THE END IS NIGH: Extreme Liberal Van Jones Gives Trump Props, Slams Obama

Whoa…

Published

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and you likely feel fine, or so some silly song says, but no, seriously, it feels like it’s all about to come crashing down as a sure sign of the end of days has manifested itself for the world to see.

CNN’s Van Jones, one of the most hard left individuals in this country, just recently gave President Trump praise for something, and slammed Obama. In the same day.

See? This is why it feels like a hole has been ripped open in the fabric of space and time. Check this out.

Jones, a frequent Trump critic, reportedly visited President Trump and Jared Kushner at the White House on Friday to discuss the proposed bill, which would, among other things, improve prison conditions as well as the reentry process for prisoners getting released.

During an interview on CNN Monday morning, Jones called the experience of meeting and even getting teased by the president “surreal” after disagreeing with him on 99 percent of issues. And yet, on this issue, they have managed to find common ground.

“On this issue, he has been tough,” said Jones, noting that the president showed compassion for prisoners “that most liberal Democrat would have agreed with.”

“If we can’t get together for liberty and justice for all, something’s wrong with this country,” Jones said on Friday, according to CNN. “We’ll do something on this issue; we’ll fight about everything else, but on this issue, let’s get together.”

“I think the civil rights community right now is actually a little bit divided. Some people are saying if we can’t get everything … we’ll just take nothing,” Jones said. “Well, the problem is, we’ve been saying that now for eight years. We said everything or nothing under Obama and we wound up with nothing. And so I think continuing to do the same thing [and] expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity.”

Trump spoke last Friday about prison reform saying, “Prison reform is an issue that unites people from across our political spectrum. It’s an amazing thing. Our whole nation benefits if former inmates are able to re-enter our society as productive, law-abiding citizens. Send a bill to my desk. I will sign it.”

It’s absolutely mind-blowing to see someone like Van Jones being open and willing to sit down with the president and actually discuss this issue in a civilized manner, proving that having conservations with those who we might largely disagree with is feasible.

As far as prison reform goes, it certainly couldn’t hurt things to look at how our system operates, as it is incredibly flawed and many individuals who don’t deserve time in prison end up behind bars while dangerous criminals go free. There’s just something wrong with that picture.

Crew of Alec Baldwin Film Walked Off Set Over Safety Fears Hours Before Fatality

WHOA!

Published

on

While the fatal shooting of a Hollywood cinematographer has been deemed an accident by those involved, there appears to have been a pattern of negligence on-set, leading up to the incident.

Alec Baldwin last week discharged a “prop” firearm in the direction of crew members on the set of his film “Rust”, and, somehow, a live round had been loaded into the weapon.  The shot killed one member of the production staff and wounded another.

As it turns out, crew members were already concerned about the way in which the weapons were being handled.

The 24-year-old head armorer in charge of guns on the Alec Baldwin film where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was tragically shot and killed on Thursday had admitted she wasn’t sure she was ready for the job in an interview before filming started.

‘I almost didn’t take the job because I wasn’t sure if I was ready, but doing it, it went really smoothly,’ Hannah Gutierrez-Reed said in a podcast interview last month after leading the firearms department for The Old Way, starring Nicolas Cage – her first time as head armorer.

And that’s not all:

It comes as crew on the film revealed they walked off set hours before the fatal accident over safety fears after firearms were accidentally discharged three times – including once by Baldwin’s stunt double who had been told the gun was not loaded, and twice in a closed cabin.

A search warrant released Friday said that Gutierrez-Reed laid out three prop guns on a cart outside the filming location, and first assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the gun from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, unaware that it was loaded with live rounds.

‘Cold gun!’ shouted Halls before handing the gun to Baldwin, using the phrase to signal to cast and crew that the gun was safe to fire for the scene, the warrant said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and there is the potential for someone to be charged in the case still.

Texas Vape Shops File Restraining Order Over Sudden Delta-8 Switcheroo

The rollout of the new law was severely flawed.

Published

on

Around the world, attitudes toward the marijuana plant are changing…and rapidly.

Once considered the drug of choice for lazy stoners, wannabe hippies, and professional pizza delivery drivers, recent research into the cannabis plant have shown there to be a myriad of potent compounds within.  And, with the legalization of hemp, (which shares some of these magical effects), even the squares are using CBD creams and edibles to treat everything from muscle soreness to depression and anxiety.

Now, as chemists and agriculturists have concocted a way to make hemp into a very marijuana-like substance, authorities in places where marijuana is still illegal are having trouble with the letter of law and how to apply it to not-quite-synthetic weed.

Texas CBD and vape shops are searching for answers, and some have filed temporary restraining orders against the state after they say health officials abruptly announced last week that they had added delta-8 THC products to their list of Schedule I controlled substances.

Delta-8 is a less-potent alternative to the delta-9 product known as marijuana, though it produces similar effects.

And the rollout of this reading of the law was flawed as well.

Official state documents show that for months, the Department of State Health Services has considered the product illegal.

But Ashley Flood, who owns a CBD American Shaman franchise location in Allen, and other shop owners and consumers say they were never informed of the decision that Commissioner John Hellerstedt announced more than a year ago or the move to update the state’s website.

“We didn’t find out from the state, we didn’t find out from law enforcement, we didn’t find out via letter, email — nothing. We found out from one of our suppliers,” she said after finding out about the change to the DSHS website.

And despite Flood’s understandable frustration, she has also suggested that her conversations with customer who are in law enforcement belied that the enforcement of this delta-8 rule is not a high priority for Texas authorities.
