Gov.Kristi Noem shoots puppy “less than worthless” and pet goat ''smells disgusting''

No.1290325 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
S. Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R), who is being eyed as a potential running mate to Donald Trump, admitted to shooting and killing a puppy she called “less than worthless” — along with her “disgusting” goat — in her new book.

According to The Guardian, Noem’s unreleased book, No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward, details how her effort to train her aggressive female dog for hunting pheasant was unsuccessful.

The Republican leader said she can do anything “difficult, messy and ugly” if necessary. Noem explained how she had hoped the puppy named Cricket would prove to be an efficient hunter at a local pheasant hunt but things quickly got out of control.

“I hated that dog,” Noem writes, adding that Cricket had proved herself “untrainable”, and “less than worthless … as a hunting dog”.

“At that moment,” Noem says, “I realised I had to put her down.”

Noem, who also represented her state in Congress for eight years, got her gun, then led Cricket to a gravel pit.

“It was not a pleasant job,” she writes, “but it had to be done.”

The governor also wrote about how she killed a “nasty and mean” male goat because it had not been castrated.

She describes the goat as smelling “disgusting, musky, rancid”.

Democrats vote for election fraud

Stamford Connecticut, plagued by Democrat election fraud (see: Democrat Party Chief Convicted of 28 felony counts of election fraud just had legislation shot down by democrats which would have required 1 year jail time for election fraud - the city has been plagued by Democrat election fraud with many convictions, but democrats are not serving any jail time for their felonies
Democrats resoundingly voted to support election fraud and their recently convicted party Chief.
HARTFORD — The law-writing Judiciary Committee on Friday killed legislation that would have created mandatory jail time for people convicted of a wide range of election-related fraud.

The bill, which would have required a minimum sentence of one year in prison for anyone convicted of election fraud. It was voted down by Democrats who have a 24-13 majority.

Democrats on the Judiciary Committee opposed the bill which was in response to the irregularities in last September's Democratic mayoral primary in Bridgeport, which included video of people allegedly placing multiple absentee ballots into a collection box.

"We saw on video, effectively, some election interference and the Republican caucus, both the House and Senate, have been very forthright in making sure people understand our desire to address these problems," said Sen. Rob Sampson of Wolcott, a ranking Republican on the GAE Committee. "There are a number of election-related crimes, everything from election officials interfering with a tabulator machine or producing improper ballots, to people that are actually engaged in ballot harvesting and interfering with elections. All of those things are already crimes, but to my knowledge, no one has ever served a moment of jail time in Connecticut for any of those things in the past, despite the fact that there having been convictions."

NY Democrat Kevin Parker claims law he voted for is unconstitutional

No.1293161 View ViewReplyOriginalReport

A Brooklyn state senator claims the law allowing a rape lawsuit against him to move forward was unconstitutional — even though he actually voted for the legislation and then bragged about it.

In court records filed this month, notoriously hot-headed pol Kevin Parker formally denied the rape allegations against him. But he also went a step further, asserting that the Adult Survivors Act, which allowed the related lawsuit against him to proceed, was unconstitutional.

The now-expired act permitted alleged victims to file civil lawsuits against their accused attackers within a certain window even if the state’s statute of limitations had run out on their claims.

Parker was accused of the 2004 alleged attack in November 2023 in a claim that made it just under the wire.

The state senator, along with every other member of the state Senate, had voted for the legislation in 2021.

Parker even touted his support of the law in a statement in which he denied the rape charges against him shortly after they were levied in November.

University endowments show few signs of direct Israel, defense holdings
School investments are targets of Pro-Palestinian groups calling for “divestment,” even if the ties aren’t always clear.

By Todd C. Frankel

As some universities strike deals with pro-Palestinian student groups to discuss calls for school endowments to stop investing in Israel and defense stocks, an examination of available public documents by The Washington Post finds few direct holdings in either by the largest public school endowments, underscoring the difficulty in any potential attempt to ultimately satisfy protesters’ divestment demands.

The simple slogans of protest are running headlong into the intricacies of modern finance.

At the University of California at Los Angeles, the recent pro-Palestinian protests have echoed with a rallying cry heard at campus protests nationwide in the wake of the Israel-Gaza war: They want the university to cut financial ties with Israel. “Divest NOW” was how one sign near the protesters’ encampment this week put it.

Those demands came despite the students having little information about where U.S. college endowments actually put their money. The schools — which sit on holdings worth a staggering $850 billion combined — must disclose some of their largest public stakes in annual regulatory filings but are not required to fully disclose their holdings. They generally refuse to divulge precise details behind their investments. Even public universities’ annual reports and regulatory filings are light on specifics.

Man or bear? A viral question has spawned scary responses
By AJ Willingham, CNN
Published 10:00 AM EDT, Mon May 6, 2024


Another day, another hypothetical scenario tearing people apart on social media. However, this cultural discourse has some sharp teeth.

The question, directed towards women, seems simple: Would you rather be alone in the woods with a man or a bear?

While there’s no unanimous answer, a good number of women on TikTok, Instagram and X have made it clear they’d prefer the bear. This has sparked anger among some men online, but more than that, it has snowballed into a valuable discussion about violence against women and how danger doesn’t always take the shape of a wild animal on the prowl.

Fresh chaos, arrests on US college campuses as police flatten camp at UCLA

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -Police forcibly removed scores of defiant pro-Palestinian protesters at several colleges on Thursday, including taking down an encampment at UCLA in a jarring scene that underscored the heightened chaos that has erupted at universities this week.

In the pre-dawn hours, helmeted police swarmed a tent city set up at the University of California in Los Angeles, using flash bangs and riot gear to push through lines of protesters who linked arms in a futile attempt to halt their advance.

Los Angeles police said on social media that 210 people were arrested at UCLA, and hundreds of arrests were made at other universities overnight and on Thursday.

"I'm a student here," one UCLA protester told cameras as he was led away, his hands bound. "Please don't fail us. Don't fail us."

Hours later, the student, who would only give his first name as Ryan, was back on campus and vowed he would not stop fighting.

NPR editor Uri Berliner resigns after essay accusing outlet of liberal bias

No.1288359 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

A senior business editor at National Public Radio has resigned after writing an essay for an online news site published last week accusing the outlet of a liberal bias in its coverage.

In a Wednesday post on X, Uri Berliner included a statement in what he said was his resignation letter to NPR President and CEO Katherine Maher.

"I am resigning from NPR, a great American institution where I have worked for 25 years," Berliner wrote in the post. "I don't support calls to defund NPR. I respect the integrity of my colleagues and wish for NPR to thrive and do important journalism. But I cannot work in a newsroom where I am disparaged by a new CEO whose divisive views confirm the very problems at NPR I cite in my Free Press essay."

On Friday, Berliner was suspended for five days without pay, NPR confirmed Tuesday, a week after his essay in the Free Press, an online news publication, where he argued the network had "lost America's trust" and allowed a "liberal bent" to influence its coverage, causing the outlet to steadily lose credibility with audiences

Left wing activist sentenced to 6 years for Jan 6

Left wing activist John Earle Sullivan, aka "Chaos Agent", "Jayden X", is sentenced to 6 years for his hole in Jan 6. He was the guy who broke in and filmed Ashley Babbit dying.

According to the article he is a left wing activist being held in isolation away from the other Jan 6 defendants for his own safety.
Utah man who recorded fatal Jan. 6 Capitol shooting sentenced to 6 years

A Utah man who recorded himself inciting violence and breaking a window before filming the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt outside the House chamber during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack was sentenced Friday to six years in prison.

John Earle Sullivan, 29, was paid $90,875 for his videos before he was convicted at trial. A jury found him guilty in November of rioting and obstructing Congress’s certification of the 2020 election results, both felonies, and of five misdemeanor counts.

Prosecutors said Sullivan was a self-described activist with anarchist views who brought a tactical vest, a gas mask, a megaphone and a knife to the riot. Seeking a prison term of a little more than seven years, Assistant U.S. Attorneys Rebekah Lederer and Michael Barclay said Sullivan “shared a desire to see the government burn” and the vote certification stopped.

Defense attorney Steven Kiersh said Sullivan was born in Virginia, was adopted by a now-retired Army lieutenant colonel and his wife, and moved with them to Utah, where he trained to be an Olympic speed skater before injuries stopped him. Kiersh cited more than a dozen letters from friends and family who described Sullivan as “much different” than what the jury saw.

Sullivan has been held in protective custody in isolation at the D.C. jail, where authorities deemed that he held opposing political views and that housing him with other Jan. 6 defendants would be a “threat to his physical safety"

We need to get rid of legislative immunity. shit like California's fee shifting bullshit and Washington's judge shopping is proof that all this shit is in bad faith. Make it so any politician who votes for and any governor that signs a gun law that is found to be unconstitutional has to pay back the state and the plaintiff all their legal fees and goes to jail or is hanged.

When a Cowlitz County judge ruled last week that Washington’s ban on high- capacity magazines is unconstitutional, he added one line, on Page 43 of his 55-page opinion, that could just be a little-noticed throwaway, or could prove shockingly prescient.

There are, Judge Gary Bashor wrote, “few, if any, historical analogue laws by which a state can justify a modern firearms regulation.”

The high-capacity magazine ban, Bashor wrote, pointing to U.S. Supreme Court precedent, fails because there are no “relevantly similar” laws from around 1791, when the Second Amendment was adopted.

Bashor’s ruling was immediately placed on hold, and the state’s ban on high-capacity magazines remains in effect, while the state Supreme Court considers the issue.

'Didn't watch the movie?' Republican casts Trump as the fascist villain in 'May the Fourth' post

No.1293055 View ViewReplyOriginalReport

The North Carolina Republican Party on Saturday came under fire for a Star Wars-themed post meant to celebrate the "May the Fourth" internet holiday and promote Donald Trump.

The official account of the North Carolina Republican Party on Twitter, posted an image showing Trump holding a lightsaber. The text says, "May the Fourth Be With You," which is a play on the Star Wars line, "May the force be with you."

The problem, as social media users were quick to point out, is that the ex-president was shown with a red lightsaber. According to Vox, "Sith usually use red-hued" lightsabers, such as the one Darth Vader wields.

National security attorney Bradley Moss wondered if the state GOP outpost was ignorant.

"You gave him... a red lightsaber? Do you know anything?" he asked Saturday.

Democrat Harry Sisson said, "You know the dudes who have the red lightsabers are the bad guys, right? Didn’t watch the movie I guess?"

@Venti__Poet chimed in in response to the post, "At least you know he is on the dark side."

@cj_bria said, "So, he’s a Sith Lord? Sounds about right!"

User Nick Anderson, @NickAnderson217, had a slightly different take from others.

"People are too hung up on the fact it's red... y'all why did they make his saber so small?" Anderson asked.

One user, @t3hrobzlqx, looked into things a bit.
