Democratic Mega Donor Ed Buck Arrested For Running A Drug Den After Third Man Overdoses

Fortunately the third man lived and can tell the story. Buck was a donor to Ted Lieu, Adam Schiff and Hillary Clinton, among others.

Via Fox News:

LOS ANGELES – Ed Buck, the California Democratic megadonor, was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house after a third man reportedly suffered an overdose inside his West Hollywood home last week and survived.

Buck has faced public scrutiny after two black men died from overdoses 18 months apart inside his home. He was not charged in those cases.

Buck is due in court Wednesday to respond to three counts of battery and injecting the alleged third victim with methamphetamine on Sept. 11, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Prosecutors wrote in court papers obtained by the Times that Buck used his position of power to manipulate his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes.

“These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims,” the prosecutors wrote, according to the Times.

Rep. Joe Kennedy III Weighs In On Impeachment, Sexual Assault Allegations And Justice For Survivors

Sit down, Joe…

Via Twitchy:

It’s always great to hear the new #MeToo generation of Kennedys speak up, and Rep. Joe Kennedy III wants justice for the survivors of sexual assault that we have failed — particularly the ones who don’t recall being sexually assaulted. In that spirit, Kennedy is joining Rep. Ayanna Pressley and calling for an impeachment inquiry into Brett Kavanaugh … over a debunked New York Times book excerpt that was reportedly pitched to The New York Times’ news division, which passed on it. But, there’s a book to sell, so … impeachment it is.

If the problem she faced was “voter suppression,” how did she get the popular vote? She’s ridiculous. Voter purging has happened since forever, to help clear the rolls of people who don’t vote/moved/died.

Witnesses Defended Kavanaugh, But NYT Authors Falsely Claimed They Were Silent

But no, they’re not biased…

Via The Federalist:

Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly wrote the much-discussed and later-corrected essay in The New York Times making a new sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The two reporters failed to mention that the alleged victim of the physically improbable tale had never made such a claim, and denied any memory of it through “several” friends. They also failed to note that the accusation came from a prominent Democrat who had defended Bill Clinton during the Whitewater investigation on which Kavanaugh served.

A new Atlantic-published, adapted excerpt of the book attempts to resurrect Pogrebin and Kelly’s anti-Kavanaugh smears but once again has a major error. “We Spent 10 Months Investigating Kavanaugh. Here’s What We Found” was published in the Atlantic.

Their reporting must not have been thorough. In a section explaining why they believe the accusers despite the lack of any evidence, they write that their emotional reaction to the claims was that the claims rang true. But they get major facts wrong:

Using Martha’s common-sense test, the claims of Deborah Ramirez, while not proven by witnesses, also ring true to us. Ramirez, who was a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s, said he drunkenly thrust his penis at her during a party in their freshman-year dormitory, Lawrance Hall. The people who allegedly witnessed the event—Kavanaugh’s friends Kevin Genda, David Todd, and David White—have kept mum about it. Kavanaugh has denied it. If such an incident had occurred, Kavanaugh said, it would have been the “talk of campus.”

Saudi Oil Attacks: Drones And Missiles Launched From Iran – US

Ups the question of a response.

Via BBC:

The US has reportedly identified locations in Iran from which drones and cruise missiles were launched against major Saudi oil facilities on Saturday.

Senior US officials told media outlets that the locations were in southern Iran, at the northern end of the Gulf.
Saudi air defences did not stop the drones and missiles because they were pointed southwards, to prevent attacks from Yemen, they added.

Iran denies involvement in the attacks, which disrupted global oil supplies.

Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi rebels said they had launched the drones that struck the Abqaiq oil processing plant, the world’s largest, and the Khurais oilfield.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid: ‘White Christian Men’ In America Will Use Apartheid To Keep Power…

Oh boy.

A host on MSNBC says “wealthy white Christian” Americans will use an “Apartheid model” to isolate minorities and preserve their power.

The prediction came from AM Joy host, Joy Ann Reid, who appeared at an event hosted by the teachers union, American Federation of Teachers.

“My father came — grew up in the Congo, which [like the United States] is also a system of minority rule based on tribe,” Reid said. “My mother came from a system in which the last president in her lifetime served for 24 years. No country is an eternal democracy. Democracy is extremely fragile, and multiracial democracy is so fragile we’re practically the only one that’s pulled it off.”
