*BTK Serial Killer-
‘I Have a Lot of Feelings’
for My Victims:
Confessed serial killer Dennis Rader, also known as theBTK Killer for his “bind, torture, kill” signature, says a “demon” within him drove him to kill 10 people in Wichita between 1974 and 1991.

In a new Oxygen documentary called Snapped: Notorious BTK Serial Killer, Rader can be heard telling a local news reporter about the “high” of killing in a previously unheard interview given right after he confessed to the murders in 2005. “I personally think, and I know it’s not very Christian, but I actually think it’s a demon that’s within me,” he toldKAKE-TV reporter Larry Hatteberg.

“At some point and time, it entered me when I was young. And it basically controlled me,” he said. Asked about his victims, Rader said, “I mean, I have a lot of feelings for them. I guess it’s more of an achievement for this object in the hunt. Or sort of more of a high, I guess.”

Rader, who managed to evade police for three decades, also previously admitted to having plans to kill an 11th victim, whom he said he planned to hang upside down in her home before he was caught. He was arrested in 2005 and is now serving 10 consecutive life sentences in a Kansas prison.

*Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Founder and President, Urges People to
Pay Attention to the Impending Massacre in Idlib, Syria:
The American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) calls for people of conscience to pay attention to and shed every light possible on what experts across the region are predicting to be an impending massacre in the town of Idlib in Syria.

“The military killing machine of Bashar Assad and his regime is planning to obliterate the town and trap, torture, and starve its inhabitants under the pretense of finishing off the few remaining jihadi groups that remain holed up there after reportedly escaping other battle arenas in Syria into Idlib,” Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser warns.

Many are reporting that the Syrian civil war is entering its last phase and that this battle between the regime and the jihadis in Idlib may be the last one of this over seven-year civil war. Lost in this battle will be the majority of the inhabitants of Idlib which are likely to be far beyond anything resembling collateral damage but actually the intended mass targets of humanity which the genocidal Assad regime seeks to punish.

Jasser continues, “The over 600,000 dead and 10 million Syrian citizens displaced since 2011 are testimony to what happens to those who dared to question the fascist tyranny of Bashar Assad and ask for the end of Syrian Ba’athism.”

“We call upon people of conscience in the media, government, academia, and human rights activists to immediately bring attention to what is happening in Syria.” Dr. Jasser concludes, “History will judge us as to what we did before, during, and after the Idlib massacre.”

*WAKE (THE HELL) UP!–READ LBN EXAMINER:
In this day of spin, parsing, plausible deniability and partisan media, it’s hard— to not only separate truth from lies, but to separate precision from hyperbole. Some talking heads and television personalities are so vicious and hateful that practically every statement is over the top, not meant to inform but incite.

Many of our politicians of today are little more than human tape loops, repeating the same tired rhetoric, as predictable as the sunrise and as informative as experiencing somebody having a gas attack.

*EXAMINER–HISTORY: 1939
The Gleiwitz Incident
In 1939, Nazi forces staged an attack on a German radio station. They shot a well-known Polish sympathizer and planted his body at the scene, reporting the attack as the work of Polish saboteurs.

The attack was part of a Nazi propaganda campaign calledOperation Himmler, which involved a series of staged incidents intended to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany and provide a basis for the invasion of Poland.

*EXAMINER–MEDIA INSIDER:
A new study about Google News shows that while everyone gets the same results, five liberal news organizations “alone” made up 49 percent of the total recommendations from the respective experiments.

The five were The New York TimesCNNPoliticoThe Washington Post and HuffPost. The study, written by Columbia University PhD candidate Efrat Nechushtai and University of Oregon Shirley Papé, Chair in Emerging Media, and Seth Lewis, set to be published in the journal “Computers in Human Behavior,” stated only 14 news organizations “made up 79% of the total number of news recommendations suggested to searchers.”

*EXAMINER–COMMENTARY by Thomas L. Friedman:
America, we all know, won the Cold War. Our values and economic system proved superior to Russia’s. But what is at stake in the 2018 midterms is who is going to win the post-Cold War.

Yes, that question is back on the table. Because what we are seeing in the behavior of Trump and his toadies in the G.O.P.is the beginnings of the Russification of American politics.Vladimir Putin could still win the post-Cold War.

The reality star and performer curated 14 must-have styles for fall that reflect her notoriously flashy style for less. Her picks range in price from $40 to $50 and include multiple booties, pumps and over-the-knee boots.

Girardi notoriously revealed that she spends $40,000 a month on hair, makeup, costumes and more to create her Erika Jaynestage persona, so a pair of shoes for 100 times cheaper is certainly a deal.
