President Donald Trump this week traveled to the Carolinas to offer support and work with state and local officials to assist with clean up procedures.
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.

Yes, congratulations. The Republicans are cracking down on the terrifying menace to society that is ... Juan the Fruit Picker.

Thank Trump that ICE is here to save us all from the blood-curdling horror caused by the sheer Satanic evil that is picking oranges. And putting them into baskets. Now tiny, tiny babies can sleep easily at night, safe in their mothers' arms.

Unless, of course, they are undocumented.
If you want to support orchards and slave labor, that is fine. You don't need to go on massive diatribes to try and deflect from this.

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."

Why not just tow it back out to sea and let it sink?
It's too heavy for waves to pull it away, so it rots there and stinks up the place for weeks on end. Due to the decomposition, gases accumulate inside the corpse and eventually make it half-float, which worsens the smell and the decomposition rate. At that point strong tides may move it, but that's hardly far enough.
Cohorts of opportunistic animals come to feast on the carcass and the seawater around it turns into a primordial soup filled with nasty bacteria.
And finally, if too much gas accumulates before animals dig enough holes in the corpse, it fucking explodes and spreads rotting guts everywhere.
Basically leaving a beached cetacean alone is a bad month for hygiene.
More often than people would think. Here in Canada we sometimes still blow them up.
Because trying to load it into a dumpster that it clearly won't fit into leads to funnier results.
how many dead whales have you studies?

Trump has ignored pleas from Virginia’s Democratic governor and its congressional delegation and, to date, has refused to declare a state of emergency for the Democratic-leaning state as Hurricane Florence, a monster storm, takes aim at the mid-Atlantic coast.

Late on Monday night, Trump declared state of emergencies for Republican-friendly North Carolina and South Carolina, even though hurricane forecasts clearly indicate Virginia could suffer catastrophic damage from the historic, Category 4 or 5 hurricane:

Millions of people have already been evacuated in advance of the storm. The mid-Atlantic states are bracing for the first Category 4 or 5 hurricane to make landfall there in nearly two decades.

Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam told NPR on Tuesday morning that he had spoken to Trump on Monday and “encouraged” him to declare a state of emergency for the Commonwealth.

Northam had already declared a local state of emergency over the weekend.

Also, on Monday Virginia’s entire Congressional delegation took the unusual step of writing to Trump and asking for help.

“A federal emergency declaration would ensure the full availability of federal resources to support the Commonwealth’s efforts to guarantee public safety and rapid recovery from the direct and indirect effects of Hurricane Florence,” the congressional lawmakers wrote. “It is increasingly likely that Virginia will face damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and potentially life-threatening storm surge flooding due to Hurricane Florence.”

They stressed, ” A federal emergency declaration would ensure the full availability of federal resources to support the Commonwealth’s efforts to guarantee public safety and rapid recovery from the direct and indirect effects of Hurricane Florence.”

how badly did florence hit virginia anyways?
$75 million in damages from a tornado caused by a hurricane being near Virginia. In natural disaster spending 75 million is the money to pay a flag waver out of the whole budget to repave the road.
Because the people crying "trash sources" are delusional weirdos to begin with.
We didn't need a state of emergency. The twisters we had were pathetic. The floods weren't bad.

No need for a state of emergency because of the coasties.

>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.

You've yet to prove actual examples yet to be proven outside of what the political arm has done. Just because part of their operation is a DNC Super Pac doesn't discredit everything else. It's like saying NBC News can't be trusted because of the actions of GE. You clearly aren't in favor of quality control otherwise you'd be trashing the Brietbart article as well and that's difference because they are specifically designed to be a propaganda outlet and have fired or forced people to quit for not towing their political agenda. Not to mention their story is about a know, and discredited propaganda group trying to push their latest false narrative, compared to this article where it's sourced from multiple outlets and Trump's lawyers have already commented on it to verify it.

But this is all moot information. Cohen has now flipped completely and is working with Mueller, even though he doesn't have a cooperation agreement. This is the worst is worse that Manafort flipping for Trump just because Cohen will expose all of Trump's financial crimes and cover ups. (Remember that locked safe at the National Enquirer)
Also unlike the Brietbart article, legitimate news sources are reporting that Cohen flipped and is talking with Mueller.




What breitbart article? Don't >> it, I just don't see one in this thread.
Then why did you choose the most speculative and biased one to start the thread if there were better sources available? Surely it wasn't just to rile people up for no reason, right?
Variety is the spice of life.

>Trump says that if Christine Ford's sexual assault allegations were 'as bad as she says,' she should have reported it immediately


President Trump has broken his streak of restrained, on-message commentary regarding the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Whereas Trump has previously chosen to merely praise Kavanaugh's "unblemished record" and feign confidence that the whole controversy will blow over, he switched gears Friday to instead call the matter an attempt to "destroy and delay" Kavanaugh's confirmation. The process has been upended by allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school.

Trump alleged a different kind of "assault" — one from "radical left-wing politicians" who want to baselessly attack Kavanaugh's "impeccable reputation." Ironically, Trump said that for those politicians, "facts don't matter."

"If the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says," continued Trump, "charges would have been immediately filed." He said she should "bring those filings forward." Kavanaugh and Ford are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week.

I remember that Brett Kavenaugh is NOT Teflon Don. No one but him has that magic.

I ALSO remember Anita Hill. She got an investigation. She got a hearing. And look where Clarence Thomas is now.

This plan isn't just fighting bad optics, it's fighting supreme court precedent. I don't like it.

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.

On the flip side if they win their case that would set up a legal precedent so that private Clubs cant discriminate anymore.

Yeah, they're pretty much the best. I just look at their website when I wake up and scroll all the way to the bottom, and that's basically my news for the day. That and TMZ text alerts so I can keep up with the latest mass shootings/celebrity deaths. I even have a specific ring tone for it so whenever I hear it I'm like "Oooh, did someone die?" although it's usually just some shitty celebrity news no one cares about.

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.

how do you know what his 'neo-confederate' voters feel about the issue?
>Less Americans died
More people died and more americans died *for no reason* in Iraq. In the civil war at least they were dying for our own interests. In Iraq we just massacred nearly a million Arabs for no other reason than Israel and the Neocons wanted us to.
About THIS issue or the Civil War itself?

Go on /his/ and post a picture of General Sherman. They'll give you their opinion, trust me.
>Be me
>Be /his/
"Neo-confederates" essentially don't exist it's just a pejorative term for anyone who thinks the American Civil War wasn't as simple as a war over abolition. Southern Nationalists , those do exist and are a meme akin various modern secession movements in the US like the state of Jefferson or Cascadia. There were far more sectionalist tensions in terms of industrial vs agrarian class interests as well as over 100 years of political partisanship growing steadily more severe from the days of the Federalists vs Anti-Federalists.

On the topic of slavery, you only need to read through the Ordinances of Secession to read for yourself when/ why
each state seceded. Which amount to
>States rights to secede
>Opposition to racial egalitarianism
>Misc economic squabbles
>Simplying disliking the North

Of course political partisanship is a major issue for history , and a lot of left leaning historians will cry revisionism at any interpretation of the civil war that does not center around their projection of modern identity politics onto history. Why people have this reverence for historians being unbiased is beyond me though.
They did, but it's only use is taking out engine blocks.

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.

Shit, what touch-ups of any cost could he possibly need redone every goddamn month?
You'd be surprised how much japan spends on escorts and assorted whores.
Is this really what peak male performance looks like in Asia?
That hair has to be redone at least once a week, possibly more depending on how fast it grows. He probably has stuff done to his hands and body hair as well.

>WASHINGTON – Sen. Mazie Hirono did not hold back Tuesday in her condemnation of the handling of professor Christine Blasey Ford's allegation of a decades-old sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, telling men to "shut up and step up."

Actually, the DNC is, in effect, making the accusations. Ford sent a letter to Feinstein in which she expressed a desire to remain anonymous and did not wish to come forward. The letter was only to be used as a tool to see if there were other, similar accusations out there. In fact, Ford can't specifically remember who was at the alleged party, when it took place (even the year) or where it took place.

Feinstein only released her name when it was leaked to the press. However, at the time it was leaked to the press, only three people knew about the letter and the incident: Ford, her lawyer, and Feinstein. So, who leaked it and for what purpose?
>because you're asking
I'm not asking, I'm stating, and your both misrepresenting my argument and failing to refute it

>based on the conclusions of a prior one in an almost totally unrelated case
Again, a last minute accusation brought forth by the same party, in the same kind of political hearing, in the same attempt at delaying a SCOTUS confirmation, is absolutely related- not by the accusers, but by the party using the accusers as political weapons.

>In what legal universe does that make sense?
One where the DNC exists as it does today.
>This is a high position of government, the FBI already spoke to everyone they could about the guy and nothing came up.
Are you going to find a needle in a haystack when you don't even know you're looking for it?
>you're too stupid to be making comments on criminal procedure and law.
You're too stupid to understand irony aren't you?
>This completely unrelated accusation against an unrelated party by an unrelated accuser in a different fucking century means that we should not even conduct an investigation in this case
Is not how criminal procedure or criminal law works at all you retard
But we've already established you're too stupid to understand something like that so continue

Look who is running for Governor of Nevada, old droopy face himself, and boy is his campaign website weird:

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.

Dude's an idiot. So rapist is raped by another person as a punishment but now that person's a rapist so someone has to rape them.

Just keep these retards in prison like has been done already
Part of the rape experience comes from another person exerting complete control over you and reducing you to an object for their pleasure. A machine doesn't have quite the same effect. There would have to be professional rapists like there are executioners.
What should I call them? I'm taking >>291375 's advice and writing a novella about this. It needs to be more interesting than "professional rapist," or "judicial rapist."
Government-mandated retribution isn't a crime. We don't hang the hangman.
You are legally correct, but it is kind of funny and hypocritical that an action is oftentimes only okay when the state does it. If I kill a guy on death row, for example, I'd get arrested.
