Woman Accused Of Pulling Knife On Man In Dollar Store After He Complained She ‘Farted Loudly’ – Miami Herald

Passing gas in public is often embarrassing. But for a Dania Beach woman, doing so while waiting in line at a Dollar General store led to her arrest on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.

It’s what police say she did after a man in line complained about the act that led to the charge.

According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office complaint affidavit, Shanetta Yvette Wilson, 37, was in the checkout line at the Dollar General store on 120 S. Federal Hwy in Dania Beach on Sunday evening. John Walker, the customer standing next to her, got into a verbal dispute “in reference to the defendant farting loudly,” according to the affidavit.

Wilson allegedly pulled a small “lock back knife” from her purse, “opened the knife and told the victim she was going to ‘gut’ him,” the police report said. While doing so, she pulled back her right hand with the knife as if she was going to attack the victim with it, the report read…

CNN Contributor Marc Lamont Hill Calls For Destruction Of Israel, Endorses Palestinian Violence – Breitbart
.

.
CNN Contributor Marc Lamont Hill told the United Nations on Wednesday that Israel should be replaced by a Palestinian state, and defended the Palestinian use of violence against Israel.

Hill was speaking at the “U.N. International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” which provides an annual platform for extremist rhetoric against Israel. He was present to express his views as an “invited representative of civil society.”

Hill referred to the founding of Israel in May 1948 as “the great catastrophe,” borrowing the term “Nakba,” which is used by Palestinians. (He neglected to mention that the Palestinians had joined the surrounding Arab states in 1948 in attacking Israel with the intention of destroying it, and killing or expelling the Jewish population.)…

Pennsylvania School Bus Drivers Sue Feds For Preventing Them From Voting To Leave Leftist-Controlled Union – Washington Free Beacon

Pennsylvania school bus drivers are suing the federal government for preventing them from holding a vote to cut ties with their union.

A pair of drivers at Krise Transportation in northwestern Pennsylvania led a campaign to cut ties with Teamsters Local 397 after souring with their representation. Their efforts gained nearly universal support form their fellow workers; 24 of the bargaining unit’s 28 employees signed a petition to hold an election on maintaining the relationship with the union.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the federal government’s top labor arbiter in charge of monitoring union elections, killed any hope of that vote, according to a new lawsuit.

An agency policy prevents decertification elections from taking place within a “reasonable period of time” following a settlement agreement between an employer and a labor organization, a doctrine known as the “settlement bar” rule. Krise settled a case with Local 397 in March, two months before workers petitioned to vote the union out…

Mexico To Grant Highest Honor To President Trump’s Son-In-Law Jared Kushner – Sun Daily

Mexico will bestow its highest honor for foreign nationals on US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner for his role in saving the country’s free-trade agreement with the United States and Canada.

Kushner, an influential White House adviser, will receive the Order of the Aztec Eagle for shepherding the negotiations to reach a new version of the deal, despite Trump’s blistering criticism of the original North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta).

“Mr Kushner played a fundamental role throughout the process,“ the Mexican foreign ministry said in a statement. “His involvement was crucial in beginning the renegotiation of Nafta, avoiding a unilateral exit by the United States, and his constant and efficient involvement was key in reaching a successful conclusion.”

Trump had threatened to axe the 24-year-old Nafta, calling it the “worst trade deal ever” and a “rip-off” for American workers…

Eternal Darkness Of The Leftist Mind – Lloyd Marcus

Folks, I continue asking myself, why do leftists think so differently from the rest of us?

Oprah Winfrey said she is an “open-minded” Christian who does not believe Jesus came to die for our sins. In other words, Oprah rejects the Gospel. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Oprah says Jesus is not the only way to heaven. As a self-proclaimed follower of Jesus, how can Oprah reject what he said? “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) I find it amazing that Oprah believes she can rewrite God’s plan for salvation to fit the agenda of herself and her leftist gurus. Oprah is free to believe whatever she wishes, but why call herself a Christian?

Illinois DemoNazi Says She Wanted To Pump A ‘Broth Of Legionella’ Bacteria Into Republican Colleague’s Water Supply – Chicago Tribune

A Democratic state lawmaker said she wanted to pump a lethal “broth of Legionella” bacteria into the water system of a Republican colleague’s family, during heated remarks on the Illinois House floor over a bill aimed at helping families of more than a dozen residents at the Downstate Quincy veterans home who died of Legionnaires’.

The bill would raise limits on damages in some state Court of Claims cases from $100,000 to $2 million, which could affect the victims’ families, who allege the state was negligent in the deaths that resulted from outbreaks at the veterans home over the past three years.

Gov. Bruce Rauner rewrote the proposal over the summer to reduce such caps on damage awards to $300,000, but lawmakers voted Tuesday to override him.

During the House floor debate over the proposal, Republican state Rep. Peter Breen of Lombard questioned some of the plan’s details, contending the state doesn’t know how much it will cost…

Traitor Theresa May Backs Down Over Brexit Votes In Parliament – Bloomberg

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has backed down in a key Brexit battle with Parliament, ditching moves to stop lawmakers trying to re-write her plans, according to an official.

The government had intended to try to prevent the House of Commons from changing the terms of May’s agreement with the European Union before politicians finally vote on it. But according to one official, speaking on condition of anonymity, May’s team have now dropped this tactic in the face of protests from politicians.

That means lawmakers will be free to vote on a series of potential changes to May’s motion, which could include calls for another referendum, or for a different deal with the EU. It’s a decision with potentially huge implications for the future direction of Brexit.

The fact that May is backtracking already ahead of the Dec. 11 vote suggests she knows she’s losing the battle with rebels in her own Conservative Party who want to tear up the agreement she’s reached with the EU…

Muslim Grooming Gangs Targeted Sikh Girls For Decades, Police Frozen By ‘Political Correctness’ – Breitbart

Gangs of predominantly Muslim men have been grooming and raping British Sikh girls for decades, with police often ignoring signs because of political correctness, according to a bombshell report.

The study by the Sikh Mediation and Rehabilitation Team alleges that young Sikh women have been “targeted” by men of Muslim faith who subjected them to sexual abuse.

The educational charity says police “recklessly ignored” complaints, often for reasons of “political correctness,” in a similar way to other grooming gang scandals involving predominantly white victims.

Following a pattern seen all across the UK, according to the report, the men would groom girls before passing them round to other members of their gang or family to abuse. Some of the abuse dates back to the 1970s.

The girls would be snared by “fashionably dressed adult Pakistani men…

Previously Deported Illegal Alien, With Two Anchor Babies, Gets 25 Years For Raping Deaf Woman – Breitbart

A previously deported illegal alien – with two U.S.-born children who were given birthright citizenship – has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after raping a deaf woman.

Jose Abarca, a 43-year-old repeat illegal alien from Mexico, was sentenced by Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Michael Mason for a rape he committed 22 years ago, according to WJLA.

In October 1996, the illegal alien broke into a Maryland home and raped a deaf woman. Before fleeing the scene, Abarca held a gun to the woman’s head and signaled her to be silent. At the time of the rape, police were unable to track down a suspect as the woman only had a general description of the illegal alien and the description of his white van that had been seen near the house the day before.

Then, more than 10 years later, Abarca was arrested by the Montgomery County Police for dealing cocaine in March 2008. After serving less than 12 months in prison, Abarca was deported to Mexico…

Satan-Worshiping Pre-Teen Girls Planned To Kill Classmates, Eat Their Flesh And Drink Their Blood – Daily Wire

They also discussed eating their victims’ flesh and leaving body parts at the school’s entrance before killing themselves.

Former Democrat Party Leader Paid Women In Alleged Tarrant Courty, Texas Voter Fraud Ring – Fort Worth Star-Telegram

A Fort Worth woman recently indicted on voter fraud charges paid others involved in the scheme with funds provided by a former Tarrant County Democratic Party leader, court documents filed this week say.

Crazy Democrat Claire McCaskill To Voters: ‘I’m Not One Of Those Crazy Democrats’ – Daily Wire

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill is on the ropes, losing narrowly in recent polls to Republican Josh Hawley, the state’s current Attorney General, and she’s making an intriguing closing argument to voters: she’s a “normal” Democrat.

CNN reports that McCaskill’s push is part of a wider overture on the part of her campaign, trying to convince voters that they shouldn’t punish the longtime-senator for the sins of her colleagues.

The second caravan is made up of 1,000 people and crossed the border from Honduras into Guatemala on Sunday, before arriving in the town of Chiquimula on Monday night.

253 Theaters Drop ‘Gosnell’ Amid Media Blackout To Defend ‘Sacrament’ Of Abortion – PJ Media

After less than two weeks at the box office, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” has racked up around $2.5 million, an impressive haul considering that more than 200 theaters have dropped the movie since its release on October 12.

The mainstream media has largely ignored the film, Facebook has refused to run its ads, and it seems a large group of people want to pretend the movie does not even exist.

“This movie really exposes something that the Left does not want to report about,” Nick Searcy, the film’s director, told PJ Media in an interview Tuesday. “They’re basically trying to ignore this movie. They’re trying to say that it doesn’t exist because they don’t want to have a discussion about abortion.”

West Germany: 42 Percent Of Young Children Are From Migrant Backgrounds – Your News Wire

The population of Germany is rapidly transforming, with the number of native Germans decreasing as migrants take over the country. According to new data by the German Federal Statistical Office, up to 42 of children under the age of six in western Germany now come from a migration background.

Breitbart.com reports: In 2017, 249,000 German citizens left the country to move abroad, while 167,000 moved back from overseas, leading to a net drain of 82,000 Germans leaving the country – a trend that has been ongoing since 2005.

Falling birthrates have also led to a decline among the native German population. As well as losing around 217,000 citizens due to emigration over the past two years, 500,000 more Germans died than were born over the same period. The result is a loss of 700,000 Germans in total, over only two years.

China Opens Longest Sea Bridge, Linking Hong Kong To Mainland – CBC

China on Tuesday opened the world’s longest sea-crossing bridge linking Hong Kong to the mainland, a feat of engineering carrying immense economic and political significance.

Chinese President Xi Jinping presided over a ceremony in Zhuhai to open the 55-kilometre Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, which links the city to the semi-autonomous regions of Hong Kong and Macau. Digital fireworks exploded on a screen behind him as leaders of the three cities watched.

The $20-billion (U.S.) bridge took almost a decade to build while incurring major delays and cost overruns. It includes an undersea tunnel allowing ships to pass through the Pearl River delta, the heart of China’s crucial manufacturing sector…

Winning: U.S. Supreme Court Strikes Down Activist New York Court In Census Citizenship Ruling – Conservative Treehouse

The most recent reviews of media presentations for this story (The Hill and CNN) reflect MSM disappointment that SCOTUS has ruled in favor of the administration.

The U.S. Commerce Department is adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census. An activist judge in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) -framing a challenge based on the question being discriminatory- ruled that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross must submit to a deposition to discover “the motives” of the decision.

An appellate circuit panel initially agreed with the lower court and ACLU lawyers. However, U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco asked the Supreme Court to stay the circuit court ruling. SCOTUS agreed with the administration and blocked the ridiculous activist lawyers from questioning the cabinet; the supreme court does allow the plaintiffs to question the DOJ civil rights division lawyer.

Republicans Beating Democrats In Early Voting In Key States – Breitbart

Republican voters are outpacing Democrat voters in key states such as Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee, and Texas, according to NBC News. All six of those states will be key to which political party controls the Senate. As of now, Republicans hold the slimmest majority of just 51 seats.

According to the Real Clear Politics poll of polls, Republicans currently enjoy comfortable leads in three of those states: Tennessee (+6.5), North Dakota (+10.6), and Texas (+7.0). But only North Dakota would be a Republican pickup from an incumbent Democrat.

In the remaining three states – Indiana, Florida, and Montana – the incumbent Democrats all enjoy two to three point leads.

But as we saw during the 2016 presidential election, the polls might be missing something – like an unexpected surge of Republican enthusiasm, which would be picked up in early voting statistics such as these…

China, Russia, North Korea, And Iran Set For Electronic Pulse Attacks On U.S. – Washington Free Beacon

China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran are preparing nuclear electronic pulse attacks from space in a future conflict to cripple the U.S. military and plunge the United States into darkness, according to a declassified study.

“The United States critical national infrastructure faces a present and continuing existential threat from combined-arms warfare, including cyber and manmade electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, and natural EMP from a solar superstorm,” says a recently published report from the congressional Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack.”

Once largely a concern of a Cold War surprise attack from Russia to shut down American nuclear forces communications, the spread of nuclear weapons has increased the danger of disruptive EMP attack from a nuclear burst in the upper atmosphere.

North Dakota Church Needs New Holy Water After Naked Man On Meth Takes A Dip – Miami Herald

A North Dakota church’s holy water fountain needs a $500 deep clean – not to mention new holy water – after what happened during Mass on Tuesday, the priest told police.

Witnesses at the church said that once Burdick was naked, he began walking down the aisle toward the altar as he masturbated, the affidavit said.

How America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer Almost Got Away With Murder – Jonathan Lange

On Wednesday night, McCarthy told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham he expects the bill to pass the House. But its fate is uncertain in the Senate, where 60 votes are needed to cut off debate.

“The name of this bill is ‘Build the Wall and Enforce the Law.’ So it fully funds the wall – $25 billion – but it even does more,” McCarthy said. “You know, Kate’s Law, which we passed, is a part of this. Stop sanctuary cities – it keeps children safe because it removes the MS-13 gang members…

United Nations: A $240 Per Gallon Gas Tax Is Needed To Fight Fake Global Warming – Zero Hedge

The United Nations has declared that a $240 per gallon gasoline tax is “needed” to fight climate change. To limit global warming, the UN’s report says that $27,000 per tonne of gasoline will need to be stolen from the public by the year 2100.

For Americans, that’s the same as a $240 per gallon tax on gasoline in the year 2100, should such a recommendation be adopted. In 2030, which is only 12 years away, the report says that the carbon tax would need to be as high as $5,500, and the equivalent to a $49 per gallon gas tax, reported The Daily Caller.

What Do The Worst-Run States Have In Common? They’re Run By Tax-And-Spend Democrats – Investor’s Business Daily

And lest anything think that Mercatus – a free-market-oriented group – is fudging the numbers, note that the data used to compile these rankings all come from official state annual financial reports and from state actuarial reports.

Bill Clinton’s Sexual Assault Allegations Are Different’, Says Hitlery – Zero Hedge

That’s what Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour during an interview Tuesday when Amanpour prodded her about the allegations facing her husband and how she squares supporting him with her criticisms of men like Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The difference-maker, according to Clinton, is the fact that the allegations facing her husband were thoroughly investigated by a federal prosecutor.

The missile systems are used to intercept and shoot down enemy missiles and planes, and the four systems have been taken offline and will be deployed next month, officials told The WSJ…

Fed Hikes Rates For 8th Time – Zero Hedge

The Fed’s eight rate-hike since 2015 was perhaps the most anticipated yet, and Jay Powell did not let investors down, delivering the 25bps hike everyone expected. And so it was – but all eyes were on the dot plots and the language changes in the statement.

As Bloomberg noted, Fed policy makers face two important decisions at their September meeting: One, whether to retain optionality around a potential fourth interest-rate increase in December; and, two, the appropriate policy trajectory as rates approach neutral.

Here are the Key Takeaways from the Fed report:

* Only meaningful change in FOMC’s statement is removal of the sentence on maintaining “accommodative” policy.

* The overview of the economy is same as August statement: labor market continues to strengthen, activity “strong.’

The decision to remove “accommodative” signals that the FOMC feels the U.S. economy is getting closer to a neutral policy rate setting…

South Korea’s president is trumpeting the “miraculous” moves toward peace that have occurred in recent months on the Korean Peninsula as negotiators try to settle a decades-long nuclear standoff with North Korea.

Moon Jae-in said at the U.N. General Assembly that he has both “a sense of urgency and excitement” over diplomacy that has “removed the shadow of war.”

Moon has met three times this year with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. U.S. President Donald Trump met in June with Kim, and they are trying to set up another summit.

6 Crucial Questions About The Newest Accusations Against Brett Kavanaugh – Matt Walsh

Less than a day before the Senate hearing about sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has released a new set of allegations.

His client, Julie Swetnik, claims in a sworn statement that she witnessed Brett Kavanaugh at boozy parties in the early 1980s behaving inappropriately toward women. She also alleges that Kavanaugh, his friend Mark Judge, and other boys, drugged various girls and then “gang” or “train” raped them. She says that she fell victim to one of these gang rapes, but she does not allege that Kavanaugh himself was involved in the assault.

These accusations – the most graphic and dramatic yet – raise some very serious questions. Since we cannot rely on the media to ask the questions, I will lay them out below:

1) If Kavanaugh was a member of a violent rape gang, why didn’t that fact turn up during any of the several FBI background investigations he has already been subjected to? And why didn’t Swetnik ever contact the FBI or any other law enforcement agency about the criminal behavior of a federal judge?…

Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Friday Vote On Kavanaugh – Breitbart

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a meeting on September 28, to vote on whether to recommend Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the full Senate for confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The committee is currently scheduled to hear testimony under oath from Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, on Thursday. Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has hired a veteran prosecutor who specializes in sex crime cases to lead the questioning of both witnesses.

While it appears certain that Kavanaugh will be there to testify, there are growing doubts – including from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who initiated the whole affair – as to whether Ford will show up at all. (Ford was invited to testify, but is not under subpoena, and therefore has no legal obligation to appear and be placed under oath.)

The Judiciary Committee’s rules require three days’ advance notice of any business meeting, so Grassley has issued that notice today if a majority of the committee is prepared to vote after Thursday’s hearing…

Why Trump’s Tariffs Won’t Cost Consumers A Nickel – Curtis Ellis

Past administrations have called out China for violating the internationally agreed-upon rules of trade for decades. After countless high-level talks, admonitions and appeals, China did nothing to change its cheating ways.

President Trump has dispensed with the talk and taken action, slapping tariffs on billions of dollars of goods China exports to the United States at artificially low prices.

Naysayers predicted the president’s tariffs would tank the stock market and drag down the economy. But the Dow is posting record gains, unemployment is at a 49-year low and the economy remains strong.

The forecasters are at a loss to explain why reality isn’t conforming to what they learned in school. A Wall Street economist tells Reuters, “It’s like we have nothing to fear, but we should.”

Critics also contend that President Trump’s tariffs will inevitably lead to higher prices for consumers. We’ve heard this before…

“I Don’t Give A Shit If It’s A Crime”: Fourth Veritas Video Reveals IRS Still Targeting Conservatives – Zero Hedge

The two officials in the report are Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, and Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC.

Sheehy boasts about and appears to justify former disgraced IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who was mired in scandal for losing tens of thousands of emails regarding the Lois Lerner controversy. The Lois Lerner controversy occurred in 2013 and involved revelations showing that the IRS unfairly scrutinized conservative groups.

Federal Judge Declares Albuquerque’s Vehicle Seizure Program Unconstitutional – Washington Free Beacon

A U.S. district judge declared Albuquerque’s civil asset forfeiture program unconstitutional.

Federal judge James O. Browning found that seizing property from those suspected of a crime, even before a legal judgment had been rendered, violated the property owner’s legal right to the presumption of innocence.

The law placed the burden on citizens to absolve themselves from crimes of which they’re accused, even if they had not been charged. He also held that the program’s funds collection, which bankrolls its budget, enticed law enforcement officials to work for personal benefit rather than for civilian protection.

“The City of Albuquerque has an unconstitutional institutional incentive to prosecute forfeiture cases, because, in practice, the forfeiture program sets its own budget and can spend, without meaningful oversight, all of the excess funds it raises from previous years,” Browning, who sits on the District Court of New Mexico, wrote in an order Saturday…

Swedish Crown Jewels Stolen By Motorboat Pirates – Daily Caller

Thieves stole the Swedish crown jewels from Strängnäs Cathedral in Sweden Tuesday and made off in a motorboat, prompting a massive manhunt.

Two unidentified men took a royal orb and two crowns from their display cases in the cathedral around noon, then escaped on a motorboat that they had moored below the church. Police gave chase with boats, helicopters and officers on land.

“We are on land, in the water and in the air,” a police spokesman told The Sydney Morning Herald. The thieves evaded capture, however, leaving the boat to travel in a getaway car. Police believe they are either headed East to Stockholm, or west into the hinterlands.

“We are spreading out in all directions,” the spokesman added. The police had not apprehended them as of 9:30 p.m. local time.

Trump Extends Short-Term Plans Offered As A Way Out Of Obamacare – Washington Examiner

The Trump administration will allow people to buy short-term health insurance for just under 12 months and extend them for up to three years, reversing an Obama administration-era rule that put a shorter limit on how long these plans can be used.

The administration casts the maneuver as a way to provide alternatives to expensive Obamacare plans for consumers, but Democrats oppose the plans as “junk insurance” that bring the country to a pre-Obamacare era offering inadequate medical coverage.

The move overturns a rule implemented in April 2016 that restricted the time people were allowed to be on these plans to three months. Prior to that, people were able to have them for nearly a year, or 364 days.

Under the Trump administration’s new rules, people can renew their short-term coverage twice, for a maximum of 36 months, Randy Pate, deputy administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a call Tuesday with reporters…

Compensation for workers improved this spring at the highest rate since the Great Recession.

That is the best annual gain since the third quarter of 2008, which saw the index rise 2.9 percent.

It is only slight gain over the quarterly survey released in March, which indicated a 2.7 percent annual gain. The measure of private-sector wages and salaries, which excludes the costs associated with benefits, rose 2.9% year over year, exactly as it did early in the year.

President Trump struck a trade deal Wednesday with the European Union, reaping significant concessions as top E.U. officials moved to avoid an escalating tariff war with the U.S., according to early reports.

The deal involved the E.U. importing more U.S. soybeans, lowering industrial tariffs and working on an agreement to import more liquified natural gas (LNG) from America, according to a Dow Jones report.

The deal followed a high-stakes meeting between Mr. Trump and E.U. Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The two leaders faced off over escalating dispute over tariffs and trade barriers that block U.S. goods…

Russian FSB security and intelligence service agents have arrested two people in the defense industry charged with passing secrets on Moscow’s hypersonic missiles to western intelligence.

U.S. intelligence agencies are closely monitoring the mole hunt first disclosed July 20 in news reports in Russia. One suspect in the case is Viktor Kudryavtsev, a 74-year-old researcher at a Russian rocket and spacecraft design plant who was arrested July 19 by FSB agents.

A second person was reported arrested for treason as part of the investigation, Russian state-run news outlets reported Monday.

Kudryavtsev was charged with “transferring classified information on the technologies used in the development of hypersonic aircraft to one of the NATO countries,” a Russian government source told the pro-government news outlet Kommersant, quoting a security source…

Aussies Design Molecule That Kills Malaria-Causing Parasite – Phys

A research team from ANU and The University of Queensland has designed and made a molecule derived from a human protein that kills the parasite which causes malaria.

Treatments for malaria, a disease that kills a person every 90 seconds, are becoming less effective because of drug resistance and there is a risk to the future control of the disease.

Lead researcher Associate Professor Brendan McMorran from ANU said the team was a step closer to developing a new and effective treatment for malaria.

California DMV Worker Slept Thousands Of Hours On The Job, Report Says – USA Today

A California Department of Motor Vehicles employee slept thousands of hours on the job since 2014, a report released Tuesday from the state’s auditor says. The report estimates the employee slept three or more hours daily at her desk since February 2014, totaling over 2,200 hours of work time and costing more than $40,000.

The employee worked as a key data operator. Her duties included “routine data entry for change of address and new vehicle ownership forms,” the report says.

She processed less than half the documents that she was expected to – an average of 200 documents a day, when key data operators are expected to process more than 550, according to the report.

While her supervisors were aware of the issue, the report found that they underestimated the amount of time the employee was sleeping on the job and did not properly follow disciplinary procedures…

Mankind Will Be Extinct Within 50 Years If We Do Not Abolish Plastic Straws – Matt Walsh

I thought I had witnessed the zenith of human courage when Billy Joel recently announced in an interview that “Nazis aren’t good people.” Joel is risking his career, perhaps even his life, to dispel the popular notion that Nazis are decent chaps. But his heroism is mere pond scum in comparison to the warriors who have taken up the fight against plastic straws.

The Board of Supervisors in San Francisco passed an ordinance yesterday banning straws from restaurants and bars in the city. San Francisco, like Seattle, will now be a straw-free safe haven.

The refugee fleeing straw persecution can come to the city and live in paradise and contract hepatitis when he steps on a used heroin needle. But even then he will rejoice, for he is liberated from straws.

Joseph Shepard’s personal income from his investments in those businesses has grown exponentially during his wife’s two terms in the Senate.

The federal payments don’t go directly into Shepard’s pocket. Most of the money goes toward operating costs for government-subsidized housing projects Shepard is invested in. Those companies then distribute the profits to Shepard and other investors.

Confirmed: DOJ Used Materially False Information To Secure Wiretaps On Trump Associate – Mollie Hemingway

Newly released documents confirm House and Senate investigators’ claims that the Department of Justice and FBI used materially false and misleading information to secure wiretaps on Carter Page, a former volunteer foreign policy advisor to President Trump.

The highly redacted documents released in response to Freedom of Information Act requests show how the FBI was able to convince the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to surveil the Naval Academy graduate and energy consultant for a year of his life.

The wiretap was applied for and granted in October 2016, shortly before the end of the presidential campaign. Approved applications last for 90 days. The Department of Justice requested and received three renewals, for a total of one year of surveillance.

Despite claiming to the court in 2016 that “the FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government,” the government has yet to charge Page with breaking any of the serious laws it alleges he knowingly transgressed…

Seattle Passes Citywide Law Based Largely On The Research Of A 9-Year-Old Boy – Washington Examiner

Seattle has made it official: It is now the first major U.S. city to ban plastic drinking straws. As it turns out, the law, which includes a fine of $250 for all violators, is based largely on the unofficial research of a nine-year-old boy.

Probably not the best basis for sound legislation, but what do I know?

The ban, which went into effect Sunday, is an “environmentally friendly move that leaders hope will spark a nationwide conversation about small, everyday changes that people can make to protect the planet.” Or so says the Washington Post.

The paper adds: “Now customers at grocery stores, restaurants, food trucks, even institutional cafeterias have to find another way to get liquid into their mouths. Compostable paper and plastic straws are allowed under the ban.”

According to Reason, the tax was originally 1% but is now 6%. The tax increase aims at making up for the lost money from passengers who opted to use ride shares instead of the Metro. Ridership has decreased in recent years with 14,000 fewer weekly trips in 2018 opposed to 2017 and 27,000 fewer weekly trips in 2016 compared to 2017.

A member on the City Council claimed that taking Uber is exciting and claimed “no one will notice” because “they have no idea what they are going to pay anyway.”

The D.C. Metro is known for its constant delays, malfunctions, and fires. There is even a website, Is Metro On Fire, to prepare riders for the infernos they may encounter. The Metro has been under constant repair and has shut down large parts of the tracks for maintenance under SafeTrack while also increasing prices…

Thai Soccer Team Found Alive After 10 Days Lost In Caves – USA Today

A Thai youth soccer team and its coach were found alive Monday in a vast, flooded cave complex where they disappeared more than a week ago, and a photo taken by rescuers showed the smiling faces of several survivors.

Video released early Tuesday by the Thai navy showed the boys in their soccer uniforms sitting on a dry area inside the cave above the water as a spotlight, apparently from a rescuer, illuminated their faces.

Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said the 13 were in the process of being rescued, but he cautioned that they were not out of danger yet.

“We found them safe. But the operation isn’t over,” he said in comments broadcast nationwide, referring to the complicated process of extricating them.

It was not immediately clear when the group would be removed from the cave. Narongsak said the rescue was underway and conditions of the players were being evaluated…

Socialist Bernie Sanders Suddenly Not Leftist Enough For Many Democrats Because He’s Hesitant To Abolish ICE – Breitbart
.

.
Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is no longer left enough for some Democrats, because he has been reluctant to join calls to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

That’s according to the New Republic, once a reliable center-left organ. Writer Sarah Jones has declared that Sanders is “undermining his position as the nation’s most prominent left-wing politician” by suggesting that ICE should be reformed, rather than endorsing the total elimination of border enforcement.

Jones writes:

Sanders could be a source of consistent, left-wing pressure on party leadership, whether or not he runs in 2020…

Rudy Giuliani Tells Exiles Trump Will Bring Down Iranian Regime – Bloomberg

The collapse of Iran’s Islamic regime “is around the corner,” and the U.S. will keep increasing sanctions until it happens, President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani told an exiled Iranian opposition group.

The former New York mayor added at an event near Paris that he was speaking “as a private American citizen,” not on behalf of the Trump administration. Giuliani isn’t known to have inside knowledge of U.S. foreign-policy plans.

Speaking to the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, a group that for years was on the U.S.’s terrorism list, Giuliani said European nations and former President Barack Obama had appeased the Islamic regime and said “Trump doesn’t turn his back on freedom fighters.”

“This government is about to collapse, and this is the time to turn on the pressure,” Giuliani told a crowd of thousands of flag-waving MEK followers…
