Blood-drinking Florida Senate candidate barred from Canada over neo-Nazi ties

Published

on

A U.S. Senate candidate who previously made headlines for admitting to drinking goat’s blood says he was prohibited from entering Canada.

Augustus Invictus, a Libertarian candidate hoping to fill the Senate seat vacated by Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, said he was blocked from attending a Vancouver speaking engagement because of his affiliation with neo-Nazis, according to FloridaPolitics.com.

“Canadian Border Service then spent 3.5 hours investigating me,” Invictus complained in a press release. “I was interrogated about my affiliation with neo-Nazis, about the charges of Fascism, and about allegations of racism.”

Invictus, a 32-year-old lawyer, represented the former head of the neo-Nazi group American Front in 2014. His client, Marcus Faella, had been sentenced to six months in jail on domestic terrorism charges.

“I was a politician traveling to give a speech and yet they treated me like a gang member trying to run guns across the border,” Invictus continued. “They said that no good could come of my entry into the country because violence would certainly ensue.”

Invictus claimed that “communists” had threatened the event he planned to speak at. Canadian officials said allowing him into the country could cause violence.

“So I was prevented from making a speech because communists made threats of violence against me – and that seems to me to be ass backward. Clearly the Canadian government values the right of violent protest for communists more than they value the right of free speech for all.”

Last year, Invictus admitted to sacrificing a goat “to the god of the wilderness” and drinking its blood. The news broke after the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida resigned to call attention to his bizarre candidacy.

WATCH: CNN uses video to bust Trump for lying and stealing credit for veterans program signed by Obama

Published

on

Reacting to Donald Trump's abrupt departure from his Saturday press conference after he was pressed by a CBS White House correspondent Paula Reid for lying and taking credit for a veterans bill signed into law by former President Barack Obama, CNN's Victor Blackwell shared clips of the former president announcing the signing in 2014 and Trump attempting to steal credit yesterday.

According to Blackwell, "One of President Trump's go-to lies is his role in passing Veterans Choice. You saw it at the end of the news conference when he walked away. Well that was when he was faced with a question why he said that he passed Choice and Accountability for the V.A."

Nagasaki marks 75 years since atomic bombing

Published

on

The Japanese city of Nagasaki on Sunday commemorated the 75th anniversary of its destruction by a US atomic bomb, with its mayor and the head of the United Nations warning against a nuclear arms race.

Nagasaki was flattened in an atomic inferno three days after Hiroshima -- twin nuclear attacks that rang in the nuclear age and gave Japan the bleak distinction of being the only country to be struck by atomic weapons.

Survivors, their relatives and a handful of foreign dignitaries attended a remembrance ceremony in Nagasaki where they called for world peace.

Participants offered a silent prayer at 11:02 am (0202 GMT), the time the second and last nuclear weapon used in wartime was dropped over the city.
