High school student violates dress code, ends up in jail. Here’s how it escalated.

A Kentucky high school student wore a t-shirt to protest her school’s dress code, and by the end of the day she had been arrested, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Isabella Messer of Hopkinsville High School ended up kicking a school resource officer after an encounter with the school principal went south.
“She shouldn’t have been in any kind of trouble. Now it turned out to be where she’s in McCracken [Regional Juvenile Detention Center] because the assistant principal did not like what her shirt had read,” her mother, Theresa Rucks, told the Herald Leader. “They got her with resisting arrest for a shirt that was peaceful protesting,” she said.

Republican congressman has a hilarious response to protester, and it has gone viral

Rep. Billy Long (R-Mo.) had a hilarious response to a protester who interrupted a congressional hearing Wednesday, and the video of their exchange went viral.
Here’s what happened
Long upstaged a right-wing protester who had interrupted the hearing where Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was responding to questions about bias in the popular social media platform. Dorsey was being questioned by members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
“President Donald Trump, help us!” she exclaimed while videotaping with her iPhone. “Please help us Mr. President before it is too late, because Jack Dorsey is trying to influence the election, to sway the election to help Democrats to steal the election! That is why he is censoring and shadow-banning!”
The protester probably didn’t expect Long using his 30 years of experience as an auctioneer to shut down her protest.

Controversial junior high ‘Whom to Leave Behind’ lesson meant to ‘promote tolerance’: superintendent

A controversial Ohio middle school “diversity” exercise — which asked students to choose certain types of people to leave behind on a doomed Earth while others escape on a space ship — “aligned with the goals” of the school district to “promote tolerance and break down stereotypes,” the superintendent told WJW-TV.
The “Whom To Leave Behind” exercise was given to students at Roberts Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls late last month, telling them to select four people from a hypothetical list of 12 to leave behind as “tomorrow the planet Earth is doomed,” the station said, adding that the remaining eight would be passengers on a space ship to another planet.

The Republican National Committee released a new campaign ad on Wednesday showing how the Democratic Party has become completely unhinged as they have embraced leftism.

Law enforcement officials have had to arrest approximately 143 protesters throughout the confirmation process, which has gone on for two days so far.

In the latest upset during the 2018 Democratic primaries, Ayanna Pressley beat a veteran 10-term Democrat in Massachusetts in a House race being watched nationally as an indicator of the future of the Democratic Party.
***
In her victory speech, Pressley said: “These times demanded more from our leaders and from our party. These times demanded an approach to governing that was bold, uncompromising and unafraid. It’s not just good enough to see the Democrats back in power but it matters who those Democrats are.”

Bill Would Force NASA Cooperation with Israel Despite History of Israeli Espionage

A new Senate bill would bind NASA to cooperate with Israel’s Space Agency, despite the latter’s history of espionage against the United States.

— A bill that was passed by the U.S. Senate in early August and is currently under consideration by the House would mandate that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) work closely with the Israel Space Agency (ISA) despite the fact that such cooperation in the past was used by Israel to steal U.S. state secrets.

The provision is tucked within the bill titled the “United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018.
," which would also provide Israel with $38 billion in U.S. military aid over a ten-year period, the largest military aid package in U.S. history>>>

China’s brain drain to the US is ending, thanks to higher salaries and Donald Trump

Better salaries for postdoctoral research fellows and a more hostile atmosphere in America mean more Chinese scientists prefer to stay at home

China appears to have successfully reversed a “brain drain” among top researchers who have gone overseas in droves for years, mostly to the United States.

Now, many of the country’s best and brightest scientists are staying put, as higher pay packages and changing perceptions of domestic scientists increase the appeal of local jobs.

Staunching the exodus of research talent from China is the administration of US President Donald Trump, whose aggressive moves have promoted a climate that is unfriendly to scientists of Chinese origin.
***
In past years, more than 95 per cent of Chinese students obtaining an advanced degree in a developed country chose to stay there after graduation. By the end of last year, however, more than 83 per cent had returned to China, most within the five years starting in 2012.

Despite the Trump administration’s restrictions on US-bound Chinese students and researchers, many young Chinese scientists have responded to those moves with a shrug given the pay is better back home.

Outrage Against Nike Explodes Online: “Slave Factories” “Evil Monster Corporation” Makes Users Want to “Puke” +Videos

Outrage is exploding online against Nike, which signed the cop-hating, American flag-hating NFL crybaby Colin Kaepernick to a promotion deal in a desperate act of virtue signaling.

The move cements Nike’s perception as an America-hating, globalist “evil monster corporation” running slave factories for profit while funneling money to the very people who don’t deserve it (like Colin).

Absurdly, the Nike campaign featuring Kaepernick claims people should pursue their dreams “even if it means sacrificing everything.” Yet Kaepernick has made no sacrifice and has lost nothing. He’s another NFL millionaire social justice crybully who has mastered the art of victimhood rather than mastering the art of being a competent professional football player.

Writing Professor: Milk Is A ‘Tool For White Dominance And Superiority’

In the era of social justice warriors, when racism doesn’t exist, it’s manufactured out of thin air. A sociology professor has now invented a “tool of white superiority” and it’s something most of us – regardless of our race – have sitting in our refrigerators right now.

Milk is racist, according to George Washington University Law School’s writing professor Iselin Gambert. Ignoring the fact that all human women have the ability to produce milk to feed their babies, Gambert decided to go looking for racism. She also sees milk as a tool of the patriarchy, which is incredibly unsurprising.

Guam: What it means to be from a US territory

Many people on Guam, and in other US territories, say they are treated as second-class citizens.

They can't vote for the president and the one representative each territory is given in Congress also has no voting power, even though most people living in the territories are US citizens.

"Most members of Congress, they couldn't find Guam on a map and they don't want to because it's completely off their radar," Anne Perez Hattori, a Chamorro History professor at the University of Guam, tells AJ+.

The indigenous Chamorro people in Guam have had their traditional practices stripped away from them over the hundreds of years that they've been colonised by the Spanish, occupied by the Japanese and militarised by the Americans.

Familiar faces? Twitter compares ‘GRU Novichok assassins’ to Soviets in Schwarzenegger action flick

The latest plot twist in the Salisbury poisoning case has evoked fond memories of trashy ’80s action films, with users on Twitter comparing photos of the just-accused pair of “GRU agents” to the Soviet villains in ‘Red Heat.’

The photographs of ‘Ruslan Boshirov’ and ‘Alexander Petrov’ – the two men now accused by the UK of poisoning ex-Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in March – reminded some observant Twitter users of the Georgian drug kingpin and his associate from the 1988 action film.

...

The names of the two suspects are also somewhat noteworthy – mostly for their total lack of noteworthiness.

“Worth noting that both names, ‘Alexander Petrov’ and ‘Ruslan Boshirov’ are ‘John Smith’ equivalents in Russian & Russian Muslim world. The 12 Russians indicted by Mueller in July for DNC hacking also had common, could-be-anybody names,” Amie Ferris-Rotman, the Washington Post’s Moscow correspondent, tweeted.

Nike Just Bought Themselves a Whole World of Trouble

Normally, big companies will avoid controversy like the plague. At least, that used to be the case. These days, it seems that corporations are in a race to see which one of them can earn the “Most Woke” award at the year-end LiberalMania ceremony, which we assume is held on some private island owned by George Soros and is accompanied by some of the strangest, most perverse sex parties you’ve ever dreamed of. And probably lots of Beyoncé music. But we’re just theorizing.

California’s In-N-Out Burger has already given up their claim to the award, having donated $25,000 to the Republican Party, so apparently Nike saw an opportunity to grab the brass ring. Thus, they decided, out of all the sports celebrities they could pick to represent the 30th anniversary of the iconic “Just Do It” campaign, there would be no one better to catapult them to the next level than renowned flag-disrespecter Colin Kaepernick.

Sick Ad Campaign Shows Just How Little The Left Values Life

That’s right – NARAL and other abortion groups aligned with the left think that murdering babies is something to be taken lightly. That it should receive no more consideration than choosing what outfit to wear each day.

Their new campaign advertises a partnership with an Oregon ice cream shop, What’s The Scoop? and Pro-Choice Oregon with the introduction of a new ice cream flavor for August – “Rocky Roe v. Wade.”

The special flavor will be sold in pints for around ten dollars, with half of the profits going to support NARAL’s anti-life programs.

4 Reasons Nike Chose Colin Kaepernick To Lead Its 'Just Do It' Campaign

o, why Colin Kaepernick?
Why did Nike choose, for its 30th anniversary of the Just Do It campaign, an out-of-work quarterback who hasn’t performed well in three years, rode the pine the year after going to the Super Bowl, and ended up jobless thanks to wild incompetence on the field?
There are sound business reasons.
Nike, you see, is a profit-focused corporation. There is real opportunity for profit-making in political pandering. And kowtowing to Kaepernick’s much-ballyhooed kneeling-for-the-anthem routine is political pandering in the extreme.

‘Shout Your Abortion’ Website Allegedly Steals Photo Of Conservative Girl To Promote Pro-Abortion Article

A conservative woman claims a pro-abortion website stole her photo to help promote their article titled, “I am 23 and I have had 3 abortions. YES I HAVE!,” leading many to believe that she was the author of the article.
The article, which has since been removed with no explanation, was featured on a website called "Shout Your Abortion," which describes itself as "a decentralized network of individuals talking about abortion on our own terms and creating space for others to do the same." The website also declares that "abortion is normal."

'He's devastated': EVERY penny of the $400,000 raised for good Samaritan homeless man has been spent by the couple who started GoFundMe page for him after he gave them his last $20

Every penny of the $400,000 raised by strangers to give a kind homeless veteran a new start after he spent his final $20 to buy a stranded woman gas has been spent by her and her boyfriend, according to the man's lawyer.

In a devastating outcome for Johnny Bobbitt after what seemed like an end to his strife with the couple, he and his lawyer discovered the fund was depleted on Tuesday after finally winning control of it nine months after it was set up to help him.

'There is no money left. Where the money went, I have no idea,' Bobbitt's lawyer Christopher C. Fallon Jr. told nj.com on Tuesday, adding Bobbitt was 'completely devastated' by the discovery.

It comes less than a week after Kate McLure and Mark D'Amico, the couple who set it up then withheld it from him, went on national television to claim there was still 'well over' $150,000 left.

Kaep was re-signed by Nike in the form of an endorsement deal, which turned out to be very lucrative. It’s reported to be a “star deal,” so he’ll be making millions of dollars, and will also get royalties on some of the apparel sales, just like current NFL stars get.
