UC Berkeley instructor calls rural Americans 'bad people' who deserve 'uncomfortable' lives

A UC Berkeley graduate student and instructor took to Twitter to shame "rural Americans" and those who aren't "pro-city."

Jackson Kernion, who has reportedly taught at least 11 philosophy courses at the California university, made the comments last Wednesday.

"I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans," Kernion wrote in a now-deleted tweet. "They, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions...and we should shame people who aren't pro-city."

Kernion started going after rural citizens, saying they should have higher health care, pay more in taxes and be forced to live an "uncomfortable" life for rejecting "efficient" city life, Campus Reform reported.

A Viewer Writes....... Crime in daBury

Joe,
Sometime middle of last week, Family Dollar at 1005 Snow Hill Road had a robbery.

A white female approx 5' 8 " about 100 lbs with tattoo markings of the Number 1, 2, 3, 4 on her neck and forearm, reached across the counter, stealing a employees wallet. She than ran towards the exit door; knocking other shoppers out of the way, and jumped into a white van marked " KITCHEN CONCEPTS" and drove to the store located @ 1001 Eastern Shore Drive in Salisbury.

Salisbury Police responded to family dollar, and all robbery evidence, escape route, and Van identification was clearly noted on CCTV @ that Salisbury family dollar store.

SPD has yet arrested this woman or returned the employees wallet to the rightful owner at Family Dollar.

I asked the employee at family dollar on 11-11-2019 while shopping and noting the managers concerns....why the wallet was in reaching distance. The employee responded I just got a soda , and was about to place the wallet in my pocket, when the robbery took place.

Jake Day ran on no crime in Dabury.....and he lied his AZZ OFF.

NO CRIME IN DABURY

Hillary Says She’s ‘Under Enormous Pressure’ To Run For President, But Doesn’t Say From Who

Hillary Clinton refused to rule out a 2020 presidential run Monday, and said she is “under enormous pressure” to do so.

“As I say, never, never, never say never,” Clinton said in an interview with BBC Radio 5 when she was asked about a future presidential bid.

Clinton’s remarks will no doubt fuel speculation that the failed 2016 presidential candidate will jump into a crowded Democratic field in hopes of challenging President Donald Trump.

Supreme Court lets Sandy Hook families' lawsuit against gunmaker proceed

In an order released Tuesday, the Supreme Court allowed families of Sandy Hook victims to proceed with a lawsuit against gun manufacturer Remington Arms despite the company's claims that it was protected from liability by federal law.

Remington had petitioned the Supreme Court to reverse a March 2019 decision by the Connecticut Supreme Court, which ruled 4-3 that Remington could be sued under state law over its marketing practices, citing one of the few exemptions to the federal law.

The gunmaker argued that the state court's interpretation of the marketing exemption is, "intolerable given Congress's 'intention to create national uniformity'" with the federal law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. "As the dissenters below noted, lawsuits like this one are precisely the kind the PLCAA was enacted to prevent."

Baltimore Murder Crisis Could Hit Record, About To Record 300 Homicides For Fifth Straight Year

The murder crisis in Baltimore City could set a record this year.

The current homicide count is 296 as of Sunday afternoon, following a fatal shooting Saturday morning.

In the next week, the murder count could breach 300 for the fifth year in a row.

With 57 days left in the year, the city could record the most murders ever, would need to break 344 homicides, a record that was set in 2015.

Councilman Leon Pickett, who represents Baltimore's seventh district, told CBS 13 Baltimore that the murder crisis is "unacceptable."

HOW TO HACK A VOTING MACHINE IN TWO MINUTES

Voting machines are far from impenetrable. There’s remote access loopholes, general corporate malfeasance, and democracy-shattering bad design, for starters. And then there are hacks like this.

In a video posted to Twitter, Rachel Tobac, CEO of white hat hacker group SocialProof Security, showed just how easy it was to obtain admin access to one of the most popular electronic voting machines in the U.S. The hack takes about two minutes and requires no specialized equipment (save a ballpoint pen) to obtain administrative access.

The machine used by Tobac is the Premier Election System’s BallotStation 4.7, a close cousin to the Diebold AccuVote TS, one of the most popular and vulnerable electronic machines used to record vote tallies. Though Diebold changed its name to Premier back in 2007 for “strategic” reasons, it apparently decided to hold on to its extremely vulnerable equipment.

San Francisco’s New DA: Public Urination ‘Will Not Be Prosecuted’

San Francisco’s pee problem could soon get worse.

Chesa Boudin, the urine-and-feces-plagued city’s incoming district attorney, pledged during the campaign not to prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes if he was elected. Boudin declared victory Saturday night after results showed him winning a plurality of votes in the DA race.

“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted,” Boudin vowed in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign.

‘No question’: Bernie Sanders says Ocasio-Cortez would play a role in his White House

Bernie Sanders claimed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would “play a very, very important role” in his administration if he becomes president.

During an interview with ABC News, Sanders, 78, explained that he believes Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most accomplished freshman members in Congress.

“I don’t know of any person — I’ve been in Congress for a few years — who in the course of less than one year, she’s been in office for less than one year, who’s had more of an impact in American politics as a freshman member of Congress than she has,” said Sanders.

What’s Driving Unusually High Voter Turnout

American voters are motivated by a fever pitch.

That’s the message from last week’s elections.

The headlines were the Democratic sweep of the state legislature in Virginia that put the entire state government under Democrat control for the first time in 25 years and the defeat of incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in Kentucky.

An important part of the story is that voter turnout was off the charts.

In Kentucky, an estimated 43% of eligible voters turned out compared with 31% for the last gubernatorial election, in 2015.

Voter turnout in Virginia was the highest it has been for a state legislature-only election in at least the last 40-some years.

There’s a lot of noise in the political and cultural arenas in America today, and it’s exactly what I talk about in my new book, released this week, “Necessary Noise: How Donald Trump Inflames the Cultural War and Why This is Good News for America.”

A new Gallup poll measuring voter enthusiasm reports that 64% are “more enthusiastic” compared with previous elections, a percentage “among the highest Gallup has measured across presidential election years.”

It’s actually the highest ever measured because previous levels in this range were reported one to five months before upcoming election. Voter enthusiasm at this accelerated level one year before an election is unprecedented.

'I want to have my own car': American-born ISIS bride begs to return to US

A woman born in New Jersey, who fled the United States to join the Islamic State five years ago, said she "regrets every single thing" and has fought to return home despite the loss of her citizenship.

Hoda Muthana, 25, left her family home in Alabama in 2014 after making contact with ISIS fighters through social media. Muthana had gained a large following on Twitter and expressed anti-Western ideology consistent with that of ISIS, or Daesh, including encouraging jihadis to "go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood."

Muthana was born to a Yemeni diplomat in 1994 and was issued an American passport despite some confusion about when her father's diplomatic post officially came to end. The U.S. government argues that Muthana's status as a U.S. citizen was issued in error because her father was in the country as a foreign official at the time of her birth. Muthana's lawyers and family claim that she was born after her father's post ended when the family had been issued refugee status due to unrest in Yemen.

Upon arriving in Syria to join ISIS in 2014, Muthana burned her U.S. passport and declared herself a part of the caliphate.

Students Walk Out to Protest Chick-fil-A at Football Games

A group of Oregon high school students organized by the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance club walked out of school last week in protest of the presence of a Chick-fil-A food truck at the school’s football games.

The students at West Linn High School walked out to protest the school’s use of Chick-fil-A as a food vendor at football games, reported KATU2, apparently because they view the presence of the popular fast-food chain to be part of an unsafe environment for LGBTQ students. They said some students have experienced harassment in classrooms and on sports teams.

The Gay-Straight Alliance reportedly said Chick-fil-A supports anti-LGBTQ organizations and charities.

As the group of students organized by the Gay-Straight Alliance walked out of school, another group also left the school wearing “Make America Great Again” hats and waving Chick-fil-A bags.

KATU2 reported officials at the high school said the Chick-fil-A food truck will remain at the football games throughout the season, but they will reconsider their vetting process for contracts with vendors in the future.

Why Pete Buttigieg Is The Most Destructive Candidate For Christianity

There’s nothing like seeing #PeteForPresident trending in fourth place nationwide on Twitter to remind you Pete Buttigieg is still very much in this presidential race.

In the crowded field of Democratic contenders for the White House in 2020, Buttigieg is near the top, polling behind only Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders. According to RealClearPolitics’ latest aggregate of polls, in the early primary state of Iowa, Buttigieg trails only Warren, holding 17.5 percent support — and for good reason.

Buttigieg’s resume glows with accolades and qualifications. He is a Harvard University graduate, a military veteran, and a Rhodes scholar, and each time he takes the stage, we are reminded he is a polished, articulate candidate who models presidential decorum. He embodies social progressivism and diversity, even being LGBT, and he speaks a farsighted message of unity and bipartisanship and faith. This multilingual, Midwest mayor of South Bend, Indiana, checks all the boxes, including religion.

And he is without a doubt the most dangerous candidate for Christianity and the gospel.

Impeachment Hearings: The 2 Biggest Moments!

Attorney General Barr blasts progressives' anti-Trump 'resistance'

In an address to the Federalist Society on Friday evening in Washington, Attorney General William Barr lashed out at the Democrat Party “resistance” against President Trump, saying it is a “incendiary” and “scorched earth” movement signaling that America is ruled by an occupying military power, not an elected executive.

“The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of ‘resistance’ against this administration, it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law,” Mr. Barr told attendees of the Society’s 2019 National Lawyers Convention, delivering a blistering indictment of today’s progressives who “treat politics as their religion.”

Mr. Barr did not specifically mention the ongoing impeachment push by House Democrats led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, and Rep. Adam Schiff of California. But Republicans have depicted the proceedings as just another bid in a three-year-long Democrat Party campaign to de-legitimize and destroy the president.

“Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘The Resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his administration,” Mr. Barr said Friday. “Now, ‘resistance’ is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous, indeed incendiary, notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.”

Mr. Barr laid blame squarely on Democrats.

Largo High School teacher charged with child abuse, assault after fight caught on video

A Prince George's County Public School teacher has been charged after a "very disturbing" fight between her and a student was captured on video, police say.

Authorities arrested 36-year-old Vivian Noirie on November 15 and charged her with physical child abuse and second-degree assault.

After investigating, police say the 17-year-old female student approached Noirie at approximately 10:25 a.m. The student was reportedly was upset with Noirie for contacting the student's parents the night before.

During that encounter, the student admits to stepping on the teacher's foot and bumping into the teacher with her shoulder. The teacher then repeatedly struck the student. School employees quickly stepped in and separated the teacher and student.

'We take this very seriously': Schiff accuses Trump of 'witness intimidation'

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff issued a veiled threat against President Trump for tweeting about former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch as she testified before the panel in Day Two of the public impeachment proceedings.

“Some of us here take witness intimidation very, very seriously,” Schiff, a California Democrat and former federal prosecutor, announced during the hearing.

“We saw today witness intimidation in real-time by the president of the United States,” Schiff added in a hallway interview with reporters during a break in the hearing.

Judge slams feds over murky stance on McCabe

A federal judge excoriated Justice Department officials Thursday for their handling of potential criminal charges against former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, saying the continued uncertainty over the prosecution was unfair to McCabe and the public.

“This is not a hard case,” U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton said. “I was a good prosecutor for a long time. Deciding whether or not you’re going to charge someone with false statements or perjury is not that hard, factually or legally — maybe politically, but not factually or legally.”

Walton, a George W. Bush appointee overseeing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by a watchdog group to obtain records about McCabe’s firing, complained at a hearing Thursday afternoon that the Justice Department claims about an ongoing potential prosecution of McCabe may have been a “smoke screen” to persuade the judge to forestall the case demanding documents.

“Shouldn’t I know whether the wool was being pulled over my eyes?” Walton said. “I do have concerns about whether I was being manipulated into stopping this case from moving forward.”

“Your Honor, the wool was not being pulled over your eyes,” Justice Department attorney Justin Sandberg said. He insisted claims lawyers made in a secret court filing and closed-door audience with the judge in September were accurate.

GONE IN 30 SECONDS: GOP Rep Takes Down Dem Witness In Record Time

Rep. Chris Stewart was skeptical as former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Friday.

Then the Utah Republican got his own chance to question her.

“I would now feel compelled to ask you, Madam Ambassador, as you sit here before us, very simply and directly, do you have any information regarding the President of the United States accepting any bribes?” Stewart asked, according to Fox News.

“No,” Yovanovitch said.

“Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the President of the United States has been involved with at all?” Stewart asked.

“No,” Yovanovitch said.

Then Stewart summed up the Democrats’ effort to impeach President Trump.

“The American people know this is nonsense,” he said. “The American people know this is unfair.”

Report: Health Websites Are Sharing Medical Data with Google, Facebook, Amazon

According to a recent report, many popular health websites such as WebMD are sharing private medical data with the Masters of the Universe.
 

A recent investigation by the Financial Times has revealed that popular health websites are sharing users’ private and personal medical data with big tech firms such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook as well as smaller data brokers and advertising firms such as Scorecard and OpenX.

The Financial Times analyzed over 100 health and medical websites including WebMD, Healthline, health insurance group Bupa, and parenting site Babycentre. The FT found that 79 percent of these sites used tracking cookies on visitors that could be utilized by third-party firms across the internet. This was done without users’ permissions making it illegal under E.U. GDPR guidelines.

The most common place for the data to be sent was found to be Google’s advertising arm DoubleClick which showed up on 78 percent of the sites that were tested by the Financial Times.

WILLIAMS: Young People Ignorant Of History

A recent survey conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by YouGov, a research and data firm, found that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three millennials saw communism as “favorable.”

Let examine this tragic vision in light of the Fraser Institute’s recently released annual study “Economic Freedom of the World,” prepared by Professors James Gwartney, Florida State University; Robert A. Lawson and Ryan Murphy of Southern Methodist University; and Joshua Hall, West Virginia University, in cooperation with the Economic Freedom Network.

Hong Kong and Singapore maintained their lead as the world’s most economically free countries — although China’s heavy hand threatens Hong Kong’s top ranking. Rounding out the top 10 are New Zealand, Switzerland, the United States, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Mauritius. By the way, after having fallen to 16th in 2016, the U.S. has staged a comeback to being in the top five economically free countries in the world.

What statistics go into the Fraser Institute’s calculation of economic freedom? The report measures the ability of individuals to make their own economic decisions by analyzing the policies and institutions of 162 countries and territories. These include regulation, freedom to trade internationally, size of government, sound legal system, private property rights and government spending and taxation.

Fraser Institute scholar Fred McMahon says, “Where people are free to pursue their own opportunities and make their own choices, they lead more prosperous, happier and healthier lives.”

SHOCKING VIDEO: Conservative Students Harassed And Intimidated By Leftist Student Mob

On Thursday, conservative students affiliated with the College Republicans and Turning Point USA (TPUSA) at Binghamton University in New York were harassed and intimidated by a massive mob of activists.

The two groups were “tabling” side-by-side in a public space on campus, according to John Restuccia, president of the College Republicans.

While the College Republicans were handing out flyers for an upcoming speech by famed economist Dr. Arthur Laffer sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), the individuals at the TPUSA table were handing out buttons and posters pertaining to conservative political ideology.

Restuccia left to attend a class, but was later called back to the site due to the burgeoning protest. He dialed the State University Police and headed over.

According to Restuccia, as well as Jon Lizak, vice president of Binghamton’s TPUSA chapter, the number of activists grew over the course of the protest until there were roughly 200 people haranguing the conservative students and disrupting their property.

Lacey Kestecher, chapter president of TPUSA at Binghamton, recorded approximately an hour and a half of footage from the frightening encounter, seven minutes of which can be seen below.

Berlin MSP: Fatal Vehicle Collision


Older models are more reliable than all-new vehicles, Consumer Reports study finds

Car shoppers have long been annoyed by friends warning them not to buy a brand-new model in its first year on the market because the automaker needs to work the bugs out of it. It turns out they weren’t all just blowing smoke.

The latest Consumer Reports member survey covering 400,000 cars from the 2000 to 2019 model years found that 45 percent of all-new and significantly redesigned vehicles have below-average reliability scores in their first year on the market. The non-profit organization said that vehicles are usually the most reliable the year before they get redesigned, which is often five to seven years after they are first introduced.

Among the newest cars, the top brands on the list were Lexus, Mazda, Toyota, Porsche, Genesis, Hyundai, Subaru, Dodge, Kia and Mini, while the least reliable lineups came from Cadillac, Alfa Romeo, Acura, Volkswagen, Jeep, Chevrolet, Volvo, Tesla GMC and Mercedes-Benz.

Trump grants clemency to 2 Army officers accused of war crimes, restores rank to Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher

President Trump has granted clemency to two Army officers accused or convicted of war crimes and restored Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher to the rank of chief petty officer after he was docked a pay grade after being convicted of posing for a photo with a dead Islamic State (ISIS) fighter, the White House announced Friday.

Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance could be released from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, as soon as Friday evening, six years after being found guilty of second-degree murder. Maj. Matt Golsteyn, a former Green Beret, will have the murder charge against him dropped.

"Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and an order directing the promotion of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward R. Gallagher to the grade of E-7, the rank he held before he was tried and found not guilty of nearly all of the charges against him," the White House said in a statement Friday night.

Worcester County Officials Outline Education Funding Concerns

SNOW HILL – In a show of solidarity, Worcester County’s elected officials and school system leaders joined together to express their education funding concerns to the Kirwan Commission.

More than a dozen Worcester County representatives, including county staff, commissioners and Worcester County Public Schools officials, traveled to testify in front of the Kirwan Commission. The commission solicited public input Tuesday as it prepares to make final recommendations regarding Maryland’s education system.

“I really think it was about unity,” Commissioner Chip Bertino said. “Coming together as a community to speak with one voice, that was extraordinary.”

Bertino, surrounded by the delegation of local representatives, spoke on behalf of the group Tuesday in front of the commission. He discussed the disparity of the state’s current education funding formula, which has local taxpayers funding 75% of the school system’s budget—more than any other public school jurisdiction in the state. He told commission members that because they’d worked the current formula into their recommendations, there would be no relief for Worcester County.

Billionaire hits Warren: ‘I gave away more in the year than she has in her whole f---ing lifetime’

Billionaire Leon Cooperman bashed Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren after she featured him in a campaign advertisement about her wealth tax.

Warren, 70, released an advertisement touting her “Ultra-Millionaire Tax” and the outrage it sparked with several billionaires who see it as detrimental to the American economy. The video shows a clip of Cooperman, 76, decrying her proposal as “bull” and flashed a sign over his face that read, “Charged with insider trading.”

Cooperman, an investor and CEO of Omega Advisors, was outraged with Warren’s advertisement. He addressed the situation in an interview with CNBC and noted that he had settled the insider trading case.

“In my opinion, she represents the worst in politicians as she’s trying to demonize wealthy people because there are more poor people than wealthy people,” he said, adding, “As far as the accusations of insider trading, I won the case.”

Deadline nears for Maryland uninsured-motorist debt amnesty

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland — Time is running out for uninsured motorists in Maryland to take advantage of a program that forgives 80 percent of uninsured-driving debts that became delinquent before 2017.

Debtors have until Dec. 31 to register for the program and begin repaying the remaining 20 percent of their total fines. If an individual registers and pays at least one-sixth of their remaining 20 percent of debt by the end of the year, they have until June 2020 to finish paying.

There are approximately 308,000 unique debtors, who combined have close to 400,000 total unpaid debts, according to Maryland Auto Chief Executive Officer Mark McCurdy.

The average debt is in the range of $2,400 to $2,500, McCurdy told Capital News Service. The fines are issued to drivers found operating a vehicle without insurance or allowing the coverage to lapse on a registered vehicle, and those debts prevent people from renewing their registration.

Wagner recalls WWII during OP Veterans Day

Along with abundant sunshine and mild temperatures, the Veterans Day tribute in Ocean Pines on Monday was highlighted by the memories of WWII Navy veteran Carroll Wagner.

“My charge today is to talk about my experience while serving during WWII,” he said.

Native to Baltimore, Wagner was born in 1927 and was winding up high school before answering the call to service from Uncle Sam upon reaching the age of 18.

“I began my senior year and while in high school joined the Navy,” he said. “It appeared the world was subsiding and I would finish high school when it ended.”

In early 1945, with WWII lurching towards the end of hostilities, Wagner was brought to attention after receiving a letter from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt ordering him to report for military service on Feb. 7.

“Which happened to be my 18th birthday and here I am a senior in high school,” he said.

While Wagner was completing boot camp at the U.S. Naval training center in Bainbridge, Maryland, President Roosevelt died and was succeeded by his vice-president, Harry Truman. By that point, Nazi leaders in Germany were surrendering.

“They knew I was coming,” he said.

Suspect in 'Potomac River Rapist' Cold Case Arrested

News outlets report 60-year-old Giles Daniel Warrick is now awaiting extradition from Horry County, South Carolina. He’s accused of raping 10 women and killing one of them between 1991 and 1998 in Washington, D.C. and its surrounding suburbs.

Authorities said DNA evidence matched family profiles in genealogy services, enabling investigators to narrow their search after interviewing Warrick’s relatives.

‘She started off in Somalia, how did that go?’: Trump mocks former US ambassador to Ukraine

President Trump attacked former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Twitter as she was testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee Friday morning.

Yovanovitch, a career foreign service officer, was removed from her post last spring and has pointed the finger at Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani for starting a smear campaign against her. Trump also referenced her in the July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which he asked for the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and Burisma, a Ukrainian company the younger Biden worked for.

"Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors," the president tweet shortly after the start of her testimony.

A federal court has partially reversed a lower court’s decision to prohibit prayers being broadcast on loudspeakers ahead of Christian schools’ sporting events, ruling that the ban violated free speech and free exercise rights.

The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) rule prohibited prayer at the Citrus Bowl prior to a state championship game between two Christian schools.

In Wednesday’s decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals Eleventh Circuit ruled that Cambridge Christian School’s argument has merit and litigation could continue, a press release from the First Liberty Institute, which is representing the school, said.

“No one should be shocked that two Christian schools would want to start their game with a prayer over the loudspeaker before kickoff, Jeremy Dys, special counsel for litigation and communication for First Liberty told Breitbart News. “The FHSAA’s categorical ban on prayer is the type of hostility toward religion the First Amendment forbids.”

Brett Kavanaugh Lauds Friends, Fellow Justices in First Speech Since Bitter Confirmation

Justice Brett Kavanaugh received heroic accolades at a glittering Federalist Society dinner in Washington’s Union Station on Thursday, where he delivered his first public remarks since his contentious confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh gave a punchy and light-hearted speech, punctuated in spaces with emotional recollections of his nomination to the high court.

“Last year, a lot of my friends put themselves on the line for me,” Kavanaugh said. “People risked their jobs and livelihoods. They were yelled at, insulted, and threatened.”

“I’m on a lifetime mission to thank all my friends,” he said elsewhere.

Public Educational Initiative In Arizona Instills Far-Left, ‘Social Justice’ Values

As The Daily Wire’s Hank Berrien reported, a far-left public educational initiative called Deep Equity is being increasingly adopted across the country.

As described by Corwin, an educational training initiative umbrella organization that describes itself as “aimed at producing real school improvement for equity and social justice,” Deep Equity “is a comprehensive and systemic professional development process aimed at producing the deep personal, professional, and organizational transformations that are necessary to create equitable places of learning for all of our nation’s children.”

Using unmistakable leftist language, the program “addresses the dynamics of power and privilege in a safe, engaging, and inspiring environment in which all educators are honored and valued as professionals,” as further described by Corwin.

The Daily Wire also quoted Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s highlighting of the Deep Equity program on his platform. Carlson described Deep Equity as follows:

Council Passes Moratorium On Ag Storage Tanks

SALISBURY – Officials in Wicomico County agreed this month to impose a moratorium on the issuance of building permits for certain agricultural storage tanks.

On Nov. 5, the Wicomico County Council voted to pass legislation declaring a moratorium on the issuance of building permits for agricultural storage tanks that hold waste, or sludge, from poultry renderings.

Earlier this year, Wicomico County Planning, Zoning and Community Development issued a building permit that would allow a local farmer to construct a three-million-gallon storage tank containing poultry by-products on his property in the area of Porter Mill Road. Since that time, several nearby residents have shared their concerns with the council regarding the potential smells and hazards associated with the tank.

While the moratorium on building permits would not affect that particular project, officials in Wicomico County argued it would allow for further review of the permitting process and zoning issues in agricultural areas.

Journalists Who Exposed Planned Parenthood’s ‘Baby Body Parts’ Trade Found Guilty

The jury in the “Baby Body Parts” trial of activist and journalist David Daleiden has delivered a blow to undercover journalism, declaring that secret filming is now illegal and can leave journalists open to massive damages.

Planned Parenthood was awarded almost $2 million for the filming after alleging activist journalist David Daleiden secretly recorded executives negotiating to sell baby body parts.

Peter Breen, a lawyer for Mr. Daleiden, said the judgement is a direct threat to undercover journalism in California and across the country.

“Undercover Journalism now comes with a $2 million price tag,” he said.

Trump on Roger Stone's Conviction: 'What About Crooked Hillary?'

President Donald Trump on Friday, after his former advisor Roger Stone was found guilty of several charges, demanded to know why his 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and several others were not also going to prison.

"So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn't they lie?" he posted on Twitter. "A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?"

Stone, a long-time friend and ally of the president, was convicted on all seven counts of an indictment accusing him of lying to Congress about pursuing emails Russia had hacked that were damaging to Clinton's 2016 election bid.

Jim Jordan Says Schiff is Hiding FOUR Transcripts

GOP hero Rep. Jim Jordan (OH) blasted Adam Schiff Friday following the impeachment show trial starring disgruntled fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

Schiff has been selectively leaking, and releasing transcripts and portions of transcripts from depositions taken in his secret bunker — Schiff does this to control the narrative and to damage Trump as much as he possibly can.

Schiff has yet to release FOUR transcripts from officials whose testimonies destroyed Schiff’s Trump impeachment train.

The reason for this is so Republican lawmakers cannot use the damaging information in the transcripts to question the impeachment witnesses in Schiff’s public show trials.

“What they [the American people] also haven’t seen yet are FOUR transcripts of people who have already been deposed, which means under House rules we cannot use that testimony in these proceedings,” Jim Jordan told reporters on Friday.

“We would like to use parts of the testimony from Mr. Morrison as an example, in the open hearings but we’re prohibited under House rules from doing that,” he added.

Recall, Tim Morrison was actually on the July 25 Trump-Zelensky phone call and disputes Schiff’s lies.
