[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] Minneapolis career criminal George Howard, 48, who was previously jugged Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw! then released on bail through Minnesota's Freedom Fund, a group backed by Vice President Kámala Harris Former Oakland mayor Willie Brown's former mistress, then a senatrix from California, and then a former 2020 Dem presidential hopeful. She dropped out because she was polling in negative numbers because of racism or misogyny or something like that. Her father is a Marxist professor emeritus at Stanford and her mother is an Indian of the Hindoo tribe. She is reputedly the proud descendant of a long line of women. Joe Biden picked her for her skin tone, feeling she could also bring in the Native American, women's, and bimbo votes. She's an outstanding exemplar of the Peter Principle, proudly displaying her level of competence in her handling of the Biden Border Surge , was arrested August 29 on murder charges.
Minnesota's Freedom Fund bailed out Howard on August 6 who was in jug on on a $11,500 bond in connection with domestic assault.
According to the Minneapolis Police Department, George Howard shot a driver during an alleged road rage incident on an Interstate 94 entrance ramp. The victim, identified as Luis Damian Martinez Ortiz, 38, was shot in the chest after surveillance video captured a physical confrontation with the suspect. Ortiz was pronounced dead at the hospital.
On August 29, Howard was charged with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the fatal Interstate shooting.
The Minnesota Freedom Fund sent a series of tweets on Friday expressing fault for the role they played in the fatal shooting; however, the group has since deleted their tweets but screenshots remain through archives.
"We are aware of reports of the tragic and fatal shooting in Minneapolis earlier this week allegedly involving George Howard," they wrote, "an individual the Minnesota Freedom Fund had previously provided with bail support. MFF believes that every individual who has been arrested by the law enforcement is innocent until proven guilty, and if a judge deems them eligible for bail, they should not have to wait in jail simply because they don’t have the same income or access to resources as others."
The group said they were reviewing their policies and procedures.
"Under new leadership, MFF has implemented changes to its policies and procedures, and we will continue to assess them to ensure that we are being responsive to the safety and needs of our community," MFF added.
Vice President Kamala Harris promoted the fund during the height of the George Floyd riots in June of 2020 and encouraged supporters to donate to the groups efforts, although donors don't get to decide where their donations go.
"If you're able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota," VP Harris wrote, linking to the group's donation site on ActBlue, a Democratic PAC.
[Fox News] The White House is withdrawing the nomination of David Chipman to run the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco (ATF) and Firearms, Fox News has confirmed.
Chipman, who had a history of caustic comments about gun owners and worked for gun control groups for years after his career as an ATF agent, was staunchly opposed by Republicans. But he struggled to gain the support of several Democrats, who never explicitly opposed Chipman's nomination but also never publicly supported him either.
The Washington Post first reported the story.
"Mr. Chipman’s long record as a partisan, anti-Second Amendment activist raised plenty of concerns about how he’d administer federal firearms laws. But that wasn’t the only cause for concern," Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said. "The record he concealed from Congress, some of which remains hidden to this day, about how he treated his fellow employees while at the ATF confirms his lack of fitness to lead the agency."
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has often supported Biden's executive nominees, celebrated Chipman's downfall as well.

I have relatives who have recently admitted their disdain for Donald Trump. My analysis reveals there's at least a 5 percent chance they are closet dems. I've started to smile, say little, and keep my distance.

Fake meat coming to a theater near you .. stuff is made from soy and a soy burger can contain around 18,000 times as much Estrogen than actual meat. Or some studies report...other articles refuting this...wonder why Bill Gates is buying up all the farm land?
Indeed, Skid. I have all the pork I could want. But I do have to process it myself. And that is nasty this time of year. Thankfully even a small freezer filled in the winter will last all year. Always looking for good ground pork recipes - lets me use more of those larger feral swine.
[Breitbart] Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday asserted that more than just "women" can menstruate, defending her use of the term "menstruating people."
"Not just women! Trans men & non-binary people can also menstruate," Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed, defending her use of the term.
"Some women also *don’t* menstruate for many reasons, including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy," she continued.
"GOP mad at this are protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders," the New York lawmaker added, continuing to tell people to "grow up" because "trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people have always existed and will always exist":
Hey Bob, what do ya wanna do today?
I know! Let's menstruate.
Uh, isn't that a bit ghey, two guys menstruating together? Not that there is anything wrong with that.
Aw, forget it. Let's just go fishing.
[EN.ALGHADEERTV.NET] The US government could run out of money as early as next month to service its debt, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Wednesday, reiterating her warning that emergency measures put in place to raise cash could be exhausted soon.
"Given this uncertainty, the Treasury Department is not able to provide a specific estimate of how long the extraordinary measures will last," Yellen said in a copy of her letter to Pelosi, released by the department. "However, the way to a man's heart remains through his stomach... based on our best and most recent information, the most likely outcome is that cash and extraordinary measures will be exhausted during the month of October."
Yellen announced in August that the Treasury Department was suspending fully or partly investments in the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund, the Postal Service Retiree Health Benefits Fund, and a section of the Federal Employees Retirement to free up funds to service the national debt.
These were flexible investments that could be made in due course, and other US treasury secretaries have also suspended them as well in times of emergency, she said.
"Our estimates of the period of time that extraordinary measures will last have been refined in recent weeks, although they continue to be subject to considerable uncertainty due to the normal challenges of forecasting the payments and receipts of the US government, including the uncertainty in the level of corporate and individual taxes due September 15, heightened by the additional uncertainty due to the pandemic and related economic relief, and other factors," Yellen said. "Once all available measures and cash on hand are fully exhausted, the United States of America would be unable to meet its obligations for the first time in our history".
How about lets start with the suspension of all Congressional, Executive office & staff pay, travel, and protective services. Until we have a balanced budget and a federal reduction in nonessential staff (RIF)?
Plus stop overseas spending and stop being the worlds Policeman all until we get our own house and borders in order.
Awww — he’s demonstrating that he’s a jellyfish. How adorable!
.@tedwheeler backtracks on the emergency resolution to ban Portland's government & employees from doing business with or traveling to Texas. The proposal was mocked by many given the city's problems w/riots & skyrocketing homicides under his leadership. https://t.co/orZz48M671
Didn't I read somewhere that Portland Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who oversees Portland Fire & Rescue and etc... has been out for 30+days because she is actually in Drug Rehab and not on extended vacation?
It was pointed out to him that someone he knows wasn't going to be able to go on that big job interview in Austin, and well...
Plus, he wants some of those trendy Afghan refugees that are staying in Fort Bliss.

#3 That's the prevailing assumption: rehab for drugs, booze n gambling. She was due back in office on the 7th but she's still a no show. One look at her and it's all very easy to believe.
