Sprott CEO Peter Grosskopf says the company’s board will be asked to demand Marc Faber’s resignation as director immediately, following the publication of a report in which Faber makes racist claims, Bloomberg News's Danielle Bochove reports.

The company will speak to Faber to ensure no "mistake" was made but expects to push for his resignation immediately.

Grosskopf said the company was "deeply disappointed" and shocked by Faber's comments: "We take pride in the fact that we are a global organization with a racially inclusive employee, client and investment base. Our policies in that regard are crystal clear and well known. As such these comments and thinking are completely unacceptable and we will be taking immediate steps to distance ourselves from Mr. Faber and request his resignation from our board."

Faber wrote in his investor letter this month that "the U.S. would look like Zimbabwe" if it had been settled by black people instead of whites.

McCain scolds Trump for missing Russian sanctions deadline

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) slammed the Trump administration on Wednesday for missing a key deadline in implementing sanctions against Russia.
“The delay calls into question the Trump administration’s commitment to the sanctions bill which was signed into law more than two months ago, following months of public debate and negotiations in Congress. They’ve had plenty of time to get their act together," the pair said in a joint statement on Wednesday.

By Oct. 1, the McCain and Cardin-penned sanctions bill required the administration clarify which targets would be identified and punished as part of Russia's defense and intelligence sectors. The administration has not yet done so.
The bill had been intended to force President Trump into punishing Russia for its tampering in the 2016 presidential election, with legislators fearing that the president would be overly lenient.
McCain and Cardin sent a letter to Trump reminding him of the deadline on Sept. 29.

Also on September 29, Trump issued a memorandum delegating most of the responsibilities of making the decisions outlined in the bill to members of the Cabinet. Trump passed the authority to determine who counted as military or intelligence to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
According to their Wednesday statement, the duo believes the administration has been slow to implement at least one other step in the Russian response.
“[T]here does not appear to be a significant diplomatic effort to engage our allies in Europe and lead an effort to increase pressure on Moscow. Congressional intent was clear, reflected in the overwhelming bipartisan majority in favor of the legislation," they said.

What about the current scandal that heavily implicates that Obama and Clinton were involved in Russian bribery/extortion?

Can we pass sanctions now? Fucking seriously, the Russians are begging to get their shit kicked in. It doesn't even matter if it was Democrats or Republicans giving Putin the reach-around, what matters is the fact that he was given a reach-around.

Can we drop the left vs right schtick and objectively look at this situation? I'm sick of this constant in-fighting when there are actual foreign powers attempting to subvert us.

Punishing Russia for unstantiated claims? Sounds more like war mongering to me. Trump wants peace, he believes the US can beat Russia through industry instead of through force. It's about time these warbirds be given the amount of attention they deserve.

I've been a part of a climate research team. I helped design a testing apparatus to work in a sounding rocket that could measure sulfate aerosols through the upper atmosphere. During development I learned quite a bit about climate models. Basically, they all fucking suck. According to some models the globe should be dead from cooling by now, others show extreme global warming raising sea levels destroying most of the coastal regions in 5 years time (this was 3 years ago). More development of the models and our understand of our climate needs to occur before we can say jackshit about human-caused global climate change.

Anybody who believes that climate change is of extreme issue and that humanity regulating gaseous exhaust into the atmosphere will have an affect on that climate change rests their argument on a still infantile science. I don't why this issue was so heavily politicized, but let scientists do the science and everyone else fuck off.

The Mandalay Bay security guard shot in the moments leading up to the Las Vegas massacre checked into a quick clinic instead of appearing in a series of previously scheduled interviews, but his union representative does not know his exact condition or location.

Las Vegas Shooting Victims

Hickey said hed been helping security guard Jesus Campos prepare for a string of interviews, scheduled for Thursday evening.

Reporters later in the night announced on social media he was nowhere to be found. Sean Hannity tweeted out that Campos cancelled his appearance on the show...

Thursday we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr. Campos was gone.

Missing Hotel Guard Jesus Campos Set to Make First TV Appearance Tomorrow

Hotel guard Jesus Campos set to make his first TV appearance after ‘vanishing.’

On Saturday, a representative for Jesus Campos revealed the hotel security guard checked into a clinic moments before he was set to speak to the media about the Las Vegas Massacre. Campos vanished moments he was set to appear on Fox News with Sean Hannity.

The Union representative who recently issued a statement to the press on Campos’ behalf says he doesn’t know where he is now. AfterCampos checked into a clinic, he appears to have vanished once again.

Fox News contributor Randy Sutton believes Campos was told to “shut the hell up,” about his role in the Las Vegas attack.

On Tuesday afternoon,MGM released a statement saying Jesus Campos is not missing and wants to wait for the proper time to reveal his side of the story on the Las Vegas shooting.

According to a Russian official, NK is preparing to test a long range missile in a few days. It's expected to happen on Monday or Tuesday depending on your timezone.
This could be the trigger that starts a nuclear war. Don't underestimate them.

A WORLD-RENOWNED JOURNALIST WAS ASSASSINATED, AND HER SON CLAIMS A POLICE SERGEANT WHO IS SUPPOSED TO INVESTIGATE HER MURDER, WAS CELEBRATING IT ON FACEBOOK.

Maltese Investigative Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was described as a “One-Woman WikiLeaks” after she led the Panama Papers investigation, was killed on Monday afternoon in a car bomb near her home.

Galizia’s career was devoted to exposing establishment corruption, and her most recent work revealed that Malta’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat, and two of his closest aides, had connections to offshore companies that linked them to the sale of Maltese passports, and showed that they had received payments from the government of Azerbaijan, according to a report from the Guardian.

During a press conference on the attack, Muscat acknowledged Galizia’s work, and said, “Everyone knows Ms. Caruana Galizia was a harsh critic of mine, both politically and personally, but nobody can justify this barbaric act in any way.”

However, Galizia’s son is not convinced, and he referred to Muscat as a “clown” who was taking advantage of the situation by “making statements to parliament about a journalist he spent over a decade demonizing and harassing,” just hours after her death.

“Joseph Muscat, Keith Schembri, Chris Cardona, Konrad Mizzi, the Attorney General and the long list of police commissioners who took no action: you are complicit. You are responsible for this,” Matthew Caruana Galizia wrote, claiming his mother was assassinated in a Facebook post.

My mother was assassinated because she stood between the rule of law and those who sought to violate it, like many strong journalists. But she was also targeted because she was the only person doing so. This is what happens when the institutions of the state are incapacitated: the last person left standing is often a journalist.

Not that guy, but even if you're right, the blatant racism pretty much makes you look retarded.

Perhaps that is the wrong approach to convincing a normie that, statistically and literally, he is wrong. He knows it, we know it. Your edgy kike references doesn't help, and makes you instantly invalidatable.

This "investigation" has been going on for over a year. To put this into perspective, the entire transcript of Trump's call with the spic President was leaked within 24 hours. So far, every bit of evidence that Trump and Russia illegally "colluded" is:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/17/us/trump-travel-ban-blocked.html

>President Trump’s attempts to block travelers from a handful of countries — most of them predominantly Muslim — from coming to the United States hit another legal snag on Tuesday, when a federal judge in Hawaii issued a nationwide order freezing most of Mr. Trump’s third travel ban the day before it was to take effect.

>At least for now, the judge’s order will prevent the Trump administration from stopping almost all travel to the United States indefinitely from most of the countries named in the ban.

>The ban, now in its third iteration, was one of Mr. Trump’s earliest and most controversial decisions after taking office in January, and it has also been one of the most legally troubled. Both previous versions were ordered halted by federal district judges who said they violated the Constitution or exceeded the president’s authority, and those orders were upheld on appeal.

>Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

>Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

>They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

>Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park was evacuated Saturday due to the discovery of a suspicious item on the site during the battlefield’s anniversary weekend.
The Virginia State Police Bomb Squad rendered the device safe, but according to the release, K9 units continued to search the battlefield.
The Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation announced earlier this week that it had received a letter threatening bodily harm to attendants of the re-enactment. As a result, security was increased.

Personally, I think it was ANTIFA or BLM. Nobody else hates history this much to want to try to kill people.

I'm none of those things, and yeah. Although we only load the powder during the events, the weapons are all capable of live fire, and the bayonets you get from Regimental Quartermaster are just as deadly as the real thing.

Anyway, ANTIFA seems to think I'm right. They threatened to muck up the Gettysburg event this past summer, and the reaction from all the participants, the national park service, and a bunch of hicks with ARs must have made them back down, because none of them even showed up.

I've always thought this is a really weird hobby. In a few decades will we have WWII/Nam/Afghanistan reenactments?

There are already groups that do WW2 and Vietnam. Tons, in fact.
I saw one at the Capital Air Show in Sacramento that has a working Huey they use. There are WW2 units that have working panzers, halftracks, jeeps, shermans and stuarts, and everything in between. In the UK they have spitfires. In some ranch in Texas, you can pay $950 to set up and shoot the last fully functional PaK 40 left in the world.

This iceberg goes deep, anon.
