A petition is calling for the removal of several members of an Alabama high school cheer team after a photo appeared on Instagram showing them posing with a T-shirt that depicted the Confederate battle flag and the phrase “I love redneck boys.”

Iran Accidentally Sinks Its Fake American Aircraft Carrier by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Ooops.

An Iranian barge modified to resemble an American aircraft carrier sank near the Strait of Hormuz. The “carrier,” built to take abuse in propaganda videos made by the Iranian regime, unexpectedly turned on its side near the Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas. The fake carrier is now a hazard for local shipping, and experts believe it will need to be towed away and salvaged.

The unnamed barge was recently a star in Iran’s “Great Prophet 14” exercises. The annual air and naval exercises are used to showcase all the ways Iran believes it can stand up to American military power. In last month’s exercises, Iranian forces launched an anti-ship missile at the barge, and commandos fast-roped onto the deck of the make-believe ship.

Nothing unexpected.

Fox News Channel viewers are usually a loyal bunch, but thousands looked for the “off” switch during last week’s telecast of civil rights icon John Lewis’ funeral.

Fox News, like the broadcast and other cable news networks, aired Lewis’ funeral last Thursday, when former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama spoke.

During the hour before the funeral’s start, Fox averaged 1.67 million viewers, the Nielsen company said. In the same hour, MSNBC had 1.28 million viewers and CNN had 1.25 million.

Once the funeral started, half of Fox’s viewers slipped away while the audience increased for its rivals, Nielsen said.

During the 2 p.m. hour, Fox had 595,000 viewers, Nielsen said. MSNBC had 2.25 million and CNN had 1.97 million at the same time.

Things were back to normal by the time Fox News was airing “The Five” at 5 p.m. Eastern. That show had 3.2 million, while CNN and MSNBC combined reached 3.85 million.

But on the plus side, the Republicans managed to torpedo your $600.

The U.S. economy, as measured by real GDP, contracted at a record-shattering 32.9% last quarter, according to government data released Thursday.

The figure reflects how the coronavirus pandemic has clobbered the U.S. economy with unprecedented speed and furor as it shut down large swaths of businesses over the past few months.

For comparison, the previous worst quarterly GDP plunge was a fall of 10% in 1958.

Separately, the Labor Department also said Thursday that another 1.4 million workers filed jobless claims last week, another indicator of the ongoing anguish that the pandemic has caused to the economy as a whole.

Pervy Queens pastor had vile texts with 15-year-old boy by Nemacolin in news

I know you folks like these stories.

The pastor of a Queens church was accused Wednesday of vile sexts with a 15-year-old boy in Westchester.

St. Pancras Church Pastor Francis Hughes, 65, swapped nauseating messages with the boy about masturbation and other unholy topics.

“How would you like to be spoiled by your grandpa?” Hughes allegedly asked. “That makes me your sugar daddy….And you’re the sugar baby, lol.”

The teen sent Hughes three images of his privates in February, prosecutors say.

Hughes, who headed the Catholic church in Glendale, lied and told the teen he was a part-time college professor and counselor, prosecutors said. The perv priest met the teen through Grindr, according to prosecutors.

It was nice to have a president who did not embarrass himself.

Former President Barack Obama will speak at the funeral for U.S. congressman and civil rights hero John Lewis on Thursday, according to CNN.

Ex-commanders-in-chief Bill Clinton and George W. Bush will also attend the ceremony for Lewis at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, CNN reported, citing sources.

Lewis died earlier this month at age 80 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Obama awarded Lewis the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011, and the 58-year-old said in a statement this month that “when I was elected a U.S. Senator, I told him that I stood on his shoulders.”

Slaughtered Innocents – Marijuana’s Vicious Legacy by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Remember Prohibition?

The recent stabbing slaughter of the helpless innocent little 3-year-old birthday girl at her birthday party in Boise Idaho is the latest horrific example of soaring rates of the murder and maiming of innocents by vicious drug-enraged psychopathic maniacs. See at link:

News of that blood-soaked tragedy came on the same day as toxicology reports were published documenting marijuana use by the Travis County Texas Church shooter who slaughtered innocent children and other church-goers there last year.

A major contributor to the growing continuation of such massacres of innocents is the failure of most government and health officials to conduct and publish the results of forensic drug testing of all such suspects to disclose the ”Unknown Cause” often cited in most other massacres of innocents.

That verification of marijuana use by the mass murderer in the Texas Church massacre adds to the growing evidence that marijuana is a major driving force behind other sadistic mass murder of innocents. See example. Others follow:

The mass shooter who blew Rep. Gabby Giffords’ brains out was found to be a big pot user. And the maniacal group of youths who viciously torture-murdered little Catherine Fuller in Washington D.C. had just used marijuana, see at Google “The Infamous Brutal Murder of Catherine Fuller.”

Another sadistic child slaughter and the murderer’s connection to marijuana is documented in news accounts of the knife slaughter of an innocent 8-year-old child at play in Alexandria, Virginia, see at the link:

The involvement of Marijuana in senseless violence has been documented in thousands of other mass murders. But in their commitment to the deification of pot, many journalists will not ask for forensic drug test results in reporting these otherwise unexplainable irrational incidents. Thus, with many studies now documenting the connection between marijuana use and irrational violent behavior, federal legislation will be needed to force that truth to be publicized to overcome the de facto cover-up of that vital information.

But with massive amounts of drug money influencing lawmakers to continue enabling the marijuana traffickers to expand their child-brain-poisoning markets throughout this nation, such legislation will not happen without endangered and terrorized citizens rising up and throwing out of office all drug-money-corrupted public officials and hug-a-thug politicians. They are the ultimate driving force behind such tragedies as the huge Las Vegas mass shooting, the Boston Marathon bombing, soaring school shootings, the Annapolis newsroom murders and now this horrific child’s birthday party stabbing death.

Only then will we be able to elect and appoint statesmen and women who will expose the truth about marijuana to free our people from the slavery of drug addiction and its resulting death and destruction.

Growing mass murders, soaring drug-related depression, suicide and overdose deaths all due to an “Unknown Cause?”  This trend will continue to spiral out-of-control upward unless this nation wakes up from its drug-money influenced denial and finally realizes…       IT’S MARIJUANA, STUPID!

And then we need to begin punishing those responsible commensurate with the horror, tragedy, and grief currently destroying children, families and communities throughout this nation.

Turkey ‘re-conquers’ Hagia Sophia amid international disapproval by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Oh my Goodness! This is It! —————————

Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia on Friday hosted its first Islamic prayers in 85 years, despite fierce criticism of the Turkish government’s campaign to revert the building to a mosque after being a museum for decades. For President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the much-publicized congregational worship represented the “conquest” of the 1,500 year-old domed monument.

Curtains hide Christian mosaics and symbols at prayer times. The head of the Turkish Directorate of Religious Affairs, Ali Erbas, gave the Friday sermon with an Ottoman sword in hand. He read verses about conquest from the Qur’an and gave a stirring, almost provocative speech about “the ones” who turned the Hagia Sophia into a museum being “damned,” an indirect reference perhaps to the founder of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Supporters of the conversion campaign saw its successful outcome as a source of national and religious pride, while opponents were concerned about keeping modern Turkey’s secular legacy intact

I understand the media is the Enemy of the People. Someone said that.

Local television stations owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group are set to air a conspiracy theory over the weekend that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top expert on infectious diseases, was responsible for the creation of the coronavirus.

The baseless conspiracy theory is set to air on stations across the country in a segment during the program "America This Week" hosted by Eric Bolling. The show, which is posted online before it is broadcast over the weekend, is distributed to Sinclair Broadcast Group's network of local television stations, one of the largest in the country. A survey by Pew Research Group earlier this year showed that local news was a vital source of information on the coronavirus for many Americans, and more trusted than the media overall.

Columbus was a man of faith (Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania) by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Most recently we witnessed an attack on our history as Americans. Images of our Nation’s Fathers have been defaced, including that of Christopher Columbus in Wilkes-Barre.

Perhaps those who cause havoc in our city streets fail to understand the true historical value of these men and women of our past.

Christopher Columbus was a man of God. His own sea vessel was named after the Mother of God, The Santa Maria. A reading of Columbus’s writings, along with the testimony of his contemporaries, reveals evidence that Columbus was a man of deep devotion who took his Catholic faith seriously, says author Benjamin Broussard.

At sunset 90 men stood on the decks of three boats, led in prayer by Christopher Columbus, singing the Salve Regina hymn which rang out across the Atlantic.

Columbus had promised his crew that he would turn back had they not spotted land by the Spanish feast day of the Virgin Mary, ‘Our Lady of the Pillar’. He had faith that Our Lady would not abandon the enterprise he had worked so hard to bring about.

As Columbus later knelt on the beach, he gave thanks to God, offering prayers such as the Credo, and the Te Deum in Latin. He proceeded to claim the new land for his sovereigns, but not before first claiming it for his Divine Master, giving it the name San Salvador (Holy Savior).

One of Columbus’s contemporaries, Bartolome de las Casas, described him as a man of righteousness and deep piety who read the divine office like a churchman, hated blasphemy and profane swearing, and was also devoted to Saint Francis – was a Third Order Franciscan.

We should not compare any wrong thinking of men of the 1400s with what we know today.

Upon his death in 1506, on the Vigil, feast of Christ’s Ascension, surrounded by his fellow Franciscans and his sons, Columbus’s departing words were “O Lord I Commend my spirit.”

American Jesuit Father John Hardon would remark, “It is one thing to say that Columbus discovered America. It is something else to realize that he opened the door to the most phenomenal spread of Christianity since the time of Saint Paul.”

Brooklyn Hasidic man accused of ramming car door into Black FDNY firefighter, calling him ‘n-----' and threatening to ‘go to war’ over parking dispute by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Sounds like something from Seinfeld.

A Hasidic man, in a racist meltdown over a parking space outside a Brooklyn firehouse, slammed his car door into a Black firefighter’s knee and called the man a “n-----” before fleeing the ugly scene, authorities said Friday.

The hate-fueled motorist slapped another firefighter’s arm and blocked a firetruck inside the bays at Engine Company 211-Ladder Company 119 on Hooper St. in South Williamsburg during his rampage as the Bravest squared off with the unhinged man last Sunday, according to officials.

Jacob Deutsch, 55, allegedly hurled the racial epithet at the 42-year-old firefighter and threatened to “go to war” against the man’s colleagues after he was threatened with a summons for pulling his brand new Acura in a spot reserved for FDNY vehicles.

But authorities said Deutsch did not go quietly.

“Hey a-------, don’t write a ticket!” he screamed during the 10 a.m. confrontation, according to court papers. As he pulled out of the first spot, Deutsch then parked directly outside the firehouse’s bay doors, blocking a fire truck that was pulled outside to be washed. He then allegedly exited the vehicle to threaten the firefighters.

Now I see the problem right here....

Many people are already saying they’re not going to wear a mask. Wearing a mask will not protect you from any type of virus. Standing six feet apart will protect you. If, you want an idea of how small viruses are, view electron microscope photos of viruses on cells. Might as well be the space capsule landing on the moon. Covid-19 is a flu and for most it was like “I think I’m coming down with something, and the next day, nope I’m not.”

I for one will not be wearing a mask. There are many Quacks out there that don’t know what they’re talking about.

James' group plans to donate $100,000 to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, one of the key organizations behind the 2018 ballot measure that restored the right to vote to the felon population in the state. The money will help ex-felons pay off any outstanding court debts associated with their convictions so they can register to vote.

Top NYPD chief says cops ‘shouldn’t be afraid’ of accidentally breaking city’s anti-chokehold law because NYC district attorneys won’t prosecute by Nemacolin in news

Well, that's a relief.

Cops shouldn’t fear accidentally breaking the city’s new law restricting their use of chokeholds on criminal suspects because no city district attorney will prosecute them, the NYPD’s Chief of Department told a closed-door meeting of police brass.

“We can’t be afraid. We’ve got every D.A. come out and say they’re not going to charge that,” Chief Terence Monahan said at a recent CompStat meeting, at which department brass discuss crime trends.

“We can’t be afraid to do what we do. We can’t walk away,” Monahan bellowed at the meeting.

Before we invaded Panama we had to burn bunches of documents. Eventually, we resorted to using those steal barbecues in the picnic areas. I signed receipts for sealed envelopes and then watched them burn. Shows you how vital I was to the war effort.

New York To Consider Ban on Retail Pet Sales by Nemacolin in news

Tyranny!

A ban on the sale of pets in retail stores, while also encouraging their adoption, is being considered today by the state Senate.

The legislation is meant to address so-called "puppy mills" that animal advocates have sought to stem in recent years.

At issue is the sale of animals in retail settings, which supporters of the bill say encourage an industry in which pets are brought up in unsafe conditions. The legislation, backed by Sen. Mike Gianaris of Queens, would also create space for the adoption of animals.

The measure would cover the retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits.
