Daily Stormer Website Goes Dark Amid Chaos

The website for the Daily Stormer, the white supremacist, neo-Nazi and antisemitic racist group, has lost access to a critical piece of web infrastructure that allows the general public to access its hate propaganda easily.

This infrastructure ensures the Stormer, the most read hate site in the world, attracts and maintains website readers and protects it from malicious attacks. But in a hectic 24 hours, Andrew Anglin, the website’s founder, took to Gab.com on Tuesday and told his readers ...

Damon Lindelof gives his first deep-dive interview for HBO's Watchmen

Robert Redford has been president for 28 years. Cell phones and the internet are outlawed. Fossil fuels are a thing of the past. Costumed heroes were popular, then banned. Police wear masks to protect their identities and cannot use their guns without a dispatcher unlocking them first. Reparations were issued for racial injustice, and our country remains ever divided.

Why Jeffrey Epstein loved evolutionary psychology

When not abusing adolescent girls, Jeffrey Epstein enjoyed the company of powerful men. He cultivated relationships with businessmen and politicians like Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, but he also patronized influential scientists with prestigious academic positions whose company increased his own social capital. Scientists deemed brilliant by Epstein often returned the favor. Simple flattery of a wealthy man may explain why the neuroscientist and Nobel winner Richard Axel described Epstein to ...

Bernie Sanders Proposes Reparations—for Defrauded Homeowners

New Loch Ness monster video may just confirm giant eel theory

In early September, researchers who performed a DNA analysis on the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland announced that the Loch Ness monster is probably just a very, very large eel. Now, it seems that a video, taken a few days prior to the report’s release, adds some credence to that theory.

President Trump said late Wednesday the notice would come from the Environmental Protection Agency. He said waste, specifically used needles, in storm sewers is contributing to ocean pollution.

Israel’s election results show Netanyahu is in serious trouble

The September Israeli election results are in — and it’s still not clear who the country’s next prime minister will be. But the results are the biggest threat to incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hold on power since he took office in 2009.

With over 90 percent of the vote now counted, the centrist Blue and White party looks to have won the largest number of seats in Israel’s parliament, called the Knesset — 32 out of a total of 120. Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud came ...

Bolton unloads on Trump’s foreign policy behind closed doors

John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s fired national security adviser, harshly criticized Trump’s foreign policy on Wednesday at a private lunch, saying that inviting the Taliban to Camp David sent a “terrible signal” and that it was “disrespectful” to the victims of 9/11 because the Taliban had harbored al Qaeda.

Bolton also said that any negotiations with North Korea and Iran were “doomed to failure,” according to two attendees.

California family find mountain lion lounging in their bathroom

In the photo, the lounging mountain lion looks almost shocked, as if caught mid-exclamation while yelling, “Get out!” Given the setting – a bathroom in a northern California home – no one could blame the big cat for wanting some privacy.

But in this case, it was the lion that was the unwanted guest. On Monday night it wandered into a family home in the Sierra Nevada foothills, about 50 miles outside of Yosemite National Park.

The mountain lion banged through the front screen door ...

Malcolm Gladwell Goes On Bill Simmons's Podcast To Dust Off The Oldest, Dumbest Defense Of Joe Paterno

Gladwell’s never been very rigorous in constructing his arguments and theories, but he possesses enough rhetorical flair that you would at least expect him to come up with a novel argument about Paterno, and one that could at least sound true and convincing for the three-second interval before you actually started thinking it over. But no, Gladwell couldn’t even give us that. His argument that Paterno was wrongfully blamed for not having done anything to stop Jerry Sandusky from raping ...

'Dead tree after dead tree.' The case of Washington's dying foliage

When Jim and Judy Davis moved to their property in Granite Falls two and a half years ago, the trees in their 25-acre forest were healthy.

Then the hemlocks started to turn brown.

Now, “if we were to walk this path completely -- it’s about a quarter of a mile -- this is what you would see,” Jim Davis said, “just dead tree after dead tree.
