Covington HS promised a lawsuit in 48 hours

Where is it?

I would love a lawsuit but doubt hugely any will spring from the HS. Their apology stands to date.

Laura Keener, of the diocese, released the following statement:

"We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.

"The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement."

The Diocese knows these kids, watches their racist behaviors daily and has no trouble believing a tape showing their bad behavior. I've seen two videos of them trashing women that same day and the videos of them in blackface at ball games is disgusting in the 21st century. Their adult supervision is baffling ,send in a marine.

To date, the only "appropriate action" taken by the diocese is to hire a PR firm.

Dems hoisting Pelosi on their shoulders

and dancing on the House floor!!!!!!!!

Metaphorically, of course.

Coronation to follow?

BREAKING: RNC prepares to cancel 2020 GOP Primary

Zeke Miller

RNC Resolutions Committee just voted unanimously to “undivided support” for Trump and his “effective presidency," clearing way for passage before full GOP governing body on Friday.

Pelosi should allow SOTU

but ban all cameras and microphones in the chamber.

Nicholas Sandmann Statement

I'll leave it to others to poke holes in this kids explanation. What struck me was his claim that CCHS students are respectful of all races. I suppose it's remotely possible but every photo I've seen of the crowd of kids, especially the ones wearing MAGA gear and all the photos I've found of CCHS groups on their website are 99.9% devoid of POC. Coincidence?

What about Helsinki ?

The latest FBI revelation highlights the absolute necessity of finding out what was discussed in the incredibly suspicious , secret meeting of Trump and Putin.

Did Trump create a major vulnerability

by appointing Mulvaney COS ?
He's a Senate confirmed official named as COS (who is not quitting as OMB chief) . So, is he the first POTUS to have a CoS who can be called to testify before Congress. Can his testimony be limited to only budget matters or is it unlimited?

Murder from a cost/ benefit perspective

Following the Tangerine traitor's thinking on the events in Turkey, should we extend the metaphor?

Maybe criminal sentences for murder should be based on costs, like incarceration v. execution? Or maybe we can put a dollar value on the victim's life and adjust the sentences accordingly?

How about the abortion issue? Let's see, what is the dollar cost of an unwanted pregnancy to society figuring in the statistics we know about unwanted kids committing more crimes, requiring more psychological services, welfare help etc. and the subsequent disruption to the mother's lives and career possibilities. Those numbers get huge FAST! Maybe the abortion as murder meme needs to be reconsidered as simply a cost/ benefit analysis?

GOP solutions to gun violence

Combining this recent WI initiative to get guns in the hands of kids
with Newt's plan to arm all teachers and we could turn our schools into a secure place of learning bristling with enough firepower to discourage any crazy serial killer. Still, I do have some concerns over teacher recruitment.


The "Apprentice" tapes"

Source: DU

Reading about the Inauguration accounting I encountered this:

"The official said that Ms. Winston Wolkoff’s firm paid the team used by Mark Burnett, the creator of “The Apprentice,” whose involvement in the inaugural festivities was requested by Mr. Trump."

Suspicious because of Burnett's involvement. Burnett has refused to release backstage tapes of Apprentice filming and outtakes allegedly containing Trump's wildly racist, anti-semitic and homophobic comments. Is this Trump paying for silence?
