Newsom: Not so fast on those reparations

https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2023/05/10/newsom-not-so-fast-on-those-reparations-n549774

Quote
We recently looked at the proposal from California’s task force on reparations and its suggestion that Black residents should be paid up to a million dollars each. When reached for comment, Governor Gavin Newsom was full of praises for the task force, citing the “important work” it had done. But he hedged on the idea of writing checks of that size. He instead attempted to broaden the conversation, saying that reparations are “about much more than cash payments.” How do you suppose that’s going to fly with the legislature’s hard-left progressives? I’m guessing it won’t go over very well. (NY Post)

Quote
California Gov. Gavin Newsom declined to throw his support behind cash payments of up to $1.2 million for black residents recommended by his reparations task force, according to a report.

The Democratic governor told Fox News Digital on Tuesday that reparations — meant to take responsibility for the country’s history of slavery and systemic racism — “is about much more than cash payments.”

He called the task force’s findings a milestone in the effort to advance justice.

Official Democrat Narrative Setter Is Vewy, Vewy Angwy About Tucker Carlson's New Gig

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/victoria-taft/2023/05/10/official-democrat-narrative-setter-is-vewy-vewy-angwy-about-tucker-carlsons-new-gig-n1693957

Quote
The Democrats’  narrative setters, paid for by George Soros, have now decreed that Tucker Carlson’s reemergence on Twitter is vewy, vewy bad and they are vewy, vewy angwy.

Poor, poor Media Matters.

Carlson announced Tuesday he would be silent no longer and would produce his show on Twitter !

David Brock and the Left’s leftover minions at the political snuff site haven’t been this angry since the Democrats’ FBI failed to kill the reputation of the My Pillow Guy and send it to the bottom of Lake Winnibigoshish in a pair of cement-filled My Slippers. It’s a disaster almost as shocking as cheerleading Russia! Russia! Russia! only to have Americans discover Hillary’s collusion hoax was as fatuous as her granny pants.  It’s a blow as bad as Air America crashing into the side of George Bush Mountain.

And after spending years of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” against Fox News, Brock and Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters for America, are spitting tacks that their latest deposed Fox News host didn’t go quietly into that good night but may emerge bigger and louder than ever.

I have no horse in this race, being neither a Tucker fan nor non-fan. The current rumor is that canning Tucker was part of the Dominion lawsuit settlement. If so, Fox agreed to an existential risk. If Fox recovers from this move it may take a year or years. Brilliant!

Wokeness Kills: Bud Light Sales Nosedive Continues, and Now Other Anheuser-Busch Brands Are Suffering, Too

https://pjmedia.com/culture/robert-spencer/2023/05/10/wokness-kills-bud-light-sales-nosedive-continues-and-now-other-anheuser-busch-brands-are-suffering-too-n1694098

Quote
Go woke, go broke? Sure looks like it. Bud Light’s sales went into a nosedive immediately after the brand decided to showcase fake woman Dylan Mulvaney as its frontman, and the exodus shows no sign of slowing down. Now even other Anheuser-Busch brands are seeing sales declines, as the American people continue to register their disgust with being forced to accept and validate the trans madness even when all they wanted to do was grab a cold one.

The New York Post reported the good news on Tuesday: Anheuser-Busch’s dalliance with the pretend woman could wind up costing it billions of dollars in revenue. Bud Light earned $4.8 billion last year, with Modelo Especial raking in $3.75 billion, Michelob Ultra $3.3 billion, and Budweiser $1.83 billion. But so far this year, “Bud Light and Budweiser are the only top 10 US beers whose sales have dropped, with declines of 3% and 0.4%, respectively.”

The Post explained that “nationwide retail sales of Bud Light were down 23.4% versus a year ago in the week of April 29 — worse than the 21.4% decline it suffered a week earlier, according to Bump Williams Consulting and NielsenIQ data.” Hey, that’s terrific! Patriots can celebrate by popping open a… Yuengling.

Joe Kapp, former Vikings star QB who led team to Super Bowl, dead at 85

https://www.foxnews.com/sports/joe-kapp-former-vikings-star-qb-led-team-super-bowl-dead

Quote
Joe Kapp, a one-time Pro Bowl quarterback who led the Minnesota Vikings to an NFL Championship and Super Bowl appearance during the 1969 season, has died. He was 85.

Kapp had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease these last few years. Kapp’s son, J.J., told The San Francisco Chronicle late Monday night that his father had died "after a 15-year battle with dementia."

Alzheimer’s is a sad and slow way to die.

They got smacked when they swung the pendulum, and now they got smacked when they tried to swing it back. They should have expected this reaction to backing away from Mulvaney.

San Francisco bill would prevent private security guards from carrying guns

https://thepostmillennial.com/san-francisco-bill-would-prevent-private-security-guards-from-carrying-guns

Quote
On Tuesday, San Francisco District 5 Supervisor Dean Preston announced that he would be introducing legislation aimed at limiting the use of guns by security guards at businesses across the city.

The self-proclaimed "democratic socialist" said the current laws give security personell too much freedom to resort to violence to protect property, and suggested the rules should be amended to prohibit them from using weapons when there is no physical danger present.

This should hasten the exodus of retail stores and retail customers from downtown SF. The thieves and thugs will know security people have been emasculated and act accordingly.

Fed researchers: $15 minimum wage in Minneapolis and St. Paul boosted pay — but cost jobs

https://www.minnpost.com/metro/2023/05/fed-researchers-15-minimum-wage-in-minneapolis-and-st-paul-boosted-pay-but-cost-jobs/

Quote
The push to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour in both Minneapolis and St. Paul has successfully boosted the average worker’s hourly pay in both cities, but it has also led to sharp drops in the numbers of available jobs and hours worked, new research from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis has found.

Many economists have reached similar conclusions about minimum wage increases in the past. Still, the size of the impacts the researchers measured — by comparing Minneapolis and St. Paul to data culled from other Minnesota cities from 2017 through 2021 — were eye-popping, especially in low-wage industries.

Take Minneapolis’ retail sector, for example: The minimum wage increase led to 28% fewer retail jobs than researchers would’ve expected from a similar city during the same five-year period. By this comparison, Minneapolis also saw a 20% drop in hours worked and a 13% dip in aggregate worker earnings.

Across St. Paul’s restaurant industry, the city’s 2018 minimum wage hike was responsible for drying up nearly one-third of available jobs, the study found. In “limited-service” (fast food) restaurants, both hours and earnings fell by more than half after the increase took effect.

The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes again. Predictably.

Pete, any idea whether or not this clown's bill will make it through the process and become local law? This idiot Dean Preston apparently believes that businesses will just keep absorbing these losses and not blink an eye when the thieves come a'callin'.

There's apparently some opposition to Clown Preston's bill:

Quote
"Human life is more important than property," he stated. "We need to change our local laws so that security guards cannot unholster their weapons just to protect property.

Reaction to Preston's statements was mixed, with many arguing that while the idea that life was more valuable than property had merit, his ire should be directed not at the security guards, but at the criminals putting themselves at risk by breaking the law in the first place.

Buffalo Bills Punter a Victim of False Rape Accusations

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/megan-fox/2023/05/09/buffalo-bills-punter-victim-of-false-rape-accusations-n1693959

Quote
In August of last year the Buffalo Bills cut punter Matt Araiza after he was hit with a lawsuit alleging that he was part of a gang rape at a party. The problem is, it turns out the victim is a big liar — and after viewing videos of the alleged incident and talking to witnesses, the prosecutor declined to press charges. The alleged victim’s initial charges read like a horror novel.
...
Too bad for the accused,  as none of it was real. Of course, their lives were all ruined. Araiza lost his NFL contract, which he worked his whole life to get.

Quote
Araiza remains out of football despite prosecutors announcing on Dec. 7, 2022, that after conducting their own 124-day investigation, they wouldn’t press any criminal charges in the case. ...

A fuller picture of what police and prosecutors found, however, is now available via a 200-plus-page transcript obtained by Yahoo Sports of a 100-minute meeting in which a deputy district attorney offered a detailed explanation to the girl and her attorneys.

Perhaps most notably, the district attorney’s office concluded that Araiza couldn’t have led the girl into the alleged gang rape because he “left” the home at about 12:30 a.m., an hour prior to when evidence suggested the alleged gang rape would have occurred.

Until false accusers and perjurers receive the same consequences the falsely accused would have received, false accusations and perjury will flourish. Some wise guy knew that almost 3500 years ago.

BUD LIGHT COSTUME GUY ARRESTED FOR DUI AS BRAND KEEPS TAKING LS

https://www.outkick.com/bud-light-costume-guy-arrested-for-dui-as-brand-keeps-taking-ls/

And now the Franklin County (KS) Sheriff’s Office goes and does this.

“A career in law enforcement is exciting, and you get to experience something new every day. Sometimes you see things you can’t believe!” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook over the weekend.

“Yesterday, our deputies were notified of a possible intoxicated driver traveling northbound on Interstate 35. The vehicle was located and eventually pulled over. Deputies were surprised to see that the driver was wearing a beer can costume.

“Yes, you read that correctly. The driver was eventually placed under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol and transported to the Franklin County Jail. As always, suspects are innocent until proven guilty.”

I wonder if the dude qualifies as an "open container"?

I wonder if the dude qualifies as an "open container"?

Since his head is sticking out of the top of the costume/can, it is thus considered open. The bigger question might be, "Is the can full, half-empty, or empty?" It would have to be at least partially full since there's a bladder on the inside of that can and the bladder might even be REALLY full depending how much the guy drank.  :stoner:

Here's the context for the SF Stuporvisor's proposal to disarm security guards:

Walgreens Killing: Here’s What We Know About Banko Brown’s Shooting by a Security Guard

https://sfstandard.com/criminal-justice/walgreens-killing-heres-what-we-know-about-banko-browns-shooting-by-a-security-guard/

Quote
An altercation broke out when the security guard, Michael Earl-Wayne Anthony, tried to stop Brown for shoplifting, the chief said. Anthony, 33, was still inside the store when Brown stepped outside and turned toward him. Brown then allegedly spit on the security guard and raised his arm toward him before Anthony drew his gun and fired, Scott said.

The shooting and subsequent decision by District Attorney Brooke Jenkins not to charge Anthony with murder sparked outcry from Brown’s supporters, who said Brown did not deserve to die for allegedly shoplifting. They viewed the killing of Brown, who was Black and transgender, as an extension of the challenges facing those communities in San Francisco.
...
However, Jenkins said Monday that she would not be able to prove a murder case against Anthony to a jury based on witness statements, statements from Anthony and video footage of the incident.

“The evidence clearly shows that the suspect believed he was in mortal danger and acted in self-defense,” Jenkins said in a statement.

The Standard previously reported via an anonymous source that Brown allegedly threatened to stab Anthony.


Jenkins is under political pressure to reverse her decision. Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin said he would ask his colleagues to pass legislation urging Jenkins to reconsider filing charges, saying that he believed the case could be tried at least as manslaughter if not murder.

IMO, Jenkins would be entirely justified to tell the Board of Stuporvisors the STHU (keeping it clean). More on the Stupovisors' pressure:

SF Supes Pass Resolution Calling for Release of Walgreens Shooting Footage

https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/san-francisco/sf-supes-resolution-walgreens-shooting-video-footage/3225590/

Quote
San Francisco supervisors passed a resolution Tuesday calling on the district attorney to release security camera footage in the shooting death of Banko Brown.

District Attorney Brooke Jenkins decided not to file criminal charges against the Walgreens security guard who pulled the trigger.

With no criminal charges filed, community members say they want to see videos of the incident to make up their own minds.

"When there is information that is being kept from the public, we feel like there's something amiss going on," San Francisco Democratic Party chairperson Honey Mahogany said. "It undermines our faith in local government."

Why in Hades should any resident have "faith in local government" when that government tries to pervert justice for political gain?

I'm glad the Rittenhousing of the security guard has, at least for now, failed. The killing of Banko Brown is another case being framed as someone being killed over property. As per usual, that's not what actually happened.

SF Supes Pass Resolution Calling for Release of Walgreens Shooting Footage

Why in Hades should any resident have "faith in local government" when that government tries to pervert justice for political gain?

Mildly curious to know how much shoplifting has gone on since this incident occurred. When the thugs realize that stealing stuff can result in their own lives being snuffed out. maybe -- just maybe -- some of the thievery stops.

But this is San Fransicko. No shortage of crazies there, I would imagine.

Many/most Walgreens in SF have closed, probably prior to this. Between this and the current Board of Stuporvisors' politicization, I really have no clue whether shoplifting has increased or decreased at SF Walgreens. What should happen is thugs going elsewhere due to increased risk, but with the Stuporvisors trying to disarm security people and trying to railroad the security guard who killed the thug, :shrug: .
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

Why is it, Pete, that you seem to be the only guy in the SF area with any kind of common sense?  :rotf: :lmao:
