55 Things You Need to Know About Nicole Shanahan

Original Article

Posted By: sunset, 3/26/2024 7:07:19 PM

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. named the Bay Area lawyer, entrepreneur and philanthropist as his running mate. She brings some welcome cash to what will be a costly effort to gain ballot access. Nicole Shanahan is a wild card. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s vice presidential pick doesn’t have the kind of public persona typically associated with politicians. She’s not a frequent-flier on cable news, barely has a social media presence and is interested in some niche policy issues, like reproductive senescence, regenerative agriculture and gut biomes. But what Shanahan, 38, has is an abundance of wealth (which will come in handy as Kennedy mounts an expensive cross-country ballot access effort)


A lot of stuff to unpack from this list. That sound you hear is the stampede of democrat whack jobs fleeing the Biden/Harris campaign for a more modern idiot couple.

She has a look lacking gravitas. But the pocketbook of Great Girth. I guess this will be very exciting for her. Or perhaps she really isn’t interested in the celebrity whirlpool, perhaps just wanting to give back and make a difference. It will be interesting to see if the loons will land.

This is politically incorrect, but one look at her face and I knew this was a radical feminist. I still cannot believe Kennedy made such a radical pick. He has kept his crazy leftist ideas pretty well hidden and sounded pretty reasonable. However, I guess he just could not contain himself and decided to pick someone so far left, young, and inexperienced to fill out his ticket. One look at her and I thought, he thinks SHE could be President?! I doubt she could on a good day fill KJP’s shoes as Press Secretary and that’s not saying much.

The left wing media would have us believe Kennedy is a moderate and his candidacy would pull votes away from Trump. I think his leftist VP pick tells a different story and may be causing waves in the Biden-Obama camp right now.

Every one of these 55 points scream "far Left Liberal". Shanahan met her honeys at a Yoga festival, Burning Man Meet, not conservative plus having a WTO connection, with supporting tons of greenies' organizations. Robert Kennedy Jr. almost had us believing he was a moderate, but this VP pick says he's a far Left crazy!

A challenge by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to dismiss an open records lawsuit about her office has attracted the scrutiny of one of Donald Trump's co-defendants in the Georgia election interference case. Willis is leading the case against the former president, who is accused in an indictment of trying to overturn his 2020 election loss in the state. [snip] In the latest development on the open records complaint, Willis' office said in court papers that it is "an entity not capable of being sued" and has immunities under Georgia law that make it "exempt from disclosure under the Open Records Act."

Iran's unprecedented missile and drone strike on Israel is unlikely to prompt dramatic sanctions action on Iran's oil exports from the Biden administration due to worries about boosting oil prices and angering top buyer China, said analysts. Shortly after Tehran launched its weekend attack - retaliation for Israel's suspected April 1 strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus - House Republican leaders accused President Joe Biden of failing to enforce existing measures and said they would take up this week a series of bills to sharpen sanctions on Iran.

Tensions between Hamas and Jordan have soared in recent days, with officials in Amman suggesting that the Jordanian citizenship of the terror group's leaders be revoked. Raising Amman's ire was an incendiary speech by Hamas leader Khaled Masha'al. Speaking in Amman on March 27, Masha'al called on Jordanians to "mix Arab blood with Palestinian blood." The speech sent shockwaves through the kingdom, sparking demonstrations and clashes, particularly in the vicinity of the Israeli embassy in Amman's Al Tla'a Al Sharqi neighbourhood.

Liad Gross visits "Hostage Square" every week to remember. During Purim, a usually joyful Jewish holiday that celebrates survival and continuity, she took the unusual approach of dressing up covered in makeup to look bruised and beaten, as if a victim of assault. Six months from Hamas' attack, the deadliest single assault against Jews since the Holocaust, there isn’t much celebrating going on in Israel. On Oct. 7, about 1,200 people were killed and 240 more were dragged to the Gaza Strip as hostages. More than 100 have been released and about 100 are believed to be still alive in captivity.

South Africa's economic struggles may have pushed it to explore alternative partnerships. South Africa’s support for the Palestinian cause is the culmination of a confused and increasingly troubling diplomatic trend for a country with whom the U.S. now questions its bilateral cooperation, critics have claimed. "The South African government has fallen hook, line and sinker for Russian propaganda," Peter Doran, an adjunct senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) and former president of the Center for European Policy Analysis, told Fox News Digital. "Russia has proposed to all African countries that the United States and Western powers are colonialists, whose interests are not aligned with theirs,
How AI is being used to prevent illegal fishing 3 replies
Posted by sunset 4/5/2024 4:34:04 PM Post Reply
Late last year, the Spanish government fined 25 Spanish-flagged fishing ships that had been operating near Argentina's territorial waters. The financial penalties were imposed because the vessels had illegally turned off the GPS-based automatic identification systems (AIS), which were transmitting their positions. This is often a sign that a vessel is engaged in illegal fishing. "It's estimated that illegal or unregulated fishing is as much as 20% of what's caught," says David Kroodsma, head of the research team at Global Fishing Watch. Such illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing may catch as much as 26 million tonnes of fish every year, or one in every five fish.

Israeli intelligence sources reveal use of ‘Lavender’ system in Gaza war and claim permission given to kill civilians in pursuit of low-ranking militants. The Israeli military’s bombing campaign in Gaza used a previously undisclosed AI-powered database that at one stage identified 37,000 potential targets based on their apparent links to Hamas, according to intelligence sources involved in the war. In addition to talking about their use of the AI system, called Lavender, the intelligence sources claim that Israeli military officials permitted large numbers of Palestinian civilians to be killed, particularly during the early weeks and months of the conflict.

The city of Berkeley, California, has agreed to repeal the nation’s first-ever gas ban, raising questions about the fate of similar restrictions on fossil fuels across the West. Berkeley unveiled the decision about its 2019 restrictions on gas hookups for new buildings as part of a legal agreement Friday ending a lawsuit brought by the California Restaurant Association. Berkeley said it will stop enforcing the policy while it goes through the legal process of repealing the ban. The California Restaurant Association touted the settlement, saying it should set a precedent for dozens of cities and counties in California to rescind their own gas bans modeled after Berkeley’s.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by two dozen conservative state lawmakers that claimed ballot access initiatives by President Joe Biden and Gov. Josh Shapiro usurped the state Legislature’s authority to direct federal elections in the commonwealth. U.S. District Judge Jennifer P. Wilson’s one-page order on Tuesday grants motions by state and federal officials to dismiss the case. The order also denies a request by two dozen conservative lawmakers for a preliminary injunction to block the ballot access initiatives, including Shapiro’s executive order implementing automatic voter registration for driver’s license applicants. In a statement, Shapiro said automatic voter registration is safe, secure, efficient, and entirely within his administration’s authority.

The US and its allies have weighed striking Yemen’s Houthi militants after telling them to either halt their attacks on ships in the Red Sea or face unspecified action. Washington and a dozen nations this week warned the Iran-backed Houthis would “bear the responsibility of the consequences” if they persisted with their attacks in the crucial maritime trade artery. Several military and naval experts interviewed by Bloomberg have interpreted this as a threat of imminent strikes against the group, though such a move runs the risk of making matters worse, so more limited action is also a possibility.

President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign “plans to spend every day until November 5” hammering the issue of abortion and painting former President Donald Trump and Republicans as extreme, the Washington Post reported. Biden campaign officials reportedly see abortion as a “potential silver bullet” and hope the issue will “mobilize their core voters, bring disaffected voters back into the fold, and make inroads with voters whom Democrats have often struggled to win,” White House reporter Tyler Pager wrote, noting that the tactic comes as many Americans are worried about Biden’s age and inflation, which “threatens to hurt his reelection.”

In 410AD, the city of Rome was sacked by the Visigoths under their king, Alaric. The Germanic tribes had invaded Italy and laid siege to the Eternal City, eventually breaking in and putting Rome to the sack. Now, today, the United States faces some implacable enemies. Still, there is a difference between Rome in 410 and the U.S. in 2024: Our enemies are already within the city walls, and the civic leadership seems unwilling to do anything about it. On Saturday, "anti-war activists" gathered in a Teamster's Union hall in Chicago.

Similarly, The Gateway Pundit has also chosen not to disclose the student’s identity. Leah McGhee, the mother of the student, reported that the vocabulary exercise included the word ‘alien’.

Biden and his wife earned four-fifths of their income from their jobs as president and teacher at Northern Virginia Community College, respectively.

Lawmakers and privacy experts on both sides of the political spectrum are sounding the alarm on a provision in a spy powers reform bill that one senator described as one of the “most terrifying expansions of government surveillance” in history. Eighty-six House Republicans last Friday voted for the Reforming Intelligence and Securing America Act (RISAA), a bill that would reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Section 702 is a government surveillance authority that is meant to target foreign adversaries, but often surveils Americans’ communications without a warrant.
