Trump’s latest pick is the worst!

At some point all of this loses it’s punch.

Trump is looking for different people, clearly.

This one will be hard, GOP Senators are raising concerns too….


More whining over a dead murderer

But because a jury did not ask for Smith to die. Never. Smith was convicted of capital murder in the killing of a Huntsville store clerk in 1995 – a vile and despicable act — but a majority of jurors – seven of the 12 – recommended Judge Linwood Smith sentence him to life in prison.

Seven jurors listened to the facts and said let him rot in prison.

Five listened and said kill him.

And Judge Smith – then a circuit judge but now a U.S. District Judge – looked at the 7-5 vote and said …

I don’t care what you say. Off with his head.

He overrode the jury verdict – something that’s now legal only in Alabama — and sentenced the other Smith to a death that turned out gruesome.

Poor John Archibald someone get him a tissue.


Did this principle REALLY need to be suspended?

No. This is dumb.

The Gadsden Times reports Mitchell Elementary School Principal Roger Wilkinson was suspended for 20 days without pay after meeting with school officials behind closed doors Tuesday.

Concerns were raised about Wilkson’s Facebook post that read: “All I can say is, Trump was elected two days ago and we already have actual white flour American rolls in the lunchroom instead of the Communist wheat bread that’s been served for the past few years.”

If you are going to suspend him, suspend him for being painfully unclever…


Fake news!

There is actually a good point in this…

Low levels of trust in traditional media is also leading to a surge in the producers of phony news stories.

“When you look at the political climate and this being the year of the outsider in the election, it’s indicative of the distrust people have in institutions and especially in the media,” said Justin Blankenship, an assistant professor of journalism at Auburn University and a former TV reporter at WPMI-15 in Mobile.

Pew Research Center analysis in July showed that few people have confidence in the information they get from professional news outlets, though social media got substantially lower trust scores.

When it comes to national news, the issue seems somewhat split among partisan loyalties: Democrats are more likely than others to have “a lot” of trust information from national news outlets – 27 percent compared to 15 percent of Republicans and 13 percent of Independents.

Perhaps the most eye-popping disparity comes from how U.S. adults even view facts. While 59 percent of adults prefer the media simply “present the facts” instead of including interpretations into reports, a whopping 81 percent of registered voters may not even agree on what the facts are, according to the research center.

“Ten or 20 years ago, if something made it on the nightly news or in the local newspaper, you had a relatively safe assumption that someone put the work in and it was relatively well-researched and a through-through piece of journalism,” said Blankenship. “With the low trust in the media and the low trust in the establishment piggybacking on themselves, it creates this vortex of conspiratorial (thinking) of not being worried about the veracity of claims.”

So AL.com, Heal thyself.


Alabama education sucks…

When will we admit this and then fix it?


Can Democrats learn?


“Hate speech” laws backfire….

Before the trial began on October 31, the PVV was credited with 27 seats.

During the trial, but before his conviction on Friday, its estimated share rose to 34 seats. It currently has 12 lawmakers.

The new poll data comes from a weekly monitoring by the Maurice de Hond Institute.

It found that Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Liberals would place second with 23 seats, against 40 today, and his junior coalition partners, the Labour Party (PvdA), would gain 10 seats, compared with 35 today.

Wilders was found guilty of discrimination against Moroccans but acquitted of hate speech over remarks he made at an election rally in March 2014.

He had asked supporters whether they wanted “fewer or more Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands.” When the crowd shouted back “Fewer! Fewer!” a smiling Wilders answered: “We’re going to organise that.”

Wilders, 53, largely boycotted the trial, which he denounced as a political attempt to gag him.

The judges were strongly critical of Wilders’ “inflammatory” remarks at the rally but decided not to impose any sentence or fine.

The outcome of the Dutch vote will be keenly watched given the anti-EU outcome of Britain’s Brexit referendum and the November election of populist Donald Trump as the next US president.

Wilders has among other things vowed to confiscate Korans, close mosques and Islamic schools, shut the borders and ban migrants from Islamic countries.

Don’t think it can not happen here…


This will be as effective as a “gun-free zone” was for victims at the Pulse nightclub…


Merry Christmas everyone…

Oh.


More terrorism…
