Police are responding to an incident in central London on Saturday night following a report a van has hit a number of pedestrians on London Bridge. According to the BBC, witnesses have said a white van mounted the pavement and ran over pedestrians. There are reports there are armed police at the scene, and about five people are being treated for their injuries after being hit by the vehicle. BBC reporter Holly Jones, who was on the bridge at the time of the incident, said the van was driven by a man and was “probably travelling at about 50 miles an hour”. Ms. Jones said the van, which was travelling from the direction of central London, headed towards the south side of the river. She later reported seeing a man being arrested by police. She said he was handcuffed and had his shirt off. Video footage from inside a restaurant in the area close to the attack appears to show patrons being advised to get down on the floor should armed police enter.

Washington Times, by L. Todd Wood Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sat, 03 57 2017 09:57:33 GMT Russia declared today its first test of a hypersonic missile, a year ahead of schedule. Defense analysts proclaimed the test made U.S. missile defense systems obsolete. American missile defense has been a thorn in the side of the Kremlin since the days of Ronald Reagan’s SDI, or Strategic Defense Initiative. (Snip) The Russian international news site Sputnik suggested the missile, named Zircon, could be installed on Pyotr Veliky, the country’s nuclear-powered missile strike ship. Analysts stated the missile concept can fly at 4,600 miles per hour — that’s 6 times the speed of sound — and would be practically impervious to missile defense

Donsurber.com, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Sat, 03 18 2017 10:18:35 GMT Readers know well my credentials as an expert on typos. Poor proofreading skills and an inability to touch’type often leave grievous errors in this blog. But they also know my criticisms of Fake News media are meticulously accurate, as I shoot these fish in the barrel. Few items are as petty as covfefe. As of 4 PM Eastern, there were 929,000 news items on the president´s misspelling of “coverage” in a tweet. NPR reported: “The Tweet Heard Around The Wrold.” The last word´s misspelling was intentional. Oh what jokesters.(Snip)during a panel discussion on covfefe, CNN misspelled “chief” in a chyron.
Telegraph [UK], by Nicola Harley & Adam Nathan Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sat, 03 24 2017 10:24:56 GMT The Manchester bomber is suspected of being ´remote controlled´ by an Isil terror group behind the Paris and Brussels attacks, Libyan security sources have told the Telegraph. Salman Abedi is understood to have made calls to two mobile phone numbers based in Libya, which were not registered to his family, moments before the massacre that killed 22 people. “He called two Libyan men before the attack,” said the source in Libya. He is being investigated by Libyan authorities over fears he was ´remote controlled´ by ´virtual plotters´ in the country who coached and goaded him into carrying out the atrocity.
Breitbart Big Government, by Ken Klukowski Posted By: earlybird- Sat, 03 25 2017 10:25:02 GMT WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Supreme Court took the rare step on Friday of expediting consideration of a major case, rapidly accelerating the schedule for reviewing the Fourth Circuit’s blocking of President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order. (Snip)On Friday, the Supreme Court rapidly expedited everything. The ACLU—which represents the plaintiffs—have been ordered to file their response by 3:00 p.m. on Monday, June 12. The ACLU lawyers must also respond to DOJ’s application for a stay by that time. The Court could conceivably then vote immediately on whether to take the case, or anytime shortly thereafter. Under a normal briefing schedule, the Court would then
NY Times Public Editor Signs Off Warning of ´More Partisan´ Press ´Delighting in the Chaos´ of Trump
NewsBusters, by Tim Graham Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 03 31 2017 10:31:02 GMT New York Times public editor Liz Spayd signed off with a final column on Friday warning that the Times and other liberal media outlets may destroy their own credibility by shirking truly independent reporting for relentless partisan spleen’venting. Liberals inside and outside the Times clearly did not want to listen to this ” thinking Spayd spent far too much time harping on liberal bias when conservatives will never be satisfied with the media. There probably hasn’t been a time in recent American history when the role of the media was more important than now. The Trump administration is drowning in
