Hillary has face botoxed, or something. Looks freakish.


Aesthetic expert Dr Ross Perry, founder of www.cosmedics.co.uk, said Hillary has been 'genetically blessed' with good skin - but claimed it could also be a result of Botox, injectable dermal fillers and Blepharoplasty.
[.]
'Her forehead looks particularly smooth, which would suggest Botox has been administered in the forehead, frown line and around the eye area, as there appears to be minimal crows feet.
Yeah, well - Dr. Perry has to say Hillary is "genetically blessed" if he's averse to tragic accidents.

Botox? Maybe. Might also have been one of those procedures where they take fat from one part of the body and inject it into another part of the body.

In her case, the donor fat is from her cankles.


Bernie Sanders wants government-owned broadband.


We've long noted how community broadband networks are often an organic response to the expensive, slow, or just-plain unavailable service that's the direct product of a broken telecom market and regulatory capture. While you'll occasionally see some deployment duds if the business models aren't well crafted, studies have shown such local networks (there are 750 and counting now in the States) offer cheaper, faster service than many incumbents. Chattanooga's EPB, for example, was rated the best ISP in America last year by Consumer Reports.
[.]
Enter Bernie Sanders, whose new broadband plan was released last week and appears to have been cobbled together from the collected nightmares of AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast executives. The plan would not only restore the FCC's net neutrality authority and the agency's authority over ISPs in general, but it would restore the FCC's broadband privacy rules scuttled in 2017 by telecom lobbyists. It would also ban arbitrary and unnecessary broadband usage caps and overage fees, and ban the sneaky fees ISPs use to covertly jack up the advertised price post sale.

But the plan takes some extra time to highlight how a Sanders administration would embrace community broadband, including the elimination of protectionist state laws, and the doling out of $150 billion to be used largely toward building alternatives to the private sector telecom status quo:

    "Municipalities across the country running their own internet services have proved they can deliver high-quality service at a fraction of the price of established monopolies. Cities can run their own networks just like a water or electric utility or build out an open access network to allow multiple providers to compete on price and service, rather than one or two conglomerates gouging customers and setting their own prices. Bernie believes it’s time to stop relying on profit-focused corporations to get to universal broadband. Bernie will provide the necessary funding for states, cities, and co-ops to build out their own broadband networks, and ensure all households are connected by the end of his first term."

Needless to say, the telecom sector isn't going to much like any of this.
[.]
The proposal isn't without its problems. Several economists versed in telecom and media tell me that the proposals to retroactively break up giants like Comcast NBC Universal and AT&T Time Warner are little more than pipe dreams that would be logistical nightmares in actual practice. And the Sanders camp also oddly opposes so-called "one touch make ready" rules (which allow any qualified third party to move pole equipment instead of just incumbent ISPs) despite widespread support of such proposals (unions tell me "one touch" poses a safety and security risk, but those claims are hotly contested).
Is there any private industry that this rapidly aging, anti-Charity, rape-porn fantasy writing Communist doesn't think the government should own, run and operate?

And Big Tech likes to think Liberals are their friends and allies.

20 years ago, Nadler whined about impeachment based on partisan politics. Now, it's different.


House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-Golden Corral) warned of the dangers of partisan impeachment efforts during former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment proceedings, cautioning that it would “produce decisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come.”

Nadler adamantly opposed a partisan impeachment effort during Clinton’s scandal, emphatically warning his colleagues that they should not impeach a president without the “overwhelming consensus” of the American people and stressing that “an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other” will lead to bitterness and divisiveness and cause people to question “the very legitimacy of our political institutions.”

“And we must not do so without an overwhelming consensus of the American people. There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other,” Nadler said[.]
[.]
“In 1998, President Clinton physically gave his blood,” Nadler proclaimed. “President Trump, by contrast, has refused to produce a single document and directed every witness not to testify.

As Breitbart News noted, “Clinton provided a sample of his DNA to independent counsel Kenneth Starr as he attempted to back up his claim that he had not, in fact, had ‘sexual relations’ with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.”

However, the blood sample ultimately tied Clinton to the dried semen on Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress “to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty.”

Like Rabbits. Hunter Biden's wife is pregnant.


Hunter Biden’s wife is pregnant and in her second trimester as her husband is locked in a nasty paternity case with his apparent baby’s mother, according to the Daily Mail.

Biden’s wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, was spotted with a baby bump during an errand run around Los Angeles on Thursday, the tabloid said.

The news comes as Lunden Roberts, a 28-year-old stripper, is demanding child support for her 16-month-old baby, who was fathered by Biden, according to the results of a DNA test revealed in court documents. Roberts filed a paternity lawsuit in May, alleging the pair first met at a Washington, DC, gentleman’s club that she previously employed.

‘Penis fish’ wash onto California beach.


Thousands of “pulsing penis fish” have washed ashore on a California beach, as seen in jarring photos that are raising eyebrows due to the creature’s phallic shape.

The quirky marine life is officially called fat innkeeper worms (Urechis caupo), and an expert writes for Bay Nature that he believes a recent storm in the Drakes Beach area (My beach! My beach! - DD) is the reason so many of them mysteriously appeared on the beach.

Ivan Parr, a biologist from the Western Section of the Wildlife Society, spotted them Dec. 6 and explains that the 10-inch fat innkeeper worm typically lives underwater, burrowing in mud or sand, but the storm likely carried them ashore.

Former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) says the “entire world is watching” the response of President Donald Trump and his chief strategist Steve Bannon to the recent wave of anti-Semitic attacks across America.

Sanders describes himself as “alarmed” by the recent rise of anti-Semitic attacks. Jewish Community Centers across America recently received bomb threats, while a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia was vandalized.

In a speech to J Street, a liberal nonprofit hostile to Israel, Sanders said that “the attacks must be condemned at the highest levels of government.”

I hope very much that President Trump and his political adviser Mr. Bannon understand that the entire world is watching, that it is imperative that their voices be loud and clear in condemning anti-Semitism,” Sanders said.

He also attacked Trump for failing to mention the word “Jew” in his statement on Holocaust Memorial Day, calling it “rather extraordinary.”

Harvey Weinstein shows up for court using a walker. Poor, fragile Harvey.


Disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein is nearing a $25 million settlement that would resolve most of the civil suits against him and his board of directors stemming from dozens of sexual harassment and assault allegations, according to a report.

But not all the plaintiffs are on board with the proposed deal, which still hasn’t been approved by judges. Weinstein also faces criminal charges and is still set to stand trial in New York starting Jan. 6 on five rape and sexual assault charges.
[.]
But there are signs that the deal is already in jeopardy.

Variety reported that at least four Weinstein plaintiffs are not participating in the settlement, and at least three of them are expected to oppose the deal.

Actress Ashley Judd, who was among the first women to publicly accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment in the initial 2017 Times article, isn’t participating in the proposed settlement.

Attorney Thomas Giuffra, who represents plaintiff Alexandra Canosa, has publicly blasted the proposed settlement, telling Variety that plaintiffs are being pressured to accept the deal by another attorney representing a group of Weinstein accusers.

Giuffra told Variety that under the settlement, insurers will give $500,000 to Weinstein for every plaintiff who does not accept the deal, as a way of washing their hands of him. As a result, Weinstein would stand to reap at least $1 million in the settlement.

That is so morally wrong,” Giuffra told the trade magazine.
[.]
The Oscar-winning producer appeared frail in court and used a walker to move around. His attorney explained that Weinstein will shortly undergo back surgery to treat an injury sustained in a car accident.
The timeliness of frailty and the need of some sort of surgery prior to courtroom appearances among alleged sex-offenders, rapists, traffickers and abusers is amazingly coincidental. Or...maybe not. It is Teh Showbiz.

Hillary Clinton cheers impeachment, says Trump ‘waging war’ against democracy. It was Hillary who said not accepting the results of the election is a direct threat to our democracy.

MSN: Hillary Clinton cheers impeachment, says Trump ‘waging war’ against democracy.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who famously lost the 2016 election to now-President Trump, swiftly gave her public support to articles of impeachment against her political rival after they were announced by House Democrats Tuesday morning.

Clinton called the impeachment push necessary for defending democracy.

"We must defend our democracy, and the painful truth is that the occupant of the Oval Office is waging war against it," Clinton tweeted.

Clinton posted the comment along with a video of House Democrats discussing plans to move forward with impeachment articles alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Also known as, "I Can't Get Over Losing Syndrome."

Hillary Clinton, and those who don't accept the results of the 2016 presidential election are a Direct Threat to Our Democracy. Obama also told us there is no way Russia "could even" influence our elections. They told us this not all that long ago. 'Member?

Biden Baby Mama wants some money. Hunter is evasive.


Lunden Roberts, the apparent mother of Hunter Biden’s love child, is reportedly seeking financial information regarding his time as a board member of Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy giant at the center of corruption allegations against him and his father, former Vice President Joe Biden.
[.]
Roberts also requested that the younger Biden confirm whether he or an “entity owned, controlled or under your direction or supervision” received money from a Chinese national or entity for investment activities, the documents reportedly say. The Daily Mail also says Roberts made a total of 47 requests from Hunter, many of which were redacted.

Last week, a judge criticized both Biden and Roberts for failing to provide transparency regarding their finances and requested an affidavit of financial means covering five years from both parties.

Dad and three bystanders bodyslam a carjacker after he 'tries to steal SUV with three children and their mom inside'.

Daily Mail: Dad and three bystanders bodyslam a carjacker in his underwear after he 'tries to steal a SUV with THREE children and their mom inside'.
A dramatic cellphone video recorded by bystanders shows a California father and several Good Samaritans drag a carjacker from a family's SUV carrying three children and tackle him.

According to a press release form the Stockton Police Department, at around 5pm on Sunday, officers were called to the 7900 block of North El Dorado Street for a report of an attempted carjacking.

Responding officers arrived to find a group of people holding down the suspect, identified as 22-year-old Elijah Cervantes, and took him into custody.

Joe Biden Wants to Ban 9mm Pistols.


"Why should we allow people to have military-style weapons including pistols with 9mm bullets and can hold 10 or more rounds?", [said Biden].
[.]
In targeting 9mm pistols, Biden has called for a ban on one of the most popular firearms in America.
[.]
...Shooting Industry reported that 9mm caliber pistols are the most commonly produced pistol and have been for many years. In 2017 alone, there were more than 1.7 million 9mm pistols produced in the U.S. Cumulatively there are tens of millions of 9mm pistols in the hands of law-abiding Americans.

The 9mm pistol is the choice of the nation’s leading civilian law enforcement agency, the FBI. Moreover, 9mm pistols are used by countless other federal, state, and local civilian law enforcement agencies. Biden alluded to the 9mm handgun’s military applications, but these agencies are not tasked with waging war on the public, but rather defending the public. This defensive application is the same reason that millions of Americans have chosen a 9mm pistol as their self-defense firearm.

Marianne Williamson retweets fake news/satire that Charles Manson pardoned by President Trump. Then she deletes tweet!

DEM presidential wanna-be Marianne Williamson pwnd by Satire.

Marianne Williamson was a favorite of many on the Right because she was so very entertaining. She didn’t even TRY to hide the fact that she’s straight-up loopy.

Putting it out there like that deserves a little bit of respect.

It doesn’t make her any less LOOPY, though. And she gave us yet another reminder of why we don’t actually take her seriously.

    This never happened. Williamson just tweeted this.

Scorpions on a plane.

Scorpions, not Snakes.

A passenger on board a domestic United Airlines flight was stung several times by a scorpion, and had to be treated by medical staff upon landing.

An image of the scorpion on board Thursday's flight from San Francisco to Atlanta was first published by TMZ, which reported how the unnamed female passenger started feeling a stinging sensation on her leg.

When she went to the bathroom, it got worse and she saw the creature fall from her pant leg after she was stung several times, according to USA Today.

The creature ran along the floor and caught by cabin crew, TMZ reported.
[.]
"The customer was transported to a local hospital. We have been in contact with our customer to ensure her well-being."
[.]
The airline would not say how the scorpion got on board or whether there would be an investigation into the incident.

USA Today noted that this was at least the third time this year that a scorpion has made its way onto a flight.

In February, a passenger filmed a12-inch long dark black arachnid as it crawled out an overhead bin on a Lion Air flight to Indonesia.
[.]
A month later, a scorpion stung a passenger on an Air Transat flight from Toronto to Calgary, CTV News reported.

In 2017, a business class passenger on a United Airlines flight from Houston to Calgary was reportedly stung by a scorpion as he was eating lunch.

Richard Bell's wife Linda told CNN that the creature fell from an overhead bin and landed on his hair, saying, "As he was grabbing it by the tail it stung him.

Pyramid-shaped asteroid VH5 2019 will not hit us tomorrow, says NASA.


A 427-foot pyramid-shaped asteroid is due to fly by Earth on Sunday, scientists say.

According to  the Centre for Near-Earth Object Studies at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the object, called VH5 2019, will harmlessly fly past around 4.27 million miles from our planet at a speed of 6.1 miles per second.

At 187ft by 426.5ft, the asteroid is “pyramid-shaped" and almost as large as the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The asteroid is one of five due to fly past Earth over the weekend, all at safe distances. (Asteroids are assholes, aren't they? - DD)

It comes after a gigantic 2,000 asteroid flew past Earth last month.
[.]
In 2017, an asteroid the size of a skyscraper called 2010 NY65 flew past around eight times the distance between the Earth and the moon.

Nasa launched a new office in 2016 called The Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO).

This was created to keep track of asteroids that come too close to Earth.

A recent study suggests that over the last 290 million years, asteroids have been crashing into Earth at triple their previous rate.
Great Giza! A study "suggests". We should probably throw tons of tax-payer money into more similar studies. We can never have too many studies that "suggest", can we?


I know VH5 won't hit us. I didn't buy a lottery ticket.

Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 - 78 years ago.


National Day: Day of Remembrance.

On Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, the American Army and Navy base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy. The attack came as a surprise to the American Army and Navy and lead to great losses of life and equipment. More than 2000 American citizens were killed and more than 1000 were injured. The Americans also lost a large proportion of their battle ships and nearly 200 aircraft that were stationed in the Pacific region.
Mercury News (via Archive): Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day — just three survivors of the USS Arizona remain.
The three remaining USS Arizona survivors are Don Stratton, Lou Conter and Ken Potts.

Biden calls Iowa voter a "damn liar" and "fat" in deranged meltdown during question about Hunter and Burisma.


At a New Hampton, Iowa, town hall, a voter asked, “We all know Trump has been messing around in Ukraine over there holding there foreign aid for them to come up saying they are going to investigate you. We all know about that … But you, on the other hand, sent your son over there to get a job and work for a gas company that he had no experience with gas or nothing in order to get access for the president. So you are selling access to the president just like he was.”

Biden said, “You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true. And no one has ever said that.”

The voter added, “I see it on the TV.”

Biden said, “You see it on the TV. No, I know you do. And by the way, I’m not sedentary. I get up … Let him go. Let him go. Look, the reason I’m running is because I’ve been around a long time, and I know more than most people know, and I can get things done. That’s why I’m running. You want to check my shape on let’s do push-ups together, let’s run, let’s do whatever you want to do number one. Number two no one has said my son did anything wrong, and I did not on any occasion—”

The voter said, “I didn’t say you were doing anything wrong.”

Biden said, “You said I set my son up to work at an oil company. Isn’t that want you said? Get your words straight jack.”

The voter said, “That’s what I hear on MSNBC.”

Biden said, “You don’t hear that on MSNBC.”

The voter said, “The hell I do.”

Biden said, “Look, I’m not going to get in an argument with you.”

The voter said, “I don’t want to either.”

Biden said, “Well yeah you do but look, fat, here’s the deal—”

The voter added, “It looks like you don’t have anymore backbone than Trump does.”
NY Post: Meet the man who says Biden has a ‘wet noodle for a backbone’.
The Iowa man who challenged Joe Biden during a campaign event on Thursday told The Post he had no regrets about the heated exchange.

“I’m positive 90% of the people there didn’t know about his son working on the board in Ukraine. I wanted it brought out there,” said 83-year-old Merle Gorman, referring to Biden’s son Hunter’s job at a Ukrainian gas company.
[.]
Gorman, who said he is a Marine Corps veteran and retired farmer, went to the event because it was taking place a couple of blocks from his home, and was spurred to ask about Hunter’s Ukraine dealings after hearing the other questions from the crowd.

All the others were softballs questions, they might as well have been asking him what color the chandelier was in the vice president’s office,” Gorman said.

I wish he had explained in a decent tone of voice why he got his son in that position over there and in my opinion he had no business whatsoever sticking his nose over there.”
[.]
Gorman, who said he voted for Barack Obama, said he liked Elizabeth Warren and would also gladly see Pete Buttigieg, Cory Booker or Andrew Yang on the ticket.

“I would love any of them except Joe Biden,” he said. “He’s been there all his life …”

Pamela Karlan ‘should be ashamed’ of her Barron Trump punch line at the impeachment hearings.


Breitbart: Matt Gaetz schools Pamela Karlan for attacking Barron Trump.
When Karlan tried to cut him off, saying, “When the president calls — ,” Gaetz immediately shut her down. “Excuse me, you don’t get to interrupt me on this time.”

He then blasted the joke earlier in the hearing, where she invoked the president’s teenage son, Barron.

“Let me also suggest that when you invoke the president’s son’s name here, when you try to make a little joke out of referencing Barron Trump that does not lend credibility to your argument, it makes you look mean,” he said. “It makes you look like you’re attacking someone’s family — the minor child of the president of the United States.”

He then closed by asking witnesses if they could raise their hand if any of them had “personal knowledge of a single material fact in the Schiff report.”

His question was met with blank stares and silence.
Market Watch: Melania Trump says Pamela Karlan ‘should be ashamed’ of her Barron punch line at the impeachment hearings.
Stanford constitutional law professor Pamela S. Karlan went viral during the impeachment hearings on Wednesday for tearing into Republican Rep. Doug Collins, and telling him that she was “insulted” by his suggestion that she hadn’t read the witness transcripts. What’s more, she stated that everything she has read “tells me that when President Trump invited, indeed demanded, foreign involvement in our upcoming election.”

Then she made this play on words:

While the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron’: Prof. Karlan uses the Trump family to outline the Constitution’s rule that there can’t be titles of nobility.
[.]
First lady Melania Trump, whose “Be Best” initiative advocates against bullying, tweeted that Karlan “should be ashamed.”

    A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.

Trump 2020 national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany released the following statement in response on Wednesday afternoon:

Pamela Karlan thought she was being clever and going for laughs, but she instead reinforced for all Americans that Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to their hatred of everything related to President Trump. Hunter Biden is supposedly off-limits according to liberals, but a 13-year-old boy is fair game. Disgusting.”
Disgusting behavior from Democrats. We expect it, we know it's coming. It's never a matter of 'if' - only 'when' and 'how much'.

Man mistakes feral coyote for dog.

The story states, "feral" coyote as opposed to...

The Independent (via Yahoo): Man crashes car into dog, drives it to safety then discovers it is a coyote.
A man who bundled a canine into the back seat of his car after striking the animal on his commute has said he was surprised to discover it was not a tame dog – but a wild coyote.

Eli Boroditsky had been driving to his night shift at a cheese factory in Manitoba, Canada, when what appeared to be a dog sprinted across the road and into his car.

The animal landed in a ditch after the collision, prompting Mr Boroditsky to get out and look for it with a small torch.

“It is amazing how docile it was,” Mr Boroditsky said of the semi-conscious canine. “I was petting it.”

Fearing for the creature’s safety if it had been left in the open overnight he decided to leave the animal in his car.

However, on arriving to work he was duly informed the animal he had saved was no dog at all – but a feral coyote.

Speaking to Canadian broadcaster CBC, he added: “I thought it was a German shepherd or a husky… I didn’t think it was a wild animal.

“I was hesitant to leave it lying there because — thinking that it was a dog and there might be wild animals around — it might get hurt.”

After calling animal welfare groups throughout the night he finished his shift to find the animal had moved to the front seat of his car.

A Manitoba Wildlife conservation officer arrived shortly after 9am to take the young female coyote to the nearby Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre.

It had suffered a traumatic blow to the head and cuts to its legs and face.

The animal is due for release after a week or two of care.

A centre spokesperson wrote on Instagram: “The coyote seems in relatively good condition but is still under observations for the time being[.]"

A handsome animal that really doesn't resemble a German shepherd or Huskie. Does it?

Cory Booker blames DNC for lack of diversity of DEM presidential candidates.

Angry Spartacus

OH HO...this is Rich!

After Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday she was ending her campaign for president, some supporters were shocked and some megadonors were frantic, trying to get their recently donated money back.

But to many — including several other presidential candidates — the immediate reaction to her departure was what it meant for the Dec. 19 Democratic debate: Namely, that the event may now have an all-white stage.

“I’m a little angry, I have to say, that we started with one of the most diverse fields in our history, giving people pride,” Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), who is among the nonwhite presidential candidates who have yet to qualify for this month’s debate, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Tuesday night. “And it’s a damn shame now that the only African American woman in this race, who has been speaking to issues that need to be brought up, is now no longer in it.”
[.]
For many critics, the question was how this historically diverse class of candidates has faded to white — at least on the national debate stage — before February’s Iowa caucuses. To Booker, part of the problem is that this cycle’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee’s qualifying rules are “preferencing millionaires and billionaires.”
 Yeah, it's the DNC's fault. Blame them. But - but - Diversity is their Strength!

Professor Karlan's address includes a number of concrete suggestions for how lawyers, law students and other concerned citizens can get involved in promoting and practicing progressive legal and policy values. Summarizing the theme of the Convention, which addressed "Democracy of the Rule of Law," Professor Karlan suggested that "we need a rule of law that's more than just a law of rules. We need laws that are just, and not just laws that satisfy the presentment clause."

Karlan also emphasized her belief that traditionally progressive groups have greater reason for patriotism than their conservative counterparts:

    "We have to seize back the high ground on patriotism and on love of our country, because we have more reason than they do to love America. The rich, pampered, prodigal, sanctimonious, incurious, white, straight sons of the powerful do pretty well everywhere in the world, and they always have." (Yes, those WHITE sons of powerful WHITE rich do rather well for themselves. Joe and Hunter Biden, the Kennedy sons, Mikey Bloomberg, the Soros sons, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, John Kerry and his son, Paul Pelosi...a nice bunch of "white privilege" there. - DD)

    "But what about us? Snarky, bisexual, Jewish women who want the freedom to say what we think, read what we want, and love who we do. I don't want to keep other people from having the great opportunities I've had here in the United States. I want other people to share them. . . ."

    "So the thing that makes America great is "We the People," and we have to remind people that we are the people. Not they, we. And so I'm inspired by Barbara Jordan, who was the first black person elected from Texas to Congress since reconstruction-as a result of the Voting Rights Act."

    Now at the Watergate Hearings, here's what she said, and it's something that we need to take to heart:

        "Earlier today, we heard the beginning of the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States, "We, the people." It is a very eloquent beginning. But when that document was completed on the seventeenth of September 1787, I was not included in that "We, the people." I felt somehow for many years that George Washington and Alexander Hamilton just left me out by mistake. But through the process of amendment, interpretation and court decision I have finally been included in "We, the people."

        "Today, I am an inquisitor; hyperbole would not be fictional and would not overstate the solemnness that I feel right now. My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total. I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution."

   "We need to feel that way too."
If someone is denying this snarky, bisexual Jewish woman the freedom to say what she thinks, what she wants to read and love who she wants, she should probably take it up with that person...or people.

Meh...every Liberal is a victim in their own mind.

It is quite prescient of her, in 2006, to identify the, "the rich, pampered, prodigal, sanctimonious, incurious, white, straight sons of the powerful do pretty well everywhere in the world, and they always have." Who knew back then she was talking about Joe and Hunter Biden and the numerous old, rich, powerful, perverse white men that so dominate the Democrat party of today and of whom so many are Democrat presidential candidates.

Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan, one of three expert witnesses called by Democrats to testify on the first day of the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry, donated $1000 to the presidential campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in July, according to to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) data.
[.]
Separately, Karlan also donated $500 to the 2020 campaign of first-term Rep. Josh Harder (D-CA), one of seven Democrats to win a Republican-held seat in the 2018 midterm elections.
[.]
In 2013, during President Barack Obama’s second term, Karlan was considered a possible Supreme Court nominee. Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams wrote at the time that Karlan “provides intellectual fuel for the most fringe elements of the progressive legal and political machine,” accusing her of “scholarly lies,” saying she “falsely attacked the Bush administration’s Justice Department for not protecting racial minorities.”

Adams concluded: “Hopefully Democrats and Republicans alike can agree that it is best to keep a dishonest academic in her position as a dishonest academic. Her corrosive and bitter worldview is best kept in the insular world of academia, where her damage can be contained to corrupting scores of would-be lawyers who don’t have a clue about who is really standing at the lectern.”
Karlan...Corrosive and bitter who provides fuel for the most fringe elements of the political Left? Oh yeah! Maybe it's because of this? It's just a guess.

"I'm not going to take any shit," says Jerry Nadler. "The New Jerry Nadler Show" premieres today!


"The Jerry Nadler Show", which proved a disaster due to the incompetence of its lead actor, Jerry Nadler, returns after being retooled. The program went on hiatus and was temporarily replaced with, "The Adam Schiff Show" which, in its pilot episode, drew a somewhat sizeable audience. Its viewership quickly dropped after its premeire.

Billed now as, "The New Jerry Nadler Show", Nadler returns playing himself, a partisan liberal suffering from a mild decline in mental stability. "There will be plenty of action, thrills and surprises. We're even looking at spin-offs," said one of the show's producers. 
-
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler had a blunt message as he privately addressed Democrats the day before his panel assumes a starring role in the impeachment inquiry.

“I’m not going to take any shit,” Nadler said in a closed-door prep session Tuesday morning — a rare cuss word from the lawyerly Manhattan Democrat that prompted some lawmakers to sit up in their chairs, according to multiple people in the room.

Nadler’s warning shot referred to likely GOP antics to try to undermine the first impeachment hearing in the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. But it wasn’t lost on Democrats that Nadler’s message could also apply to those in his own party who have closely scrutinized his role in the House's impeachment probe

While President Donald Trump may be under investigation, Nadler will be on the hot seat.

The veteran lawmaker has at times struggled to balance the competing interests and expectations of his caucus and leadership on an impeachment push that once sharply divided the party. Those internal tensions have largely faded, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her caucus unified around evidence that Trump abused his office by pressuring Ukrainian leaders for his own political gain.
[.]
Nadler allies aren’t worried.

He’s as steady as a rock,” said Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.), who sits on the Judiciary and Intelligence panels.
...As a rock...

Labrador 'Mr. Moose' attacked by multiple coyotes in Inver Grove Heights.


INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn. (FOX 9) - It’s not rare to see coyotes around Twin Cities metro neighborhoods, but a recent attack in a suburban area is raising concerns about how bold these urban coyotes are getting.

An Inver Grove Heights family says their dog “Mr. Moose” came out to a backyard as he does every morning to go the bathroom when he was attacked at the edge of the woods by coyotes.

Mr. Moose is a beloved member of the Frankot family and lately, he’s needed a little extra attention because of the attack.

“We’re still doing the antibiotic for infection and we’re still doing pain medication and we’re still cleaning ears for infection,” said Vanessa Frankot Miller.

The 12-year-old Labrador is being nursed back to health after his owners say he was attacked by more than one coyote over a week ago when they let him outside in the morning.

“I opened the door and he comes out of the woods and he was all ripped up and bleeding and said, [sic] ‘Come on, Moose. Come on, Moose.’” Frankot Miller added.

The attack nearly cost the dog his life.

The vet did say these coyotes knew what they were doing,” Frankot Miller said. “They were out there to kill. They did the jugular, the hips and the stomach. They knew what they were doing.”

The family has seen coyotes in the back of their Inver Grove Heights home before. They live in the suburbs with a wooded backyard, but they never thought a dog the size of Moose would be their prey.
There's a remedy for the problem of urban coyotes.

From The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources:
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources does not trap, shoot, or relocate coyotes. Where necessary, removal of coyotes is the responsibility of the landowner or tenant. For information on pest control contractors or trapping techniques for coyote removal, contact your local DNR Wildlife[.]
Mr. Moose is improving and feeling better.

Logs dumped in front of Oakland businesses to deter overnight car camping. Log! It's big, it's heavy, it's wood.

East Bay Times (via Archive): Mysterious logs dumped in front of Oakland businesses to deter overnight car camping.
OAKLAND — They mysteriously appeared about a year ago — dozens of logs the length of cars, plopped in front of industrial businesses in a two-block stretch along West Oakland’s Poplar Street, between West Grand Avenue and 18th Street.

If the purpose behind the logs was to drive away the homeless who parked their RVs and other vehicles there, the strategy worked for the most part.

City officials say the logs have prevented crews from cleaning up the two blocks, yet they’ve done little to get them removed:
Councilmember Lynette Gibson McElhaney said she reached out to local business owners to find out who put the logs there, but no one would tell.

The city’s Public Works Department considers the logs an “intentional obstruction of the public right of way,” which is illegal, spokesman Sean Maher said. But Public Works has not reached out to the local business owners who may be responsible.
[.]
East Bay Community Law Center attorney Osha Neumann, who represents and advocates for homeless people, wonders if the city would treat RV dwellers with the same indifference as it does the logs.

There are all kinds of rules and city ordinances about illegal dumping, but I guess it’s OK to dump and obstruct if you’re doing it to obstruct homeless people from being there,” Neumann said.

The number of people living in cars, vans and RVs in Oakland has grown dramatically, from 618 in 2017 to 1,430 in 2019, according to the city’s biennial homeless count. Many have flocked to industrial areas like Poplar after being pushed out of other parts of the city.

McElhaney said the lack of complaints about the logs has made them a low priority for her office.
[.]
Most of the logs — they appear to be from oak trees — had their branches trimmed, and some have been tagged with graffiti. At about 2 feet in diameter and 8-10 feet long, they’re big enough to require a forklift or bulldozer to move.
Yes, it's the multi-purpose Log! And...It's big! It's heavy! It's wood!

DEM Joe Sleestak drops out of the presidential race.

Awwwwwww...He was the one DEM I really liked!

DEM Joe Sleestak

Former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak on Sunday ended his long-shot 2020 presidential bid after failing to gain traction in the race for the Democratic Party's nomination.

"I want to thank you for the honor of running for President of the United States of America," Sestak said in a statement. "It has been an endeavor filled with immeasurable wisdom, passions, humor and insights to, and from, the people of America."

Sestak, who mounted unsuccessful bids for US Senate in 2010 and 2016, entered an already-crowded Democratic primary field in June hoping to leverage his career in the US Navy into a successful campaign, but did not qualify for any of the major Democratic presidential debates.
We will never forget, and are forever indebted to, Mr. Sleestak's endeavors of immeasurable wisdom, his passions, his humor and his insights.

...Oooooh...it's Sestak. Not Sleestak. I am all so wrong here.
