Police: Sarasota Man Behind Bars After Being Found Naked In A Chicken Coop In New York – WWSB

A Sarasota man is in custody following a manhunt in New York that ended with him naked inside a chicken coop.

On Wednesday, June 5, 2019 New York State Police arrested 25-year-old John Mehne after police say a bizarre series of events started when Mehne allegedly burglarized a home in Sarasota and stole a car.

Police say he crashed that car somewhere North of Pennsylvania and caught a ride on the back of a pickup truck, but eventually ran away on foot when multiple law enforcement units joined in on the chase.

Seattle Seahawks Go All Faggy – Fellowship Of The Minds

What is it with these NFL teams? Are they purposely trying to decrease their ever-decreasing attendance/TV rating numbers? Men at football games do not want to see men cheerleaders. They want to see cute girls in cute little outfits.

And for that matter, I don’t believe many women want to see gay men prancing around on the field. They’d rather watch the big, burly football players. Yet in an ever-increasing progressive and “woke” atmosphere, the NFL must cater to the SJWs and have all inclusive cheerleading, I mean dance teams.

The Seattle Seahawks are not the first NFL team to fall into this trap. See the following:

Hate-Crime Attack On Café Staged, Winnipeg Police Say, After Owners Charged With Mischief – CBC

An anti-Semitic attack originally called “the most brazen” the city had seen was staged by the owners of the restaurant that reported it, Winnipeg police say.

All three members of the family that owns BerMax Caffé and Bistro on Corydon Avenue have been arrested and charged with public mischief since the incident was initially reported last week. The family, however, insists they didn’t fake anything.

“We didn’t, because we don’t joke about swastikas on our walls,” Oxana Berent said in an interview with Ismaila Alfa, host of CBC Manitoba’s afternoon radio show, Up to Speed.

On Thursday evening, police responded to a report of an assault at the restaurant. A woman said she’d been assaulted, and the restaurant was spray-painted with hateful graffiti, police said.

Winnipeg police Chief Danny Smyth said Wednesday the attack was staged.

“I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex,” Sonalee Rashatwar, whose Instagram username is “The Fat Sex Therapist,” proclaimed Thursday from the main stage of St. Olaf College.

GOP-Controlled Florida House Passes Bill Banning Sanctuary Cities – Miami Herlad

The Florida House passed a high-profile Republican bill Wednesday requiring local law enforcement agencies to cooperate with federal immigration authorities and banning so-called “sanctuary city” policies that shield immigrants who are arrested.

After hours of debate over two days, the GOP-led House voted 69-47 largely along party lines for the measure, sending it over to the Senate where a similar bill is pending.

Florida doesn’t currently have any formal “sanctuary cities” like those in other states. The bill sponsored by GOP Rep. Cord Byrd of Jacksonville Beach would ban those policies and require local authorities to honor detainer requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that can lead to a person’s deportation.

Byrd and other Republicans cast it as a law-and-order measure that is aimed at generating respect for U.S. immigration laws. “We welcome you. But we ask one simple thing: we ask that you follow our laws and our rules,” Byrd said…

Trump Sending Armed Soldiers To The Border After National Guard Incident – Daily Wire

The Daily Wire’s James Barrett reported on the incident Friday, which involved armed Mexican military personnel who pulled aside two U.S. Army soldiers, forcing one to hand over his sidearm. The American soldiers complied, hoping to “de-escalate” the situation.

The Mexican military eventually let the two American soldiers go, and later claimed that they were “confused” over whether they were in American or Mexican territory…

Activist Judge To Block Trump Rule Cutting Off Funding To Abortion Providers – National Review

A federal judge in Oregon said Tuesday that he will grant a temporary injunction blocking the Trump administration’s attempt to cut off funding to family planning clinics that offer abortion or refer women to abortion providers.

Oregon joined 20 other states in seeking a national injunction to block the Trump administration’s proposed rule changes to Title X family planning program.

U.S. District Judge Michael J. McShane called the rule change a “ham-fisted approach to public health policy” and said that the so-called “gag rule” preventing doctors from referring to patients to abortion providers infringes on their ability to provide health care, the Oregonian reported.

McShane has not yet specified whether his injunction will apply nationally or just to the plaintiffs in the case, as the Department of Justice requested. Ellen Rosenblum, attorney for the state of Oregon, argued Tuesday that the rule change would deprive low-income citizens of healthcare they rely on…

Geologists Discover New Hotspot In Yellowstone Supervolcano That’s Killing Off Trees In A Patch Of Warm Land The Size Of Four Soccer Fields – Daily Mail

A new thermal area has popped up in Yellowstone National Park, in yet another sign of the ever-changing magma activity beneath the surface.

Satellite images have revealed an expanse of about eight acres – or the equivalent of four soccer fields – where the ground is warmer than its surroundings, causing the trees and vegetation in that patch to die off.

While scientists have only just confirmed its existence, the United State Geological Survey (USGS) estimates it’s been forming over the last 20 or so years.

In a new post for the USGS weekly Caldera Chronicles, scientists have revealed the existence of a new thermal area near Tern Lake. These areas are home to one or more thermal features, such as hot springs or geysers, of which there are more than 10,000 scattered across the park.

Thermal features are grouped into about 120 distinct thermal areas, USGS explains…

Israel’s Beresheet Spacecraft Enters Lunar Orbit And Prepares For Landing – Tech Crunch

Beresheet, Israel’s privately funded, engineered and launched mission to the Moon’s surface, has successfully entered lunar orbit after a month and a half in transit. The craft will now adjust its orbit in preparation for landing on April 11.

The craft was launched on February 21 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9, accelerating toward the moon in an ever-widening Earth orbit. In a testament to the exactitude of the engineers at SpaceIL, the organization that created the craft, Beresheet finished its burn and entered an elliptical lunar orbit within 9 minutes of the time it was predicted to do so before launch. That’s some rocket science!

The next step in the plan is to reduce the size of the craft’s lunar orbit with successive burns, to the point where it can safely make a single final burn and drop to the surface…

Alexandria Occasional-Cortex: ‘What We Need To Do Is Have A Serious Conversation’ About Cow Flatulence – CNS

The issue came up when Hayes referenced a “FAQ” put out by Ocasio-Cortez’s office in February that explained her Green New Deal and conceded that the changes that it envisioned within 10 years would have a certain limit because they might not be able to “get rid of farting cows and airplanes” within that time frame.

After the FAQ was released, Ocasio-Cortez’s office amended it to change “farting cows” to “emissions from cows,” and then withdrew it entirely.

Fake Black Woman Rachel Dolezal Agrees To Pay Back $8,847, Complete Community Service To Avoid Trial On Welfare Fraud Charges – Spokesman-Review

Dolezal, who changed her name to Nkechi Diallo two years ago, was charged with two felonies in May.

Investigators alleged she had failed to report tens of thousands of dollars in income from her memoir, “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World,” in order to collect $8,847 in food and child care assistance from the state Department of Social and Health Services.

Diallo entered the diversion agreement March 25 in Spokane County Superior Court. She could still face trial on the original charges if she fails to complete any part of the program, including the mandated community service hours and drug and alcohol tests…

Over Parent Objections, Public School Teaches 6-Year-Olds About ‘Transgender Ravens’ And Gender Fluidity – The Federalist

Illegal Alien With No Driver’s License Runs Over 13-Year-Old Girl On Her Way To School – WTSP

She was driving a minivan and taking her children to school Wednesday when she fatally hit 13-year-old Mariana Perez Borroto around 7:50 a.m. in the Poinciana/Kissimmee area, Judd said. Borroto was riding her bike to school.

Doctors Are Now Giving 8-Year-Old Girls Testosterone, Claiming They’re ‘Transgender’ – Daily Wire

Previously Deported Illegal Alien Charged With 100 Counts Of Possessing Child Pornography – Washington Examiner

A Senate panel approved a controversial abortion bill Wednesday regarding the rare cases of infants who survive the procedure. It’s one of three anti-abortion bills that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has listed among his priorities. All three have been approved by committees and sent to the full Senate.

The Senate Health and Human Services Committee approved the infant protection bill with a 6 to 2 vote. Senate Bill 23, filed by Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, the committee chair, gives teeth to an already existing statute that grants legal protections to children born after a failed abortion attempt.

Doctors who fail to provide appropriate medical treatment would be charged with a third-degree felony and have to pay a fine of at least $100,000…

Michigan Substitute Teacher Accidentally Shows Middle Schoolers Porn – Daily Caller

A Michigan substitute teacher showed a room full of middle schoolers a pornography video for at least 30 seconds before the teacher was able to turn it off.

The unidentified teacher at O.L. Smith Middle School in Dearborn was attempting to play footage about the Lewis and Clark expedition to the seventh grade class on March 13 when porn played instead, according to Fox2.

“This event was a very unfortunate and rare occurrence. Our district has a very powerful and proven filtering software to prevent this type of event from happening. Each day thousands of students log on to the internet throughout the district without incident,” the principal, Zeina Jebril, wrote in a letter to parents.

Jebril said there was an ongoing investigation to find out what exactly happened and to make sure it never happened again. David Mustonen, a spokesperson for the school, said the sub was unaware the video was there and blamed the video being shown on a technological glitch…

Report: Beijing Open To “Major Concessions” On Technology Transfers, Cloud Computing – Zero Hedge

President Trump can still hammer crude prices lower with a tweet, but unfortunately for Larry Kudlow and Steven Mnuchin, optimistic trade headlines just don’t pack the same market “oomph” that they once did.

Proof of this arrived Thursday morning, when a pair of ostensibly bullish stories from Reuters and WSJ failed to revive the market’s appetite for risk, even as anonymous U.S. officials teased what they heralded as a “major concession” from Beijing on forced technology transfers, and a top Chinese official told a group of American tech CEOs about a proposal to lift restrictions on foreign cloud-computing companies.

Speech Nazis At Twitter Considering Creation Of Special Label For Trump Tweets That “Violate Rules” – Breitbart

Twitter is reportedly considering adding special labels to President Trump’s tweets if it decides they “violate” the site’s rules.

CNN reports that Twitter is considering adding labels to the President’s tweets that it judges to violate the site’s rules, indicating that the tweets were going to remain on the platform because they are considered to be in the public interest. During an interview with the Washington Post, Twitter’s head of legal, policy and trust, Vijaya Gadde, revealed the company’s plan.

Twitter is reportedly attempting to maintain the website’s standards while giving context to tweets from politicians and public figures which may violate the websites rules but add to public debate.

Gadde was asked whether Twitter’s current approach to the president’s tweets means that he receives total immunity to say what he wishes on the platform. Gadde responded by saying that the platform wants to find a way to acknowledge that some tweets break the sites community standards but keep them on the platform if they are newsworthy…

Here’s The Conservative Plan To Improve Health Care – Doug Badger

A proposal to repeal Obamacare entitlements and replace them with grants to states would reduce premiums for individual coverage by as much as 32 percent, according to an analysis by the Center for Health and Economy.

The Health Care Choices Proposal also would modestly reduce the deficit, increase the number of people with private health insurance, and cut Medicaid spending, according to Center for Health and Economy.

The proposal, the product of national and state think tanks, policy analysts, and others in the conservative community, embarks on a new path to empower consumers and return authority to the states to provide people with better and more affordable health coverage options.

Sharia Justice Update: New Laws Adopted By Brunei Include Stoning Homosexuals And Adulterers To Death, And Amputating The Limbs Of Thieves – Daily Mail

Brunei could start whipping or stoning gay people to death next week when strict new laws are introduced, human rights groups have warned. The tiny oil-rich nation already implements Sharia laws, with homosexuality punishable with up to ten years in prison.

But from the start of next month the government plans to amend the penal code to mean LGBT people and adulterers could be stoned to death, with thieves facing having hands or feet amputated.

Amnesty International today slammed the plans, describing the Islamic criminal laws for gay sex and theft as ‘vicious’.

Brunei was the first East Asian country to introduce Islamic criminal law in 2014 when it announced the first of three stages of legal changes that included fines or jail for offences like pregnancy outside marriage or failing to pray on Friday.

Chicago Police Union Calls For Federal Investigation Into State’s Attorney Foxx’s Handling Of Smollett Case – WFLD

Before charges were even filed against Smollett, Foxx recused herself from prosecuting the case, but wouldn’t say why.

Last week, the Tribune obtained emails showing that while police were still in the middle of their investigation into the alleged hate crime, Foxx was contacted by a politically-connected attorney friendly with Smollett’s family, saying they had “concerns about the investigation.”

Man Faked His Kidnapping To Avoid Paying A $50,000 Super Bowl Bet – Breitbart

Police in New York claim that a man arranged his own kidnapping as a means to avoid paying off on a $50,000 Super Bowl bet.

The New York State Police report that when North Tonawanda resident Robert Brandel was found in a parking lot north of Buffalo, he told them that he had been kidnapped by two men from his Super Bowl squares betting pool. Brandel said they robbed him of $16,000 and left him tied up in a van for two days, CBS News reported.

Police found Brandel in Newfane, New York, on February 27 laying in the back of his truck with a rope around his neck and duct tape wrapped around his hands and ankles.

But an investigation reportedly found that Brandel put in several fake names in a Super Bowl squares game imagining that he would win and rake in the cash. Instead, he lost and owes the pool $50,000.

Instead of getting out of his betting debt, police arrested him and charged him with filing a false police report and fraud…

The $2.5 billion has already been spent – but California has failed to deliver the high-speed rail (on time, or at all) as promised. Therefore, the Trump administration argues, the state has to repay federal taxpayers.

The Los Angeles Times quoted Stanford law professor David Freeman Engstrom describing Trump’s effort as a “nuclear option.” The practice of recovering money after a breach of contract, while common in the private sector, was virtually unheard of in government, he explained…

Trump Administration Bans Abortion Providers, Referrals From Family Planning Program – The Hill

Family planning clinics that provide abortions or refer patients for abortions will not be eligible for certain federal funds under a new rule finalized by the Trump administration Friday.

Under the rule, women’s health clinics must be “physically and financially” separate from abortion providers to be eligible for Title X Family Planning grants, which fund organizations providing reproductive health services to low-income women.

Clinics will also not be allowed to refer women to other facilities for abortions, or promote or support abortion as a method of family planning.

The long-awaited changes to the Title X program had been pushed by conservatives and anti-abortion groups as a way to partially defund Planned Parenthood, which serves about 40 percent of Title X patients.

While not all Planned Parenthood clinics provide abortions, some do, and those clinics would become ineligible under the rule…

The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Since The Civil War – Conrad Black

The most immense and dangerous public scandal in American history is finally cracking open like a ripe pomegranate.

The broad swath of the Trump-hating media that has participated in what has amounted to an unconstitutional attempt to overthrow the government are reduced to reporting the events and revelations of the scandal in which they have been complicit, in a po-faced ho-hum manner to impart to the misinformed public that this is as routine as stock market fluctuations or the burning of an American flag in Tehran.

For more than two years, the United States and the world have had two competing narratives: that an elected president of the United States was a Russian agent whom the Kremlin helped elect; and its rival narrative that senior officials of the Justice Department, FBI, CIA, and other national intelligence organizations had repeatedly lied under oath, misinformed federal officials, and meddled in partisan political matters illegally…

Colorado House Sends National Popular Vote Bill To Leftist Governor’s Desk – KMGH

The bill that would have Colorado award its electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote for president is headed to Gov. Jared Polis’ desk after it passed its final House vote Thursday morning.

Winning: U.S. Oil Output Hits 12 Million Barrel-A-Day Milestone Way Ahead Of Schedule – Daily Caller

U.S. crude oil production hit 12 million barrels per day in mid-February, according to the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) latest report.

EIA’s weekly petroleum report, for the week ending Feb. 15, showed crude output jump more than 1.7 million barrels per day compared to the same time in 2018 – from roughly 10.3 million barrels per day to 12 million barrels per day.

“U.S. oil and natural gas production is breaking every record in the book, which helps families and businesses and our national security across the board,” Dan Kish, a distinguished senior fellow at the Institute for Energy research, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Indeed, drillers continue to beat analysts’ expectations. For example, EIA’s November 2018 energy forecast didn’t see oil output hitting 12 million barrels per day until mid-2019. The month before, EIA didn’t see the U.S. hitting that milestone until the fourth quarter of 2019.

SpaceX Rocket Launches First Private Moon Lander For Israel – Space

Israel’s first space mission is on its way to the moon!

A used SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched an Israeli moon lander along with an Indonesian communications satellite from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida tonight (Feb. 21).

After deploying its two payloads into orbit, the Falcon 9’s first stage returned to Earth and aced a landing (the third for this booster) on SpaceX’s drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You,” which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Liftoff occurred at 8:45 p.m. EST (0145 Feb. 22 GMT) just as the moon rose above the horizon here.

Although the primary payload for this mission was Indonesia’s satellite, named Nusantara Satu, the tiny moon lander that hitched a ride with the satellite as a secondary payload stole the show today. It became not only the first Israeli spacecraft to venture beyond Earth’s orbit, but also the first-ever privately funded moon mission…

Leftist Idiocy Update: $15 Minimum Wage Sparks A Jobs Recession In New York – Investor’s Business Daily

Economics 101: When Amazon pulled out of New York, the loss of 25,000 future jobs made headlines. What isn’t making headlines are the thousands of jobs being destroyed right now thanks to the city’s new $15 minimum wage.

Over the past four years, the minimum wage for New York City restaurants that employ more than 10 workers went from $10.50 an hour to $15. That’s a whopping 43% increase. Next year, every restaurant, big and small, will have to pay their workers at least $15 an hour.

A big victory for workers, right? That’s how it’s depicted by the “Fight for $15” crowd. And, yes, if you held a full-time minimum-wage job over those years, your gross income would have gone up by $9,360.

But those massive wage hikes come at a painful cost that backers refuse to acknowledge. They kill jobs. Just like they’re doing right now in New York City. In just the last three months of last year, 4,000 workers lost jobs at full-service restaurants, Bureau of Labor Statistics data show…

The two brothers worked on the show ‘Empire’, and were initially identified as suspects in the attack before they were released.

Trump Effect: China Offers A Path To Eliminate U.S. Trade Imbalance, Sources Say – Bloomberg

China has offered to go on a six-year buying spree to ramp up imports from the U.S., in a move that would reconfigure the relationship between the world’s two largest economies, according to officials familiar with the negotiations.

By increasing goods imports from the U.S. by a combined value of more than $1 trillion over that period, China would seek to reduce its trade surplus – which last year stood at $323 billion – to zero by 2024, one of the people said. The officials asked not to be named as the discussions aren’t public.

The offer, made during talks in Beijing earlier this month, was met with skepticism by U.S. negotiators who nonetheless asked the Chinese to do even better, demanding that the imbalance be cleared in the next two years, the people said. Economists who’ve studied the trade relationship argue it would be hard to eliminate the gap, which they say is sustained in large part by U.S. demand for Chinese products.

Christian Woman Awarded $21.5 Million After Employer Fired Her For Refusing To Work On Sundays – Daily Wire

A Federal Appeals Court Just Took A Big Swing At Planned Parenthood – Daily Caller

“Planned Parenthood’s reprehensible conduct, captured in undercover videos, proves that it is not a ‘qualified’ provider under the Medicaid Act, so we are confident we will ultimately prevail,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement after Thursday’s ruling.

The case arose after a pro-life group called the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released videos purporting to show Planned Parenthood violating medical and ethical standards codified in federal law and state regulations. Texas terminated its Medicaid provider agreement with Planned Parenthood shortly thereafter, citing infractions documented in the videos.

In turn, Planned Parenthood asked a federal court to restore its Medicaid funding. Thursday’s ruling is especially striking for its numerous rebukes of Planned Parenthood…

Dipshit Injects Himself With His Own Semen To Treat Back Pain, Ends Up In Hospital – Circa

A 33-year-old man required medical treatment at a Dublin, Ireland, hospital after he repeatedly injected himself with his own semen in an unusual attempt to treat his lower-back pain.

The man, after injecting the semen in his arm, developed a subcutaneous abscess on his right arm, where he had been injecting himself on a monthly basis for a year and a half. A radiograph also revealed excess water under his skin.

An intravenous antimicrobial drip to treat the problems was started immediately. The man’s back pain improved during his hospital stay, but he opted to discharge himself (from the hospital) without allowing doctors to make an incision to drain the “local collection.”

The case was revealed in a report published by the Irish Medical Journal titled ‘Semenly’ Harmless Back Pain: An Unusual Presentation of a Subcutaneous Abscess.

A cold-case homicide unit is investigating a case involving a doctor accused of ordering potentially fatal doses of pain medication to patients who were near death and receiving intensive care.

Mount Carmel Health, based in Columbus, Ohio, said in an email Tuesday, “our employees are understandably shocked and disappointed by this doctor.
