01) Trump Rails Against Greta Thunberg


“Trump held a Two-Minute-Hate on Greta Thunberg during one of his rallies.

Donald Trump’s Colorado Springs rally has booed the name of climate activist Greta Thunberg, who he mentioned as he complained that he should be honoured as Time magazine’s Person of the Year every year.

Mr Trump attacked the 17-year-old by noting she had beat him out for the magazine honour in 2019, but noted that he has won in the past. He has previously complained about losing to Ms Thunberg, notably during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland earlier this year.

“This year I got beaten out by Greta — you know Greta?” he said, prompting the boos.

“Last year I got beaten out — I’ve won it, but when the world revolves around all of us, we should be chosen,” he continued, twirling his finger in a circle on stage. “I mean, we’ve won it. But we should win it every single year.

01) Honda e: the EV that electric car haters love – Jonny Smith CarPervert


“The Honda e is probably the most fascinating EV without a Tesla badge. In fact it’s probably more fascinating, because its design alone captured the attention and desire of legions of car enthusiasts who don’t even bloody like electric cars.
This 137 mile range Pokemon faced thing has a 35.5kWh battery pack which can be rapid charged in half an hour at 100kw. 0-62 takes 8.3 seconds with this 150hp launch edition car, but you will be able to option it with 134hp thereafter.

On paper it almost loses in every respect to its plug-in peers, but there’s a charm to the £27,000 e, and for some that’s enough. Using the power of finance you’ll be able to live with one from under £300 a month. Regardless of whether you give a toss about zero emission cars, there is no denying this kind of design is precisely what Honda does best. I hope they do more small, slightly-retro-but-not rear wheel drive cars in the near future. Oh, the power of dreams…”

01) Kaitlin Bennett’s Crappy Stunt Goes WRONG


“Kaitlin Bennett’s career is in the crapper.

Conservative media personality Kaitlin Bennett didn’t announce she was visiting Ohio University. But hundreds of students showed up to protest her appearance.

Bennett, a controversial activist who drew attention for taking graduation photos with an AR-10 rifle strapped to her back at Kent State University, said she was in Athens, Ohio, on Monday to film a video for Presidents Day.

But as soon as students got word she was there, crowds of protesters descended on Bennett as she walked around the campus.

In footage captured by Sarah Donaldson, digital editor for student paper The New Political, students lined all five floors of the university’s student center as Bennett and her bodyguard traveled down the escalator.

01) EVIL PUNISHMENT Sadistic mother and stepfather who made son kneel on pile of buckwheat so it grew into his skin, jailed

“THE sadistic mother and stepfather who made their son kneel on a pile of buckwheat – causing it to grow into his skin – have been jailed.

They forced their son to kneel on buckwheat crops for nine hours at a time as part of a cruel punishment.

The boys knees were bloodied from where he was forced to kneel on the sharp kernels for up to nine hours at a time.

His dad can be seen kicking him in this video released to the court.

The boy’s dad, 35-year-old Sergey Kazakov, and mom, 27-year-old Alina Yumasheva, carried out the painful punishment on their son for 10 days in a row, according to a court in Omsk, Russia.

Kazakov and Yumasheva were found guilty of “inflicting physical and psychological suffering” to their son, Denis, through “systematic beatings and other violent actions,” Metro UK reported.

The boy, who possibly faces adoption as he has been placed into an orphanage, needed the buckwheat roots to be surgically removed from his knees after they began growing in his skin.

His torture only ended when he fled the family home and pleaded with a neighbor to help, showing his horrendous wounds.

Yumasheva claimed she and Kazakov found this form of punishment on the internet and inflicted it on the child after he was late home from school and playing outside.

The couple of also starved the boy for up to four days at a time, claim state investigators.”

…and they sent this boy back to live with his mother, presumably in the same house this all took place in.

He pleaded for this not to happen.

01) Pete Buttigieg’s Norwegian Is TERRIBLE


“Pete Buttigieg claims to speak Norwegian, doesn’t sound like it.

Just days after Pete Buttigieg slipped up on his Spanish,

he was quizzed on two less common languages: Maltese and Norwegian.

During a CNN town hall Tuesday night, host Erin Burnett put the former South Bend, Indiana mayor on the spot, asking him to try to say “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” in the two languages.

He gamely tried in Maltese, then added “A bunch of Maltese people are going to like tweet me how I got that wrong.

‘Parasite’ Studio WRECKS Trump…

01) ‘Parasite’ Studio WRECKS Trump


“Trump attacked the movie ‘Parasite’ during one of his recent rallies.

The movie studio behind the South Korean film “Parasite” hit back on Thursday after President Trump criticized the foreign-language film for winning best picture at the 2020 Academy Awards.

“Understandable, he can’t read,” Neon tweeted from its official account with a link to Trump’s comments.

“Parasite” made history earlier this month when it became the first non-English film to win the top prize at the Oscars in the award show’s 92-year history.

The class warfare satire, directed by Bong Joon-ho, dominated the night with a total of four wins, including in the directing, international feature and original screenplay categories.

Trump, however, knocked the dark comedy during a campaign rally in Colorado.

“By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year?” Trump asked as his crowd of supporters booed before suggesting an American movie should have won.

I loathe and condemn cancel culture, so I do not support canceling Chris Matthews…But, by all means, do keep critiquing him.

If these guys want to keep clowning themselves like this, make it clear what they are doing.

…Censoring voices is never a good option…It causes far more, far deeper, far more infuriating problems, than it could ever even hope to “solve”.

If you support or enforce cancel culture…you are part of a much broader, far more threatening social problem, than whatever it is you claim to be fighting against…

…End of discussion.
