Tucker Carlson "Decries"
Goofy Replacement Theory

This is what lyin' Lachlan Murdoch calls decrying:TV Dinner Tucker & his friends seem to be laboring under the impression there's an upper limit on the number of American voters. And that no one ever dies. If any of them can provide an example of a "legacy American" being removed from the voter rolls because a newly naturalized immigrant is "replacing" him or her, I will eat my hat.
Nicholas Confessore / New York Times:
Senator Chuck Schumer urges Rupert Murdoch to stop amplifying “replacement theory” on Fox News; Lachlan Murdoch said Tucker Carlson “decried” the theory in 2021  —  Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the majority leader, urged Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch …

Heart Pumping Piss

Eat shit, richies.
A wind- and terrain-driven fire chewed through brush in Aliso Wood Canyon between Laguna Niguel and Laguna Beach today, with the flames advancing toward high-dollar hillside estates overlooking the ocean, burning at least five [Now 20+. — Ed.] multimillion-dollar homes.

The fire was reported at 2:44 p.m., Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Sean Doran said.

The fire was estimated to be about three acres as of 3:30 p.m. but spread to at least 30 acres by 5 p.m. By 7:30 p.m., officials estimated the fire to be around 200 acres, with more than 20 homes destroyed and 0% containment. 

"Unfortunately I think this is what we're going to be experiencing over the next several weeks and years," said Chief Brian Fennessy of the Orange County Fire Authority during a press conference Wednesday night. "The vegetation is so dry it is not taking much for the fire to take off running and burn very quickly."

The flames spread quickly as they tore through thick brush on the hillside, aided by ocean winds that sparked spot fires ahead of the main blaze.

The wind has been one factor in the spread, and the size of the homes has also made containing the blaze difficult, officials said.
The size of the houses. Ha ha ha.

And one more amusing item from the KCBS/KCAL link.

Trump: Too Stupid For Words

Trump Kept Asking if China Was Shooting Us With a ‘Hurricane Gun’  —  The then-leader of the free world also inquired whether the U.S. could bomb China in retaliation for the alleged hurricane attack  — …
Rolling Stone: “Near the beginning of Donald Trump’s time in office, the then-president had a pressing question for his national-security aides and administration officials: Does China have the secret technology — a weapon, even — to create large, man-made hurricanes and then launch them at the United States? And if so, would this constitute an act of war by a foreign power, and could the U.S. retaliate militarily? Then-President Trump repeatedly asked about this.”

Said a former Trump official: “It was almost too stupid for words. I did not get the sense he was joking at all.”

GOP senators want new TV rating for shows with LGBTQ characters

The five senators from North Dakota, Kansas, Utah, Indiana and Montana sent a letter Wednesday to the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board asking for the new rating.

“In recent years, concerning topics of a sexual nature have become aggressively politicized and promoted in children’s programming, including irreversible and harmful experimental treatments for mental disorders like gender dysphoria,” the letter reads.

The two-page letter signed by Sens. Roger Marshall, Mike Lee, Mike Braun, Kevin Cramer and Steve Daines “strongly urged” the TV group’s chairman, Charles Rivkin, to update its guidelines to ensure parents are aware of the “disturbing” content.

This reporter sho' nuff didn't have a Republican Crazies vs. Disney faceoff on his bingo card, but the Fetishizing Five very specifically took a cue from Florida & went after Disney in their letter.
Recently, a video emerged showing a prominent executive at children’s entertainment giant Disney saying she supports having "many, many, many LGBTQIA+ characters in our stories." To the detriment of children, gender dysphoria has become sensationalized in the popular media and television with radical activists and entertainment companies. This radical and sexual sensation not only harms children, [sic] but also destabilizes and damages parental rights. This same company has concerningly denounced and vowed to work to repeal a recently passed Florida parental rights law that bans classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity in kindergarten through third grade. Sexual orientation and gender identity instruction often entails [sic] a discussion concerning an individual’s pattern of emotional, romantic, and sexual attraction. Parents all over the country have rightfully expressed outrage over its inclusion in the classroom.
Disney, of course, has to move its product to billions of consuming chumps worldwide, most of whom are not frightened hicks hiding in the barn in case a queer shows up on the telly w/o advance warning. These five showboaters only have to move their horsecrap to enough of the hick voters in ungovernable tribal regions that comprise 4.43% of the U.S. population.
By the way, not seeing too much "gender dysphoria" in Disney programming. Wait. Perhaps season four, episode 26 of Disney Channel's Bunk'd (rated TV-Y7). Something about [shudder] girls in the boys' bathroom. Diabolical!

TV-GWhen Ava, Destiny and Gwen discover that the Grizzly cabin has a much larger bathroom than theirs, they hatch a diabolical plan to convince the boys to switch cabins.

Monday Lake Mead Morbidity Report

The lead is buried in the seventh paragraph.
A barrel containing human remains was discovered in Nevada’s Lake Mead over the weekend as a historic drought grips the West.

Las Vegas Metro Police fear they will find more bodies, officials told a local news station.

The receding waters at Lake Mead, the country’s largest manmade reservoir, have dropped to historic lows. The levels are so shallow that a barrel containing skeletal remains was found Sunday immersed in mud, reports KLAS-TV in Las Vegas.

Based on personal items found in the barrel, police think it has been at the bottom of the lake since the 1980s.

Lt. Ray Spencer with the Las Vegas Metro Police told the news station the person was likely killed four decades ago and was found around 3 p.m. Sunday by boaters. He did not give further details about the person’s identity or how the remains ended up in a barrel at the bottom of Lake Mead.

“It’s going to take an extensive amount of work,” Spencer said of trying to identify the person. “I would say there is a very good chance as the water level drops that we are going to find additional human remains.”

The lake — a lifeline for 25 million people and millions of acres of farmland in California, Arizona, Nevada and Mexico — has been tipping toward crisis amid record temperatures and lower snowpack melt. The lake’s growing “bathtub ring,” formed by mineral deposits, marks the rocky desert slopes more than 150 feet above the retreating shoreline.

“I think anybody can understand there are probably more bodies that have been dumped in Lake Mead, it’s just a matter of, are we able to recover those?” Spencer said.

A photo of the skeleton in a partially exposed barrel was shared with the news station. An official with the Clark County Coroner’s Office said the department could not comment on the investigation. Police said they would reach out to outside experts, including at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to help identify the remains.

Last month, water levels at Lake Mead dropped so low that an original water valve not seen since 1971 was exposed. The Southern Nevada Water Authority told CNN that the valve could no longer draw water because of the low water levels.

“The Colorado River Basin is experiencing the worst drought in recorded history,” the water agency said in a statement posted to its website. “Since 2000, snowfall and runoff into the basin have been well below normal. These conditions have resulted in significant water level declines at major system reservoirs, including Lake Mead and Lake Powell.”

The worsening megadrought is causing water districts to restrict usage. In California, roughly 6 million people will need to curb their water use by 35%. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California says this will equal about 80 gallons per day per person.

“The ballpark figure we’re looking at is getting to the consumption of about 80 gallons per person per day,” said Adel Hagekhalil, the district’s general manager. “We’re trying to preserve everything we can.”
