Elizabeth Warren gets standing ovation at Native American conference

From the article:
"Warren received a standing ovation from tribal leaders and other Native attendees as she approached the stage."
And:
Warren "was warmly welcomed at Tuesday’s event. She could barely make it through the crowd of about 150 people as she was trying to leave, with attendees swarming her for photos and hugs by the door."

Newly elected Native American Congressperson Deb Haaland in introducing Warren:
“Indian Country needs strong allies like Elizabeth Warren, whose unwavering commitment to Native communities and Native American women and children is needed in this political era.”

First Native American Congresswomen embrace after swearing in

A beautiful moment between Haaland and Davids. Two Americans who truly appreciate the honor they were given by the voters.

Crazy AZ publisher claims wife poisoned him

This guy used one of his newspapers, the Prescott Daily Courier, to go after his wife while they are going through a nasty divorce. The newspaper ran stories and a vicious ad claiming she poisoned him, wihtout getting her side of the story. Police found no such evidence; instead they did find evidence of meth use when they tested his hair.

As a former journalist it sickens me that the editorial and reporting staff went along with this. Today they did run an AP story giving a fair report on the case. It's behind a pay wall but you can read it from the AP site:

Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters gave the best explanation for drumpf bailing on memorials

"He just didn't feel like it."

Peters absolutley nailed it. It wasn't the rain or anything else. The fat piece of shit coward just didn't feel like it. Doesn't give a shit about heroes who gave their lives or anyone in our current military, just like he doesn't care about anyone but himself.

And can you imagine the uproar if Obama had done this?

Herald reports he is in his 50s

I think we're getting the picture here.

When Dems take back the WH and Congress, just ignore the Supreme Court

Repubs have broken the system, so what are they going to do when Democratic Congresses, President and governors ignore their rulings? Cry about Dems being unfair?
Good article on how Dems could respond to the illegitimate Court we will likely have, or already have. Dems would have to be united and forceful in going down this path, but they would be right in doing so because they would be following the will of the majority of voters.

Stylometry could tell us who the op-ed author is

Assuming the author has some public previous docs out there to work with for comparison. Lots of tools out there to determine authorship and people who know how to use them.

Not that this WH would be smart enough to do it. But I do think we will know sooner rather than later.

Swedish crown jewels: Speedboat thieves steal priceless treasures

Source: BBC

Police in Sweden have launched a manhunt after thieves swiped some of the country's crown jewels from a cathedral and escaped by speedboat.

Two priceless crowns and an orb belonging to a 17th Century king and queen were taken at around midday on Tuesday in Strängnäs, near Stockholm.

Witnesses said they saw two men running from the cathedral, which was open to the public and hosting a lunch fair.

They were seen motoring off into Lake Malaren, and have not been seen since.

Stealing is bad yes, but won't y'all be thinking 'but this was a pretty cool way to do it'?

Radosh: Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez are losing the way home

Many here will remember Michael Harrington, the great socialist thinker who helped inspire the Kennedy-Johnson war on poverty, and a few may remember long time democratic socialist Ronald Radosh. Radosh recently penned a piece about what Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are getting wrong in their campaigns in the heartland and elsewhere, and says Harrington never would have approved of their approach that could help elect repubs.
