A 12-year-old UK boy has registered an IQ of 162, locking him in at the top 2% of the most intelligent people worldwide.  In comparison, Albert Einstein, Bill Gates and Prof. Stephen Hawking all have an IQs of 160. 

When his school attempted to advance him to a higher grade his mother objected saying, “He’s still just a little boy doing normal childhood stuff. While he reads the New Scientist and the Sky at Night magazines, he still plays with his dog, watches the Disney Channel and reads comics.

Ramarni Wilfred has joined the prestigious organization of Geniuses, Mensa.  Chief Executive John Stevenage said of the young man, “Anyone who registers an IQ score which places them in the top two per cent of the population has done remarkably well. The score Ramarni achieved therefore is very good and shows he has great potential.”

What’s happening with confederate idols around the country now that Charlottesville has proven these images can have deadly consequences. 

The White house said, "This week it's Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson's coming down," Mr. Trump said during a visit to Trump Tower in New York. "I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?"

American’s in general are saying Statues of Roger B. Taney, General Stonewall Jackson and General Robert E. Lee are relics of a by gone era.   Part of an egregious history that should not be celebrated publicly.

Op/ED

 

Citizen of Venezuela – Results of its recent national election has allegedly been manipulated.   Antonio Mugica, of London-based Smartmatic, the company that has provided technology for the Venezuelan elections said it detected an inflated turnout figure. 

Even with evidence of collusion with the Russian government, Donald Trump said of the Venezuelan election, that the Venezuelan government had turned into a de facto dictatorship.   The anomie US President even called the south American governments election a “Sham Election.”  And the American people know that the 2016 US Presidential election was as bogus as the World Trade Center’s destruction in 2001.
