Pro-Trump group sends 12-year-old girl to interview alleged child sex abuser Roy Moore

quote [ A pro-Trump group has sent a 12-year-old girl to interview Roy Moore, the Senate candidate who has been accused of sexually abusing teenage girls. The America First Project, a political action committee that describes itself as “attack dogs for President Trump's America first agenda”, sent 12-year-old Millie March to talk with Mr Moore in the run-up to Alabama’s special election. ]

At first I was like ahahahahahh - that's awesomely funny!!! And I was like - "wait a second, this ISN'T from the onion??

Southern California SE'ers - How are you all holding out?

quote [ Emergency crews in the Los Angeles area were contending with brisk winds, steep terrain and fatigue from days of relentless work. ]

It's hot and fucked up here with some insane wind gusts. Couple that with a whole lot of rain last year, and zero-zip-nada rain this year and the whole southern part of the state is dry and crispy.

Stay safe - and don't be one of those idiots I have been seeing on the news reports watering down a bank with a garden hose as a 30 foot wall of flame approaches them.

Roy Moore Gets Trump Endorsement and R.N.C. Funding for Senate Race

quote [ The Republican National Committee restored its support for Mr. Moore, the Senate candidate in Alabama who has stabilized in the polls after sexual misconduct accusations. ]

There it is - bat-shit nuttiness. In so called America, we refer to it as "Tuesday."

Jury In San Francisco Finds Accused Killer Of Kate Steinle Not Guilty Of Murder

quote [ A jury in San Francisco has found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a homeless undocumented Mexican immigrant, not guilty of murder in the death of 32-year-old Kate Steinle two years ago in a case that became a flashpoint in the national debate on illegal immigration.

As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump cited the Steinle killing as a justification for his intended crackdown on immigration. ]

@Fox, CNN, ET-al, the comments are mostly "this is what the damn liberals want" or "this is why we elected Trump!", or some variation of. It's a weird way for me to thank SE and it's community who mostly aren't too partisan for rational conversations.

Luke Skywalker Speaks

quote [ In 2015, “The Force Awakens” found more substantial screen time for the senior incarnations of Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford). But Luke was withheld for maximum anticipation, a decision that Mr. Hamill came to accept — eventually — as a gift to him and his character.

Finding that inner peace took Mr. Hamill several months of frustration and self-pity — not to mention a Lucasfilm-mandated regimen of dieting and exercise, during which he thought to himself: “Why are they training me to turn and remove a hood? I could be the size of Marlon Brando in ‘Apocalypse Now,’ who’s going to know?” ]

Good read for all us Star Wars nerds out there.

Japanese woman eats mammoth 10,000 CALORIES of McDonald's

quote [ Yuka Kinoshita, 32, who posts her videos from Japan sat down with five burgers, three large fries and a staggering 23 desserts with three large Cokes to wash them all down.

The slight Japanese super-eater makes light work of the huge meal and even has the energy to give a detailed review of her enormous feed at the end. ]

Also known by her nickname 大きなトイレを詰まらせる小さな女性 (Ōkina toire o tsumara seru chīsana josei).

Big Tobacco finally tells the truth in court-ordered ad campaign

quote [ Ads with these statements hit the major television networks and newspapers this weekend, but they are not being placed by the American Cancer Society or other health groups. They're being placed by major tobacco companies, under the orders of the federal courts.

"The ads will finally run after 11 years of appeals by the tobacco companies aimed at delaying and weakening them," the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights, National African American Tobacco Prevention Network and the Tobacco-Free Kids Action Fund said in a joint statement. ]

A good glimpse on how huge corporate cartels have the money and lawyers to keep things tied up in appeals and countersuits for over a decade or more.

Gene Simmons banned for life from Fox News over his behaviour

quote [ Simmons was appearing on a pair of shows on the conservative news network – Fox and Friends, and Mornings With Maria – to promote his new book, On Power. According to a Fox News source speaking to the Daily Beast, Simmons barged in on a staff meeting, unbuttoned his shirt and exposed his torso, shouting: “Hey chicks, sue me!”

He also told jokes about Michael Jackson and paedophilia, and made mocking remarks about the intelligence of staffers. His behaviour has now seen him banned from the building and from further Fox News shows. He has not commented on the claims. ]

So he got banned for acting like a drunken uncle at a barbecue. Isn't that the faux-news viewer base?

Trump judge nominee, 36, who has never tried a case, wins approval of Senate panel

quote [ Brett J. Talley, President Trump’s nominee to be a federal judge in Alabama, has never tried a case, was unanimously rated “not qualified” by the American Bar Assn.’s judicial rating committee, has practiced law for only three years and, as a blogger last year, displayed a degree of partisanship unusual for a judicial nominee, denouncing “Hillary Rotten Clinton” and pledging support for the National Rifle Assn.

“He’s practiced law for less than three years and never argued a motion, let alone brought a case. This is the least amount of experience I’ve seen in a judicial nominee,” said Kristine Lucius, executive vice president of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. ]

Awesome. Very North Korea type move there.

Trump Announces Semiconductor Company's Return To US

quote [ The company credits the GOP plan with making it easier to do business in the U.S. “America is once again the best place to lead a business with a global footprint,” Broadcom CEO Hock Tan said. ]

Well, that didn't take long. The TPP was killed back in January. Broadcomm has been here a week and has already started a takeover attempt and has just announced that they may go hostile with it if the offer isn't accepted. Interested to see how many shell corporations are funneling Chinese govt. money into BC's coffers in Singapore for this.
