing. The war has already been openly and publicly declared. Not by a foreign enemy or even a terrorist organization, but by members of the United States Congress. By union leaders. And by the vice president of the United States. Even while successfully implementing the most radical leftist agenda this country has ever known, Barack Obama, the Messiah of the radical, socialist left, has taken some big body blows. Frustrated, disillusioned, and angry, the liberal wing of the Democratic party is becoming unhinged day by day as they witness...

    A "flash point" in law-enforcement terms is "a point at which someone or something bursts suddenly into action or being." One such point sits just ahead on the horizon in America, with various leftists and anarchists preparing to mobilize all their reserves for a burst into action beginning on and around Sept. 17. The goal appears to be to bring the Arab Spring and European-style mob action stateside. While various websites related to the events call for "peaceful" protests against government and business, the website names contain words such as "rage" and "revolution." What is their purpose? Frankly, it doesn't...
