CHIMAIRA LYRICS - "Crown Of Phantoms" (2013) album



9. Kings Of The Shadow World



Horror, inconceivable to believe torture, penetrate the heart of humanity

To satisfy is to sacrifice we rely on death to give meaning to life

Cult healing incomprehensible twenty first century massacre

We are what you fear the most in this drugged up dystopia

Catatonic butchers rule the mind we are what you fear the most

Orchestrating execution kings of the shadow world



Panic, everlasting cause for alarm terror, trepidation dropping the bomb

To satisfy is to sacrifice leave them, incapacitated twenty first century massacre

We are what you fear the most in this drugged up dystopia

Catatonic butchers rule your mind we are what you fear the most

Orchestrating execution kings of the shadow world

Behind the curtain evil darkness behind the shadows build inside us

Student Faces $200K Legal Bill For Criticizing University's Indigenous-Only Space | MRCTV

Student Faces $200K Legal Bill For Criticizing University's Indigenous-Only Space | MRCTV



An Australian student accused of racial discrimination is facing a A$200,000 legal bill(approximately $154,000 in U.S. currency) because of a Facebook post he made criticizing his university’s Indigenous-only computer lab policy.
The Brisbane Times reports Queensland University of Technology student Alex Wood is being sued under the Racial Discrimination Act over a Facebook post he made in 2013.
In the allegedly offensive Facebook post, Woods wrote that he “[j]ust got kicked out of the unsigned Indigenous computer room” and that the university is “stopping segregation with segregation.”
Two other students who questioned the university's policy are also involved in the lawsuit. One student made a racial slur, while another student asked, in jest, where the “white supremacist lab is.”
The lawsuit comes after Cindy Prior, an Indigenous woman, reportedly asked three students trying to access the computer lab “whether they were Indigenous.” When the students responded that they are not Indigenous, Prior told them to leave the “Indigenous space for Aboriginal Torres Strait students.”
According to the Brisbane Times, Prior then “went on sick leave following the incident.” The Brisbane Times states reports claim she “felt unsafe leaving her home because she was afraid somebody would say something offensive to her.”
The defense for all impacted parties could cost approximately A$500,000.
Prior is also seeking A$250,000 in damages for racism.

And, if Trump manages to land the Republican nomination, is there a chance that he could tap Simmons for a post as Vice President?

California's $15 Minimum Wage Ends Apparel Industry Revival

California's $15 Minimum Wage Ends Apparel Industry Revival



Cheered by union workers — some chanting in Spanish — at Brown’s Los Angeles signing ceremony for the bill lifting the statewide minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022, the governor all but admitted he was terminating the competitiveness of the Los Angeles rag trade and tanking the growing workforce with the comment, “Economically, minimum wages may not make sense.”

Public Schools in Obama's Home State Drowning in $20 Billion Debt - Breitbart

Public Schools in Obama's Home State Drowning in $20 Billion Debt - Breitbart



A new report on the state of the public school systems in Obama’s home state of Illinois finds they are $20 billion in debt with no end in sight to the growing budget failure.

According to a new review by the Chicago Tribune, the massive debt isn’t necessarily crushing the state’s schools, because the state legislature has passed laws to give schools the power to keep borrowing no matter what, so there is no incentive for the schools to mind budgets. According to the paper, the debt has accrued due to “special deals in Springfield that have given districts exemptions so they can keep borrowing beyond limits set by law.”
The Tribune found the state’s schools are collectively in enough debt to amount to about $10,000 for each Pre-K to 12th-grade public school student in the state.
“All the borrowing is a drain on taxpayers who have to repay the debt,” the paper noted, “as well as school budgets that must steer billions of dollars annually to principal and interest payments — money that could be targeted to classrooms. In some districts, more local tax money is collected for debt payments than for teacher salaries and student instruction.”
One public schools official told the paper that if a school in the state exceeds its limits “nothing happens,” so they just keep borrowing or they go to their representatives and get special set-asides or borrowing deals that sit outside their limits.
As an example, the paper revealed that one district supposedly had a debt limit of $16 million but last year reached $50 million, as there was no legal curb on its spending.
The problem isn’t just laid at the doorstep of state Democrats, either, as one bill in the state legislature filed by Republican House Leader Tom Cross allowed a district near his home to float $450 million in bonds without having the debt count toward its borrowing limit.
Another district, Ford Heights District 169, borrowed a whopping ten times more than its supposed borrowing limit.
Of the nearly $20 billion in debt statewide, the Chicago Public Schools account for a huge chunk totaling at least $6.3 billion in overages.
Yet, despite the massive overspending, teachers unions in many districts want more. Recently the Chicago Teachers Union launched an illegal one-day strike demanding raises and higher spending in the Windy City.
The strike was such an outrage to city officials that Chicago Public Schools chief Forrest Claypool vowed teachers would not be paid for missing the school day.

The golden age of the left-wing millennial media bubble appears to be drawing to a close. If Breitbart’s soaring traffic is anything to go by, the next generation of web users are demanding more substance behind headlines, fewer politically correct witch-hunts, and less barmy left-wing bias. Or they might just prefer our fonts.
