Anti-refugee right-wingers go on rampage in Leipzig, say police

Source: Reuters

Over 200 masked right-wing supporters, carrying placards with racist overtones, went on a rampage in the eastern city of Leipzig on Monday night, throwing fireworks, breaking windows and vandalizing buildings, police said.

Emotions are running high in German cities after gangs of young migrant men sexually assaulted women at New Year in mass attacks in Cologne and other towns.

The attacks have deepened public scepticism towards Chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door refugee policy and her mantra that Germany can cope with the 1.1 million migrants who arrived in the country last year. It has also fueled right-wing groups.

As roughly 2,000 anti-Muslim "LEGIDA" protesters marched peacefully in the city center, police said a separate group of 211 people walked through the southern Connewitz district before setting of fireworks, erecting barricades and vandalizing property. The top floor of one building caught fire.

And now we're not going to know if this is what we are buying.

China’s Food Safety Issues Worse Than You Thought

In April, I began an email correspondence with an American I’ll call Susan (she prefers to remain anonymous), who has lived in China for 15 years while working in publishing. She currently resides in Beijing and also lived in a small town in Hubei province.

Susan came across our Change.org petition (325,000-plus signatures) asking Congress to “Keep Chinese Chicken Out of Our Schools and Supermarkets” and reached out to me. While she loves China and its people, Susan’s first-hand knowledge of China’s poor food safety practices leaves her deeply concerned about the prospect of American chicken being processed in China for consumption in the U.S.

To provide consumers with even more information about how a weak Chinese food safety system poses a real threat to Americans, I have compiled a Q&A excerpt from my often-startling correspondence with Susan.

Suspected ringleader of the Paris terror attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, has been killed

Source: Fox News

PARIS — Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected ringleader in last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris, has been killed, the Paris prosecutor’s office said Thursday.

Gunfire and explosions shook the northern Paris suburb of Saint-Denis early Wednesday as heavily armed police stormed a building where suspects linked to Friday’s deadly terrorist attacks were believed to be holed up.

Police blocked off roads before dawn Wednesday and told residents to stay inside in Saint-Denis, a diverse, working-class area that is home to the Stade de France sports stadium where three suicide bombings took place Friday.

Two terrorist suspects were said by a police source to have been killed. One of them was a woman who blew herself up with a suicide belt, authorities said.

MSNBC Cancels Ronan Farrow’s Show Along with Joy Reid’s

Source: Mediaite

In addition to canceling Joy Reid‘s daytime show The Reid Report, which MSNBC sources confirmed to Mediaite earlier today, the network is also canceling Ronan Farrow’s show and moving Way Too Early’s Thomas Roberts back to a dayside role, anchoring a straight news show from 1-3 p.m. ET daily

Neither Reid nor Farrow have been fired by the network. Reid will become MSNBC’s national correspondent, producing original reporting for on air and online programming. Farrow is expected to host a new series of primetime specials for MSNBC and will be featured as a special correspondent across the network’s schedule.

The change in daytime programming represents a conscious shift by the network away from more opinionated hosts and towards a more news-focused lineup. Following Morning Joe, José Díaz-Balart’s show will air for two hours starting at 9 a.m., followed by Tamron Hall at 11, Andrea Mitchell at 12 and then Roberts from 1-3 p.m. each day.

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will fill in for Roberts on Way Too Early until a more permanent replacement is found.

Sam Brownback, a desperate and failing governor, turns to homophobia

By now, just about every living creature in America has heard about the latest political firestorm out of Kansas.

Gov. Sam Brownback, a conservative Republican, issued an executive order rescinding protections for state workers who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Brownback is all but proclaiming that LGBT people should have fewer rights. The order lifts protections against firing, discriminating against or harassing a state worker for being anything but straight. Under Brownback's administration, that person now has no right to file a complaint as a member of a legally protected class of people.

Comedian Jon Stewart seized on the governor’s order and, making the obligatory connection between Kansas and "The Wizard of Oz," quipped that there’s "no place like homophobia." Meanwhile, on Twitter the hashtag #Brownbackwards quickly began trending. The governor should not have been surprised about the response.

One would think that Brownback had enough on his plate without inviting more controversy. Kansas is in fiscal turmoil, reeling in the face of a projected $600 million budget deficit next year. A major reason for this pickle is the massive tax cuts Brownback and his party enacted. Kansans have not warmly appreciated the $28 million in cuts to elementary and secondary schools the governor’s office announced earlier in the month. Rural and suburban school districts are testily fighting for their piece of the shrinking pie as Kansas’ public school funding formula must be rewritten following a state supreme court ruling.

“Shadowy” anti-net neutrality group submitted 56.5% of comments to FCC

Source: Arstechnica.com

"A shadowy organization with ties to the Koch Brothers" spearheaded an anti-net neutrality form letter writing campaign that tipped the scales against net neutrality proponents, according to an analysis released today by the Sunlight Foundation.

The first round of comments collected by the Federal Communications Commission were overwhelmingly in support of net neutrality rules. But a second round of "reply comments" that ended September 10 went the other way, with 60 percent opposing net neutrality, according to the Sunlight Foundation. The group describes itself as a nonpartisan nonprofit that seeks to expand access to government records.

The foundation used natural language processing techniques to analyze 1.6 million reply comments.

"In marked contrast to the first round, anti-net neutrality commenters mobilized in force for this round, and comprised the majority of overall comments submitted, at 60 percent," the Sunlight Foundation wrote. "We attribute this shift almost entirely to the form-letter initiatives of a single organization, American Commitment, who are single-handedly responsible for 56.5 percent of the comments in this round."
