I can’t tell any more. I’m confused. I’m going to bed. Good night.
Chelsea Clinton said in a SiriusXM interview Thursday that she believes it is “unchristian” to go back to a pre-Roe v. Wade America.
In response to a question about how she stayed optimistic about her fight to keep abortion legal, Clinton replied that “every day I make the moral choice to be optimistic that my efforts and my energies, particularly when I’m fortunate enough to be in partnership with fellow travelers, hopefully will make a difference.”
A journalist’s job is to speak power to truth, to protect the Narrative, and to suppress dissent. Without journalists, Americans would have greater knowledge of public affairs, have more free speech, and enjoy a more elevated public discourse. Unfortunately, like roaches, flesh eating bacteria, and Amy Schumer, journalists exist and all our lives are worse as a result. And they spend an increasing amount of time looking for family members or former friends and romantic partners of conservatives and nationalists that they can weaponize against their targets.
…“Our father was a Nazi sympathizer, racist, anti-Semite and homophobe,” Curtis Ingraham, who is gay, wrote alongside a video of his sister. “Like father like daughter?”
The romance novelist who wrote the “The Wrong Husband” now stands accused of killing her husband.
The 68-year-old writer, Nancy Crampton-Brophy, is facing charges of murder with a firearm constituting domestic violence, according to the Portland, Oregon district attorney’s office.
Nancy was arrested Wednesday at her home in Beaverton. Her husband, 63-year-old Daniel Brophy, was killed in June.
Students at Oregon Culinary Institute, where Daniel Brophy was a lead instructor, found him shot inside a classroom.
The day after Brophy’s death, Nancy posted a statement on Facebook:
“I have sad news to relate, my husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy, was killed yesterday morning. I’m struggling to make sense of everything right now. While I appreciate your loving responses, I am overwhelmed.”
To be fair, the book wasn't titled "How to Murder Your Husband and Get Away With It" https://t.co/AjsW0T0Nyd

PM’s Social Democrats help out “racist far-right” Sweden Democrats Party and Moderate Party by translating their policies to arabic in Fakebook post, taking the trouble to leftsplain them and embellish them somewhat.
Some of the accusations made against the two parties include that they will: Change laws that concern immigrants and especially Muslims, forbid Mosques and halal meat, make wearing a hijab illegal if you’re under the age of 18 and shut down all Islamic schools. Other claims allege the parties will return a very high number of refugees to their home country and accuse parents of crimes in order to take Muslim children away from their parents.
This story is insane. A Buddhist woman complains that a mosque is too loud. In response hundreds of angry people ransack Buddhist temples & attempt to burn down her house. The woman gets 18 months in jail for committing blasphemy. https://t.co/5Qg6xKaTLb pic.twitter.com/Tx3jBMl9c5

More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).
Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”
Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1. Chang won the election with 49 percent of the vote; Scott came in third with 11 percent of the vote.
…The various off-color remarks were heard by multiple people connected with Chang, including Chang’s husband, who spoke with Metro Times. Sean Gray says after overhearing Cook disparage Chang outside a precinct on the east side of Detroit, “I … asked her not to speak about my wife in that manner. At that time she said to the voter that ‘these immigrants from China are coming over and taking our community from us.’ Further, she said it ‘disgusts her seeing black people holding signs for these Asians and not supporting their own people.'”
“There is no humor in Islam” — Ayatollah Khomeini
No, Khomeini, you were wrong. Just look at this.
Within hours of Saudi Arabia expelling Canada’s ambassador, the country’s broadcasters and pro-government social media accounts ramped into high gear digging up dirt on its newest enemy.
A recurring theme of Saudi attacks against Canada is “those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones,” an expression that is roughly the same in both English and Arabic.
For this argument to hold up, though, it has placed Saudi propagandists in the uncomfortable position of having to prove that Canada is a pariah state of oppression, death and misery.
V.S. Naipaul, who towered over the landscape of post-colonial literature, died yesterday. He was my friend, my mentor, my teacher. I learned about his death from a one-line email from his widow, Nadira: “Vidia has gone gently into the night.”
Vidia, as Naipaul was known to his friends, was born in 1932 in Trinidad to a family of Indian origin who had come as indentured labor after the abolition of slavery. Over a 50-year career, he gave young writers like myself — in India, in Africa, in the Islamic world and in South America — a searing glimpse of our own societies. At a time when the West was full of apology, and the non-West a sense of grievance, his great theme was the harm countries like mine would do themselves if they did not take responsibility for their histories. Through a quality of vision that was tantamount to cruelty, he showed the West how many of its assumptions were a celebration of its safety, while forcing us in the East to look hard at our places. There were many, including his contemporary and fellow Nobel laureate, Derek Walcott, who believed his concern was a form of contempt; Edward Said described him as an “intellectual catastrophe.” I adored him. His honesty set me free.
A 45-year-old American man was attacked by a bunch of “manteros” (the Spanish name for African migrants who sell junk on the streets of the capital). He was at the Place of Catalonia when he saw the manteros arguing with a woman who couldn’t cross the road with her pushchair.
The American tourist tried to help her but the migrants hit him with a belt, it was like “a whip” describe police sources.
He was hit so hard it caused “internal bleeding and a deep wound”. Fortunately, he was tended to by medics before being transferred to Barcelona’s Clinic hospital, where he was treated and is now out of danger.

THIS is the shocking moment a British tourist slaps an immigration officer after being hit with a $4,000 fine for overstaying her visa.
Auj-e Taqaddas, 42, arrived at the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, Indonesia, on Saturday night to catch a flight to Singapore.
But after receiving her boarding pass, she went through immigration checks where officers noticed her month-long visa had expired on February 18.
Auj-e, who is of Pakistani descent, was taken into an office at 9.25pm where airport staff told her she had to pay a $25 fine for each of the days overstayed.
The bill sent Auj-e into a foul-mouthed rage and she was caught on camera branding an immigration officer a “f***ing bastard”.
After all the wailing about the children streaming across our wide-open, wall-less border, there was very little media interest in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday on this very subject. Knowing facts could interfere with their showboating displays of compassion.
Among the facts journalists might have learned is that, although the Constitution technically gives Congress the power to write laws, it turns out our immigration laws are written by the ACLU.
…The 20-day limit is unfortunate because, from capture to final order, an immigration proceeding takes 30 to 40 days. Illegals who are detained at the border cost the taxpayers $1,600 to remove. By contrast, releasing illegals, even under the much-celebrated “alternatives to detention” (ankle monitors and “community supervision”), costs U.S. taxpayers $75,000 per removal—and most of them don’t ever get removed. By some estimates, 90 percent don’t even show up for their hearings.
The biggest spike in illegal border crossings came after Dolly Gee, an Obama-appointed federal district court judge in California, announced in 2015 that not only “children,” but also any adults traveling with them, had to be released into our country after 20 days.
I wonder if Judge Gee’s order created any sort of incentive. Drag some unfortunate child across thousands of miles of desert and … YOU WIN! You’re in and will most likely never be caught and deported. Arrive alone and you will be detained and probably removed after 30 days.
How insane was that ruling? It was too much even for the Ninth Circuit…
