Over 200 Killed or Wounded by Islamic State at Kabul Wedding
The Islamic State claimed responsibility for attacking a wedding in Kabul, Afghanistan this past weekend. This suicide bombing resulted in 63 deaths and 182 others wounded. This is the terrorist organization’s latest attempt to re-establish its foothold in Afghanistan.
The suicide bomber stood in the middle of the dancing, clapping crowd as hundreds of Afghan children and adults celebrated a wedding in a joyous release from Kabul's strain of war. Then in a flash, he detonated his explosives-filled vest, killing dozens. https://t.co/XKJLH6hlla

Meanwhile, President Trump is working on a way to remove US forces from Afghanistan that results in the least amount of bloodshed. The unfortunate truth is that there will be violence whether America has a presence in the region or not. Political analysts say that a continued US presence in the country will result in more instability, though.
Officer Responsible for Eric Garner’s Death Fired
Daniel Pantaleo was recently terminated from his position in the NYPD five years after the death of Eric Garner. Pantaleo utilized a lethal chokehold on Garner, which spurred the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement to protest Garner’s death. BLM reactionaries attempted to take matters into their own hands at that time because they couldn’t wait for justice to be served.
Pantaleo’s removal from the police force proves that judgement will come to those who deserve it. Some cases may take longer than others, but the law of the land will always be upheld in the end.
For over 5 years, the Garner family & communities across the country have waited for justice in the death of Eric Garner.
With the termination of Officer Pantaleo, today some semblance of justice is finally being served.

Russia Continues to Cover Up Nuclear Missile Explosion
Conspiracy theories are running wild in the midst of a disastrous Russian nuclear missile test. Some claim this is Chernobyl 2.0 while others say that this is merely a routine missile launch gone wrong. Either way, the Russian government is hiding something, as per usual.
Patients entered hospitals shortly after the blast for treatment. Unsurprisingly, the doctors weren’t informed that their patients were just involved in a nuclear accident. In fact, Russian authorities forced doctors to sign non-disclosure agreements in an attempt to suppress the truth:
Russian Doctors Say They Weren’t Warned Patients Were Nuclear Accident Victims:
One doctor was reportedly later found to have a radioactive isotope in their muscle tissue.

However, many doctors were flown to Moscow for testing. Edwin Lyman, a nuclear safety expert in Washington D.C., commented that Caesium-137, a byproduct of Uranium-235 fission reactions, was found in one of the doctor’s muscle tissues. The Caesium could have come from a nuclear blast or from a radiation detection device.
Now there is a report that a doctor who treated victims of the Russia explosion had been exposed to the isotope cesium-137. If true, this might be an indication that a critical nuclear reactor was involved, although Cs-137 could also be used in an RTG. https://t.co/Qjwl1tvU8I

Whatever happened at the Russian naval testing facility is apparently worth covering up. It’s only a matter of time before the truth reveals itself. We’ll keep you posted as more details roll in.
