For once, it's not Florida.

>DES MOINES, Iowa – A Kansas man asked an Iowa court to grant his motion for trial by combat, so he can meet his ex-wife and her attorney "on the field of battle where (he) will rend their souls from their corporal bodies."

>David Ostrom, 40, of Paola, Kansas, claims in court documents that his ex-wife, Bridgette Ostrom, 38, "destroyed (him) legally."

>He asked the Iowa District Court in Shelby County to give him 12 weeks' "lead time" to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords, according to the Carroll Times Herald.

>"To this day, trial by combat has never been explicitly banned or restricted as a right in these United States," Ostrom argued in court records, saying it was used "as recently as 1818 in British Court."

>Monday, Ostrom told the Des Moines Register he got the idea after learning about a case in 2016 in which New York Supreme Court Justice Philip Minardo acknowledged that duels had not been abolished.

>Ostrom said the motion stemmed from his frustrations with his ex-wife's attorney, Matthew Hudson.

>"I think I've met Mr. Hudson's absurdity with my own absurdity," he said.

>Military service was once spread fairly evenly — at least geographically — throughout the nation because of the draft. But after the draft ended in 1973, enlistments shifted steadily south of the Mason-Dixon line.

>In Los Angeles, a region defined by liberal politics where many families are suspicious of the military, the Army has struggled to even gain access to high schools.

Racist liberals promote stereotypes to keep lessor races from joining
>“I told him from the educator perspective, we sometimes feel they are targeting our black and brown students and students of poverty,” she said. And therefore they are less likely to push enlistment.

>Recognizing it cannot sustain recruitment numbers by relying only on the South and military communities, the Army has tried to broaden its appeal. Slick ads on social media offer less of the guns-and-grunts messaging of decades past. Instead they play up college benefits and career training in medical and tech fields.
However, those jobs will be dead ends since anti-american liberals prefer to out source IT job to foreign nationals that are basically slaves rather then hire local citizens that they need to pay fair wages.

>Even within one state there are striking differences in how communities view military service. Colorado Springs produced 29 times as many enlistments in 2019 as nearby Boulder, a liberal university town.
One as one child that escaped the liberal cult put it
>“I’d always had an itch to serve in the military and be useful,” she said. “I think it took me being on my own for a while to realize it was a possibility.”
>“The conversation was not ‘What do you want to do after high school?’ but ‘Which college are you going to go to?’”

Maxine Waters is a Retard
>Rep. Maxine Waters thought she was talking to Greta Thunberg. It was actually Russian trolls.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/01/04/rep-maxine-waters-thought-she-was-talking-greta-thunberg-it-was-actually-russian-trolls/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5DpdWE9oKc
The call starts innocently enough: Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) warmly greets the voices on the line, whom a staffer identifies as Greta Thunberg and her father, Svante. They share a laugh about Waters’s nickname, “Auntie Maxine.” The congresswoman praises her young caller for her climate change activism.
“You have made quite a big, big, big, big thunder on this issue. I am really, really very proud of you and the work that you’re doing,” Waters is heard saying.
The congresswoman and her staff thought they had connected with Thunberg, the 17-year-old Swedish climate activist who was recently named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.” In reality, two 30-something Russians, Vladimir “Vovan” Kuznetsov and Alexei “Lexus” Stolyarov, were on the other end of the line. The duo describe themselves as comedians and pranksters, but they are widely suspected of having ties to the Russian government.
Audio from the call with Waters was posted to the pair’s YouTube page on Thursday, along with a cartoon animating the approximately 10-minute interaction as part of their comedy video series called “Stars Save the Earth.”
It’s unclear when exactly the call took place. Waters’s office did not respond to questions seeking details about how the call was arranged or whether her office has screening or security protocols for phone calls.

EXCLUSIVE - THE PENCE BREITBART INTERVIEW
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/01/17/exclusive-pence-says-impeachment-backfiring-on-democrats-the-real-verdict-will-be-in-the-fall-of-2020/
TAMPA, Florida — Vice President Mike Pence told Breitbart News he thinks the rush by the House of Representatives late last year to impeach President Donald Trump, and the upcoming U.S. Senate trial,are backfiring on Democrats politically because of their weak case against the president.

Heading into the Senate trial and asked what he and Trump are looking for from it, Pence laid out how he believes the impeachment case is weak against Trump, and the American people see through it.

“Everywhere I go across this country, the American people see what’s going on here,” Pence said. “For the last three years, Democrats have been trying to overturn the will of the American people in the 2016 election. First it was the Mueller investigation, Russia collusion, then we found out no collusion, no obstruction—case closed. Then we moved on to a controversy over a telephone call. The American people can read the transcript for themselves and see the president did nothing wrong. There was no quid pro quo. The aid was released. And yet Democrats just continued in their headlong rush to impeach the president, and I think the American people see through it. We know the Senate will do its work, and the president will be acquitted.”

Pence then said he thinks there will be serious consequences for the Democrats who pushed this attack on the president, as he believes the American people will resoundingly re-elect President Trump in November, and he hopes Trump will continue to have a GOP Senate majority and a renewed House GOP majority with which to govern.

‘Sanders for President’ Reddit Community Bans CNN for ‘Abandoning Journalistic Integrity’
https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2020/01/18/sanders-for-president-reddit-community-bans-cnn-for-abandoning-journalistic-integrity/
The “Sanders for President” subreddit has banned CNN for abandoning “any journalistic integrity it may have once held” in response to the network’s handling of Tuesday’s Democrat presidential primary debate, where CNN moderators appeared to favor Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

“SandersForPresident will be removing all content from CNN for the foreseeable future,” reads the subreddit announcement. “They have abandoned their journalistic integrity.”

The statement continued:
>CNN has spent the previous four days using all of its media power to try to prevent Senator Sanders from becoming President. All of their top-line stories have been unsubstantiated “hit job” style articles against the senator. This situation came to head last night when CNN hosted a Democratic primary debate. CNN’s debate has been criticized across the entire ideological spectrum of media today because their moderators spent the entire debate asking slanted questions obviously designed to weaken Americans’ confidence in Senator Sanders, the current frontrunner in the first three primary states.
“CNN has forfeited any journalistic integrity it may have once held in the Democratic primary,” affirmed /r/SandersForPresident in its statement. “Its primary goal has become to protect its own profits, which are threatened by a Sanders presidency.”

“It is for these reasons that r/SandersForPresident is indefinitely suspending the hosting of all content produced by CNN,” the statement concluded.
>>
Members of the pro-Trump subreddit, “/r/The_Donald,” chimed in, stating, “Bernie’s subreddit bans content from CNN — ‘CNN has forfeited any journalistic integrity’ — No kidding, we’ve been saying it for years!”

“LOL the Bernie Bruhs think CNN is trash now,” posted another member.

During Tuesday’s debate, after CNN moderator Abby Phillip appeared to re-frame the premise of an argument as a fact in favor of Senator Warren, supporters of Senator Sanders reacted by sharing the hashtag #CNNisTrash, which quickly began trending on Twitter.

>Misogynistic men who identify as part of the "Involuntary Celibate" movement are domestic terrorism threats, according to a new report.

>The Texas Department of Public Safety included the warning in their 2020, "Texas Domestic Terrorism Threat Assessment" (PDF).

>"Although not a new movement, Involuntary Celibates (Incels) are an emerging domestic terrorism threat as current adherents demonstrate marked acts or threats of violence in furtherance of their social grievance," the report noted. "Once viewed as a criminal threat by many law enforcement authorities, Incels are now seen as a growing domestic terrorism concern due to the ideological nature of recent Incel attacks internationally, nationwide, and in Texas."

>"What begins as a personal grievance due to perceived rejection by women may morph into allegiance to, and attempts to further, an Incel Rebellion. The result has thrust the Incel movement into the realm of domestic terrorism," the report explained.

>"The violence demonstrated by Incels in the past decade, coupled with extremely violent online rhetoric, suggests this particular threat could soon match, or potentially eclipse, the level of lethalness demonstrated by other domestic terrorism types," the report warned.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/16/politics/service-members-injured-iran-strike/index.html

>Several US service members were injured during last week's Iranian missile attack on Al-Asad airbase in Iraq despite the Pentagon initially saying that no casualties were suffered.

"While no U.S. service members were killed in the Jan. 8 Iranian attack on Al Asad Air base, several were treated for concussion symptoms from the blast and are still being assessed," the US-led military coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria said in a statement Thursday.

"Out of an abundance of caution, service members were transported from Al Asad Air Base, Iraq to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany for follow-on screening. When deemed fit for duty, the service members are expected to return to Iraq following screening," the statement added.

Concussions are not always apparent immediately after they've been suffered, but the disclosure indicates that the impact of the attack was more serious than initial assessments indicated. The attack, launched in retaliation for the US airstrikes that had killed Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, significantly ratcheted up tensions between Iran and the US, though the prospect of further military confrontation appears to have abated for now.

A US military official told CNN that 11 service members had been injured in the attack, which was first reported by Defense One. Following the attack, the Pentagon had initially said that no casualties had resulted from the 16 missiles fired by Iran. The US military defines a casualty as either an injury or fatality involving personnel.

Trump let Iran dance all across his red line and then did nothing. It shows how weak he is.

An Indian village has been terrorised by marauding troops of monkeys as residents flee the area.

An out-of-control population of over 400 monkeys have taken over homes as desperate locals fight a losing battle against the primates in a Planet of the Apes-style saga.

Around 20 families, sick of being assaulted and having their fields and homes raided by the opportunist macaques, have fled the village.

The problems started over 15 years ago when a troop of monkeys were kicked out of the neighbouring city of Hyderabad by poachers and abandoned nearby.

One man determined to put up a fight is the village chief Srivarama Krishna, who said: “Initially, no one cared about it but then they started multiplying until it became too much."

Krishna won the local election in 2019 to be chief after saying he was determined to resolving monkey conflict.

He said: “Our lands are fertile and we grow vegetables and fruits, the monkeys took a liking to the fruits the farmers grow. Now they have started destroying the crops."

Many farmers have already fled and if the problem continues life in the rural village will not be sustainable.

The Florida Man arrested for using a front-end loader to dump a bucket of dirt on his girlfriend’s car has escaped with a judicial slap on the wrist, according to court records.

Hunter Mills, who was scheduled for a January 6 trial for felony criminal mischief, recently struck a plea deal that resulted in a deferred prosecution agreement and his placement in a pretrial diversion program.

If Mills, 20, successfully completes the program--which is afforded to some first-time offenders--the criminal charge will likely be dismissed. Most diversion programs last 12 months.

Mills was arrested in August after he covered a 2010 Cadillac driven by his girlfriend in dirt. The woman had driven to meet Mills on a road adjacent to the headquarters of an excavation firm that sells top soil and landscaping materials. The dumping site was in Crestview, a city about 50 miles from Pensacola.

According to an arrest report, when Mills’s girlfriend “refused to answer a question,” Mills--who arrived at the meeting site in a front-end loader--“dumped the dirt on the driver side half of the vehicle, causing scratches to the top, hood, and trunk. The window was down during the incident, which caused dirt to fill up the air vents, center console, and power windows.”

The car’s owner estimated that his ride suffered $8000 in damages.

When questioned by police, Mills admitted covering the car in dirt, but “stated that he did this in an attempt to get [the woman] to leave him alone.”

JANUARY 16--A man wearing a pair of self-balancing hover skates recently rolled into a Walmart, filled up his cart, and then glided out of the Florida store without paying for the merchandise, police say.

In a bid to identify the “futuristic thief,” cops in Winter Haven have released surveillance video showing him zipping into and around the store on January 8.

According to a Winter Haven Police Department report, the suspect made off with $551.08 worth of merchandise, including paint, a trash can, a vehicle battery, a bouquet of flowers, a Roku TV, and a Motokicks hoverboard.

A cop noted that the perp used a "hover board to push the shopping cart through the store by standing on it and hovering while selecting items."

The thief, who has a large tattoo on his forearm, drove away from Walmart in a late-90s Nissan Maxima sedan with "two different sets of aftermarket chrome wheels, and slight hood damage."

The suspect appears to be wearing a pair of Voyager brand Space Shoes. The shoes, which cost about $200, use self-balancing technology and are the “next generation of E-mobility, with two skates that are independent of each other,” according to the manufacturer.

The Space Shoes have a maximum speed of 6.2 MPH and a range of five miles before they need recharging. The shoes, each of which weighs six pounds, include “fun, bright” LED lights (as seen on the Walmart footage).

Protesters gathered in front of the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, this Friday evening while Emmanuel Macron was there to attend a show, BFMTV learned.

"The President discreetly attended a performance at the Bouffes du Nord with his wife," confirmed the entourage of the Head of State to BFMTV. And to assure: "The President will continue to go to the theater with his wife as he usually does. He will continue to protect the freedom of expression and creation of artists threatened by political violence."

Dozens of protesters

According to our information, an extreme left activist and independent journalist posted a photo on social networks locating the head of state. Following this publication, several calls were made to meet in front of the theater.

According to witnesses on the spot, dozens of people gathered in front of the theater around 10 p.m. shouting slogans to protest against the pension reform.

Fivethirtyeight.com announces that Trump is far less popular than the widely trusted fivethirtyeight.com weighted polling averages suggest
https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/trump-may-be-even-more-unpopular-than-his-approval-rating-shows/

Polls have consistently shown that President Trump is pretty unpopular, with only about 42 percent of the American public approving of the job he is doing as president. These numbers are much lower than what one might expect given the bustling economy.

But does the standard presidential approval question actually capture what voters think of Trump’s job performance? There are several reasons it might not tell the full story. For one, in this hyper-partisan era, presidential approval numbers have become increasingly polarized and don’t move around all that much, so they may now say more about which “side” people are on (pro-Trump or anti-Trump, Republican or Democrat) than voters’ actual evaluation of how the president is doing.

So we (Enns and Schuldt) have worked to develop a hopefully more nuanced approach to measuring presidential approval, where we ask respondents how favorably they feel toward Trump relative to other notable Republicans. By not explicitly asking respondents whether they approve or disapprove of the president, we avoid forcing respondents to take sides, as they do in the standard presidential approval question.
