Philadelphia’s new DA vows to “trade jails for school”

Didn’t criminals already have a chance at school?

According to Wikipedia: Philadelphia consistently ranks above the national average in terms of crime, especially violent offenses.It has the highest violent crime rate of the ten American cities with a population greater than 1 million residents, as well as the highest poverty rate among these cities. It has been included in real estate analytics company NeighborhoodScout’s “Top 100 Most Dangerous Cities in America” list every year since it has been compiled.

And from the Philadelphia Police, the city ended the 2017 with 315 homicides.

From HuffPo: In an emotional swearing-in speech Tuesday, Larry Krasner, Philadelphia’s new district attorney, promised to transform the city’s criminal justice system, fight inequality and lower the high incarceration rate.

“Today, we start the long road towards trading jails and trading death row for schools,” Krasner said. “Today, we trade fear for sanctuary.”

A civil rights defense attorney with a history of suing the Philadelphia Police Department, Krasner was elected as the city’s top prosecutor in November, defeating Republican opponent Beth Grossman.

Krasner, who has been applauded by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and other progressives for his calls for reform and strong stance against capital punishment, said Tuesday that everyone deserves protection, support and a second chance. He spoke of human potential being lost due to incarceration, and of how the current system impacts residents across the city — from the police officer to the young student to the mother of a heroin addict.

“Today we start the long road towards trading division between police and the communities they serve for unity and reconciliation and cooperation, all of which make us safer,” he said.

Along with not pursuing death sentences, Krasner has said he will end the city’s use of cash bail and its controversial “stop and frisk” policy.

Krasner said the election was not about him as a person, but “a movement for criminal justice reform” that is sweeping the nation. His duty as a “technician” of that movement, he said, is “to seek justice in society.”

“That requires us to communicate the truth, to represent the public and to exercise power with restraint, with our roots dug deep in the rich soil of equality,” he said. “That’s what we need to do.”

Krasner replaces Kelley Hodge, who has been serving as acting district attorney since July, when she replaced Seth Williams(demorat). Williams announced in February that he would not seek a third term and was later indicted on 29 federal fraud charges involving campaign funds and other financial disclosures. He pleaded guilty to a bribery charge and was sentenced in October to five years in prison.

#NeverTrumper Senator Jeff Flake won’t rule out 2020 run against Trump

Go for it you RINO. And keep trashing us republican voters. Sounds like a winning strategy to get Trump re-elected!

From NY Post: WASHINGTON – Retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake​ on Sunday wouldn’t​ rule out a 2020 run against President Trump, saying the commander-in-chief is “inviting” a challenger with his politics of division and narrow appeal to a diminishing base of older, white men.

“I don’t rule anything out, but it’s not in my plans,” Flake​, a Republican,​ told ABC’s “This Week.”

“But I do believe if the president is running for reelection, if he continues on the path that he’s on, that that’s going to leave a huge swath of voters looking for something else.”

Flake said he expects Trump could have challengers from multiple sides: Democrat, independent and even from his own Republican Party. “I think he’s inviting that,” Flake said.

Flake has often clashed with Trump over his incendiary tweets, immigration policies and endorsements.

He most recently wrote a campaign contribution check to Alabama Democrat Doug Jones after Trump backed accused child molester Roy Moore for ​the ​Senate.

Flake said he worries the GOP und​er ​Trump represents “spasms of a dying party.”

“By and large, we’re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy,” Flake said.

Facing a tough reelection in Arizona and public rebukes from Trump, Flake announced his retirement in a stunning Senate floor speech Oct. 24 that was viewed as a condemnation of Trump’s leadership. “I will not be complicit,” he said.

If Democrats nominate someone like far-left Sens. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders in 2020 to challenge Trump, Americans likely will be looking for third option, Flake said. “That leaves a huge swath of voters in the middle, that may be looking for something else,” he said.

Unfunny comedienne Sarah Silverman is scared of the American flag

During a monologue on her Hulu political variety show on Dec. 7, 2017, Sarah Silverman, 47, recalled her reaction many years ago when her first boy friend hoisted an American flag in the front yard of his home.

Silverman said:

“I had a boyfriend many years ago, he was my first boyfriend who had his own house, and one day I went outside to see what he was doing, and he was hoisting an American flag up the flagpole in his front yard. And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt this feeling of like, um, I felt scared. Yeah, I felt scared. And so I was, like, ‘What are you doing?’ And he said, ‘Raising the flag,’ and I was, like, ‘Why?’ And he’s, like, ‘Um, because I love America?’ And I was like, ‘Right, right, of course,’ but inside I was shaken. “

Silverman said she then “calmly” walked to her car, got inside, and called her sister Susie, who’s a rabbi in Israel to try to understand why she was “freaking out” about her boyfriend’s American flag.

Susie explained that “nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us.”

While the video above ends in Susie’s “explanation” of why flags are “terrifying” for Jews, The Washington Times tells us that Silverman went on to criticize President Trump’s “nationalist” slogans like “Make America Great Again” and “America First” for “exploiting” patriotism and for blindly crowing that America is “No. 1”. Silverman said she fears Trump’s “‘We’re No. 1’ nationalism is really like an old bed buddy of racism and xenophobia.” That’s why she can’t “get behind the flag” because saying America is No. 1 is just “tacky”.

Born in Bedford, New Hampshire to Jewish parents, Sarah Silverman endorsed Bernie Sanders for President but then spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in support of Hillary Clinton and urged other Bernie supporters to do likewise.

In 2005, Silverman made a comedy concert film called “Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic,” in which she holds a microphone to her mouth, crotch and butt as she sings a rendition of the Christian hymn Amazing Grace from her orifices in three part harmony. She also makes jokes about baby-killing, masturbation, rape, anal sex, 9/11, AIDS, and the Holocaust.

So Silverman uses the Holocaust as comedy material, but the American flag is “terrifying” because it reminds Jews of the Holocaust. Betcha Sarah Silverman doesn’t think the Israeli flag and Israeli nationalism are terrifying or tacky.

Sarah Silverman is a psychopath

Hanoi Jane praises Colin Kaepernick: “Keep kneeling until you can’t stand up!”

One would expect this praise from the anti-American womyn.

From Hollywood Reporter: The ACLU of Southern California’s annual Bill of Rights awards gala Sunday evening was a star-studded affair with honorees such as Viola Davis, Gina Rodriguez, Jane Fonda and Judd Apatow, but it was Colin Kaepernick who received the loudest applause.

The NFL star took home the Eason Monroe Courageous Courage Award.

“He’s been viciously and unfairly criticized,” said ACLU Southern California’s executive director Hector Villagra. “He’s been called a traitor because too many people in this country confuse dissent for disloyalty. He took a stand knowing some would threaten him and he has had his life threatened which is why that we are profoundly honored to have him here [and] we didn’t publicize his presence tonight.”

When Kaepernick hit the stage, the audience jumped to its feet. “We must confront systematic oppression as a doctor would a disease. You identify it, you call it out, you treat and you defeat it. We all have an obligation no matter the risk and regardless of reward to stand up for fell men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human rights cannot be compromised. In the words of Frederick Douglas, ‘If there is a no struggle, there is no progress.'”

Kaepernick received a second standing ovation before Billy Eichner came on stage to present a Bill of Rights Award to Judd Apatow. “I have to follow Colin Kaerpernick?!” Eichner joked. “I didn’t even wear the ACLU ribbon at the Emmys because it didn’t match my tuxedo, which I feel terrible about now, by the way.”

Judd delivered more of a politically charged standup act than an acceptance speech, which included his hope that the alleged “pee tape” of President Donald Trump would be released.

“But if there is a pee tape then who becomes president? Mike Pence,” Apatow said. “Then we need another pee tape, maybe of Trump sitting next to Mike Pence. So, we need another pee tape because then who becomes the president? Paul Ryan… We basically need a tape of a Russian hooker urinating like a firehose on like 40 Republicans until we finally get Bernie Sanders.

Hypocrite: Miley Cyrus gets new tattoo that says, “Be Kind”

Cyrus’ new motto…unless you disagree with her

From the Hillary Clinton-loving womyn who has said/done the following “kind” things:

Flaming hypocrite.

From Daily Mail: Miley Cyrus added to her extensive collection of tattoos on Saturday.

The singer posted an Instagram story showing a pair of new inkings — one on the back of each wrist, which spelled out the mantra: BE KIND.

She used the artwork to spell out a longer message: ‘Never forget to… BE KIND To All!

After undergoing the needle in her own bedroom, she then returned the favor on the artist. The Wrecking Ball star has more than 30 tattoos spread over her body.

She also used Instagram to show off the birthday present fiancé Liam Hemsworth gifted her for her 25th birthday: a rainbow necklace.

The ‘Malibu’ hitmaker is celebrated her special day on Thursday, and has took to Instagram to brand Liam as ‘winning’ after he bought her a necklace featuring the word ‘Lili’ – which is Miley’s nickname for her ‘Hunger Games’ star beau – engraved with rainbow coloured gems.
