The End Of Mugabe: Zimbabwe’s Dictator Is Detained By Military In ‘Bloodless Correction’ Of Power – Daily Mail
.

.
Zimbabwe’s dictator Robert Mugabe has been detained by the military in a ‘bloodless correction’ of power amid claims his wife has fled to Namibia.

Mugabe’s decades-long grip on power appeared to be over this morning after military vehicles blocked roads outside the parliament in Harare and senior soldiers delivered a late-night television address to the nation.

Deposed vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, a veteran of Zimbabwe’s 1970s liberation wars who was sacked by Mugabe earlier this month, has since returned from exile. His dismissal had left Mugabe’s wife Grace, 52, in prime position to succeed her husband as the next president – a succession strongly opposed by senior ranks in the military…

German Homeless Population Explodes By One-Third As Migrant Crisis Takes Its Toll – Zero Hedge

According to a recent estimate published by the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, the number of homeless people living on Germany’s streets has risen by 33% in a matter of just a couple of years, to 52,000.

Meanwhile, as The Local notes, the number of Germans who can’t afford their own home and have been forced to rely on the generosity of family and friends for a place to sleep every night has also risen a staggering 26%, to over 400,000 people.

In 2016 an estimated 52,000 people were living on German streets, an increase of a third on the 39,000 people who were living rough in 2014.

The report also claims that the overall number of people in Germany who don’t have their own home has risen sharply, from 335,000 in 2014 to 422,000 last year.

Most of the people who don’t have their own homes live in collective accommodation or have to rely on the charity of partners or family…

Leftist Chicago Mayor Is Latest Gender Gap Hypocrite, New Report Reveals – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has used the gender pay gap to score political points, but a new study by government transparency nonprofit Open the Books shows his city is one of the worst offenders.

Emanuel, a longtime Democratic operative who was former President Obama’s first White House chief of staff, was first elected as Chicago’s mayor in 2011. He has regularly issued official mayoral proclamations establishing Women’s Equal Pay Day in Chicago and calling on all employers to adopt a “commitment to advance equal pay for women.”

The data compiled by Open the Books show Emanuel has failed to close the gender pay gap on his own payroll, where just 12 of the top 100 salaries for city employees in 2016 were for women…

Senate GOP Tax Bill Will Include Repeal Of ObamaCare Individual Mandate – The Hill

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Tuesday that the Senate tax bill will include language to repeal ObamaCare’s individual mandate, which could make it tougher for moderate Republicans to support.

Conservatives led by GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.) pushed hard to include the provision, which would eliminate the federal penalty on people who do not buy health insurance. President Trump has also pushed for the provision to be part of the tax bill.

McConnell told reporters that adding the individual mandate repeal will make it easier to muster 50 votes to pass the bill.

“We’re optimistic that inserting the individual mandate repeal would be helpful and that’s obviously the view of the Senate Finance Committee Republicans as well,” McConnell said.

It will raise an estimated $300 billion to $400 billion over the next year that could be used to pay for lowering individual and business tax rates even further…

Glamour magazine presented the doll in Muhammad’s honor at the Woman of the Year summit in New York City Monday, the New York Post reports.

“Ibtihaj Muhammad has challenged every stereotype – which to me is the definition of a modern American woman,” Glamour’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive, said in a statement.

Muhammad, an Olympic fencer who made her claim to fame as the first American woman to compete in the Olympics while wearing a headscarf, praised the Shero program on social media and thanked those who chose to make the doll in her honor…

Rabid Anti-Trumper Arrested In California After Threatening To Go On Killing Spree – PJ Media

Have you ever heard of David Kenneth Smith? Chances are you haven’t – he’s a rabid anti-Trumper, thus his story didn’t fit any convenient narrative. News of his arrest was treated as a local story with no national significance. However, if this freak had been a right-wing activist, he’d have been a front-page story in every paper in the country.

Smith, 39, was arrested in Orange County, Calif., on Nov. 2 following an investigation involving the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats after threatening a university professor through emails and posting threatening YouTube videos – in one he talked about going on a “killing spree.”

Police recovered nine loaded firearms registered to Smith after his arrest, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Department officials.

On Nov. 1, Smith allegedly began exchanging emails with an instructor at Soka University in Aliso Viejo about disciplinary actions taken against him for smoking marijuana when he attended the university in 2008.

Residents Ordered To Stay Indoors After Tampa Serial Killer Claims Fourth Victim – Daily Mail

Police believe a serial killer in Tampa has struck for a fourth time after a 60-year-old man was found shot dead. Ronald Felton was gunned down at around 4:51am Tuesday as he crossed the street on the way to feed the homeless at a local church where he volunteers.

Police said the victim, a construction worker and father of three adult children, was crossing at Nebraska and Wilder when a man dressed in all black came up behind him and shot him. His murder, in the city’s Seminole Heights neighborhood, is close to where three other people were murdered in apparently random shootings.

At an 8am press conference, cops conceded the killer was likely the same person in all four cases. ‘It’s very unfortunate here that we’ve had another one,’ said Police Chief Brian Dugan…

Parasitic Illegal Alien Raped And Impregnated 15-Year-Old Stepdaughter To Avoid Deportation – Downtrend
.
Here’s another sick story from the group of people democrats insist make our country a better place. An illegal alien in Milwaukee raped and impregnated his teenage stepdaughter under the mistaken belief that if he was father to an anchor baby he couldn’t be deported. Not only is he now looking at deportation, he’s also facing multiple rape and sexual assault charges.

JSOnline reports that 32-year-old illegal alien Horacio Alvarado had been raping his stepdaughter for years, starting when the girl was just 14.

The assaults took place at the family’s south side home when her mother was at work, or late at night when the mother was asleep. Other times, the victim told police, Alvarado would take her to a friend’s home or to random parking lots where they’d have sex in his car.

And it turns out mamacita is a real piece of shit too:

When she was 17, the victim told police, her mother walked in on Alvarado sexually assaulting her in their home…

Former Joe Biden Secret Service Agent: We Had To Protect Women From Him, ‘Weinstein Level Stuff’ – Gateway Pundit

Every Democrat Presidential Candidate In 25 Years Had Pedophile Ties – Daniel Greenfield

It was the cackle that cost her an election.

The time was the 80s and the First Lady of Arkansas was chatting with Roy Reed. Reed was a New York Times bigwig, a civil rights hero and is currently a speaker for the Clinton School of Public Service.

Back then, Reed was working on a profile of the Clintons for Esquire. The profile was never published. The tapes of the interviews were stowed at the University of Arkansas until they were dug up in ’14.

And there’s Hillary Clinton laughing on tape about how she saved a 12-year-old girl’s rapist.

Kathy Shelton had been raped and beaten into a coma when she was twelve years old. Her rapist wanted a “woman lawyer.” Hillary Clinton took his case as a favor and used every dirty trick to get him off. Even though she admits on the tape that she knew her client was guilty, she accused his victim of being “emotionally unstable” and fantasizing about older men. And she used the little girl’s bloody underwear as the pivot of a blatant lie that got her client off with less than a year in prison…

Following the doctor’s orders might soon be unavoidable advice. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the first drug in the U.S. with a digital ingestion tracking system.

Abilify MyCite, an aripiprazole tablet embedded with an ingestible sensor, uses digital tracking to record whether the medication was taken. The tablet has been approved for the treatment of schizophrenia, acute treatment of manic and mixed episodes associated with bipolar disorder, and for use as an add-on treatment for depression in adults, the FDA said.

The pill’s sensor sends a message to a wearable patch that transmits the information to an app, allowing patients to track the medication’s ingestion on their phone. Patients can also let their doctor or carer view the information through a portal online…

Leftist Insanity Update: Poll Reveals 77% Of Democrats With 4-Year Degrees Think Sex Not Determined At Birth – Breitbart

Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

The main question in the August-to-September survey of 4,573 people is built on the phrase: “sex assigned at birth.” But that phrase was invented by transgender activists to help them claim that every person’s sex is independent of their biology and that a newborn’s sex should not be unfairly “assigned” by the doctors and parents who examine the newborns’ biology and visible genitalia. The Pew survey asked:

Which statement comes closer to your views, even if neither is exactly right?

Whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth

Someone can be a man or a woman even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth

According to Pew’s write-up…

Crooked Hillary Personally Overturned Visa Ban For Islamist Now Accused Of Rape – PJ Media

European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, Tariq Ramadan is facing multiple accusations of rape and sexual assault of minors.

Hillary Clinton’s visa for Tariq Ramadan was seen as part of the new Obama administration policy of embracing more hardcore Islamists.

The New York Times reported in 2010:

Six years after using the Patriot Act to revoke the visa of a prominent Muslim academic, the United States State Department reversed itself…

British Teacher Suspended For Referring To A “Transgender” Pupil As A Girl Rather Than A Boy In Class – Evening Standard

A teacher has been suspended for referring to a transgender boy as a girl during class.

Joshua Sutcliffe, 27, could face the sack after the child’s mother complained to the Oxfordshire secondary school where he works.

The maths teacher said that he accidentally told the teenager and another pupil “well done girls” when he saw they were working hard.

He apologised when the pupil objected but will face a formal disciplinary hearing this week and could face misconduct charges for ‘misgendering’.

Mr Sutcliffe had also called him by a female pronoun on several other occasions, according the Mail on Sunday.

He said in an interview that it was a genuine mistake but that he thought, as a Christian, referring to someone who was born female as a girl was right…

U.S. Breaks Ground For New Permanent Army Base In Israel – Defense News

U.S. and Israeli officers broke ground in Israel on Monday for a permanent U.S. Army base that will house dozens of U.S. soldiers, operating under the American flag, and charged with the mission of defending against rocket and missile attack.

The American base, officers in Israel say, will be an independent facility co-located at the Israel Defense Forces Air Defense School in southern Israel, near the desert capital of Beersheba.

Once completed, the base will house U.S. operational systems to identify and intercept a spectrum of aerial threats, along with barracks, recreational and other facilities required to support several dozen American air defenders.

“A few dozens of soldiers of our American allies will be stationed here permanently. They are part of an American task force that will be stationed here,” said Israeli Air Force Brig. Gen. Zvika Haimovich, the IDF‘s air defense commander…

‘Transracial’ Man Born White Feels Like He Is Filipino – WTSP

Riding in a flamboyant purple vehicle, Ja Du shows up to a coffee shop to open up about his new identity.

Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino. Turns out the purple ride he drives around in is called a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines he says.

Ja Du is part of a small, but growing community of people who considers themselves transracial. It refers to someone born one race, but identifies with another. Sound weird? Not to them. Ja Du says he grew up enjoying Filipino food, events and the overall culture.

“Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin,” he said. “I’d watch the history channel sometimes for hours you know whenever it came to that and you know nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture.”

Two House Republicans expressed frustration Monday that the attorney general has not appointed a special counsel to investigate FBI Director James B.

Judge Roy Moore Announces Plans To Sue Washington Post: “We Expect The People Of Alabama To See Through This Charade” – Breitbart

Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the United States Senate, announced Sunday evening at an event that he plans to sue the Washington Post for its series of hit pieces against him, his wife, his foundation, and his campaign.

Breitbart News was granted exclusive access to the event, which was closed to the press. After the Judge’s speech, his wife Kayla spoke out in a forthcoming exclusive Breitbart News interview – her first-ever interview with the press during this campaign and the first time she has spoken out publicly in response to the salacious allegations from the Post.

At Least 350 People Killed After 7.3 Earthquake Strikes Iran-Iraq Border; Shocks Felt In Israel – Haaretz

At least 350 people were killed in Iran and Iraq on Sunday when a powerful magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit the region, state media in the two countries said, as rescuers searched for dozens trapped under rubble. Thousands are reported injured.

Officials expected the casualty toll to rise when search and rescue teams reached remote areas of Iran.

A quake registering a magnitude between 7 and 7.9 can inflict widespread and heavy damage. Moreover, many houses in rural areas of Iran are made of mud bricks that can crumble easily in a quake.

The earthquake was felt throughout the Middle East, with tremors being reported in Israel, but the province of Kermanshah in Iran was hit the hardest.

Leftist Insanity Update: Toronto Proposes Muslim-Only Internship Program – The Rebel

The city of Toronto has just introduced a new program that will hire only Muslims to work in the offices of City Councillors.

In his new video, Ezra Levant explains that the applicants to this program will not be chosen by elected officials, but rather by something called Dawanet. “Dawa” is an Islamic word for Muslim evangelism. Ironically, those backing the program say that it’s aim is to “promote diversity,” which is ridiculous given the fact that it is only hiring people from one specific religion.

Of course, there is no program that exclusively hires Christians, Sikhs, Jews, Hindus, or any of the other religious communities in Toronto, because that would be “offensive” and “discriminatory” against Muslims.

It should be noted that taxpayers are being forced to fund this program, even though only a small number of taxpayers would even be eligible to participate in it. Once again, the left is forcing taxpayers to fund a program that helps Muslims, which represent a small segment of the population…

Chaos In Detroit: Undercover Cops Battle Each Other In Sting Operation Gone Wrong – Zero Hedge

This weekend, a big “embarrassment” is festering inside the Detroit Police Department after undercover units from two separate police precincts exchange blows during a sting operation gone wrong.

Fox2 says it all started when two special operations officers from the 12th Precinct were posing as drug dealers to entrap city residents in a ‘push off’. The officers were working in Andover on Detroit’s east side, known for high drug activity.

As officers from the 12th Precinct pretended to be dope dealers, two special operations officers from 11th precinct showed up pretending to be customers. As the deal went bad, the 11th precinct officers ordered the 12th Precinct officers to the ground not knowing that they were fellow colleagues.

Alabama Polls: Judge Roy Moore Maintains Double Digit Lead Over Democrat Doug Jones – Breitbart

Two new polls demonstrate that GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore remains unaffected entirely by smears in the Washington Post against him, and his lead before the Post piece on Thursday afternoon remains intact.

One of the polls, which were both provided by the pollster to Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday evening, was conducted on Thursday morning before the publication of the Post piece that afternoon. The second one was conducted on Sunday evening. Together, they show Judge Moore’s lead over Democrat Doug Jones has been virtually unaffected since the Post story came out.

The first survey, which was conducted entirely before noon local time on Thursday, shows Moore leading Jones by 50 percent to 39.2 percent with 10.8 percent undecided. That survey of 1,354 likely voters in the upcoming Dec. 12 special election has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.

The second survey, conducted Saturday evening – two days after the Post piece hit, roiling Alabama’s political scene – shows Moore and Jones with about the exact same percentages as before…

TSA Fails Most Tests In Undercover Operation – U.S. News

In recent undercover tests of Transportation Security Administration security checkpoints conducted by the Department of Homeland Security, inspectors said screeners, their equipment or their procedures failed more than half of the time, according to a source familiar with the classified report, ABC News reported.

The source did not give an exact number, but said the failure rate was close to 80 percent. Members of Congress called the results “disturbing” in a public hearing following a private, classified briefing to the House Committee on Homeland Security.

“Quite frankly, I think I speak for all of us when I say that we found that briefing disturbing,” Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul said, NBC reported. The security checkpoints failed to detect knives, guns and mock explosives.

Rep. Mike Rogers told TSA Administrator David Pekoske the agency is “badly broken and it needs your attention,” according to ABC. Pekoske was confirmed by the Senate this summer…

750,000 Protesters Clog Barcelona Streets, Demand Release Of “Political Prisoners” – Zero Hedge
.

.
Hundreds of thousands of people – 750,000 according to Barcelona police – backing Catalonia’s bid to secede from Spain clogged the streets in downtown Barcelona Saturday to demand the release of jailed separatist leaders.

Close to a million people filled the length of the Avenue Marina that runs from the beach to Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Familia church, while the jailed leaders’ families made speeches.

As AP reports, the rally’s grassroots organizers called for 10 prominent members of the secessionist movement in the northeastern Spanish region to be freed from prison.

Eight former members of Catalonia’s dissolved Cabinet and two activists are in jail while Spanish authorities investigate their alleged roles in promoting an illegal declaration of independence last month in violation of Spain’s Constitution…

Plague Fears Grow As Malawi Becomes Tenth African Nation Put On Alert For The Spread Of The Killer Disease – Daily Mail

Malawi is bracing itself for an outbreak of the plague after the deadly disease continues to spread across the island nation of Madagascar. At least 143 people have died and more than 2,000 others have been infected in Madagascar since an outbreak in early August this year.

Yet Malawi’s health secretary confirmed the country is ready for any reported cases of the disease amid mounting concerns of Africa’s ‘porous borders’. Dr Dan Namarika, principal secretary in the ministry of health, said the country were working in conjunction with Mozambique to help best prepare for a possible outbreak.

He said: ‘We have infection prevention materials ready and groups and teams ready to be activated if there is a trigger.’

South Africa, Mauritius, Seychelles, Tanzania, La Réunion, Mozambique, Kenya, Ethiopia and Comoros have all been warned they could be at risk from a possible outbreak as well.

The last reported case of the plague in Malawi were reported in 2002…

Sheep Can Recognize Celebrity Faces From Photos Alone, Which Is Crazy – Science Alert
.

.
We’ve known for a while that sheep, with their social nature and big brains, can recognise faces of other sheep and human handlers. Now a study has shown they can also learn to identify unfamiliar humans they’ve never met – after only seeing their photos.

This wasn’t just done so scientists could hang out with cute sheep – the results of this study are part of a larger body of work aimed at understanding how sheep learn, to give researchers clues on what goes wrong in the brain when diseases such as Huntington’s disrupt normal processing.

Using photos of well-known figures like Barack Obama and Emma Watson, sheep were trained to recognise people from images, even when they were shown from different angles…

Alabama ABC Affiliate Can’t Find One Voter Who Believes WaPo Report About Roy Moore In Man-On-The-Street Segment – Breitbart

During a segment that aired on Friday’s broadcast of Birmingham, AL ABC affiliate WBMA 33/40’s 5 p.m. local news, political reporter Lauren Walsh sought out voters in Columbiana, AL to gauge their reactions to the Washington Post report that alleged Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls more than 34 years ago.

None of the respondents according to Walsh told her they believed the Post’s reporting.

“It’s hard to believe the events that transpired yesterday,” Gordon Fluker of nearby Wilsonville, AL said to Walsh about the Washington Post report.

Fluker’s response was the standard according to Walsh.

“Out of all the voters we spoke with Friday in Columbiana, we didn’t find one voter who believed the Washington Post report about Moore,” she said.

Columbiana is the county seat of Shelby County, a county that is the home to many of Birmingham’s southern suburbs…

Alabama Accuser Deletes Anti-Moore Postings From Facebook, Rants About Removing Trump From Office – Breitbart

A woman who alleges that she engaged in a legal and consensual but inappropriate relationship with Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore has deleted multiple political postings from her Facebook page.

Some of those postings by Deborah Wesson Gibson were critical of Moore while one was related to Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

One posting shows a picture of Gibson with Vice President Joe Biden and says that she did work for him in 2012. One older version of that image is still on her page while another more recent posting of that same image in response to a posting from Jones’s official campaign Facebook page was removed, but was captured by Breitbart News.

Reached by Breitbart News, Gibson said that she has no comment on the removals of her Facebook posts. Other posts still active on her page repeatedly urge the immediate removal of President Donald Trump from office and show that Gibson “likes” far-left activist groups…

WaPo Reporter Behind Roy Moore Hit Piece Has History Of Writing Fake Checks – GotNews

Washington Post reporter Stephanie McCrummen, who co-wrote today’s hit piece on Judge Roy Moore, has a history of writing fake checks, according to a 2011 report reviewed by GotNews.

According to left-leaning New York Magazine, McCrummen has an extensive criminal record, committing four infractions in three different states. The original 2011 report details how McCrummen’s criminal career began with her writing a fake check in North Carolina:

“Ms. McCrummen’s criminal history began with North Carolina Case # 1992 CR 00654, a violation of the Article 19 – False Pretenses and Cheats section of the North Carolina Criminal Code. Ms. McCrummen was convicted of a crime punishable by up to six months of imprisonment for writing a hot check that was deemed worthless.”

Is it possible a journalist with a history of writing fake checks could also write fake news?

News Nanny: The Race To Censor Internet News – Daniel Greenfield
.

How can you tell that internet censorship is really taking off? Easy. It’s becoming a business model.

Steven Brill is raising $6 million to launch News Guard. This new service will rate news sites on their trustworthiness from green to red. Forget politically unbiased algorithms. The ratings will be conducted by “qualified, accountable human beings” from teams of “40 to 60 journalists.” Once upon a time, journalism meant original writing. Now it means deciding which original writing to censor.

“Can trust be monetized?” The Street’s article on News Guard asks. But it isn’t really trust that’s being monetized. It’s censorship. It’s doing the dirty work that Google and Facebook don’t want to do…

Pennsylvania Democrat Forced To Resign After Police Uncover Infant Porn On His Computer – Conservative Tribune

A Pennsylvania Democrat is facing criminal charges for images of child pornography found on his computers – including some involving infants.

According to WPVI, Philip Ahr, a former member of the board of commissioners in Radnor Township, outside Philadelphia, resigned from his post Monday. He was charged in October with possession and dissemination of child pornography, criminal use of communication facility, and abuse of children.

The 66-year-old handed over his badge and submitted his formal letter of resignation indicating that he would be vacating his seat, the television station reported.

On Oct. 23, Ahr stepped down as the board’s president.

The investigation began in late August after authorities said they received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Ahr had uploaded and shared pornographic images of children…

‘This Garbage Is The Very Definition Of Fake News’: Roy Moore Fires Back Against WaPo Hit Job – InfoWars

The Washington Post dropped a diabolical hit piece Thursday on Roy Moore featuring four women accusing him of making sexual advances on them when they were teens and he was in his early 30’s.

While three of the women claim Moore kissed them as older teenagers some 30-40 years ago, one woman claims that 38 years ago when she was 14 and he was 32 he took her on dates and eventually kissed her and touched her through her underwear.

Here’s the story as the Post describes it:

Alone with [Leigh] Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her…

Liz (Lieawatha) Warren Backpedals After Twice Calling Democratic Primaries ‘Rigged’ – Washington Free Beacon

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) backtracked Wednesday after previously saying the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries were “rigged.”

Warren told MassLive.com on Wednesday that she believes the allegations in former acting Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s new book, but said while the allegations showed “bias” in Hillary Clinton’s favor, the primaries did not rise to the level of being “rigged.”

“While there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary made history,” she said.

A week earlier, the senator was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper whether she agreed with Brazile’s allegation that the process was “rigged” in Clinton’s favor. “Yes,” she answered simply.

Later that same day, Warren was asked on PBS’ “NewsHour” if the DNC’s actions meant “the election was rigged.”

“I think it was,” Warren responded…

“The process was rigged and now it is up to Democrats to build a new process, a process that really works and works for everyone,” she added.

Kevin Spacey Cut Out Of Film And Replaced By Christopher Plummer – The Guardian

Kevin Spacey is being cut out of Ridley Scott’s forthcoming film about oil magnate J Paul Getty and replaced by Christopher Plummer little more than a month before its release.

As fresh allegations of sexual harassment against a teenage boy were directed at the double Oscar-winning Spacey, Plummer was starting reshoots immediately in the role of Getty in the film All The Money In The World, sources close to the production said on Wednesday.

According to the report, all of Spacey scenes will be reshot. Co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams were expected to participate.

The report came hours after a former TV news anchor said Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son last year at a Nantucket restaurant.

Heather Unruh said her son, who was 18 at the time, was “star struck” during a chance encounter with Spacey at the bar at Club Car Restaurant in July 2016. Unruh said Spacey bought her son “drink after drink” and then stuck his hand down the drunk teen’s pants and grabbed his genitals…

German Killer Nurse’s Suspected Death Toll Rises Above 100, Police Say – Reuters

A German nurse serving a prison sentence for murdering two patients is suspected of killing a total of 102 people, more than previously known, police and public prosecutors said on Thursday. That would make him Germany’s deadliest serial killer if he was found guilty.

The man, identified only as Niels H. under reporting rules, has admitted to deliberately injecting patients at two clinics in northern Germany with deadly drugs and then trying to revive them in order to play the hero.

He has confessed to some killings, but police said in August that he could not remember all the details of his actions, prompting them to exhume the remains of 134 people with links to Niels H. to identify further victims.

The investigation has now turned up evidence leading authorities to suspect Niels H. killed 38 people at a clinic in the northern German city of Oldenburg and 62 at one in nearby Delmenhorst, Oldenburg police and the city’s public prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Thursday…

What is worse than college snowflakes perpetual tantrums?

The colleges which continue to coddle them, excuse their petulant attitudes, and placate them

The University of Nevada, Reno recently sent out a campus-wide message to apologize for an off-duty campus police officer who dressed up as Colin Kaepernick for Halloween.

The school’s Assistant Vice President and Director of University Police Services Adam Garcia penned the missive, saying his officer was “mocking another who has taken advantage of his constitutional right to protest,” according to a copy of the email obtained by Campus Reform.

“Police officers are held to a higher standard and denigrating another—on or off duty—is insensitive for its lack of respect and understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted,” Garcia wrote.

Or maybe he just thought it would make a good costume? Or, maybe, maybe he actually was exercising his right to peacefully protest? Either way, the officer was OFF DUTY when this happened, so what Assistant Vice President and Director of University Police Services Adam Garcia is  doing is protest shaming isn’t it? Oh, wait, I forgot, that is a one way street these days

He then went on to note that students have been concerned about their safety in the “current social and political climate,” and that “behavior such as this magnifies unsafe feelings and lack of trust in police, especially when the individual is responsible for the safety of all members of the university, regardless or [sic] color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religion.”

If Garcia is arguing that college students are in fear of a costume then he ought to be suggesting they get some counseling, or meds, or maybe they should simply grow up? Oh of course not, Garcia is in deep apology mode here. Get a load of this. you might want to grab a vomit bag first

“At a time when officers should be heightened in their attentiveness to perception by our community, this act seems extremely out of touch with those sentiments and not is not within the spirit of the department’s community oriented policing philosophy,” he added.

Of Adam Garcia, you cowardly fool. Do you actually expect to win something by placating these bullies? And yes, the Snowflakes, cowering in their safe spaces are nothing if not bullies.Everything these miscreants do is designed to intimidate, shame, and coerce everyone to behave as the Snowflakes demand

And anyone with a shred of common sense realizes that all you are doing is encouraging more bullying.

Translating Hillary Speak

Oh goody, Hillary is back, and speaking “truth to Power” on guns. Allow me to share her words, and what she really means

She has thought a lot I bet. Thought about how to best exploit the evil act to push for more gun control. Tragedy Pimping Hillary. Note what she did not mention

The man who shot the evil shooter, nor the man who helped chase the shooter. No mention of their bravery. No mention of better security at churches, and other soft targets. And no mention of why this evil son of a bitch was not serving a lengthy prison sentence for committing violent acts?

NEW BRAUNFELS, Tex. — He beat his wife, cracked his toddler stepson’s skull and was kicked out of the military. He drove away friends, drew attention from the police and abused his dog. Before ——— entered a rural Texaschurch with a military-style rifle, killing at least 26 people on Sunday, he led a deeply troubled life in which few in his path escaped unscathed.

In 2012, while stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, ——- was charged with assault, according to Air Force records, which said he had repeatedly struck, kicked and choked his first wife beginning just months into their marriage, and hit his stepson’s head with what the Air Force described as “a force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm.”

“He assaulted his stepson severely enough that he fractured his skull,” said Don Christensen, a retired colonel who was the chief prosecutor for the Air Force, adding, “He pled to intentionally doing it.”

Shouldn’t such a person receive a lengthy prison stay for such barbarity? Isn’t that the most basic job of government? To protect the innocent from people who are convicted of violent felonies? Did Hillary mention that? Frankly, is anyone mentioning that? Why did Hillary say we ought to stop prosecutors that allow violent people to plead down so that they barely serve any time?

Prosecutors withdrew several other charges as part of their plea agreement with ——–, including allegations that he repeatedly pointed a loaded gun at his wife.

He was ultimately sentenced in November that year to 12 months’ confinement and reduction to the lowest possible rank. His final duty title was “prisoner.”

Sorry, there is no excuse for such as this. Prosecutors should care about putting such evil people away, legislature ought to care about making mandatory sentences, lengthy, sentences, for such violent acts. Again, let me ask what prison sentence this deserves (emphasis mine)

In 2012, while stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, ——— was charged with assault, according to Air Force records, which said he had repeatedly struck, kicked and choked his first wife beginning just months into their marriage, and hit his stepson’s head with what the Air Force described as “a force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm.”

“He assaulted his stepson severely enough that he fractured his skull,” said Don Christensen, a retired colonel who was the chief prosecutor for the Air Force, adding, “He pled to intentionally doing it.”

Why would such a person ever get out frankly? Shouldn’t such violent people be sent away, permanently? Argue all the gun laws, background checks you like, and yes, the background checks need to be improved, especially the reporting part of it. But the ONLY way the evil bottom feeder in Sutherland Springs does not commit that evil act was if his ass would have been in a prison cell.

Seriously, why is no one mentioning this?

Note! I do not print the names of cowardly evil people who comit such acts of barbarity. 

How can some great artists be so foolish?

….but, as Animal Magnetism points out, some of the lyrics are, well, deeply inane

When I was a kid back in the Seventies, there was a song by the British band Ten Year After called I’d Love To Change The World.  That song included these lyrics:

Tax the rich, feed the poor

‘Till there are no rich no more

Even the seventeen-year old me thought that was stupid.  “If there are no rich no more,” I remember thinking, “who the hell is going to feed the poor then?”  These lyrics seemed to that younger me to describe the very folly of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

Yep, I loved that song musically, but the lyrics? Based in nonsense on top of more nonsense. But, like Animal, I find it is John Lennon’s Imagine that takes the Cake of Idiocy

I loathe this song.  I’ve been called a heartless bastard for saying so, but I nevertheless loathe this song.  it’s the worst sort of mushy-headed puffery masquerading as some kind of high ideals.  Consider:

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

Oh good grief! Could Lennon have been more foolish? Yet, Leftists still buy into this garbage today, and, basically, if you break it down, the lyrics seem to echo today’s Democratic Party rhetoric. Wealth is greed, possessions are bad, Individualism is to be rejected……………

Intellectual? No, just failed, foolish ideas fools cling to
