Before he was banned from Twitter, Yiannopoulos had 300,000 followers. Spencer had more than 30,000 Twitter followers at publication time, and Cernovich had nearly 190,000. But a social media following isnt the same as votes, or membership, and the numbers question is now tangled in the new ambiguity about who is or isnt part of the alt-right, or the alt-light, or new right. There is a noisy online white nationalist alt-right core that amplifies its voice by frenetically posting on Twitter, Reddit and 4Chan, often using multiple accounts to inflate its perceived size. The alt-right subreddit has more than 13,000 registered users. At Spencer’s November conference in Washington, about 200 people showed up. Johnson and others have the ear of people in Trump’s orbit, and their online visibility creates a kind of political cover for slightly more moderate versions of nationalism now represented within the White House.

One sees two familiar patterns: a financial elite that is a) actively seeking ancient sources of information, and b) seeking to monopolize and suppress it. — Joseph P. Farrell, Financial Vipers of Venice, p.205 By Bankster Slayer It never ceases to amaze me how, with 15 minutes' worth of internet search, a person can uncover a treasure chest of knowledge that you never knew existed. As I've traveled through tangled labyrinths of suppressed history and elite priesthoods, one thing has always remained constant: the truth was always lying there, ready to be found, ready for somebody to simply lift the lid and JUST LOOK. In Part One of this Antarctica saga [ linked here ], we scratched the surface of the mysteries of our most southern continent. We were left hanging with an introduction to the expedition or rather, invasion codenamed Operation Highjump.

It's telling that a show about a 47-year-old American pope with a fluctuating accent and troubling proclivity for Cherry Coke Zero was only the second weirdest episode to air on TV on Jan. 15. The Season 4 finale of BBC's Sherlock opened with an abandoned plane, the ghost of a child and clowns in an old Victorian mansion. The latter, at least, turns out to be a melodramatic staging, but by the end of "The Final Problem" you long for the simplicity of a false hallucination. SEE ALSO: 'Sherlock' creator shuts down Season 4 critics with poetic open letter Episode 2 ended with the reveal that Sherlock and Mycroft have a sister, Eurus (Sian Brooke), who Sherlock barely remembers to the point that Mycroft's manipulation has all but eliminated the memories. Eurus was a genius "beyond Newton," (possessed of more than just "the deduction thing," as John eloquently describes it).

Like the Hajj in Mecca or the Ashoura in Iraq's Karbala, the Feast of the Black Nazarene draws millions of pilgrims: they come to give thanks, to pay penance, and to pray for miracles at the holy procession of a dark-skinned statue of Jesus Christ carrying a cross, which is pulled through the city by long ropes. Among the pilgrims are thousands of gangsters, crime lords, and petty criminals seeking absolution. When I pull the rope I whisper to the Black Nazarene, Michael Salceda, a local government official and a former user of methamphetamine, which is known locally as shabu , tells TIME, Prayers for forgiveness for the things that I've done. The evening before, thousands of families sleep on pieces of cardboard on the streets or under parasols at Manila's Rizal Park, which with its food concessions, candles and tangled bodies resembled more a music festival than a religious gathering.

His papacy even started with a broken rule, though it's one for which he cant be blamed: When his powerful father Duke Alberic II of Spoleto told the clergy to appoint his illegitimate son as Pope, he violated the decree that papal replacement plans aren't supposed to begin before a sitting Pope dies. The clergy honored the duke anyway, and made his son the Pope. Pope John XII also served as prince of Rome, like other pontiffs figures of the era, so he wasnt the first Pope who split his duties between secular and sacred. But evidence shows that his primary goal was to protect the papal states, rather than inspire believers. He faced a deeply fractured region, with many tangled political conflicts, so that was a difficult task. Case in point: John XII kicked his papacy off with a bang, leading an army against two Italian duchies to try to reclaim key papal states.

When you feel ready though you can do exactly that, and with alerts for when stocks rise or fall a certain amount you don't have to watch the market all day. It's quite possibly the most entertaining take on the stock market since 1987's Wall Street and far lower stakes than getting tangled up with a real life Gordon Gekko. As part of Facebook's ongoing attempt to bleed into every part of our lives it's launched an app called Moments , which is designed to make it easier to share photos with friends, especially those that you snapped of them. It does this by automatically grouping them together into 'Moments', based on when they were taken and who was in them and then in a few taps you can share them with a group of friends. Anyone you've shared a Moment with can add their own photos to it, so you can build albums as a group and make sure you have every shot from that night out, to hopefully piece together what happened between leaving the house and waking up in Spain.

With every new innovation in the artificial intelligence space, it becomes even more tempting to imagine a near future filled with humanoid robots ready and willing to accomplish any task. After all, that's what we've been promised by sci-fi movies and books for years. But once our future artificially intelligent robot overlords assistants are ingrained in society and inevitably tangled up in the stickier aspects of the human experience, what legal rights are they due, if any? It's a central question at speculative panels for futurists but a proposal approved by the European Parliament's Legal Affairs committee today will actually bring the debate to legislative bodies, according to CNN .

White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday issued an implicit rebuke of his successor, Sean Spicer, who tangled with a CNN reporter in New York on Wednesday at Donald Trump’s first news conference as president-elect. According to CNN reporter Jim Acosta, Spicer threatened to throw him out the presser after Acosta repeatedly requested that Trump allow him to ask a question. Spicer later questioned Acosta’s version of events and demanded that he apologize. “I can never recall a scenario in which I was tempted to throw somebody out of the room,” even when he was most frustrated with a reporter, Earnest said at the afternoon’s daily briefing. “I can certainly say that that's not something I ever threatened to do, even if the thought crossed my mind.” Trump on Wednesday refused to call on Acosta, disparaging him and CNN as “fake news” in response to the network’s Tuesday blockbuster report that intelligence officials are investigating unsubstantiated allegations that Russia had gathered compromising material on the president-elect.

Is Duke star Grayson Allen just trolling us now? Because this is getting ridiculous. College basketball's most notorious villain either can't stop, or won't stop, or we're all going crazy. SEE ALSO: Grayson Allen and the arrogant sanctimony of Duke's Coach K Allen's "indefinite suspension" for tripping opponents over and over again was cut laughably short last week after lasting just one game , which Duke lost. Allen has played in three contests since returning and in two of those he's gotten tangled up in plays that look mighty suspect for someone with his record. As much as fans complain and criticize, sports villains are fun. They're an essential part of the mythological landscape that we construct around silly games and then populate with heroes, antiheroes and bad guys. Read more...

Taj Mahal: the iconic image of India. Most visitors to this country of over a billion inhabitants fly in to Delhi, drive three hours to Agra to see this World Wonder, and then leave. But there are plenty of reasons first timers to India should stay a few days - a couple of nights in Delhi and one in Agra, in order to delve a bit deeper into a culture that may perplex, may cause angst, but is, at its heart warm, colorful and eager to please. Over 1.3 billion people live in India, with population centers like Mumbai, Delhi, Calcutta and others a snarl of humanity, animals, and vehicles like no other. An unceasing stream of cows, cars, trucks, monkeys, tuk-tuks, bicycles, scooters, donkeys pulling and merchants pushing carts, potholes, dirt roads, dust, smog, shanties, tents, tangled wires, honking horns - this pageantry on every street may cause extreme disorientation.
