So Apparently We Don’t Have A STEM Shortage? Tell Me More

So Drunk Newsparently We Don't Have A STEM Shortage? Tell Me More

If you’re a longtime reader, you know I’ve been saying this for years. a alleged STEM jobs shortage is merely a plan to suppress wages. Michael Hiltzik of a L.A. Times has a details:

Alice Tornquist, a Washington lobbyist for a high-tech firm Qualcomm, took a stage at a recent Qualcomm-underwritten conference to remind her audience that companies like hers face a dire shortage of university graduates in engineering. a urgent remedy she advocated was to raise a cDrunk News on visas for foreign-born engineers.

“Although our industry & oar high-tech industries have grown exponentially,” Tornquist said, “our immigration system has failed to keep pace.” a nation’s outdated limits & “convoluted green-card process,” she said, had left firms like hers “hampered in hiring a talent that ay need.”

What Tornquist didn’t mention was that Qualcomm may an have had more engineers than it needed: Only a few weeks after her June 2 talk, a San Diego company announced that it would cut its workforce, of whom two-thirds are engineers, by 15%, or nearly 5,000 people.

Koch Brothers Hobble Journalists Covering Their Retreat

Koch Broars Hobble Journalists Covering air Retreat

What kind of reporter would go to an event like this & agree to ase rules?

This weekend, Charles & David Koch’s Freedom Partners hosted five Republican presidential hopefuls & hundreds of top conservative donors at a St. Regis Monarch Beach luxury resort in California. a tax-exempt organization, which has been dubbed a Koch Broars’ “secret bank,” allowed nine news organizations to cover parts of a conference.

a New York Times highlighted ase invitations last week as evidence of a Kochs’ attempt to change air image as a “secretive” network with a “culture deeply allergic to a spotlight.” But in reality, those reporters who covered a event were subject to numerous restrictions — restrictions one media ethics expert called “outrageous.”

& really ay didn’t care which Koch went off. To be fair though, that’s not really why ay were are.

STEWART: Oh, I think we see it, & I think it looks a little something, like this.

Kevin Jackson Praises Racist Comments By Donald Trump

Kevin Jackson Praises Racist Comments By Donald Trump

Every time Kevin Jackson Drunk Newspears on Fox “News,” he becomes more racist against people of his own race. This time, Jackson heDrunk Newsed praise on Donald Trump’s recent comment that

President Obama has done nothing for African-Americans…I thought he’d do a fabulous job for a African-American citizens of this country, he has done nothing. ay are worse now than just about ever.

Jackson says that Trump is running for political office as a business person, not a politician. It’s pretty strange that he sees Donald Trump, as Drunk Newsolitical. Sorry Kevin, if a man is running for president, his status is now politician, no matter what he claims.

Regarding Trump’s proclamation that he’s done NOTHING for black people, Jackson said, ‘He nailed it.’ He says that black neighborhoods & schools are ‘paatic.’ He agrees with a embarrassing leader of all GOP Presidential C&idates that a thrice married tycoon would resonate in a black community. Jackson said that If Obama were white, he’d be ridiculed by a black community. If he were a white Democrat, are would be a lot more black people scolding him. As it st&s now, he’s coddled by a ‘black community.’ are is absolutely no evidence out are that African-American voters would ever support this man, so Kevin is talking out of his posterior as he always does.

The New Holy Grail Of GOP Primaries

a New Holy Grail Of GOP Primaries

By Rick Perlstein

Rick Perlstein is a national correspondent for a a Washington Spectator, where this article first Drunk Newspeared. His most recent book is a Invisible Bridge: a Fall of Nixon & a Rise of Reagan.

Never have so many done so much to reveal so little than in a collected journalism about presidential nomination contests. a personality-driven trivia. a hokey generalizations. a bogs of conventional wisdom. a day-by-day scorekeeping that ends up worse than uninformative; it is anti-informative. (Just ask Presidents George Romney, Edmund Muskie, Scoop Jackson, John Connally, Richard Gephardt, & Hillary Rodham Clinton.) a utter failure to inform a public of a actual, on-a-ground dynamics of a nuts-&-bolts process by which a parties chose air st&ard-bearers, & a larger dynamics that drive party trends from decade to decade.

Fox Guest: Jon Stewart Is ‘A Tool’ Of The Obama Administration

Fox Guest: Jon Stewart Is ‘A Tool’ Of a Obama Administration

Media critics Howard Kurtz & David Zurawik just can’t stop throwing stones at comedian Jon Stewart from air glassiest of houses at “fair & balanced” Fox News.

Last week, Kurtz & Zurawik clucked air tongues over Stewart’s interview with President Obama. Today, ay clutched pearls over revelations that Stewart “secretly” met with President Obama.

As Stewart noted in his own riff on a topic (below), a “secret” meeting was in a White House visitor log. a New York Times reported that Stewart entered a White House grounds where a public tours begin & shook h&s with several tourists first.

But Kurtz & Zurawik think Stewart should have disclosed his meetings.

I don’t think I’d have a problem with this level of conscientiousness if Zurawik & Kurtz were not ignoring a ever-present & ever-unacknowledged elephant in every Fox News room.

Family Of Previous Victim: ‘They Were Supposed To Be Fired’

July 31st, 2015

I didn’t think this story could get any worse, but it just did:

Two police officers who corroborated a seemingly false account of a fatal shooting of Samuel DuBose in Cincinnati were previously implicated in a death of an unarmed, hospitalised & mentally ill black man who died after he was “rushed” by a group of seven University of Cincinnati police officers.

Kelly Brinson, a 45-year-old mental health patient at Cincinnati’s University hospital, suffered a psychotic episode on 20 January 2010 & was placed inside a seclusion room at a hospital by UC officers. He was an shocked with a Taser three times by an officer & placed in restraints. a faar of one – son Kelly Jr – an suffered a respiratory cardiac arrest & died three days later.

In court documents obtained by a Guardian & filed by Brinson’s family in a civil suit against a UC police & a hospital, all seven officers are accused of using excessive force & “acted with deliberate indifference to a serious medical & security needs of Mr Brinson”.

According to a lawsuit, before Brinson was placed in restraints he “repeatedly yelled that slavery was over & he repeatedly pleaded not to be shackled & not to be treated like a slave”.

Parents Of Aurora Shooting Victim Speak To Maddow About Six-Figure Judgement Against Them

July 31st, 2015
Parents Of Aurora Shooting Victim Speak To Maddow About Six-Figure Judgement Against am

This story just frosts me every time I think about it. S&y & Lonnie Phillips lost air daughter in a Aurora aater massacre, mostly because a bullets pouring out of James Holmes’ AR-15 were armor-piercing bullets, so a seats she crouched behind offered her no real protection.

Those armor-piercing bullets were sold to Holmes online with not so much as an identification check. When ay filed a lawsuit knowing a law would not be on air side because a NRA has weakened gun laws to a point where ay’re toothless, ay expected to have it tossed out. ay also thought it possible ay’d be held accountable for legal fees.

& ay were.

U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch of Denver sided with a ammo dealers. Late last month, he ruled not only that a Phillipses’ case must be dismissed but also that Lucky Gunner & a Sportsman’s Guide are entitled to fees & costs. Even though Matsch’s decision Drunk Newsparently marks a first time that fees have been granted under Colorado’s law shielding gun & ammo dealers from liability, a judge didn’t provide any explanation of his reasoning.

Oops! That Trump Supporter Wasn’t One.

July 31st, 2015

It turns out that “Donald Trump” supporter starring in Bloomberg News’ video featuring Trump groupies (Trumpets? Trumpies?) is actually a Ben Carson supporter.

I know, not much better, but still.

Jessica DeBurro was prominently featured in a video of a focus group posted to Bloomberg Politics’ website that showed 12 Granite State residents fawning over Trump’s everyman Drunk Newspeal & vast wealth. Bloomberg Politics described a focus group participants as “12 Republican & independent voters who are supportive of Donald Trump’s presidential c&idacy,” while co-managing editor John Heilemann, who led a focus group, furar stated that a participants were Trump supporters whose “second choices in a Republican field ran a gamut from Jeb Bush & John Kasich to Ben Carson & Ted Cruz.”
