Florida City Warns Of ‘Zombie Activity’ In Power Outage Alert

Bad enough dodging the blue hairs from New York in the passing lane with the left blinker on.

Via Fox News:

A South Florida city warned thousands of residents of “extreme zombie activity” in an alert over the weekend about a widespread power outage.

“Power outage and zombie alert for residents of Lake Worth and Terminus,” residents were told in an alert sent around 1:45 a.m. Sunday, according to a Palm Beach Post report Monday. The paper reported that Terminus may have been a reference to the zombie TV show “The Walking Dead.”

“There are now far less than seven thousand three hundred and eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity,” the notification said, according to the paper.

Lake Worth Live, a community Facebook page, said an update from the city indicated the message was unintended, the paper reported.

“We are looking into reports that the system mentioned zombies,” Lake Worth spokesman Ben Kerr said in the post.

“I want to reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently and apologize for the system message.”

Transgender Files $50,000 Complaint Because Muslim Woman Refuses to Wax Genitals

Bake that cake!

Via Patheos:

A female Muslim employee of a salon refused to wax the genitals of a man, because her religion prohibits her not to physically touch the private area of a male outside her family. I say “male,” because I’m using the traditional sense of the word… meaning the person has a penis. He is under the impression that he’s a female, because he identifies as such.

Yet, there are certain biological realities that this Muslim employee recognizes which he apparently does not. Powerline reports:

Earlier this month, a male-to-female transgender filed a $50,000 human rights complaint after a Muslim woman refused to perform a Brazilian wax on his genitals. …

“She never once asked for a leg wax [from] us,” Max Wax manager, president and CEO Jason Carruthers told PJ Media. “She said, ‘Women have penises and women have balls and if your staff is not comfortable they can look for another job.’”

Given A Formal Say, Black Lives Matter Issues Demands To Reform Chicago Police Department

Via Daily Wire:

A community-based coalition headlined by Black Lives Matter recently issued a litany of demands to government officials as they negotiate court-ordered oversight policies to reform the Chicago Police Department (CPD).

The 127-page manifesto released last week outlines sweeping recommendations that the Mayor’s Office and Illinois Attorney General must “meaningfully review and consider,” according to an agreement filed in federal court earlier this year. Suggested procedural changes include removing police officers from public schools, reducing the use of force, and eliminating racism and gender-based discrimination the coalition says its members have long endured.

NFL Announces Proposed Penalty For Kneeling For Anthem – The Fans Are Pissed

Via Daily Caller:

NFL owners are proposing that teams meet in the locker rooms before the anthem in order to decide if they wish to take the field for the song. If they decide to, they will be penalized 15 yards for each player who kneels.

The proposed deliberation and penalties were reported first by Sports Illustrated.

The in-game penalty proposed by NFL owners came during a three-hour session of conversation between owners and family members in Atlanta. The anthem protests led to the most controversial season in recent NFL history, where players and team owners fought with angry fans and the President of the United States over the unpopular protests.

Watch: CNN Guest Says If Democrats Are ‘Going To Shoot Trump…Shoot To Kill’

This guy is supposed to be a law professor but he’s constantly wrong both factually and legally.

Via Daily Wire:

On Monday, Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe made a reference to shooting and killing President Donald Trump when he joined CNN’s “New Day” to discuss what the Democrats need to do if they want to impeach Trump.

Talking about the book Tribe co-authored, “To End A Presidency: The Power Of Impeachment,” CNN’s Chris Cuomo noted it warns that “Democrats shouldn’t be rushing down the road of impeachment.”

Venezuelans Buy Bus Tickets Out After Maduro Win

Via Daily Wire:

Now that Socialist President Nicolas Maduro has won re-election and a “mandate” to continue destroying Venezuela for another six years, citizens are buying bus tickets for a mass exodus.

According to Reuters, some Venezuelans have saved for as many as eight months to buy a bus ticket out of the country. Tickets are 1.4 million Bolivars each (around $17.50 USD), more than what some people make in a month in the socialist paradise.

Speaking with Reuters, a nurse named Betsabeth Casique described the fury she and others felt upon Maduro’s re-election, an event that opposition and foreign governments have called illegitimate. “That was the straw that broke the camel’s back, what pushed me to do it faster,” said Casique, 29.

Left-Leaning Poll Has Really Bad News For Democrats In 2018 Midterms

They are going to have a complete meltdown if they don’t win the House.

Via https://www.dailywire.com/news/30950/backlash-left-leaning-poll-has-really-bad-news-ryan-saavedra

A new poll released on Monday from a left-leaning news publication showed that the Democrats are paying dearly for their disastrous week last week where they lied about President Donald Trump’s comments regarding violent MS-13 gang members.

The Reuters Poll revealed that the double-digit lead that the Democrats held over Republicans last month in generic ballot voting for the 2018 midterms among registered voters is now completely gone as Republicans have opened up a six-point lead over the Democrats.

The poll, for the week ending on May 20, shows Republicans at 40.7 percent with Democrats falling down to 34.5 percent. This is the first time Republicans have taken the lead in Reuters’ poll in approximately a year.

Clapper Was ‘Thinking Of Something Else’ When He Lied To Congress

Thinking of how to stay out of jail.

Via Daily Caller:

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper claimed Tuesday that he “made a mistake,” but that he didn’t lie when he told Sen. Ron Wyden in 2013 that the National Security Agency doesn’t collect data on Americans.

Clapper was defending himself on “The View” after President Donald Trump called him a “lying machine.”

A report from The Guardian later that year showed that Clapper’s statement was false, that the NSA does collect phone metadata on millions of Americans.

The Real Origination Story of the Trump-Russia Investigation

Hint: it wasn’t when they say, and they were spying on people before then.

Via NRO:

The Trump-Russia investigation did not originate with Carter Page or George Papadopoulos. It originated with the Obama administration.

Exactly when is the “late Spring”?

Of all the questions that have been asked about what we’ve called the “Origination Story” of the Trump-Russia investigation, that may be the most important one. It may be the one that tells us when the Obama administration first formed the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative.

See, it has always been suspicious that the anonymous current and former government officials who leak classified information to their media friends have been unable to coordinate their spin on the start of “Crossfire Hurricane” — the name the FBI eventually gave its Trump-Russia investigation.

The Original Origination Story: Carter Page

First, they told us it was an early July 2016 trip to Moscow by Carter Page, an obscure Trump-campaign adviser.

As we’ve observed, that story became untenable once a connection emerged between the Bureau’s concerns about Page and the Steele dossier. The dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, portrayed Page’s Moscow trip as seminal to a Trump-Russia conspiracy to hack Democratic email accounts and steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

It turned out, however, that the dossier was a Clinton-campaign opposition-research project, the main allegations of which were based on third-hand hearsay from anonymous Russian sources. Worse, though the allegations could not be verified, the Obama Justice Department and the FBI used them to obtain surveillance warrants against Page, in violation of their own guidelines against presenting unverified information to the FISA court. Worse still, the Obama Justice Department withheld from the FISA court the facts that the Clinton campaign was behind the dossier and that Steele had been booted from the investigation for lying to the FBI.

Publix Wouldn’t Write ‘Summa Cum Laude’ On Graduation Cake Due To ‘Profanity’

WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) — The signs of a graduation party are still left around the house of the Koscinski family.

Jacob graduated Saturday with the highest honors from a Christian-based home-schooling program. So, his mom ordered a cake.

“He did not know we were getting a cake because he’s not a big cake eater. So we were all standing there waiting to see it and when we opened it, it was a huge shock to all of us,” said Cara Koscinski.

She explained how she ordered the 3/4 inch sheet cake online through Publix.

But when she requested the bakery include Jacob’s honor, she was alerted that profane or special characters weren’t allowed. Cara clarified her request with special instructions.
“The website had censored me and this is a website that you can refer to for the Latin term for Summa Cum Laude which means highest honors,” she said.

Law Firm Of Stormy Daniels’ Attorney Hit With $10-million Judgment, Avenatti Also In Default For Back Taxes

Via Los Angeles Times:

The law firm of adult film star Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, was hit with a $10-million judgment Tuesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court after he broke his promise to pay $2 million to a former colleague.

Judge Catherine Bauer of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Santa Ana ordered the Eagan Avenatti law firm to pay the $10 million to Jason Frank, a lawyer who used to work at the Newport Beach firm.

“At this point, that’s what’s appropriate,” Bauer said at a brief hearing.

To settle his law firm’s bankruptcy, Avenatti had personally guaranteed that the $2 million would be paid to Frank last week, but both he and his firm failed to turn over the money.

Think you’re too cool for old-school? Experience and relive the glory days of Las Vegas.

At the hearing, the U.S. Justice Department revealed that Avenatti has also defaulted on just over $440,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest that he had personally promised to pay the Internal Revenue Service under another bankruptcy settlement for his law firm.

Assistant U.S. Atty. Najah Shariff told the judge that the federal government would soon file a motion demanding payment.

Under the Jan. 30 bankruptcy settlement, Avenatti personally agreed to pay the IRS $2.4 million in back taxes, penalties and interest, court records show.

Nearly $1.3 million of that was for payroll taxes that his law firm withheld from employees, but did not turn over to the government.

Publix Grocery In Charleston, SC Censored ‘Summa Cum Laude’ On Graduation Cake

Someone with a degree in women’s studies is decorating cakes at Publix.

Via Charleston Post and Courier:

Saturday was Jacob Kosinski’s big day. His whole family, many from out of town, saw the Charleston, South Carolina, student graduate from his Christian-based homeschool program with a 4.79 grade point average and the coveted honor of summa cum laude.

His mother, Cara Koscinski organized a graduation party for her 18-year-old son. For the occasion, she ordered a cake online from her nearest grocery store, Publix, which lets customers build their own cakes complete with a customized inscription, which they enter into a little message box.

Carefully, she typed in the message she wanted on the cake: “Congrats Jacob! Summa Cum Laude class of 2018.”

The Publix software was unhappy with the word – cum. In Latin, cum is the preposition “with,” as in summa cum laude “with the highest distinction.” To the little box on the Publix website, however, the word meant something else and its sophisticated algorithm, alert for naughty words, returned a little message that said “profane/special characters not allowed.” It substituted three hyphens for “cum.”

But there was still hope. The Publix form included a section for “special instructions” for the bakery, in which Koscinski explained that Summa Cum Laude was a Latin term for high academic honor and was not profane. She included a link to a website explaining the meaning of Summa Cum Laude and said she didn’t think much about it afterward.

Koscinski said she was so busy preparing things for the celebration, that she sent her husband and sister to the store to get some last minute items and to pick up the cake.

When they returned, everyone gathered around the cake. When they opened the box, there it was: “Congrats Jacob! Summa – Laude Class of 2018.”

Jacob was “absolutely humiliated,” Koscinski said to The Post. “It was unbelievable. I ordered the special graduation edition cake. I can’t believe I’m the first one to ever write “Summa Cum Laude” on a cake.

Koscinski said she then had to explain why the grocery store censored “cum” from Jacob’s cake to her 70-year-old mother while Jacob’s friends laughed uncontrollably.

MS-13 Gang Member Nicknamed “Animal” Sentenced To 40 Years For Murder…

Nancy Pelosi unavailable for comment.

Via Washington Times:

An MS-13 member who goes by the gang name “Animal” received a 40-year prison sentence this week for a conspiracy that included the murder of a 15-year-old boy, the U.S. attorney’s office in Massachusetts said Tuesday.

The nickname, which the prosecutors highlighted in the headline of a press release, is particularly telling, coming just a week after President Trump called members of the violent, immigrant-fueled MS-13 gang “animals.”

Joel Martinez, 23, admitted he murdered the 15-year-old as part of his initiation as a “homeboy” in Mara Salvatrucha, the gang’s full name. […]

The White House says incidents like Martinez‘ murder-initiation back up Mr. Trump’s comment during a roundtable on sanctuary cities last week in which he said “these aren’t people, these are animals.”

The president has used such language about MS-13 many times in the past, but this latest use drew an outsized reaction from immigrant-rights groups, congressional Democrats and news outlets — many of which misconstrued the president’s remarks to refer to all illegal immigrants.

Video Shows Gun Battle At Trump Resort In Florida

Police need more range time.

Via Breaking 911:

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating a police shooting that involved the City of Doral and Miami-Dade Police Departments and resulted in one person shot on Friday.

According to investigators, the suspect, Jonathan Oddi, entered the lobby area and began to shout anti-Trump rhetoric before opening fire. Once shots were fired, patrons and employees were able to exit the area and seek safety.

The subject also activated the fire alarm in efforts to cause further confusion. Several 911 calls were received in reference to several shots fired. Officers from the City of Doral and Miami-Dade Police Departments immediately responded and identified the location of the subject.

Without hesitation, the officers engaged the subject and an exchange of gunfire ensued.

NYC’s First Citywide Student Voter Registration Day Draws Teens Looking To Stop School Gun Violence

The indoctrination is in full gear.

Via NY Daily News:

Students are leading the way on fighting for gun safety and ending sexual harassment, Mayor de Blasio said Monday — and he urged them to lead the way into the voting booths, too.

Hizzoner visited the Manhattan Hunter High School for Science to take part in the first citywide Student Voter Registration Day, where kids who are 18 or will turn 18 by Nov. 6 can sign up to vote.

“This generation is powerful. I’m just so moved by what I’m seeing. Yes, it’s the Me Too movement, it’s Black Lives Matter, it’s the women’s marches all over this country, the biggest demonstrations in the history of this nation, literally. It’s students fighting for gun safety,” de Blasio said. “We’ve seen things we have never seen either ever or in many decades.”

The voter registration drive comes just days after another mass shooting in a high school — this time in Santa Fe, Tex. — and in the wake of activism from students in Parkland, Fla., in response to a mass shooting at their own school.

When your peers are being cut down in classrooms just like this across the country,” state Sen. Brad Hoylman said, “it’s your responsibility to get involved and make sure that we toughen up our gun laws, close those loopholes and make certain that you feel safe in your schools.”

Past student voter registration drives have resulted in huge increases in the youngest voters on the rolls. In 2016, the city held Student Voter Registration Day in 60 schools around the city — and registered 8,500 students, doubling the number of 18-year-olds on the rolls. Today, there are 14,910 18-year-olds registered in the city, according to the Campaign Finance Board.

Mohema Hussain, 17, a senior from Queens, said many students don’t know what they need to do to register — or even realize they have to take any steps to do it.

“But doing it school is easy. It’s a place where you are every day. It’s a safe environment,” she said. “Doing something that might be confusing or scary on your own is much more encouraging in a school environment.”

Starbucks Employees, Customers Express Concern Over New Policy: ‘I Can’t See How This Will Work’

Sacrificed at the altar of political correctness.

Via Fox News:

Starbucks announced a new policy Saturday that allows anyone to occupy the coffee shop or use the store’s facilities, even if they don’t buy anything, but many are left to wonder if it’ll have a negative impact.

The “Third Place Policy” maintains that employees should consider anyone who enters Starbucks space, including restrooms, cafes and patios, a customer “regardless of whether they make a purchase,” the company said in a statement.

“We are committed to creating a culture of warmth and belonging where everyone is welcome,” Starbucks said.

Customers using the space must still follow a set of general guidelines, which requires them to use spaces as intended, be considerate of others, communicate with respect, and act responsibly, or they might be asked to leave.

This policy comes after the company faced intense scrutiny and backlash when two black men were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia.[…]

But the resulting Third Party Policy is being called into question by both customers and employees alike, who wonder what impact it’ll have on stores, specifically in urban locations.

In a Starbucks subreddit, people are voicing concerns that the new policy will lead to stores being filled with homeless people and drug users. One user who claims they work at a Chicago Starbucks wrote that a homeless person using the bathroom got into a fight with a customer and police requested to see the store policy before taking action.

“This is exactly the kind of behavior that I fear will drive all the regular customers away, at least from urban locations. Opposing racism is nice and all, but it is not the responsibility of Starbucks to resolve all urban problems at one location let alone turn its stores into homeless drop-in centers,” another user wrote in response.

On another thread debating the new policy, a Starbucks customer expressed similar concerns. “I can’t see how this will work in urban areas with large homeless/mentally ill populations… I just worry about how many employees will be put in danger (or get fired) until this happens,” the user wrote.

Someone claiming to be an employee who works at a store in the loop in Chicago said they hate the new policy because the store bathrooms have turned into a hub for drug activity. “We haven’t been allowed to change our bathroom codes since April. So almost all the junkies and homeless people know the code now. About once a week we find needles, drug baggies, blood all over the toilet or walls,” the user wrote.

Gun Shop Sign Near SC High School Has Some Concerned: ‘We Sell AR-15s’

Lighten up, buttercups.

Via WACH:

Managers at CrossRoads Pawn and Audio call their sign that reads “We sell AR-15’s because we’re not Dick’s” clever advertising.

“It was a simple marketing idea is all it was,” said Barbara Davey, a manager at the pawn shop.

But others call the sign gross, disgusting and insensitive.

“I think it’s very offensive,” said Ernest Carson, a Socastee resident.

Either way, CrossRoads has seen more business since putting up the sign.

“We have a few people, you know, who weren’t in favor of the sign but our positive feedback really outweighed that negative feedback,” said Davey.

The pawn shop is just down the road from North Myrtle Beach High School and the sign was put up shortly before Friday’s deadly shooting at a Santa Fe, Texas, high school.

“I think they are upset because we are, you know, in a somewhat close proximity to the high school. But in no way do we advocate or support the tragedies that are going on in this country,” said Davey.

She says the sign was put up to stand up for the Second Amendment, not as a response to recent high school shootings.

“We want to be able to help the community keep their families safe, to keep themselves safe, to advocate, you know, responsible gun ownership,” said Davey.

But Carson says the AR-15 does not fit that.

“I disagree totally with the AR-15. It’s a combat weapon and it should be used for combat and combat only,” he said.
