Look who is running for Governor of Nevada, old droopy face himself, and boy is his campaign website weird:
https://www.oregonlive.com/oregon-standoff/2018/09/ryan_bundy_disavows_eye_for_an.html

The website for Ryan Bundy's campaign for Nevada governor generated a Twitter storm Tuesday for advocating "eye-for-an-eye" punishments for heinous crimes, saying "if you rape 3 people, you will be raped 3 times as forced by the Nevada Government."

Bundy, running as an independent for states' rights against federal control of public lands, quickly disavowed the explosive position and said he didn't write it and didn't know about it before it posted.

"Those are not my words,'' Bundy told The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Bundy's website developer was the author and didn't run the passage by him, both confirmed. The developer said he put up the treatise in anticipation of President Trump's visit to Las Vegas on Thursday for a "Make America Great Again'' rally in advance of the November midterm elections.

In the latest installment of Project Veritas’ undercover video series into the “Deep State,” a U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) employee purportedly admits to breaking agency rules and being a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Project Veritas identifies its latest subject as Natarajan Subramanian, a GAO administrator and “self-proclaimed Communist,” appearing to tell an undercover journalist that federal employees may calculatingly subvert President Donald Trump’s agenda by simply accomplishing tasks at a slower pace.

“If you’re in [an] executive branch agency you can slow ball things to a degree, that it’s like ineffective, and maybe you get in trouble, or maybe you get fired or resign or whatever, but you slowed [Trump’s agenda] down for a certain period of time,” Subramanian says.

In another exchange, Subramanian purportedly says he is not only a card-carrying member of the Metro DC DSA but also works secretly to expand the group’s online presence — while on the job as a federal employee.

After complaints from city residents, the Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club has notified the City Council that it will not rent space again to the Sons of Confederate Veterans for its annual banquet.

The country club’s executive committee said in a letter to the city manager that the club had decided earlier not to book the group again because of objections raised last year. But new management didn't know that, according to the letter, and the club hosted this year's banquet Sept. 8.

"Faced with a specific request to use our ballroom last year by a so-called 'southern heritage' organization," wrote club general manager Jim Musick, "the negative implications toward the club ... caused the board to review the situation and it ultimately voted to not permit that and similar organizations to utilize our ballroom for such events."

This policy has not changed, but a new management team "inadvertently" accepted the event in an effort to keep the club fully booked, Musick said.

The leader of the Confederate group, David R. McCallister, said he would consult a lawyer and consider legal action, "especially if our civil rights are being denied."

McCallister, commander of the Judah P. Benjamin Camp #2210 Sons of Confederate Veterans, objected to the description of his group as a "so-called Southern heritage’’ organization, saying, "We’re a legitimate, genuine Southern heritage corporation and a legitimate, genuine American heritage corporation … I don’t know what negative implications he’s talking about.’’

The group has held banquets at the country club during the past five years, he said, but announced a new location at the 11th hour last year in the midst of a debate over moving a Confederate memorial in Tampa.

While I would normally agree with you about private company rights to deny service, the city seems to pretty much own the club due to the massive loan which the city took over payments on. I'm not really sure where this stands on the public v private debate, but it would be interesting to see the courts ruling should it go that far.

Also why are you trying so hard to bait partisan outrage? The article is literally about people who discuss lynchings while wearing hangman's noose lapels at get formal togethers. Surely you could find something there which is a bit more relevant to use as bait. I guess it worked though, given everyone else's comments

>>291700
The city has a massive stake in the country club, so it makes things a bit more interesting as the right to assemble may be invoked. That said, they are likely going to lose any court case. If only the rest of the thread were about this and not the asshattery that it has become we might actually see some interesting discourse over how much of a company needs to be owned by the government before it becomes public.

The Department of Health and Human Services is diverting millions of dollars in funding from a number of programs, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health, to pay for housing for the growing population of detained immigrant children.

In a letter sent to Sen. Patty Murray, D.-Wash., and obtained by Yahoo News, HHS Secretary Alex Azar outlined his plan to reallocate up to $266 million in funding for the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30, to the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

Nearly $80 million of that money will come from other refugee support programs within ORR, which have seen their needs significantly diminished as the Trump administration makes drastic cuts to the annual refugee numbers. The rest is being taken from other programs, including $16.7 million from Head Start, $5.7 million from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program and $13.3 million from the National Cancer Institute. Money is also being diverted from programs dedicated to mental and maternal health, women’s shelters and substance abuse.

According to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement obtained by Yahoo News, there were 13,312 immigrant children in federal custody as of Wednesday, Sept. 19, with ORR’s existing facilities at 92 percent capacity.

The latest figures demonstrate the continued growth of this population just one week after the New York Times reported that the number of detained immigrant children in the U.S. has soared to record highs over the last year, from 2,400 children in May of 2017 to 12,800 earlier this month.

>DONALD TRUMP SAYS ‘YOU CAN UNDERSTAND’ CIVIL WAR AND IT WASN’T AS BAD AS GEORGE W. BUSH INVADING MIDDLE EAST

https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-civil-war-bush-middle-east-1129522

President Donald Trump called former commander-in-chief George W. Bush’s decision to invade Afghanistan and Iraq in the early 2000s the “worst single mistake” in the country’s history, adding that the decision was worse than the Civil War that tore the country apart over slavery.

Trump bashed Bush’s still-controversial decision to send troops to Iraq and Afghanistan in the years following the 9/11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. He also stated President Barack Obama might have improperly pulled the military out of the region, but that Bush’s decision was far worse.

“The worst single mistake ever made in the history of our country: going into the Middle East, by President Bush,” Trump told The Hill in an interview Tuesday that was released Wednesday. “Obama may have gotten [U.S. soldiers] out wrong, but going in is to me the biggest single mistake made in the history of our country.”

Trump specifically noted the monetary and human life cost as the reason to blast Bush.

“Because we spent $7 trillion in the Middle East. Now if you wanna fix a window someplace they say, 'oh gee, let’s not do it. Seven trillion, and millions of lives—you know, cause I like to count both sides. Millions of lives," Trump said.

He added that a case could be made for the Civil War as the worst mistake in the country’s history, but still ranked Bush’s invasion higher.

A dead baby minke whale, too big for a transport container, flopped onto the concrete in a parking lot in Rye, New Hampshire, and the 4,000-pound mistake was all caught on camera.


The whale washed ashore on Jenness Beach Monday morning. Experts say it likely died after getting tangled in fishing lines and crews added insult to injury when they tried to move it.

"That was a mistake that shouldn't have happened and I take full responsibility for that," Rye Police Chief Kevin Walsh said.

Walsh says it was a coordinated effort to remove the dead animal from the public beach. The town called on the state to bring in the dumpster to help transport the whale for a necropsy.

"Our goal was removing the biohazard right away," Walsh said.

He says the problem was simple miscommunication.

"We said, 'baby whale,' so everyone thought it was a small whale," Walsh explained. "We should have measured the length of the animal so it was clear what size container we would need."

illings West High School senior Tyler Linfesty learned Thursday morning during first period that he had been selected for VIP treatment at President Donald J. Trump's rally at MetraPark.

Linfesty had applied for tickets to the rally earlier in the week. After earning VIP treatment, he went to tell his friends.

Fellow seniors Erik Hovland and Christian Dunlap were walking to class when Linfesty "approached us in the hallway looking pretty frantic, talking about how he gets the opportunity to get a picture with the president," Hovland said.

Linfesty reached out to the Trump campaign and told them he was planning on bringing friends. He said they told him they would save three seats for them.

Not long after Trump took the podium Thursday night at MetraPark, social media cued into Linfesty's puzzled facial expressions, visible just over Trump's right shoulder.

All three West seniors were ultimately asked to vacate their seats midway through the event by people they believe are Trump campaign staffers. By the end of the rally, the 17-year-olds achieved viral fame on social media.

I didn't really have a plan," Linfesty said. "I was just going to clap for things I agreed with and not clap for things I didn't agree with."

>Trump's longtime fixer Michael Cohen has reportedly talked to Mueller's team for 'hours' recently, spilling years of secrets about Trump's financial and business dealings with Russia.

Trump’s longtime lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen has spoken to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team repeatedly over the past month, answering questions about “all aspects of Trump’s dealings with Russia,” according to a new ABC News report.

The interview sessions lasted for “hours” and covered a wide range of topics related to the Russia probe and the investigation into possible obstruction of justice.

The report said Mueller’s team was focused mostly on asking questions about Trump’s business and financial dealings with Russia, as well as any potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Investigators also asked about whether Trump or Trump’s associates discussed the possibility of issuing a pardon to Cohen, ABC reported, citing sources familiar with the matter.

It has previously been reported that Mueller is looking at the issue of pardons as part of a wide ranging probe into potential obstruction of justice.

Cohen reportedly participated in the interviews voluntarily, without a guarantee of leniency from prosecutors.

The New York Times corroborated ABC’s reporting a short time after publication on Thursday, confirming that Cohen has been interviewed multiple times by Mueller’s team.

Cohen pleaded guilty last month to eight criminal counts, and in the process of doing so, implicated Trump in campaign finance violations stemming from the hush money payments made to two women who say they had affairs with Trump.

Thursday’s ABC News report comes after weeks of speculation recently that Cohen was poised to flip on Trump to save himself from potentially spending years in prison for crimes he allegedly committed on behalf of Trump.

Last week, Vanity Fair’s Emily Jane Fox reported that it had become “common knowledge” among Cohen’s inner circle that he was talking to Mueller in the hopes of striking a cooperation agreement. His cooperation with Mueller’s team was reportedly motivated in part by Trump’s poor treatment of him after years of being Trump’s loyal “fixer.”

The ABC news report confirms the speculation and provides important new details about these talks, indicating that Mueller’s team is interested in Trump and not just those around him. The focus of the questioning also suggests that investigators may be zeroing in on Trump’s finances, which is very bad news for the man who still refuses to even release his tax returns.

It’s not clear yet if Cohen provided Mueller’s team with any information that would put Trump in legal jeopardy, but as the keeper of Trump’s secrets and the fixer of his problems, Cohen may know more about Trump’s financial and business history than Trump himself.

And for that reason alone, the news that Cohen is talking to federal investigators — for hours, on repeated occasions — is the last thing Trump wants to hear.

-------------

Before right wing damage control teams come in, this isn't about the Trump Tower meeting where the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians, but all of Trump's financial interactions and probably criminal dealings he's had with the Russians. Meaning it gives motive to Trump's actions and why he's bending over for them at every turn.

Hosts are considered the modern version of geishas in Japan. They are charming women who engage in a carefully choreographed performance designed to make clients feel like the most important person on Earth. But in certain clubs around Tokyo’s Kabuchiko district, the tables have turned; here it’s male hosts who cater to the needs of female clients, and there’s no one better at it than Roland, the so-called emperor of Japan’s male host industry.

Like their female counterparts, male hosts work in specialized host clubs in Tokyo’s red lights district and have a very specific goal – to entertain their clients and encourage them to spend as much as possible on drinks. That’s how they earn a living and it’s also how they are ranked. Some clubs actually have posters of their male hosts displayed outside based on how much they managed to convince clients to pay the previous month. This usually involves a lot of drinking on their part as well, but Roland, the 25-year-old head manager of the Platina club and the hottest male host in the business, is a rare exception. He gets clients to spend huge amount of money without having to get drunk himself.

Roland got into the male host business when he was 18-years-old. He had enrolled in a prestigious Tokyo university, but dropped out after just one week. He just didn’t see himself working in a corporation for a 200,000 yen salary until he finally retired. He wanted something more, so he just quit school and became a male geisha. Having played football for most of his life, he had the athletic body required to be a successful host, but like all beginners, he had to start off small, at a little host club in Kabuchiko.

Roland claims he had kind of a rough start, finding it hard to get clients to spend any money during his first year at Zebra club.

Police are bringing manslaughter charges against a Tampa man accused of throwing a fatal punch last April at well-known local muralist Matt Callahan.

The suspect, 34-year-old Keith Mauga of Tampa, already is serving five years for aggravated battery in an attack on a St. Petersburg man. He was scheduled to be arrested in prison on the manslaughter charge.

Police found Callahan in a median on Gandy Boulevard about 3 a.m. April 11, suffering from a head injury. Callahan died two days later at Tampa General Hospital.

Callahan was 40 and left a wife and 5-year-old son. His murals appear on walls throughout the Tampa Bay area, at locations including the Lure restaurants in Tampa and St. Petersburg.

"The evidence against Mr. Mauga is compelling," Callahan’s father Michael Callahan, a St. Petersburg lawyer, told the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday. "I am extremely relieved that charges have finally been brought."

New details about the night of the fatal encounter emerged in an affidavit filed with the manslaughter charge.

Witnesses said Callahan and Mauga approached one another then walked away a number of times at the Warehouse Lounge on Gandy Boulevard, two blocks west of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway entrance.

It started when Callahan walked up to Mauga inside the bar and tried to apologize for an incident that occurred a few weeks before, according to the affidavit. Callahan’s father has told the Times that tension between the two men stemmed from an earlier pool game.

Yesterday, the President personally distributed warm meals to families devastated by Hurricane Florance, many of which were flood victims. The meals consisted of hot dogs, chips, and fruit.

>So you're just proving you can't defend Trump and his stupidity so your best counter argument is 'who cares?'
You literally wrote a post saying he was "tone-deaf." I'm not going to defend that. I don't have to. The fact that you think that people should care about his being "tone-deaf" is phenomenal.

>I can see why you'd probably be one of the idiots who tried to defend his Nazis are fine people meltdown.
Yes. You figured it out. I don't care about petty retarded shit because I am a Nazi. Sig Heil.

I'm glad he served food.
It's a nice act. Are people really mad about this or are they just obsessed?

Figuratively, you're an idiot, If you're tone-deaf, the answer is to figure out how you're tone deaf and correct it. It's clear Trump is to much of a malignant narcissist to do that so of course people are going to keep shitting on him when he inevitably proves he has zero empathy.
You're response is 'It can't be helped' and it's a perfect example of why the Right wing are a threat to the country and democracy.

Hard to say, he left all those people to die and 3000 of them did.
