Military officials said they are looking into what appeared to be white supremacist hand signs


Military officials said they are looking into what appeared to be white supremacist hand signs made by students before the Army-Navy football game on Saturday.

Pregame festivities aired by ESPN showed cadets on both sides of the rivalry — two West Point cadets and one Naval Academy midshipman — making gestures as a camera focused on a sideline report from journalist Rece Davis.

At least one of the gestures resembled a white supremacist symbol described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as "the thumb and forefinger joined together in a circle, the remaining three fingers splayed out behind."

"West Point is looking into it and we do not know the intent of the cadets," said Lt. Col. Christopher Ophardt, director of public affairs, in an email.

Just a funny...MF45 bald look....


Since the media hold women to standards on "how they look", I figure it's fair game with the orange one.

'We should hang' Ilhan Omar, Florida congressional candidate writes in fundraising letter


A fundraising letter sent last week by the campaign of George Buck, a Republican running for Congress in St. Petersburg, suggested a member of the House of Representatives and other Democrats should be executed.

The lengthy email dated Nov. 26 repeated an unsupported accusation that U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somali-born Democrat representing Minnesota, secretly works for the country of Qatar and should be gravely punished for it.

Like Stella, Buck referenced an unverified story that Omar is an asset of Qatar who passed information to Iran. Omar has denied the report, which was circulated by the Jerusalem Post but has not been corroborated by American news outlets or the U.S. government. The positions and statements of Omar, who is Muslim and often speaks critically of Israel, are frequently chronicled by the newspaper.

Buck describes himself as a “Conservative, America-First Republican” and a veteran on his campaign page. He is one of six Republicans in Pinellas County running to challenge Crist for Florida’s 13th Congressional District. Buck was the GOP nominee in 2018, but lost decisively to Crist, a St. Petersburg Democrat and former governor, in the general election.

Florida man's best friend!!!


A Florida dog put a car into reverse and drove it in circles for nearly an hour

Anne Sabol's cul-de-sac in Port St. Lucie, Florida, is fairly quiet.

Well, it was, until a dog hopped in its owner's running car, kicked it in reverse, drove in circles for an hour and smashed a neighbor's mailbox before safely exiting the vehicle without so much as a scratch.

Who's drivin' that car? A black Labrador Retriever, either terribly frightened or joyfully free.

As for the pup, it's impossible to know its thoughts behind the wheel. Did it jump at the chance for a joyride and a fleeting taste of freedom? Or was this all a harrowing accident as the dog felt all control slip through its paws?

Who went to jail for Watergate....


Final legal actions and effect on the law profession[edit]
Charles Colson pled guilty to charges concerning the Daniel Ellsberg case; in exchange, the indictment against him for covering up the activities of the Committee to Re-elect the President was dropped, as it was against Strachan. The remaining five members of the Watergate Seven indicted in March went on trial in October 1974. On January 1, 1975, all but Parkinson were found guilty. In 1976, the U.S. Court of Appeals ordered a new trial for Mardian; subsequently, all charges against him were dropped.
Haldeman, Ehrlichman, and Mitchell exhausted their appeals in 1977. Ehrlichman entered prison in 1976, followed by the other two in 1977. Since Nixon and many senior officials involved in Watergate were lawyers, the scandal severely tarnished the public image of the legal profession.[98][99][100]
The Watergate scandal resulted in 69 government officials being charged and 48 being found guilty, including:[14]
John N. Mitchell, Attorney General of the United States who resigned to become Director of Committee to Re-elect the President, convicted of perjury about his involvement in the Watergate break-in. Served 19 months of a one- to four-year sentence.[23]
Richard Kleindienst, Attorney General, convicted of "refusing to answer questions" (contempt of court); given one month in jail.[101]
Jeb Stuart Magruder, Deputy Director of Committee to Re-elect the President,[26] pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to the burglary, and was sentenced to 10 months to four years in prison, of which he served seven months before being paroled.[102]
Frederick C. LaRue, Advisor to John Mitchell, convicted of obstruction of justice. He served four and a half months.[102]
H. R. Haldeman, Chief of Staff for Nixon, convicted of conspiracy to the burglary, obstruction of justice, and perjury. Served 18 months in prison.[103]
John Ehrlichman, Counsel to Nixon, convicted of conspiracy to the burglary, obstruction of justice, and perjury. Served 18 months in prison.[104]
Egil Krogh, aide to John Ehrlichman, sentenced to six months for his part in the Daniel Ellsberg case.[102]
John W. Dean III, counsel to Nixon, convicted of obstruction of justice, later reduced to felony offenses and sentenced to time already served, which totaled four months.[102]
Dwight L. Chapin, deputy assistant to Nixon, convicted of perjury.[102]
Maurice Stans, United States Secretary of Commerce who resigned to become Finance Chairman of Committee to Re-elect the President, convicted of multiple counts of illegal campaigning, fined $5,000 (in 1975 – $23,300 today).[105]
Herbert W. Kalmbach, personal attorney to Nixon, convicted of illegal campaigning. Served 191 days in prison and fined $10,000 (in 1974 – $50,800 today).[102]
Charles W. Colson, special counsel to Nixon, convicted of obstruction of justice. Served seven months in Federal Maxwell Prison.[101]
Herbert L. Porter, aide to the Committee to Re-elect the President. Convicted of perjury.[102]
G. Gordon Liddy, Special Investigations Group, convicted of masterminding the burglary, original sentence of up to 20 years in prison.[102][106] Served ​4 1⁄2 years in federal prison.[107]
E. Howard Hunt, security consultant, convicted of masterminding and overseeing the burglary, original sentence of up to 35 years in prison.[102][106] Served 33 months in prison.[108]
James W. McCord Jr., convicted of six charges of burglary, conspiracy and wiretapping.[102] Served two months in prison.[107]
Virgilio Gonzalez, convicted of burglary, original sentence of up to 40 years in prison.[102][106] Served 13 months in prison.[107]
Bernard Barker, convicted of burglary, original sentence of up to 40 years in prison.[102][106] Served 18 months in prison.[109]
Eugenio Martínez, convicted of burglary, original sentence of up to 40 years in prison.[102][106] Served 15 months in prison.[110]
Frank Sturgis, convicted of burglary, original sentence of up to 40 years in prison.[102][106] Served 10 months in prison.[110]

Is this a CT? I don't know the source so I'm posting in the Lounge...


Report: Turkey Allegedly Used Blackmail To Coerce Trump’s Abandonment Of Kurds

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan allegedly intercepted a phone call between White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and then used the call to blackmail President Donald Trump.

The Spectator, a British publication, reported on Sunday that a source familiar with the House impeachment inquiry say at least one whistleblower has come forward claiming that Kushner spoke with MBS regarding Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, greenlighting the journalist’s arrest.

But the source said there is more: Turkey obtained an intercept of Kushner’s phone call and subsequently used it to persuade Trump to pull U.S. troops out of northern Syria.

Erdogan was looking to launch a long-planned offensive against American-allied Kurds in the region, and Trump effectively gave the Turkish leader his blessing by withdrawing U.S. troops last month, after speaking with him on the phone.

On FB, so we all know it must be true...

As seen on Rachael tonight, the theme for the NBC Watergate coverage: March to the Scaffolds

Woman steals golf cart from Florida hospital, takes it on I-95 joyride


MIAMI (WFLA) – A woman in a hospital gown created somewhat of a spectacle on Interstate 95 after she stole a golf cart and took it on a joyride.

NBC Miami obtained a cell phone video that shows the unidentified woman weaving in and out of traffic.

Police said the golf cart was stolen from a University of Miami hospital.

The woman was eventually taken into custody under Florida’s Baker Act, the news station reported.

It's really hard to tell if this is unusual on Florida highways. Now that winter has arrived, all the snowbirds have moved South and drive slow in the left lane anyway. If you are over 70 it's mandatory to have a golf cart or they won't let you vote (at least that's the rumor).

Why?? Naked Florida man steals American flag from yacht

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (WPTV/CNN) - A naked Florida man is accused of taking an American flag off a yacht, but only after he put on a little show for crew members.
Capt. Joe Reardon, the owner of Delray Yacht Cruises, said the suspect is “certainly not shy.” As surveillance video shows, he’s also extremely comfortable in his own skin.
Reardon got an eyeful after a crew member first noticed Friday morning their American flag and a wooden pole were missing.
The crew checked the security camera. Now pictures of the naked man running through the Lady Atlantic and Lady Delray are all over social media, shared hundreds of times just from their page.


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis first lied, then tried to downplay his relationship to the two men....

The scandal first surfaced when the public learned that Rudy Giuliani associates Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas — who were indicted (and pleaded not guilty) for allegedly circumventing federal campaign finance laws to funnel foreign and dark money to political candidates in exchange for influence — had contributed $50,000 to DeSantis’s campaign last year and more than $20,000 to Republican Sen. Rick Scott.

But that was soon called into question, when a few days later, 2018 footage surfaced showing DeSantis hugging both Fruman and Parnas amid a sea of onlookers and cameras.

Shortly after, it was revealed that Parnas accompanied DeSantis on a string of events in the closing moments of the 2018 gubernatorial campaign season. The Virginia attorney representing Parnas said, “if he was in the pictures,” then Parnas likely flew with DeSantis on his campaign plane.

After all, this recent fiasco follows a scandal in which the Tampa Bay Times revealed documents outlining what basically constitutes a menu of different options special interests can pay to receive face time with DeSantis.


They cheated...they should resign!
