Good Monday morning, all!
Well, the Endless Freepathon finally ended on Friday, and there’s only 9 days between the third quarter edition and the fourth quarter edition. At this point, they might as well just leave the damned thing up year-round.
Also, I’m thinking that the final push every quarter that puts them over the top (see what I did there?) is just surrendering and calling it a victory : “Oh well – donations have dried up completely for the last couple of weeks, so let’s color the chart to the end and say we won. At least we’ll be spared the embarrassment of Freepers publicly noting that the beg-a-thon has become a permanent fixture of the site.”
Otherwise, it’s business as usual :
Ellison compares illegal immigrants to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is comparing giving sanctuary to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. to giving shelter to Jews fleeing the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
“And if you ask yourself ‘What would I do if I was a gentile in 1941, if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary?'” Ellison said Monday in comments on President Trump’s move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“I’m one of the people who believes we should give our neighbors sanctuary,” he told supporters in Minneapolis, as reported by the NTK Network.
Trump said earlier this month he was ending the Obama-era program, which spares from deportation those who were brought to the U.S. as children. The president, however, has called for a legislative solution and indicated a willingness to work with Democrats on the proposed Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.
“So this is not someone else’s fight; this is all our fight but some people are in the bull’s eye and others of us are not exactly the target. Therefore, it is our responsibility to stand up and fight and do the right thing,” Ellison said.
Thanks so much for your support to this point… I personally apprecaite it…

Washington (CNN)Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told reporters Tuesday it was a “staffing issue” that led to a pornographic video being “liked” by his Twitter account — which has since been removed.
“It was a staffing issue and it was inadvertent, it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action,” Cruz said, according to The Washington Post. He added: “We’re dealing with it internally but it was a mistake, it was not malicious conduct.”
An aide to Cruz confirmed the comments to CNN, adding that there would be an internal effort to figure out who was responsible.
Cruz declined to comment when asked by CNN about the incident.
“It was a staffing issue and it was inadvertent,
it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action,”
….it was not a deliberate action,” ….
It was both a mistake and a deliberate action. It couldn’t
have happened had someone not made the coding.

To: Tenacious 1I won’t click on CNN. I am ignorant on how Twitter works. Someone watched a video and then liked it from Ted Cruz Twitter account? Is that what happened?
No. Someone was looking at a porn site and inadvertently (or on purpose) clicked the “Like” button for Twitter. Since it was from a computer where Cruz’s Twitter account was already signed in, it automatically posted the “like” on his Twitter feed.
Lotta gymnastics in the thread. Sometimes the simplest explanation is the correct one.
AMC Developing Series Based On Black Lives Matter Book ‘They Can’t Kill Us All’

AMC has put in development a drama based on Wesley Lowery’s bestselling nonfiction book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice. It comes from Brad Weston’s Makeready and writer LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington’s Spies).
Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book was acquired by Makeready last fall. It examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods with failing schools, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs has led to the high-profile cases of police brutality in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore and elsewhere and the birth of Black Lives Matter movement seeking justice for the deaths of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray.
Written by Morgan, who is under an overall deal at AMC, the potential series also will reflect current events and race relations through the stories and voices of fictional characters. Morgan will executive produce with Makeready founder and CEO Weston and creative heads Pam Abdy and Scott Nemes.****************More leftist propaganda from Hollywood.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc, Target Corp and PepsiCo Inc on Wednesday joined an expanded group of nearly 800 companies calling in a letter for U.S. legislation to protect immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents from deportation, according to organizer FWD.us.
A group of businesses less than half the size and weighted toward technology companies sent a similar letter in August, before President Donald Trump said he would end the program.
Both letters were spearheaded by FWD.us, a pro-immigration group co-founded by Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg.
