1…………> “Where Is The Rice, Man”: Comrade Un


The very hungry and malnourished North Korea’s had its foreign ministry lash out at the US for not lifting sanctions against the country, saying that the US was still following an “outdated acting script” and jeopardizing any progress.

Still, under a wide range of international and US sanctions over its nuclear programme and missile tests, Comrade Un made various significant conciliatory gestures: halted missile tests, returned the remains of US soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War and the dismantling of a nuclear site.

It also accused US officials of “going against the intention of President Trump” by “making baseless allegations” and “desperate attempts at intensifying the international sanctions and pressure.”


2…………> “Bait Truck”: Chicago


After activists and residents confronted police officers about an unmarked white truck with its back gate wide open and parked in a low income, high crime city area, Chicago police say they will “take a hard look” at their use of “bait trucks” to catch thieves and criminals.

Activists said it was filled with designer shoes and left partially open to entrap groups of young people. 

“At the end of the day, just because it’s out there and it’s not yours, that doesn’t mean you’re supposed to take it,” police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at a news conference.





3…………> “Kill ICE Agent”: Ziobrovsky


A Cambridge, Massachusetts man identified as Brandon J. Ziobrowski, 33, a man who called for the contract killing of an ICE agent, was arrested in connection with the tweeting of a murder-for-hire solicitation to kill ICE agents for $500 following an investigation by the authorities.

He was charged in an indictment with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat to injure another person.

Ziobrowski was arrested Aug. 9 in New York and will appear in Boston at a later date.

5…………> Hitler Jr: India


An Indian politician named Naramalli Sivaprasa has appeared in Parliament dressed like Adolf Hitler with a toothbrush mustache and wearing a khaki coat with swastika symbols on his pocket and arm.

He has also dressed up as a Muslim cleric, a woman, and a farmer, to press different issues and demand more funds for the development of his state in southern India.

Naramalli Sivaprasa also raised his hand in a Nazi salute for the media, but his appearance did not trigger any protests from his fellow politicians since the Holocaust is not well known in India, and Adolf Hitler remains a subject of fascination and so is his book, Mein Kampf.

Perhaps someone should buy a ticket for Mr.Sivaprasa to visit Auschwitz and other death camps, and we shall then see if he would ever raise his arm in a Nazi salute again.
