OTHER THINGS. Nobody says Stranger Things than Donald Trump.
CATALONIA.

The events will begin at 10am EST and culminate in a private social event that evening. With an expected attendance of around 200 people, this could be the largest gathering of white supremacists since Unite the Right in Charlottesville, Virginia.‘
SEBASTIAN GORKA. Hillary should be executed for Uranium deal. “If this had happened in the 1950s, there would be people up on treason charges right now. The Rosenbergs, okay? This is equivalent to what the Rosenbergs did, and those people got the chair. Think about it. Giving away nuclear capabilities to our enemies, that’s what we are talking about.”
L.A. North Hills man sentenced to life in prison for killing wife, gay son: “Prosecutors say Issa had a longtime gambling problem and needed cash.

UK. Christian thrown out of university for anti-gay remarks loses appeal: ‘Ngole, 39, wrote during a debate on Facebook that “the Bible and God identify homosexuality as a sin”, adding that “same-sex marriage is a sin whether we like it or not. It is God’s words and man’s sentiments would not change His words.”’
MANCHESTER. Gay village bar removes “brain tumor” cocktail from menu: “A bar has removed an ‘insensitive’ advert for a drink called ‘Brain Tumour’ after a complaint from a man whose mother died from the condition.”
