Self-proclaimed “Karl Marx of the Alt-Right,” Richard Spencer, was reportedly punched in the face on Friday during a protest following Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Spencer was reportedly hit twice in the face after giving a speech.

“Someone ran up behind him and clocked him in the face. Somebody in a mask. Spencer kept talking,” a witness. “Then it happened again.”

“One of them was in the ear,” the witness noted. “He’s gonna have a big face tomorrow. Keep an eye on it.”

UPDATE: 7:30 EST – Video has emerged of Spencer being punched in the face by a protester.

Spencer has not been afraid to make questionable decisions in order to gain attention. In November, after President Trump won the election, Spencer did a nazi salute to celebrate while saying, “hail Trump, hail our people hail victory.”

 also expressed his hatred and bigotry after Trump won the primary and spoke in Cleveland during the RNC convention. Spencer called for the removal of “African-Americans, Hispanics and Jews” from the United States at a Ritz-Carlton bar.

Spencer was also one of many banned by Twitter earlier this year for his controversial racial tweets and ideology.

China Calls For Censorship—Forbids Media Coverage of Inauguration

China Calls For Censorship—Forbids Media Coverage of Inauguration

avatar

(ZeroHedge) While the US public and global markets will be transfixed by the events in Washington today, Trump’s emerging nemesis in the upcoming trade wars, China, has decided to avoid the event altogether. According to the FT, Beijing’s infamous censors have ordered media outlets to mute their reporting of Trump’s inauguration “as the Communist party continues to weigh its response to a new administration that has threatened to tear up the rule book of US-China relations.”

The FT notes that propaganda officials have ordered the press only to use reports on the ceremony written by central state media, according to several Chinese journalists.

“It is forbidden for websites to carry out live streaming or picture reports of the inauguration,” said the censorship instructions highlighted by the Financial Times.

Internet media outlets should not give the event top billing on their homepages, the instructions add, reminding them to “take care of news comments?.?.?.?and negative and harmful speech”. Similar orders are common ahead of big world news events but analysts said in this case they reflected uncertainty in Beijing over how to handle public perceptions of Mr Trump.

Quoted by the FT, Elyse Ribbons, an American who hosts a programme on Chinese state-run radio, said on Twitter on Thursday that she“wasn’t allowed to discuss Trump today on my radio show, he’s now an official sensitive topic”, adding “Chinese leadership still trying to figure him out (sigh).”

While China’s official diplomatic tone in recent weeks has been relatively subdued, in anticipation of whether Trump’s belligerent approach will carryover into his presidency, the local media has been far less contained. As a result, China’s tightly controlled media often portrays Washington as a hostile power attempting to curtail China’s rise. At the same time authorities are struggling to rein in increasingly nationalist voices on the internet.

“Trump is a very different kind of president than Obama. He has a less friendly attitude… he’s unpredictable,” said Zhan Jiang, a professor of international news at Beijing Foreign Studies University. “The government is still working out how to react to him, which is why in this case they are taking very close control of the media for this event.”

Meanwhile, according to early state media reports highlighted the ceremony’s expense, pricing it at more than $100m. The information office of the State Council, China’s cabinet, tweeted in English: “How much does #Trump’s #inauguration cost? The number must be staggering.”

Man Dies From Police Taser After Attacking Female Officer

Man Dies From Police Taser After Attacking Female Officer

A 55-year-old unknown man was killed Thursday morning after police discharged a taser at him during a confrontation in Philadelphia.

The incident occurred in Northern Philadelphia, after the man reportedly “grabbed a female officer by her hair and her neck while she was in her patrol vehicle” Commissioner Ross said, according to  Philly.com.

“A witness had told police that around 4:50 a.m. she saw the man jumping on a car stopped on 10th Street near Poplar Street and repeatedly screaming, ‘Help me Jesus!’ Police later determined the car—a red Chevrolet pickup truck—was registered to the man,” Ross said.

Police then responded to the situation and the man immediately approached the patrol car and grabbed the female officer by the hair and the neck.

While the officers fought to get him off of her, one officer discharged a taser at the man to stop the assault.

The man then collapsed. The officers believe that the man was on the drug naloxone, an administered drug usually used for heroin addicts as an antidote.

It is unclear if the man took heroin or any opioids earlier, but it may explain the fact that he reportedly freaked out, jumped on a car, and screamed “Help me Jesus!”

Medics responded and treated the man at the scene. They took him immediately to the Hospital, “where he was declared dead at around 5:46 a.m.,” police said.

The man died presumably from the shock of the taser, although the official cause of death has not been determined.

Hospital staff later reported the Taser prongs did not penetrate the man’s skin, but that he still may have experienced a shock from the device. Police have yet to identify the man.

Tasers are classified as a non-lethal weapon. However, there have been plenty of deaths from these devices. Tasers work to cause immobility of a target by muscle contraction. As a result, when a person is hit by a taser, he/she does face a significant having a cardiac event.

Truth Not Tasers has compiled a list of Americans who died after they were tasered since 1984. The data shows that a staggering 970 people have died as of 2016, as a result of being tasered.

The American Heart Association has even admitted that tasers can cause death.

Dr. Douglas Zipes, of Indiana University’s Krannert Institute of Cardiology, found that a discharged high shock from a taser “can cause cardiac electric capture and provoke cardiac arrest.”

It is notable that this instance, although a tragedy, was warranted by the police.

CNN Claims Its Credibility is Higher Than Ever After Being Caught Publishing ‘Fake News’

CNN Claims Its Credibility is Higher Than Ever After Being Caught Publishing ‘Fake News’

avatar

In an incredulous comment, CNN President Jeff Zucker told New York Magazine that the network’s “credibility is higher than ever.”

This comes after CNN released a non-vetted report on president-elect Donald Trump suggesting that the Russian government was blackmailing him for financial and personal reasons. That report is now known to be fake, and was allegedly created by an ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele, and then promoted by 4chan.

This resulted in Trump blasting CNN as “Fake News,” and shutting down one of their reporters when he questioned Trump.

Your organization is terrible… No… I’m not going to give you a question. You are FAKE NEWS!” Trump said.

Hold on, isn’t this the same CNN that has a habit of cutting its feed during confrontational interviews and blaming it on satellite issues?

Isn’t this the same network that tried to pass its own cameraman off as an anti-Trump protester, in order to shape the narrative for Hillary Clinton?

[RELATED: CNN EXPOSED PUSHING NARRATIVE USING OWN CAMERAMAN]

Isn’t this the same network that posted biased polls about Clinton?

The same network whose analyst—Donna Brazile—became the interim DNC chairperson, and then gave debate questions to the Clinton campaign ahead of the debate?

CNN’s credibility is also under high scrutiny by much of the public for its biased coverage and sensational reporting.

Zucker feels differently though, and is living in a fantasy world. It has been eight months since Trump has done an interview with CNN, and Zucker still seemed convinced that the next president would give in to the network once he realizes its impact.

“It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran and Damascus — and that’s CNN. The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake.”

However, it remains to be seen whether Trump will extend press access to CNN, or whether he will give more access to alternative media journalists and bloggers.

CNN was also named the “least trusted network among its viewers” earlier this month. According to a poll from Rasmussen Reports, when viewer were asked if they trust the political news they are getting from the mainstream media networks, 50 percent of Fox views, 43 percent of MSNBC viewers and just 33 percent of CNN viewers said they trust their political news.
