Mostly Accurate Transcript
House democrats are having a tough time overcoming their split over passing a resolution condemning anti-semitism. The Dem’s reportedly clashed during a closed-door meeting Wednesday over how best to respond to Representative Ilhan Omar’s repeated use of alleged anti-Semitic platitudes. One member of Omar’s clan of far-leftists clashed with the Democratic leadership over an agreement to vote on a resolution aimed at what they called a nefarious “dual loyalty” to the U.S. and Israel. Roll Call is reporting Democrats are looking to broaden the language of the resolution to include other types of bigotry. Trump has called for Omar to resign. (Byte Trump) Although the resolution seems to have Omar squarely in its crosshairs, so far Democrats have reportedly not included Omar’s name in any draft proposals. Voldemort!
North Korea’s Kim is getting his erections going again. Following the failed Trump/Kim summit in Vietnam, North Korea appears to be rebuilding a rocket launching site. The DC based think tank, CSIS, has obtained images that have spotted the activity in the North West corner of the DRPK. So far, the White House has declined to comment on the activity.
Rapper R Kelly is denying the allegations of sexual abuse against him. Kelly said this in an interview on CBS This Morning. (Byte-Kelly) The charges stem from allegations involving 4 women, three of whom were underage when the alleged events took place.
The party looks like it’s over for pay tv. According to a study by the Leichtman Research Group, cord-cutters are leaving the pay TV world by nearly twice as much in 2018 as the previous year. Nearly 2.9 million folks canceled their pay TV subscriptions. Direct TV and Dish were at the head of the pack loosing the bulk of subscribers. That’s not even considering the numbers that cut off their Cox…. cable.
First they came for your straws and I said nothing, then they came for your sunscreen and I stayed silent. Now they want your balloons, and. It’s too late. Treehugger wants to ban your balloons bucko. The balloon ban, promulgated on an op-ed on the Treehuger web site, states that balloons are the leading cause of death for seabirds, according to the University of Tasmania. What devils! Won’t someone think of the the crying children!
Here’s the funniest story of the day. Facebook founder and overlord Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly outlined plans to move Facebook to "privacy-focused" platform. In a three thousand word note on Wednesday, the big Zuck said, quote, “"I believe the future of communication will increasingly shift to private, encrypted services where people can be confident what they say to each other stays secure and their messages and content won't stick around forever. This is the future I hope we will help bring about.” How’s he gonna’ sell that? I mean, literally, their entire business plan revolves around selling the information you give to them. How is he going to sell that? Maybe he’ll create another company that lets Facebook users keep their data private, for a small fee.
