Shapiro loves it...
he's already admitted it - this is how he works for the Republican Party
Stir up the base - stir up the base - stir up the base

This is the new game now...
Work with campus republicans to get a platform
cover the campus with bullet point posters (we all know the bullet points)

make sure everybody is as riled up and agitated as you can get them
Then unleash the press

:lol:

Shapiro is the master

It doesn't take a master to be accused of hate speech

or to get a bunch of race and gender studies students to chant ignorant things

Hell, I could do it if I had the free time and was bored enough

I love this shit. It's the type of cataclysmic event that could have erased prior more advanced civilizations from history, created the Missoula floods through the flash melting of the glaciers, caused the extinction of north american megafauna, and altered the atmosphere enough to create the biblical rain stories passed down through the generations of many cultures.

We're on a cosmic windshield traveling 67,000 miles per hour.

Impact crater 19 miles wide found beneath Greenland glacier
Science

Crater appears to be result of mile-wide iron meteorite just 12,000 years ago

A huge impact crater has been discovered under a half-mile-thick Greenland ice sheet.

The enormous bowl-shaped dent appears to be the result of a mile-wide iron meteorite slamming into the island at a speed of 12 miles per second as recently as 12,000 years ago.

The impact of the 10bn-tonne space rock would have unleashed 47m times the energy of the Little Boy nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. It would have melted vast amounts of ice, sending freshwater rushing into the oceans, and blasted rocky debris high into the atmosphere.


At 19.3 miles wide, the crater ranks among the 25 largest known on Earth and is the first to be found beneath an ice sheet.

A mini ice age could be on the way and it’s going to get very, very cold
Humanity is facing a long, cold winter which could see temperatures across the planet plunge to depressing lows. That’s the warning from a Nasa scientist who fears sunspot activity on the surface of our star has dropped so low that it could herald the arrival of a uniquely grim mini Ice Age. ‘We see a cooling trend,’ Martin Mlynczak of Nasa’s Langley Research Center told Space Weather. ‘High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy.

:lol: :thumb: We're supposed to have our season ending golf tourney tomorrow and we got a couple inches of sleet and snow yesterday. Good news is it got warmer overnight and it should be gone by mid afternoon today. Of course it's wet as hell. This is I think our 5th most rainfall in history. Trees are just giving up and falling over everywhere.

Yup, no matter how objectionable Acosta is (ironically he's the journalism's equivalent of Trump) the press gets to have equal access to be there.

If. I read correctly, the ruling was based on his 5th Amendment rights being violated...the judge did not immediately rule on 1A violations
While the judge did say Friday that no one has an absolute First Amendment right to have access to the White House, he then said when the president invites in some reporters but excludes others the First Amendment comes into play. However, because Kelly found that Acosta would likely be able to prove his Fifth Amendment rights to due process were violated, the judge did not move on to consider his First Amendment question of whether a single reporter can be barred from the White House.

Yeah I saw it

It was another one of her “Does your mother know you’re gay?” questions like the one she put to Kavanaugh

Why the reply wasn’t “Are you aware that there is a perception that the Democratic Party is full of open borders radicals?” I have no idea. When somebody eventually hoists her from her own petard on CSPAN it will definitely get a posting from me here
