US Border Patrol agents used tear gas to disperse hundreds of Central American migrants in the Mexican city of Tijuana who made a rush for the border fence, as tension builds over the diminishing prospects for asylum seekers trying to enter the country.

After the events of Oct. 2, our family visited Dad’s home in Virginia.
The hardest part was seeing his empty chair. His absence was deafening. We could see him sitting there, glasses on his forehead, reading or typing away. As we looked at his belongings, we knew he had chosen to write so tirelessly in the hopes that when he did return to the kingdom, it might be a better place for him and all Saudis.
This is no eulogy, for that would confer a state of closure.
Rather, this is a promise that his light will never fade, that his legacy will be preserved within us. Baba said it best:
“Some depart to remain,” which rings true today. We feel blessed to have been raised with his moral compass, his respect for knowledge and truth, and his love.
RIP 10/13/18 Posted by Scorpion Sting on November 5, 2018
To all of my husband’s followers and to the friends he has made I thank you from the bottom of my heart and from his heart for coming to this site and his other sites. Many of you only knew my dear husband from this site and did not know the true person he was some even thought poorly of him but my husband was a very loving and dedicated father and an even more than loving spouse, soulmate and best friend to me.
This was his blogs and views and I love him for being him and not giving a fuck what others thought. Unfortunately this will be the last post – my loving husband passed away unexpectedly on October 13, 2018.
Our beautiful children and myself are grieving deeply for the wonderful person he was to us and writing this last post in his place is killing me on the inside but I needed to make sure everyone knew.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
Cecil and David Rosenthal lived together, worshipped together, made their way through life together, two intellectually disabled brothers in their 50s who were ensconced in Pittsburgh’s close-knit Jewish community. And on Tuesday, they will be buried there together, in one of the first funerals to follow the shooting that killed the brothers and nine other people at Tree of Life synagogue.
Funerals were also set Tuesday for Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz, a family-medicine practitioner known for his caring and kindness, and Daniel Stein, a man seen as part of the core of his congregation.
Other victims’ funerals have been scheduled through Friday in a week of mourning, anguish and questions about the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.
The norms, the standards, the beliefs, the expectations, the behavior, the basic goodness I grew up with; the values instilled in me by my parents, my teachers, my role models, my guides are being shaken to the core.
I feel the ground shaking under my feet. I’m losing my moorings. I’m questioning what is happening around me.
Evil things are happening and there’s no check on them.
Seems evil is winning a ferocious battle and I was taught that good would always prevail.
When I have no words, tears come to my eyes and express that pain.
He was a prominent journalist who has covered major stories, including the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the rise of Osama Bin Laden, for various Saudi news organizations.
For decades, Mr. Khashoggi had been close to the Saudi royal family and he also served as an adviser to the government.
But he fell out of favor and went into self-imposed exile in the US last year. From there, he has written a monthly column in the Washington Post in which he has criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
In his first column for the newspaper, Mr Khashoggi said that he feared being arrested in an apparent crackdown on dissent overseen by the prince since he became first in line to succeed his father King Salman earlier that year.
“The people being arrested are not even being dissidents, they just have an independent mind,” he told the BBC’s Newshour program just three days before he disappeared.
He first visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 28 September to obtain a document certifying that he had divorced his ex-wife, so that he could marry his Turkish fiancée.
But he was told he would have to return and arranged to come back on the 2 October.
“He did not mind walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul because he did not believe that something bad could happen on Turkish soil,”
his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, wrote in the Washington Post.
“Jamal was hardly concerned ahead of his second visit.”
When we spoke, she had just tweeted about him and read it aloud:
“All President Trump cares about is winning.
He said it during his campaign, and he says it now.
But what do we all lose as he wins?”
Streisand, no stranger to politics throughout her career, is releasing her first album of original songs since 2005, called Walls, on November 2.
Late last month, she released the album’s first single, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which is a direct address to the president. And on Tuesday, Streisand released the music video – the first she’s ever directed – complete with images of protests and even a sign somewhere in there that says “Stop Kavanaugh.”
“I’m just so concerned with our country and the world,” she said. “When I say in the song ‘we all lose,’ do we lose our integrity as a nation? Do we lose our reputation in the world? One of the songs talks about a beacon of light, and ‘Lady Liberty’ talked about the danger in the sound of silence, when people don’t speak up, when people don’t vote. And now we have a leader who can’t be trusted. The way he pushed Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court to protect himself is unconscionable; we have a leader and now a Supreme Court justice who tells lies.”
She added that it’s the young people of this country who are already living out the message of her new album and who have already set the example of what good activism looks like.
“As I say in the booklet of the new album, I’ve been especially moved by the young people in the United States who have found their voice and are demanding to be heard,” she said.
“They’re more interested in building bridges than walls; they are the very definition of hope.
They’re on my mind, and I dedicate this album to them.”
“If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma, there is science and scientific proof, it’s biology, that people change.
The brain changes. And literally what it does is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box, and it files it away and shuts it so that we can survive the pain,” Gaga said emphatically.
“It also does a lot of other things, it can cause body pains, baseline elevations in anxiety, it can cause complete avoidance of wanting to even remember or think about what happened to you,” she continued.
‘Til It Happens to You” is a song produced and performed by American singer Lady Gaga. She co-wrote the song with Diane Warren for the 2015 documentary film The Hunting Ground, which deals with campus rape in the United States.
A portion of the proceeds from retail sales was donated to organizations supporting victims of sexual assault.
