The Anarchy in Seattle Would be Funny if it Weren’t so Tragic > The Clowns are Running the Circus
On Sunday night, a second shooting occurred in Seattle’s so-called “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” dubbed “CHAZ” or “CHOP,” that was captured via livestream by Twitch user Shawn Whiting.
In footage of the aftermath of the shooting, a member of CHAZ “security” is seen stealing Whiting’s phone and demanding he “delete” the damning footage.
Following the ring of gunfire, folks in CHAZ who’ve reached safety call the area a “war zone.”
Whiting suggests the shooting, the second in just two days (the Saturday shooting included at least one fatality), will be the “end of CHOP.”
“This is kind of a nightmare,” the Twitch user says aloud.
Earlier this month, far-left protesters including Antifa and Black Lives Matter supporters commandeered six blocks of property, including the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct, which has since been abandoned.
At one point during the stream, Whiting is questioned by a “security” member of CHAZ and told to delete the footage. Whiting suggests he has permission to live-stream, directing the man to a person named “James Madison.”
“Give me that f***ing phone, man,” the man tells Whiting. “What the f*** are you doing? … Hey, hey! Delete that s***! Delete that f***ing s***!”
Wow, the young Ali certainly has his father’s fire!
In a recent interview, boxing icon Muhammad Ali’s son insisted that his father would have thought the Black Lives Matter movement is filled with “a bunch of devils.”
In the interview published by the New York Post, Muhamad Ali, Jr., said his father would not be a fan of BLM.
“My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said, ‘all lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree (with BLM),” he insisted.
Ali also called the BLM movement a “racist” scheme.
“I think it’s racist,” Ali said. “It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone – he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is.
“It’s a racial statement,” Ali added. “It’s pitting black people against everyone else. It starts racial things to happen. I hate that.
Ali also praised President Donald Trump and even said he thinks his pugilist dad would have liked Trump.
“I think Trump’s a good president. My father would have supported him. Trump’s not a racist, he’s for all the people. Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody,” he said. “These [Democrat politicians] saying Black Lives Matter, who the hell are you to say that? You’re not even black.”
Finally, Ali slammed the Democrat Party.
“Democrats don’t give a shit about anybody. Hillary Clinton doesn’t give a shit; she’s trying not to get locked up,” Ali concluded. “Trump is much better than Clinton and Obama. … The only one to do what he said he would do is Donald Trump.”

The Federal Reserve’s move into the next phase of its corporate bond buying is generating renewed concerns over potential asset bubbles.
In the latest leg of its effort to keep markets functioning, the central bank said last week it will expand its purchases of exchange-traded funds into individual issuance of company debt.
While the initial announcement of the program provided a major lift to Wall Street, there now are worries that the risk-on sentiment could be getting carried away.
“The Fed’s shock-and-awe campaign worked amazingly well,” Yardeni Research founder Ed Yardeni said in his daily market note Monday. “This raises the question of whether Fed really needs to do much more.”
The worries are that the market has now gone too far as interest rates linger around record lows and issuers count on perpetual Fed support should buyer appetite wane.

The Bermuda Triangle – a torrid stretch of ocean where aircrafts and ships mysteriously disappear – has perplexed the world for centuries, but Siberian sinkholes could offer an explanation to the enigma, according to scientists.
The triangle is among the most heavily travelled shipping lanes in the world, with vessels frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean islands. Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or even some kind of colossal sea monster, but scientists think the equally mysterious Siberian sinkholes could be linked.
The three craters – one in Taymyr peninsula and two in Yamal – are believed to have been caused by huge underground gas explosions.
Known to locals as the “end of the world,” the massive craters sparked endless theories about how they got there, but scientists from the Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum-Gas Geology and Geophysics, in Novosibirsk, believe that they are the result of large underground gas explosions.
Igor Yeltsov, the Trofimuk Institute’s deputy head, said there was a theory that the Bermuda Triangle is caused by gas hydrates, which in turn caused “an extremely turbulent atmosphere.”
“It happens in an avalanche-like way, like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas.
“That makes the ocean heat up, and ships sink in waters which are infused with huge amounts of gas.
“This leads to the air becoming supersaturated with methane, creating an extremely turbulent atmosphere, leading to aircraft crashes.”
Reporting the claims, the journal dubbed the craters “a distant relative of the Bermuda Triangle.”
