How bad is the U.S. election system? 392 of 662 precincts in Detroit may not be able to participate in the statewide recount because the number of ballots in their poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports. That’s 59%.
Kaepernick and 49ers versus Chicago Bears. After a dismal performance during which the SF quarterback had more sacks (5) than passing yards (4), Kaepernick was benched yesterday. Probably permanently. Meanwhile, the not-so-good Bears (3–9) ended up blowing out the dismal 49ers (1–11) by a score of 26–6.
Obama administration denies final permit for Dakota Access pipeline. Most of the pipeline is already complete, and regulators and courts already gave their approval but a few whacko environmentalists along with some shipped-in Indians from other states were protesting… so of course Obama chickens out and puts another pipeline into bureaucratic purgatory.
Bank of England will change currency to make vegans happy. Seems there is a bit of tallow used in the manufacture of pound notes, and the vegans and vegetarians find that appalling. No word on how the lacto-vegetarians, ovo-vegetarians, lacto-ovo-vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, demi-vegetarians, pollo-vegetarians, raw vegans, Paleo vegans, and pescetarians feel but presumably they are in various stages of being appalled also.
Chris Christie: when a fat man falls, he falls hard. First he wanted to be president but it didn’t work out for him. Then he was briefly in charge of Trump’s transition but got fired. Then he was hoping to be Attorney General but “Uh uh,” said Trump. Finally, he was willing to settle for being head of the RNC but apparently Trump has other ideas there, too.
Tony the Cowardly Pussy Cat. Kellogg Company has decided to blackball Breitbart.com because the website’s conservative views are not “aligned with our values as a company.” Only one way to interpret this: Kellogg’s is not interested in selling you breakfast cereal unless you voted for Hillary Clinton or Jill Stein.
House Democrats retain Nancy Pelosi as their leader. What’s that called when people do the same thing over and over expecting a different result?
Jill Stein missed filing deadline for Pennsylvania recount. What a ditz. After raising millions of dollars to fund her recount, she couldn’t afford a calendar?
Poetic justice in the NFL. The back story: Colin Kaepernick, the America-bashing dipshit who kneels during the national anthem, arrived in Miami for yesterday’s game wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt and was argumentative with the press about defending the mass-murdering thug. The story: on the last play of the game, as Kaepernick was headed for the endzone with a chance to tie the game, he was held up by one Dolphin and then utterly flattened by the son of a Cuban immigrant to end the game… the icing on the cake for about two million Cuban-Americans who had a very good Thanksgiving weekend.
British regulators ban television ad for Heinz Beans. Nanny state bureaucrats thought the sight of people using empty Heinz Beans cans as percussion instruments might encourage people to copy the activity and cut themselves on a jagged edge.
Another Obama first: a drag queen performance in the White House. Between the rap stars, the child molesters, and the drag queens, they will need to fumigate that place when the Obamas move out.
CNN’s Boston channel accidentally broadcast 30 minutes of porn last night. Both viewers found the incident amusing.
Jill Stein filing for recount in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Because, you know, she came this close to winning the presidency.
CNN hits new low when white liberal uses n-word on live TV. And that’s not even the worst part. This nutjob was accusing Stephen Bannon of having used the word but had to apologize a couple hours later for having his facts wrong. “I mistook Bannon for Sessions,” said the nutjob. Oh, but wait: there’s no evidence that Sessions ever used the word either!
Woman investigating Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s links to pedophilia… dies mysteriously in Haiti. Maybe the Clinton family made her an offer she couldn’t refuse and she refused?
