In a twisted turn of events, the republicans have commanded that the FBI not investigate the BK accusations.

Now, unless if she wants to go through the humiliation of telling the truth of that horrible rape by facing questioning under oath in front of congress, we will never get to the bottom of this.

Good job Trump, your fucking up the country once again

>Remember how Anita Hill got an investigation for a much less serious charge?
And what did that investigation turn up anon?
While I Google that, explain why it's relevant.
>when a white man rapes her
What did he mean by this?
>While I Google that

>explain why it's relevant.
Because like Anita Hill was to Clarence Thomas, this is another last minute false allegation to try and derail Kavanaugh's confirmation
So by that logic if a murder investigation turns up nothing, it's no reason to investigate any further accusations of murder.

That is black hole tier levels of braindead logic.

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.

Nice publicity stunt.

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."

Well, more people should care about him wasting tax payers money on his ego trips and vacations.
Welp, this is bias opinion speaking here, so tread lightly, but:
There are lots of good reasons for Trump to continue doing rallies.
For one thing, riling (rileing?) people up is what Trump does best, and neither side can deny this. Doing the rallies riles up his supporters, and this is really playing to Trumps strength. His rallies and speaking events was arguably the most successful gimmick of his campaign, why stop if it's still making people love him? Why stop if it works? He also showed inhumane amounts of energy during the campaign trail with these and it makes him seem energetic to continue. Additionally, with all the attacks and vicious nonstop hating on him (sometimes justified sometimes not), he's still human. Maybe he needs these rallies to help him overcome critisizm that would drive lesser men to suicide. Maybe he gets energy from being surrounded by people who love him.

I heard you, and I've complained about these gripes as well. But it's hard to make this criticism not seem partisan. Bush took golf trips and people bitched about it, people also bitched about Obama's vacation costs. So, pardon me, but it seems to be par for the course.
i see what you did there, you cheeky cunt you
Who cares if it's seen as partisan,it's the facts. And also proves Trump is a hypocrite.
Because he critisized Obama for his time management as president? That's fair. But the label hypocrite just doesn't cary as much weight as it should these days. Plenty of hypocrisy on both sides of the spectrum.


>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."

>The Hawaii Democrat slammed the Senate Judiciary Committee's move to hold a hearing on the allegation on Monday and said the men on the committee should join the call for an FBI investigation ahead of any testimony from Kavanaugh or Ford. Hirono is a member of the committee.

>Hirono said she expected "the enlightened men in our country" to "rise up to say, 'We cannot continue the victimization and the smearing of someone like Dr. Ford.'"

>When a reporter asked if it helped that there are women on the Judiciary Committee, Hirono let loose.

>"Guess who's perpetuating all of these kind of actions? It's the men in this country," she told reporters. "And I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up."

>She added that it was fair to say she is "upset" by the "unfairness" of the situation.

Kek, you misogynist
I know you've been operating under the narrative that the FBI is incompetent but this is really old hat for them.

Interview his classmates. Interview her classmates interview Mark Judge. Interview her therapist. Interview her husband. Very quickly patterns emerge and allow corroboration.

The incident would not have occurred in a total vacuum. Even if she didn't talk about it, if it DID happen her behaviour would have undergone a sudden and massive change - classmates will notice that, it's high school.

I wouldn't be surprised of they locked.it down in a week.
>Interview his classmates.
The ones who have publicly denied being at the party despite Ford claiming they were there?
>In a letter penned by his attorney, Eric Bruce, and sent to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Patrick Smyth said that he has no knowledge of the party in question nor any knowledge of “the allegations of improper conduct” that Ford has levelled against Kavanaugh.

> Interview her classmates
Like Cristina Miranda King?
>A former classmate of Christine Blasey Ford tells NPR that she does not know if an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place as she first suggested on social media.
>"That it happened or not, I have no idea," Cristina King Miranda told NPR's Nina Totenberg. "I can't say that it did or didn't."

>Interview her therapist
The therapist that recorded her session where she said there was 4 attackers, who's notes Ford is now disputing while claiming there were only 2?

seriously. Kavanaugh might be a rapist and there should be an investigation but holy fuck the Dems just can't stop themselves from throwing all men under the bus. I'm usually on the left but the blatant misandry lately is too much.
>I know you've been operating under the narrative that the FBI is incompetent but this is really old hat for them
Where did I even imply that the FBI was incompetent? They already investigated him and this allegation, not even a rumor of it, didnt come up. Why would they interview her classmates when she claims she never told anyone until 2012? Why would they interview a husband she wouldnt meet for decades? Why do you think a teenager being unusually moody for a few weeks 40 years ago would be something someone would remember, especially without a timeframe?
>I bet theyll lock it down within the week
Yeah Friday when the deadline to ye or nay to a hearing on Monday regarding the allegations

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.

Reminder that eye for an eye is literal kikery.

What would a judicial rape look like? Would there be some kind of rape machine? Would a sentence be something like, "fifteen minutes of rhythmic anal penetration with an object of no less than six inches in length and five inches of girth." Would a proctologist have to be present to confirm that a prisoner was raped properly? What about rapists who like a good hard ass fucking?

Mexico refused to pay for President Donald Trump’s wall, and now it appears American taxpayers may never have to either.

A spending bill to keep the federal government running past Sept. 30 will not contain money for Trump’s biggest presidential campaign promise. Republican congressional leaders are instead postponing the fight over a wall along the southwestern border until after the November midterm elections — when Democrats will have more influence and be weeks away from taking control of the House.

“This is the GOP Congress giving the president a big middle finger,” said Stan Collender, a budget expert who spent years working for House and Senate committees. “It’s the Republican Congress saying, ‘We’re going to make it more difficult for you to shut down the government because it’s not good for us, even if it’s good for you.’”

While most Americans are not particularly interested in a border wall, Trump’s base is, and will likely see his readiness to sign yet another spending bill that lacks wall money as a broken promise.

“There is a strong segment of Trump voters that’s demoralized,” said William Gheen, the head of the hard-line group Americans for Legal Immigration. “Because there’s no wall, illegal crossings are at a new peak, possibly higher than Obama levels, and the Republican House spent its time on an amnesty compromise bill rather than enforcement like we were promised by Trump.”

Normally I would agree with you, but the way you stated it gave me the same gut feeling as when a black racist states that racism is "power+privilege" thereby absolving him/her of all guilt.
Manipulating a definition of a word is a poor way to win an argument. Trump may be making less money than he would have had he not run, but that does not prove that there is no corruption at all.
Removing entitlement means slavery and stronger dollar. Who benefits? People with billions in dollars. People with infrastructure to employ people.

Can't afford to live even when you are working full time? Work at +2 shit jobs.

Those born to power won't have to work ever and can live in luxury. People who get in and oblige to this will have slightly better life for themselves. But it doesn't have to be like this If things were like in EU life would be better. Right now America is influenced by the people with money to stay as a backwater.

Basically, its an economic model where everyone is happy, jewery is illegal, and everyone has high paying tech jobs
Yes, the famous 100% employment. Of course they gamed that number like mad by making it illegal for any one they didn't like to work, thus removing them from the measurement. Not just news, but poles, gypsies, Slavs, and any one else who disagreed. If you cut down on the workforce by 15% it's not hard at all to get 100% employment.

We ARE talking about the people who INVENTED MODERN PROPAGANDA.

Of course the story falls flat when you actually learn economics and realize that in any system that doesn't involve socialist-style top-down control of the economy, 100% employment is BAD. It means no one is transitioning between jobs, no one is coming into the work force to look for work, and no one is exercising vertical economic mobility.

The only countries that have 100% employment are either reporting their numbers wrong or reporting their WORKERS wrong.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday showed off his marksmanship by testing out a new Kalashnikov sniper rifle and hitting the target more than half the time.

Russian state television showed Putin in goggles and earphones crouching as he fired the silver rifle at the Kalashnikov company's shooting range outside Moscow.

"The target is set up practically at the maximum distance," Rossiya 24 television reported, saying that Putin appeared to be pressing the trigger while holding his breath and between heartbeats as professional snipers are supposed to do.

Putin "shot five times and hit the target more than half the time" the television channel reported.

Russian defence ministry channel TV Zvezda reported the semi-automatic weapon Putin fired is "an ultra-modern rifle for Russian snipers".

Putin was visiting a military-themed park called Patriot in the Moscow region where he laid the foundation stone for a Russian Orthodox Church.

Kalashnikov, known for the iconic AK-47 assault rifle, last month surprised observers by unveiling the prototype for a retro-styled electric car.

putin defeated in judo by female japanese middle school student:

are you retarded? hes letting her do that. The first bout was against an instructor and was real, but the one against the middle school student was apparantly practice for her, have you even watched the video?
before they even start the bout she is positioned facing away from him with the hold ready to do the throw and is just waiting for the signal, and when they signal she does it.
he is her training partner in the video, not her opponent you idiot, its obvious to anyone who watches it
>are you retarded? hes letting her do that.
is joke, comrade

i've been told it's a good example of a defensive fall
Hes an ex KGB agent so not suprising
It's shitty propaganda. Dumb fucker can't even put his entire group on the plate.

>target is set up 'practically at the maximum distance'
>shot five times and hit the target more than half the time

If you want the world to think he's awesome give him a rating better than 3/5. And what does PRACTICALLY mean? I could put a target at 155 yards and round that to 200. Its practically 200 yards!

People who live in a Stuart neighborhood say their neighbor does yard work and walks around his property naked. They say they’ve called the sheriff's office, but deputies say, there is nothing they can do.

"I came out Sunday night to put the trash out, and I look over and he is bent over, winding up his hose, and I'm like that is my view of the neighborhood,” says Melissa Ny, a neighbor.

Concerned neighbors want to crack down on this naked truth, the man who lives at the end of their street is a nudist.

"He works on his car, and he does it naked and everyone has called the police, he is just out there doing his yard work, whatever he needs to do outside, naked," says Ny.

Nude yard work? Neighbors can't bear it.

"Have some respect for the neighborhood kids. Kids catch the bus here. It’s wrong," says Charlie Estes, a neighbor.

Several people in the neighborhood have called the Martin County Sheriff's office, but say deputies tell them as long as he isn't touching himself inappropriately, there is nothing they can do since he is on his own property.

So one uppity slope neighbor has a boner to pick with these folks? She's probably getting turned on and can't admit it. It's Florida, for fuck's sake. He could be raping an alligator instead.

According to USA Today, Nike knows about the coupons, and it's warned all of its US retail outlets to watch out for them. Meanwhile, the trolls over at /pol are congratulating themselves for making headlines with the racist scam—though as Jack Gillis, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America, told USA Today, "scam" doesn't quite cover it.

Trolls on the notorious site’s /pol (a.k.a. "politically incorrect") forum have been circulating fake Nike coupons for “people of color," USA Today reports. The coupons, which feature photos of Kaepernick, promise massive discounts on Nike shoes and apparel for non-white folks and "urban youth" who use them in-store, claiming Nike rolled out the deal "to show solidarity with the things we believe in." Obviously, they're totally bogus.

Aside from being blatantly racist, the coupons might actually be trying to incite violence. According to Snopes, scan the QR code on one of them—say, if you're a Nike store employee—and you'll see the following message: “This is a ROBBERY, Move slowly and put all the LARGE bills in the shoe box OR everyone DIES.”

The confirmation of Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court seems all but inevitable. And yet a shocking new report that accuses Kavanaugh of attempting to rape a girl when they were in high school should bring the process to a screeching halt.

According to The New Yorker, a woman alleges in a letter — which is now in the possession of the Senate Judiciary Committee — that at a party in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a classmate of his “held her down” and Kavanaugh “attempted to force himself on her.”
She says the boys “turned up music that was playing in the room to conceal the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand. She was able to free herself.”

In a statement, Kavanaugh said he “categorically and unequivocally” denied the allegation.

The details of the allegations were published Friday morning, but Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee had already prepared for it, even though they were only briefed by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein on the woman’s letter this week.

Chuck Grassley, the Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released a letter from 65 women claiming to have known Kavanaugh in high school, saying he “behaved honorably and treated women with respect.”

I doubt she'd be that stupid. She'd either say yes or it's a settled opinion that wouldn't need to be re-reviewed. Only Republicans would waffle on a ruling that made segregation unconstitutional.

A mummified wolf pup and caribou believed to have walked Earth over 50,000 years ago were discovered with tissue and fur intact — a remarkable find, Canadian authorities say.

The caribou was found at the site of a 80,000-year-old volcanic ash bed and officials believe it's among the oldest mummified mammal tissue in the world, according to a release.

The head, two front limbs and torso of the caribou were intact. The wolf pup was found with a complete body.

"These specimens will help scientists learn more about the ancient mammal species that roamed Beringia, increasing our knowledge and ability to share the stories of this lost, ancient land," Minister of Tourism and Culture Jeanie Dendys said in a statement.

The calf was found in June 2016 and the wolf pup was found in July 2016, both at gold mines, officials announced last week.

Tony Beets, known from Discovery's Gold Rush show, said his team found the caribou.

"Such amazing things to be found here under the midnight sun," he said on Facebook about the discoveries.

>A survivor of the Jacksonville Landing mass shooting died in a single-car highway accident near his hometown in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Sunday morning, the Texas Department of Public Safety told KIII-TV.

>Ryen Aleman, 25, from Robstown, Texas, lost control of his vehicle around 3:45 a.m. CT while traveling westbound on Texas state Route 44 in Corpus Christi. Aleman was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his vehicle after it overturned several times into nearby railroad tracks, DPS told KIII-TV.


Aleman appeared on CNN and stated unequivocally that there were two gunmen. (4:30) His interview is immediately preceded by a female passerby who said a male survivor fleeing the scene had also told her that there were two attackers. (1:58)

CNN Anchor: "Ryan, could you tell whether there was one gunmen or.."

Ryan Aleman: "There were two. There was two of them."

It's strange how virtually no media outlets covered Aleman's initial recollection, with the exception of Patch Media - which subsequently *altered* their article and misrepresented Aleman's statements to make it appear as if he had only seen one assailant.
