It’s a loss by the LGBT activist community and it’s part of the reason they’re so angry about it. For decades, we’ve been told by the LGBT activist community that we’re all homophobic or transphobic because the world hasn’t been accepting of their sexuality, but now the tables have turned and the lack of acceptance now sits with them.
Go for the gold? The U.S. government went for it.
FBI agents were looking for an extremely valuable cache of fabled Civil War-era gold — possibly tons of it — when they excavated a remote woodland site in Pennsylvania three years ago this month, according to government emails and other recently released documents in the case.
On March 13, 2018, treasure hunters led the FBI to Dent’s Run, about 135 miles (220 kilometers) northeast of Pittsburgh, where legend has it an 1863 shipment of Union gold was either lost or stolen on its way to the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia.
The FBI has long refused to confirm why exactly it went digging, saying only in written statements over the years that agents were there for a court-authorized excavation of “what evidence suggested may have been a cultural heritage site.”
In any event, the FBI says, the dig came up empty.
But the father-son duo who brought a small army of federal agents to the site remain convinced the FBI uncovered something there — and their lawyer, Bill Cluck, is still pressing the case, successfully suing for access to government emails about the dig.
Those documents, which Cluck provided to The Associated Press, show that federal law enforcement was indeed after buried treasure.

Jessica Bakeman, a journalist formerly stationed at the New York State Capitol, has come forward as the seventh woman to level allegations of sexual harassment against embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
Bakeman broke her silence about Cuomo in an essay published in The New Yorker on Friday, alleging that the governor placed his arm around her shoulders during a party at the Executive Mansion in 2012.
“He left it there, and kept me pinned next to him, for several minutes as he finished telling his story,” Bakeman, now an education reporter for Miami’s WLRN, recalled. “I stood there, my cheeks hot, giggling nervously as my male colleagues did the same. We all knew it was wrong, but we did nothing.”
In another instance, Bakeman alleges that the governor held her body tightly while she said goodnight at a holiday party in 2014.
“He took my hand, as if to shake it, then refused to let go,” she recalled. “He put his other arm around my back, his hand on my waist, and held me firmly in place while indicating to a photographer he wanted us to pose for a picture.”
According to Bakeman, Cuomo’s behavior toward her was not about sex but rather exerting “power.”
“He wanted me to know that he could take my dignity away at any moment with an inappropriate comment or a hand on my waist,” she wrote.
“The way he bullies and demeans women is different,” she added. “He uses touching and sexual innuendo to stoke fear in us. That is the textbook definition of sexual harassment.”
5 police officers face life in prison after shooting a 15-year-old boy 13 times after he reportedly attempted to rob a convenience store
At least five Oklahoma City police officers are facing first-degree manslaughter charges in the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy who was reportedly trying to rob a convenience store.
What are the details?
On Nov. 23, Oklahoma City police officers responded to a call for an attempted armed robbery at an area convenience store. When officers arrived on the scene, they encountered the suspect, 15-year-old Stavian Rodriguez.
Footage of the encounter has been released showing Rodriguez — who was armed when officers arrived on the scene — placing his weapon on the ground and appearing to cooperate with police.
"Show us your hands, sir," cops can be heard telling the teen. "Nobody has to get hurt."
Rodriguez can be seen lifting his shirt to show officers that he has a gun in tucked in the waistband of his jeans. He places the weapon on the ground as an officer shouts, "Get face-down on the ground!"
Rodriguez then seems to attempt a reach into his pocket in a motion that appears to be the act of removing something else.
Moments later, officers shoot Rodriguez at least 13 times, killing him.

Honest Open Transparent
As we've seen again and again in Racine County - many public officials and public employees are caught in situations where they would otherwise lose their positions and the perks, bennies, pay, pensions, and lifestyles that go along with them. Many "Public servants" (not all) are nothing but a mask worn in public hiding who they actually are - and beholden to those who place them in power and fund their campaigns/lifestyle. John Dickert played the lead role in the Senior play at St. Cats - he is an actor. He was a "King" even in HS - and yet a POS - he had a Court and bed many of the girls - I should know - I was his classmate.
Democrat Logic: Joe Biden Says Military Will Focus on Making “Maternity Flight Suits” — So Pregnant Women Can Drop Into Enemy Territory During Wartime? (VIDEO)
Happy International Women’s Day!
The Biden White House announced on Monday, which happened to be International Women’s Day, that the US military is focusing on “maternity flight suits” for pregnant women.
Because it’s important that pregnant women are able to drop into enemy territory during wartime.
Biden made the statement right before he forgot where the hell he was and the name of the general standing behind him.
Joe’s handler for the day, Kamala Harris, was standing behind him but failed in her daily duties.

Live by the sword, die by #MeToo: If we’re judging Andrew Cuomo by his own standards, he must resign as New York’s governor

What Cuomo posted on Twitter on September 17, 2018 was pretty ironic. After finding himself in a similar situation, the same person who demanded a delay in the confirmation vote for Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is now stating that he won’t resign.
Many women have come forward with accusations about Governor Cuomo’s behavior, and we find ourselves in another situation where someone in authority is going to have to be held to account by the #MeToo standard.
Other Democrats are already holding Cuomo to that standard. The speaker of the New York state general assembly, Carl Heastie, and the state senate majority leader, Andrea Stewart-Cousins, have called for him to step down. There have also been discussions on whether or not to draft articles of impeachment to pull him out of office.
Whether Cuomo realizes it or not, he is being judged by the exact same measure he uses to judge others. A post-Kavanaugh Democrat Party is one that has to be held to its own standards. If not, it stands accused of being massively hypocritical, and the more progressive wing of the party is likely to be increasingly vocal about that. It’ll also worsen the split within the #MeToo movement, which many Democrats have used as a cudgel to beat their opponents.
No doubt there will be some who’ll find this situation deeply satisfying, as it’s emblematic of an entire political party having to reap what it sows. Cuomo was someone who was portrayed as a hero during the Covid crisis. He was even given an Emmy award for his press conferences. The media went to bat for him, and largely swept his targeting of Orthodox Jewish communities under the rug.
