Huge fire guts Robert E. Lee
Elementary School in Tampa amid
rumors it will be renamed due to
Confederate General controversy

Daily Mail [UK], by Michelle Ganney

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 9/13/2017 1:16:11 PM

Robert E. Lee Elementary School was ravaged by a fire Tuesday evening in Tampa Heights. The explosive flames occurred around 7pm, which is when firefighters rushed to the scene, according to Tampa Fire Rescue spokesman Jason Penny. Officials don´t believe the fire to be suspicious, however they are still investigating the cause of the inferno. (Snip) More than half of the school’s students are African-American, which has led the members from the Hillsborough County School Board to discuss a potential name change. Robert E. Lee was the commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia during the American Civil War.

Comments:
A blaze purely coincidental. I´d suggest naming it in honor of Weather Underground firebomber/guy in the neighborhood/ghostwriter Bill Ayers, but that´s off the table cuz he white. Last line in the clip above is comical, as few students there would have any idea of who Robert E. Lee was, other than as someone bearing the original sin of melanin deficiency.

It´s too bad it has come to this. It´s beginning to look like a real race war is simmering.

Gadsden, Ala. — After nearly two weeks of sexual assault allegations from several women, Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Roy Moore attempted to debunk claims from one of his accusers Beverly Young-Nelson. Moore’s campaign sent the following in a press release: Gadsden, Ala. – On Monday evening, the Moore Campaign unveiled statements from key witnesses that completely bust the story of Beverly Nelson and Gloria Allred and further reveal an unconscionable bias on the part of state and national press to hide the truth from Alabama voters who will undoubtedly see through the “fake news” and elect Judge Moore for the man that

The floundering Daily News lost $90.4 million over the last three years — including $23.7 million of red ink in the year ended Dec. 25. Revenue last year tumbled 14.2 percent, to $144.78 million, according to a regulatory filing on Monday. Paid print Monday-to-Friday circulation slipped to 182,472 in the second quarter, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. (Snip) The Daily News was able to trim its losses in 2017 by $5.3 million over 2016 only by aggressively slashing staff and other expenses. Compensation costs tumbled 16.1 percent in 2017 from the previous year. The declining circulation meant the company

Federal Way, Wash. — A vicious attack left a woman in Federal Way with broken bones in her face. It might have been motivated by her effort to help others — warning them of a man who approached her asking for directions and then began fondling himself. The victim, 35-year-old Amanda Edwards, says it started in a Safeway parking lot and ended on her walk home. (Snip) Edwards was at Safeway to buy dinner for her three kids around 6:15 Monday night. Instead – she returned home with four fractures in her face, including a crack down the roof of her mouth.

A Democratic congresswoman says she was sexually assaulted by a “prominent, historical” senator in the 1980s — and “everyone on Capitol Hill knew” that he was a harasser. “Historical figure, hand kept going up the leg, I took it off. A women member was at the table, recognized what was happening, and said, ‘switch places,´” Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell told CNN. (Snip) Dingell said it happened in her first year of marriage to Rep. John Dingell, whom she wed in 1981. But despite the 36-year time gap, Dingell said she’s still afraid to name the prominent perv.

A Department of Homeland Security official resigned Thursday after a report revealed he had made racist remarks in past radio interviews. The Rev. Jamie Johnson, director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at DHS, said in a 2008 radio show that the black community had turned “America´s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.” (Snip) In another discussion, Johnson said President George W.

Embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday said allegations that he sexually harassed women and girls won’t push him out of the race, and instead called on the GOP’s Senate leader to step down. Moore once again forcefully denied the accusations, and cut ties to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had called on Moore to step aside. “Many of you have recognized that this is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it,” Moore told reporters. “I want to tell you

Des Moines, Iowa — As he tows a 96-square-foot house around Des Moines, Joe Stevens is overwhelmed by the intense, sometimes tearful support he receives from churches, schools and service groups for his plan to use the trendy little structures to help homeless people. But when Stevens actually tried to create a village of the homes in Iowa’s largest city, the response was far different. (Snip) In at least a dozen cases across the nation, neighbors organized to stop tiny house projects, including in Charlotte, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; San Jose, California; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tallahassee, Florida; and Bend, Oregon.

Target Corp.’s holiday-quarter profit forecast missed analyst expectations, sending its shares down 10 percent on Wednesday as hopes faded that the retailer would make a shopping season comeback. Target has missed Wall Street’s fourth-quarter profit expectations for the past two years. It is gearing up for the holidays by cutting prices and introducing delivery options to compete with Wal-Mart and online sellers, moves that can lure customers but crimp margins. (Snip) “This is still a very competitive environment, and Target has no choice but to respond to that.. the problem is that Wall Street don’t necessarily understand

An illegal immigrant was charged this week in the death of a New York socialite who was found bludgeoned to death in her hilltop estate two years ago, the end result of an elaborate international manhunt. Esdras Marroquin Gomez, 32, pleaded not guilty Monday at his arraignment on a murder charge in the death of 83-year-old Lois Colley, according to the Westchester County district attorney´s office, who said he was indicted by a grand jury last year. "The murder scene was horrendous," Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino said. "From our evaluation, we believe the murder weapon was a home fire

A special Haitian Senate commission is accusing more than a dozen former government officials and heads of private firms of embezzling $2 billion in Venezuelan oil loans — money that could have helped the country rebuild after its devastating earthquake in 2010. An anti-corruption investigation concluded that charges should be filed against two former prime ministers, several ex-ministers and the owners of private firms on grounds they misappropriated and embezzled money that left post-quake Haiti with unfinished government buildings, poorly constructed housing and overpriced public works contracts. (Snip) “It can be declared that the PETROCARIBE has been the object of embezzlement,

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside, hours after a new accuser came forward alleging Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. “If he continues this will not end well for Mr. Moore,” Graham tweeted. (Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on Monday called for Moore to “step aside,” and was followed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and others. Some have suggested rallying a write-in campaign around Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in a primary runoff in September.

More than six in ten babies born in London hospitals have foreign mothers who are either immigrants or visiting from abroad, official figures show.

He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be

Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc. Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion.

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83. Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died of natural causes at Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement. TMZ was first to report on the killer´s death. The celebrity-news site reported that Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon, said she received a call

Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior

John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing
