CBS Anchor Makes FB Post Defending Kavanaugh. Here’s What He Was Forced to do Right After.

Published

on

A local CBS anchor from Palm Springs, California has fallen victim to the egregious political correctness that is now sweeping across our country and infecting every single part of our culture after posting a defense of Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Facebook.

Kris Long has been handed a pink slip by KESQ-TV for the post, demonstrating that the only tolerance coming out of the left is tolerance for folks who are part of their group think mentality.

In a since-deleted post, Long announced that, according to the new standards, he “couldn’t get elected dog catcher!”

“Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is now having to answer for his actions as a 17 year old!” wrote Long (full text below). “I have absolutely no problem with the Metoo movement. In fact, I would offer that it is long overdue. Far too many women have been subjected to mistreatment for far too long by men with the power to control their lives and paychecks. I have absolutely no sympathy for the increasingly long list of well-known names who have fallen from grace because they thought with their little head and not their big one.”

He continued: “However, you are beyond dreaming if you think 17 year old boys are not going to misbehave from time to time as they begin to attempt relationships with the opposite sex. That is just the way we animals are made! Now, that certainly does not in any way mean that a 17 year old should be allowed to force himself on a young girl. That illegal act is reprehensible at 17, 37, or 77. But to allow someone to accuse a fellow teenager of some lesser miscreant behavior from some four decades ago is, I feel, a real stretch.”

He added later: “If he did actually commit rape as a 17 year old, which has not been claimed, then he should be prosecuted. However, if the act was that serious, and few things are more serious than rape, why has it taken all these many years for his accuser to come forward! This just stinks of political maneuvering. I fear the day may be coming when some otherwise deserving office seeker is deemed unacceptable due to accidentally bumping the leg of a kindergartner of the opposite sex during nap time!”

Now this seems like a simple, level-headed approach to the whole issue that doesn’t lean to heavily to one side or the other, right? Well, that’s exactly the problem for the good folks at Long’s former network. They want a good little automaton who will just go along with the progressive program.

A day before Kavanaugh was confirmed, the channel accepted Long’s resignation. “I want to thank those who have offered support and apologize again for any I may have offended. I hope to return to the news business in the future,” he wrote in a statement Friday. “I wish I hadn’t written (the post) because it’s caused me a lot of headache. This is a sensitive and controversial subject and I apologize for any offense that this has caused.”

Long has also deleted the original post, replacing it with an apology for daring to post his own thoughts and opinions on the subject. Totally unacceptable that he was shamed into apologizing for his comments.

The left truly has no conception of actual right and wrong, nor what it looks like to engage in compelling discussions on important issues facing the country. Sad.

MARK MEADOWS: Trump Tested Positive for COVID Ahead of Debate with Biden

A negative test soon followed.

Published

on

Then-President Trump’s bout with COVID-19 was one of the more harrowing moments of his time in the Oval Office, and a new memoir by Mark Meadows has added a new twist to the tale.

The entire episode had the nation on the edge of its seat, concerned that the sitting President, (a septuagenarian considered to be “high risk”), may fall quite ill from the virus.  Of course, being the leader of the free world has its benefits, and Donald Trump received state-of-the-art care during his brief stint in the hospital – even going so far as to take a lap around the medical center to wave to his supporters.

But now, The Don’s former chief of staff has revealed that the former Commander in Chief actually tested positive for the virus before a debate with Joe Biden – with a negative result to follow.

Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, the former president’s fourth and last chief of staff has revealed in a new book.

Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there.”

Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive.

Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.

Trump openly lauded the work of his doctors, as well as a therapeutic treatment from Regeneron, as the reason for his speedy recovery.

FedEx Driver Under Investigation After Dumping Hundreds of Packages into Ravine

As if the rest of the supply chain wasn’t already damaged enough.

Published

As the holiday season approaches, the strain on our network of mail couriers continues to ramp up, and the stress appears to have been too much for at least one delivery driver.

For many, the headaches have already begun:  Missing packages, erroneous deliveries, and unbelievable delays.  But for hundreds of folks in Alabama, something even worse has occurred.

Authorities investigating the discovery of hundreds of FedEx packages in an Alabama ravine have questioned the driver they think is responsible — and believe the driver dumped packages there at least six times, a sheriff said Tuesday.

The investigation began November 24, when sheriff’s deputies in northern Alabama’s Blount County found 300 to 400 packages in a ravine on private property, the county sheriff’s department said.

FedEx warned that the situation could take some time to sort out.

“This will not be an easy or fast case to close. … I am asking for patience from our citizens as our investigators work through this case,” Moon’s post reads. FedEx sent workers and trucks to the ravine last week to begin recovering and distributing the packages. The property is about 40 miles outside Birmingham.
The questioned driver “is no longer providing service on behalf of FedEx Ground,” FedEx said Tuesday in a prepared statement.
No charges have yet been filed in the case, and the suspected driver has not been arrested.
