Elected United States President Donald Trump promised aid to Mexico as the country recovers from a series of earthquakes. This compassionate gesture comes in spite on Enrique Pena Nieto's government in Mexico reneging on a promise to deliver disaster relief aid and assistance to Texas following hurricane related flooding, because the first earthquake following that promise made keeping it inconvenient.
Meanwhile civil disorder in Saint Louis continues as terrorists escalate their attacks on local, predominately minority owned businesses following a former police officer's murder acquittal in the shooting death of a heroin dealer. Aside from the single unsolved casino robbery, the terrorist's assault on the city continues to be split into "peaceful" obstruction of vehicular traffic on major thoroughfares during daylight hours and vandalism of commercial property at night.
One of the many grievances being aired by the terrorists crying injustice is that "No one wants to bring good any jobs to the city."
Mining difficulty on the Bitcoin network skyrocketed nearly twenty percentage points to 1103400932964.29248047 from 922724699725.96276855 to a new all time high.
While mining difficulty sits at an all time high, the price of Bitcoin reported by fiat/Bitcoin interfaces is sitting roughly twenty percent below the most recent all time high established near the beginning of this month. The United States dollar recovered a small bit of ground against Bitcoin when the racist government of the People's Republic of China decided to ban trading on their local fiat/Bitcoin interfaces. This move by the Chicoms was followed by the a constant stream of "Bitcoin is valueless" editorials in the legacy USian "financial" fake news press.
The failed state of Illinois has passed a law mandating that local schools must now supply free "feminine hygiene products" in bathrooms beginning January 1st, 2018. Apparently none of the 32% personal income tax increase can be spared to fund this mandate, as the bulk of it is going to municipal pensions in Chicago rather than any sort of service.
Escalating civil disorder has gripped downtown Saint Louis after a former police officer was acquitted of murder in the December 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith which followed a high speed chase. Interest the case was drummed up by the local Fake News media and activist clergy members aligned with Black Lives Matter following the outrage they were able to bake in Ferguson, Missouri. Many local businesses have released their employees evacuate the city while local schools have dismissed classes early in order to allow their students to serve as footsoldiers in the disorder of Pantsuit making.
The accused officer was acquitted in a bench trial where the Judge concurred with the initial investigation of the shooting, that the evidence to justify a murder conviction was not there.
At present masses of protesters have obstructed a number of surface streets. It is probable that police lines containing the protesters may be breeched breached in time to conveniently allow the protesters to obscure Interstate 64 and other freeways just in time for the evening commute. The dominant sentiment among locals questioned about their feeling on the emergent disorder is "Really, again?"
Following last month's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia at the hands of antifa terrorists another leftist group is escalating its nuisance presence. A group of neo-Maoist cultural revolutionaries advocating for an agenda authored by a group calling itself "the Black Student Alliance" but which the neo-Moaists calling themselves "the Black Student Alliance" insist was not actually them, vandalized a statute of third United States President and University of Virginia founder Thomas Jefferson.
The unnamed neo-Maoists <sarcasm>who surely weren't the named nao-Maoists</sarcasm> covered the statue in a black shroud and placed signs alleging the dead polymath is "racist" and "rapist" [sic]. Today's president of the university founded by Jefferson, a different kind of cultural Marxist calling itself Teresa A. Sullivan offered a number of utterances which included:
I strongly disagree with the protestors’ decision to cover the Jefferson statue. I also recognize the rights of those present at the protest to express their emotions and opinions regarding the recent horrific events that occurred on our Grounds and in Charlottesville…
however, he was also a slave owner… The University1 has acknowledged its controversial history and we continue to learn from it through open dialogue and civil discourse.
