Reportedly Fought for Nazi Germany a Standing Ovation
Posted by Dreadnought 9/25/2023 12:58:50 AM Post Reply
The Canadian parliament, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky have been reported to have given a standing ovation to a reported former member of a Nazi military division. Following addresses to the parliament in Ottowa on Friday from both Trudeau and Zelensky, the Speaker of the House of Commons Anthony Rota prompted a standing ovation as he honoured a “veteran from the Second World War who fought for Ukrainian independence against the Russians and continues to support the troops today even at his age of 98.” “His name is Yaroslav Hunka… he is a Ukrainian hero, a Canadian hero, and we thank him for all his service,”

with African-Americans in This Country’

Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he guaranteed President Joe Biden was “not in any trouble with African-Americans in this country.” Anchor Kristen Welker said, “As you know, in a close election, every single vote counts and as we laid out, his support among African-Americans, latinos, young voters has dropped. How do you make sure they don’t stay at home, congressman?” Clyburn said, “They will not stay at home. We understand what’s at stake here.” He continued, “The problem with me is I spend too much time studying history, and I see what’s going on here. I know where the playbook

Hollywood heaves a sigh of relief. The WGA and major studios and streamers have reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract that promises to end the 146-day strike that has taken a heavy toll across the content industry. Negotiators for the Writers Guild of America and Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reached the finish line Sunday after five consecutive days of negotiations. Day 4 on Saturday mostly involved lawyers for the guild and AMPTP hashing out the fine print of language around complicated and groundbreaking additions to the WGA’s Minimum Basic Agreement. The nitty-gritty details of language around the use of generative AI in content production

American volunteers in the war in Ukraine, many U.S. military veterans, wounded in combat are getting medical care from the U.S. Army. The New York Times reports that the Army’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany has been treating American volunteers wounded in the fighting in Ukraine. Of the 14 fighters from Ukraine currently receiving care there, the majority are Americans. The hospital, previously a major treatment center for service members hurt during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq , is now providing care to those that the U.S. government had urged not to join the war in Ukraine.
A long-awaited asteroid sample has landed
in the US
Posted by Dreadnought 9/24/2023 11:25:21 AM Post Reply
Seven years after launching to space, the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft flew by Earth Sunday to deliver a pristine sample collected from the near-Earth asteroid Bennu. It’s NASA’s first time returning an asteroid sample from space. NASA is providing a livestream of the delivery. OSIRIS-REx, which stands for Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer, lifted off in 2016 and began orbiting Bennu in 2018. The spacecraft collected the sample in 2020 and set off on its lengthy return trip to Earth in May 2021. The spacecraft dropped the sample capsule — containing an estimated 8.8 ounces of asteroid rocks and soil — from a distance of 63,000 miles
WaPo/ABC poll: Bidenomics campaign --
and Biden -- doing exactly as well as
you'd expect
Posted by Dreadnought 9/24/2023 11:11:53 AM Post Reply
So much for the Summer of Bidenomics. After several months of trying to convince Americans that Joe Biden knows economics, the results show the president even worse off than before on nearly every measure, especially the economy. And as both ABC and the Washington Post report from their new poll data, Biden has managed to do the impossible — generate a nostalgia wave for Donald Trump: The poll also asked people whether, looking back, approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled the job of being president. The result was 48 percent saying they approve and 49 percent saying they disapprove. That 48 percent approval is 10 points better
WGA strike: Hollywood studios send writers
‘best and final’ offer as deal nears
on strike
Posted by Dreadnought 9/24/2023 12:14:09 AM Post Reply
The major film and television studios on Saturday evening delivered their “best and final” offer to the striking writers, a person close to the situation told CNN, adding to significant hope that the negotiations to end the months-long strike will conclude with an agreement this weekend. Negotiators with the Writers Guild of America were expected to review the offer and deliver their response. The Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers spent Saturday negotiating for the fourth consecutive day. Should a tentative deal be reached, it would still need to be ratified by rank-and-file members before it could go into effect.
Loathsome diseases are coming to America
across the southern border
Posted by Dreadnought 9/23/2023 10:05:33 AM Post Reply
The border patrol has acknowledged that there are three confirmed cases of tuberculosis amongst illegal aliens who crossed into America through the Biden administration’s encouragement and connivance. This should worry everyone. We don’t think much about tuberculosis, except maybe as a Victorian disease, but it was once America’s greatest killer and, thanks to drug-resistant strains, can be again. The tweet is straightforward: Of course, three confirmed cases are simply the teeniest tip of the iceberg. With people from the world’s undeveloped countries pouring by the millions over our southern border, you can be guaranteed that thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of them are harboring diseases that long ago vanished in America
State Dept IT contractor charged with
espionage, allegedly sent classified information
to Ethiopia

Washington — A State Department IT contractor was charged with espionage after investigators alleged he sent classified documents from sensitive federal systems to foreign government contacts — and likely gave those contacts access to his U.S. government account, the Justice Department announced Thursday. Abraham Teklu Lemma — described by officials as a naturalized U.S. citizen of Ethiopian descent with a top-secret security clearance — was allegedly working for and accessing sensitive U.S. government records at the bidding of Ethiopia since at least last summer, two sources familiar with the investigation confirmed to CBS News.
Newsom Vetoes Controversial Gender-Identity
Bill in California
Posted by Dreadnought 9/23/2023 9:47:10 AM Post Reply
Deviating from his past legislative support of transgender youth in California, Democratic governor Gavin Newsom vetoed a bill that would have required parents to demonstrate affirmation of their child’s gender identity in custody court battles. Under California Bill AB957, judges would have been legally obligated to specifically consider whether parents have affirmed their child’s gender identity or gender expression in determining “the health, safety, and welfare of the child.” The California State Assembly passed the bill along strictly party lines earlier this month, hoping to advance transgender rights in the state.
Dave Portnoy Lights up the Washington
Post After Hit Piece He Exposed Drops

Dave Portnoy has been back in the headlines, and it's for one of the stupidest reasons imaginable. Apparently, holding a pizza festival in New York is a huge scandal. That led The Washington Post to put two reporters on a proposed hit piece. The goal was to pressure pizza shops that were participating to back out by accusing them of supporting sexual misconduct. The fun began when Portnoy caught wind of the coming smear job, though. He called one of the reporters and confronted her, catching her in a lie. When Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy discovered the Washington Post’s Emily Heil had contacted his advertisers and labeled him
Newsom Launches Attack on Federal Judge:
‘No Regard to [Sic] Human Life’
Posted by Dreadnought 9/23/2023 1:26:41 AM Post Reply
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) launched a savage attack on a federal judge on social media Friday evening, calling U.S. Judge Roger T. Benitez “an extremist, right-wing zealot with no regard to [sic] human life.” Newsom’s post was a reaction to Judge Benitez’s ruling Friday that California’s limit on high-capacity magazines violates the Second Amendment — the second time Benitez has ruled against the ban since a partial stay in 2019. Benitez, who was born in Cuba, serves in the Southern District of California and was nominated by George W. Bush. The Los Angeles Times reported: A federal judge for the second time overturned California’s ban on large-capacity ammunition magazines
