(CNN)Wendy Williams is getting divorced.
Williams filed the a petition to divorce her husband of more than 20 years, Kevin Hunter, in New Jersey on Thursday morning, according to a friend of the talk show host.
A representative for Williams declined to comment.
"Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years," a spokesperson from "The Wendy Williams Show" said to CNN in a statement. "We respect their privacy regarding personal matters. As always, we remain committed to bringing an entertaining and topical show to our viewers."

Williams and Hunter married in 1997 and together they have a 19-year-old son. Hunter serves as Williams' manager and is also a producer on her show.
The news comes after she announced on her show last month that she was living in a sober house.
"I have been living in a sober house," she said through tears. "You know, I've had a struggle with cocaine in the past. I never went to a place to get treatment. There are people in your family; it might be you. I want you to know more of the story."

Viewers became concerned in November 2017 after Williams fainted on air. She appeared to be battling health problems again the following year when she her speech was slurred during an interview on her show.
Following a two-month break to focus on her health, Williams returned to her show on March 4. She addressed speculation that her marriage was in trouble at the time by telling viewers, "I'm still very much in love with my husband and anyone who's been married. Marriages have ebbs and flows, marriage isn't easy. And don't ask me about mine until you see this gone. And it ain't going anywhere, not in this lifetime."

Kris Kobach makes case for Homeland Security job, plans detention camps with FEMA trailers

Kohack....still wanting to lick stumpys shoes...

Kris Kobach appears to be auditioning for a top job in President Donald Trump’s administration, defending hard-line immigration policies in frequent TV and radio appearances and promoting a three-step plan for solving the border crisis.

The former Kansas secretary of state’s flurry of activity began two weeks before Kirstjen Nielsen’s resignation as Homeland Security secretary directed a spotlight toward possible replacements. Kobach’s willingness to carry out legally provocative immigration policies makes him an obvious candidate to take over for Nielsen, but his ability to secure U.S. Senate confirmation remains in doubt.

Nielsen abruptly resigned over the weekend as anti-immigration conservatives intensified scrutiny of her efforts to repel huddled masses on the southern border. Kobach had already outlined actions the administration could take immediately in a plan that revolves around the creation of confined camps, or “processing centers,” for detained families.

Asylum seekers enter the United States through checkpoints along the border with Mexico and plead for relief from violence, human trafficking or drought. They are tracked with an electronic monitoring device, and their case is assigned to a federal judge.

Kobach’s idea is to deploy judges and a fleet of planes to border towns, along with thousands of mobile home trailers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

As Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs complained that Nielsen was working against the president last week, Kobach explained how such a processing system would work.

“When someone comes in and claims asylum, we don’t release them for six months onto the streets of the United States,” Kobach said. “We process them right there in that camp where they have three square meals, they’re living in a nice mobile home, and then as soon as they’re done, as soon as the claim is rejected, they’re on the next plane back home.

“And then the people back home suddenly realize, hey, he just left two weeks ago and yet he’s back. Maybe going in these caravans isn’t such a great deal anymore.”

Dobbs gushed over Kobach’s “brilliant” ideas.

“You’ve just come up with more answers in five minutes than we’ve heard from the Department of Homeland Security in quite some time,” Dobbs said.

Ethan Corson, executive director of the Kansas Democratic Party, said Kobach’s plan sounds cruel and inhumane.

“It seems like a plan for more costly and time-consuming litigation that would do nothing to actually make us more safe, but it would serve his perpetual goal of staying in the news,” Corson said.

Clearly, Corson said, Kobach is auditioning for a job.

In addition to making the rounds on Fox News programs, Kobach has been featured in several “exclusive” reports at Breitbart, the far-right commentary website for which Kobach is a contributing author.

Before Nielsen’s departure, Kobach told Breitbart he would consider being Trump’s immigration czar, as long as the position wields real power and isn’t just a “fantasy title.”

“If the president feels the need to tap me to serve, I’m certainly going to consider that,” Kobach said.

Kobach, who said last year that he turned down several offers from the White House so he could run for governor, was an early supporter of Trump and led the president’s commission on voter fraud.

Best flashlight for working on cars?

I've a couple of mini lights but for close in work under a dark car hood, they are too bright.
The 60 watt light in my elect. trouble light is just about right..Sometimes though, for a quick
look at, say a carb, I'd like a hand-held flashlight..or mini or whatever they are called. Just not
super bright...


SEC sides with Exxon by blocking major climate vote

Source: CNN

New York (CNN Business)ExxonMobil has dodged a climate change shareholder vote — with some help from the SEC.
The agency granted Exxon's request to block a shareholder resolution that would have urged the oil behemoth to adopt and disclose greenhouse gas emissions targets on its business and products in line with the Paris climate accord.
The SEC ruled that the nonbinding proposal, which was backed by investors with $9.5 trillion in assets, would "micromanage" Exxon (XOM) by seeking to impose "specific methods for implementing complex policies" in place of managerial judgment.
The decision deals a blow to momentum in the investment community to coax fossil fuel companies to come to terms with the realities of climate change. Exxon's European rivals have already agreed to adopt similar emissions targets.

It must kill these angels of nature to see what a buffoon like cheetox does to destroy it..the environment, our home.


“The question is, Are we going to be in time, and are we going to do enough? And the answer to both of those is no,” he says. “We won’t be able to do enough to mend everything. But we can make it a darn sight better than it would be if we didn’t do anything at all.”
