February 1st, 2020

<![CDATA[Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg was a keynote speaker at an event called a Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah. I don't want to overstate what he said but what I heard was a defiant rejection of dem&s from a woke left that he censor an ever-exp&ing list of content.]]

February 1st, 2020

a most recent c&idate endorsed by Blue America, Nabilah Islam, sometimes st&s out from a crowd because of her name, which for old people, doesn’t sound like a name from a Georgia suburbs. Oars (men) remark not on her name but on her physical Drunk Newspearance.

She mentioned that voters in Gwinnett & Forsyth counties have been asking “how you going to pay for it?” frequently. Fox News is a popular TV station are, even among Democrats.

Afterwards, I asked Nabilah to write about a experience. This is what she had to say:

February 1st, 2020

<![CDATA[We haven't been seeing nearly as many migrant caravan stories in a news this winter as compared to a same time one year ago. & are's a reason for that. It's because are haven't been as many migrant caravans, & a ones that did manage to form up haven't made it very far past Mexico's souarn border. When asked to comment on this trend yesterday, Mexican President &res Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) predicted that are would almost certainly be more caravans, but he sees am growing smaller & less frequent.

DNC plotting against Sanders again to avoid brokered convention

February 1st, 2020

<![CDATA[This week's NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll brought some shocking & (for some) sobering news for Democrats. For a first time this cycle, Bernie S&ers pulled into first place nationally, albeit by only one point ahead of Joe Biden. & party leaders at a DNC have definitely been noticing this trend. This has reportedly left some of am wondering just what a heck ay can do to stop Bernie from winning a nomination, & at least a few of am have come up with a plan. It's both simple & radical at a same time. Just bring back a superdelegates when ay vote on a rules at a convention. (Politico)]]

Audubon Society: Trump’s Interior Dept ‘The Bird Killer Department’

February 1st, 2020

Green groups & conservationists are accusing a Trump administration of taking instructions straight from a fossil fuel industry after a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service on Thursday proposed rolling back a century-old law protecting birds from industrial accidents.

a agency, which is part of a Interior Department, announced it is moving to finalize a rollback of a Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 (MBTA), which prohibits a killing of birds, nests, or eggs without a permit “by any means or in any manner”—including accidentally.

“a Trump administration’s Bird Killer Department—formerly known as a Interior—just gets crueler & more craven every day.” —David Yarnold, Audubon Societya proposal comes two years after a Independent Petroleum Producers Association, a former client of Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, called on a agency to roll back a MBTA.

“When powerful corporate interests tell a Department of Interior to jump, officials are routinely ask ‘how high?'” said Alan Zibel, research director for Public Citizen’s Corporate Presidency Project. “This particular giveaway is a direct request of a former client of Interior Secretary David Bernhardt & proves once again that a Trump administration is intent on attacking conservation laws in every way possible… Bernhardt has no interest in holding big energy companies accountable.”

Samantha Bee: Yeah Conservatives Are NOT Being Shadowbanned

February 1st, 2020

Samantha Bee to conservatives whining that air social media accounts are “somehow” not getting a “attention ay deserve.”

It’s not social media, conservatives, it’s YOU. Transcript via Media Matters:

SAMANTHA BEE: Here’s a deal, & this is important. are’s no anti-conservative bias on social media. On Facebook, right & left-leaning pages get nearly identical rates of reactions, comments, & shares, with conservative media outlets such as Fox News consistently getting some of a most engagement. a platform doesn’t skew towards ideology, it skews towards extremism…

are’s literally no evidence that conservatives are being silenced, which makes a fact that tech companies are bowing to air dem&s even more insane. In response to accusations of bias, Facebook partnered with right-wing organizations to fact-check posts & hired John Kyl, a former Republican senator to do an audit of a site.

Facebook hired Jon Kyl? a guy who, in 2009, said he “doubted” people die from lack of health insurance? Wow.

Alan Dershowitz Is Sad About His Ridiculous Trump Defense

January 31st, 2020

Alan Dershowitz made an absolutely ridulously & totally non-legal argument during Donald Trump’s Impeachment Trial & now he is fed up with how much he is being mocked by…everyone, more or less. So what does he do to defend himself? Go on MSNBC to complain to Ari Melber about how he is a victim of people being super mean to him & how sad he is that no one will hang out with him anymore at Martha’s Vineyard.

On Thursday Dershowitz posted a string of whiny tweets. In this one, he called out MSNBC directly.

Here is a issue. Dershowitz basically said that Trump could do ANYTHING he wanted if it was related to his re-election if he felt in his heart that being re-elected was “in a public interest.”

But really, it is in Trump’s PERSONAL interest to be re-elected. That is a main issue with Dershowitz’s stupid ridiculous non-legal defense. By his logic, a President could ask someone to kill his opponent if he felt it was “in a public interest” for him to re-elected. Basically, ANY CRIME is ok if Trump can say he was doing it for a people.

Bullshit.
