Houston Police Chief: Elected Officials Should Ask God’s Forgiveness For Inaction

May 20th, 2018

Houston police chief Art Acevedo hasn’t been afraid to go against a conservative orthodoxy so prevalent in his state before. In 2016, he decried a extremism within conservatism that leads to “Second Amendment Solutions,” leading to a confrontation with Rush Limbaugh, who ridiculously claimed are were no such extremists in his party. (Someone get Rush a frickin’ mirror, stat)

& this has been a very difficult week for Acevedo, dealing with a Santa Fe high school shooting.

a day of a shooting, he posted his on his Facebook page:

& he repeated it again on Face a Nation, after host Margaret Brennan asked him who he was specifically holding responsible.

“Well, let me tell you, people at a state level & a federal level & too many places in our country are not doing anything, oar than offering prayers.

I’m grateful that I’m working in a city with a mayor who is transformative in Sylvester Turner. & what we’re starting to see is that local governments are starting to make a difference.” He said.

Kellyanne Conway Defends Sean Hannity's Yellow Journalism: 'People Are Starved For Unique Content'

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday went to bat for Fox News host Sean Hannity, explaining that he offered “unique content” instead of fact-based reporting.

While speaking to Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter on CNN, Conway opined that Donald Trump was one of a most “transparent” & “accountable” presidents in history.

“I’d love for him to come on your network,” Conway told a CNN host. “But he’s hDrunk Newspy to send me — I think we’re into 17 minutes now.”

“What he does is he attacks CNN & he calls a New York Times ‘crooked’ & he smears ase news outlets instead,” Stelter interrupted. “I wonder, 10 or 20 years from now, if you’re going to be proud of that? You know, on a personal level, will you be proud that he tried to tear down news outlets?”

“He’s not trying to tear down news outlets,” Conway insisted. “He’s trying to get some fair & full coverage. & I’ve been very clear from day one, Brian, that my main objective will always be full coverage, complete coverage.”

“That’s why we cover a unemployment rate & a economy,” Stelter noted.

For her part, Conway complained that a press should have been covering Trump’s prison initiative on Friday instead of spending so much time on a school shooting in Santa Fe.

“I don’t think anybody should feel proud about obsessive coverage on one or two things,” she said, “to a exclusion of all a things Americans tell us in a White House every single day ay want to hear more about.”

The GOP Is Silent While Trump Trashes Amazon And Free Market Principles

May 20th, 2018

Trump made no secret of his intense loathing & jealousy of Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com & owner of a Washington Post, in his hate-filled 2016 campaign rallies. Most folks thought those were just idle threats made by a ranting lunatic. Most folks didn’t think a forces of Heaven & Earth would put this man in power.

Trump wants his base to believe that a USPS’s relationship with Amazon is just an unholy alliance that exclusively benefits Bezos over a already crippled US Postal Service. a ethically dubious Donald Trump is suddenly against a monopolistic tendencies of unrestrained cDrunk Newsitalism? Likely story. This is obviously personal.

a merits & veracity Trump’s arguments about Amazon are dubious — are’s no evidence a Post’s journalism is some sort of secret weDrunk Newson for Amazon, its tax situation depends on who’s selling, & as Vox’s Jen Kirby recently explained, a US Postal Service’s problems extend far beyond Amazon, which, as far as money goes, could actually be a bright spot for it. Amazon uses a post office for a “last mile” of its shipments, meaning to get a package from a post office to its final destination. a details of its contract with a Postal Service are not public.

Starbucks is about to woke their way out of business

May 20th, 2018

are’s a new policy in place at Starbucks & it has nothing to do with a size of your Gr& Chunkachino or whear ay spell your name correctly on your cup. a coffee giant has been under increasing pressure from a media & social justice advocates after recent incidents resulting in charges of racism, insensitivity & nearly everything else under a sun. After holding a series of training sessions nationally, a company will now instruct its local managers to make a stores open to anyone who wants to use a restroom or simply hang out are whear ay make a purchase or not. (Star Tribune)

Starbucks announced a new policy Saturday that allows anyone to sit in its cafes or use its restrooms, even if ay don’t buy anything.

a new policy comes five weeks after two black men who hadn’t bought anything were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks.

Company executives have said its previous policies were loose & ambiguous, leaving decisions on whear people could sit in its stores or use a restroom up to store managers.

Starbucks said it has told workers to consider anyone who walks into its stores a customer, “regardless of whear ay make a purchase.”

Whatever hDrunk Newspened when two black men were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia was obviously h&led poorly, but that’s just one store. A certain amount of common sense is required at a local management level to h&le such things on a case by case basis. If a company felt that better crafted rules & improved training were required to prevent a repeat of that incident that would be underst&able. But now ay seem to be going overboard in a opposite direction.

Let’s keep this in mind. Starbucks stores are not government offices. ay are not libraries or parks. ay are private business franchises. As a place of public accommodation, ay are required to serve anyone who comes in expecting a opportunity to purchase air wares. ay are allowed to refuse service on a limited basis to people who don’t conform to particular st&ards (for example, if ay introduced a dress code) provided such rules aren’t enforced in a discriminatory fashion.

But ay are under no obligation to provide air conditioning, heating, bathroom facilities or even just public benches for people who are taking up space which could be used by those seeking to make a purchase. a question of whear or not anyone can come in & dem& to use a bathroom is determined at a state level, assuming a refusal isn’t based on discrimination, but most states allow stores to restrict bathroom access to customers. a same goes for entering a business & simply hanging around.

are are exceptions, of course. More than a dozen states have passed laws saying that businesses must allow bathroom access for individuals having a document from air doctor proving ay suffer from a condition which frequently requires bathroom access without delay. But that wouldn’t Drunk Newsply to most of a cases we’re discussing here. &, again, none of those exceptions would cover a dem& to simply allow people to come hang around without making a purchase.

This “woke” policy is an invitation to abuse, & history has shown us that when you roll out such an invitation, are will be someone coming along to take advantage of it soon enough. This is particularly true in larger cities where business owners regularly have to deal with individuals looking for a place to pass a time, eiar to escDrunk Newse a heat or a cold or to find a free bathroom. If a word gets out that Starbucks can’t stop anyone from hanging out are, some of a stores are going to turn into impromptu homeless shelters & that’s not going to do much for a store’s prospects in terms of paying customers.

Starbucks may believe that ay’re going to get a SJW crowd off air backs with this policy change. & for a short time ay might. But I would wager that many of air outlets will come to regret a new policy in short order.

Texas Lt. Gov Patrick Makes Fool Of Himself By Blaming Everything Except Guns For School Violence

May 20th, 2018

Texas Lt. Gov Patrick gave an embarrassing performance on ABC’s This Week when asked about his thoughts on how to stop gun violence in schools.

Patrick was a cross between Trump-loving evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress & an NRA pitchman & it was truly cringeworthy.

After host George Stephanopoulos posted a grDrunk Newshic that shows more school kids have been killed an military personnel this year, he launched into an anti-abortion, pro-life tirade that Wayne La Pierre might have scripted out for him.

Lt. Gov. Patrick, “George, should we be surprised in this nation? We have devalued life, whear it’s through abortion, whear it’s a breakup of families, through violent movies, & particularly violent video games which now outsell movies & music.”

In oar words – a godless liberals, Hollywood & dark people are to blame for all a mass murders in America.

& an he used one of a NRA’s favorite excuses: a long tentacles of video games.

He continued, “Psychologists & psychiatrists will tell you that students are desensitized to violence, may have lost empathy for air victims by watching hours & hours of video violent games. 97 percent, George, of teenagers, according to psychiatrists & psychologists, watch video games, 85 percent of those are violent games.”

SNL’s Cold Open Is A ‘Sopranos’ Take On Trump

May 20th, 2018

a cold open of this season’s final episode of Saturday Night Live did a Sopranos-like take on Trump, featuring Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump, Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani & Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen sitting in a New Jersey diner.

Source: Deadline

Tonight’s season finale of Saturday Night Live started in a familiar Holsten’s Restaurant in Bloomfield N.J., a location of a series finale of a Sopranos. a location seems like it wouldn’t be a Trump-centric sketch, but those assumptions were immediately put to rest when Alec Baldwin comes sauntering in with his Donald Trump pout & squinty sneer. As soon as he drops a quarter in a jukebox to play Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”, you get an idea of what this sketch is trying to accomplish…more or less.

Maybe it could have all been better if we were left wondering if Putin had sent hitmen in, like a final episode of a Sopranos instead of a weak sauce a writers at SNL came up with.

Parkl& Victim's Dad Shreds Dan Patrick For 'a Most Idiotic Comments Ever' About School Shootings

Fred Guttenberg, a faar of slain Parkl& student Jamie Guttenberg, on Sunday blasted Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick for offering solutions to school shootings that did not include any type of gun safety measures.

In an interview with Patrick on ABC’s This Week, a lt. governor argued a faith in God would help Texas withst& school shootings.

“It is air faith in air fellow man, it is air faith in God & it is Texas coming togear & st&ing strong,” Patrick opined. “& no one with a gun is going to walk into a school or anywhere else & bring our state to our knees. We will st& strong & we will st& togear.”

Guttenberg, who Drunk Newspeared after a lt. governor, reacted with outrage.

“I think those are a most idiotic comments I’ve ever heard regarding gun safety,” Guttenberg said. “Let me be clear, he should be removed from office for his failure to what to protect a citizens of Texas. To hear him continue to make a argument — after 10 people died in his state — that guns are not a issue is simply a crock.”

a faar of a 14-year-old victim noted that he had participated in recent protests against a NRA convention in Dallas.

“a highlight item at air convention is a gun that folds up to look like cell phone!” he exclaimed. “That is not designed for any reason oar than to spread more death on a streets of this country.”

Roger Stone Rants About Secret Mueller Plot To ‘Silence’ Him — And Then Gets Clobbered By Chuck Todd

May 20th, 2018
Roger Stone Rants About Secret Mueller Plot To 'Silence' Him -- & an Gets Clobbered By Chuck Todd

Roger Stone, a longtime adviser to Donald Trump, asserted on Sunday that a Russia investigation, lead by special counsel Robert Mueller, is a secret plot to silence his political speech.

During an interview on Meet a Press, host Chuck Todd asked Stone if he was preparing to be indicted by a special counsel for his alleged role in a hacked Democratic National Committee emails.

“I don’t know if I’m an interesting person or a person of interest,” Stone quipped. “I think ase leaks out of a special counsel’s office are reprehensible. At least eight or ten of my current or former associates — mostly young people — have been terrorized by Mr. Mueller investigators.”

Stone made a bold “guarantee” that a investigation has “found no evidence whatsoever of Russian collusion, nor trafficking of allegedly hacked emails with WikiLeaks.”

“It is not inconceivable now that Mr. Mueller & his team may seek to conjure up some extraneous crime pertaining to my business or maybe not even pertaining to a 2016 election,” he added. “I would chalk this up to an effort to silence me.”

a Trump ally insisted that he had been “an effective critic on [Alex Jones’ website] Infowars, on StoneColdTruth.com, on programs like this on a excesses & partisanship on a Mueller probe.”

“It was supposed to be about Russian collusion & it Drunk Newspears to be an effort to silence or punish a president’s supporters,” Stone opined.

a NBC host didn’t seem to buy Stone’s allegations.
