An elementary school in Austin, Texas invited a convicted felon drag queen to talk to children having either ignored or failed to carry out a full background check.
The Blackshear Fine Arts Academy invited Miss Kitty Litter ATX (real name David Robinson) to spend time with kids despite Robinson being a convicted prostitute.
Emails between the school’s librarian, Roger Grape, and Robinson suggest that Robinson knew he wouldn’t pass a background check and the school either ignored it or failed to carry one out.

YouTube has begun to purge accounts that they have decided violate “acceptable thoughts.” The censorship is continuing and exponentially skyrocketing on all social media platforms.
It seems like George Orwell warned us all of this in his iconic book, 1984. Apparently, the government (obviously in bed with big corporations like YouTube and Google) will use companies to make sure no one has any thoughts that are not acceptable to the ruling class.

Virginia is the new battleground of the Second Amendment. After the most recent election, the state’s House and Senate are both Democrat majorities and they haven’t wasted a moment in attempting to gut the gun laws in what has historically been a permissive state.
What are these new gun laws?
The so-called “assault weapon ban” is SB16 and has that perilously vague wording we all know to be incredibly dangerous. In some interpretations, this law, if it passes, could make illegal the ownership or transportation of any semi-automatic gun because extendable magazines are available for it – and you don’t even have to have the extendable mags.

If you’ve gone on the internet this week, you’ve likely seen that 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg was chosen as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019. Congratulations Ms. Thunberg. This is a huge accomplishment, especially at the age of 16, which is a record for the youngest person ever to receive this honor.
by Sean Walton, The Daily Sheeple:
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said during a committee hearing on Dec. 11 that America can’t wait until 2020 to see if President Donald Trump gets beaten by a Democrat.
“We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems, when the president threatens the very integrity of that election,” Nadler claimed.
He was speaking during a tense markup of articles of impeachment against the president.
Democrats say Trump obstructed the congressional investigation into his alleged use of the presidency to demand a foreign government attack his political rivals.

18 years and tens of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars too late, it’s nice to see the media finally shame these scumbags and their government handlers. But they ought to save a big portion of the blame for themselves.
“In ten years or so, we’ll leak the truth,” the Dead Kennedys sang. “But by then it’s only so much paper.”
But it might just score you a Pulitzer Prize.
Award bait and bragging rights are no doubt the principal goals of The Washington Post’s self-congratulatory data dump, “The Afghanistan Papers.” As the headline implies, the 2000 pages that a court ordered the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction to release to Jeff Bezos’ newspaper paints a Robert McNamara-esque portrait of not-so-best-or-bright Bush and Obama Administration bozos privately admitting what they knew all along—that the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was always an unwinnable, counterproductive mistake—at the same time they were telling the American people that victory in the post-9/11 “good war” was right around the corner. All we had to win was win Afghan hearts and minds.

Back in October 2018, Goldcorp was trading at its lowest level in 16 years.
This was before Goldcorp merged with Newmont, one of the world’s largest and oldest gold producers.
Goldcorp wasn’t alone. Shares of precious metal mining companies were decimated in a horrid year for gold stocks.
The last time Goldcorp traded below $9 was in 2002. That was back when gold was trading for under $300 an ounce.
