1...........> Enemy At GOP Gate: Bannon The Barbarian
In his very blunt way, former adviser to President Trump Steven Bannon said that "Russian collusion is a farce,” and had FBI Chief Comey not been fired, “we would not have the Mueller investigation."
He also returned fire on Republican congressional leaders and dedicated Council of Foreign Relations operators Paul “Romney Jr.” Ryan and Mitch ”Harry’s Twin” McConnell, accusing them of "trying to nullify the 2016 election” because “they do not want Donald Trump's populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented."
2..............> Applied Global Warming: Dakka, Bangladesh
A flooded street, a bus struggling on a road that looks more like a raging river, people walk in a high muddy water, half submerged rickshaws and vehicles misery stuck in rushing flood are the very familiar scenes seen in Dhaka, Bangladesh

4............> Serial Hurricanes: New Normal
First Hurricane Harvey left a path of deadly destruction and massive flooding in Louisiana and Texas, then Hurricane Irma ravaged through the French Caribbean, killing at least 10 people on island nations of Antigua and Barbuda. And now another tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic behind Irma: Jose, which might hit Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands on Friday or Saturday, after Hurricane Katia in the Gulf of Mexico has started making its way toward the coast, and is forecast to hit the state of Veracruz by early Saturday.
Experts and their predictive models have been warning that such disastrous storms will become more frequent in a warming world. Are Harvey and Irma a sign that serial hurricanes are the new normal?
5.............> Someone's Buying Hitler’s Dirty Laundry: The New Nazis
Hitler’s monogramed underwear is for sale, as apparently the Nazi dictator left the pair of 19”x39” shorts which are expected to bring between $4,000 and $5,000, and a signed copy of Hitler's racist manifesto "Mein Kampf" is expected to sell for as much as $20,000.
Hitler's globe, which was taken as a souvenir from Hitler's home in Bavaria by an American soldier, is expected to sell for about $100,000, and other Third Reich memorabilia being auctioned off include Adolf Hitler's monogrammed cocktail glass, which is expected to sell for up to $1,000, as well as a parasol that belonged to Hitler's wife, Eva Braun, which is expected to sell for as much as $1,500.
Last year, Eva Braun's lilac underwear was sold at a auction house in UK for a whopping $3,828, when experts thought it was worth only $528.
Is this wave of buying "Great Dictator's" dirty laundry just a nocturnal shopping spree by a bunch of aging Nazis, or an indicator of bulging and raging anti-Semitic movement that may lead to yet another "Kristall Nacht"?
