Amanda Staveley offered a whopping £250m or $347,367,500 to buy the Newcastle United soccer club. Rumors that the offer had been rejected has been refuted by Staveley’s spokesperson.

Her PCP Capital Partners confirmed on Thursday their offer had not been rescinded and they still believe a deal can be made with Mike Ashley to take ownership. On Tuesday it was believed the deal was off the table after a source close to Ashley said, "It is only right to let the fans know there is no deal on the table or even under discussion with Amanda Staveley and PCP."

Haiti bumped

In another derisive move the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) removed Haiti from a list of countries whose citizens are permitted to apply for low-skilled work visas. Just last week the country was referred to as a shithole country by the commander in chief of the US military.

Democrats joined a chorus of others proclaiming Trump as a racist and an exponent of white supremacy. Experts in the field cite this decision as evidence of his wrath against many citizens of the country.

WUT? WORD! TRUMP! LOCK HIM UP! TRUMP! LIAR! TRUMP! A**HOLE! TRUMP! BIGOT! TRUMP! RACIST! TRUMP! CRUEL! TRUMP! DECEITFUL! TRUMP! MISOGYNIST! TRUMP! Ghandi opined, “You should not cooperate with evil.”

WOW! I do feel a bit better, since I finally blurted out my true impressions of King Trump; when I think that he cannot further compromise America’s status, as a democratic nation of laws and values, with foreign countries and American citizens, he shocks sensibilities and is more destructive than a massive apocalyptic event. He continues to repeat four refrains: 1: “Believe me! Believe me!” 2: “I NEVER said that, never, not me.” 3. “The press is out to get me!” and 4. “Let’s change the libel laws!”

Introducing the President of the United States and the Women he Abused

Trump Abuse

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

We all held Barack Obama to a very high standard as we watched him run and win the presidency of the United States twice. Never was there an allegation that made us consider whether he was honorable  enough for the  high office. He did and the quality of person he has proved to be has left most people proud to have had the opportunity to vote for him.

Donald Trump was sworn in nearly a year ago, and before he got as far as the inauguration he had to settle a New York lawsuit. Trump University who the state of New York says didn't’t met the qualifications to be called a University was shut down by the state. The class action suit was settled for $25 million. He allegedly fraudulently took advantage of people attempting to learn more about the real estate business, it wasn't’t his first time in court.

This guy’s morality has always been in question.

US Military Personal Shoots Civilian Driver: Military says Release Unauthorzed

US Military Firing on Civilian
Scribe: N. Tru Bass
 
 
We all remember the 2008, Collateral Murder, a video distributed by WikiLeaks in Iraq showing an American helicopter demanding permission to shoot unarmed journalist on the ground below. The first frame of the video has a quote from George Orwell that says, “Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.” In time of war most Americans understand that laws and norms are rescinded. But, most expect for soldiers to do the right thing, the moral thing.

US Government Targeting Black Groups before a Crime

Police Shooting down Unarmed Black Men

Op/Ed

Ever heard of BIE? Ever heard of the KKK? In reverse order I will explain both these acronyms and their mission. The KKK is one of many American terrorist organizations that sprung up in 1865, to terrorize newly freed slaves, with death and gore. Over the past 153 years not much has changed. Many of the klansmen then represented law enforcement, family doctors and lawyers and otherwise respectful people. However there is a new threat.

BIE, or Black Identity Extremists likely Motivated to Target Law Enforcement Officers is the new threat. Believe it or not tax dollars are being tossed at this faux-COINTELPRO initiative in anticipation of a crime. Before I go deeper into the BIE, I will first revisit the COINTELPRO a program directed by J. Edgar Hoover.

Officials close to the White House have announced the end of a humanitarian program that has temporary protected Salvadorans who who have worked and live in the United States. Just weeks ago more than 45,000 Haitians have been denied protections. Hondurans and Nicaraguans are expected to be next up.

El Salvador, employees and advocates have all chimed in to speak to the importance of extending the program that has been extended since 2001. California, Virginia and along with other states will be impacted by the decision to undermine a successful federal program. One nationally respected news organization quoted on of the Salvadorans who would be challenged by the renege said, “We had hope that if we worked hard, paid our taxes and didn’t get in trouble we would be allowed to stay.”

Bannon and Trump a Crack has developed in the Earth

Bannon and Trump

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thetinkering.com

The White House has imposed a ban on personal communication devices after major detachment with Trumps former associate and reputed racist Steve Bannon. Former White House strategist Bannon has proved during the Alabama congressional race that his power are greater than the sitting presidents. However, there was still some agreement of major points between the two behaviorally supremacist men.

Bannon said about Mrs. Trump, she’s, “dumb as a brick.” He continued about Donal Jr.’s infamous meeting with Russians officials, saying there was 0% chance that he didn’t walk the Russians upstairs to his fathers office. He then refered to the sitting president an “accommondationist.” In the same National monthly publication, the former Trump ally said the president had lost a step and that he was like “an 11-year-old child.”

Op/Ed

 

On New Year’s day North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un assured the world the nuclear button was on his desk. On Tuesday, the sitting president of the US said via social media, [North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!{sic}]

New York Airports shut down due to computer Glitch

International Travelers

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

New York area airports were shutdown for two hours on Monday evening due to computer issues. The airports international travelers were delayed due to US Customs and Border Patrol processing system failed between 7:30=9:30pm and affected La Guardia, Newark and JFK airports.

A similar glitch was reminiscent of an outage early last year on 2 January 2017, which stranded international travelers for four hours as they tried to enter the country. Officials believe the disruption was not an exploited vulnerability.
