Millennial has meltdown when boss corrects her spelling of ‘hamster’

 

Carol Blymire is an adjunct professor of public relations and journalism at Georgetown University. Her Twitter profile describes her as a “communications and public policy executive, branding consultant, professor, writer” and “Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006.

In a series of tweets on July 12, 2019, Blymire recounted a story she overheard of a millennial “in her late 20s” in Washington, DC, getting feedback on something she had written from her boss, who is also female:

Indeed, the “hampster” millennial is far from being unique. About 15 years ago, an undergraduate student demanded to know why I gave his midterm essay exam a B- grade (I actually was being generous). I explained to him that I had difficulty understanding his essay because it was riddled with grammatical and spelling errors. He declared, “I don’t subscribe to the rules of the English language!” and stormed out of the classroom.

That student was one of the impetuses that spurred me to study and write about the psychological-spiritual phenomenon of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a defining attribute of which is the narcissist’s claim that “rules don’t apply me”.

NFL announces Obama supporter Jay-Z will be their “live music entertainment strategist”

 

Videos NSFW.

Yeah, that’s the ticket! This will definitely change my mind about returning to watching the NFL. NOT.

From Yahoo: (The post JAY-Z announces entertainment and social partnership with NFL appeared first on Consequence of Sound.)

Always remember, JAY-Z isn’t a businessman, he’s a business, man. Not long after becoming the world’s first billionaire rapper, he signed up to be the chief brand strategist of cannabis company Caliva. Now the hip-hop mogul has entered into another high-profile partnership — with the NFL.

The New York Times reports that the NFL and Roc Nation have signed a deal that makes JAY-Z the league’s “live music entertainment strategist.” The role will involve JAY-Z and his team consulting on the Super Bowl halftime show as well as other league concert events. That’s heartening news for those of us who have been disappointed in recent lackluster Super Bowl performances from the likes of Maroon 5 and Justin Timberlake.

What’s interesting about the deal, however, is that JAY-Z has been a vocal critic of how the NFL has handled the anthem kneeling protests and Colin Kaepernick’s apparent blackballing. In fact, the buzz in 2017 was that he turned down the halftime gig as an act of solidarity with the former NFL quarterback.

Which is likely why the partnership is far from limited to music programming. Roc Nation will be heavily involved in the league’s key social initiatives. That includes the “Inspire Change” social justice campaign, which makes donations to “groups fighting for criminal justice reform, opportunities in economically challenged areas and better relations between the police and local communities.”

“The NFL has a great platform, and it has to be all-inclusive,” JAY-Z told the Times. “They were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.”

“We don’t want people to come in and necessarily agree with us; we want people to come in and tell us what we can do better,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. “I think that’s a core element of our relationship between the two organizations, and with Jay and I personally.”

An official announcement will be made a press conference tomorrow. We’ll see if Roc Nation can help change the culture of the NFL or lead to more artists being willing to work with the league again.

Real sad: Libtard Sarah Silverman fired from movie for wearing black face

 

Jimmy Kimmel should be next on the left’s firing squad…

From Metro UK: Sarah Silverman was fired from a movie after an old scene of her performing in blackface surfaced.

The comedian has been known to push the envelope in her routines, particularly on The Sarah Silverman Show, but a 2007 episode in which she wore minstrel-like make-up saw her sacked from a movie the night before she was due to film.

The offensive sketch saw Sarah say ‘I look like the beautiful Queen Latifah’ before entering a baptist church and proclaiming: ‘I’m black today.’

Speaking on The Bill Simmons Podcast, the 48-year-old said: ‘I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part, then at 11 p.m. the night before they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode.

I didn’t fight it.’ Sarah added that while she understood the decision, it made her ‘sad’ as she’s not ‘that person’ anymore.

The School Of Rock actress said: ‘They hired someone else who is wonderful but who has never stuck their neck out. It was so disheartening. It just made me real real sad, because I really kind of devoted my life to making it right.

Silverman last year admitted she was ‘horrified’ by the blackface sketch, telling GQ: ‘I don’t stand by the blackface sketch. I’m horrified by it, and I can’t erase it. I can only be changed by it and move on.

‘That was such liberal-bubble stuff, where I actually thought it was dealing with racism by using racism. I don’t get joy in that anymore. It makes me feel yucky. All I can say is that I’m not that person anymore.

While Sarah doesn’t stand by the sketch, she called out ‘cancel culture’ on the podcast, saying it has made comedy a ‘dangerous place’ for those who have made tasteless mistakes in their careers.

She said: ‘I think it’s really scary and it’s a very odd thing that it’s invaded the left primarily and the right will mimic it.

‘It’s like, if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once … everyone is, like, throwing the first stone. It’s so odd. It’s a perversion. … It’s really, “Look how righteous I am and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness”.’

4 of 6 Native Americans who sued to prevent North Dakota from implementing voter ID, have a criminal record

 

North Dakota is the only U.S. state that allows residents to vote without registering, as long as they show a valid piece of identification (ID) at the voting booth.

Despite the state’s generous definition of what constitutes a valid piece of ID, in January 2016, six members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians sued the state, claiming that the ID requirement restricted the ability of tribal members to exercise their right to vote, in violation of the U.S. Constitution, state law, and Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians is a Native American tribe of Ojibwa and Métis peoples, based on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in Belcourt, North Dakota. The tribe has 30,000 enrolled members. A population of 5,815 reside on the main reservation and another 2,516 reside on off-reservation trust land (as of the 2000 census).

The main reservation lies in northern North Dakota and has a land area of 67.583 square miles and a 2016 estimated population of 6,369, an unemployment rate of nearly 50%, a poverty rate of 38%, and a per capita annual income of $12,000. The Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation also has extensive off-reservation trust lands spread across 22 counties in three states: North Dakota, Montana and South Dakota. Including these lands, the reservation’s land area totals 233.036 square miles.

On August 1, 2016, the U.S. District Court for the District of North Dakota – Bismarck granted the plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction, on the grounds that voter ID imposes “excessively burdensome requirements” on Native American voters in North Dakota.

On July 31, 2019, in a 2-1 decision, the 3-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated North Dakota’s voter ID requirement and tossed out the lower district court’s injunction. But the six Native American plaintiffs of the original lawsuit have filed an “emergency” appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to vacate the Circuit Court’s ruling.

See my post of yesterday: “8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstates North Dakota voter ID requirement

The six plaintiffs are Richard Brakebill, Dorothy Herman, Della Merrick, Elvis Norquay, Ray Norquay, Lucille Vivier, who all claim to be Native American residents of North Dakota. To quote their Complaint in the original lawsuit, Brakebill, et al. vs. Alvin Jaeger, in his capacity as the North Dakota Secretary of State:

All of the Plaintiffs named in this Complaint are citizens of the United States, residents of North Dakota, Native Americans, and duly qualified electors eligible to vote in local, state, and federal elections in North Dakota. “The record reveals these Plaintiffs and others were denied the right to vote in November 2014 (even though the poll workers knew them personally and knew they were qualified to vote) because they had invalid ID’s under the new laws.” Doc. 50 at 17.

Under the new law, HB 1369, Plaintiffs likewise would have been disenfranchised or severely burdened despite being duly qualified electors. Therefore, all Plaintiffs have a direct, substantial, and legally protectable interest in the subject matter of this litigation.

Filing a lawsuit and an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court costs money and requires considerable legal knowledge. So who are those six very persistent Native American plaintiffs?

Note that as litigants in a high-profile lawsuit, the six qualify as “public figures”. As stated in Law.com, “Incorrect harmful statements published about a public figure cannot be the basis of a lawsuit for defamation unless there is proof that the writer or publisher intentionally defamed the person with malice (hate).”

(1) Richard Brakebill

According to the Complaint, Brakebill, et al. vs. Alvin Jaeger, of the original lawsuit:

Plaintiff Richard Brakebill is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians and a United States Navy veteran. Mr. Brakebill is over the age of 18 and has lived in Rolla, North Dakota for at least ten years. Mr. Brakebill is therefore a qualified elector in North Dakota. “Plaintiff Richard Brakebill was denied the right to vote in November 2014 because he had an expired driver’s license. When he sought to remedy this problem at a North Dakota Driver’s License Site, he was denied a new form of ID because he did not have a copy of his Arkansas birth certificate.” Doc. 50 at 17. He had a tribal ID without an address and an expired state of North Dakota ID with an old address. Mr. Brakebill lives on a fixed income and currently works a seasonal, inconsistent job, further constraining his ability to secure the documentation necessary to obtain a qualifying ID or supplement his existing ID. “Nevertheless, Mr. Brakebill attempted to vote on election day in 2014 and presented his expired driver’s license and his tribal ID. He was denied a ballot because his license had expired and his tribal ID did not reveal a current residential address.” Id. Mr. Brakebill currently possesses a tribal ID that lists his street address but the ID expires August 2018, three months before the November 2018 election. Mr. Brakebill had to pay $10 for his tribal ID, and will have to pay again next year for an updated tribal ID. Mr. Brakebill recently suffered a house fire and lost most of his possessions and is unsure whether he will be able to obtain another ID prior to the election due to the strain on his financial resources. Mr. Brakebill has also been unable to secure a state ID due to the logistical difficulty of getting to a North Dakota Driver’s License Site (“DLS”). Mr. Brakebill believes he has to travel to the Devil’s Lake DLS to obtain an ID – an approximately 1 hour and 15 minute drive – because the DLS nearest to him in Rolla is open so infrequently that attempting to go there is, practically speaking, impossible. The DLS in Rolla is open the second Wednesday of every month from 10:20 a.m. to 2:35 p.m.

Note that according to the above, Brakebill was born in Arkansas, and is living in and has lived in Rolla, North Dakota for more than ten years. But according to the people search engine Truth Finder, there is no one named Richard Brakebill who lives or has lived in Rolla, North Dakota, but there are two Richard Brakebills in Arkansas, who appear to be father and son:

  1. Richard Gene Brakebill, 56, with this criminal record:
    • DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs) on Nov. 5, 1998, Nov. 20, 2001, and April 28, 2005.
    • Issuing check without sufficient funds on Aug. 21, 2006.
  2. Richard Dwyane Brakebill, 30:
    • In 2009, he was evicted from an apartment in Mountain Home, AR, and had a civil judgment of $1260 filed against him.
    • Driving without insurance on March 12, 2010 (“failure to comply with compulsory driver’s insurance law in Oklahoma”).

(2) Dorothy Herman

There are four Dorothy Hermans in North Dakota:

  • Dorothy Ann Herman, 70, Williston, ND.
  • Dorothy E. Herman, 79, Rolla, ND.
  • Dorothy M. Herman, 83, Grand Forks, ND.
  • Dorothy Herman, 87, Fargo, ND.

Williston is in southern ND; Grand Forks and Fargo are both in eastern ND. Of the four Dorothy Hermans, Dorothy E. Herman of Rolla, ND is most likely the voter ID plaintiff because Rolla is in northern North Dakota as is the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation; Rolla is also the city that Richard Brakebill claims to be his residence.

According to Truth Finder, Dorothy E. Herman, 79, is of modest means. She and her husband (or son) own a 2-bed 1-bath home in Rolla with a 2018 assessed property value of only $43,740. Herman’s Facebook page says she is retired and had “studied” at Turtle Mountain Community College.

(3) Della Merrick

Truth Finder says there is no Della Merrick in North Dakota, and found only two Della Merricks in the U.S. — in Kansas and Ohio. But another people search engine, Spokeo, found a Della Merrick with P. O.  Box addresses in Dunseith and Belcourt, ND, but Spokeo claims she is 100% Caucasian.

(4) Elvis Norquay

Elvis Norquay has an extensive criminal history in Minnesota & North Dakota:

  • DUI and “aggressive” DUI on Dec. 21, 1987, Dec. 29, 1988, Sept. 4, 1990, and Oct. 18, 2006.
  • Driving with an open bottle, and DAR (driving after revocation of license) on Sept. 4, 1990.
  • Fleeing or attempting to elude police, March 1, 1996.
  • Driving w/out liability insurance on April 29, 1997, May 2, 1997, Feb. 17, 2004, and Oct. 18, 2006.
  • Driving with a suspended license on May 2, 1997, Feb. 17, 2004, Oct. 18, 2006.
  • Possession of controlled substance, Sept. 19, 1997

(5) Ray(mond) Norquay

Raymond Norquay, 56, also has a criminal record:

  • Driving with suspended license, July 30, 1995.
  • DUI, March 11, 1997.
  • Driving w/out insurance, Jan. 25, 1997.
  • Convicted and sentenced for rape of an individual less than 13 years of age, Dec. 12, 1998.
  • Convicted and sentenced for theft, March 12, 1999.

(6) Lucille Vivier

Lucille Vivier, 56, was arrested on May 23, 1991 for issuing check without sufficient funds.

In summary, four of the six plaintiffs in the lawsuit to prevent North Dakota from implementing its voter ID law have a record of “petty” crimes. One of the six was convicted and sentenced for rape of a minor. None of the six plaintiffs has a discernible record of higher education or of legal knowledge or training. All of which should raise questions as to whether the six are for-hire plaintiffs.

In their “emergency” appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, the attorney (“Counsel of Record”) of the six applicants/plaintiffs is John Echohawk of the Native American Rights Fund — a Colorado-based non-profit law firm co-founded in 1970 by Echohawk and David Getches to “provide legal representation and technical assistance to Indian tribes, organizations and individuals nationwide.”

David Getches, who died in 1991, was a professor at the University of Colorado Law School. John Echohawk claims Pawnee heritage, had served on Barack Obama‘s first presidential transition team on Indian affairs, and was considered by the Obama administration as a possible nominee to the federal bench. Echohawk’s brother, Larry EchoHawk, was Idaho’s State Attorney General (1991-1995) and Obama’s director of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

According to Charity Navigator, in fiscal year 2018, the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) had $13,265,349 in total revenue, $12,820,425 in total expenses, and $43,878,073 in net assets. In its 2016 IRS Form 990, Echohawk was the highest-paid employee as NARF’s executive director, having received $255,172 in compensation from NARF and “related organizations”.

Teen Vogue teaching teens how to get an abortion without parental consent

 

I came upon this on Twitter last Sunday. A staff writer at National Review tweeted the following:

“Oh, here’s @TeenVogue using its Snapchat account to teach minors how to get an abortion without their parents knowing”

I have no way to verify if this is true since I do not use Snapchat. Yet given Teen Vogue’s history, I believe this to be quite true.

Margaret Sanger would be proud.

See Teen Vogue’s history here:

How to Get an Abortion If You’re a Teen
Of course they are: Teen Vogue is promoting anal sex
Liberalism in a mental disorder: Teen Vogue promotes ecosex with trees & grass
Teen Vogue asks, “Is there something called biological sex?”

Mysterious Discrepancies In Epstein Death Photo

 

Hint: Noses and ears don’t match.

WND: EPSTEIN DEAD OR ALIVE?
BODY PHOTOS RAISE QUESTIONS

‘Nobody trusts anything that the government says, except the left’

By JOE KOVACS

Is Jeffrey Epstein dead or alive?

That’s the question swirling in the wake of the alleged death of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, who was said to be found dead Saturday morning in his federal prison cell in New York.

“I’m tending to think the guy’s not dead,” said talk-radio star Rush Limbaugh on his Monday broadcast. “I’m tending to think they got him out of there.”

Read the WND article: https://www.wnd.com/2019/08/epstein-dead-or-alive-body-photos-raise-questions/?cat_orig=health


The deception may run deeper

As with so many shocking news narratives, the Epstein “suicide” seems to be even more misleading than expected. My first thoughts on the “suicide” were,

  1. An evil man is dead.
  2. It could be “Arkancide.”

But a clever stage magician thrives on the weaknesses of a distracted audience. He is causing them to watch one hand, and not the other. For instance, the mass shooting incident at Las Vegas was very different than reported.

So one clue in this illusion is in comparing the photo of Epstein alive and dead. Check out the ears and nose. Unless the “dead” photo has been photoshopped, the dead man pictured is not Epstein.

This man is not what he’s reported to be. He has always been an agent of mysterious puppeteers. There’s a bigger game being played, and we are not being told what that game is.

President Bolsonaro tells Brazilians to “poop every other day” to help save the environment

 

Um, yeah…that’s a big fat NO THANK YOU. It is NOT healthy to practice this recommendation. What a whack job this guy is.

From Daily Mail: Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro suggested Friday that people ‘poop every other day’ as a way to save the environment, after he came under fire for a surge in deforestation of the Amazon since he came to power.

The far-right leader offered this idea in response to a journalist’s question as to whether it was possible to simultaneously spur economic growth, feed the world’s hungry and also preserve the environment.

‘It’s enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It’s enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world,’ said Bolsonaro, who earlier this month sacked the head of a government agency that had reported a major increase in Amazon deforestation.

Bolsonaro has been criticised for a rapid acceleration in deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, which which covers vast swathes of Brazil and is considered vital to combatting global warming.

According to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), which tracks clear-cutting of the rainforest, around 2,254 square kilometers (870 square miles) of the Amazon were cleared in July, an increase of 278 percent from a year ago.

The rapid rise in deforestation has triggered a global outcry and threatens to create problems for the recent free trade agreement between the South American trade bloc known as Mercosur. The pact includes Brazil and the European Union.

That followed a 90 percent increase in June compared to the year prior – figures that Bolsonaro has called ‘lies,’ and which prompted the sacking of INPE chief Ricardo Galvao on August 2.

The Amazon is vital to the exchange of oxygen for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — a check on global warming.

But Environment Minister Ricardo Salles said the INPE data was published in a way that satisfied “sensationalist interpretations” and was aimed at getting “more donations from foreign NGOs”. Data from INPE, an institution of international repute, showed that overall deforestation has increased 40 percent in the last twelve months compared with the same period a year ago.

Bolsonaro, a combative politician frequently denounced for derogatory remarks about women and minority groups, said the rapid rise in populations around the world needed to be addressed.

“When you see how the world’s population is increasing by 70 million a year, you need a family planning policy,” said the former army officer, declining to use the term “birth control” for fear of an adverse media reaction.

“Don’t make me say that, otherwise (the daily) Folha de S. Paolo will run a headline saying I favor birth control,” he said.

“But you can see that more educated people have fewer children. I’m an exception to that rule, I have five,” he said.

President Bolsonaro: The exception to the rule…

Pure propaganda: Elderly couple found dead from murder-suicide after they couldn’t afford wife’s healthcare

 

First of all, I thought Obamacare was suppose to fix our “broken health care system?”

Even if this man couldn’t afford to pay for his medical expenses, there are PLENTY of low- and no-cost taxpayer- and privately-provided agencies that provide free healthcare services in Whatcom County. See here, here, here and here.

But that little bit of information doesn’t make for a sensational headline…especially when guns are involved.

From Yahoo: A man in Washington state has killed both himself and his wife after raising fears about struggling to pay medical expenses for her ongoing health conditions.

The couple were identified by the Whatcom County Medical Examiner as Brian S Jones, 77, and Patricia Whitney-Jones, 76.

Mr. Jones, who lived near the city of Ferndale, called emergency services on Wednesday morning and said he was going to shoot himself, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office.

He said he had prepared a note for the sheriff which contained information and instructions. In spite of the operator’s efforts to keep him on the line, Mr. Jones is then said to have told the operator, “we will be in the front bedroom”, before disconnecting the call.

Police arrived around 15 minutes later and set up a perimeter around the house and attempted to intervene for about an hour with a crisis negotiator and loud hailer.

But it was too late, as officials then used a robot-mounted camera to look inside the home and found the bodies of the married couple.

Authorities said they believe Mr. Jones shot his wife and then himself. They were found lying together.
A statement from Whatcom Sheriff Bill Elfo said state officials are investigating the incident which is deemed to be a murder-suicide.

According to the sheriff, Mr. Jones told the operator: “I am going to shoot myself”.

Several notes were left in the home “citing severe ongoing medical problems with the wife and expressing concerns that the couple did not have sufficient resources to pay for medical care”, according to the sheriff’s statement.

“It is very tragic that one of our senior citizens would find himself in such desperate circumstances where he felt murder and suicide were the only option. Help is always available with a call to 911,” Mr. Elfo said in the post.

Numerous firearms were seized and two dogs found in the house were taken to an animal shelter.

Sherrie Schulteis, a neighbour of the couple, said she often spoke to Mr. Jones and watched out for each other’s homes but was totally unaware about the extent to which he was struggling mentally and financially.

“[Mr Jones and I] were always waving and talking about our yards or our flowers,” she told The Lynden Tribune. “It’s a little tiny community where we all know each other, but we don’t really know each other.”
