    The Real Reason The US Wants To Ban TikTok



    American hypocrisy on TikTok is thicker than I thought.

    Edit: Turns out, it is all about controlling the news you and I receive. In other words: Controlling the media. Something America does well.

    How liberal comedians became lap dogs for establishment power



    Our media hate machine at work.

    This is why I quit watching every single late night show.

    Wolves travel in packs. Hopefully it has family to avenge it.

    I remember a case in California. An 83 year old woman living alone in an apartment. Some would be burglar thought old lady alone, easy target.
    Turned out woman was California state champion senior body builder. She whacked him with one of her dumbbells and called police.

    Tough to swing a dumbbell considering she was handcuffed after having been hit in the head while sleeping.

    Also, the attacker in the more recent case had a gun. I wouldn't recommend bringing a dumbbell to a gun fight, but certainly if it's all you have it's better than nothing.

    Kari Lake suggests supporters 'strap on a Glock' to be ready for 2024
    Lake told people that “the next six months is going to be intense” and urged attendees to be “ready for action,” calling out to military and law enforcement veterans in the crowd.

    LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. — Arizona GOP Senate hopeful Kari Lake told supporters they can "strap on a Glock" to be prepared for the intensity of the 2024 campaign and urged military and law enforcement veterans to be "ready," as her race heats up in a key battleground state.

    “We need to send people to Washington, D.C., that the swamp does not want there,” Lake said toward the end of a Sunday speech to a crowd of Arizonans in Mohave County. “And I can think of a couple people they don’t want there. First on that list is Donald J. Trump; second is Kari Lake.”


    She described standing up to the “swamp” in Washington, saying: “They can’t bribe me, they can blackmail me. That’s what they don’t want me in Washington, D.C. And that’s exactly what President Trump wants me they’re fighting with him.”

    “He’s willing to sacrifice everything I am. That’s why they’re coming after us with lawfare, they’re going to come after us with everything. That’s why the next six months is going to be intense. And we need to strap on our — let’s see. What do we want to strap on?” Lake asked as some in the crowd chuckled. “We’re going to strap on our, our seat belt. We’re going to put on our helmet or your Kari Lake ball cap. We are going to put on the armor of God. And maybe strap on a Glock on the side of us just in case.”

    “We’re not going to be the victims of crime,” Lake continued. “We’re not going to have our Second Amendment taken away. We’re certainly not going to have our First Amendment taken away by these tyrants.”

    Earlier in the roughly 30-minute remarks, Lake gave another warning about the period between now and Election Day.

    “The next six months are going to be difficult. If you are not ready for action, and I have a feeling with as many veterans and former law enforcement, active law enforcement” — Lake paused to ask for a show of hands — “… you guys are ready for it,” Lake said to her supporters. “It’s going to be a crazy run, the next six months. This is the moment we have to save our country.”

    Lake’s campaign declined to comment when asked to clarify the point of her remarks and whether she was implying there might be political violence in the next six months.

    While Lake didn’t explicitly warn of political violence, that’s how one of her supporters took her rhetoric.

    “They’re gonna do everything they can to disrupt the election, whether it’s another pandemic, whether it’s going to be inciting the civil war,” said Geenee Roe, 63, when asked about Lake’s speech afterward. The event included a raffle of an AR-15-style rifle.

    Louisiana lawmakers vote to remove lunch breaks for child workers, cut unemployment benefits
    A House committee approved the bill along with others to reduce unemployment benefits and workers' compensation wages.

    A Louisiana House committee voted Thursday to repeal a law requiring employers to give child workers lunch breaks and to cut unemployment benefits — part of a push by Republicans to remove constraints on employers and reduce aid for injured and unemployed workers.

    The House Labor and Industrial Relations panel advanced the child labor legislation, House Bill 156, along with House Bill 119, which would slash the amount of time for which people can collect unemployment aid. A third bill the committee approved, House Bill 529, would change how workers' compensation wages are calculated in ways that could reduce benefits received by some injured laborers.

    The bills, which head to the full House, are part of a broad effort by Republicans to weaken labor unions and strengthen employers' hands in Louisiana. They are aligned with steps other Republican-led legislatures have taken in recent years, and on Thursday, GOP lawmakers attributed the moves to Gov. Jeff Landry's directive to "reform" the business environment and remove bureaucratic red tape.

    First-term state Rep. Roger Wilder, R-Denham Springs, who sponsored the child labor measure and owns Smoothie King franchises across the Deep South, said he filed the bill in part because children want to work without having to take lunch breaks. He questioned why Louisiana has the requirement while other states where he owns Smoothie King locations, such as Mississippi, don't have them, and criticized people who have questioned the bill's purpose.

    Children don't want lunch breaks. Of course not. They love being hungry. But please, another tax cuts for the rich.
