This Alex Jones parody is so good, Infowars is having a fit over it

This Alex Jones parody is really funny https://www.salon.com/2017/11/21/lil-alex-jones-video/

Honestly, it's pretty easy to parody Alex Jones. The gravel-voiced, vein-popping, conspiracy-theorist leader of his own mini media empire and health-supplement sales platform is so impossibly over the top that he lends himself to it. So hyperbolically buffoonish is the host that you sometimes have wonder if his whole public presence isn't some kind of Andy Kaufmanesque art project critiquing modern broadcasting. Indeed, it may be.

The ease to which Jones lends himself to satire, however, doesn't make the web series "Lil' Alex Jones" from Cafe any less enjoyable. Starring a particularly feisty child, the mini-show zeroes in on Jones' outsized petulance which, let's face it, is only significantly different from that of a pre-teen in its subject matter.

Here, Lil' Alex Jones confronts the evils of Flintstones Chewable Vitamins, censorship at the book fair, his stepdad, Mark, and whatever shadowy cabal of illuminati is secretly pouring pee into his bedsheets. The tone is perfect, as is Lil' Alex Jones' constant hawking of snake-oil supplements, one of which is guaranteed to bring on puberty in children as young as nine.




Federal judge says Trump administration cant stop funding sex-reassignment surgery for military mem

Source: Washington Post

A second federal judge has halted the Trump administration’s proposed transgender military ban finding that active-duty service members are “already suffering harmful consequences” because of the president’s policy.

The ruling Tuesday from U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis in the Maryland case comes just weeks after another judge in Washington blocked the administration’s proposal that would have stopped military recruitment of transgender men and women and possibly forced the dismissal of current service members starting in March.

The preliminary injunction issued by the judge in Baltimore on Tuesday goes further than the earlier ruling by also preventing the administration from denying funding for certain medical care.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton draws first Democratic challenger for 2018

A Susman Godfrey partner is running against Ken Paxton. https://www.texastribune.org/2017/11/08/paxton-draws-first-democratic-challenger-2018/

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is getting his first Democratic opponent for re-election.

Attorney Justin Nelson is entering the race to be the state's top lawyer with just over a month until the candidate filing deadline for the 2018 primaries.

"Justice is for all. Nobody is above the law," Nelson said in a news release. "Texans can do better than our indicted Attorney General who is charged with criminal fraud."

Susman is one of the top firms in the state for litigation. I do not know Justin (he is in Susman's Ausint office) but that firm is a strong firm

Texas Partisan Redistricting-Court Filing

Here is the e-mail that I received today from one of these attorneys in the Texas Redistricting case.

Friends,

I wanted to make you aware of the filing we made today in the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the Texas Democratic Party, attached. You will note from the brief that Texas voters suffer under one of the worst partisan gerrymanders in the country.

The Supreme Court is currently considering the Whitford v. Gil case from Wisconsin. Based on the oral arguments in that case, which I witnessed, there seems to be a decent chance that the Court will start to reign in this practice which, unfortunately, both parties use to harm voting rights. The filing we made in Texas will allow our state to seek reform of political boundaries in Texas in the event Whitford comes out in our favor.

As always, thank you for your support.

Regards,
Chad Dunn

The court in that case rejected all claims based on partisan gerrymandering and the court ruled that there was cases of racial gerrymandering. This filing is to take advantage of any ruling in the Wisconsin case.
