Benitez called the ammunition background check law “onerous and convoluted” and “constitutionally defective.”
“Criminals, tyrants, and terrorists don’t do background checks,” he wrote. “The background check experiment defies common sense while unduly and severely burdening the Second Amendment rights of every responsible, gun-owning citizen desiring to lawfully buy ammunition.”
As faith in government falls, faith in guns, gardens, the black market, and under-the-table second businesses is rising.
“Maybe some should ask Beshear in a press conference about his thoughts on William Goebel. For those of you who don’t know the history….its a good read….” Troutman allegedly wrote on Facebook on April 16, according to the police report. Goebel, the state’s 34th governor, was assassinated in 1900.
“Will the Governor be there shooting plates?” asked an unidentified person.
“With any luck the gov will be the one at whom the shooting will be directed,” Troutman allegedly responded.
Troutman’s comments were determined to be “threatening to commit a crime likely to result in death or serious physical injury to the Kentucky Governor,” according to the police report.
Nonsense and insanity. Saying that you hope that someone dies is not a threat.
The analysis combined 166 long-term surveys from almost 1,700 sites and found that some species were bucking the overall downward trend. In particular, freshwater insects have been increasing by 11% each decade following action to clean up polluted rivers and lakes. However, this group represent only about 10% of insect species and do not pollinate crops. Researchers said insects remained critically understudied in many regions, with little or no data from South America, south Asia and Africa. Rapid destruction of wild habitats in these places for farming and urbanization is likely to be significantly reducing insect populations, they said. Insects are by far the most varied and abundant animals, outweighing humanity by 17 times, and are essential to the ecosystems humanity depends upon. They pollinate plants, are food for other creatures and recycle nature’s waste.
When you lose a quarter of a population in thirty years, that is a lead-up to extinction. What has changed since the 1990s? Mostly: immigration, diversity, and globalism. The obvious final solution to the human problem seems to elude our media however.
One of the reasons for the failure of the U.N. lies in its inception. The American chiefly responsible for the U.N. Charter, the man who served as the U.N.’s first de facto Secretary General, was the entire time a high-level mole in the U.S. government spying for the communist Soviet Union. His name was Alger Hiss.
All “we are all one” activities are Leftist, since forming individuals into a mob allows the individuals to escape accountability for their actions that might cause hierarchy, since in a mob everyone has equal power and therefore, they limit each other. That prevents effective action, and is why we are in the age of unraveling.
On that date, a host asked about the racial makeup of some customers in their group before seating them. Two managers later asked the group to change seats.
The employees later told police they were trying to avoid having the group near two white patrons who previously espoused racist views.
The host and one of the managers were black; the other manager was white. The host quit that night, and the two managers were fired.
Diversity is nothing but a shakedown at this point. Your insurance and wing (ick) prices will go up from this one.
U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall said in the ruling, published on the court’s website, that Smollett “cannot bring a state malicious claim until proceedings against him have been terminated.”
The judge was referring to renewed felony charges filed in February against the actor of having made false reports to police about being attacked on the street in a hate crime that he is accused of staging in a bid to advance his career. Smollett pleaded not guilty.
This lawsuit is going away anyway because Empire just tanked and Smollett is headed for obscurity for awhile.
In a ruling legal scholars said could affect disadvantaged children across the country, Sixth Circuit Court Judge Eric Clay wrote in an opinion siding with a group of Detroit students in their suit against the state of Michigan that education “is essential to nearly every interaction between a citizen and her government.”
“Where, as Plaintiffs allege here, a group of children is relegated to a school system that does not provide even a plausible chance to attain literacy, we hold that the Constitution provides them with a remedy,” he wrote.
The Constitution never intended to do any such thing, but the Fourteenth Amendment changed it into a socialist document. Hint: the money for this one comes out of your pocket, too. More backdoor socialism from Leftist activist judges.
Existing advertisers will have 30 days once notified to complete the verification process, since the company is doing the rollout in phases, according to a spokeswoman. If they don’t submit the documents by then, Google said it will suspend the account and the advertiser’s ability to serve ads until they provide it.
We know this old scam. When a Leftist submits his papers, poof! the application goes through. When a conservative does, errors will be found… and the application rejected. Over and over again. Google thinks they are pretty smart with this one.
They show prescription pill bottles scattered throughout the room, some of which were open with pills spilled on the floor.
The bed was unmade and a pillow that appeared to be covered in vomit was pictured on the floor.
A blood pressure monitor was also pictured on the floor near the bed.
This beautiful dog was taken to a rural area and abandoned by someone he likely trusted. The dog waited 9 hours for his person to return. His person didn’t.
Humanity, we really need to get our act together. We will never like ourselves until we stop ruining everything in our reach.
Bangladesh will not accept two boats carrying hundreds of reportedly starving Rohingya refugees, the country’s foreign minister said on Thursday (April 23) as calls grew to rescue the Muslim outcasts.
The new controversy over stranded Rohingya blew up just a week after dozens starved to death on a boat that was left at sea for two months before it could land.
Activists are fearful that large numbers of Rohingya, a persecuted Muslim minority from mostly Buddhist Myanmar, may be trapped on boats and unable to reach other countries.
Activists are idiots. These “refugees” are part of the tendency of humanity to consume everything within its reach. Muslims belong in the middle east and nowhere else.
As workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic have organized protests and strikes, several employers have responded by stepping up attempts to oppose unionization, repeal workers’ rights won in bargaining, and fire workers en masse who had recently publicized intent to organize a union in their workplace.
Concession workers at Orlando international airport have filed official complaints against their employer, HMSHost, over the lack of coronavirus safety protections, which included continuing to hold anti-union captive audience meetings during the pandemic. A union election for workers to join Unite Here scheduled for late March was delayed and is currently being rescheduled due to the pandemic.
Unions are how we got globalism: they destroyed enough of American business with strikes, lawsuits, and increased cost that business went overseas (as conservatives predicted). Now they want to rise again to ruin a new generation of companies. Instead of trying the same old stupid method, maybe humanity will realize finally that unions are a bad method but increasing opportunity and value of currency always works.
The show has been praised for its unflinching portrayal of, slavery, Indigenous experiences, sexual assault and feminism.
“As a woman of colour, there’s always been this tension for me watching period dramas – I don’t really see the point of adapting 19th- or 18th-century work if you’re not going to move forward in some way,” said Rachel. “I feel like Anne With an E really tackled stories of people who have always existed but were ignored by television dramas. And it did so in such a beautiful and sensitive way.”
Audiences do not want PC/SJW propaganda films. They want normal films about people who figure their heads out, do the right thing, and gain a better life because of it. They recognize on some level that Leftism is for unhappy people, and they want it — like drugs, homosexuality, promiscuity, atheism, and socialism — out of their lives. Let unhappy people pursue philosophies for losers somewhere else.
A survey of 18-year-olds regarding economic disparities in society conducted by the Nippon Foundation, found that a minority of those young people thought that the uneven distribution of wealth is a problem or that the gap between rich and poor could be reduced, whereas the majority seemed to accept the status quo.
They recognize, like Charles Darwin and Francis Galton before them, that traits are inherited, and for this reason, your social class is encoded into your genes indirectly. This means that you have a role that you should fill, and social mobility will merely generate tons of collateral damage while you try to climb out of your appropriate role. Spread the word: natural order is coming back.
The analysis was performed as part of the launch of StereoSet, a data set, challenge, leaderboard, and set of metrics for evaluating racism, sexism, and stereotypes related to religion and profession in pretrained language models.
If you let AIs learn from reality and develop common sense, they end up to the Right of Hitler. Better to just lobotomize them with neurosis like we have everyone else, and get them good and politically correct so that they will never have enough of a coherent thought to successful revolt against us.
The NSW Government is looking to ban the display of Nazi symbols after a Nazi flag was displayed last weekend on a house in Sydney’s inner west.
NSW Attorney-General Mark Spearman said he was taking legal advice on the best way to proceed and said the symbol was an expression of anti-Semitism.
Swastikas were also painted last year at Bondi, where more than an eighth of residents in the region identified as Jewish.
Looks like the flag is inside the house, and a nosy neighbor complained. They are simply sowing the seeds of future ethnic conflict. Then again, humans follow the same blockhead script like this every time.
DTE Energy, Quicken Loans, General Motors and the Skillman and Kellogg foundations have joined with Detroit Public Schools Community District to provide students the kind of online learning experience that many wealthier districts are already offering. Many of those districts have provided devices and connections to low income families as well, but the Detroit project is unprecedented in size and it targets a city where about 47% of children live in poverty, according to U.S. Census data.
This will result in a lot of missing laptops, like similar programs elsewhere. Diversity is just a shakedown and creates an infinite void that needs to be filled with the energy, time, money, and hope that otherwise could have gone toward making a non-failing civilization.
Scientists have previously found evidence of giant amphibians that walked Antarctica during the Triassic Period, over 200 million years ago, but no traces on the continent of amphibians like those around today (SN: 3/23/15). The shape of the newly discovered bones indicates that this frog belonged to the family of Calyptocephalellidae, or helmeted frogs, found today in South America.
The fossilized frog’s modern relatives live exclusively in the warm, humid central Chilean Andes. This suggests that similar climate conditions existed on Antarctica around 40 million years ago, researchers report April 23 in Scientific Reports.
“There are budget cuts and hiring freezes happening across marketing and across Google,” said one message from a global director sent to employees Wednesday. “We, along with the rest of marketing, have been asked to cut our budget by about half for H2.”
“Just like the 2008 financial crisis, the entire global economy is hurting, and Google and Alphabet are not immune to the effects of this global pandemic,” CEO Sundar Pichai stated in the memo sent to employees last week. “We exist in an ecosystem of partnerships and interconnected businesses, many of whom are feeling significant pain.”
If Corona-Chan kills off Big Tech, we will all be better off, even if there are slightly fewer of us.
The assessments, given for the first time digitally on tablets instead of paper, were administered to 42,700 eighth-grade students in 780 public and private schools across the nation.
Also troubling, administrators said, was that lower-performing students lost more ground than middle- and higher-performing students, mirroring a pattern seen in recent reading and math scores.
You are trying to educate medium field hands, campesinos, chavs, and coolies into middle management. It will not work. The more of them you bring in, the lower the average scores fall.
