White nationalist contacted about Boston rally

Boston mayor Marty Walsh gave a stern warning ahead of the rally.

"We don't want hate groups to come to our city or state", he added.

In the aftermath of last week's violence in Charlottesville, Va., the Yankees are taking extra precautions due to being in Boston during Saturday's "Free Speech" rally and expected counterdemonstrations at and near Boston Common. Kyle Chapman, who described himself on Facebook as a "proud American nationalist", said he will attend. "The courts have made it abundantly clear, they have the right to gather no matter how repugnant their views are".

"Certainly we recognize everyone's First Amendment right to freedom of speech, but we're also dedicated to freedom from fear", said Allison Silberberg, mayor of Alexandria, Virginia, a city near Washington, D.C., that has long struggled with what to do about a Confederate statue in the middle of a major road. "I think they'll think again about coming here".

"Prevail upon elected officials, business leaders, students and parents to hold their tongues and stop speaking damaging words.Violence tore through Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend when white supremacists clashed with counter-protestors and then an OH man allegedly plowed his auto into a group of people, killing Heather Heyer, who was there to protest the racists". "Let's not speak about bigotry, racism".

Saudi king orders Qatar border be reopened for hajj pilgrims
He ordered that private jets belonging to Saudi airlines be sent to Doha airport "to bring all Qatari pilgrims on his expenses". They accused Qatar of destabilizing the region by supporting "terrorists, extremist and sectarian organizations".

"Ignoring a problem has never solved it", Cannon said in a phone interview.

According to the "Fight Supremacy" Facebook page, as many as 14,000 people said they were planning to attend the counter-protest-dwarfing the number of people expected at the alt-right event. Organizers expect between 20,000 to 30,000 counterprotesters to swamp the Common.

The Boston Common is heavily cordoned off, with barricades set up to separate the two groups.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans has promised that authorities have a plan in place to keep rallygoers from mixing it up with protesters.

More than 500 police officers were estimated to be there. Transit police will increase their presence at subway stations in the area.

Tourism to North Korea booming despite nuclear threat
Yet steel and aluminum industries are hardly weak points for China , where most production is sold at home. On Tuesday, Washington announced preliminary sanctions against imports of Chinese aluminum foil.

Backpacks were to be searched and weapons, and objects that could be used as weapons - including glass containers and flag poles - were to be banned.

The nearby Swan Boats in the Boston Garden will not be operating, among other tourist attractions. Streets around the Common are also being blocked to vehicle traffic.

The rally, which claims to be a "free speech" gathering, is supposedly open to all comers. Walsh noted it's a spot where Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King Jr., and President Barack Obama have spoken.

Boston isn't the only city preparing for such a rally. The event had been scheduled to end at 2 p.m.

Ezekiel Elliott to serve six-game suspension
Needless to say, Twitter has plenty to say regarding a suspension more severe than what had been given to documented wife beaters. In March, he faced major backlash after a video surfaced, showing how he exposed a woman's breasts during the Dallas , Texas, St.
