PARIS (AP) — A resurgence of anti-police violence has emerged in the long-troubled towns around Paris, signs that lawlessness still simmers in French urban hotspots that exploded in three weeks of rioting in 2005.
Violence on Saturday night in Chanteloup-les-Vignes and recent flare-ups in other tough neighborhoods west of Paris have not matched the intensity or destructiveness of the unrest that spread to hundreds of towns in 2005. But French authorities are alarmed because the violence appears pre-planned, with ambushes deliberately set to target police.
Police union officials suspect that rival gangs from different tough neighborhoods are competing for bragging rights in their attacks and are reveling in the media coverage they’re generating, even egging each other on in social media.
The name of the whistleblower at the heart of the Trump impeachment proceedings is regarded an open secret around DC, however the name doing the rounds on the internet has remained out mainstream media.
From what the American public have been told the whistleblower fits the description of Eric Ciaramella. Democrats have this week blocked Republicans from asking any questions about him and plan to redact his name from all deposition transcripts.
Ciaramella is a democrat who previously worked for Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, He has been a vocal critic of President Trump, and assisted in beginning the Russian “collusion” campaign against him.
On Thursday, Democrats plan a House vote on new impeachment-inquiry rules that would give Republicans for the first time the ability to call their own witnesses. Only, their requests must first be approved by the Democrats. So there is a good chance the whistleblower, perhaps the most important witness of all, will remain protected from critical examination.

Communist authorities destroyed a 3,000-seat megachurch over the weekend, using a large excavator to tear apart the building as members and citizens watched helplessly, according to China Aid.
The large building – which resembled many large church buildings in the United States and was topped with a spire and cross – was located in the province of Anhui, which rests in the eastern part of the country and has about 60 million residents.
Un Funking believable
Opponents of President Trump will gather next week to perform an occult ritual to bind the President and his administration. It is believed thousands will participate in the Halloween ritual.
The ritual has been regularly performed since the President’s inauguration. And those who do it believe the impeachment proceedings are evidence of their success. “I’m willing to go on record and say it’s working,” said Michael Hughes, who came up with the ritual.
Thousand of people all over the country and across the globe perform the ritual during every waning crescent moon. But with Halloween more people are expected to participate.
Karen Tibbits-Williams, a New Zealand-based witch said the purpose for the ritual was “to stop the harm” Trump’s administration is doing.
“I’ve seen for myself, many times over, the power and effectiveness of magick. My confidence in the power and efficacy of our Binding — and the effect which it is having — is absolute. I don’t ‘believe’ that it works … I know it does,” she said.
Witchcraft is on the rise in the US: from 8,000 in 1990 to around 340,000 in 2008. However a survey in 2014 suggested those practising Wicca to be 1.5 million.

A study carried out by Statistics Sweden has indicated that migrant unemployment rates are sky high and that social welfare services are being disproportionately relied on by low-skilled migrants from the Middle East and North Africa, Aftonbladet reports.
The study examined statistics on how migrants who came in 2015 and after, who today have permanent residence permits, are sustaining themselves economically. What the study found was shocking.
Artists and fashion designers are coming up with novel ways to stay private in public
Emily Roderick, 23, and her cohorts in “The Dazzle Club” walked around the British capital last week with blue, red and black stripes painted across their faces in an effort to escape the watchful eye of facial-recognition cameras.
The artists took their silent stroll through the city’s King’s Cross area hoping their bold make-up would act as camouflage and confuse the cameras.
“We’re hiding in plain sight,” Roderick told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, explaining that bright colours and dark shades of make-up are known to hamper a camera’s ability to accurately recognise faces.
In Hong Kong, for example, protesters against a bill that would have allowed people to be sent to mainland China for trial have sought to avoid surveillance by wearing masks and dressing in black.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York added $63.5 billion to the financial system Monday, using the market for repurchase agreements, or repo, to relieve funding pressure in money markets.

Ron Paul is warning negative interest rates will crush the global economy.
The former Republican congressman from Texas believes the U.S. won’t be the exception.
“We will join the rest of them and go to total negative rates in hopes that that will be the solution,” he told CNBC’s “Futures Now” on Thursday. “We’ve never had as many currencies in negative interest rates. $17 trillion worth of bonds [are] in negative interest rates. It’s never existed before. And, that’s a bubble. So, we’re in the biggest bond bubble in history, and it’s going to burst.”
