>“We do not forgive,” a group of anti-fascists declared while announcing a new project to identify every attendee of the infamous rally. “We do not forget.”

The hundreds of right-wing extremists and fascists who invaded Charlottesville, Virginia, five years ago this week were unashamed and proud, invigorated by the ascendance of then-President Donald Trump, who had campaigned with open bigotry — a call for a Muslim ban, calling Mexicans “rapists” — and still won the election. Some were veteran white supremacists, belonging to older groups like the KKK, League of the South, or the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement. But others were younger keyboard warriors who felt they had helped meme Trump into the White House, and who saw the “Unite the Right” gathering in Charlottesville as a coming out party for the so-called “alt-right,” an opportunity to step out from behind their avatars for an IRL show of force.

But after they terrorized the city for two days, and stories of their cruelty spread — a torch march across the University of Virginia campus chanting “Jews will not replace us,” death threats against local synagogues, the brutal beating of a Black counterprotester, and driving a car through a crowd of anti-fascists — many Unite the Right attendees found themselves pariahs when they got home.

They were arrested, lost their jobs, kicked out of school and shunned by their local communities. Later, a lawsuit would drive many of the rally’s organizers into financial ruin, and some of the groups involved, such as Identity Evropa, Traditionalist Workers Party and Vanguard America, disbanded.

This was due in large part to the work of anonymous anti-fascist researchers who pored over photos and video footage from Charlottesville, compiling evidence to identify the attendees.

Friday marks the five-year anniversary of Unite the Right, and some of those same anti-fascists have a message for all the white supremacists who went to Charlottesville in 2017 and haven’t yet been identified: We will find you.

A coalition calling itself Ignite The Right launched a website this week featuring an extensive database of every single white supremacist who has allegedly been identified as attending the Charlottesville rally. It also includes photos of many attendees whose names, five years later, remain unknown.

“Antifascists are continuing to work towards exposing every single person who participated,” the Ignite The Right website declares. “We do not forgive. We do not forget.”

“This project is dedicated to Heather Heyer and all the victims of racism,” it says, referring to the 32-year-old who died after a man drove his vehicle into a crowd of counterprotesters.

Ignite The Right is a project that involves over a dozen anti-fascist groups and individuals, many of whom have an established track record of positively identifying white nationalists, and whose work has been verified by media outlets, including HuffPost. They include the Anonymous Comrades Collective, which unmasked one of the country’s most notorious online neo-Nazis, as well a white supremacist elementary school teacher. Other groups in the Ignite The Right coalition include Dixie Tears Streaming Service, @SalishCoastA, @PacAntifa, @SunlightAFA and @BonnotGalaxy.

“As of this writing, we have 277 entries in our database but it’s growing quickly as more tips come in. 67 of the entries, we don’t know who they are yet,” one of the researchers, who asked to remain anonymous to protect themselves from reprisals, told HuffPost on Wednesday. “We expect this database to grow to over 500 as we start working on random faces from footage.”
The database of Unite the Right attendees is modeled, in part, after a database created by “Sedition Hunters,” online sleuths who expose the identities of those who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Each yet-to-be identified white supremacist is assigned a nickname based on their appearance, like #WhiteHardHatUTR or #MysteryGoateeUTR. Photos of them at the rally are placed alongside descriptions of the extremist groups to which they likely belonged, or actions they took at the rally.

The entry for #RedBeardUTR, for example, includes images from video footage of the still-unidentified man beating a Black counterprotester, Deandre Harris, inside a parking garage.

Ignite The Right’s members are counting on the public to send them information that might help identify these white supremacists.

“Since launching the site this morning, we have received over a dozen tips from the public,” the researcher said. “We expect there to be frequent updates to the site over time.”

The researcher added that they believe “one of the yet-to-be-identified attendees were also in attendance at the January 6th insurrection.”

Unlike the Sedition Hunters, who have exposed many Jan. 6 insurrectionists, Ignite The Right does not and will not cooperate with law enforcement — upholding a long-standing tenet of anti-fascist activism.

Ignite The Right also promises to be unsparing in whom it chooses to identify. Contrary to Trump’s infamous declaration in the days after the 2017 rally, there were no “very fine people” who participated.
“One of the great canards surrounding Unite the Right is that many ‘very fine people’ were somehow tricked into attending under the belief that this was really just a rally in opposition to the removal of Confederate monuments,” the Ignite The Right website states. “Attendees travelled thousands of miles, booked flights and hotels, and made informed decisions to attend the rally organized by well-known fascists.”

The anti-fascists also promise to never stop hunting, no matter how long it takes.

“We don’t care if you’re 101,” the researcher said. “We want you to face consequences. Even if it takes us 30 years to find you.”
This is America, we fuck dwarves in the ass.

The Phoenix Police Department announced Wednesday it had dismantled a drug trafficking organization that had been smuggling narcotics over the Arizona-Mexico border.

Last year, the agency opened an investigation into an international trafficking network allegedly responsible for transporting large amounts of fentanyl and methamphetamine into the Phoenix area. The drugs were then getting distributed locally and nationally to other locations.

I think he was coming by and posting strings of these about as often under Trump. Drug law enforcement kinda just keeps doing it's thing regardless of who is in charge.

The DOJ has charged four current and former Louisville police officers, sources told VICE News: Brett Hankison, Joshua Jaynes, Kelly Hanna Goodlett, and Kyle Meany.


The FBI has arrested current and former Louisville Metro Police officers who were somehow involved in the deadly raid that killed 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, according to multiple sources.

The three officers, who were taken into custody Thursday morning, include former detectives Brett Hankison and Joshua Jaynes, as well as Sgt. Kyle Meany. Detective Kelly Hanna Goodlett was not arrested but has been charged.

The Department of Justice confirmed the charges in a press conference Thursday morning during which U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland elaborated on the charges. They include two counts of deprivation of civil rights against Hankison for firing 10 shots through a window and glass door along the side of Taylor’s apartment.

The three other officers—Jaynes, Goodlett, and Meany—have been charged with conspiracy for violating Taylor’s Fourth Amendment rights due to their roles in drafting and submitting a false affidavit used to secure a search warrant for Taylor’s residence in a drug-related investigation.

No officers have been directly charged with Taylor’s death, including the officer who shot her, Myles Cosgrove, although he was fired 9 months after the deadly raid.

“Breonna Taylor should be alive today,” Garland said Thursday.

Good, now lets see the FBI arrest the cop who blatantly murdered Danial Shaver, all of which was captured on video/audio.

Unfortunately the cop already got tried and found not guilty, somehow.

His parents ARE suing the city though.

Our pirates bros the brits declares drought in parts of England amid heatwave

Britain officially declared a drought in parts of England on Friday as households faced new water usage restrictions during a period of prolonged hot and dry weather that has already severely tested the
nation’s infrastructure.

Parts of southern, central and eastern England are now in drought status, meaning that water companies will step up efforts to manage the impact of dry weather on farmers and the environment, the Environment Agency said in a statement.

“All water companies have reassured us that essential supplies are still safe, and we have made it clear it is their duty to maintain those supplies,” Water Minister Steve Double said, following a meeting of the National Drought Group.

“We are better prepared than ever before for periods of dry weather, but we will continue to closely monitor the situation, including impacts on farmers and the environment, and take further action as needed.”

Putin did it, btw.
what fucking cranes
>Parts of southern, central and eastern England are now in drought status

Google explained that the reason for the removal of the YouTube channel of the Russian blogger Goblin (Dmitry Puchkov) was a violation of the company's policy on hate speech, the Telegram channel "RBC" reported.

It is clarified that Google has removed content from Puchkov's channel, which, as the company noted, "denies, downplays or trivializes well-documented events of violence," including military actions in Ukraine. After that, the blogger was issued a warning (strike).

"This was the third strike of the channel in 90 days, therefore, in accordance with our three warnings policy, Dmitry Puchkov's channel was deleted," RBC quotes a message from Google.

The blogger himself informed about the removal of the channel on Thursday evening, August 4th, by posting a screenshot in his Telegram channel with a notification from the administration of the service, which stated a violation of the rules of the YouTube community.

Later, Puchkov said that "everyone who does not support the Ukrainian Nazis is being removed from the Internet site," and Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev promised to "take revenge" for what happened.


P.S. I also liked Dmitry Puchkov's YouTube channel, but it's worth admitting that besides the Nazis, he often makes fun of Western politicians and even Quentin Tarantino, calling them idiots. He received 3 strikes in 90 days because of a video about Stepan Bandera - just ass of most Ukrainian Nazis caught fire. Now he will perform on rutube and in "in contact (VK)". Maybe it's even better.

FBI agents who searched former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home Monday removed 11 sets of classified documents, including some marked as top secret and meant to be only available in special government facilities, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation agents took around 20 boxes of items, binders of photos, a handwritten note and the executive grant of clemency for Mr. Trump’s ally Roger Stone, a list of items removed from the property shows. Also included in the list was information about the “President of France,” according to the three-page list. The list is contained in a seven-page document that also includes the warrant to search the premises which was granted by a federal magistrate judge in Florida.

>incomprehensible gibberish
Well yeah, if that were true, then Conservapedia would say ridiculous things like this:
>E=mc2 asserts that the energy (E) in an unmoving particle is equal to the square of the speed of light (c2) times the mass (m) of that particle.[1] The complete form, when applied to moving objects, is E2=(mc2)2+(pc)2, where p represents momentum,[2] It is a statement that purports to relate all matter to energy. In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism), and numerous attempts to derive E=mc2 from first principles have failed.[3] Political pressure, however, has since made it impossible for anyone pursuing an academic career in science to even question the validity of this nonsensical equation. Simply put, E=mc2 is liberal claptrap.
Wait, that actually is what Conservapedia says (https://www.conservapedia.com/E=mc%C2%B2). Nevermind, you're right anon.
anon, you just admitted you're an illiterate retard.

The US economy has now regained all jobs lost during the pandemic, after a blowout July jobs report that showed a gain of 528,000 jobs, according to data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The massive monthly gain was more than double the 250,000 that economists were expecting, according to Refinitiv.
The unemployment rate ticked down to 3.5% after holding at 3.6% for the past four months. The July jobless rate matched the half-century low last seen in February 2020.
Friday's employment snapshot marks the 19th consecutive month of job growth and is the highest monthly gain since the economy added 714,000 jobs in February. July's job totals outpace the average monthly gain of 388,000 jobs of the past four months, BLS data shows.

You mean the boogaloo false flags
I've always thought that the government publishing and chest thumping these numbers felt false and misleading.
It seems odd that if you have to empty a position that bringing it back counts as "growth!"
I just like the granularity of distinguishing between filling a position that was empty vs creating a position that didn't previously exist.

Remember our toilet scoop in Axios AM earlier this year? Maggie Haberman's forthcoming book about former President Trump will report that White House residence staff periodically found wads of paper clogging a toilet — and believed the former president, a notorious destroyer of Oval Office documents, was the flusher.

Why it matters: Destroying records that should be preserved is potentially illegal.

Trump denied it and called Haberman, whose New York Times coverage he follows compulsively, a "maggot."

Well, it turns out there are photos. And here they are, published for the first time.

Haberman — who obtained the photos recently — shared them with us ahead of the Oct. 4 publication of her book, "Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America."

A Trump White House source tells her the photo on the left shows a commode in the White House.
The photo on the right is from an overseas trip, according to the source.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared victory in the battle against the novel coronavirus, ordering a lifting of maximum anti-epidemic measures imposed in May, state media said on Thursday. North Korea has not revealed how many confirmed infections of the virus it has found, but since July 29 it has reported no new suspected cases with what international aid organizations say are limited testing capabilities.
North Korea's official death rate of 74 people is an "unprecedented miracle" compared to other countries, KCNA reported, citing another official.
okay thanks
>compared to other countries
its an "unprecedented miracle" when gunshot victims and motorcycle fatalities arent reported to have died from covid
In a biological sense the DPRK has little to none of those strains however the symptoms overlap with other kinds of diseases.

On July 26, a 22-year-old woman in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, died after suffering from complications caused by long working hours.

On July 9, the woman, named Huihui, who worked in the operations department at a media company, was sent to ICU after she suddenly stopped breathing. After 17 days in hospital, Huihui passed away.

Huihui had been staying up and working until 5am for 5 days in a row. By the time she arrived at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, she had stopped breathing.

According to doctors, Huihui was unconscious and her whole body had turned purple. She was diagnosed with myocarditis.

Apparently it's such a problem in China that fresh graduates have said 'fuck it' to work life in general.
So this is the guy that your talking about having the myocarditis. The only way you could know that is I have it now, is because somebody observed me stashing a needle for future use, and then they went and infected it with bacteria, and then later on leaked the secret amongst their peers and then onto the internet.. and now onto here. I use a rig almost 2 times but that proved to be too many. This myocarditis is clearly caused by a deliberate planning from an unknown party, maybe the guy in the Porsche. IDK, well played though I can definitely feel an obstruction in my heart. I suppose now since I know it can't be cured I may as well admit. You, you did this for your own fun - it wasn't necessary... No dire need to eliminate me. Ive always only destroyed myself, I was going to die soon one way or another. In this fact, you have merely seized the initiative by assisting in my self eradication covertly. Not because it was needed, but because you wanted to - God damnit this sucks. I handed you the bullets and you shot me right in the heart and I let you do it. Alas, so long goes the epic failure that I was... for but a blip in the spand existence.....
And for the record, you idiots call me a pussy - but you never called me out. I placed myself many times within reasonable reach of my adversaries whilst not losing the initiative myself. And when did you ever come call me out? Never. I would've faded any line up toe to toe, with no weapons involved, anytime. I regret not stealing off on one of you hoes or just killing you. Now I'm going to die a slow painful death. With no points under my belt. Congrats. Another one bites the dust.
You do realise that this is common in asiatic culture as in geography wise right?

A Texas man who joined the US Capitol riot armed with a holstered pistol and threatened his own children to keep quiet about his role has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.

Guy Reffitt, 49, was found guilty in March on five felony counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding and interfering with police in a riot.

His sentence is the longest imposed on any of the US Capitol rioters.

Nearly 900 people have been charged in the 6 January 2021 raid on Congress.

Reffitt did not actually enter the Capitol with the horde of Trump supporters who breached the complex as lawmakers met to certify Joe Biden's win in the November 2020 presidential election.

He retreated after an officer pepper sprayed him in the face, but video evidence showed Reffitt egging on the crowd and leading other rioters up a set of stairs outside the building.

Multiple videos Reffitt took on and after 6 January, in which he discussed planning and bragged about participating in the riot, were used in evidence against him.

>A handful of Republican officials, as well as conservative outlets like Fox News, seem to be reading from near-identical scripts to respond to the search warrant executed at Mar-a-Lago earlier this week


A number of talking points are being echoed in far-right groups following news that Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home was visited by FBI agents executing a federal search warrant on Monday.

Some Republican officials, as well as conservative outlets like Fox News, are offering up near-identical descriptions of the search, using phrases like "banana republic" to describe the state of the U.S. and "Department of Injustice" to describe the DOJ, despite the fact that the search warrant was legally authorized.

Below, a few of the phrases that have been swirling through far-right circles — and how they aim to baselessly discredit the federal investigation and outrage Americans.

> Banana Republic

Many Trump loyalists have described the search of Mar-a-Lago as being indicative of a "banana republic," a term used to describe a politically unstable country run by despots.

The FBI executed a search warrant on Monday at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, the former President confirmed to CNN.

Trump declined to say why the FBI agents were at Mar-a-Lago, but the former President said the raid was unannounced and “they even broke into my safe.”

“My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” he said in a statement.

Trump was not in Florida at the time of the raid.

The raid began early Monday morning and law enforcement personnel appeared to be focused on the area of the club where Trump’s offices and personal quarters are, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The Justice Department declined to comment, as did the White House. A White House official said it was not notified about the raid.

The Russian war criminal, infamously known for her slaughtering of civilians and wearing a Ukrainian uniform to stage false flags, was in the lead car of this convoy as it was taken out by a DM-22.


An infamous pro-Russian fighter from Donetsk died in Ukrainian action, Russian forces reported Wednesday. Olga Kachur, also known as Korsa, was the commander of the 'Grad' MRLS division when she died in combat.

Korsa was a member of the Horlivka police until she defected to the Russian side in 2014. She then joined the pro-Russian side and began working against Ukrainian authorities. Her death was also confirmed by the Strategic Communications Department of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to The New Voice Of Ukraine report, Korsa often disguised herself as a member of the Armed Forces of Ukraine while committing war crimes in order to discredit the Ukrainian army. In her interviews, Korsa allegedly admitted that she enjoyed killing Ukrainians.

"(She was) guilty of the shelling of the cities of Donbas and the deaths of civilians. In Ukraine, she was sentenced to 12 years in prison in absentia,” according to Ukrainian journalist Denis Kazansky. Korsa had since been hiding in the Russian-occupied parts of the Donetsk region. She was declared "wanted" by the Ukrainian authorities.

An earlier report had mentioned how she commanded an artillery division of the illegal armed group "Golden Eagle 3rd Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade" in Donbas, and took up arms against the Ukrainian forces. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Korsa's actions with "Grad" MLR systems near Ilovaisk, Debaltseve, Vuhlehirsk, Marynivka, and Avdiyivka in the Donetsk region had resulted in mass casualties.

Yes, the Ukrainians really wanted her dead.
You know Republicans are seething over this.
Every Russian who is actively attacking, by own choice, deserves death. Terrorists must never win.


WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials believe Russia is working to fabricate evidence concerning last week’s deadly strike on prison housing prisoners of war in a separatist region of eastern Ukraine.

U.S. intelligence officials have determined that Russia is looking to plant false evidence to make it appear that Ukrainian forces were responsible for the July 29 attack on Olenivka Prison that left 53 dead and wounded dozens more, a U.S. official familiar with the intelligence finding told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Russia has claimed that Ukraine’s military used U.S.-supplied rocket launchers to strike the prison in Olenivka, a settlement controlled by the Moscow-backed Donetsk People’s Republic.

The Ukrainian military denied making any rocket or artillery strikes in Olenivka. The intelligence arm of the Ukrainian defense ministry claimed in a statement Wednesday to have evidence that local Kremlin-backed separatists colluded with the Russian FSB, the KGB’s main successor agency, and mercenary group Wagner to mine the barrack before “using a flammable substance, which led to the rapid spread of fire in the room.”

The official, who was not authorized to comment publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the classified intelligence — which was recently downgraded — shows that Russian officials might even plant ammunition from medium-ranged High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS, as evidence that the systems provided by the U.S. to Ukraine were used in the attack.

Russia is expected to take the action as it anticipates independent investigators and journalists eventually getting access to Olenivka, the official added.

Ukraine has effectively used HIMARS launchers, which fire medium-range rockets and can be quickly moved before Russia can target them with return fire, and have been seeking more launchers from the United States.

But the Russians are the Nazis this time.
They can't keep getting away with it.
I do. Some of the developers on my team are from Kyiv. Moreso, I just want Russia to suffer and fail. Anything that hurts Russia is a good thing. Watching them struggle to make progress against a bunch of part timers, newbies, and farmers fills me with joy, especially after projecting this image of being a world military power rivaling the US and China. It's like watching the short guy that loves to brag and talk shit get slapped and start crying.
I do because it's hilarious to see the mythos of the Russian army the shattered before our eyes.
For all of their chest puffing and reputation as a force to be reckoned with, it seems that the only thing they really have are nuclear weapons. Without nukes, they'd be easily toppled.
