Well, not really. Bitch was a door-to-door activist. That kind of shit needs to be unacceptable at a societal level. It's fine to drop flyers and shit for the local bake sale, but keep your religions and politics to your fucking selves. I don't want BLM shitbags at my door, and the same goes for pro-this or anti-that fucktards.

The old hag in question also started a fucking violent argument on some one else's property. If someone tells your ass to GTFO off their property, you fucking do that. Karen deserved to get shot.
Eighty-four-year-old Joan Jacobson never imagined she would be shot when she knocked on the door of a Michigan couple’s home, hoping to convince them not to vote for a local pro-abortion ballot proposal.

Sharon Harvey answered the door and quickly became “hostile, belligerent, and antagonistic” when she learned Jacobson’s mission, according to David Kallman, Jacobson’s attorney with the Great Lakes Justice Center.

A social media account that appears to be Harvey’s features content strongly pro-abortion and heavily critical of Republicans. She did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Daily Signal.

In a Thursday phone interview with The Daily Signal, Jacobson insisted that Harvey refused to listen to her, yelling over her, and finally ordering her off the property. The 120-pound woman, who stands at 5 feet tall, said that Harvey followed her down the porch, onto the sidewalk, continuing to yell at her, before her husband Richard Harvey appeared in the yard carrying a .22 caliber rifle.

“When that registered in my mind, I heard a shot, I felt some pain, and I thought he had hit me in the back,” she said. Jacobson learned at the hospital that the bullet allegedly went through her shoulder and out her back, very narrowly missing her spine. “I was just in shock. I said to myself, ‘Did I just get shot? Did he just shoot me?’”

“They didn’t say anything,” she said. “I didn’t say anything. I just headed back to my car and tried to ascertain if I could drive … I didn’t feel lightheaded or like I was going to pass out or anything. I thought, ‘I gotta get out of here.’ I got into the car and they were standing by the sidewalk, I looked through the car window, and I had a thought that went through my mind, I thought, ‘This guy is going to shoot me again through the window of the car!’ He didn’t, and I was able to get the car started, get into gear, get on the road.”
The 84-year-old woman said she drove to a nearby police station, saying that the next thing she knew, she was whisked away in an ambulance to a Grand Rapids hospital. Both Jacobson and her attorney expressed shock to The Daily Signal that the Harveys did not express concern or offer assistance to the wounded woman—though Sharon Harvey was reportedly holding her cellphone in her hand and had threatened to call authorities earlier in the altercation.

Jacobson believes Richard Harvey shot her on purpose.

“I do think that he knew what he was doing,” she said. “I think it was intentional.”

The only time during the altercation that Jacobson believes she raised her voice was when she told Sharon Harvey, “Stop following me,” as she walked away from the house.

The Harveys have spoken to local media outlets about the incident, which Michigan State Police are reportedly looking into. Authorities did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Daily Signal.

The couple disputes Jacobson’s claims and says that 74-year-old Richard Harvey, observing his wife and Jacobson loudly arguing, shot Jacobson accidentally after firing a warning shot into a pine tree in his front yard.

“She [the volunteer] is still ranting and raving and she’s got this clipboard,” he told the local outlet WoodTV. “She’s waving it around. I’m thinking she’s going to smack Sharon with it. So without thinking, I went to club it away with the rifle and my finger was still in the trigger guard. It went off and hit her about in here.”

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
“I do think he should be charged with something,” Jacobson said, sounding a little bewildered. “I don’t think that people should feel like they can’t go and talk to their neighbors without feeling like they’re going to get shot at. Whatever the law says for somebody who intentionally is shooting at somebody. I know a lot of my friends are telling me that they think he meant to kill me. I’m not going to go that far. I don’t know. I just think he wanted to hurt me.”

The pro-life activist shared that she is very politically involved and is a Sentinel for Heritage Action (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation). The incident has made her think twice about her canvassing.

“I’m going to continue to help as much as I can,” she said, adding, “Yeah, I’m reluctant … they do tell you, don’t go alone, go with two. And at this point in time, I’m definitely telling my pro-life friends, take somebody with you and you have a camera, your cellphone with a camera, and that you can take pictures.”

“There was no justification for shooting Ms. Jacobson,” Kallman said in a statement. “Mr. Harvey admitted firing a warning shot, so he knew the gun was loaded when he pointed it at my client. If it was truly an accident, why did neither of the Harvey’s express any remorse or even offer to assist Ms. Jacobson or call 911 immediately after shooting her? The answer is obvious: it was not an accident and Mr. Harvey should be held accountable.”

you didnt even read it, she didnt die, she was actually mid attack when the dude shot her, he even fired a warning shot and the stupid bitch kept attacking his wife.

Judge Aileen Cannon ruled Thursday that former President Trump no longer has to submit a sworn statement about the accuracy of the FBI's inventory on items seized from Mar-a-Lago, as the deadline to do so from the special master loomed.

Why it matters: Cannon sided with Trump's legal team, which objected to special master Raymond Dearie's request he back up his claims, at least until he has had a chance to review the records. Trump has claimed, without evidence, that the FBI planted evidence at the property during the August search.

Driving the news: In the same filing, Cannon, a Trump appointee who sits on the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida, also pushed back the deadline for the completion of the special master's review of the documents from Nov. 30 to Dec. 16.

She ruled that Trump does not have to make claims about which types of executive privilege he wants to assert over which documents on a rolling basis, as Dearie had required.
Instead, he can wait and file "one comprehensive annotated copy" after the midterm elections, indicating whether each document should be covered by attorney-client privilege, attorney work product privilege, executive privilege or is personal record.
How we got here: On Wednesday, Trump's lawyers wrote to Dearie objecting to his request to address whether they disputed the accuracy of the FBI's list of documents.

Trump's lawyers claimed that the demand in Dearie's case management plan "exceeds the grant of authority" given to Dearie.
The bottom line: Cannon's most recent ruling effectively overrules Dearie's challenge for Trump to "put up or shut up" regarding some of the public statements he's made.
this would only matter if the 11th hadn't already overruled her and then bitch smacked her for good measure
the reason she is doing this is because she knows she has now inexorably linked her career to Trump's, by making extremely questionable (read: retarded and legally unsupported) rulings multiple times basically just to protect him from the law.
This will surely be the end of Trump!

Can y’all buy a—damn clue? The long-running television show Wheel of Fortune has recently come under fire for televising a racist puzzle. “Rhyme Time” was the category it was featured under and the answer turned out to be:“EENIE MEENIE MINY MOE CATCH A TIGER BY THE TOE.”

The dark nursery rhyme has racist origins, where the word ‘tiger’ was swapped out for the N-word. It didn’t take long for Twitter users to call out the disturbing episode and implored Wheel of Fortune to do better, according to The Sun.

This is the latest controversy to follow host Pat Sajak. Earlier this month, a photo came to light of him alongside Right Side Broadcasting Network personality Bryan Glenn and Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene.

You do realize journalism for national news no longer exists right? MSM just takes the top 10 twitter trends of the day/ week and turns it into a nightly broadcast.
>You do realize journalism for national news no longer exists right?
Hard disagree. There's plenty of well researched and information coverage out there but reactionaries like 4chan, Facebook and Twitter users don't consume it. Its not a coincidence that everyone has really strong opinions about issues they know close to nothing about.

>MSM just takes the top 10 twitter trends of the day/ week and turns it into a nightly broadcast.
The Root is not a MSM company. They're a glorified social commentary blog.

savage lunatic murdered this beautiful young man at just age 18, and all because he was a Republican. This is sick, disgusting, and we know exactly where the blame lies. Rest in peace, Mr. Ellingson. And may your killer know neither rest nor peace.
OP's a faggot who didn't paste the article so here it is:

A North Dakota law enforcement officer said there was no evidence that the teenager who was fatally mowed down over a “political argument” was a member of a “Republican extremist group,” according to a report.

Shannon Brandt, 41, told police he hit Cayler Ellingson, 18, with his SUV during a street party in the small city of McHenry early Sunday morning and fled the scene because the teen had threatened him. Ellingson was taken to a hospital and later died.

Brandt also claimed to police that Ellingson said he was a member of an unnamed right-wing extremist group.

But North Dakota Highway Patrol Captain Bryan Niewind told Fox News Digital on Thursday that “there is no evidence to support the claim Brandt made” about Ellingson being in any such group.

“This remains an active investigation and as evidence is gathered and reviewed, we will consult with the Foster County State’s Attorney to determine if Brandt’s current charges will remain … or if additional charges will be brought against him,” said Niewind.

After the crash, Brandt reportedly told police he had been drinking and was found to have a blood alcohol level of .08, the legal limit. He was freed on a $50,000 bond after being charged with criminal vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crash involving death, the outlet said.

The Biden administration is curtailing its sweeping student debt relief program for several million Americans whose federal student loans are owned by private companies over concerns the industry would challenge it in court.

The Education Department will no longer allow borrowers with privately held federal student loans to receive loan forgiveness under the administration’s plan, according to guidance updated on the agency’s website Thursday. The administration had previously said that those debt-holders would have a path to receive the administration’s relief of $10,000 or $20,000 per borrower.

Thursday’s policy reversal comes as the Biden administration this week faces its first major legal challenges to the program, which Republicans have railed against as an illegal use of executive power that is too costly for taxpayers.

The federal student loans held by private entities — through a program known as the Federal Family Education Loan program — is a relatively small subset of outstanding federal student loans. It accounts for just several million of the 45 million Americans who owe federal student loans.
Six Republican-led states sued President Joe Biden on Thursday in an effort to block his student loan forgiveness plan from taking effect.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in Missouri by state attorneys general from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska and South Carolina, as well as legal representatives from Iowa.

“In addition to being economically unwise and inherently unfair, the Biden Administration’s Mass Debt Cancellation is another example in a long line of unlawful regulatory actions. No statute permits President Biden to unilaterally relieve millions of individuals from their obligation to pay loans they voluntarily assumed,” Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson’s office said in a news release.

Earlier this week, a public interest lawyer who is also a student loan borrower, sued the Biden administration over the student loan forgiveness plan, arguing that the policy is an abuse of executive power and that it would stick him with a bigger state tax bill.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Good. that little demented shit had no right to be throwing away my stolen tax money so that liberal arts and feminist and tranny studies majors can be lavished with countless safety nets only to find themselves jobless and beg the government again anyways. I shouldn't be pestered any longer and have my hardworking thrown away by the leftist mob.
Debt relief is only a good idea if the UNIVERSITIES PAY FOR IT. Why the fuck would tax payers be giving out refunds for money the universities received?

Pop star Lizzo this week got the opportunity to play a 200-year-old crystal flute that was once owned by President James Madison -- and some conservatives are absolutely furious about it.

On Wednesday, Lizzo visited the Reading Room and flute vault at the Library of Congress's Great Hall, where she got to play multiple flutes archived there, including the aforementioned flute once owned by Madison.

Later that night, Lizzo brought the flute onstage with her at a concert and played it for the audience, while remarking that "history is freaking cool."

While much of the nation found this to be unobjectionable fun, a cadre of right-wing culture warriors immediately took to Twitter to denounce Lizzo playing Madison's flute as a "woke" assault on American history.

"The Library of Congress really took out a 200-year old flute that belonged to James Madison just so Lizzo could twerk with it," fumed right-wing operative Greg Price. "They degrade our history and then call you racist if you actually value it."

"Everyone involved in the decision to allow Lizzo to twerk while playing James Madison’s flute needs to be deported," raged "America First" supporter Andrew McCarthy. "I don’t care if they’re citizens. Deport them somewhere."

Trump-loving author Nick Adams, meanwhile, said that the "Biden Administration is making a mockery of the country" by letting Lizzo play the flute, as he charged that she "isn't talented enough to play music on a $20 Yamaha Plastic Recorder off Amazon."

PARIS/STOCKHOLM/MILAN, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Once unthinkable, mobile phones could go dark around Europe this winter if power cuts or energy rationing knocks out parts of the mobile networks across the region.

Russia's decision to halt gas supplies via Europe's key supply route in the wake of the Ukraine conflict has increased the chances of power shortages. In France, the situation is made worse by several nuclear power plants shutting down for maintenance.

Telecoms industry officials say they fear a severe winter will put Europe's telecoms infrastructure to the test, forcing companies and governments to try to mitigate the impact.

Currently there are not enough back-up systems in many European countries to handle widespread power cuts, four telecoms executives said, raising the prospect of mobile phone outages.

European Union countries, including France, Sweden and Germany, are trying to ensure communications can continue even if power cuts end up exhausting back-up batteries installed on the thousands of cellular antennas spread across their territory.

Europe has nearly half a million telecom towers and most of them have battery backups that last around 30 minutes to run the mobile antennas.

Photos and videos out of a Canadian High School are going viral as they show a male teacher wearing what appears to be large, prosthetic breasts in full view of young students.

Shocking media first began to circulate on Twitter earlier this week, with multiple accounts sharing a mobile phone video and stills of a shop teacher demonstrating how to use a circular saw.

The teacher is seen wearing an extremely prominent prosthetic bust, one which clearly outlines the nipples through his tight shirt. He is also donning a bright blonde wig and short-shorts.

I don't remember my shop teacher looking like this pic.twitter.com/pHHr58Zspa

Multiple photos and videos have surfaced of the same individual instructing young students, and in all of them he is wearing the oversized bust.

The media has been confirmed as originating from Oakville Trafalgar High School in Oakville, Ontario.

The man seen in the photos and videos is a Manufacturing Technology instructor who allegedly began identifying as a woman last year. The teacher now goes by the name Kayla Lemieux.

EXPLAINER: How real are Putin’s nuclear threats in Ukraine?

Russian President Vladimir Putin warns that he won’t hesitate to use nuclear weapons to ward off Ukraine’s attempt to reclaim control of Moscow-occupied areas that the Kremlin is about to annex.

While the West dismisses that as a scare tactic, a top Putin lieutenant upped the ante by boldly saying the U.S. and its NATO allies wouldn’t dare strike Russia, even if it used nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

Italy’s voters head to the polls on Sunday in a snap general election that is likely to see a government led by a far-right party come to power, marking a massive political shift for a country already dealing with ongoing economic and political instability.

Polls prior to Sept. 9 (when a blackout period began) showed a right-wing coalition easily winning a majority of the seats in the slimmed-down lower and upper houses of parliament.

The coalition is led by Giorgia Meloni’s far-right Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy), and includes three other right-leaning parties: Lega, under Matteo Salvini, Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia and a more minor coalition partner, Noi Moderati.

The Brothers of Italy party stands out from the crowd and is expected to gain the largest share of the vote for a single party. It’s been getting almost 25% of the vote, according to poll aggregator Politiche 2022, far ahead of its nearest right-wing ally Lega, which is expected to get around 12% of the vote.

On the center-left, the Democratic Party led by former Prime Minister Enrico Letta is seen gaining around 21% and its coalition partners (the Green and Left Alliance, More Europe and Civic Commitment) are all expected to gain very low single-digit shares of the vote.

The snap election follows the resignation of Prime Minister Mario Draghi in July, after he failed to unite a fractious political coalition behind his economic policies.

Nationalization is not the same as socialization, which generally implies collective ownership of the means of production by the workers themselves rather than the state. The organizational structure of nationalized industries is often not much different from how private industries are typically organized, the main difference being that the state has significant ownership in nationalized enterprises.
If you really want to know how socialist the Nazis were, you can read about how they burned down the offices of trade unions, sent labor leaders to concentration camps, effectively outlawed collective bargaining and strikes, created a state agency to negotiate labor contracts without input from workers, and overall did everything they could to prevent German workers from developing any sort of class conciousness that could threaten the Nazi regime.
>For example critical race theory classes are mandatory in major corporations and government departments where they teach patent nonsense such as "objectivity is white supremacism" and that we must racially discriminate against people, violate their rights and drag them down on the basis of how ethnically "diverse" they are.
>Isn't this ideological indoctrination very similar to fascism?
No, but this certainly reads like how a fascist or someone who sympathizes with fascist views would describe CRT.
>These two things are 99% the same, but it's much worse when the other side does it.
Lol no matter how detailed or nuanced we explain the meaning of language to these conservatives, they just keep on with the willful ignorance of “ no no no fascism means telling people what to do and liberals tell me what I should do so liberals are fascists reeeeeeeeee!”
Those components are not necessarily right-wing.
>If a leftist authoritarian society rejects the notion of economic collectivism then it it is not left wing.
That doesn't mean that it's not leftist authoritarian, they don't need to embrace economic collectivism to be leftist or be against class hierarchy or have collective ownership of private property. To be called communists they would need to embrace those things. They don't have to be communists to be leftist.

The United States has soundly defeated Russia in an election to control a United Nations body responsible for shaping global internet development, a contest viewed as geopolitically symbolic amid wider US-Russia tensions and an answer to fears of growing censorship online by authoritarian regimes.

On Thursday, members of the International Telecommunication Union voted to appoint Doreen Bogdan-Martin, the US-backed candidate, as the group’s secretary general.

Bogdan-Martin, a nearly 30-year veteran of the ITU born in New Jersey, beat out her chief rival Rashid Ismailov by winning 139 votes out of 172. Ismailov won just 25 votes. Bogdan-Martin will be the first woman ever to lead the ITU.

“Humbled & honored to be elected @ITU Secretary-General & grateful for the trust & confidence Member States placed in me,” Bogdan-Martin tweeted on Thursday. “Ready to lead an ITU that will inspire, include & innovate, so that everyone, everywhere can harness the power of #digital to transform their lives.”

US officials had campaigned heavily on Bogdan-Martin’s behalf in the run-up to the vote, in some cases describing it as a turning point for the free and open internet — principles that are increasingly being challenged by Russia and China as those countries clamp down on their citizens’ digital freedoms.

Last week, President Joe Biden urged UN member states to support Bogdan-Martin, arguing her leadership of the ITU will help make the internet “inclusive and accessible for everyone, especially in the developing world.”

The election reflected broader ideological divides over the future of the internet, with the United States and its allies favoring a highly interconnected system governed equally at the international level by UN member states, businesses, civil society groups and technical experts.
A victory for Russia, policy experts had said, would likely have meant the consolidation of power under individual governments to set rules and standards for communications technology ranging from cellphones to satellites, and the internet within their borders.

That potential power shift was previewed in a joint statement Russia and China issued last year calling for the two countries to have more representation at the ITU and underscoring their commitment to “preserving the sovereign right of States to regulate the national segment of the Internet.”

Bogdan-Martin’s wide victory margin is a sign that few support Russia and China’s vision for the internet, said the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a US technology advocacy group.

“Her election by ITU member states shows the international interest in ensuring the technology and the policies that surround it empower individuals rather than become a tool of control for authoritarian regimes,” ITIF said.

Earlier this year, the United States and 55 other countries announced their own commitment to defending digital human rights and the free flow of information online, with a senior US official describing the effort as “a key part of the overall struggle between authoritarian governments and democracies.”

Concerns of an emerging “splinternet” — characterized by a fracturing of the digital world into democratic spaces and anti-democratic ones — were exacerbated this year after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In the war’s early weeks, Russia blocked major Western social media services including Facebook and threatened imprisonment for those who shared information undercutting the Kremlin’s narrative about the conflict.

In response, demand spiked in Russia for tools that could anonymize Russian internet users or help them circumvent government-imposed blockages.
Futeroma predicted a second Internet . We may need a third.

For the past two years Jan Gautam has been filling in sporadically as a housekeeper at hotels in Orlando, Florida, run by Interessant Hotels & Resort Management, or IHRMC.

When he’s not making beds, he’s busy running the company. He’s the President and CEO of IHRMC — which is based in Orlando, Florida.

“I was making beds a couple of days ago. It’s very tough to find employees,” said Gautam.

There are 11.2 million open jobs in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics — up from 10.8 million last year. And there were 1.5 million open hospitality jobs in July. IHRMC says 60% of their 4,500 employees left the company during the pandemic, many to work from home. Now Gautam and other managers are picking up the slack — in housekeeping, the kitchen, and at the front desk.

Which is why some business owners in Florida were perplexed when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent legal asylum seekers from San Antonio, Texas, to Martha’s Vineyard on two flights earlier this month.

“Why are they sending them there when we need the people here. We could utilize them,” said Gautam.

Asylum seekers are legally able to work in the United States while they await their asylum cases. During that waiting period, those seeking asylum can apply for work permits — a process that usually takes 180 days before they are authorized.
