    He was perhaps too buzzed on Thanksgiving. A Florida business owner has been busted after his girlfriend accused him of drunkenly battering her with her sex toy. Christopher Pacitto, the 45-year-old CEO and owner of Velocity Engineering Services, was arrested after a 4:30 a.m. bust-up with his girlfriend at a St. Petersburg motel on Thanksgiving Day, an arrest affidavit shows. During an argument, the 6-foot-2, 300-pound business owner started packing his bags — then throwing all of his girlfriend’s items out onto the floor, the complaint says. “During that process” he “hit her with a sex toy on her torso,...
  • Woke mob vandalizes statue of Abraham Lincoln with red paint and daubs 'COLONIZER' and 'LAND BACK' during Thanksgiving day attack in Chicago

    A statue of young Abraham Lincoln has been splashed with red paint with the words 'COLONIZER' and 'LAND BACK' written below it in Chicago. The statue, which has stood in the Edgewater neighborhood since it was donated to Senn Park in 1997, also had the words 'Dakota 38' written on it. Dakota 38 refers to Lincoln's ordered execution of 38 Sioux, who were publicly hanged for participating in the Sioux Uprising in the US-Dakota War of 1862 in Minnesota.
  • Bette Midler Trashes Thanksgiving: Pilgrims Were ‘Undocumented Aliens from Europe’

    Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 star Bette Midler spent her Thanksgiving trashing the national holiday, posting a meme that denigrated the pilgrims as “undocumented aliens from Europe.” In a tweet on Thursday, Bette Midler posted a meme showing a pilgrim and an Indian sharing a turkey in what appears to be a depiction of the first Thanksgiving in 1621. The meme’s snarky caption reads: “Celebrating the day Americans fed undocumented aliens from Europe.” Midler’s meme inaccurately depicts what actually transpired between the Plymouth colony pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians at the first Thanksgiving feast. Historical accounts show that both the pilgrims...

    President Biden and first lady Jill Biden spoke with members of the U.S. Armed Forces on Thursday afternoon, thanking them for their service on the Thanksgiving holiday. “You gave up your seat at the Thanksgiving table to defend us – and we owe you a debt of gratitude,” Biden said in a tweet. “You’re the best of America.” The Bidens mentioned their plans to chat with service members earlier in the day, when they called into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    From deep funk cuts to snazzy jazz numbers, the best Thanksgiving songs focus on food and gratitude for the holidays.There are countless Christmas songs, even Halloween songs, but what about Thanksgiving? For a holiday that essentially revolves around gathering friends and family and feasting on delicious food, why aren’t there scores of songs to match? For what is essentially an indulgent dinner party in the middle of the afternoon, you’re going to need a playlist for entertaining and selective hearing when your relatives try to bring up politics. From deep funk cuts to snazzy jazz numbers, the best Thanksgiving songs...

    President Biden thanked first responders with an awkward phone call into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday that provided some cringeworthy TV for viewers of the annual parade. From the Massachusetts island home of private-equity billionaire David Rubenstein, the president and first lady Jill Biden engaged in a call that started with a lengthy and uncomfortable silence as NBC’s Dylan Dryer, on scene at the parade, seemed unable to hear the pair for about 30 seconds. “I’m not one to take a phone call during TV, but I think I should answer this one,” Dreyer said.

    Thursday, if you eat a nice meal, thank the Pilgrims. They made Thanksgiving possible. They left the Old World to escape religious persecution. They imagined a new society where everyone worked together and shared everything. In other words, they dreamed of socialism. Socialism then almost killed them. As I explain in my weekly video, the Pilgrims attempted collective farming. The whole community decided when and how much to plant, when to harvest and who would do the work.Gov. William Bradford wrote in his diary that he thought that taking away property and bringing it into a commonwealth would make the...

    gateway pundit ^ | 11/24/2022 | Cullen Linebarger
    Millions of Americans today will gather around the kitchen table to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families. For Joy Reid, though, this is just another day to bash our beloved nation. Reid opened her show last night by acknowledging Thanksgiving is a day of “cherished traditions” for millions of Americans who also enjoy “turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.” But then she said this: “But it is also to unpack the myth of Thanksgiving. It is a holiday riddled with historical inaccuracies. It is built on this myth that the indigenous welcomed their colonizers with open arms and ears of...
  • 5 Facts to Know: Norman Rockwell's Thanksgiving

    11/24/2022 3:32:50 PM PST · by bitt · 36 replies ^ | November 22, 2022 | Kira Reinke
    In honor of the holiday, we look back on the most iconic image of Thanksgiving: Norman Rockwell's 'Freedom of Want,' painted amidst World War II. "Our cook cooked it, I painted it and we ate it. That was one of the few times I've ever eaten the model." As one of the leading American artists of the 20th century, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) captured America life in his paintings and illustrations, both the nostalgic view of the American dream and the challenges of the interwar and postwar periods. One of his best known works, Freedom from Want (also known as Thanksgiving),...

It has no social redeeming value.”

    President Joe Biden unleashed his disgust for semi-automatic weapons on Thanksgiving, vowing to ban them in the United States. “The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. Just sick,” he said. “It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero.” The president commented to reporters during his visit to a fire station on Nantucket Island during his Thanksgiving vacation. He brought pies to firefighters for their Thanksgiving celebration.

According to the survey, the plans of 34 percent of Americans have been affected by price increases. This includes a plurality of Republicans (43 percent), one-third of Democrats (33 percent), and over a quarter of independents (27 percent) who said the same.
  • Inflation won't win Thanksgiving: Here's NPR's plan to help you save on a meal (woke unintentional self-mockery)

    There is an annoying guest at Thanksgiving dinner this year: inflation. The turkey, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce — everything has gotten a lot more expensive. The Farm Bureau puts the total cost of the traditional ingredients at more than $80, an increase of about 40% over 2020.But inflation doesn't have to win Thanksgiving. Some of NPR's most intrepid business reporters set out on a mission to prove it, by taking on classic Thanksgiving dishes and finding substitutions that cost what those dishes cost in 2020.

  • Bad Sign! What Interest Rates Are Telling Us (US 10Y-2Y Curve Inverts To -80 Basis Points, Euro 10Y Yields Falling, Fed Funds Rate Priced At 2.301% By January 2024)

    What interest rates are telling us is a bad sign. With an impending railroad strike that can torpedo the US economy (but if that is possible, why is the Biden Clan vacationing in Nantucket for Thanksgiving weekend when Joe should be talking with railroads and the unions to not let this happen?), let’s see what interest rates are telling us. First, the US Treasury 10Y-2Y yield curve continues to descrend into the abyss (now at -80 basis points). Second, the latest Fed Dot Plot (from September, new one will be issued during December) show that The Fed thinks that their...

    Remember "funemployment?" That was a concept introduced during the Obama administration during 2009 to make people feel better about rampant unemployment by portraying it as a fun thing.Well, flash forward to the inflationary era of 2022 during the Biden administration and National Public Radio has come up with something similar. Not the "Whip Inflation Now" (WIN) of the 1970s but more of an upbeat version that makes inflation sounds like a creative challenge or Winflation. And as part of the Winflation challenge, NPR has come up with what they think are creative ideas for whipping inflation during Thanksgiving dinner. Picture...
