    Larissa LaMay, a lesbian Michigan State Police sergeant, has sued the department alleging that officials discriminated against her because she’s white. Her proof is that a Black fellow officer got a promotion that she wanted. Her lawyer says the force – which is 90% white and 91% male – is “drunk on diversity.” LaMay also alleges that her supervisor was openly homophobic. In a federal lawsuit, she claims that a Black woman who had been “disciplined for failing to show up for work” get the promotion when she didn’t deserve it. Three similar lawsuits have been filed by other officers....

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The two people arrested Wednesday while protesting at Memphis Police Department’s Ridgeway Station said police were out of line for arresting them. The cameras were rolling when activists lined up outside protesting U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s visit. FOX13 spoke exclusively with the woman arrested. She accused Memphis Police of using excessive force. Quevonna Davis who goes by the name Bluu got out of Jail East around 11:30 Wednesday night.

    BOTHELL, Wash.—An unidentified woman who is seen on video struggling with an officer was arrested in a grocery store for criminal trespassing, not violating the statewide mask mandate, Bothell police said in response to a viral video which has drawn strong reactions on social media. But the man who recorded and published the video claims the woman’s arrest was political and heavy-handed, because the woman claimed to have a medical exemption to the state mask mandate. The video shows a woman--who had been participating in a rally protesting lockdown restrictions like the mask mandate--resisting being handcuffed while being arrested (snip)...

    Cruise Hive ^ | Oct. 22, 2020 | Robert McGillivray
    What will happen in the U.S. once cruising resumes? There is no denying that the pandemic is hitting the United States hard. With the largest number of cases and deaths worldwide, the country struggles to keep the virus under control. Once cruising does finally resume, the cruise lines will need to implement and enforce rules and regulations that go much further than the protocols that are implemented ashore. Those people that would typically refuse to wear a mask or practice social distancing will be forced to do so on board. As is the case in Europe, cruise lines sailing to...

  • The Nine Most Memorable Debate Moments - Bernie Shaw's Question on Capital Punishment (akin to Biden's 'transition from the oil industry' response?)

    Real Clear Politics ^ | November 11, 2015 | N/A
    In the second presidential debate between George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis, moderator Bernie Shaw asked Dukakis a question on violent crime: “Governor, if Kitty Dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer?” Although the question was awkwardly phrased, and jarring in its tastelessness, Dukakis shouldn’t have been surprised by the subject. Crime was a big issue in 1988 and Dukakis’ opposition to capital punishment was at odds with public opinion. His staff had briefed him on this, but apparently too much.

  • CHAMBERLAIN: Regulate Big Tech To Protect Conservative Speech

    Daily Caller ^ | Oct 23 | Will Chamberlain
    It’s rare that a debate in the world of conservative politics moves as quickly as the debate over Big Tech. Last year, when I proposed that we should understand social media platform access as a civil right, I received immense pushback from conservatives who were inclined to think we should let Facebook and Twitter do what they want, as private companies. Those voices have gotten much quieter. That’s because of two basic phenomena. HOW THEY CENSOR First, Twitter and Facebook suppress popular conservative influencers and activists, preventing them from plying their trade. There are too many examples of this to...

    A young couple who once dined at the Big Apple’s iconic Balthazar couldn’t bottle up their emotions after ordering an $18 Pinot Noir — but being served a $2,000 Mouton Rothschild instead by accident, the eatery’s owner recounted this week. ...the restaurant’s night manager said the host of the business meeting actually praised the purity of the cheapest wine on the list, while the lucky couple “jokingly pretended to be drinking an expensive wine,” “The young couple were ecstatic by the restaurant’s mistake, and told me it was like the bank making an error in their favor,” said the red-faced...

    Conspiracy universe has been triggered by Biden using the phrase: Dark Winter several times in a row. It almost didn't sound like an innocent observation. Overview The Dark Winter exercise, held at Andrews AFB, Washington, DC, June 22-23, 2001, portrayed a fictional scenario depicting a covert smallpox attack on US citizens. The scenario is set in 3 successive National Security Council (NSC) meetings (Segments 1, 2 and 3) that take place over a period of 14 days. Former senior government officials played the roles of NSC members responding to the evolving epidemic; representatives from the media were among the observers...

    An Arctic outbreak even more extreme than one felt in early September is expected to race southeastward from the northern Rockies Friday night to the southern Plains by next Monday that could deliver temperature departures from average of 30-40 degrees Fahrenheit. The air is forecast to be so cold at its peak as to bring nighttime low temperatures to within a few degrees of zero in parts of Idaho, much of Montana and Wyoming, as well as the western parts of the Dakotas and northern Colorado. For example, "in Billings, Montana, the temperature is forecast to shatter the current record...

    So Biden is CAUGHT RED HANDED by this former business partner and Hunters laptop. Unlike Hillery whose emails were in the custody of US intel, Russia and China BUT were never fully seen by the US public, Biden's stuff is out there. By burying it, it will simmer and grow and have a greater impact than their usual approach of reporting it once and then ignoring it. You might think that this is why the deep state loves Biden and hates Trump, they have nothing on Trump and he can not be controlled. So if Biden wins, the deep state...

    he defined Biden as a typical politician who is all talk and no action. And he seized on Biden's unforced error toward the end of the debate, when the former vice president admitted that he wants to "transition" from an economy fueled by oil and gas. Trump didn't launch into the personal attacks against the younger Biden that soured the last debate. Rather, Trump said the story was evidence of the Biden family's swampiness, and further confirmation of Biden's status in the political establishment. Trump began to define Biden as a career official whose lifetime in professional politics resulted in...
