A Nebraska Democratic Party official is now in hot water. An audio recording was posted on YouTube Thursday with Phil Montag, a technology chairman, voicing how glad he was Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise got shot last week at a baseball practice. Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to FOX 42 News Thursday it was really his voice.

"His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care. I'm glad he got shot," said Montag in the audio recording.

Montag is now looking for a new job. Kleeb let him go after the recording became public.
"I wish he was (expletive) dead," said Montag in the recording.
"We obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it's comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting," said Kleeb when reached by phone Thursday.

FOX 42 News tried several times to reach out to Montag Thursday. We e-mailed, sent text messages and called. We also tried to see him in person, but we could not reach him.

"Our country is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left," said Kleeb.
The audio that was released Thursday comes about one week after a Nebraska state Democratic leader was asked to resign. Chelsey Gentry-Tipton was involved in a controversy over a Facebook post about Congressman Scalise.

Ah yes, the usual "We are sorry". Not sorry it was said, just sorry that people found out.

If you can, avoid being black? It's a very sad state of affairs.

I think you meant, avoid being White. You know, because most people killed every year by police are White. But you wouldn't know that watching CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, HBO, Comedy Central, etc.

>>151522
Of the 963 people shot and killed by police, half were white and a quarter were black. Adjusting for percentage of population, blacks are about 2.5x as likely to be fatally shot by police then whites. It is worth noting that blacks do commit more violent crime, such as murder and assault, which could explain why more force is used during apprehension.

If you want to avoid being killed by police, be asian.

They have to stop you when you have a broken tail-light and fine you, since technically every time you use your car you're supposed to check all the lights and make sure the car is in good running order.

Did anyone even read the rules of the road?

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-bharara-idUSKBN19211S

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara revealed on Sunday that he received a handful of "unusual" phone calls from Donald Trump after the November election that made him feel uncomfortable, and said he was fired after declining to take the third call.

Speaking on ABC News' "This Week" in his first televised interview since Trump fired him in March as the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, Bharara said he believed Trump's calls to him violated the usual boundaries between the executive branch and independent criminal investigators.

"It's a very weird and peculiar thing for a one-on-one conversation without the attorney general, without warning between the president and me or any United States attorney who has been asked to investigate various things and is in a position hypothetically to investigate business interests and associates of the president," Bharara said.

He added that during President Barack Obama's tenure, Obama never called him directly.

Bharara's comments came just a few days after former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey testified at a congressional panel that Trump had asked him to drop an investigation into former Trump aide Michael Flynn and his alleged ties to Russia.

Comey also said he believed he was subsequently fired in an effort to undermine the investigation into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has denied allegations of collusion between his campaign and Russia and said he never directed Comey to drop the Flynn probe.

You sound like you're trying to be a friend but I don't think you understand the plight of people of color at all. People of color need to be rid of white people, especially in the US.

Japan and Sweden are fine because they don't systematically oppress women and minorities, but Venezuela and most places in the south Americas have a richer culture and better cohesion in that sense - plus black and Latin peoples are vibrant and have a common oppression that makes them stronger

Thats some brainwashed ass talk you got there. Colored people are just as racist as white people, but in the end theres not a difference. We all want to be able to support our selves/families with a good job, we all want to live relatively free and be happy. What youre talking about is simple division tactics and you drank way too much koolaid. For the record im not white and dont hate white people for past atrocities. After all, its white people who are trying to give "minorities" every fucking chance to get ahead, but whites are the minorites on a global scale. They should be nationalistic for fear of losing their heritage, which is something all people of color supposedly hold so close. I dont see blacks practicing voodoo or learning about their african roots. Its just fake bullshit. Their culture is theirs, its not white peoples fault they want to talk like retards, be gang bangers, glorify ignorant entertainment and call each other niggas. Its "cool" to be africsn american, but most of the people they look up to as cultural icons just perpetuate the idiocracy. You think they need to get tid of the whites to have a chance? Where would that get them? Does africa choose to invent shit or is it just every other race. Asians are smart and have contributed greatly to historic inventions, arabs have, caucasions have, indians have,fuck even natives were more advanced than some parts of africa today. You stupid liberal fuck, do you just absorb anything your party and their ilk say? Cause it seems like it, especially when tucker carlson is becoming more based and logical as days go by. I find myself agreeing with gavin mcinnes more than msnbc or cnn combined. Im a liberal (or eas a liberal), but you "progressives" are pushing anybody who doesnt believe everything that you shove down peoples throats away. Its like a fucking cult, youre part of a cult.

President Trump acknowledged Thursday that he doesn't have any tapes of conversations with former FBI director James B. Comey, finally coming clean after playing a nearly six-week-long game.

And in the end, it wasn't just another bluff from Trump; it was another bluff that was called and that continued to chip away at Trump's honesty and credibility, for no discernible benefit.

The president last month wielded those potential tapes as a very thinly veiled threat against Comey. And ever since then, Trump and the White House have decided to withhold the truth from the American people, refusing to answer a simple yes-or-no question about whether they had tapes.

This is just the latest in a long line of Trump bluffs. There was the time he was going to force the House to vote on its health-care bill, pass or fail, until he urged that it be delayed in the face of defeat. There was the time during the spending debate when the White House signaled that Trump would allow a shutdown if the bill didn't fund his border wall, only to back down a couple of days later. More examples abound.

But this has been a particularly brazen brand of bluffing from the president of the United States. Trump threatened a former top government official using a falsehood to try to get him to soften his testimony. It's not difficult to attach this to the lengthening list of things suggesting that Trump has tampered in the Russia investigation or even obstructed justice in doing so.

So Trump appears to have not only done something dishonest that undermines his credibility going forward, but it didn't even work. At least the charade is over.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jun/19/noncitizen-illegal-vote-number-higher-than-estimat/

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates.

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.

Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive Harvard/YouGov study that every two years questions a sample size of tens of thousands of voters. Some acknowledge they are noncitizens and are thus ineligible to vote.


Just Facts’ conclusions confront both sides in the illegal voting debate: those who say it happens a lot and those who say the problem nonexistent.

In one camp, there are groundbreaking studies by professors at Old Dominion University in Virginia who attempted to compile scientifically derived illegal voting numbers using the Harvard data, called the Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

The hacking of state and local election databases in 2016 was more extensive than previously reported, including at least one successful attempt to alter voter information, and the theft of thousands of voter records that contain private information like partial Social Security numbers, current and former officials tell TIME.

The fact that private data was stolen from states is separately providing investigators a previously unreported line of inquiry in the probes into Russian attempts to influence the election. In Illinois, more than 90% of the nearly 90,000 records stolen by Russian state actors contained drivers license numbers, and a quarter contained the last four digits of voters’ Social Security numbers, according to Ken Menzel, the General Counsel of the State Board of Elections.

Two women were recently driven out of business for serving burritos while white.

Millennials Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly tasted success for a short while after opening Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon, but after their business was featured in a local paper, the duo was hit with an onslaught of negative media attention filled with accusations of "cultural appropriation" from your standard miserable social justice warriors.

Apparently Wilgus and Connelly infringed on the non-existent copyright on burritos.

The women explained to Willamette Week that they traveled to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, and became obsessed with tortillas, speaking with the local "tortilla ladies" for ingredients and tips.

"I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did," said Connelly. "They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins.”

After creating their own spin on the tortilla via a trial-and-error process, the women decided to engage in the American dream and open their own pop-up shop on the weekends. Kooks Burritos was born, and they thrived.

Enter: social justice warriors.

Getting a whiff of Wilgus and Connelly's process of creating tortilla recipes, leftist outlets like Mic.com and The Portland Mercury pounced: painting the female entrepreneurs contributing to society as racist, sticky-fingered villains.

During a private talk to the Arizona Bankers Association last week, Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) acknowledged that the ongoing circus created President Donald Trump and his administration—in particular, the president’s reckless tweets—is damaging her reelection prospects.

According to Tucson Weekly, which obtained a recording of McSally’s remarks thanks to a source in the room, the second-term congresswoman “complained that President Donald Trump and his tweets were creating troubling ‘distractions’ and ‘it’s basically being taken out on me. Any Republican member of Congress, you are going down with the ship.’”

“The environment has changed and some of it changed on January 20,” McSally continued, according to Tuscon Weekly. “There’s just an element out there that’s just, like, so against the president. Like they just can’t see straight. And all of a sudden on January 20, I’m like his twin sister to them. And I’m, like, responsible for everything he does, and tweets and says. And they want me to be spending my time as a pundit. ‘I disagree with that. I agree with this.’ I have a job in the legislature!”

McSally’s not-meant-for-public-consumption criticism of Trump is notable for how it differs from what Republicans continue to say about the president in public. There are indications, however, that her sentiments are shared by some of her colleagues in private. Publicly, Republican members of Congress mostly defended Trump and ran interference for him during and after the Comey hearing, but privately, Politico reported that a number of them “were absolutely shocked at how poorly yesterday went for the president.”

http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jun/23/senate-announced-probe-loretta-lynch-behavior-2016/

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.

In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”

Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.

Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.

The probe into Ms. Lynch comes as the Judiciary Committee is already looking at President Trump’s firing of Mr. Comey.

Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the committee, said the investigation is bipartisan. The letter to Ms. Lynch is signed by ranking Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and also by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Sheldon Whitehouse, the chairman and ranking member of the key investigative subcommittee.

Letters also went to Clinton campaign staffer Amanda Renteria and Leonard Benardo and Gail Scovell at the Open Society Foundations. Mr. Benardo was reportedly on an email chain from the then-head of the Democratic National Committee suggesting Ms. Lynch had given assurances to Ms. Renteria, the campaign staffer, that the Clinton probe wouldn’t “go too far.”
>>
At a Senate hearing earlier this month, Mr. Comey told lawmakers that Ms. Lynch had attempted to change the way the FBI described its probe of Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server. The change appeared to dovetail with how Mrs. Clinton’s supporters were characterizing the probe.

“At one point, [Ms. Lynch] directed me not to call it an ‘investigation’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Mr. Comey said during his June 8 testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we are to close this case credibly.”

Acknowledging that he didn’t know whether it was intentional, Mr. Comey said Ms. Lynch’s request “gave the impression the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our investigation with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity.”

Mr. Comey said the language suggested by Ms. Lynch was troublesome because it closely mirrored what the Clinton campaign was using. Despite his discomfort, Mr. Comey said, he agreed to Ms. Lynch’s language.

Taylor Muhl, a model and singer from California, often says that she is her own twin, and as strange as that sounds, she means it quite literally. The 33-year-old was diagnosed with genetic Chimerism, an extremely rare condition explained as “an organism composed of cells from different zygotes”.

As a child, Taylor was obsessed with twins, constantly asking her mother if she had a twin sibling, and playing twins with her girlfriends, but little did she know that she actually was her own twin. Doctors say that the model absorbed her fraternal twin while in the womb, and parts of its DNA now exist in her body, making her a Chimera, of which there are only 100 known cases in the whole world. But even as a human Chimera, Taylor’s case is a rare and fascinating one, because while most Chimeras only display the symptoms internally or have very small skin marks, Muhl’s stomach is split down the middle into two skin tones.

Taylor only learned that she might be suffering from Chimerism in 2009, after watching a TV documentary on the incredibly rare condition. Up to that point, she had thought that the darker side of her stomach was just a large birthmark, but that all changed when she saw a baby with a very similar symptom that had been diagnosed with Chimerism.

“I fell out of my chair,” Muhl said. “There was a baby who had the same line as I did,” Taylor told Daily Mail. A week later, she visited a throat doctor who had happened to work on Ripley’s Believe It or Not cases, and she mentioned her suspicion. Following a series of tests, she was officially diagnosed with Chimerism, which helped explain the many allergies and immune flare-ups she had experienced throughout her life.

A sniper with Canada's elite special forces in Iraq has shattered the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot in military history at a staggering distance of 3,540 metres.

The Canadian Armed Forces confirmed Thursday that a member of Joint Task Force 2 made the record-breaking shot, killing an Islamic State insurgent during an operation in Iraq within the last month.

"The Canadian Special Operations Command can confirm that a member of Joint Task Force 2 successfully hit a target at 3,540 metres," the forces said in a statement. "For operational security reasons and to preserve the safety of our personnel and our Coalition partners we will not discuss precise details on when and how this incident took place."

The elite sniper was using a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle while firing from a high-rise during an operation that took place within the last month in Iraq. It took under 10 seconds to hit the target.

"The shot in question actually disrupted a Daesh [Islamic State] attack on Iraqi security forces," said a military source. "Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far way, the bad guys didn't have a clue what was happening."

The military source said the JTF2 operation fell within the strictures of the government's advise and assist mission.

"As stated multiple times in the past, members of the Canadian Special Operations Task Force do not accompany leading combat elements, but enable the Iraqi security forces who are in a tough combat mission," the statement said. "This takes the form of advice in planning their operations and assistance to defeat Daesh through the use of coalition resources."

The kill was independently verified by video camera and other data, The Globe and Mail has learned.

The best part is their counting the kill up as a form of "advice" in their "advise and assist" role.

Well this is a good alternative for more surgical approaches. A drone is great for vehicles and crowds of hostiles but a trained sniper is better for a single target among civilians

In addition to this, drones need a (relatively) secure air space to operate, whereas a sniper team does not. If there is too much in the way of anti-aircraft assets in the area, the risk could be considered too high, even for an unmanned vehicle.

Interesting, I hadn't considered those aspects, especially the airspace concerns. Thanks!
