    Michael Obama will scare markets.

    Apparently Bernies’ backers want her,

  2. Arnost

    Be interesting to see the suicide figures plus attempts.

    On second thought – as these will be Covid related they will be classed in those stats. 🙂

  3. JC

    Ann Coulter needs to STFU.

    She appears to dump her men very quickly.

    Suicide is only important if a teen hears the mere mention of a same sex plebiscite. Other than that, it seems to die as an issue

    Anne Coulter is an attention seeking whore.
    In the bad way.
    Not the good Donald way.

    The left have been scraping the bottom of the barrel for leaders for years ,Obama. Corbyn , Krudster,Giliard ,hilarity , shorten ,Biden ,Albo . Just when you think they have reached peak stupid they keep digging . God alone knows who they will pick as Biden’s runnig mate ,they are probably feeling about in the dregs as we speak . It is important Joe is a prime candidate for aged care home as well as the Presidency .

    ITK, 11.22;

    Fantastic stuff by that young man.

    Perfectly encapsulates the pointless, shrieking impotence of the golf cart driving Karen.

    In the interests of continuous improvement, however:

    1. All concerned could have simultaneously conferred the middle finger on the shrieker;
    2. Those film making gents could have referred to the lady in question as a Karen.

    They’d have to be unbelievably prescient to call her “Karen”. The footage was shot in 2016. It just shows that there’s always been “Karens”; we now just have a convenient name for it.

    “Coronavirus Australia live news: Scott Morrison says reopening economy will be more difficult than closing it down:”
    No shit, Sherlock.

  9. Knuckle Dragger

    Liability Braden/Bob, 2.28 on why military history essays are worthy of PhDs, as opposed to real ones like Sydney Boy’s:

    ‘much of the “existing data” is mythology, collected, organised and presented to comply with a politically correct narrative.
    ‘Uncovering the truth and using forensic research to do so is adding to the sum total of human knowledge, and is therefore worthwhile.’

    Speaking of politically correct mythology, when questioned over having his SLR ‘locked and loaded’ when facing off with Charlie one time at band camp, the tard-herder-turned-tard came back with:

    1. ‘I write for an audience.’; and
    2. ‘I’ll call it what I like.’

    I wonder if that makes the final draft.

  10. jupes

    RoP men (Bulldogs supporters usually) don’t allow their women folk to have phones.

    Nor do they allow them to watch the footy.

  11. Cold-Hands

    God alone knows who they will pick as Biden’s running mate ,they are probably feeling about in the dregs as we speak .

    Given that Biden will either die, retire, or be 25th Amendmented out of Office within months if he’s ever elected, the Dem V-P pick is really their Presidential nominee.

  12. Infidel Tiger King

    Jeff Sessions is a cuck.

    He’s better than Tuberville.

    Trump is making a massive mistake.

  13. Eyrie

    “The best thing that could possible happen from this whole shit-show is that the Commonwealth of Australia dissolves.”

    With the “leadership” or rather lack thereof recently from the Feds I’d say it has already effectively happened.

  14. feelthebern

    Sessions needs to grovel before the God King & ask for his forgiveness.

  15. Confused Olsd Misfit

    Trump is making a massive mistake.

    Why?

    Snowflakes of the world unite!

    COVID-19 has left me with major return anxiety

    As soon as COVID-19 restrictions came in to place a few months ago I was all over them like a rash.

    In fact, I was so over them that I removed my children from school prior to the state government closing schools down and I requested to work from home before my workplace was really offering that as an option.

    I did this for two reasons: Because the microscopic beast that is COVID-19 completely terrified me and because my elderly mother lives with us and I was concerned for her health.

    As my family and I got used to the new normal of self-isolating, we clambered our way over the hurdles of remote learning and working from home and adhered to all of the medical and government restrictions and advice stipulated.

    We only ventured out of the home for essential items, and even then, I usually made my husband go alone. I figured it was better to have just one of us out in the potential germ war zone risking literal life (thanks, love).

    But now as restrictions have relaxed, school is going back, which means students (my kids) and school staff (me) will leave the safe confines of home.

    Yet, we’re expected to pretend we aren’t the sacrificial lambs being herded into what I am doing my best to pretend is not in fact an abattoir disguised as a classroom.

    But despite what happens when we are back, one thing is for certain, right now there is a dark, grey cloud of unknown hanging over my head because I am struggling with ‘return anxiety.’

    Yes, return anxiety, the fear of going back into the world I used to know, and it’s making what many may find straightforward completely overwhelming.

    For months we have been asked to avoid leaving the house. We’ve been bombarded with messages telling us not to do it – even the little carrier message on our mobile phones told us to stay at home.

    We were told by politicians, medical officers, doctors, celebrities on social media, to only go out for essential items, to social distance, to not touch your face, to enter here and exit there, to avoid crowded areas, to use sanitiser, how to wash your hands, to do this, definitely don’t do that and to avoid joggers at all costs.

    Well, I listened to this and I listened good.

    So good that not only do I have anxiety about returning to the ‘real world’ but I have a fear of going out anywhere (FOGO) because that’s the thing about COVID-19, it could be … anywhere.

    Whenever I have made the (possibly foolish) gamble to leave my home and I hear someone sniff the tiniest sniffle or even clear their throat my ears spike up like a rabbit who has suspected imminent danger. Every sense is heightened, and my instinctual urge is to run away as fast as humanly possible.

    In fact, these restrictions are now so embedded within my brain that sometimes I find myself stepping back so I am a metre and a half away from my own children.

    We are now being told that we’ve flattened the curve, we deserve an early mark, we can start getting back to school, to work in some cases and with extra hand washing, social distancing between adults and common sense, that we will be safe.

    But hang on a minute.

    Yes, we have been making progress which is great. But that little spiky, red germy ball that is COVID-19 is still there, spreading from one McDonalds to another and now you want me to go back to school and back to work and believe in our heart of hearts that we will be okay?

    Well it ain’t a switch. Not for all of us.

    You can’t ask everyone to make something a new normal and then go and switch it back like it’s a brand substitution on our online grocery order.

    For many, like me, to leave the house, to ‘re-enter’ the outside world is absolutely anxiety inducing.

    Because surely we are going to see an increase in cases of the virus, the one that has no vaccine or cure, the one that has killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world and for some of us, like me, this knowledge is scary.

    So, while there may be an abundance of hand sanitiser, the spreading out of desks and an increase of vigilance with most of us, I do fear for the other major implication of this pandemic: our FOGO, our ‘re-enter anxiety’, our mental health?

    Jesus Christ the comment moderators at the Oz are a bunch of hand-wringing soft-cocks. Posted this command on the article about the seek.com founder making some bullshit claim that the US could be a dictatorship by Nov for it to be rejected.

    What absolute nonsense from yet another elitist claiming the sky is falling because they can’t understand why the ordinary punter doesn’t agree with their supposed betters on something or other, this time on who should be President.

    On what possible basis is this clown claiming that the President of the United States would betray his oath of office where he swore to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.

    Let’s blame China

    Much of the western media is behaving like a subsidiary of the Chinese Communist party

    Is Cui Tiankai, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, Hillary Clinton in drag? I ask because when he takes to the pages of the Washington Post to lecture us that ‘It is time to end the blame game’ with respect to China’s role in helping to spread the coronavirus, I could almost believe I was back at that Congressional hearing after Muslim lunatics attacked the American consulate in Benghazi and murdered four Americans, including the US ambassador. The dulcet strains of the then Secretary of State Clinton skirling ‘at this point what difference does it make?’ are ringing in my ears. It’s ‘time to move on’, she said later, just as China’s ambassador half-pleaded, half-warned about the ‘mindset’ urging a ‘decoupling’ of America from China. ‘The United States would not emerge as a winner from this scenario,’ he said.

    Ambassador Cui writes that: ‘China has done its best to share information about the virus.’ Ha, ha, ha. In fact, it dissembled about the nature of the virus, obscuring the date of the first cases, insisting that there was no human-to-human transmission, even as, in mid-January, it ordered its consulates around the world to stock up on face masks and other protective gear in anticipation of a global outbreak. Chinese doctors and scientists who tried to sound the alarm early on suddenly disappeared, even as the regime destroyed evidence and stonewalled requests from western scientists for firsthand information about the earliest victims. Ambassador Cui is paid to lie for his country. We do not have to be naive and believe him.

    But many of us do. Much of the western media is behaving like the World Health Organization, i.e., like a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chinese Communist party.

  19. JC

    Coulter reckons Sessions had no choice but to recuse himself from the Wussiagate hoax. I think that’s bullshit, but in any event, he could have slowed the thing down until he found a replacement for Rosenstein and then went off on leave.

    National Sorry Day.
    On reflection I might owe a few people here an expression of sorrow.

    1735099.
    I am sorry I joined the pile-on calling him anti-cementic. I had no idea what he was saying about Israel and the Choos, so have no idea if he is anti-cementic or not. And sorry for calling him spud-peeler. I accept his assertion that he has never picked up a vegetable peeler in his life. And also sorry about the MX5. That’s not an apology. I just say sorry to anyone who owns an MX5.
    mOnty.
    Sorry for the fat-shaming. If you aspire to be the tenth planet in the solar system I respect that.
    Sinc.
    For calling him a bald headed flog. I know, I know, truth is a defence in defamation cases, but I still should not of said it.
    Des Deskperson.
    For ridiculing his demands that all public servants have proper office chairs at home. If this issue can’t be raised on Australia’s leading ergonomics blog, where else can it be?
    Calli
    For calling her Chancy Gardener. Uncalled for.
    Ocean cruisers.
    To all ocean going cruisers, past, present and emerging. I am truly sorry.

    Rosé drinkers.
    I am sorry for suggesting a causal link either way from the correlation between rosé consumption and homosexuality. The science is not settled.

    I think that pretty much covers anyone here who is due a sorry from me. However, if anyone feels aggrieved and I have not apologised, please re-post the offending comment in full and I will give it due consideration.

    More from The New York Times

    Revisionists at it again: The ‘1619 Project’ is bad history fueled by bad motives

    Well, the revisionists are at it again. Similar grift, similar bad history and similar bad motives. But this time it’s worse, the long-term effect more pernicious.

    Earlier this month, Nikole Hannah-Jones of The New York Times was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for commentary “For a sweeping, provocative and personal essay for the ground-breaking 1619 Project, which seeks to place the enslavement of Africans at the center of America’s story, prompting public conversation about the nation’s founding and evolution.”

    At the heart of Mrs. Hannah-Jones‘ project is the explicit claim that the true history of America did not start in 1776, but in 1619, the year when the first slaves arrived to the colonies. Instead of taking our bearings from the eternal truths enshrined in the Declaration (“all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”), she argues that slavery is the lens through which all of America’s successes and failures, every single thing that defines us, good and bad, must be understood.

    Mrs. Hannah-Jones applies her argument to Revolution, claiming that the colonists fought for independence on the grounds that an America untethered from Britain would allow the institution of slavery to flourish. This assertion is so wrong, so factually inaccurate, that leading historians (Mrs. Hannah-Jones is a journalist) of both conservative and liberal persuasions, systematically went through her research and found no evidence supporting her contention. (They did, however, find a trove of historical inaccuracies and distortions.)

    Now, Mrs. Hannah-Jones is an ideologue. The truth and falsity of her “Project” does not, one suspects, interest her (or The New York Times) in the least. She cares about making a political splash, self-aggrandizement and righting historical wrongs on her own terms. This is disgusting as it lamentable, and all the more so since the suffering and story of black Americans doubtless deserves to be told honestly and more loudly.

  34. Arnost

    Coulter is right [she very often is – and has the runs on the board for people to listen carefully to her]

    Trump is being blinded by the fact that Sessions let him down. Tuberville may have same problems that Judge Moore had [skeletons in the wife’s closet] and now he’s fighting an incumbent that hasn’t done anything wrong (apart from being a Democritter). And Tuberville is a bit of a RINO … he is pro open borders and fundamentally opposed to Trump’s patriot position on the border. With the WuFlu sentiment around – that may count against him regardless of Trump’s endorsement.

    I think that Sessions can win easier – and retire to the Senate so to speak. He seems ultimately to be a honourable (if maybe weak) man.

    Biden Has Already Lost on China

    No way out on this one for him.

    Joe Biden will lose the election on China. America is a divided nation on seemingly every issue, but increasingly unified in opposition to China. But because Biden cannot join this unity of opposition, he is ceding this lopsided issue to President Trump.

    For America, coronavirus has crystallized years of bad Chinese behavior. Almost 100,000 deaths, 1.7 million cases, 39 million lost jobs, and a locked-down nation have brought back to mind all China’s committed, but overlooked, sins.

    Last week, the administration delivered to Congress a 16-page letter, which dispassionately outlined China’s past and ongoing transgressions. It puts them into three main categories: China’s challenges to America’s economy, security, and values. It also makes clear that, in contrast with previous administrations, China’s behavior will no longer be accepted: “The Administration’s approach to the PRC reflects a fundamental reevaluation of how the United States understands and responds to the leaders of the world’s most populous country and second largest national economy.”

    Biden is prevented from joining America’s growing animosity toward China, while Trump is more than able and willing to do so.

    Negative as the White House letter is, it may be less so than the American people’s feelings about China. A February Gallup poll (conducted 2/3-16) found Americans had a 33 to 67 percent favorable/unfavorable view of China. That yawning negative 34 percent gap was double Gallup’sFebruary 2019’s negative 16 percent.

    One in five English people believe COVID is a Jewish conspiracy – survey

    One in five English people believe that Jews created COVID-19 to collapse the economy for financial gain, a newly-released study by a team of researchers at the University of Oxford has revealed.
    The finding came as part of a wider survey in attitudes toward the virus and the measures taken to prevent its spread, which found that there was a strong undercurrent of mistrust over official advice on the virus within the public.
    “Increasingly as the lockdown has gone on the signs of conspiracy beliefs forming has become greater,” study leader Daniel Freeman told The Jerusalem Post. “In the UK there has even been the setting fire of mobile phone masks linked to a particular coronavirus conspiracy belief. We were most interested to see if the conspiracy beliefs led to people disregarding the important public health measures to reduce the epidemic.

    Trump Must Name Special Counsel on Obamagate

    The unravelling of the Obama administration’s Russia Hoax sped up exponentially in the last two weeks, as the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn collapsed and the acting director of national intelligence declassified Obama-era documents that revealed a concerted effort to undermine the incoming Trump administration.

    But despite substantial evidence of malfeasance by not just President Obama, but also by then-FBI Director James Comey and Susan Rice (Flynn’s predecessor as national security adviser), among others, there is growing concern that nothing will ever happen to bring to justice the conspirators in what President Trump calls Obamagate.

    That concern was highlighted last week by Attorney General William Barr’s pronouncement that both Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden were off-limits.

    “As to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Barr said regarding U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”

    So just hold on a minute. Obama and Biden could get off scot-free “whatever their level of involvement”? Why is that? And if the attorney general is afraid to look at wrongdoing at the highest level, how can he be expected to put the Constitution first?

    So much expertise & research, yet unaware of President Lincoln in 1863 & President Johnson in 1865 pardoning all Confederate armed forces.

    You imbecile, if Lincoln pardoned them, what was the purpose of the pardon if not taking up arms against the United States? Were they Russian spies even then.

    A presidential pardon doesn’t absolve one from having committed a crime as that would be a complete exoneration. A pardon is forgiveness. Now go clean the bar.

  51. Mark A

    Stickler eat your heart out, this is flying at its best.

  52. JC

    Does a pardon admit guilt?

    Yep, according to the Supreme Court, it does.

    The Supreme Court stated in Burdick v. United States that acceptance of a pardon carries an “imputation of guilt” and is a confession to such guilt.

    Nunes: GOP Lawmakers Expanding Investigation Into Special Counsel Operation, “We Will Be Making Criminal Referrals of the Mueller Team”

    Ranking member of the House Intel Committee, Devin Nunes revealed GOP lawmakers will be making criminal referrals of Mueller’s team as well as officials at the DOJ and FBI that were above Mueller.

    “We’ve also expanded our investigation into the Mueller team and everything that happened with Mueller and the people at DOJ and FBI that were above Mueller. And so, we will be making criminal referrals in the coming weeks against the Mueller team. We’re just now putting that together and, of course, as always, waiting on more documents that we really need to come out,” Nunes told Fox News host Gregg Jarrett Sunday evening.

    Nunes argued that Mueller should have immediately shut down his operation because he knew the dossier had been debunked by the FBI and that there was no coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

  56. cohenite

    Tommy Tuberville has the best name of any GOP candidate. I’m still waiting for evidence he’s pro-chunk and open borders. Sessions is pure swamp; he stabbed the Don in the back and he knew when he recused, which he did 2 months after being appointed, that Rosenstein would take over.

    “There are people coming across the border that need jobs. And we want them to come over here,” Tuberville said. “We just want to know who’s here. Put the wall up, then we let them come in and become citizens like we all became a citizen.”

    Tuberville also made the distinction that he does not agree with “everything [Trump does],” specifically when it comes to trade. In regards to Trump’s handling of China, Tuberville said, “I’m not really for that.”

  73. Ed Case

    From The Atlantic:
    *** Republicans start at a disadvantage. They’re defending nearly twice as many seats as their opposition while holding a narrow 53–47 majority. Democrats need to pick up three seats should Joe Biden defeat Trump. (Biden’s future vice president would cast any tie-breaking votes.) If the president wins, Democrats would need to gain four seats to take control. Some of the party’s juiciest targets are GOP senators from battleground states where Trump appears most vulnerable: Cory Gardner of Colorado, Martha McSally of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine, and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Polling shows that Trump is trailing Biden in each of the four except North Carolina, where he leads by only a point.***

    Coulter reckons Sessions had no choice but to recuse himself from the Wussiagate hoax. I think that’s bullshit, but in any event, he could have slowed the thing down until he found a replacement for Rosenstein and then went off on leave.

    I don’t understand. Didn’t President Trump nominate Rosenstein? I know he ended up being a Quisling, but no one knew that when Sessions recused himself.

  80. Arnost

    You also have to remember that the media holds onto the dirt until after the nomination and only then does it come out when there is no recourse or withdrawal. If Tuberville gets the nomination, then expect him to have the carpetbagger, non state resident, wife a murderer etc etc to all come pouring out. I’m sure that there will be some hard done kids who got cut from his teams to come up with more dirt.

    Jeff Sessions is honourable and liked. And [apart from his cuck as AG] is very Pro Trump and his agenda. And is generally very popular and a known quantity. And that counts for a lot.

Just one of those cases was later recategorised as a confirmed case.

    For America, coronavirus has crystallized years of bad Chinese behavior. Almost 100,000 deaths, 1.7 million cases, 39 million lost jobs, and a locked-down nation have brought back to mind all China’s committed, but overlooked, sins.

    Let’s add some more transgressions to that from just the last month or so:
    -formally incorporating annexed S.China Sea islands into PRC administrative zones (and sinking VN patrol boats)
    -tearing up the Sino-British treaty on HK and abolishing One Country Two Systems there
    -transferring about 200,000 Uyghurs into indentured labour for various corporations around the PRC
    -invading India (!)

    I mean the last point has been a particular WTF moment even by China standards, but there it is.

    The Prime Minister said the drop in migration was one of the “concerning economic figures” facing the government.

    He still hasn’t got the message. Various polls and surveys point to Australians wanted lower intake. No doubt the government will endeavour to restore migration to its previous levels. If we have to rely on migration at that level to maintain our GDP we have serious economic problems.

    I don’t understand the logic of pouring money into housing projects when we know there is going to be a huge drop in migrant numbers in the coming years. Why housing? If anything shouldn’t the government be throwing money at business start ups and R&D?

    By Christopher Walsh
    Posted 19 March 2019

    What about Andrew Robb?

    Former federal trade minister Andrew Robb took an annual $880,000 job with Landbridge after leaving federal parliament.

    Many Curious Darwin readers asked how Mr Robb was involved in the port deal.

    By all accounts, he wasn’t involved with Landbridge in late 2015 when the deal went through, and the federal cabinet was not aware of the deal until hours before then-chief minister Adam Giles announced it publicly in November 2015’

    Wikipedia:

    ‘In October 2015, the Chinese-owned Landbridge Group won the bid for a lease of Port Darwin. The Northern Territory Government granted the company a 99-year lease for A$506 million.[2][3] The contract price is more than 25 times the profit the port had earned over the preceding two years, and Landbridge also promised to invest A$200 million over a 25-year period.[4]

    Shandong Landbridge Group is a privately-held company with headquarters in the city of Rizhao, Shandong Province, China, which is owned by Ye Cheng, a billionaire with close ties to the Chinese government and the Communist Party of China.’

    Barr did this when he announced last week that neither Obama nor Joe Biden were subjects of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the origins of the phony Russian collusion probe.

    Barr said: “As of President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their involvement based on what I know, I don’t expect Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man.

    Barr made clear, however, that he was not interested in a “a tit-for-tat exercise” where one administration investigates another seeking retribution. As long as he is attorney general, he said, “the criminal justice system will not be used for partisan, political ends.”

    That’s the left……they water down everything. It reminds me of their arguments about abortion twenty and thirty years ago…that abortion should be “safe, legal and rare” but now, of course, they argue that a woman has a right to terminate a pregnancy up until birth.

    I was told that “the left” 100 years ago were against abortion. They said that men would just use it as a form of birth control

    The point is if the wrongful conviction rate is sufficiently high, the deterrence effect completely goes, let alone ideas of vengeance and proportionality.

    It’s not the prospect of being wrongfully convicted that deters a murderer. It’s the prospect of being rightfully convicted. And it’s not about vengeance, it’s about justice. They are very different.

    Mr Morrison, who said migration of between 160,000 and 210,000 was generally needed for Australia to maintain its GDP-per-capita growth, expects total migrant numbers in 2020-21 to slump to 34,000.
    The Prime Minister said the drop in migration was one of the “concerning economic figures” facing the government.

    I have been trying not to swear but what the F…… is this guy thinking! We’ve had years of almost the highest (if not the highest ) per capita immigration in the world and our GDP per capita is going nowhere. He is a flog, a total [email protected]*g flog.

    FULL BLOWN BORDER WAR: UNAPOLOGETIC ANNA UNDER ATTACK
    A fired-up Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has come out all guns blazing in the border war saying she has ‘sleepless nights’ about the impact on the economy but will not be bullied to reopen the state. It comes as she faces another barrage of attacks.

    Australia has one of the worst GDP per-capita growth records in the entire OECD. It’s absolutely abysmal.

    So does that mean we’re in for negative growth until immigration restarts and goes back up to between 160,000 and 210,000?

    The increase in the first home owner grant scheme is money that goes into the pocket of developers, it jacks the price up. So many politicians invest in housing so we shouldn’t be surprised they wish to keep that Ponzi scheme going.

    Scoop: Inside the secret talks to overhaul the GOP platform

    For the past six months, top Trump campaign officials, reporting to Jared Kushner, have been working on a radical overhaul of the Republican Party platform.

    Driving the news: The Trump campaign’s Bill Stepien has been leading the process, working with campaign colleagues and the Republican National Committee. As with all significant campaign matters, they’ve been reporting back to Kushner.

    The president’s son-in-law and top adviser has told confidants he wants to shrink the GOP’s extensive platform of policy beliefs and principles down to a single card that fits in people’s pockets. That’s a huge change. The 2016 platform runs 58 pages — the product of extensive debate and heated negotiations.
    Kushner told colleagues he wanted “something like the 10 principles we believe in,” per two sources familiar with his comments. He asked Stepien to find historical examples of Republican platforms that look more like a “mission statement,” per a source familiar with one of their meetings.
    Another source familiar with the discussions pointed to the GOP platform of 1856 as an example of a platform that is similarly short. The source used this example to argue that the idea of a one-page platform isn’t so new or radical after all.
    Behind the scenes: At noon on Dec. 19, 2019, Kushner shared some of his thinking with colleagues in the Secretary of War Suite in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the West Wing of the White House.

    From his seat at the center of a long table, Kushner told senior White House and campaign staff that more of their policies should be drawing people to the party, so they ought to eliminate alienating language.
    As an example of language that would alienate voters, Kushner said that he didn’t want to see anything about “gay conversion therapy” in the 2020 Republican platform.

    The 2016 Republican platform did not explicitly mention gay conversion therapy, but it included this line: “We support the right of parents to determine the proper medical treatment and therapy for their minor children.”
    Gay Republicans were furious because they viewed it, accurately, as a coded endorsement for the widely condemned practice that’s rejected by major medical associations and whose use on minors is banned in many states and some other countries.
    Kushner also argued against rebranding “School Choice” as “Education Freedom Scholarships,” because he said the latter phrase doesn’t resonate with African Americans.
    Two sources said they recalled Kushner making a more sweeping point — that they should rethink using the word “freedom” altogether in the GOP platform because polling showed it doesn’t appeal to African Americans. But another source familiar with the Dec. 19 meeting pushed back adamantly against this.
    The source said the only context in which Kushner argued against using the word “freedom” was in the context of rebranding “school choice.” The source added that “freedom’s a great word” and “should be smartly utilized” in the 2020 Republican platform.
    (The Trump administration had been using the phrase “Education Freedom Scholarships” since at least February 2019 — more than nine months before this meeting.)

    The facts
    1 On 27 March 2003 I allowed the appellant’s appeal, and entered a judgment of acquittal in his favour. I did not at that time deliver reasons for judgment. These are my reasons for the orders which I then made.

    2 Mr Hall, the appellant, was charged on a complaint alleging that on 4 July 2002 he, not being a person exempted under s 10 of the Weapons Act, without lawful excuse possessed a controlled weapon. Although it was not particularised in the complaint, it is plain that the prosecution case was that the weapon in question was an oleoresin capsicum spray, which by virtue of Sch 2 of the Weapons Regulations 1999 is a controlled weapon. The evidence which was accepted by his Worship was broadly to the effect that the appellant had in his possession at the relevant time a spray canister labelled “Pepper Spray” and referred to by the appellant as “Pepper Spray”. The appellant had had occasion to use it previously.
