Black Activist Marches Through San Francisco Chanting ‘White Lives Matter,’ Urges White People to Be Proud of Their Skin — Police Called (VIDEO)

A brave and bold black YouTuber marched down a busy street in the outskirts of San Francisco chanting “white lives matter” and demanding that white people should not be made to feel guilty about the color of their skin.

Ironically, police were called by angry liberals.

In the video, first reported on by Nationalist Review, YouTuber “Savage Audits” filmed himself and people’s reactions to his commonsense statements, while also hilariously calling people who were upset by his stance “libtards.”

Savage Audits ranted about the crazy liberals who want segregation on college campuses, calling their sentiments “unAmerican.”

“WHITE LIVES MATTER! WHITE LIVES MATTER! Anybody who supports segregated safe spaces on our college campuses that exclude people is an unAmerican bigoted piece of filth,” the YouTuber shouted. “White lives matter! White lives matter! White lives matter!”

When a man flipped him off, Savage Audits immediately turned to him and asked “what, white lives don’t matter, brother?”

As the activist continued down the street, he saw a young white boy with his dog. “White lives matter young man and don’t forget it. Don’t let anybody put shame or guilt into you. You did nothing wrong. Slavery ended over 150 years ago,” he tells him.

The Nationalist review notes that “One woman nodded along as Savage Audits listed the accomplishments of Europeans and others were surprised to hear that colleges have begun re-segregating certain areas of campus, like Oklahoma University chose to do earlier this month.”

“It’s okay to be white!” he repeatedly shouts.

The situation grew tense when a confrontational man approached him and the activist warned him that any violence would be a huge mistake. Police were subsequently called.

Ultimately, the man was allowed to continue on his way.

2 women drop sex abuse case against Costa Rica ex-president

2 women drop sex abuse case against Costa Rica ex-presidentTwo women who had lodged sexual abuse complaints against Nobel Peace Prize laureate and two-time Costa Rican President Oscar Arias have withdrawn those complaints. The decision to drop the complaints means that a court could drop the charges, given that it appears prosecutors have no other evidence to rely on in the case. Rafael Rodríguez, a lawyer for former Miss Costa Rica Yasmín Morales, who filed one of the complaints, said he could not comment on the decision to drop it.

Mexico raises gross debt limit to 70% for rest of president’s term

September 7, 2020

By Abraham Gonzalez

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico has raised a non-binding limit for gross debt to 70% of gross domestic product (GDP), almost 20 percentage points above last year’s level, for the remaining four years of the term of its fiscally conservative president.

Mexico’s debt to GDP ratio is closely watched by ratings agencies, which this year stripped national oil company Petroleos Mexicanos of its investment grade rating and who warn that the nation’s sovereign rating could be next.

Ratings agencies have cited the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, interest rate changes and a depreciation of the peso as the main risk factors for further downgrades.

Charles Seville, head of North American sovereign ratings at Fitch Ratings, said a further downgrade will depend in part on how much the government deviates from its fiscally conservative course.

“There are several triggers, one is if indeed the debt to GDP ratio continues to rise or we believe it is going to continue to rise. And that could result from either policies or the evolution of the virus and the economy from here. So that’s pretty important.”

Mexico had a gross debt to GDP ratio of 60.2% updated to June, about 10 percentage points above the level at the close of 2019, official statistics show. In a document issued after the president’s state of union address last week, the government revealed the new upper limit of 70%.

The limit is not legally binding.

The Mexican finance ministry did not respond to requests for comment.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said his government’s decision to avoid debt-fueled economic stimulus meant the country had healthy finances.

Lopez Obrador also promises an austere 2021 budget – due to be presented to Congress by the finance ministry late on Tuesday.

“Last year, we didn’t increase debt and that helped us,” Lopez Obrador said during a regular news conference, adding that the ratio had increased because of the economic contraction and a weaker peso.

The central bank predicts the economy will contract by almost 13% because of the pandemic.

“Because of the pandemic, it was no longer possible to maintain the same level of debt but we’ll recover and grow,” Lopez Obrador said.

Beijing Delays Visas For Journalists From WSJ, CNN & Bloomberg As President Xi Cracks Down On Dissent

Beijing Delays Visas For Journalists From WSJ, CNN & Bloomberg As President Xi Cracks Down On Dissent

Tyler Durden

Mon, 09/07/2020 – 19:35

In its latest attack on Western journalists that’s part of both a broader “New Cold War” with the US, and a crackdown on dissent in the aftermath of the pandemic, engineered by President Xi, Beijing is throwing up new roadblocks to stop western journalists from Bloomberg, CNN & WSJ from remaining in China.

The delays were couched as retaliation for the Trump Administration’s latest limitations on visa term limits for reporters working in the US on behalf  of state-controlled Chinese press. These organizations have been subjected to myriad new requirements by Trump and the administration in a push to limit electoral interference from Beijing.

Here’s more from Bloomberg:

Chinese authorities delayed renewing the press credentials of some journalists working for American media outlets, including Bloomberg News, CNN and the Wall Street Journal, in response to the Trump administration limiting visa terms for Chinese reporters in the US.

The journalists in Beijing were told their residence permits will at this stage be extended until Nov. 6, which appears to coincide with the date when the 90-day visas given to Chinese press in the U.S. will need to be renewed. Two non-Americans at Bloomberg News received a letter allowing them to work and stay in the country in lieu of having official press credentials, which in the past were normally good for 12 months.

An organization for foreign correspondents put out a statement slamming Beijing’s decision.

A Bloomberg spokesperson declined to comment. The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China called on Beijing to reverse the move.

“These coercive practices have again turned accredited foreign journalists in China into pawns in a wider diplomatic conflict,” the group said in a statement Monday. “The FCCC calls on the Chinese government to halt this cycle of tit-for-tat reprisals in what is quickly becoming the darkest year yet for media freedoms.”

A spokesperson for China’s Foreign Ministry played down the delays, saying all the reporters affected would be allowed to stay in China for an extended period.

As per usual, Beijing denounced the Trump Administration’s latest crackdown on Chinese state media with characteristically aggressive rhetoric.

At a regular news briefing later Monday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian accused the U.S. of “kidnapping” journalists and taking “hostages” in the dispute. “For China, all options are on the table,” he said, noting that the U.S. had also refused to rule out any actions.

“If the U.S. truly cares about American journalists in China, it should extend the visas for all Chinese journalists as soon as possible instead of kidnapping Chinese and American journalists out of selfish political purposes,” Zhao said.

Beijing has said the U.S. has expelled more than 60 Chinese media personnel and denied visas to more than 20 others. Meanwhile, the FCCC said the Chinese government had forced a record 17 foreign correspondents to leave in the first half of this year and put at least a dozen more on visas as short as one month.

The Trump Administration has frequently taken the lead on curbing the influence of Chinese state-backed media in the US. Social media companies like Twitter have often been more focused on censoring the President and his allies.

And for all the criticism of Beijing published by NYT and WaPo, they were still more than willing to take the CCP’s ad money.

Bolivian court denies former leader Morales’ bid to be Senate candidate

September 7, 2020

LA PAZ (Reuters) – A Bolivian court on Monday rejected a legal appeal by former president Evo Morales, deeming him ineligible to run for a Senate position in an October election re-run of a voided vote late last year.

Morales cannot be a Senate candidate for his Movement for Socialism (MAS) party because he does not meet the residency requirements, Judge Alfredo Jaimes told local media.

The former president, now living in exile in Argentina, stepped down last year after a disputed election sparked widespread protests. General elections are scheduled for Oct. 18 after being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The court’s decision upholds a previous block on Morales’ candidacy by Bolivia’s electoral tribunal in February and cannot be appealed.

Argentina coronavirus death toll surpasses 10,000

September 7, 2020

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Argentina’s coronavirus death toll surpassed 10,000 on Monday, the government said, as the South American nation struggles to bring its infection rate under control.

There have been 10,129 deaths, with 488,007 confirmed coronavirus cases, according to government data. Almost half of coronavirus tests are yielding a positive result.

Argentina has been under lockdown since March 20, though cases have spiked in recent weeks. Some areas of the country, including capital Buenos Aires, remain under varying levels of quarantine, though some activities, like exercise and outdoor restaurant dining, recently resumed.
