Jared Holt Of Right Wing Watch Is A Racist

No.247356 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Lily white, militant gay propagandist, Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch is attacking a black guy for asking for a cup of coffee.

Apparently he feels that blacks always want handouts.

Why are Leftists so racist?

Like deranged masters, white liberals savagely ride the backs of blacks and other minority groups to race to the moral high ground.

reCAPTCHA sucks Obama's tiny ball sack.

Lawsuit alleges 'forced labor' in immigrant detention

No.246332 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>(CNN)A new class-action lawsuit alleges the private company behind one of the nation's largest immigrant detention centers makes millions in profits while forcing detainees to work for meager wages.

>Detainees at the Stewart Detention Center in south Georgia generally make between $1 and $4 a day for tasks such as preparing food, mopping floors and doing laundry, according to the lawsuit, which describes the practice as a "deprivation scheme" and alleges it's a violation of human trafficking laws. Detainees who work double shifts can earn up to $8 a day.

>Part of the scheme, according to the lawsuit: Depriving detainees of basic necessities like food, toothpaste, soap and toilet paper, so they have to work to pay for those items from the detention center's commissary.

>A spokesman for CoreCivic, which owns and operates the facility, said the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.

>But spokesman Jonathan Burns said work programs at all the company's immigration detention facilities are "completely voluntary" and operate in full compliance with Immigration and Customs Enforcement's standards and follow federally mandated reimbursement rates.

>"We have worked in close partnership with ICE for more than 30 years and will continue to provide a safe and humane environment to those entrusted to our care," Burns said.

>The lawsuit alleges that:

• CoreCivic uses detainees as "a ready supply of available labor" rather than hiring local workers

• Forcing detainees to work and paying them far less than minimum wage amounts to a violation of human trafficking laws

• Detainees at Stewart who refuse to work are threatened with solitary confinement and with the withholding of basic necessities

Trump suddenly decides to abandon plans to sanction Russia

No.246922 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
President Donald Trump personally made the decision to abandon plans to impose more sanctions on Russia for supporting Syria's chemical weapons attack on civilians, according to three senior administration officials and a source familiar with the discussions.

The first senior administration source said the Trump administration informed the Russian government there won't be an additional round of sanctions. The official said the call was made to the Russian Embassy on Sunday. They said the confusion caused by comments made by UN Ambassador Nikki Haley in a Sunday show interview when she said new sanctions were coming made the call necessary.

The second administration official said a high-level person at the State Department called the embassy to say Haley's comments about sanctions were not correct. The source said the State Department official did not tell the Russians they were off the hook or that they would not face any sanctions, but conveyed that the issue was still under consideration.

Trump's national security team seemed to have reached enough of a consensus on punishing Russia for its de facto support for the attack that left at least 75 dead that Haley told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would be unveiling sanctions on Russia the next day.

The White House and State Department did not respond to CNN's requests for comment.

At an early evening news conference Wednesday, Trump was questioned about the scrubbed sanctions.

"We'll do sanctions as soon as they very much deserve it," Trump said in Florida. "There's been nobody tougher on Russia than President Donald Trump."

"With the media, no matter what I did, it's never tough enough, because that's the narrative," Trump said. "But Russia will tell you there's been nobody tougher than Donald Trump."

Poop train cleared after months squatting in Alabama town

No.246896 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Alabama's "poop train" is no longer raising a stink.

The mayor of the tiny town of Parrish posted Wednesday on Facebook that train cars carrying human waste from New York City were finally emptied and cleared, and "should be removed soon." The cars were sitting idle for more than two months after a neighboring county went to court to block the train's passage.

"I know this situatuion (sic) took longer than anyone, especially myself, had hoped it would take to come to an end," Hall wrote.

The town of 982 residents northwest of Birmingham, gained notoriety — and became the butt of several jokes — after complaining that the smell from the train was making the outdoors unbearable, sending the odor of excrement wafting whichever way the wind was blowing.

"Can't come out here and barbecue like I used to," Parrish resident Robert Nash told NBC affiliate WVTM this week. "I know the flies were getting in my house."

Before the train cars were emptied, about 10 million pounds of human waste were on the train that came from waste management facilities in New York. The train was supposed to go through Jefferson County, but the town of West Jefferson obtained an injunction, arguing in court earlier this year that the loading and unloading of containers violated its zoning laws.

But Parrish has no such rules that would prevent the waste from being stored before it's unloaded at Big Sky Environmental, a private landfill about 20 miles away.

The landfill has been accepting "biosolids" from New York since last year. But New York said it would stop sending shipments there — at least for now.

GOP votes to appoint climate change denying congressman with no scientific credentials to head NASA

No.246952 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
The US Senate voted to confirm Jim Bridenstine as the NASA administrator in a 50-49 vote today. The position has been vacant since January 2017. President Trump first nominated Bridenstine this past September.

The Senate went months without confirming Bridenstine after Republican senators Jeff Flake and Marco Rubio opposed the nomination. Rubio had said that he’d prefer a space professional leading the agency, though some suggested the objection was based on Bridenstine’s comments against him during the 2016 election. Rubio switched his vote, citing acting administrator Robert Lightfoot’s departure, reports Vox.

Flake initially opposed the nomination but switched his vote yesterday. His flip “wasn’t related to Bridenstine,” reports Politico rather cryptically. The vote otherwise stuck mostly to party lines, with the Dems opposed to a non-scientist leading the agency. Bridenstine was an executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and member of the Naval Reserve before running for the US House of Representatives.

Bridenstine has received tons of criticism leading up to the vote. He’s demonstrated that he holds anti-LGBT views and has proven skeptical of the humankind’s link to the changing climate. The study of Earth and climate science is a big part of NASA’s ongoing work. Just yesterday, the Daily Beast reported that Bridenstine used money from a nonprofit to benefit a business he co-owned.

The new administrator will come into the office facing plenty of challenges and questions, such as how the agency will move forward with missions like a moon base, the Space Launch System, and the much-delayed, over-budget James Webb Space Telescope.

Hopefully he doesn’t blow it.

The Cuba, what was left by the Castro brothers

No.247264 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
On April 19 the session of the National Assembly elected a new head of state - instead of 86-year-old Raul Castro, 57-year-old Miguel Diaz-Canel became chairman of the State Council of Cuba.

Cuba of Fidel

The unyielding Communist-anti-imperialist and spiritual leader of the Cuban revolution, Fidel, who until his last days was criticized for a tough dictatorship, calling usurper dogma, died on November 25, 2016 at the age of 90.

He was in power until 2011. He is criticized for not being able to create an effective sustainable economy for such a long time and to drive most of the population of Cuba out of poverty.

In 2016, Bloomberg released a healthcare efficiency rating in which Cuba ranked 37th. For comparison, its democratic neighbor Dominican Republic ranks 32nd. Ukraine in this rating is not included, Russia took the last 55 place.

According to the rating, the average life expectancy in Cuba is 79.39 years. For health, the Cuban authorities allocate 11 percent of GDP or 817 dollars per person.

As for life expectancy compared with the whole world, Cuba, according to the World Health Organization in 2012, is ranked 38th. Its democratic neighbors are below: Jamaica - 105 place, Haiti - 155. Ukraine in this list on 138 place, Russia - 123 place.

It is noteworthy that in 2012, WHO recognized the best Cuban health system in the world - absolutely all citizens receive medical care at the highest level and, at the same time, free of charge.

Parkland Student Complains Clear Backpacks Infringe On His Constitutional Rights

No.240050 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Apparently David Hogg doesn't like having his constitutional rights infringed in the name of security.

>On Friday, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left-wing activist David Hogg complained that the school's new policy of making students use only clear backpacks after spring break infringes on his "First Amendment rights."

>After attacking American's Second Amendment rights for over a month, calling the NRA "child murderers," Hogg complained about having to use clear backpacks at school.

>Hogg claimed that the decision by Democratic Broward County officials violated his "First Amendment rights" as he also cited potential embarrassment for students going through "their menstrual cycle" because of their "tampons and stuff."

>"It’s unnecessary, it’s embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture where they’re having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can’t freely wear whatever backpack they want regardless of what it is," Hogg said.

>"It has to be a clear backpack," Hogg continued. "What we should have is just more policies that make sure that these students are feeling safe and secure in their schools and not like they’re being fought against like it’s a prison.”

Florida authorities would like you to stop painting gopher tortoises

No.246687 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission is yet again urging idiots to fight the impulse to paint gopher tortoises.

The department posted to their Facebook page Wednesday afternoon offering a reward for any information regarding a gopher tortoise that was found in the middle of County Road 455, south of Montverde, covered in red spray paint and cement.

The tortoise was taken to a wildlife rehab and will undergo the stressful process of removing the paint and concrete.

Not only is it illegal to paint or cover a tortoise in cement, it's also extremely harmful to their health. According to the FWC, "painting tortoises can inhibit their ability to absorb vitamins from the sun’s UV rays through their shells, has the potential to cause respiratory problems and can lead to harmful chemicals being absorbed into their bloodstream."

Gopher tortoises are considered threatened, and are a federally protected species.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time the FWC has had to remind people to stop painting gopher tortoises. In 2016, not only did the department find two painted tortoises, they also came across a spray-painted white ibis.

Stop painting animals.
