Headline: Nikki Haley on 2024 White House campaign: 'Why not me?'

Maybe because you're a lying sack of hypocrisy? I won't link to the stupid article since it's worthless.

Everyone's for sale - especially some golfers

Paulina Gretzky explains Dustin Johnson's decision to join LIV Golf

Dustin Johnson generated headlines when he decided to join LIV Golf last year. Fans were left questioning the top athlete.
Why would one of the world’s best golfers leave the PGA Tour?
Johnson, 38, has repeatedly stated that his decision was in his family’s best interest. He is married to Paulina Gretzky, daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, and the couple have two children.
In the Netflix series "Full Swing," Paulina Gretzky shed light on Johnson’s career-altering move.

"I don’t think Dustin would ever make bad choice for his children and people have to understand at the end of the day, that’s who he chose this for," Gretzky said via the New York Post. "Of course, I get what everyone’s saying, but my dad being a hockey player [NHL Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky] — I’m sure as a kid, there were times when I’m like like, ‘Why does my dad have to play on my birthday?’ This is about Dustin and the kids and me and taking care of us and being there with us."
Dustin Johnson watches his ball after hitting a tee shot on the 16th during the second round of the LIV Golf tournament at The International.
Johnson left PGA Tour in 2022

Johnson received a four-year deal worth reportedly $125 million from LIV Golf. According to Palm Beach Post reporter Tom D’Angelo, Johnson had made around $75 million in 15 years on the PGA Tour prior to defecting.

"I’ve had a wonderful career on the PGA Tour and I’m very proud of it, and always will be," Johnson said during the show. "Obviously now I’ve taken kinda of a different step in my life and career."

However, the decision hasn’t come without backlash.
What do other golfers say about LIV?

Several golfers have been outspoken about the LIV Golf Series. Rory McIlroy has been vocal regarding LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman. McIlroy stated that Norman "needs to go" amid the controversy between sides.

Well Paulina, did you tell your kids that Daddy is now working for a regime of oil slick royalty with one of the worst human rights records in history? Do you have a daughter? Would you like her to grow up under the regime of those same people paying your husband's check? But who cares, it's someone else, right?

DeSantis Now Says Teachers Are Shelving Books to Make Him Look Bad - Daily Beast

They're manufacturing that to try to create a narrative,” he said during a press conference Tuesday. DeSantis was backed by Florida’s Commissioner of Education Manny Diaz, who called the controversial rules that have forced costly reviews and book removals “fake news.”

“Florida does not ban books, and this particular book on baseball legend Roberto Clemente is currently on school bookshelves across the state!” Diaz tweeted.

However, a spokesperson for the school district pointed out that Clemente’s book is one of 1.6 million titles under review following the state’s restrictive new laws, which have impacted teachers’ ability to teach about topics including race, gender and sexuality in Florida.


Now he's backtracking because he's getting shit from everywhere. Take it to your weird Christo-fascists in Fla Ron - normal people know what you are.

Nikki Haley launches GOP campaign by insulting Americans age 75 and over

Watch out, mid-to-upper septuagenarians. Newly minted GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley has questions about your mental acuity!

The South Carolina governor and former U.N. ambassador formally launched her campaign Wednesday with, among other things, a call for “mandatory mental competency tests for politicians over 75 years old.”

That line was surely aimed at pleasing Republicans who’ve convinced themselves that 80-year-old President Joe Biden is senile (while also being a devious criminal and an all-powerful leftist singlehandedly transforming America into a socialist hellscape). But it was also a shot at 76-year-old former President Donald Trump, also a candidate, and at a sizable swath of the GOP’s most reliable base of voters.

More stupidity at:


**I think in the GOP they should start testing anyone between the age of 16 and 50 - that's where most of the really weird crazies exist in their party.

Gun rights, TikTok, China: George Santos says 'I'm not leaving.' Here's what he's cosponsoring

Source: USAToday

WASHINGTON – A lack of committee assignments, an ethics complaint, and calls for his ouster have not stopped George Santos from cosponsoring legislation.

The New York Republican, facing mounting criticism and calls to resign from his GOP colleagues for fabricating his resume and lying about his background, has joined with his colleagues to cosponsor 16 bills so far this Congress.

On Tuesday, Santos doubled down on his refusal to leave Congress: "Let me be very clear, I’m not leaving, I’m not hiding and I am NOT backing down," he wrote on Twitter.

The measures include legislation that addresses U.S. relations with China, expanding gun rights, banning TikTok on college campuses, and minting coins for working dogs.

Another conservative faces public shunning. Liberals grow bolder with their intolerance.

Last weekend, Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell was trying to enjoy breakfast with friends in Miami when he made the unforgivable error of discussing his political beliefs. 

That caught the attention of one of the cafe’s owners, who informed the conservative commentator that his politics weren’t palatable in the restaurant and told the group that “the language they were using was unwelcome in our space.” 

Caldwell, who is Black, took to social media to vent about the incident, and he talked about it on “Fox & Friends Weekend” the next day. Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell says he was asked to leave a restaurant in Miami because of his conservative political views.

“No matter your politics you should not be discriminated against,” he said on Twitter. “I was discriminated against for being a conservative and told to leave a restaurant in North Miami because my politics didn’t ‘align’ with the owner. This is NOT okay.”

On the Fox News segment, Caldwell said the incident was a “grave injustice” and reminiscent of the Jim Crow South. 

First of all, I don't know if I should believe this or not since Fux Nooze lies thru their noses. But assuming it did happen, I think comparing it to Jim Crow was a bit of a stretch.

Greene, Gosar reinstated to committee by GOP-led House after Democrats had removed them

Source: USAToday

WASHINGTON – Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia GOP congresswoman stripped of her committee assignments two years ago by the Democratic-led House following a series of menacing social media posts, has been reinstated by the Republicans who now run the chamber.

Greene was named Tuesday to the Homeland Security Committee, her spokesman confirmed to USA TODAY. 

In addition, Republicans reinstated Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, who similarly had been removed from his committees after being censured in 2021 for posting an anime video that was edited to show him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and attacking President Joe Biden.

Gosar was named to the Committee on Natural Resources, according to his spokesperson. 

Both Greene and Gosar could still be added to other committees as House leadership releases more assignments this week.

From the "Stupid Headlines" Dept

In USAToday (today) ,
" What's going to happen in Washington over the next 2 years? Americans don't expect much "

The headline should read:

" Maybe the idea that you just vote for the opposite party at the midterms was a bad idea" instead of asking those same idiots how things will go after they screwed it up.

Any word from the voters of New York's 3rd congressional district?

Why aren't the voters of that district starting a writing campaign against their lying, cheating and stealing congressman they claim they didn't know they voted for? Shouldn't they be going door to door asking each other to write to the speaker of the house to sanction or expel him from the house so they can have someone that only lies a little but really graduated from somewhere?
