On April 7, 2017, someone set fire to Central Market on Albemarle in Charlotte, North Carolina, and left a note, signed “White America,” threatening the store owner, a refugee originally from Bhutan.
But surveillance video shows that the “white racist” Trump-supporter turns out to be a black man.
Alex Shabad reports for WCNC.com, April 7, 2017, that the letter references President Trump, then goes on to threaten the store owner, Kamal Dhimal, with torture if he doesn’t “go back where he came from”:
Our newly elected president Donald Trump is our nation builder for white America. You all know that, we want our country back on the right track. We need to get rid of Muslims, Indians and all immigrants. Specially (sic), we don’t want business run by refugees and immigrant any more (sic).
We are ready to wake up some of our great state including North Carolina and we will take care of the country. Immigrants and refugee are taking our job, doing our business and leaving us standard (sic). So, you are not allowed to do business any more (sic).
We know you are one and many of other immigrant doing business here. This is our warning. Leave the business and go back where you came from.
If you don’t follow this warning then we are not responsible for the torture starting now.
God Bless America… … … …White America”
Although the arsonist’s letter was signed “White America,” police say the suspect is a black man who threw a brick through Central Market’s door, entered the store, and set the door on fire, inflicting more than $1,000 in damages.
CMPD says surveillance video of the incident shows a black male suspect, who is approximately 5-foot-8, around 200 pounds, has a short afro and goatee, and was wearing a gray hoodie under a black coat with light jeans and black shoes.
Meanwhile, Dhimal says he doesn’t know if he’ll reopen the store: “I’m here in this country to feel more secure, more safe, and more security, but yesterday I feel the same thing I have in my back home. I’m very sorry to say that.”
The FBI is also getting involved in the investigation. Detectives ask anyone with additional information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

A couple of points to keep in mind:
Two former U.S. intelligence officials are speaking out about what they know and believe about the April 4 “chemical attack” on the town in Idlib. They are:
Both Lang and McGovern maintain that:
Below are the respective analyses of Lang and McGovern, originally published on Intel Today, a website that is less than a year old, founded last July. My guess is Intel Today is a forum of retired and/or active “white hats” U.S. intelligence officials.
Donald Trump’s decision to launch cruise missile strikes on a Syrian Air Force Base was based on a lie. In the coming days the American people will learn that the Intelligence Community knew that Syria did not drop a military chemical weapon on innocent civilians in Idlib. Here is what happened.
There are members of the U.S. military who were aware this strike would occur and it was recorded. There is a film record. At least the Defense Intelligence Agency knows that this was not a chemical weapon attack. In fact, Syrian military chemical weapons were destroyed with the help of Russia.
This is Gulf of Tonkin 2. How ironic. Donald Trump correctly castigated George W. Bush for launching an unprovoked, unjustified attack on Iraq in 2003. Now we have President Donald Trump doing the same damn thing. Worse in fact. Because the intelligence community had information showing that there was no chemical weapon launched by the Syrian Air Force.
Here’s the good news. The Russians and Syrians were informed, or at least were aware, that the attack was coming. They were able to remove a large number of their assets. The base the United States hit was something of a backwater. Donald Trump gets to pretend that he is a tough guy. He is not. He is a fool.
This attack was violation of international law. Donald Trump authorized an unjustified attack on a sovereign country. What is even more disturbing is that people like Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, CIA Director Mike Pompeo and NSA Director General McMaster went along with this charade. Front line troops know the truth. These facts will eventually come out. Donald Trump will most likely not finish his term as President. He will be impeached, I believe, once Congress is presented with irrefutable proof that he ignored and rejected intelligence that did not support the myth that Syria attacked with chemical weapons.
It should also alarm American taxpayers that we launched $100 million dollars [Note: the cost is more likely $114.5 million, based on the per-unit cost of Tomahawk cruise missile] of missiles to blow up sand and camel shit. The Russians were aware that a strike was coming. I’m hoping that they and the Syrians withdrew their forces and aircraft from the base. Whatever hope I had that Donald Trump would be a new kind of President, that hope is extinguished. He is a child and a moron. He committed an act of war without justification. But the fault is not his alone. Those who sit atop the NSC, the DOD, the CIA, the Department of State should have resigned in protest. They did not. They are complicit in a war crime.
Syrian aircraft ‘knew’ there was a weapons cache in this particular rebel-held area. That was correct, and the Syrian aircraft bombed it.
What seems not to have been known was the existence nearby of a large storage facility for chemicals. That too was damaged, releasing a cloud of chemicals that the wind blew south and poisoned those villagers.
Here is what most likely happened:
The Russians briefed the United States on the proposed target. This is a process that started more than two months ago. There is a dedicated phone line that is being used to coordinate and deconflict (i.e., prevent US and Russian air assets from shooting at each other) the upcoming operation.
The United States was fully briefed on the fact that there was a target in Idlib that the Russians believes was a weapons and explosives depot for Islamic rebels.
The Syrian Air Force hit the target with conventional weapons. All involved expected to see a massive secondary explosion. That did not happen. Instead, smoke, chemical smoke, began billowing from the site. It turns out that the Islamic rebels used that site to store chemicals, not sarin, that were deadly. The chemicals included organic phosphates and chlorine and they followed the wind and killed civilians.
There was a strong wind blowing that day and the cloud was driven to a nearby village and caused casualties.
We know it was not sarin. How? Very simple. The so-called “first responders” handled the victims without gloves. If this had been sarin they would have died. Sarin on the skin will kill you.
In the early morning hours of April 7, 2017, the Trump administration fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from a U.S. destroyer in the Mediterranean Sea, at Shayrat Air Base in Syria which is alleged to be the location from where the Assad government, on April 4, had launched a chemical attack of sarin nerve gas which killed many civilians, including women and children, in the rebel-held town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib province.
The source of information on the April 4 chemical attack is the White Helmets, a supposedly impartial, Syrian-created NGO. In an op/ed in The Guardian on April 4, 2017, the head of the White Helmets, Raed Al Saleh points the finger at the Assad government as the instigator of the chemical attack:
[T]his morning we have witnessed a suspected chemical weapon attack – one of the most horrifying in six years of this bloody conflict. At least 60 civilians were gassed to death and more than 300 are still being treated; many are in a critical condition. Members of my team sought to wash the deadly chemical from the eyes of the affected children. Soon afterwards our centre in the town was destroyed, along with all of our life-saving equipment. Then a local hospital where victims were being treated was also bombed….
The central architects of the destruction, the Assad regime, continue their bombing campaign against Syrian civilians….
I am therefore horrified at reports in the news, and from personal briefings I have received, that certain leading European politicians want to consider a deal with the Assad regime. It is beyond belief that the perpetrators of most of the violence could effectively be rewarded, and even propped up, for their crimes.
There are several things we should consider before we climb aboard Trump’s war wagon as too many conservatives are doing, as seen in a Grassfire Nation poll, wherein a vast majority (who undoubtedly had opposed Obama wanting to attack Syria in 2013) agree with Trump’s decision to strike Syria.
Daniel McAdams is the Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. He is a former foreign affairs advisor to US Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) from 2001 until Dr. Paul’s retirement at the end of 2012, and a former journalist (1993-1999) based in Budapest, Hungary, including as editorial page editor of the Budapest Sun.
Beginning at the 3:58 mark of the video below, McAdams said:
“The fact is . . . we’re . . . literally on the eve of peace talks, Assad has the upper hand in these talks, he’s almost, essentially with his Russian and Iranian allies, wiped al-Qaeda and ISIS out of the country. So on the verge of this great victory that they’ve suffered for all these years, he decides ‘I think I’m gonna go out and kill some people with gas’. You know, if you just wanted to kill people, there are a heck of a lot better ways of doing it than using gas, which just guarantees that the entire world community, including your allies, are going to turn against you. He would have to be the most insane leader probably in the history of the world….”
The source of report about the recent gas attack incident is the White Helmets, aka Syrian Civil Defense, which claims to be an impartial NGO (non-government organization). But as the video below explains, the White Helmets:
In other words, the White Helmets are neither Syrian, nor impartial, nor independent, but are “al Qaeda with a facelift”.
Here’s a video of Syrian civilians saying the White Helmets never help civilians but instead help terrorists:
In the video below, Swedish Professor and Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) points out that a video of an alleged chlorine gas attack on Syrian civilians which the White Helmets provided the UN Security Council on March 16, 2015, and which was then broadcast by CNN on April 20, 2015, is not believable because:
SWEDHR publishes The Indicter magazine, where you’ll find a longer, more detailed article, “Analysis of evidence contradicts allegations on Syrian gas attacks“.

Sandy Coronilla reports for ABC10 that on Saturday, April Fool’s Day, a group of “a dozen or so” self-described witches gathered at noon in Balboa Park, San Diego, to put a hex or curse on President Trump.
They call the event “Fire the Fool San Diego!”.
Dressed up like witches with green face paint, the participants raised brooms above their heads and danced around a cauldron. They also marched through the park, chanting “Trump is a fool, Trump is a clown, we are here to shut him down.” One participant held up a sign that read, “I hex DT to protect America”; another wore a red “Make America Native Again” hat.
Participant Mary Lou Finley said, presumably referring to Trump, “It’s incredible that anyone could be so stupid as to do so many things that are hurtful to the American people.”
Note: I found, on Spokeo, a Mary L. Finley who lives in San Diego. She is 72 years old.
The event was organized by Ground Zero Players. Participants were required to attend a rehearsal and “witch curtain call.”
Ground Zero Players is a street theater group, est. 1987, in San Diego.
Why would witches need to be “organized” by a street theater group, much less attend a rehearsal for a supposedly spontaneous hex-gathering?
I call this bunk. This was a FAKE news of a FAKE protest by FAKE witches.
Thank you, TomoNews US, for the laughs.
