Breaking on NBC.
Edit: first article:
For those who enjoy just a bit more schadenfreude with their morning coffee, Candace Owens just got partially demonetized by YouTube for her anti-trans videos. YouTube had previously said that misgendering did not violate its community guidelines, but it has now changed its tune.
YouTube does not publicly list any policy on misgendering but said in a statement that it considers deliberate misgendering as potentially violative of its monetization policy on hateful conduct.
On the Candace Owens Podcast channel Monday, Owens said YouTube gave her an option to delete every video that Ive ever done pertaining to gender in which I have accurately gendered someone referring to instances in which shes used pronouns not preferred by trans individuals. Videos in which Owens misgendered individuals were considered hateful conduct by YouTube, according to Owens in a segment in the episode titled I Have An Announcement To Make.
A former Guantanamo prisoner has fingered DeSantis as having watched his torture while DeSantis was stationed there for a year as a member of Navy JAG. His supervisor noted that DeSantis' duties required interacting with detainees and hearing their complaints and resolving them in accordance with US law. DeSantis enlisted in the Navy in 2004 specifically because he wanted to take part in Guantanamo prosecutions.
Mr DeSantis was stationed on the base between March 2006 and January 2007, according to his military records.
An investigation by The Independent details the following claims:
Two prisoners held at the camp at the time Mr DeSantis was stationed there claim he witnessed the forced-feeding of hunger-striking prisoners.
Mr Adayfi claims that Mr DeSantis had initially told him he was there for the detainees welfare.
Mr DeSantis was stationed at Guantanamo during a year marked by riots, hunger strikes and death.
Part of his role was to field concerns and complaints from prisoners.
Mr DeSantis emerged from his time at Guantanamo as an advocate for its continued use, and against the release of detainees.
We tend to have a lot of trick or treaters compared to a lot of places these days. They tend to come in two waves, the white suburbanites for whom their own exurb/suburb feels too scary so they pack the kids into a minivan and take them into our rural neighborhood, and later on the local kids, mostly Latinx. This year I decided to find out if the lure of candy would trump naziism, so I added a Vote Blue sign on the fence right next to the front walk. Yes indeed, there were some screeching tires as the local cosplaytriots hugged their kids close and took them to a less terrifying part of town. In all, were down 50% or more from usual.
Conservative asshurt is my love language.
A friends righteous rant sparked this as a point of organizing resistance:
Revoke (or do not sign) organ donor cards, and instruct next of kin/medical POAs to not donate your organs after death.
(I hear the cries of knee-jerk outrage already.) Look, its simple. Women are going to die because of these abortion bans. Do not let their organs be harvested to save their murderers. Women will suffer, become disabled, lose their livelihoods, lose their opportunities for education or a career, or die because abortions are denied them, when they are unable to access abortion care hundreds of miles away. Ok, then, I guess organ transplantation should require medical tourism as well.
Nothing in this scheme says that a person should not live-donate a kidney, etc. to a person they know and trust. It just means that women and their allies are drying up the flow of organs to strangers who may be their oppressors. It means that women and their allies are taking back control over their bodies. Will people die? Yes. Thats the point. What, did you think this war wasnt going to have casualties? Besides the piled corpses of pregnant women? Decisions have consequences, and it is time for women to be fighting back ruthlessly.
After all, nobody is interested in even ending the filibuster for us, or expanding SCOTUS for us. Why, exactly, should we continue business as usual?
I have been receiving spam from them. Are they for real? If so, they are the slimiest, worst-managed Dem PAC that I have ever encountered.
1) Emails read like clickbait that 17 year olds wrote for InfoWars.
2) You can't opt out.
3) Their contact email doesn't work - it bounces.
4) There is virtually no useful information on their website that would help determine whether this is a travesty of a Dem PAC, or right wing trolls.

1. May you wait in line outside the only open grocery store for four hours only to find that there is no food left, save a Pop-Tart that slipped under some shelving. May the Pop-Tart be the weird cherry flavor. May you buy it, cut it into quadrants, and eat it over two days.
3. May you record yourself making a snow angel for the first time in your life only to realize that youre lying on your neighbors dogs frozen deposits. Forrest Wilder
4. May snow slip off an overhang as you pass underneath it, nailing you right on your noggin while youre heading outside to pee.
5. May you make direct eye contact with your neighbor during your yard pee.

So now there's a mystery disease in India, with 300 people hospitalized. Headaches, seizures, nausea, passing out - fabulous. Might be the water, but they can't find any contaminants. They don't *think* it's a virus...
How much judgment does it take to avoid stupid opportunities to humiliate yourself (and your client)?
Imagine youre Rudy Giuliani. Youre prattling along, giving a press conference, and you spot a way to reference one of your favorite movies to make your legal case BAM! Twitter rips you to shreds.
That was the crux of a truly bizarre press conference that President Trumps personal attorney gave on Thursday, which CNN, MSNBC and Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto declined to air. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, was arguing that Trump campaign reps were not allowed close enough to properly observe ballot counting in Pennsylvania for the presidential election, which Trump and his team have refused to concede despite the Associated Press and other major news outlets naming Democratic challenger Joe Biden the winner two weeks ago.
Giuliani decided to re-enact a scene from the 1992 comedy My Cousin Vinny, which starred Joe Pesci (no relation to the author of this article) and won Marisa Tomei an Oscar, to call out just how far away the Trump representatives were from the ballot counters.
And the New York Daily News, one of Giulianis hometown newspapers, ran an op-ed by one of Giulianis former speechwriters on Thursday that called him pathetic and lamented his dive into the deep end of a fetid pool of manufactured election conspiracy theories.
The presser got even stranger as a black stream of what appeared to be hair dye began rolling down Giulianis face as he sweat at the podium...
What song(s) do you want to blast when this is all over, and you have a big drink and party?
