UK has a Bias Incident Response Team. If you ask your toaster if it’s infected, will it tell the truth? So what will happen to Babylon Bee? Bomb-shelters are the new home saunas. Big discovery.

Jan. 7. 1934 The Karlsruhe Football Club has been prohibited from playing throughout 1934 because the team failed to give the Nazi salute on entering the field against a French club at Nancy in December. The abstention was alleged to be due to the Frenchmen threatening not to play with- out the promise of compensation if the salute were given because they feared that the spectators would indulge in a riot. All the sports clubs of Baden have been for- bidden to accept French engagements until the incident has been settled. A message from Essen states that two professors controlling the hospitals there have been sentenced to three and four months’ imprisonment respectively for having falsely disparaged Nazism. A busi- ness man and a typist have been sentenced to Imprisonment, and another typist has been fined £100 on similar charges.” May 25, 2018 8:39 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 “Ex-mayor Reed’s PCard Golden Ticket” What is it about Atlanta mayors and blatant corruption?

But crafty Trump was able to trick the Rocket Man into totally destroying North Korea’s nuclear testing capabilities before blindsiding ally South Korea in announcing the meeting with Kim was off. Call the Nobel Committee! With Kim having been handled, Trump with GOP complicity if not support can resume focus on pandering to the deplorables and undermining the American system of government to distract from his grifting.

Her administration is already on the hook for an ORR violation to mitigate MKR grift. May 28, 2018 1:29 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant Chicken feed. Judging from past experience someone should look into the $7 Billion airport beautification deal. Judging from past experience even if they do, everything will be found to be copacetic unless the Feds get involved. The airport has been the real cash cow for the mayor’s office for decades, even pre-Maynard. May 28, 2018 5:01 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
