Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway Monument In Arizona Tarred And Feathered

Thanks CNN.

Via KSAZ:

The Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway Monument that sits in the far East Valley has been tarred and feathered. An investigation is ongoing.

The monument sits near Gold Canyon along the U.S. 60, just north of the Renaissance Festival. The monument bears the name of Jefferson Davis, who was the first and only president of the Confederate States of America.

“Somebody had to put a little thought into it, but this is going to cost a lot of money to clean up,” said John Rogers in Mesa.

The blackened and feathered monument drew some visitors. Some of them took a rather dim view of the damage.

“It is vandalism,” said Tom Hill of Mesa. “This is state property. State property. It is vandalism. The state controls this.”

This is the second monument to be defaced in the past several days. The Confederate Troops Memorial outside the Arizona Capitol was spray painted white sometime before Thursday morning.

Millennial Boobs Don’t Like Breasts…

Worst generation ever.

Via Playboy:

Are boobs on the outs? This seems to be the case for millennials, at least in regards to their porn-viewing habits. New data released by Pornhub has revealed a rather distinct generational trend regarding our cultural fondness for breasts.

Their data revealed the younger the generation, the less interested they are in women’s mammaries. The data exhibits young adults ages 18 to 24 are almost 20 percent less likely to search for breast-related content on the site whereas those 55 to 64 were 17 percent more likely. The age groups in between ascend as viewers age increases.

Don’t get me wrong: This by no means suggests breasts aren’t popular. “Big natural boobs” ranks fourth in overall searches on the site, and daily breast searches exceed millions. The figure just may not be as popular as you’d assume. On average, only 1.5 percent of daily searches on Porhub are boob-related. Of that 1.5 percent, 0.89 search for large breasts, 0.29 percent search for natural breasts, 0.09 percent search for small breasts, and fake breasts finish last with 0.06 percent. In fact, searches related to fake boobs don’t break the top 25 in breast-related searches.

Considering there are three parts of the anatomy regarded as mostly sexual (boobs, butt, vagina), boobs don’t get much love at all. Then again, searching for a body part on a porn site probably isn’t as popular as searching for a specific actor or category. I mean, before clicking on a clip, there are thumbnails of the scene and breasts are often front and center. Oftentimes, it’s no secret if they’re real or fake.

Palo Alto, CA Asks Residents To Power Down For Solar Eclipse

California can’t get power from moonbeams?

Via The Mercury News:

Palo Alto is calling on residents to celebrate the “celestial event of the century” — and to power down as much as possible during the total solar eclipse.

The solar eclipse passing over the country Monday will obscure about 58 to 76 percent of solar rays typically hitting California, according to Palo Alto Utilities.

Utilities General Manager Ed Shikada said the eclipse will cause an estimated loss of 4,194 megawatts of California large-scale solar electricity and Palo Alto gets 30 percent of its electricity from such sources.

Solar system generation will go from about 64 to 83 percent capacity at the start of the eclipse down to about 15 to 37 percent at the height of the eclipse, according to the California Energy Commission.

City Manager James Keene encourages the community to reduce energy consumption to prevent extra greenhouse gases from being produced to compensate for the loss of clean, carbon-free power.

Trump Admin Shuts Down Central American Minor Protection Program

‘Minor’ includes 17-year-old MS-13 gang members in Obama’s world.

Via Fox:

The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program — this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States.

The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which oversaw the project, 1,465 minors have been granted entry under the parole program. Another 2,714 people had been conditionally approved to enter the U.S. but have now lost the opportunity.

The program’s future seemed to be in jeopardy in February when the Department of Homeland Security froze it — saying it was under internal review as part of a wave of executive orders Trump signed during his first few weeks in office.

The program’s termination was announced in the federal register.

Missouri Senator: ‘There’s No Way In Hell That I’m Resigning’

Staying on the gravy train as long as possible. Update to this story.

Via KMOX:

Missouri senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal says she will not wilt to the political leaders who are calling for a resignation.

Chappelle-Nadal told KMOX’s Carol Daniel, “There is no way in hell that I’m resigning. There are legislators who have cheated on their wives, they have smoked in the legislature, in the state capitol. If they have not been asked to resign for those acts, which I do believe that cheating on your wife or your spouse is immoral, I am not resigning for a mistake that I made and that I’m owning up to.”

In a statement issued Thursday, Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber called for her resignation.

“State Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s comments are indefensible. All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America – and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President. I believe she should resign,” Webber said.

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill agrees. In a statement released Thursday afternoon, McCaskill stated, “I condemn it. It’s outrageous. And she should resign.”[…]

KMOX’s Carol Daniel asked Chappelle-Nadal if she was going to apologize for her comments. Chappelle-Nadal replied, “When the President apologizes, I’ll apologize. I’m not apologizing for being frustrated and angry at the bigot that we have in our White House.”

Two Former Wasserman Schultz IT Aides Indicted For Conspiracy Against U.S.

Finally!

Via Daily Caller:

A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology (IT) aides of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi — on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend to return to the U.S., according to the FBI.

“Defendants AWAN and ALVI did unlawfully, willfully, and knowingly conspire, combine, confederate, and agree with each other to commit offenses against the United States,” including bank fraud, false statements, and unlawful monetary transactions, the indictment said.

New Orleans’ Joan Of Arc Statue Vandalized With ‘Take It Down’

Monuments of white women must go.

Via PJ Media:

Another day, yet another statue of a military hero is reportedly under fire. This figure astride a horse was vandalized with the spray-painted words “Tear It Down”.

Who was this historical figure? General Lee? Stonewall Jackson? Nathan Bedford Forrest?

No, this was a figure who hails from the north.

Of France:

The phrase “Tear it Down” was hastily sprayed in black paint across the base of the golden Joan of Arc statue on Decatur Street in the French Quarter sometime earlier this week. It has since been removed, with only the vaguest traces of the paint remaining.

The “Tear it Down” tag would seem to relate to the debate surrounding the city’s ongoing removal of four Confederate monuments. But the statue of Joan of Arc, a 15th-century military leader, martyr and Catholic saint, hasn’t been mentioned in the controversy to this point.

Amy Kirk Duvoisin, the founder of the annual Joan of Arc parade that ceremonially pauses at the statue on the first day of Carnival season, says she’s confused by the vandalism.

“Surely, people realize she’s not related to American history,” she said referring to the French icon.

CNN posted a map on August 17 showing the location of approximately 1,500 Confederate monuments and/or official symbols in the U.S.

The map will, no-doubt, serve as a hit-list for the frenzied Workers World Party members and others seeking the removal and destruction of Confederate statues in city after city across America.

CNN reports, “Roughly 1,500 Confederate symbols still exist on public land more than 150 years after the conclusion of the Civil War.” It explains that 718 of the Confederate symbols are “monuments and statutes.”

MS-13 Gang Members Slashed A 19 Year-Old To Death To Boost Their Status In The Gang…

Via Daily Caller:

Authorities in New York say two members of the infamously brutal MS-13 gang chopped a teenager to pieces because they wanted to boost their “stature,” according to a Fox report published Thursday.

The two suspects reportedly enticed the unidentified victim with seductive promises of sex and marijuana. After successfully luring the 19 year old into a vehicle, they took him to Massapequa Preserve. There, the gang members used machetes and knives to fatally chop and slash the man. Police say such a savage, violent act was a means to prove their worth to fellow gang members.

Carlos Portillo, 22, and Granados-Coreas, 19, have now been charged with second-degree murder and are denied bail. Nassau County Police said Portillo is an illegal immigrant, according to Fox News. They also said that more arrests pursuant to the investigation are possible.

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer wondered on air whether the suspected terrorist attack on Thursday in Barcelona, Spain, was related to the violence that broke out last weekend at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Va.

The attack in Barcelona reportedly resulted in several deaths and more injuries after a vehicle plowed into pedestrians on a sidewalk.

“Yeah, there will be questions about copycats,” Blitzer said during his coverage of the incident. “There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona was at all — at all — a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Va., even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions. They used the same killing device: A vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians.”

The violence in Charlottesville culminated in a 20-year-old man allegedly driving a car into a group of people counter-protesting a white supremacy rally, which killed one woman.

Seattle’s Mayor Requests Removal Of Confederate AND Lenin Statues

Guess that settles that argument.

Via My Northwest:

“In the last few days, Seattleites have expressed concerns and frustration over symbols of hate, racism and violence that exist in our city. Not only do these kinds of symbols represent historic injustices, their existence causes pain among those who themselves or whose family members have been impacted by these atrocities. We should remove all these symbols, no matter what political affiliation may have been assigned to them in the decades since they were erected.

This includes both confederate memorials and statues idolizing the founder of the authoritarian soviet regime. Both are on private property, but I believe the confederate memorial at Lake View Cemetery and the Lenin statue in Fremont should be removed. We should never forget our history, but we also should not idolize figures who have committed violent atrocities and sought to divide us based on who we are or where we came from.”

Someone Trashed An Abraham Lincoln Statue In Chicago…

Ridiculous.

Via Blue Lives Matter:

Chicago, IL – In the most dumbfounding vandalism of the year, somebody set an Abraham Lincoln statue on fire in Chicago on Wednesday, according to 15th Ward Alderman Raymond Lopez.

The monument has stood near 69th & Wolcott St since it was erected in 1926. It is now blackend by fire.

By all appearances, somebody dumped accelerant on the bust and then lit it on fire.

According to Alderman Lopez, Chicago PD is investigating who committed the act and what their motivation was.

Abraham Lincoln, who led the Union to victory in the civil war and ended slavery, appears to be an unlikely target for vandalism. At least, that’s what I would think. Based off of the comments of some locals, Abraham Lincoln was a racist who said a lot of “racist shit.”
