“Fox News and some of its hosts are in trouble.
A federal lawsuit filed Monday alleges ex-Fox News host Ed Henry raped a woman he had “groomed” and “coerced” into having a sexual relationship when she did not comply voluntarily.
The lawsuit, filed by Douglas Wigdor and Michael Willemin on behalf of Jennifer Eckhart and Cathy Areu, also alleges Fox News supported and promoted Henry after receiving complaints of sexually inappropriate behavior and only fired him earlier this month because they were aware of an impending lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges Henry sexually harassed both women and raped Eckhart.

“Conservatives are going after Trump for his use of federal police.
Andrew Napolitano slammed the Trump administration for sending federal law enforcement to Portland in response to violent protests in Oregon’s largest city, with the Fox News senior judicial analyst calling the move “unconstitutional” and “just plain wrong.”
His remarks come as Portland officials have requested the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) withdraw after videos of protesters being taken off the street by federal officers in unmarked cars prompted outrage.
“You have anarchy on one hand,” Napolitano said. “If the troops come in the streets, you have a potential for even more violence on the other hand.”

“Trump has ordered the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston.
The United States government has abruptly ordered China to “cease all operations and events” at its consulate in Houston, Texas, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, in what it called an “unprecedented escalation” in recent actions taken by Washington.
Late Tuesday evening, police in Houston said they responded to reports of smoke in the courtyard outside the consulate, located on Montrose Boulevard, in the city’s Midtown area. Local media shared video of what appeared to be officials inside the compound burning documents.

“Technology is advancing at an exponential rate. 6000 years ago, writing was invented. It took 5500 years to get to the printing press. 400 years later, the first computers would help us land on the moon. Today, everyone carries in their pocket a supercomputer 100,000x more powerful than the one on Apollo 11. And now, we are literally merging our brains with computers to unleash a symbiosis between us and AI. This rate of advancement is leading to what is called the singularity, a point where technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization. Futurists predict this to happen in the year 2045.”
Wait a minute…
About six and a half minutes in…
Being someone who does accept the strong likelihood that death means the end of all things, including consciousness…
…Why on earth would it be logical, that I would fear returning to a state that I am unable to comprehend anything…including consciousness, itself?
There is nothing to fear in that…and this is a logical fallacy, which so many people default to.
If you are incapable of being afraid, bored, tormented…whatever…then the only thing honestly left, is remorse over how you have lived your life, or dissatisfaction over having missed out on something, as death approaches.
There is no good reason to fear the state of being dead.

“Krystal Ball pays tribute to friend of the show, Michael Brooks.”
I’m going to leave this post entirely open to whatever people want to say about my opinion, or this issue…So, anyone wanting to call me an asshole…this is your prime opportunity to do it, without it getting moved elsewhere or deleted…
Lots of progressive media personalities are gushing over “how angelic Michael Brooks was”, in the whirlwind following his unexpected death.
I’ve never wished ill on the guy…but let’s be real…
…He did come from that branch of “progressive” media, which has a clear integrity deficit…
Majority Report is more like a gaggle of goofballs in high school, standing in the hall and making things up to mock others, all to make each other laugh…I have a history of salting the Majority Report in with watching other “progressive” media, easily spanning a year…So, I have had a heavy taste of it…and I consider the Majority Report to be one of the bigger embarrassments in “progressive” media.
I’ve rarely featured any clips from the Majority Report here…and even less so, the Michael Brooks Show…
They each, very rarely show up in my suggestions…and if I’m interested in the topic, I might check out the video…or share it, such as I did a Michael Brooks clip last month…[I didn’t find a whole lot else on the topic, thought the topic was important…so, I cringed a bit and tossed it in with a bunch of other stuff that day].
The Majority Report [Sam Seeder and company]…from what I have seen of them…are a group of idiots, who will set right there and dictate to you, or anyone else, “what you are thinking”, “what you were intending”, “what you want”…and attack you over how they have represented you to be…
…Bullshit, which is an absolute “no go”, in the book of anyone who has a history of being targeted by this type of abusive, dishonest, ruthless behavior…who themselves, have some level of integrity.
…People like me, pick up on it…and recognize it as behavior which belongs in the sewer.
Michael has had the triple whammy…of not only coming from this background…but also being a dick towards atheists…and opening his ignorant mouth to talk shit about MAPs…
That last one…sure…let’s be fair…because…Cenk…Jimmy…Kyle…Mike…etc, etc…Who has not been an a-hole, spreading propaganda and talking shit about “pedophiles” at least once, in the “progressive” media?…
I don’t give anyone the permanent stink eye, based solely on the rare, offhanded ignorance they display concerning “pedophiles”…
…but when you’re already coming from the really crap branch of “progressive” media…and I’ve encountered this much bigotry…It’s just to much, to allow to keep assaulting my mind and sense of decency…
I don’t know what other people were seeing…Or maybe it’s just that they are blind and numb, to how demeaning other groups of people harms them [when the group is an established, demonized scapegoat]…
…but I am hard pressed to remember a time seeing Michael Brooks setting in front of his microphone and talking…where he did not radiate “I am an arrogant prick!”…
…Yes…the kind who can pass his bullying off behind a veneer of jokes [mockery…one of the more annoying, asshole types, when you combine it with the other elements]…and people who are blind to what he is doing, or just agree with his end goal and don’t care how anyone goes about getting there, lap it all up…
This is probably the major problem with “progressive” media…and “progressives”…”If you’re on “my team” pushing my ideas…you can do whatever the fuck you want, and I’ll stand behind you”…
…There is no fucking integrity.
I’ve had this opinion about Michael Brooks, the Majority Report, etc…for the last several years…I think we would be far better off without that sort of behavior…personality…presentation…
I think it’s always reflected badly, on progressives.
If you’re even paying attention…most of what you are going to hear, are going to be teary eyed, glowing accounts of Michael’s “angelic character”…and how “the world has lost a giant of a gold hearted champion”…all else will be ignored.
…which just underscores an underlying contempt, present in “progressive” media…
They don’t need to die…but I don’t believe it is a loss for any flavor of media, when these sorts leave the scene…In fact, I consider it to be a massive benefit.
Call me a heartless asshole for that…
…but Michael Brooks never gave me anything to even remotely like him for…quite the contrary.
…and it sucks watching people act like he was a “pure soul”, when the person you saw on the screen was quite a bit different.
When the pricks in your media are “the pure as snow, good guys”…there is something fucked up about your media.
As a decent human being, with a conscience…I found Michael Brooks to be one of the single most off putting personalities out there, in the “progressive” media circuit.
Tell me how wrong I am…
