Oh, hell, a few more then

Cold night. Data.

You take care of the rest

Brian Williams is worried about fake news.

At least, he's worried about fake news he didn't fake.

You might have heard about various state AGs, who tried to use their position to push Globular Warmering crap by attacking Exxon Mobil, being ordered to appear in a Texas court.  Some of them are basically saying "I'm busy, talk to my secretary and make an appointment", and that's not going over well.
Judge Ed Kinkeade did not explain his reasoning, other than to say in a brief response filed today in Northern District Texas court that “after careful consideration” he was denying “all requested relief.”
Exxon Mobil has accused her of moving on the probe for political reasons, and Healey, who has vowed to fight the order, filed a petition with the Fifth Circuit appellate court asking it to intervene and toss out Kinkeade’s demands for her to appear — which she’s slammed as an “abuse of discretion.”
Short version: "How dare you interfere with my schedule and question my actions!  I'm being abused!"

This is the same Healey who decided to rewrite state law on 'assault weapons' all on her own. 

Wonder how much students are paying to attend this dump site for idiots?

Hey, principal, you don't decide what's public space.  Deal with it, you clown.

Short version: "How dare she criticize us!  You need to shut her up!"

You want to make a bunch of people happy, Mr. President-elect? Dump the TSA,

and prosecute every one of the molesters, abusers and thieves who used to work there.
A forty-two-year-old mom with breast cancer said she felt ‘violated’ after TSA agents attempted a body cavity search in public at the Los Angeles airport. Her crime? She informed agents she was traveling with a medical cream in her bag, like she had done numerous times before without issue. In order to continue traveling with the cream, she had to suffer a pat down ‘with pressure’, said the agents.

Denise Albert notified TSA of her chemo port in advance. They made her remove her shoes (treatment caused sores on her feet) even though she’s a PreCheck flyer, she removed her wig so they wouldn’t ruin it, and blue-gloved agents insisted on feeling up her port to “clear the area”.
These miserable bastards don't even follow their OWN RULES when they do this crap.
She said as a TSA PreCheck passenger, she was not required to remove her shoes and agents were supposed to ask whether there were any tender areas they should avoid.

Later, when they went through her bags, they joked about finding her fake eyelashes, and Albert told her she had lost all her hair as a result of the cancer treatment.

A supervisor finally intervened and gave Albert a ‘regular soft pat down’ inside a private room.

She said she had ‘never been so humiliated or felt more violated in my life’.

Go read the whole thing.  Breakables alert in effect.
