Ilhan Omar, the muslim woman/Democratic representative for Minnesota was commiserating with fellow notorious anti-Semite Marc Lamont Hill — who was fired from CNN last year after he called for the elimination of Israel. She, the genius that she is, is calling for the elimination of immigration authorities.
There is no doubt that if, G-d forbid, Bernie Sanders was elected president, the borders would be wide open, as in Germany where they let in one million undocumented immigrants who have changed the face of the country.
Omar et al would eliminate both the borders and immigration authorities while giving all illegal immigrants free health care, housing and an education. Of course if Andrew Yang becomes president they would also get $1000 a month for the rest of their lives, so who wouldn’t want to go to the US?
There is a huge gefuffelment in the United States over a citizenship question on a nation-wide census. Trump wants this question on the census: “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” Democrats don’t want the question asked. Seems the issue is over voting rights.
The Trump administration claims it needs to ask the question to collect the data for the Justice Department to enforce the Voting Rights Act.
But Democrats worry the real motivation is to discourage noncitizens from responding, skewing the population counts used to draw Congressional districts and eventually giving Republicans a bigger electoral advantage.
Can we talk? When a census is taken, those reading the data need to know if the person responding is a citizen. If not, much of the data is skewed, including knowing who can vote and who can’t. In this case, Trump is correct.
CNN is in big trouble and it’s not Donald’s fault. It is the fault of poor, dishonest, unreliable reporting and talking heads. They came in 15th place in primetime during the previous quarter and lost nearly 20 percent of its already pathetic viewership.
Here’s where the adage you can fool some of the people some of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time fits.
If you’re not creeped out by the ever-present little robot (Alexa) quietly eavesdropping in your house, it might be time to reconsider. Confirming the suspicions of some privacy advocates and a member of Congress, Amazon admitted in a letter to Congress that voice recordings stored by its Alexa in-home assistant devices do in fact remain on the company’s servers indefinitely. In other words, Alexa is listening to your conversations.
Most people say they have nothing to hide. That may be true…until you find out that someone overheard you scumming out your boss. What they can do with your comments is another story, but who wants someone listening to every word you say in the privacy of your house?
It turns out that if you own one of these little babies and want to have a private conversation in your own house fuggedaboutit. You will have to go outside and take a walk.
This is one for the books: In Nevada, your passenger has to be breathing if you’re using the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lane. A highway patrol officer was confronted by a funeral home employee who thought it counted as carpooling if other occupants in the car were in caskets. Seriously? This is a real-life Weekend at Bernie’s.
It appears that counting a corpse in a casket in the back of a hearse as a “passenger,” even if their destination may be a little more final, is what the funeral employee was after. Spare us.
The conversation ended like this: “What if the dead person were in the passenger seat?” “Then the HOV violation is the least of your concerns.” Hehehehe.
Blanche, remember Imelda Marcos? Well, she just turned 90 and threw herself one heck of a party. Of course she has the money to do so as she and her husband stole about $10 billion from their brothers and sisters in the Philippines. If you recall, the woman had thousands of pairs of shoes. Rather a fetish, ne c’est pas? But we digress.
The over 2,000 party-goers were served tainted meat and began, shall we say, tossing their cookies en masse. Nasty business and quite the mess. Feh.
Good Shabbos We’ll talk…
