Devin Nunes cancelled his fundraising dinner because he's afraid people will come and moo at him. 😆

Devin Nunes cancelled his fundraising dinner because he's afraid people will come and moo at him.

Nunes speaking engagement canceled over credible threats of mooing, cowbells (seriously)

If a conservative ever, ever, ever calls you a snowflake, show them this. (No, seriously, print it out, stick it in your wallet, give it to them, and just walk the fuck away.)

Huffington Post:

An annual Republican fundraising dinner in Fresno, California, featuring Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has been canceled following protesters’ plans to crash the event wearing cow costumes and ringing cowbells.

The protest plot was launched after Nunes sued Twitter and the parody Twitter account @DevinCow for $250 million for online harassment. Nunes’ planned blow against ridicule backfired as the number of “Devin Nunes’ Cow” followers zoomed to 623,000, far surpassing the number of Nunes’ own Twitter followers.

Andy Lassner, the executive producer of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” set off the protest plans Wednesday with a tongue-in-cheek “I’m not saying” that people should show up to the Fresno Lincoln Reagan Dinner — planned for April 11 — to “moo.” Lassner’s followers quickly suggested showing up in cow costumes, with cowbells and mooing noise-makers.

Ireland's Prime Minister visited the US on St. Paddy's Day two years ago and had this to say...

Timely words from two years ago, even more relevant today.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Expertly Laid a Trap to Get Donald Trump's Tax Returns

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Expertly Laid a Trap to Get Donald Trump’s Tax Returns

Her line of questioning during Michael Cohen’s hearing was praised for its clarity and deftness.

While Republicans on Wednesday repeatedly hammered Michael Cohen over his efforts to secure a lucrative media deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her time to focus on one of the most consequential topics concerning investigations into President Donald Trump: his ever-elusive tax returns.

It was one of the more anticipated appearances by a lawmaker on the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Her clear and purposeful line of questioning, which appeared to lay the groundwork for the committee to subpoena the president’s tax returns while capturing the names of those in Trump’s inner circle who may know details of his financials, was widely praised.

Michael Cohen Warns Republicans: "I did the same thing you're doing now and look what happened."

Michael Cohen Warns Republicans: “I did the same thing you’re doing now.”

Cohen then offers a remarkable warning to the Republicans on the committee as to what happens to those who stand by Trump.

“I did the same thing that you’re doing now for ten years. I protected Mr. Trump for ten years,” Cohen says.

“Look what’s happened to me.”

Cohen adds: “The more people that suffer Donald Trump, as I did blindly, are going to suffer the same consequences that I did.”

10-Year-Old Boy Scout Wins Praise After Taking a Knee During Pledge of Allegiance

"Inspired and Inspiring": 10-Year-Old Boy Scout Wins Praise After Taking a Knee During Pledge of Allegiance

"This is why Colin Kaepernick's work is so powerful. A 10-year-old white Boy Scout from North Carolina taking a stand against discrimination."

A 10-year-old Boy Scout won the praise of a local mayor as well as online observers Friday when the story of his decision to peacefully protest during the Pledge of Allegiance went viral.

Liam Holmes and his Cub Scout Pack had been invited to recite the pledge at a city council meeting at City Hall in Durham, North Carolina on Monday. After a discussion with his father about professional athletes who have taken a knee in recent years to protest police brutality and the police shootings of unarmed black Americans, Holmes decided to stage his own demonstration.

"What I did was took a knee against racial discrimination, which is basically [when] people are mean to other people of different colors," Holmes told CBS 17, an affiliate station in Durham.


Holmes' father expressed surprise and pride in an interview with the station, while Mayor Steve Schewel let the room know right away that the boy's protest was welcomed at City Hall.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez discusses campaign finance laws in a House committee hearing on Feb. 6, 201

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “lightning round” on money in politics goes viral

AOC points out it’s “super legal” for her to be a “pretty bad guy.”

US campaign finance laws are, well, less than ideal — or, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put it in a House committee hearing this week, they make it “super legal” for lawmakers to be a “pretty bad guy.”

A viral video of Ocasio-Cortez during a hearing held by the House Oversight and Reform Committee on strengthening ethics rules for the executive branch swept across the internet this week. The video, put together by NowThis News, shows the high-profile New York Congress member playing a “lightning round” game with witnesses. The purpose: to highlight how it’s legal for congressional candidates to do a lot of shady stuff. And they’re held to a higher standard than the president.

“I’m going to be the bad guy, which, I’m sure, half the room would agree with anyway, and I want to get away with as much bad things as possible, ideally to enrich myself and advance my interests, even if that means putting my interests ahead of the American people,” Ocasio-Cortez said during the Wednesday hearing. “I have enlisted all of as my co-conspirators, so you’re going to help me legally get away with all of this.”

Could Leonardo Da Vinci's Salvator Mundi hold the key to unlocking the Trump-Russia investigation?

SALVATOR MUNDI

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman appears to have ‘lost’ the world’s most expensive painting. The Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, Salvator Mundi, may hold the key to the Trump-Russia investigation. And, the artwork itself could be evidence of collusion.

Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘last’ masterpiece was to be unveiled on September 18 at the spellbinding new Louvre in Abu Dhabi, but the exhibit was put on a temporary hold, amid rumours the painting was lost.

The art world has become increasingly alarmed. After all, Salvator Mundi is the most expensive artwork ever sold. “Nobody outside the immediate Arab hierarchy knows where it is,” Da Vinci scholar Martin Kemp told The Times.

Questions are being raised. First, why did the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, an art novice, buy the masterpiece? Secondly, why did he overpay for it by $300 million? Even for the stupendously wealthy Prince Mohammed bin Salman, that’s not just a simple rounding error. How do you misplace a $450 million painting anyway?

We can also reveal Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating both the buyer and the seller of the Da Vinci masterpiece as part of the Trump-Russia investigation.

All the intrigue suits Salvator Mundi’s already storied past well, but as I write this, no-one has seen the rare masterpiece in over a year, and its exact whereabouts have been unknown for over 100 days.

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince MBS appears to have ‘lost’ the world’s most expensive painting. The Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, Salvator Mundi, may hold the key to the #TrumpRussia investigation. And, the artwork itself could be evidence of collusion.


The Salvator Mundi was previously owned by Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, who bought it in 2013 for $127 million instead of its valued $80 million. Rybolovlev is under investigation by Mueller for purchasing 45*’s Palm Beach mansion for $54 million more than it was worth.

In August 2016, Erik Prince arranged and attended a meeting at Trump Tower with Israeli Joel Zamel & George Nader. Nader told Don Jr. that the Saudi and Emirati princes wanted to help Trump become president, using Zamel’s company Psy-Group to manipulate social media.

The painting was sold at auction in November 2017 for over $300 million more than expected; MBS paid a total of $450 million for it. Representatives of MBS and the UAE were bidding against each other, driving the price up. Art sales are a well known method of money laundering.

Was the over payment for the painting the crown princes’ way to pay for the social media campaign waged on Trump’s behalf? Now, the location of the Salvator Mundi is unknown, leading to suspicion. How does one misplace the world’s most expensive painting?
