Capitol Police stopped children's choir from singing national anthem in rotunda: 'It might offend someone'

Last week, a group of Capitol Police officers reportedly halted a children's choir from singing the National Anthem in the Capitol Rotunda, citing concerns that it "might offend someone."

The choir, comprised of patriotic young children, hoped to express their love for their country through the time-honored tradition of singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" in the echo-filled chamber of the Rotunda.

However, they were stopped mid-performance by law enforcement officers tasked with protecting the very symbol of our democracy, despite having a permit for the concert, Gateway Pundit reports.

Comment: We should really just stop referring to the country itself at all, in any context. Too offensive to some, you know.

Woke Cambridge University now teaching Anglo-Saxons didn't exist

A high quality reconstruction of the Anglo Saxon helmet from Sutton Hoo.
Cambridge is teaching students that Anglo-Saxons did not exist as a distinct ethnic group as part of efforts to undermine "myths of nationalism".

Britain's early medieval history is taught by the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic, but the terms within its own title are being addressed as part of efforts to make teaching more "anti-racist".

Its teaching aims to "dismantle the basis of myths of nationalism" by explaining that the Anglo-Saxons were not a distinct ethnic group, according to information from the department.

The department's approach also aims to show that there were never "coherent" Scottish, Irish and Welsh ethnic identities with ancient roots.

The increased focus on anti-racism comes amid a broader debate over the continued use of terms like "Anglo-Saxon", with some in academia alleging that the ethnonym is used to support "racist" ideas of a native English identity.

Comment: RT solicited some comment on the move:

In a push to diversify the armed services, staff at Britain's Royal Air Force were told to stop selecting "useless white male pilots", in the latest assault on the native population of the country.

According to a report from London's Daily Telegraph, an email sent to RAF staff on Jan 19, 2021 from Squadron Leader Andrew Harwin complained that their training courses for pilots were "predominantly white male heavy," without enough candidates from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.

The Squadron Leader reportedly wrote:
If we don't have enough BAME and female to board then we need to make the decision to pause boarding and seek more BAME and female from the RAF. I don't really need to see loads of useless white male pilots, let's get as focused as possible, I am more than happy to reduce boarding if needed to have a balanced BAME/female/male board.
Speaking to the broadsheet, a source within the Royal Air Force said:
"The email clearly demonstrates the endemic culture that was created by the senior leadership to chase ridiculous diversity statistics that were patently unachievable. This culture extended to issuing orders that were illegal."

Nearly 30 children have gone missing in Cleveland in the first two weeks of May, in an "extraordinary" surge of disappearances in the area, officials said.

Cleveland police said 27 kids have been reported missing between May 2 and May 16, as Newburgh Heights Police Chief John Majoy warns that the disappearances have reached unprecedented levels in 2023.

Majoy, who serves as the board president of the Cleveland Missing nonprofit group, told Fox News:
"There's always peaks and valleys with missing persons, but this year it seems like an extraordinary year. For some reason, in 2023, we've seen a lot more than we normally see, which is troubling in part because we don't know what's going on with some of these kids, whether they're being trafficked or whether they're involved in gang activity or drugs."
Majoy noted that a majority of the cases are runaways, but he feared some of the teenagers could've been victims of predators, who he likened to "wolves in sheep's clothing."


Catherine Austin Fitts: You need a war strategy

Catherine Austin Fitts
Catherine Austin Fitts (CAF), Publisher of The Solari Report, financial expert and former Assistant Secretary of Housing (Bush 41 Admin.), says,
"You've got people actually trying to kill you. . . . You don't need an investment strategy, you need a war strategy because this is a war. . . . You cannot do business with criminals, in particular, criminals who are above the law and have sovereign immunity or the DOJ treats them like they have sovereign immunity. We had the Durham Report, and it came out and they announced, oops, we had no evidence (on President Trump) and we are not going to prosecute anybody. That is sovereign immunity. . . . The middle class is getting creamed, and at the root, we are watching the centralization of wealth using central bank mechanisms and it is a policy and a strategy. I left Washington years ago, and I was saying there is money disappearing from the federal government. I said if they keep doing this, they are going to have to depopulate or they are going to have to lower life expectancy or lower our standard of living. We have to deal with this, and I said I am not going to go along. You can kill people with a bioweapon (like the CV19 bioweapon injections), but you can also kill people with a pen. First, they killed people with a pen before we started with the pandemic."

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr revealed on Thursday that when his campaign uses the TeamKennedy email address to set up accounts on Instagram, they are automatically banned from Instagram for 180 days.

Kennedy Jr praised Twitter for allowing his campaign to have a voice, adding, "To silence a major political candidate is profoundly undemocratic. Social media is the modern equivalent of the town square. How can democracy function if only some candidates have access to it?"

In response, Twitter owner and CEO Elon Musk replied: "Would you like to do a Spaces discussion with me next week?"

27 kids missing in last two weeks - What the hell is happening in Cleveland?

Newburgh Heights police chief John Majoy

In the span of just two weeks, nearly 30 children have vanished in Cleveland
, sparking huge concern from a local police chief who said he hasn't seen anything like this in his 33-year career.

Newburgh Heights police chief John Majoy told reporters that as many as 27 children have been reported missing in the greater Cleveland area.
"It's a silent crime that happens right under our noses," he said.

"The problem is where are they? Where do they go? They can be in a drug house or farmed to prostitution or caught up in drug trafficking or gangs."
He called the number of missing children, whose ages range from 12 to 17, unprecedented when speaking to reporters.


Federal judge issues landmark decision in call for family court reform

Mikaela Haynes, 14, killed herself after a family court judge ruled she had to live with her father who had already admitted to molesting his oldest sister. Mikaela was a high honor student who adored animals, studied sign language so she could communicate with two elderly deaf neighbors and dreamed of becoming a pediatric surgeon specializing in facial deformities of children, hung herself from a tree.
In a landmark decision, a federal judge this week denied a court-appointed child advocate's motion to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit against her. The lawsuit asks the court to hold her accountable for the suicide of 14-year-old Mikaela Haynes.

Family court reform advocates say they are nearly in disbelief at the ruling.

"This is a huge victory and a promising sign in what is an exhausting fight to bring awareness to the ugly truth that court-appointed advocates who are supposed to protect children instead put them in danger," Evita Tolu, the attorney who won the unprecedented ruling, told The Epoch Times.

Mysterious death of acquaintance of 'Aussie Cossack' Boikov - Boikov is living at Russian consulate after skipping court

James Walters

James Walters, 42, was found dead on May 23 by police in Sydney's northern suburbs after being reported missing for 10 days.
A man who was a close associate of the ultra-nationalist pro-Putin supporter Simeon Boikov - known as the 'Aussie Cossack' - has been found dead by police.

Comment: For the legacy media 'ultra-nationalist' and 'far-right' are mostly used to smear people, rather than to be used as accurate descriptions, and they're particularly used against people with regards to issues like Russia's special operation in Ukraine, or vaccine mandates and lockdowns.

James Walters, 42, was found on May 23 by police in Sydney's northern suburbs, some 10 days after he was reported missing on May 13.

NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia police were satisfied the body was that of Mr Walters, who had last been seen in the north-west Sydney suburb of Chatswood.

'We had concerns for the man's welfare,' a police spokesperson said, adding officers had seen nothing to suggest the death was suspicious.

Comment: It's notable that, Boikov, an Australian citizen, is currently holed up in the Russian embassy. As for the death of his colleague, whether his death, his activism, and the relation to Boikov are merely coincidental, or are related to his death, remains to be seen.

When compared to other Western nations, it seems that there's is a rather vocal and visible group of Australians who have been featured in the national media over their support for Russia; less attention seems to be given to their denounciation of the West and its proxy war in Ukraine.
