    FEC Complaint Accuses Ilhan Omar of Breaking Law to Fund Alleged Affair

    A complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Wednesday alleges freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) illegally used campaign money to help carry on an extramarital affair with a Democrat consultant whose firm she paid tens of thousands of dollars.

    Federal campaign finance records show that Omar’s campaign has paid nearly $230,000 since 2018 to the E. Street Group, a political strategy firm of which the lawmaker’s alleged married lover, Tim Mynett, is a partner of. On Tuesday, Mynett’s wife, Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett, filed for divorce in a D.C.-area court, alleging her spouse confessed to having an affair with Omar in April, the same month FEC documents show that the lawmaker’s campaign began issuing payments to E. Street Group for “travel expenses.” According to FEC filings, the Minnesota Democrat campaign made eight payments totaling $21,547 to E. Street Group for travel costs between April and June. The divorce filings, first reported by the New York Post, also states Tim Mynett made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota Democrat to his wife and left her soon after.

    Hugh Grant said rude things about Boris.

    I believe he’s an expert on the subject.

    Johanna, re you post yesterday on the ACT’s, err, unimpressive NAPLAN results, our Labor education ‘Minister’, the dull and dowdy Yvette Berry – daughter of former Labor ‘Minister’ Wayne Berry – inadvertently confirmed your comments on WIN News last nightNine .

    According to her, NAPLAN only measures very narrow factors and that the ACT education system was more concerned with developing broader life and cultural skills – or words to that effect.

    The Education Union guy – Glen Fowler, local ABC favourite and chronic Canberra Times ‘letters to the editor’ contributor – was gibbering with rage about the outcomes, claiming that the test was ‘invalid’. Whatever, the fact that his members are for all practical purposes unsackable in the ACT public education system may be a contributing factor to the poor outcomes.

    Belgium.

    A little piece of freezing wet sludge with a rich history of being invaded and subjugated by the Vikings, Frisians, the French, Dutch, Normans, Spanish, English and most notably the Chermans.

    Couldn’t even colonise Africa properly. That’s how well they’re going. And now they’ve the hide to direct everyone else only to sell cabbages of certain dimensions.

    At least Poland and Hungary have told them to bash it up their collective arses, and they’ll eat whatever size cabbages they like. Salvini in Italy’s heading down the same path.

    How the EU survived as long as it has is a mystery for the ages.

    I believe Hugh Grant’s next picture has the working title

    Also find it a little hard to believe that Hugh’s grandfather fought in two world wars against Germany to be in the EU and dictated to by Germany.

    it’s a constitutional outrage!

    Hugh Grant said rude things about Boris.

    It’s great fun. The hysteria about Boris proroguing Parliament has all the usual lefties’ heads exploding. Brains everywhere!

    Normally having the PM prorogue Parliament in September would be manna from heaven. The MP kiddies would all traipse off to Brighton beach to paddle in the surf, such as it is. But now he’s defying democracy! Which they’ve all been defying for three years by overriding the will of the people in the Brexit referendum.

  14. Leigh Lowe

    At least Poland and Hungary have told them to bash it up their collective arses, and they’ll eat whatever size cabbages they like. Salvini in Italy’s heading down the same path.

    That is what they are afraid of.
    If the Brits go, it is over.

    How the EU survived as long as it has is a mystery for the ages.

    Remember it started out ostensibly as a purely economic arrangement – the “Common Market” – with no mention of usurping political control over member states.
    That prolly just was a accident.

  15. Knuckle Dragger

    You fuck just one goat, right Hugh?

    The (Aug 17th) firing of NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who was involved in the fatal arrest of Eric Garner in 2014, appears to have already had an effect on the Big Apple, with the number of arrests dropping sharply compared to 2018 and cops warning of plummeting morale among New York City’s finest.

    Between Aug. 17, when Pantaleo was fired, and Aug. 25, arrests had already dropped by 27 percent compared to the same period in 2018, the New York Post reported.

    Say it ain’t so! NY Cops decided to just stop arresting people and play it safe under the reign of Great Leader of the Revolution Mayor DeBlasio?

    Multiple law enforcement sources told The Post that while there is no organized slowdown, cops on the street clearly feel that the department doesn’t have their backs, so why should they needlessly put themselves on the line?

    I’m shocked. I mean who could have seen this coming?

A handful of others were wounded in the attacks from the rival I slamist outlawed group.

    The title to the photo says it all:

    I’m NOT convinced yet, but I think there may be a possibility one of the reasons Australians suffer high home prices is also related to the fact that we’re a small population congregated around 5 or 6 lared cities and it’s the small population size that makes real estate more expensive. The reason is that satellite cities of the sort you have in America really don’t exist here. You can get a job.. a decent job.. in those smaller cities and also maintain a semblance of an urban life style. You can only achieve this through larger populations.

    Interesting thought, but the two examples where it might be contradicted are the two examples of NSW (Newcastle/Sydney/Wollongong) and the Brisbane/Gold Coast/Sunshine Coast regions. What are the relative prices in each major centre and its two satellites?

    In each of those cases there is a major city with two associated satellite cities. The Melbourne/Geelong example is rather weaker, while Tasmania, SA, WA and the NT are very much as you describe.

    The ACT is an artificial anomaly.

    Docklands’ Central Pier evacuated amid fears for public safety

    Hundreds of people were dramatically evacuated from Docklands’ Central Pier after it was deemed to be deteriorating and dangerous last night, with AFL officials now scrambling for a new venue ahead of tomorrow’s Rising Star awards.

    AFL officials are scrambling for a new venue for tomorrow’s Rising Star Award ceremony after Docklands’ Central Pier was deemed dangerous and shut down.

    Hundreds of people were last night evacuated from venues at the century-old landmark after it was found to be deteriorating and dangerous.

    Immediately after last night’s All-Australian dinner, AFL and broadcast staff were understood to have been scouting alternative venues for Friday’s lunchtime function, which was set to be held at Peninsula, an Atlantic Group venue.

    Star young Blue Sam Walsh is tipped to take home the prize.

    Engineers on Wednesday told Development Victoria the pier was unsafe for use and needed to be closed.

    “As a result, formal notice was provided to all operators of premises that the pier must be vacated,” Development Victoria spokesman Geoff Ward said in a statement on Wednesday night.

    “Engineers have been inspecting the pier every two months since November 2018 and had previously provided certification that supported the ongoing occupation of the pier.”

    “However, given the notice received from the engineers today, there was no alternative but to require the pier be vacated in order to preserve public safety.”

    It is understood patrons were asked to leave the venues at the pier, which is located across from Marvel Stadium along the Harbour Esplanade, on Wednesday evening.

    On opioids.

    The buck stops with the doctors.

    Also Tramadol features surprisingly high in the list of products people overdose from, its considered very addictive. Its kept in our little locked safe along with our morphine on site.

    Short paper on deaths from drugs.
    In 2016, two-thirds (65%, n=679) of deaths were attributed to pharmaceutical opioids only; one-quarter to heroin only (24%, n=247); and 11% (n=111) to both pharmaceutical opioids and heroin. There were 498 deaths attributed to natural and semi-synthetic opioids (e.g. morphine, codeine, and oxycodone), 357 deaths attributed to heroin, 214 deaths attributed to synthetic opioid analgesics (e.g. fentanyl and tramadol), and 205 deaths to methadone

    The introduction of the real time pharmacy scripts was supposed to stop “smurfing” and going from doc to doc to harvest pills.

    Fact of the matter is the products work extremely well, they do exactly what they are supposed to do and people love it enough to sell their arse for more.

    Heres a few Ive known.
    Ex-skipper, would travel up and down WA as a “tourist” visiting a doc in each stop to claim his baggage had been pinched and he had lost his morphine tablets. About $6 a packet and he could sell each individual tablet for $50.
    Customer, taking heavy duty pain killers, some days incapable of talking, lay on a lounge with his feet over the end armrest long enough to atrophy the bloodflow to his feet which he nearly lost.
    Customer with 12 kids, was the subject of an inquest after she forged/stole/doctor shopped a massive quantity of drugs and overdosed, had been doing so for years.
    Copper mate, gets called to a house in summer, dead body rotting on the lounge, had been a speed freak for years. Teacher/girlfriend living with him states “I didnt think you could overdose from that”…

  101. Ivan Denisovich

    The idea that London will suffer from Brexit is hysterical nonsense.

    Former Iceland P.M.:

    In late 2008 Iceland suffered especially harshly from the international financial crisis. The country’s banking system experienced a near-total collapse. The value of the currency tumbled, inflation surged, government debt as a percentage of GDP more than tripled in an instant. In 2009, a new government formed by the two parties on the left submitted an application for EU membership. The rationalisation offered to the public was that joining the EU was the only way to survive.

    Iceland was already a member of the European Economic Area (EEA), which facilitates free trade with the EU. But after the application was submitted, the EU became increasingly stringent regarding the implementation of EU regulations in Iceland. Many of Iceland’s bureaucrats were enthusiastic about obliging.

    The elections of 2013, however, brought a halt to accession talks, and in 2015, my government formally withdrew Iceland’s application for EU membership. I had come to the conclusion that withdrawing the application was essential in order for us to be able to make the arrangements necessary for successfully rebuilding the economy.

    And bounce back we did. Soon Iceland had the highest GDP growth rate of any developed country. We saw the sharpest fall in government debt achieved by any nation in modern history. Unemployment shrank and, at the same time, we invested heavily in healthcare and other essential services.

    Yet the methods we used to bring this remarkable transformation about would not have been possible had we joined the EU and adopted the euro and become bound by EU regulations. Had we done so, our fate would very likely instead have resembled that of Greece.

    My government’s decision to withdraw the application for EU membership was, of course, met with hostility from globalists, both foreign and domestic. At every step we were treated to predictions of impending catastrophe very similar to those now being ascribed to Brexit. How odd that adherents of a new global order continue to advocate an international system based on fear and submission rather than reciprocity.

    If Iceland, while outside the EU, can achieve the highest level of growth of any western nation so soon after the collapse of its banking system and public finances, then I’m sure that a post-Brexit Britain — the world’s fifth-largest economy — can prosper, too. Nevertheless, there will certainly be some negative short-term consequences from leaving the EU. What can you do to avoid them?

    One possible solution is for the UK to become a temporary member of the EEA agreement along with Iceland, Norway, and Liechtenstein and, of course, the EU. Here the word ‘temporary’ is paramount. It could be for a few years or longer — depending on the time needed to make other arrangements.

    By doing so, the UK would be out of the EU at the end of October while still retaining free trade with the EU. You would immediately be able to make new free trade agreements all over the world. Iceland has more free trade agreements than most other countries, including the first such agreement made with China by a European country. In talks on free trade, the UK would be negotiating from a position of strength.

    In becoming a member of the EEA, the UK would be joining a system that is already tried and tested. There could be a smooth transition, with no need for a frantic attempt to create a complicated new mechanism in a matter of weeks. Citizens’ rights would be guaranteed while a new framework is developed. And the same goes for trade in goods, services and capital.

    What’s more, there would be no hard border in Ireland, just as there is no hard border between Sweden (EU) and Norway (EEA) or Germany (EU) and Switzerland (which has its own bilateral deal with the EU). Luckily, neither the UK nor the Republic of Ireland is a member of Schengen, so there are no problems on that front. And being out of Schengen will allow the UK to protect its other borders, as it does now…………

    Hollywood Diversifies After Rebuke over Racial and Gender Inequality

    After the #OscarsSoWhite campaign in 2015 called the industry out for inequality, all the major studios implemented policies geared toward increasing diversity, or they created executive roles to promote such goals.

    Four years on, the percentage of nonwhite or Latino actors appearing in leading roles more than doubled, while the share of films with women playing leading roles increased to 61%, from 42% in 2015. During the same period, the number of women directing major motion pictures also rose to 16, from eight.

    Of the 70 live-action films being distributed to theaters by Hollywood’s top six studios this year, 51% showcase a nonwhite or Latino lead, versus 22% in 2015, the Journal’s analysis found.

    Hollywood’s reputation as a bastion of liberal values took a major public beating in 2015 as advocates of the #OscarsSoWhite campaign targeted the movie business after all 20 acting nominations for that year’s Academy Awards went to white performers. Then, the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements helped to galvanize criticism of movie studios for industrywide racial and gender inequality that many critics say has persisted for several decades.

    #OscarsSoWhite wasn’t the only event in 2015 to put Hollywood in the crosshairs. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission began investigating whether major studios had discriminated against women directors, following such allegations, a person familiar with the investigation said. The status of that probe is unclear, and the EEOC declined to comment.

    In a study released in January, USC’s Ms. Smith and her colleagues found that women held 22.8% of executive roles at major media companies, while only 6% of all executives were women of color.

    Because movies can take years to produce, there is a delay before the changes Hollywood makes become visible. The biggest studio, Disney, for instance, has shown only minor gains in recent years, both on-screen and in the director’s chair. Yet its roster of future projects demonstrates it is moving toward increased diversity on and off screen.

    Next year four of the studio’s nine movie titles will be directed by women. Disney had just one in 2015 and two in 2019.

    Additionally, after raking in huge profits from Marvel superhero movies “Black Panther” and this year’s “Captain Marvel”—both showcasing black and female stars and directors—Disney at this year’s Comic-Con announced many movie and TV projects featuring women or nonwhite or Latino actors playing leading roles.

    Disney is featuring African-American performers in leading roles in some of its live-action remakes of classic animated titles. Those include Will Smith in this year’s “Aladdin” and Halle Bailey in “The Little Mermaid,” set to begin shooting in 2020.

    Therapy Bans Are Just the Beginning

    To date, twenty states and many cities have made it illegal to offer therapy for minors unless it affirms the LGBT agenda — and several more are considering similar bans. In these jurisdictions, therapists may help a child or teen accept same-sex attraction or a different gender identity, but they will not help a teen who aspires to change their same-sex attraction or sexual identity. It is illegal even to ask questions to help a child explore underlying issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity.

    And if the federal Equality Act is enacted, it will be illegal across all states.

    What is it about Universities and employing amoral pieces of Communist shit?
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/28/sidney-rittenberg-obituary

    Sidney Rittenberg, an American from South Carolina, was one of the few non-Chinese people to become a senior member of the Chinese Communist party. Known in China, and still revered, as Li Dunbai (which sounds like Rittenberg to Chinese ears), he was an active participant in the communist revolution of the late 1940s and its aftermath.

    An intimate of Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Deng Xiaoping and almost every other veteran revolutionary, Rittenberg, who has died aged 98, gained prominence at the Broadcast Administration in Beijing, one of the most important agencies of government, and for a few months in 1967 was the director of Radio Peking, on which he occasionally broadcast in his distinctive southern US accent.

    Rittenberg also translated Mao’s Complete Works and the Little Red Book into English and became a leading rabble-rouser in the Cultural Revolution that began in 1966. At that time he would address rapturous crowds of up to 100,000. Jiang Qing, Mao’s wife and the leader of what would come to be known as the Gang of Four, once commented acidly that, at 45, Rittenberg was a little old to be a Red Guard, but he pressed on regardless, until Jiang Qing, thought to have been jealous of this popular foreigner, had him thrown into jail for a 10-year term.
    ……

    Rittenberg explained that his idealism and the belief that he was taking part in the development of a new and better world blinded him to the atrocious persecution and murder of even close friends of his. “It’s a kind of corruption, exactly the kind of corruption that ruins the whole thing,” he said. “I believed I was part of history. That’s what you get with ideology and power. You learn to harden your heart in the name of the wonderful new world you’re building. Once you do that, you do all kinds of things. I did.”

    Rittenberg, in later years at least, had an impish sense of humour, loved jokes – especially Jewish jokes – and was called upon as a commentator on Chinese affairs by both western and Chinese media. In 1993 his memoir, The Man Who Stayed Behind, was published, and in 2012 he was the subject of the documentary The Revolutionary.

    He taught into his 90s at several US universities. On his office door at one there was a sign that read “S. Rittenberg. History.” Under it, he wrote: “Not yet.”

    Mitch, I have chronic arthritis, very painful, is never going to get better, only worse. I take tramadol, a slow release synthetic opiod, in fairly low doses, every day. Am I addicted? I don’t know, and it doesn’t matter, for practical purposes, because my choices are to take them (or something similar) or live in permanent, severe pain.

    Johanna gets it.
    We also have a problem with middle aged sedentary people who would like to be more active, but low level constant pain stops them from being so. The human body wasn’t meant to last 50 + years.
    So we forbid them stuff like coca leaf to get a bit of activity going, then criticise them for being sedentary.
    It comes down to the old issue of 90% of mankind just want to get on with their lives, and the other 10% want to control the 90% because power and virtue signalling.

    I shudder to think how close this came to being the leader of the free world. To say the least, time and mother nature hasn’t been kind to her.

    Maria’s explanation for missing our date was that she and Diaboli slept from noon to six pm.

    I have been thinking of getting her to assist in my import-export scheme which would involve flying her to Oz. Given her organisational skills, she’d be two days and six hours late for the flight and would have forgotten her passport. If she managed to get the plane she’d get lost in Spain or somewhere. The probability of her actually turning up in Oz is pretty much zero.

    I’m not used to incompetence on this scale. It’s like dealing with small children.

    She’s got street smarts, but they are Cuban streets. I don’t think they transfer to anywhere else.

    It’s going on all the time if you pay attention, this whitewashing of history.

    And:

    As I switched off, the fact that Obama is on the Netflix board came to mind.

    Yet last night I watched The Highwaymen on Netflix. Starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson. It is the story of the two Texas Rangers pursuit and killing of Bonny and Clyde.

    Excellent movie and as far as I could tell with my limited knowledge, historically accurate and great attention to detail. Fantastic cars too. Best Kevin Costner movie for decades.

    areff, during the movie, the Sheriff confides in Robin that he was abused by the clergy as a boy.

    Weirdly enough Boris Johnson has an eccentric, mop-top windblown hairstyle that Hugh Grant used in his movies to give that boyishly charming look to his characters and very successful too.

    I wonder if Hugh Grant was the inspiration for Boris J’s eccentric look? rakish and slightly untidy but endearing sort of, or think they are endearing.

  163. Top Ender

    Yes, The Highwaymen is very good.

    We went to the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame recently in the USA. Very large well laid out museum.

    I like how the Netflix screensaver still cycles through the same programs they did 12 months ago.

    One of them is David Letterman sporting a Santa beard so he can coax young interns to “Come sit on Santa’s lap”.

    Opposite him, a little out of focus, is Obama with how great mouth agape and head turned like a jug-eared laughing clown at the Easter Show.

    The logo for the show is something like “My next guest needs no introduction”.

    I look at it and think that the two of them are such pathetic has-beens. And in just the last twelve months, Obama has just shrunk. Abandoned by the press and dismissed by his old cheer-squad who have moved onto other moving spots of light pointed at the ground like cats.

    The most substantial thing about him is surely his toenails, which I imagine to be yellowed and gnarled extensions of horn protruding from the fringes of his feet.

    I am thinking of dumping Netflix anyway. Half the programs are in Hindi, their own programs are SJW crap, and the things worth watching are being snuffed out one by one.

    I might move to Prime. Stan seems to have a very unhealthy fixation on cross-dressers.

  165. Top Ender

    That reminds me – 33 years ago I left a cardboard box in Launceston on a pavement.

    Council apologises for throwing out homeless man’s possessions

    The City of Launceston Council has apologised after its staff disposed of items belonging to a homeless man.

    Council workers removed a tied up rubbish bag, cloth and torn piece of cardboard from the front steps of a State Government building in the CBD earlier this week.

    They had been requested to remove the items by the State Government.

    In a statement, the council said staff had no reason to believe the items were anything other than litter and it would never knowingly dispose of anyone’s private property.

    “The council has since received a complaint that the items belonged to a person struggling with homelessness,” the statement said.

    “This was an unfortunate outcome, for which the council sincerely apologises.”

    The council says it has followed up the incident with relevant service providers, and has confirmed the person has been provided with necessary care and assistance.

    Drought slashes soybean production prompting fierce competition for the small crop, warnings of price hikes

    United States’ President Donald Trump’s trade war with China has seen US soybean growers pushed out of a major market, and global prices slump as a result.

    But nearly 95 per cent of the US soybean crop was genetically modified, and many Australian manufacturers have committed to being free of genetically modified (GM) ingredients.

    But:

    “The sort of soybeans that we’re looking for are non-GM, organic if that’s possible, and varieties that are suited for soymilk, flour, tempeh, tofu,” Mr Goddard said.

    So, First World, self-inflicted agony.

    I was wondering if that was the first time that security guard had taken advantage of a toddler.

    The guy was born in Iraq. He travelled over here, snuck in, molested at least one toddler, and his punishment is going to be…being sent back to where he would have been anyway.

    If they don’t let him stay in general population wearing a sign ‘Kiddy Fiddler’ or ‘While you are in here I would go after your kids’, and the guards just happening to be looking the other way, then there is no justice.

    At least 17 children developed so-called “werewolf syndrome” after a major medicine mix-up, Spain’s health ministry has said.

    The children – some of them babies – began growing hair all over their body after being given what was thought to be omeprazole, a drug that helps with gastric reflux.

    After investigating, authorities discovered the treatment actually contained minoxidil, a medication used for the treatment of hair loss.

    Trump’s ‘chopper talk’ news conferences blow away White House press corps

    Some reporters are complaining that President Trump’s recent “gaggles” on the White House lawn — as Marine One’s helicopter rotors blare in the background — make it more difficult for them to hold the president accountable and paints them in an unprofessional light, according to a report.

    “There’s no question that it works to his advantage that we look unruly and disorderly,” veteran New York Times White House reporter Peter Baker told Politico. “It’s not like standing at a podium in the East Room or the briefing room, where you can have a civilized calling on people who raise their hands.”

    Masterful.

    Thanks. I’m not subscribed to Netflix etc in part because there is a lot of good old stuff on youtube.

    This movie on SBS On Demand isn’t old but is a great crime thriller if only because the actor in the lead role, Sophie Marceau, is beautiful. The French do some excellent crime movies.

    Daily Motion has some episodes of Low Winter Sun with good sound and resolution and no ads, e.g.

    Also, I recommend British Yesterdays and Daisy Mason on youtube for some excellent UK crime shows and thrillers.

    Babies born by C-section are 33% more likely to develop autism and face a higher risk of having ADHD, study claims

    You are supposed to have your head squashed repeatedly by a series of contractions going through a birth canal.
    It’s good for you.

    Boris needs to be seen in public smoking a cigar, flashing the “v” sign.

    Tommy Gun tucked under one arm would also be a nice touch!

    This is why any time you meet a libertarian, you should smash them repeatedly in the head with a horse’s collar to make the autism go away.

    It would be good to know how many of those classified as Iraqi refugees were part of the Ba’ath Party or members of the Ba’ath ruling minority.
