"danced topless in a sheer bodysuit" - What the h does that mean? Was he/she topless, or covered in a sheer body suit? To paraphrase Yogi Berra, can't anyone here get things right?

High on my list of things not to do is let half-naked Trannies perform a lap dance on me. Question: What does "Decolonizing our Collective Work" mean in plain English? Does it mean anything like "Partying on the Taxpayer dime with funds allocated for the Homeless"? Thought so.

I thought Seattle types were against the sexual exploitation of women. I've said it before and I'll say it again - when it comes to sexism, racism and homophobia, liberals are the worst.

U.S. Rep. Adam Smith caused a brief ruckus Thursday morning when he publicly broke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her delay in sending articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate. But within hours, Smith, D-Bellevue, fell back in line, saying he “misspoke.” Smith’s bad morning began with a CNN interview in which he said “it is time” to send the articles “and let Mitch McConnell be responsible for the fairness of the trial.” While he said it had been “perfectly advisable” for Pelosi to try to leverage a fair Senate trial that “would show evidence and bring out witnesses,” he concluded “at this point, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.”

A judge ordered Monday that the Third Avenue entrance to the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle will be closed for the rest of the year, citing safety concerns. The court has received continued reports of assaults outside the courthouse, Presiding Judge Jim Rogers wrote in the order. Rogers, who has long been outspoken about what he perceives as a lack of security in the area, said litigants, jurors, attorneys and employees have reported being attacked. “These safety conditions have the effect of discouraging and denying access and therefore justice to all who would seek it from our Court,”

Last month I wrote about an extraordinary news special produced by station KOMO in Seattle.

President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council. Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200. Many were loaners from other agencies and have been sent back. Others left government work. The NSC, which is the president’s personal staff, was rocked when a “whistleblower” leveled charges that led to Trump’s impeachment. ....was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering

The Oscars 2020 proved the cement shoes for Netflix’s “The Irishman.” The downturn began on Jan. 6, when viewers tuned into the 2020 Golden Globe Awards expecting to hear a few familiar names: Marty, Pesci or perhaps Pacino. The Hollywood icons were seated at a table smack-dab down front, stage right, so it would be easy for the living legends to take the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel quickly when they inevitably won. But those seats would only become warmer and warmer as the night went on, because instead we heard different people called up: Sam Mendes, Brad Pitt and, most improbably, “1917.”

Democrat presidential hopeful and billionaire Tom Steyer has vowed to raise the federal minimum wage to $22 per hour should he defeat other Democrat hopefuls and President Donald Trump in November. According to a report from Fox News, Steyer made the announcement during a campaign block party on Sunday while campaigning in South Carolina. Both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) have also released plans to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.While many states have independently raised the minimum wage to compete with the cost of living, the current minimum wage sits at $7.25 per hour
On the removal of Sondland and Vindman 35 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 2/11/2020 4:43:57 AM Post Reply
Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.

During a Tuesday interview that aired on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden suggested Mickey Mouse could “have a shot” against President Donald Trump. MSNBC’s Willie Geist asked the former vice president as part of the network’s New Hampshire primary coverage if he agreed with Democratic strategist James Carville’s assertion that the Democrats will give Trump four more years if they nominate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).“I refuse to suggest any Democrat can lose,” Biden replied. “I think we could run Mickey Mouse against this president and have a shot.”

Monday on CBS’s “This Morning,” 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful former Vice President Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani for going after his son, Hunter Biden, and his dealings in Ukraine. Biden laughed at the idea of Giuliani possessing information about his son, later calling him a “thug” who is the only person accusing his son of doing anything wrong. “I expect Trump to do the same exact thing he’s been doing,” the former vice president stated. “Why’s he been attacking me from the beginning? Why did he risk — and he should have been impeached — why did he risk getting convicted by going to a foreign leader

Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents. But leaks of the little-known gas in the UK and the rest of the EU in 2017 were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.

The 21-year-old college student who was jokingly called a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” by Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden in New Hampshire on Sunday said after the now-viral moment that she doesn’t believe the former vice president has what it takes to win. Madison Moore asked Mr. Biden during a campaign event in Hampton how he expected to gain momentum following an embarrassing 4th-place finish in the Iowa caucuses. “How do you explain the performance in Iowa, and why should voters believe that you can win the national election?” Ms. Moore asked.

Julia Reichert of “American Factory” received the award and said: “Working people have it harder and harder these days – and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.” The term “workers of the world unite,” comes directly from the communist manifesto and was widely noticed by media critics.

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg has long drawn the ire of progressives, particularly the young and online subset. But with his strong showing in Iowa and surge in New Hampshire, he's now attracting sustained attacks from across the ideological spectrum. (Snip) Young progressives, many of whom support Sen. Bernie Sanders, take issue with his centrist approach to healthcare policy, college debt, and federal spending. They argue his alleged "outsider" status is fraudulent, as he's the child of academics, and a product of the Ivy League, Oxford, and the consulting firm McKinsey. They credit much of his rapid rise to a strategy
