    As a libertarian, I think it’s reprehensible that liberals are against medical marijuana, and also reprehensible that they tried to raise the price of wheat at a time when millions of Americans were hungry. I hope Amy Coney Barrett will help overturn these rulings. In the 2005 U.S. Supreme Court case Gonzales v. Raich, the court ruled that a person who grew and smoked their own medical marijuana was engaging in interstate commerce, even thought the marijuana never crossed state lines, and no money changed hands.Voting for the majority were Stevens, Kennedy, Souter, Ginsburg, Breyer, and Scalia.The dissenters were O’Connor, Rehnquist,...

    KEENE — New Hampshire’s first trans, anarchist, Satanic candidate for county sheriff says she’s not getting a lot of support from the Republican Party. “I can’t imagine they’re happy about this,” said Aria DiMezzo. DiMezzo, who is running as a Republican with the campaign slogan “F*** the Police,” said Friday she hasn’t had any help or support for the county or state GOP. DiMezzo won the Republican nomination for Cheshire County Sheriff Tuesday night running unopposed in the primary. She’ll now square off with popular incumbent Democrat Eli Rivera, who is running for his fifth term. Marylin Huston, Cheshire County...

    President Donald Trump hosted a campaign rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the same night the Democratic National Convention was scheduled to kick off in Milwaukee. While Democrats instead opted for a virtual conference to avoid spreading the coronavirus, Trump drew a crowd of at least 1,000 people. In off-the-cuff remarks, Trump suggested to Republicans that if they wanted to win elections, they had to keep cannabis legalization off the ballot. Though the Trump Administration has attacked cannabis reform in behind-closed-doors proceedings and by blocking legislative action, this is the first time the President has made negative comments about cannabis in public....

    The drones are loaded with C4, an explosive reserved for military use, with additional ammunition of pellets to cause further damage. Part of the population of Tepalcatepec and even the self-defence groups have begun to move as they fear that it is not possible to tackle this new form of attack. One dangerous scam involves forcing pharmacies to buy bogus medicines, which in turn end up in the bloodstreams of genuinely sick people needing treatment. While another is to steal petrol out of buried pipelines leading to fuel shortages and dangerous explosions. Last year was the worst year in the...

    Federal agents on the U.S.-Mexico border discovered what they described as the "most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history" dug deep below the dunes near Yuma, Arizona, and into Mexico. Several weeks ago, federal agents working in the Sonoran Desert on the American side of the international border discovered a sinkhole between the primary border wall and the secondary wall. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations brought in to inspect the sinkhole said it was in line with an existing investigation into a cross-border tunnel. On July 27, Yuma Border Patrol agents were brought in and drilled at the site....

    Libertarian Party presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen praised a company for firing an employee who had posted “all lives matter” on her private Facebook page as an example of the free market standing up against “systemic racism.” Yes, really. During a C-SPAN interview, Jorgensen argued that Rosa Parks was discriminated against because, “what a lot of people don’t realize is that that was a government-owned, government-run bus, and the only way that racism was able to go on for so long was the government was putting it into place.” She then claimed that it’s harder for private companies to engage in...

A Florida woman was arrested on Thursday for allegedly attacking her father and trying to grab his genitals after he refused to let her smoke his medical marijuana, The Smoking Gun reports.

They came to blows at his trailer park home in the town of Sebastian, just north of Vero Beach, cops alleged. “Dakota attacked...

    POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) –Three young men were “massacred” during a fishing trip in Frostproof Friday night in what Sheriff Grady Judd called one of the worst murder scenes he’s ever witnessed. Judd said Frostproof residents Brandon Rollins, 27, Keven Springfield, 30, and Damion Tillman, 23, were to meet at Lake Streety off US Hwy 27 Friday evening for some ‘night fishing.’ “It’s about as far out in the middle of the woods as you can get,” Judd said. “It’s a peaceful area. There’s a beautiful lake where three very close friends were going fishing last night.” Judd said Damion...

    Three best friends were found slain in a “horrific scene” at a Florida lake after one of them called his father for help, authorities said. Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27, had planned to go night fishing Friday at Lake Streety in Frostproof, about 70 miles south of Orlando, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Grady Judd said they believe Tillman arrived first at the lake to go out on a catfish expedition. When Rollins and Springfield arrived, they saw Tillman being beaten and were shot by one or more of his attackers, authorities...

    Michigan Rep. Justin Amash (L) confirmed Thursday evening that he was not seeking reelection to Congress, in an apparent end to his 2020 political aspirations. Amash retweeted an article from The Detroit News that quoted an aide to the congressman as saying his reelection campaign had "idled" in February, and that Amash did not intend to seek the Libertarian Party's nomination for the district after abandoning the Republican Party last year. "He hasn't been campaigning for any office and doesn't plan to seek the nomination for any office," an adviser told the publication. "I love representing our community in Congress....

    Of course we’re talking about the St. Louis couple who brandished firearms at “peaceful protesters” who knocked down a gate and marched through their private property. Plenty of lefties can’t believe that they haven’t been arrested yet for pointing guns at people, but as The Federalist reports, left-wing think tank president Jerry Taylor wouldn’t have waited for the police. In a now-deleted tweet, he says he would have rushed the couple, beaten their brains in, and not apologized either.

Electric cars are sold with lifetime guarantees and are repaired only by dealers. It takes only 10 minutes to remove and replace an electric motor. 3- Faulty electric motors are not repaired in the dealership but are sent to a regional repair shop that repairs them with robots 4- Your electric motor malfunction light goes on, so you drive up to what looks like a car wash, and your car is towed through...

    Joe Rogan has one of the most popular podcasts in the world. This week, he tested the limits of that popularity by saying white people are the ones doing the most of the rioting and looting in recent weeks. Rogan is known for his enthusiastic consumption of marijuana, sometimes with a guest on the air. http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/joe-rogan-gets-high-on-his-fantasy-of-white-crime-a-new-podcast-from-colin-flaherty/ Which makes sense because no one could reach that level of Denial=, Deceit and Delusion without some significant chemical or herbal interventions! He’s hardly alone.

[Snip] Fried is the only statewide elected Democrat in Florida and viewed as a possible 2022 candidate for governor or U.S. Senate.
