Seattle—When customers buy a beer from the small Seattle-based brewer, Mirage, they might see a message on the bottom of the can. In June, a beer called "Choosey Lover" had a stamp that read "ACAB means all cops." ACAB stands for "all cops are bastards." In a text message, Mirage owner and brewer Michael Dempster wrote, "I used the markings because I stand against institutional racism, of which modern policing is a militarized arm."(Snip) Dempster wrote, "If it means someone won't buy my beer anymore, good. The beer was not created for them. I make my beer for folks who are

Hmmm, so the police might be justified in taking a doughnut break, or two, or three, before responding to any criminal mischief happening at the brewery. In fact the Police Department should publicly publish a list of businesses that don't want police services.

Maybe the rioters will pay his brewery a visit and loot and burn it, since they could care less if you support them, and there is lot of "free beer" to take at your place. That will be a very interesting 911 call. I'm sure he will play his best entitled lie-beral persona and demand that the police arrive and stop this immediately. And I truly hope the police know exactly who and what he is, and inform him that, because of budget cuts and all the looting and rioting going on, they will be there as soon as they have some free "bastard" cops to help him. Current waiting times are 14 hours and 20 minutes...

A riot was declared around midnight Sunday in Portland as protesters flocked to a law enforcement builing, continuing a nightly ritual in Oregon's biggest city. Over 60 calls to Portland police went unheeded overnight as officers were deployed to quell the protests where officers used crowd control munitions to disperse demonstrators outside the Penumbra Kelly building.

For Hell’s Kitchen resident Bernadette Mastrangel, a lunch date with a friend ended ugly—discourtesy of an unhinged and uninvited guest. A bare-chested homeless man, wearing a red, white and blue cowboy hat, flew into a rage when the restaurant manager told him the bathroom was for customers only. “F--k you!” he screamed before turning on Mastrangel’s pal at a nearby table. “He goes crazy, started yelling at us, gets in our faces,” recalled Mastrangel, an eight-year neighborhood resident. “And he spits into her food.” The bizarre and unprovoked incident comes as residents of the Manhattan neighborhood complain their streets are increasingly

A state bureaucrat wants to mandate 500 hours of training for anyone who shampoos hair at a beauty salon or barbershop—but something about her push for the bizarre new requirement just doesn’t wash. That’s because she is also a beauty school owner, The Post has found, as is a second member of the state board that licenses salon workers. A third person on the panel runs a membership and lobbying group for the cosmetology school industry. That’s out of four total board members. If their training-before-shampooing mandate passes, hair washers would have to spend an average of $13,354 on beauty school each

Kamala Harris (D-CA), Waters said, “The president of the United States of America is unbelievably divisive. The president lies. He’s pitting people against each other, going back to the old birther argument that they attempted to use against Obama.

He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you.

More Americans approve than disapprove of Joe Biden's choice of Sen. Kamala Harris for the 2020 Democratic ticket by a 25-point margin, 54-29%, in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Approval of the pick ranges from 86-8% among Democrats to 25-55% among Republicans -- notable that one in four Republicans approves. It's 52-29% among independents, potential swing voters in presidential elections. While reaction to Harris is broadly positive, the margin narrows among those who have strong opinions. Thirty-four percent of Americans strongly approve of her selection, while 22% strongly disapprove, a 12-point margin. One reason is that her strong support

All of these items are interrelated. All three are being eroded. Taken together, it is likely that the NFL has reached its high water mark and instead of expanding, as it dreams, the league will instead diminish in importance from here on out. As to the underlying causes for the NFL's problems, start with the most glaring: the Wuhan virus.

ROME—Father Jeremy Leatherby of Sacramento, California, surely knew what was coming when he continued to preach to the faithful that Pope Benedict XVI, who retired in 2013, is still the one true pope. Since the election upon Benedict’s retirement of Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, Leatherby has shunned the new pontiff and continued to only refer to Benedict as the church’s true leader in mass. Last week, after several warnings, he was charged with schism, defrocked and excommunicated from the Catholic Church. “I continue to regard Benedict as retaining the Office of Peter, as mysterious as that might be,” he wrote in an open letter
