NY Post reports that Hunter Biden suspected of smoking crack in DC strip club last year

Ruh roh. That Burisma money was put to good use, obviously.

From NY Post: Hunter Biden was suspected of smoking crack inside a strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits — at the same time he held a seat on the board of a controversial Ukrainian natural-gas company, The Post has learned.

The incident, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, DC, late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Biden, 49, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction that included a crack binge in 2016.

Workers at Archibald’s, located about three blocks north of the White House, said Biden was a regular there, with two bartenders and a security worker all instantly recognizing his photo and one worker identifying him by name.

Security worker Ranko Petrovic said Biden — the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic front-runner to challenge President Trump next year — would routinely hole up in a VIP room and drink during his visits.

Although Petrovic said the club “had no issue with him,” former Archibald’s managing partner James Ritter said one occasion in late 2018 was marred by a “suspicion of drug use.”

“There was a smell of burning Styrofoam in the VIP room. We told him nothing illegal can go on here,” Ritter said. “We didn’t see anything illegal. After he was spoken to, the smell stopped.

“VIP employees suspected it was crack,” he added.

Hunter spent “thousands and thousands of dollars in the Archibald’s VIP rooms,” and paid his bills with “credit cards that didn’t have his name on it.”

The club generally required customers to use credit cards that matched official IDs, but “Hunter was a bit of an exception,” Ritter said. “Whenever he was in town he came in for two days in a row, disappeared and come back a month later,” Ritter said.

Archibald’s current owner, Dan Harris, didn’t return an email seeking comment.

At the time of the incident, Hunter was a board member of the Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma, which reportedly paid him as much as $50,000 a month.

Hypocrite Hanoi Jane arrested for her continued PR “climate change” stunt

Hanoi Jane at her latest arrest stunt

Last week I told you how Hanoi Jane was arrested at a climate change protest she organized in DC. From my post:

“Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington, D.C., Friday while taking part in a protest about climate change.

The actress, 81, shared that she would be at the protest retweeting messages from the Fire Drill Fridays account, a Twitter account named for a series of demonstrations she organized to protest political inaction around climate change.

On the Fire Drill Fridays website, Fonda said she’s moved to D.C. “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.”

“Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in,” she wrote. “We can’t afford to wait.”

She got arrested again this past Friday protesting “climate change,” according to her script.

But what do ‘ya know…just last year (April 25, 2018) Hanoi Jane posted a picture on Instagram of her and her fellow libtards promoting their bomb of a movie, Book Club:

Gee, it appears the hypocrite traitor is flying on a private plane, doesn’t it?

And she’s only in living in DC for four months to protest. How do you think she’s getting back to her home in California? By donkey?

HYPOCRITE.

Hanoi Jane arrested at climate change protest she organized in DC

Wouldn’t bother me one bit if they kept this womyn in jail for some time.

From Yahoo: Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington, D.C., Friday while taking part in a protest about climate change.

The actress, 81, shared that she would be at the protest retweeting messages from the Fire Drill Fridays account, a Twitter account named for a series of demonstrations she organized to protest political inaction around climate change.

In an email to USA TODAY, Ira Arlook of Fire Drill Fridays confirmed that Fonda was arrested amid the inaugural demonstration Friday.

U.S. Capitol Police Communications Director Eva Malecki told USA TODAY a total of “16 individuals” were arrested for “unlawfully demonstrating on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol.”

When reached by USA TODAY, a representative for Fonda could not immediately comment.

According to local outlet WUSA’s Mike Valerio, Fonda planned to get arrested. “She tells us she’ll be here *every* Friday into 2020 — demonstrate, get arrested, repeat,” he tweeted with photos of him interviewing the actress.

On the Fire Drill Fridays website, Fonda said she’s moved to D.C. “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.”

“Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in,” she wrote. “We can’t afford to wait.”

Fonda has a history of controversial political activism, including her opposition to the Vietnam War. Fonda’s visit to North Vietnam in 1972 drew fierce backlash that persists today: She was dubbed “Hanoi Jane” and a traitor.

“I’m naive and I make mistakes,” Fonda said in the 2018 HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.” Of the infamous photo that showed her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, she says: “It was a betrayal. … I will go to my grave regretting that.”

This isn’t the first time Fonda has been arrested, either. According to her website, she was arrested for “drug smuggling” at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in 1970.

“I was handcuffed and put in the Cleveland Jail, which is when the mug shot was taken,” she writes. “I was released on bond and months later, after every pill had been tested in a lab (with taxpayers money!) The charges were dismissed and there were a few paragraphs hidden in the back of papers that they were vitamins, not drugs.”

Pediatric study claims fewer kids die from guns in states with stricter laws

This study was conducted for only a five-year period.

They speak about “mandated universal background checks” as if some states don’t even have UBCs.

From Yahoo (via USA Today): Children living in states with more restrictions on firearms are less likely to die from them, a new study says.

States with the strictest gun laws had about 40% fewer firearm-related deaths among children compared with states with the most lax laws, according to the study, published Monday in journal Pediatrics.

“This means, that we may be able to reduce the pediatric death toll in our country by nearly half with strengthened gun safety laws,” lead author Monika Goyal told USA TODAY.

Her team also found that states mandating universal background checks prior to gun purchases had 35% lower gun-related mortality rates in children.

Goyal, an epidemiologist and research director of the emergency division of Children’s National pediatric hospital in Washington, D.C., said she feels compelled to find ways to prevent gun violence – which many say has become a public health crisis. “As a pediatric emergency medicine physician, I personally have cared for too many children who have been unfortunate victims of gun violence,” she said.

Increasing gun-related deaths among children have become a key issue in the USA. A study released last fall found that firearm-related injuries were the second leading cause of deaths among children in the U.S. in 2016.

Rebecca Cunningham, lead author of the 2018 study and emergency medicine professor at the University of Michigan, said guns are especially dangerous around children because of a lack of maturity.

“Children and adolescents do not have the brain maturity to resist impulsive behavior successfully,” Cunningham said. “In other settings, this lack of mature impulse control is not fatal. When reaching for a gun as a toddler or as a depressed or angry teen, that impulsivity is often fatal due to the lethality of the firearms.”

The Pediatrics study found that 21,241 people under 21 died of firearm-related injuries from 2011 to 2015. This means more than 10 children die from gun violence every day, Goyal said.

Lars Dalseide, National Rifle Association spokesperson, said the NRA has made strong efforts to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms. One example is the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program, a gun accident prevention program that teaches kids about gun safety.

Dalseide said he was skeptical of the study’s methods. “Any social scientist worth their salt has to question a study that cherry-picks a microscopic 5-year time window of data when there is more than 50 years of data available,” he said.

There’s still more work to be done in order to understand how legislation may effectively reduce gun-related deaths among children, Goyal said, but it’s a similar process to researching the relationship between car safety and laws.

“Just as we have invested in rigorous scientific research to inform policies related to motor vehicle passenger safety – which have in turn dramatically reduced the number of pediatric deaths from motor vehicle collisions – we must embrace the same evidence-based strategies if we wish to curtail the firearm epidemic in our country,” Goyal said.

Cunningham co-leads the Firearm-Safety Among Children & Teens Consortium (FACTS) researchers across the country working to prevent gun violence against children. She said it’s critical to pursue research into gun violence to gain a full understanding of the issue.

“We don’t have to accept the continued rise of deaths among our children and teens by firearm injury,” Cunningham said. “This is an addressable public health issue, that can be accomplished by injury prevention science while respecting the rights of our citizens.”

Covington Catholic High school student sues NBC for $275M

I hope the kid prevail$.

From Fox News: Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann is suing NBCUniversal for a whopping $275 million over the media coverage he received earlier this year, his lawyer said Wednesday.

Sandmann was at the center of a viral controversy back in January, alongside reports suggesting that he and his classmates had initiated a confrontation with Native American elder Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Subsequent reporting and video evidence contradicted that version of events.

Sandmann’s attorney, Todd V. McMurty, announced the defamation suit against NBCUniversal.

“NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas,” the lawsuit read, saying Sandmann was “an easy target for NBCUniversal to advance its anti-Trump agenda because he was a 16-year-old white, Catholic student who had attended the Right to Life March that day and was wearing a MAGA cap at the time of the incident which he had purchased earlier in the day as a souvenir.”

This marks the third major lawusit Sandmann’s legal team has launched. The team is also suing The Washington Post for $250 million as well as CNN for $275 million. McMurty previously suggested that The Associated Press and HBO could face simiilar lawsuits.

NBCUniversal did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Demorats block shooting survivor Steve Scalise from testifying at gun control legislation hearing. Here’s his statement

What happened to #BelieveSurvivors?

From Fox News: Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Wednesday on new gun control legislation Democrats plan to push on the American people. The top Republican on the committee, Doug Collins, R-Ga., asked committee Democrats if I could testify about this legislation in an appropriate setting to offer another perspective as both a survivor of a shooting attack and strong supporter of our Second Amendment rights. But the Democrats said no. While liberals may try to silence conservative voices, I will not be silenced. The American people deserve to hear all perspectives. Here is the testimony I planned to give:

Statement for the Record

Republican Whip Steve Scalise, House Committee on the Judiciary
February 6, 2019

My name is Steve Scalise. I am the Congressman for Louisiana’s 1st District. I am the Republican Whip. I am also a target of gun violence.

Many of you may be familiar with the events of June 14, 2017. Around 7:00 AM, at the last morning practice before the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, an Illinois man named James Hodgkinson opened fire on myself and a group of Republican legislators and volunteers on an Alexandria, Va. baseball field.

Fortunately, as a member of House leadership, I was accompanied by my Capitol Police security detail who were able to return fire and engage the shooter until additional law enforcement officers arrived and ultimately took down the shooter. I was shot and nearly fatally wounded, and both of my detail agents were shot as well. I am alive today thanks to the bravery of U.S. Capitol Police and the Alexandria Police, heroes like Congressman Brad Wenstrup and the first responders who rushed to the scene, the incredible medical team at Washington MedStar Hospital Center, and most importantly the grace of God.

I applaud the intentions behind this hearing and believe we are all pursuing the same goal of reducing gun violence. As someone who experienced gun violence, I do not want anyone else to go through that trauma. However, it is also important to me that we be honest with ourselves and the American people about what will — or won’t — actually prevent these tragedies. The shooter who targeted me that morning was armed with an SKS rifle and a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun, both of which were purchased in compliance with Illinois gun laws.

The new gun control restrictions currently being considered by the Democratic majority in H.R. 8 would not have prevented my shooting.

In fact, these new gun control measures being proposed in H.R. 8 would not have prevented any number of recent mass violence events. Several perpetrators of recent multi-victim shootings also purchased their guns legally. In some instances, the background check system failed, and lack of intervention from law enforcement failed to intercept potential threats.

I want to stress that the man who shot me was issued a permit to purchase firearms by the state of Illinois, and had acquired them legally. At Virginia Tech, Charleston, and Sutherland Springs failures in the background check system allowed individuals to illegally obtain the firearms they used to commit their crimes. The alleged loopholes that H.R. 8 claims to fix would not have prevented these tragedies either.

Instead, whether intentionally or not, the gun control proposals in H.R. 8 could turn law abiding citizens into criminals while also failing to achieve the stated purpose of reducing gun violence.

A recent study by the Violence Prevention Research Program at UC Davis and Johns Hopkins University into California’s effort to implement “comprehensive background checks” found that, “The simultaneous implementation of [the Comprehensive Background Check policy] and [prohibitions on firearm purchase and possession for persons convicted within the past 10 years of certain violent crimes classified as misdemeanors] was not associated with a net change in the firearm homicide rate over the ensuing 10 years in California.” Even though California implemented more stringent background checks, this study shows that these measures did not reduce gun violence.

In fact, most criminals obtain firearms through unlawful means — whether through theft, straw purchases, or lying on the required paperwork. A DOJ study of federal inmates found that only seven percent who possessed a firearm while committing the crime they were serving time for purchased it legally from a firearms dealer under their own name. Based on similar gun control measures in states like California, H.R. 8 would not deter a criminal from engaging in criminal activity, and it won’t decrease gun crime. Instead, it only succeeds in limiting the ways that law-abiding citizens could exercise their Second Amendment rights.

Every single month in America, law-abiding citizens with concealed carry permits defend themselves and others against criminals who have guns. For example, on January 8th, a man approached a 25-year-old woman in Chicago, displayed a weapon, and attempted to rob her at a bus stop. The woman had a concealed carry permit. She drew her own weapon and fired a shot, killing the armed robber. The owner of a nearby pharmacy said such violence happens “all over” Chicago. However, in this case, the intended victim was able to defend herself with her own gun.

On January 2nd, a Good Samaritan in California with a concealed carry permit used his firearm to stop an attempted stabbing of a security guard and held the perpetrator until law enforcement could arrive at the scene.
On January 17th, a man at an IHOP in Alabama opened fire on employees, killing one before another employee pulled his handgun and killed the shooter in self-defense.

On January 29th, an armed robber held up a Family Dollar Store in Georgia. A customer was able to use a personal firearm to shoot and kill the robber before the criminal could hurt any of the many employees or customers in the store.

These are just some examples from the last month alone. There are hundreds of stories like these every single year from law-abiding Americans all over the country.

I am alive due to the effective and immediate response of my Capitol Police detail, and the Alexandria Police Department. Most victims of gun violence do not have law enforcement already on the scene to respond to a violent gunman. Instead of making it harder for citizens to defend themselves until law enforcement arrives, Congress should consider legislation like H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, a bill that would help law-abiding citizens have the same tools to defend themselves as a criminal has of trying to inflict harm, regardless of where they travel.

I firmly believe we must never forget, nor minimize, the importance of the Second Amendment to our Constitution.
H.R. 8, as well as other new gun control legislation currently being considered by the House Democrat majority do not accomplish the goal of reducing gun violence.

Pornhub reports spike in DC of porn viewership during government shutdown

Those federal workers carry a real burden…

From Fox News: As the partial government shutdown heads into its 28th day, Pornhub has reported a spike in traffic — coinciding with the same time some federal workers have stayed home from work.

The site’s Insights team analyzed data from Jan. 7 to Jan. 11, and found that not only has PornHub seen an almost six percent increase in visitors, it’s also seen a “distinct shift in the hours during which people are watching porn.”

The porn-viewing site’s traffic — pre-shutdown — was usually at its peak from 10 p.m. to midnight. But, post-shutdown, “late-night traffic increased by up to 14% above average, while early morning traffic from 9am to 10am had the smallest change.”

In Washington D.C. alone, Pornhub claims its hourly traffic has increased an average of 6.32 percent, with female traffic, in particular, increasing 12.3 percent above average.

The now-longest government shutdown in U.S. history started Dec. 22, and has left more than 800,000 federal workers and contractors without pay. Some federal employees have been deemed essential to government functions and are required to work without pay. Others have been furloughed, but are still left unpaid.

Both Democrats and Republicans are at a standstill as President Donald Trump continues to demand $5.7 billion for a border wall, a request that some Democrats have described as immoral.

Idiota: Washington DC marriage clerk asks groom for his “passport” after he presented New Mexico driver license

And to think that this person votes…

From NBC Washington: A groom encountered a surprising snag when trying to get a marriage license in D.C. last week: A clerk told him his New Mexico identification wasn’t acceptable because it was from outside the United States. 

“She was so sincere. She said, ‘I’m sorry, my supervisor says we can’t accept international driver’s licenses,’” recounted Gavin Clarkson, who went to get a license with his now-wife, Marina, at the D.C. Marriage Bureau on Nov. 20.

Clarkson said that when he first presented his license to the clerk, she looked at it, went to talk to the supervisor and then asked to see his “New Mexico passport,” he told NBC Washington on a phone call Friday.

He said the clerk was embarrassed and apologetic once the matter was straightened out.

After he informed her that New Mexico was indeed a state, she again went to speak with her supervisor, then told Clarkson, “‘My supervisor and I have verified that New Mexico is a state,'” he recounted.

“Basically, they went back and did a Google search,” he said.

At one point, the clerk also complimented him on his English, he said, noting that his now-wife, who is an immigrant, thought it was hilarious.

Leah Gurowitz, spokeswoman for District of Columbia Courts, wrote in a statement, “We understand that a clerk in our Marriage Bureau made a mistake regarding New Mexico’s 106-year history as a state. We very much regret the error and the slight delay it caused a New Mexico resident in applying for a DC marriage license.”

Tolerance: Woman assaulted by two women in D.C. for saying she supports Trump


The “tolerant” left strike again.
From KATU: A woman said she was assaulted after she interjected into a conversation last month outside a D.C. restaurant to say she supports President Donald Trump, according to a police report.
The woman told D.C. police the assault took place around 1 a.m. on March 16 outside Surfside restaurant at 1800 N Street, NW.
According to the police report, the woman, overhearing a conversation between two women and one man, brought herself into the discussion by saying, “I support Donald Trump.”
The two women then assaulted her, she said, while the man tried to stop them.
D.C. police released video Monday of the two suspects. Included in the video shows one of the two suspects appear to strike someone filming her as the video image shakes once her hand appears to make contact with that person.
The woman then left and took herself to Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, where she called 911 and was interviewed.
Police are calling the incident a felony assault.
Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police Department at (202) 727-9099.

Spew alert: Former FBI Director and Clinton hack James Comey to teach "ethical leadership" class

james comey

This is how much I care about “ethics”


#ReleaseTheMemo!
From CNN: Former FBI Director James Comey will teach a course on ethical leadership at William and Mary beginning in the fall, according to an article on the Virginia college’s website.
The course will meet primarily at the college’s Washington, DC, center and once at the campus in Williamsburg, Virginia. Comey will co-teach the course with Drew Stelljes, executive assistant professor of education and assistant vice president for student leadership, in fall 2018 and spring and summer 2019.
Comey, who graduated from the college in 1982, told the school he is “thrilled” at the chance to teach this course.
“Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly the truth,” Comey says in the article. “Building and maintaining that kind of leadership, in both the private sector and government, is the challenge of our time.”
William and Mary’s president, Taylor Reveley, said in statement quoted in the article that Comey has been “deeply committed” to the college over the years.
“He understands to the core of his being that our leaders must have an abiding commitment to ethical behavior and sacrificial service if we are to have good government.”
Comey led the FBI from 2013 until last year, when he was fired by President Donald Trump. Comey, as director, oversaw the investigation into whether Trump campaign members colluded with Russians who hacked the 2016 election.
