Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson departing
from ‘SNL’

Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson are among those departing from “Saturday Night Live,” leaving the sketch institution without arguably its two most famous names after Saturday’s 47th season finale. Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney will also leave the cast after the episode hosted by Natasha Lyonne. The departures represent one of the biggest cast shake-ups in years on a show that has seen unusual steadiness in recent seasons. McKinnon, 38, won two Emmys and was nominated for nine in her 10 seasons on the show, during which her impressions included Hillary Clinton, and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  CORRECTION*


This show has gone downhill so much in recent years. McKinnon's Hillary was always entertaining, but the writing is severely lacking making much of the humor unfunny. Rather than watch the show, looking for clips of the good stuff meant no need to watch Saturday Night "live"

Every so often someone at work claims an episode was really funny and must-see. One skit might be but the rest is humorless. It stopped being funny at least 20-30 years ago.

So I guess Pete sees himself as either a kept man or he's looking to star in some zombie movies. I really don't see other options in his future.

This show lost its allure for me many years ago. If these are the two most famous cast members, the others must be totally obscure. Honestly, I don't know either.

In my area SNL from the 90's and early 2000's is on right before SNL current shows. What a difference in cast and actual comedy and comedy writing. In the nineties they were moderately they are just unwatchable.

The SNL down years always have the same obvious problem - way too many writers and no actual talent. This latest incarnation was simply writers in search of movie deals for their unfunny characters. Prove me wrong.

The Senate voted to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed on H.R. 7691, the Ukraine Supplemental Aid Package. The motion passed 81-11. This means that the Senate can begin debate on the Ukraine aid package. The legislation would provide over $20 billion in military supplies and roughly $20 billion in humanitarian, economic, and other aid to Ukraine. While Senate Republicans and Democrats overwhelmingly voted to advance the legislation, many populist-leaning Republicans such as Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Rand Paul (R-KY) have opposed the legislation.

The White House announced late Friday that it would further postpone the release of more documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, pointing to the "significant impact" of the Covid-19 pandemic. President Joe Biden issued a memo that said the national archivist recommended he "'direct two public releases of the information that has ultimately 'been determined to be appropriate for release to the public.'" The first will be an "interim release" later this year, with a second, "more comprehensive release in late 2022," the memo said. The memo said that the Covid-19 pandemic has slowed down the process of reviewing whether redactions continue to meet the "statutory standard."

House Republicans on Monday night offered a detailed critique of what they called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “socialist wish list” in House Democrats’ $2.5 trillion proposal for responding to the coronavirus outbreak. “Speaker Pelosi unveiled legislation aimed at exploiting the COVID-19 public health crisis by attempting to force the inclusion of a socialist wish list of policies that have nothing to do with the public health and economic emergency,” said House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Louisiana Republican. After poring over the 1,400-page proposal, Mr. Scalise offered his characterization of Republicans’ objections to the following items:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s new stimulus bill would mandate nationwide “ballot harvesting,” allowing party operatives to return other people’s ballots to polling places without “any limit” on the number of ballots. “Ballot harvesting” was legalized in California in 2016, and first used in the 2018 midterm elections. It allows anyone to drop off someone else’s mail-in ballot at a polling station. There is no process for vetting or verifying those delivering the ballots — no background checks or identification requirements. Democrats dropped hundreds of thousands of ballots off at polling stations in 2018, helping Democrats as they flipped seven Republican seats.

Senate Democrats are trying to use a national emergency to force taxpayers to fund some of their most controversial and radical policies. They have recommended hundreds of millions of dollars in pork barrel funding — including $35 million in funding for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. It’s on page 76 of the massive document. Click here to read for yourself. Democrats did not explain how funding a fancy theater would help stop the spread of the coronavirus. But that amount pales in comparison to the $300 million allocated for the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities.

The San Francisco Examiner's editorial board wrote a scathing rebuke of the city’s archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, after he announced he would deny Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Holy Communion, over her staunch support for abortion. (snip) In response, the liberal editorial board blasted the Catholic leader for "punishing" Pelosi, instead of "right-wing politicians" who "[vote] against health care or funding for the poor." They defended Pelosi as a leader who has "consistently fought on the morally right side of these issues," and praised her as a role model for women. The editorial board argued that by denying Pelosi Holy Communion, the archbishop wasn’t being loyal to Christ.

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has released its latest reliability assessment for the summer of 2022 and, to put it mildly, the news is not good.

These people will get us all killed. Mitt Romney called on our NATO allies to prepare for a nuclear strike from Russia. The US has already invested tens of billions of dollars in military weapons to Ukraine. The New York Post reported: The US and its NATO allies should prepare a “devastating” response to potential Russian nuclear action, Sen. Mitt Romney said on Saturday. The call to action comes on the heels of threats from the Kremlin and warnings from Russian diplomats that the country’s Ukraine invasion could lead to a nuclear strike, the Utah Republican wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times.
