Video Of Milo Yiannopoulos Getting Heckled Out Of An NYC Bar Is Something To Behold

At a New York City pub on Sunday, a conservative agitator faced the music for what many opponents consider to be his relentlessly incendiary rhetoric. Perhaps best known as a former editor at Breitbart News, Milo Yiannopoulos was shouted out of an NYC bar in Manhattan, reportedly by a gathering of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

California police may have finally arrested the Golden State Killer

Excitement is running high after reports that the Golden State Killer/East Area Rapist case — the subject of an in-the-works HBO documentary adaptation of the late Michelle McNamara’s book, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark — may have seen an arrest. Fox 40 in Sacramento reports that the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department has seen a significant break in the decades-long cold case, which Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert describes as “the most prolific unsolved serial killing case probably in modern history.”

Subway Will Close Over 500 U.S. Stores This Year

Another one bites the dust!
Ronny Jackson is history:

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson has withdrawn as President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, he said in a statement Thursday morning.

His nomination was hampered by a flurry of allegations about Jackson's professional conduct.

In a statement announcing his withdrawal, Jackson slammed allegations of improper behavior leveled against him as "completely false and fabricated."
"If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years," Jackson said. "Going into this process, I expected tough questions about how to best care for our veterans, but I did not expect to have to dignify baseless and anonymous attacks on my character and integrity."

Jackson said he was motivated to withdraw from consideration because the allegations against him "have become a distraction" for Trump and his agenda.


Oh, come on. The entire Trump administration is a distraction.

I believe that Trump got Jackson to lie about Trump's health with a promise of the VA job. Everything old is new again. Remember that Nixon got Robert Bork to fire the Special Prosecutor by promising a Supreme Court seat to him...

Daily Beast Suspends Joy Reid Column Amid Scrutiny Over Her Hacking Claims - HP

Quote:
This time around, Reid has vehemently denied writing the posts, contending that her blog was hacked. But as HuffPost reported, only a pretty bizarre course of events would have led to the allegedly fraudulent posts.

Reid’s attorney, John H. Reichman, said in a statement Wednesday that the FBI had opened an investigation into the alleged hacking.

“We have received confirmation the FBI has opened an investigation into potential criminal activities surrounding several online accounts, including personal email and blog accounts, belonging to Joy-Ann Reid,” Reichman said. “Our own investigation and monitoring of the situation will continue in parallel, and we are cooperating with law enforcement as their investigation proceeds.”

Reid dropped out of a panel she was slated to moderate in New York City on Thursday. She informed event organizers on Wednesday night that she would need to withdraw from the CAFE Change Summit, sources close to the event confirmed to HuffPost.

The Change Summit was organized by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and his media venture CAFE. Reid was set to moderate a panel featuring Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana; Ravi Bhalla, the mayor of Hoboken, New Jersey; and Washington state Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib, according to BuzzFeed.

A representative for Reid declined to comment on Reid’s withdrawal from the Change Summit and the suspension of her Daily Beast column.


Smdgh..

MSNBC's Joy Reid Says "I Genuinely Do Not Believe I Wrote Those Hateful Things" - Hollywood Reporter

:problem:

Quote:
The host said she doesn't think she wrote the posts, but admits they don't seem to have been hacked.


:problem: :problem: :problem:

Quote:
On Saturday morning, five days after Joy Reid was accused of authoring a series of homophobic blog posts that were unearthed by a Twitter user, the MSNBC host apologized for the controversy but said that she still doesn't think she wrote the posts in question.

"Here's what I know: I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things," she said on AM Joy. "But I can definitely understand based on things I have said and have written in the past that some people don't believe me.

On Monday, when Mediaite asked Reid about the blog posts, she said "an unknown, external party accessed and manipulated material from my now-defunct blog." On Wednesday night, her lawyer confirmed the FBI was investigating "potential criminal activities surrounding several online accounts" belonging to Reid.

But, on Saturday, Reid admitted that the posts don't appear to have been the result of hacking or tampering.

"When a friend found them in December and sent them to me, I was stunned," she said "Frankly, I couldn't imagine where they'd come from or whose voice this was. The reality is they have not been able to prove it."


If anything, they sound like drunk-posting antigay rants. Rant after rant after rant. For months.

The double-down with the lying and coverup isn't working, Joy. Thing is, she was not alone in those views on the left from the same time period. Everybody now pretends to be on board with LGBTQ rights when they aren't. Be LGBTQ and assert your rights; watch the gloves come off.

It would be a good time to discuss this larger phenomenon honestly, but I highly doubt that's in the cards, either.
