MTG got laughed at in a hearing. Witness throws it right back at her.

Greene went on to say that since members at the hearing brought up the subject of white supremacy, she wanted to point out that the real white supremacists are people who support abortion, since "20 million Black babies" have been aborted in America "since Roe vs Wade."

"Is this funny to you?" Greene asked. "Is babies being murdered in the womb funny to you? Because you're smirking and laughing at me right now."

"What's not funny are the Black people and Hispanic people and Jewish people and Muslim people who have been murdered in synagogues, in church, in supermarkets, in mosques, by white supremacists," witness Amy Spitalnick replied.

Video at the link. MTG starts babbling at the 2:00 mark. The witness’s response is at 3:00. Then MTG starts babbling again.

Durham's "confirmation bias". My 2 sense

From my reading of analysis on the Durham report I’ve come to this summary - Durham used his own confirmation bias to write a report about the FBI’s confirmation bias.

This report could have been written 4 years ago. It was basically already pre-written.

Mystery 'poop' rains down on cars in drive-thru, family says

Mystery ‘poop’ rains down on cars in drive-thru, family says


BURNSVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) - After a stinky mess, believed by a Minnesota family to be feces, rained down on multiple cars in a drive-thru, the origins of the substance are still unknown.

“I was looking around, like ‘Who threw it at us?’ But it was very high. It came straight down. It hit on my roof, on my hood. It was all the way down my side,” she said. “Also, my child was with me, so I’m glad the windows weren’t open.”

Browne’s young son described the experience.
“Something landed on my mom’s car,” he said. “It stinked. It was poop.”

Despite everything, Browne completed her transaction and got her daily coffee.

Florida professor sets underwater living record - 74 days. Plans to stay for 100 days

KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A university professor broke a record for the longest time living underwater without depressurization this weekend at a Florida Keys lodge for scuba divers.

Joseph Dituri’s 74th day residing in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, situated at the bottom of a 30-foot-deep lagoon in Key Largo, wasn’t much different than his previous days there since he submerged March 1.

Dituri, who also goes by the moniker “Dr. Deep Sea,” ate a protein-heavy meal of eggs and salmon prepared using a microwave, exercised with resistance bands, did his daily pushups and took an hour-long nap. Unlike a submarine, the lodge does not use technology to adjust for the increased underwater pressure.

The previous record of 73 days, two hours and 34 minutes was set by two Tennessee professors -- Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain -- at the same location in 2014.

Happy Horton day! 🐘

On the fifteenth of May, in the jungle of Nool,
In the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool,
He was splashing…enjoying the jungle’s great joys…
When Horton the elephant heard a small noise.

Final Jeopardy- President Sam. Yikes


Sam fled to the French embassy, where he received asylum. The rebels' mulatto leaders broke into the embassy and found Sam. They dragged him out and beat him senseless, and then threw his limp body over the embassy's iron fence to the waiting populace, who then ripped his body to pieces and paraded the parts through the capital's neighborhoods.
