Neo-Nazi website Stormfront close to shutting down as founder’s wife tires of paying hate site’s bills

Published

on

The notorious hate site Stormfront appears to be running on fumes as its former Klansman founder announces the online forum will restrict access to “sustaining members” and take other steps to cut costs.

Don Black, a former Ku Klux Klan member and convicted felon, has complained for years about the costs associated with running the white supremacist forum and threatened to close before, but dwindling donations may finally drive the site out of business, reported Hatewatch.

“I appreciate everybody’s support. But it’s that time of month again, when the big, scary bills hit,” Black wrote. “Our contributions have once again totaled less than $2,000, which is not enough to cover our basic server and radio bills, and this month we no longer have enough personal money to make up the difference.”

The site will be restricted to members who donate at least $5 a month, and Black will archive and shut down Stormfront’s main server Friday due to a “financial crisis.”

Stormfront’s domain was seized after the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017, after civil rights lawyers filed a notice with Network Solution, which registered its domain.

Black founded Stormfront in 1995 after learning basic computer programming while serving a three-year federal prison term for attempting to overthrow the government of Dominica with other white supremacists in 1981.

The site was central to organized white supremacy for more than two decades, and a 2014 study by the Southern Poverty Law Center found forum members had murdered nearly 100 people in the previous five years, including 77 killed by Anders Breivik in Norway in 2011.

Stormfront has seen its influence wane as younger “alt-right” white supremacists gravitate toward sites such as the Daily Stormer, the Right Stuff and social media platforms, but Black’s site still remains popular with older racists.

Black’s wife Chloe had been paying the site’s bills in recent years and “working full time past retirement age to help support this site,” one user wrote this week.

The site’s founder said the Stormfront Radio program would continue, but he said this week he could no longer afford to run the site and canceled his upcoming appearance at a League of the South conference in Alabama to celebrate David Duke’s 50th year of white supremacist activism.

Informal Trump legal advisor urges potential witnesses to ‘spit in the face’ of House committee chairs

Published

Joseph E diGenova

On Monday, Politico reported that House Democrats, enraged at the White House's blanket use of executive privilege to stonewall all attempts to call witnesses in the investigation of possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, are weighing the idea of calling Trump associates who have never worked in the White House, including former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Trump campaign chairman Corey Lewandowski.

But according to Joseph DiGenova, a former federal prosecutor and Fox News commentator who represented two witnesses in former special counsel Robert Mueller's probe and gives Trump informal legal advice, these witnesses should just "spit in the face" of investigators.

Published

Donald Trump Jr. thinks his father has been treated worse than any human in American history -- including slaves, Native Americans and presidents who have been assassinated while in office.

After President Donald Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that "there's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as I have been," Trump Jr. jumped on Twitter to defend his father and simply said that "he's right."

He’s right. https://t.co/ZRlenHkXrq

Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’

Published

on

President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.

The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."

Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
