So I live in a lefty college town. There’s Bernie sidewalk art and a Bernie bus and Bernie posters everywhere. Basically every car I see has a “Bernie 2020” bumper sticker on it (or a “Bernie 2016” sticker on it lol).
And I’m driving and I see a “Mike Bloomberg 2020” bumper sticker in front of me. I’m like uhhh who is this fucker?? Then I notice the license plate cover that indicates the driver comes from a different town 30 minutes away. And this town is KNOWN for being full of white millionaires. Like 95% rich white people.
Says so much about the campaigns. I had to laugh.
President Trump criticized remarks by Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg as “inappropriate” and said the Supreme Court justices should recuse themselves from cases involving the president.
“I just don’t know how they cannot recuse themselves for anything Trump or Trump related,” Trump said Tuesday in a wide-ranging news conference in New Delhi.
“What Justice Sotomayor said yesterday was highly inappropriate,” Trump added. “She’s trying to shame people with perhaps a different view into voting her way.”
The remarks are an apparent reference to a recent Sotomayor dissent in which she wrote that the administration had made a habit of turning to the Supreme Court after losses in lower courts.
“Claiming one emergency after another, the government has recently sought stays in an unprecedented number of cases, demanding immediate attention and consuming limited court resources in each,” Sotomayor wrote. “And with each successive application, of course, its cries of urgency ring increasingly hollow.” She added that the Supreme Court was “partly to blame” because it “has been all too quick to grant the government’s” requests.
Ginsburg had previously criticized Trump before he was elected president.
Earlier Trump wrote on Twitter: “Sotomayor accuses GOP appointed Justices of being biased in favor of Trump. … This is a terrible thing to say. Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a 'faker’. Both should recuse themselves.”
A 26-year-old Moncton man has been charged in connection to a fire at the House of Nazareth, a building that long housed a homeless shelter in the city.
Police and fire crews responded to a report of a fire on Clark Street just before 2 p.m. Feb. 18.
The fire re-ignited the next morning and the RCMP and a fire investigator were on scene Thursday.
It was later determined the fire had been deliberately set.
Codiac RCMP arrested a man Saturday morning after responding to an unreleated call at the Moncton City Hospital. Police identified him as a suspect in connection to the shelter fire.
Shawn Malley, 26, has been charged with arson with disregard for human life.
Police say he is still in custody and is scheduled to appear in Moncton provincial court Feb 26.
The investigation is ongoing.

A thief wearing a burqa and armed with a spray bottle made off with nearly $1 million worth of necklaces and watches from a Hudson Yards jeweler on Sunday, police sources said.
The bling bandit, a man dressed in a burqa covering most of his face, walked into the luxury Piaget jewelry store at around 3:55 p.m. and asked to look at a necklace, sources and police officials said.
As the clerk pulled out the necklace, priced at about $21,000, he noticed the man was holding onto one of the store’s watches, according to sources.
When the employee questioned the soon-to-be thief, he whipped out the spray bottle and squirted it in the clerk’s direction before running out of the store, with the necklace and two watches — one priced at $64,000, and the other $715,000 — in tow, police sources said.
Piaget, where some watches are so expensive the price is not even displayed online, valued the loss at around $800,600, sources added.
Sometime Sunday evening, management with Hudson Yard Shops sent out an email to tenants warning them to stay alert.
“Maybe they’ll want to hit another time,” said Peter Young, a senior sales consultant for Watches of Switzerland, of the thief.
“I heard from a sales associate it was a man dressed as a woman, dressed in a burqa,” he added, and that he may have altered his voice to sound “Vaderdesque” — a reference to “Star Wars” antagonist Darth Vader.
Workers from the other jewelry stores crowding the ground floor of Hudson Yards were shocked to hear of the heist.
“It’s awful,” a worker at Cartier located across the hall said.
An administrator at nearby Van Cleef & Arpels who declined to give their name, reasoned it was part of the business.
“I heard about it. It’s crazy, but that’s the jewelry world. Hopefully they’ll catch him,” the admin told the Post.
Other luxury jewelry stores crowd the ground floor of Hudson Yards. On the same hallway as Piaget is Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, and Tiffany’s, while Rolex is around the corner.
The suspect could not be identified because the head covering — typically worn by women in some Muslim cultures — concealed most of the man’s face, police sources said.
remember way back when Zizek crawled out of a trash can and owned Peterson so hard that Peterson got addicted to benzos and went into a coma?
Oil companies produced 3.17 million barrels per day (BPD) on average in Brazil in January, a volume 20.4% larger than seen in the same month a year earlier and an output record for the country, oil regulator ANP said on Wednesday.
Natural gas production increased 22% over January 2019 to 138.7 million cubic meters per day on average last month, also a record. The deep water, pre-salt field known as Lula accounted for a third of all oil production in Brazil, reaching 1.05 million BPD of crude on average in January, ANP said.
i’m so mad atlas shrugging is such a GREAT concept for a metaphor. someone with literal power of life or death over the entire planet just deciding “eh not my problem what happens to them as long as i’m not burdened” but then it comes crashing down on him too because duh of course it would! you live here too! and it’s exactly what’s going on in the world right now but instead of examining the ACTUAL ramifications of those in power shirking responsibility in favor of their own self-interest ayn rand wrote a bunch of bullshit! i am so cheesed right now
