Yes, it is a Friday in the Realm and I am here in my office nestled between two stadiums in Seattle.  It looks to be a slow day here today.  Tomorrow will pick up substantially.  The news is a bit strange today, I’m expecting the usual “Friday Evening News Dump” today to be even more crazy, just because of the holiday weekend.

The Headlines that Caught My Eye This Morning:

Item 1:   Republican Says ‘Good Conservative’ Congressmen Are Being Blackmailed Just Because They Got Naked With Strangers in Motel Rooms

I love the “just because” part.  If you relied on just the headline here, you wouldn’t understand that this story is about Republicans actively trying to block the release of Jeffrey Epstein’s list of child predators who visited his private island to pork young, underaged girls.  Apparently, a number of Congresscritters are on that list.  But this goes a bit deeper and touches on what both Madison Crawford and George Santos alluded to with “cocaine parties” and a whole lot of sexual encounters.

If Congress feels the need to “investigate” wrongdoing, then it should start first with itself.

Item 2:   New Audio Reveals Trump Pressured Michigan Election Workers Not to Certify

Oh, I’m sure there are many more audio recordings that will shaft The Don.

Item 3:   Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa was ‘forced out’ of White House after he ‘tried to take gay dates’ to his room on secure floor of hotel where president was staying during NATO summit in Madrid

Seems to be a lot of this crap going on lately.  I don’t give a flying fuck whether it was ‘gay dates’ or not — wrong is wrong, and he should have been fired and blackballed.

Item 4:   US intelligence analysis warns Hamas’ influence has grown since its attack on Israel

It’s kind of what happens when you bomb the dogshit out of civilians.  They tend to turn on the people doing the bombing.  Duh.

Item 5:   Seattle hospital sues Texas AG who sought records of trans minors

I would have been surprised if Children’s Hospital didn’t sue the Texas AG.  He has no right to any of these records.

Item 6:   Rasmussen Shock: Biden 46% Approval

Shocked, I tell you.  Shocked.

Item 7:   Prosecutor who allegedly shielded Joe, Hunter Biden testified 79 times she’s ‘not authorized’ by DOJ to give answers

These Republican committee chairs know exactly why she can’t answer their questions:  Theses are ongoing cases and investigations and they do not and will not answer any questions on current, ongoing cases.  But boy howdy, it is sure fun to pretend that the DOJ is ‘stonewalling’ this important Congressional investigation.  Which brings me to the next headline

Item 8:   St. Louis Police File Felony Charge Against Bar:PM Owner After SUV Crash

So the cops run their SUV into the front entrance of a gay bar as they are closing up, narrowly missing one of the co-owners, and the co-owner gets arrested and held under no bail  hold for ‘assaulting’ the cop.

Item 9:   Punishing their own but passing few laws, a Congress in chaos leaves much to do in 2024

Chip Roy, bless his heart, literally begged his caucus to give him ONE thing they’ve accomplished over the past year that he can campaign on.  I can’t think of anything, can you?

The Republican-controlled House hasn’t accomplished anything other than squabbling over who is going to be Speaker, and opening up several fake “investigations” and an impeachment inquiry with no underlying ‘crime’, or even evidence that supports that ‘crime’.

All of the hot-button issues that we, as a country, currently face, Republicans want no part of.  They will complain until the cows come home about the mess at our Southern border, and will blame Joe Biden for that mess, but it is NOT Joe Biden’s job to fix the problems at the border, it is the job of CONGRESS.

I don’t think there is a person alive who doesn’t understand that we have a SERIOUS immigration and border problem that has needed immediate attention for about forty fucking years. Both Republicans AND Democrats in Congress want to kick the can down the road  and let some future Congress deal with it.

Every time a president tries to unilaterally ‘fix’ the problem with Executive Orders, they usually end up in court because they really don’t have the authority to make laws like that.  They also end up violating the US Constitution or conflicts with some other existing law, and it all gets unwound.

But that doesn’t stop the Party of Grievance from complaining about it non-stop.

Jesus Fucking Christ.  Instead of the stupid pet tricks Congress is currently performing, maybe just shit-can all the stupid partisan bullshit and actually start working in a comprehensive border and immigration policy for the 21st Century.  Also maybe address the issue where over a half-million American citizens are living on the streets today, unable to afford a fucking place to live in this great country of ours.

There are SO many things Congress could — and should be doing right now, but they are all hung up on stupid shit.

Item 10:   Detainees to be paid minimum wage after Wash. Supreme Court ruling

Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma, Washington is a private holding facility run by GEO Group (formerly Wackenhut).  The NWDC is the holding facility for ICE to house migrants who  are in administrative custody waiting for a determination of their immigration status.  They are being held for an indeterminate amount of time, and are not incarcerated for any crimes.

GEO has been using these detainees to do the essential work of running a 1600-bed detention center.  They cook, clean, and provide maintenance — for a dollar a day, which is in violation of Washington State’s minimum wage laws.  Now GEO Group is required to pay $17 million in back wages and taxes to these detainees.

 

 

What the Fuck Did I Just Stream?

11.22.63 – Hulu

Jake Epping, a recently divorced English teacher from Lisbon, Maine, is presented with the chance to travel back in time to 1960 by his long-time friend Al Templeton. He is persuaded into going in an attempt to prevent the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963; however, he becomes attached to the life he makes in the past, which could be the mission’s undoing. He must find a way to secretly gather information about people and events leading up to the assassination while also creating and maintaining a new life to avoid suspicion.

 

From the Meme Box:

Back in the day when men dressed like men…

Better than the choices we have now…

 

I don’t care who it is, as long as they are low maintenance, and low drama

I’m Dreaming of a Foggy Christmas…

 

Reality?  What’s that?

I would rate this as probably true.  The man hasn’t read a book in years.

I suspect he got this “blood of our country” nonsense from Steven Miller, who has read Mein Kampf and uses it as his bible.

None of these stories matter. There is only one story that has any importance. Disney is going to remake the X-files.

They are so going to ruin it. They’re basic philosophy for the last few years has been “Put a chick in it and make her gay! And Lame!!”

Terrorist’s mom: ‘We should devour the Jews with our teeth’
Son murdered British-Israeli woman and 2 daughters
The mother of a terrorist who murdered a British-Israeli woman and her two daughters has endorsed her son’s violence, threatening, “We should devour the Jews with our teeth.”

Hassan Qatanani, the report said, killed Lucy Dee and her daughters in a shooting attack last spring.
His mother, in an interview with Quds News Agency, said, “He loved martyrdom. He would say to me, day and night, ‘Mom, I want to be martyred.’ He would kiss my hand and say: ‘Pray to Allah that I will be martyred’… Praise be to Allah for granting him what he wanted…”

Ah, the religion of peace.

From here on, suggest everyone start using the following wording every single time there is to be any reference to energy tapped from the earth or derived from same through processing..

NATURAL FUELS AND CHEMICALS – Never, never allow the use of the word “FOSSIL” in any context other than long dead animal skeletons or creatures that have been around millions of years.

Ending the mis-naming of things removes perceived dominance of those who purposefully use such to sway emotions as opposed to reason.

With that, a MERRY CHRIST MAS to all
