Tyson wants fewer government inspectors in one of its beef plants. Food safety advocates are raising alarms – NBC News

I’m old enough to remember in 1993 the Jack-in-the-Box e-coli disaster. E coli was found in hamburger meat sold by Jack in the box where 4 people died and 700 were made very sick. You cannot expect an industry to be its own watchdog. The rules are being made in the dark. USDA Inspectors have to have at least a 4 year degree. The new rules would allow people with high school education’s to inspect our foods. Employees are less likely to report problems to their company and fear of retaliation. This is dangerous and must not happen but if it does we will be reducing climate by not eating meat because it’s going to become dangerous.

Self inspections don’t work, ask Boeing.

From the NBC news article:

Still, advocates argue that even the remote possibility of a mistake could harm public health.

“We must keep food inspectors on the line to look for dangerous diseases and contamination,” Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., chair of the Congressional Food Safety Caucus, said in a statement, “not outsource this vital role to industry employees.”

Buyer beware of Tyson products in the future.

Failed Russian nuclear test hints at Putin’s dangerous plans to beat U.S. defenses – NBC News

We had a treaty with Russia to keep them and us from developing nuclear missiles. This was called the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Our stable genius in the White House tore it up last year.

So here we are with Russia building missiles that actually spew nuclear radiation. And we can thank our stable genius for that.

Chernobyl in the sky, what a wonderful headline that could mean the end of the Earth as we know it.

MSNBC Anchor Ayman Mohyeldin Pushes Back on Kelly O’Donnell After She Scolds Him On-Air Over Immigration – The Daily Beast

I’m not sure how Kelly O’Donnell sees the world. perhaps it’s because she has flaming red hair and comes from a country where immigrants are no longer attacked. let’s take the wayback machine a hundred years and see how Irish immigrants were being treated at the time by the US. I think that she was protecting are turf at the White House Press room. But I don’t know why anyone would need to anymore since the only time you hear from the White House is one a fat, sweaty, screaming old man stands in front of a helicopter and just blurts out whatever is on the top of his head. most of it is lies, isn’t that strange, most of what we hear from the White House are lies. So Kelly O’Donnell you should apologize to Ayman Mohyeldin since the countries his people come from are continuously attacked by a lying White House.

Guinness World Records on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – Guinness World Records

First and foremost I am in no way endorsing the Guinness World records people. They are obviously whores whoare blocked by dictators so they can inflate their own egos. Their PR machine is up and oiled because I posted something on Twitter regarding this and within two minutes of my posting I got this PR piece of crap. and if they don’t mention the fact that they were on site and Saudi Arabia for the world’s largest drum event where the killer of American journalistwas glorified with a drone portrait of himself in the night sky. Or that they have endorsed dictator Berdimuhamedov who has kept his people enslaved for years. This is a company that is gone afoul.

They told John Oliver that because of the nature of their company being family-oriented they would not appear on his show. Family-oriented? Dictators? That’s how you see yourselves then shame on you.

Their attached press release will show you how little they are defending themselves because you can’t defend the undefendable.

I applaud John Oliver 4 his unending pursuit of the truth while still making us laugh out loud. he puts dictators in their place something that it seems Guinness World records doesn’t know how to do.

Democrats blast Trump’s Epstein conspiracy theory retweet as Conway defends the president – TheHill

I have a simple question. Who do you think has more power? a president who has not been in office for almost 20 years or the current president of the United States?

I find it hysterical how he is tweeting about this because he knows that the spotlight is going to shine on him. it’s been documented that he attended a party with Jeffrey Epstein we’re the only two men wear them and there were 28 women and girls some of them underage. Have you ever been to a party where there’s only two men and 28 women? I’m sure there’s much more dirt that we know nothing about.

attorney general Barr was very quick yesterday and saying that he could not understand how this happened. He’s the Attorney general of the United States and this man was in his custody. Why was it taken off of suicide watch? He try to commit suicide two weeks ago and then Just five days ago they took him off of suicide watch. Was he seen by a psychologist and if so did they not realize that this man is a master manipulator? Psychologists are not magicians and they can’t see into our minds so keeping him on a suicide watch especially for such a high-value prisoner would have made sense. The Attorney-general failedand his duty and this whole investigation needs to have a separate special prosecutor one completely independent from the fake Attorney general.

Once again this White House tells us not to believe our lying eyes

Epstein’s alleged victims ‘angry’ and frustrated he won’t be alive to face justice – NBC News

Once again I must say that I am not a conspiracy theorist it anyway. But I do have an inquiring mind.

A little over two weeks ago Jeffrey Epstein tried to kill himself in the same jail that hewas in when he did eventually committed suicide today. Would they not have had him on suicide watch and if not why not?

yes all of the information that came out yesterday was quite damning but he had to know this was coming out so it makes no sense to me that he’s worried about his reputation and therefore committed suicide. The fact that he recruited young women of 14 and 15 in Mar-a-Lago in the 90s was very telling. I just had a conversation with one of my neighbors and we talked about this then she asked me about Bill Clinton. you know, I don’t think that Bill Clinton is an angel but in any way but I think that he did not have the opportunity because in 1992 he became president and from that point on other than is dalliance in the oval Office he was pretty much under guard by the Secret Service from that point on. So I don’t think his name is going to be prominent in this investigation.

On the other hand, the current occupant of the White House has his feet in the excrement big time. The most damning story is the one about the party that had 30 people, 28 underaged women and Epstein and Trump seems like a recipe for disaster. they used to call Reagan the Teflon president but Trump is not Teflon he has some weird superhero coding on him because it seems that nothing sticks. I wonder if sex with underage sex slave women well even vent his approval rating. He has given the religious right what they want and that’s judges and honestly these people who are religious don’t understand that they sold their soul to the devil.

I’m sorry that the victims will not have their day in court. At least the estate has the most expensive private home in New York City. Weirdly located directly across the street from where Bill Cosby and his family lives. Bill Cosby is in jail for the rest of his life but they still have that a house.

Sen. John Barrasso throws cold water on new gun legislation – POLITICO

Let’s get one important fact out of the way right off the bat:

Just 2 percent of Barrasso’s 2017 fundraising is Wyoming-based

and if you look deeper you’ll see that he is absolutely not allergic to getting dark money, money from packs that don’t tell anyone where this money is coming from. You can thank citizens united for his still remaining in the Senate.

I love how he talks about how a red flag law could hurt law-abiding citizens. DUI laws are exactly the same thing. no one would even consider saying that the DUI laws hurt law-abiding citizens but when your money comes from the gun lobby you will say anything even if it comes out of your ass.

And what hurts me the most is that he only represents a little over a quarter million people when Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris of California each represent a little bit over 20 million people. Taxation without equal representation anybody?

Until we clean the slate in the House and Senate of Republicans that refused to abide by the will of the people and I am talking about 80 to 90% of the American people including 72% of Republicans at the last poll who are looking for and are demanding common Sense gun control.

Enough is enough

These are Tucker Carlson’s leading advertisers – Media Matters for America

I remember the first politically oriented boycott that I participated in was the Cesar Chavez grape boycott. As consumers of news programming we don’t have a lot of say on what we see or hear. So, it’s important that we vote with our dollars. People like Tucker Carlson who’s few lies and hatred on their shows need to be I told that this is not acceptable. I’m not talkin about not allowing him to speak but rather letting them find other platforms to do so. He has the second highest rated show on cable news. But right now his pop advertiser is the my pillow scam company. I find it interesting that anytime I see anyone on television wearing a religious object during an advertising immediately I think that there is something wrong here. My pillow is well known to be a poor product that causes people to get sick but there it is that giant cross on the my pillow spokesperson.

We have choices and if advertisers start seeing that we choose their competitors because of where they advertise they will find other places to advertise. this is very much like a game of whack-a-mole but still we need to make our voices heard.

What about Gilroy? Trump’s White House is ignoring California mass shooting – Salon.com

Infrequently onphone Town Hall meetings with my congressman Jimmy Gomez. Once I had the opportunity to ask him a question about funding for California. he told me that the republicans in Congress have a saying, ABC, anybody but California. So the largest state in the Union by population is systematically being ignored by the federal government.

Now the supposed leader of our country is going to two states that he needs to win re-election but is skipping over coming to Gilroy California after the equally horrific shooting there. I read that two of the survivors of the Gilroy massacre we’re also survivors of the Las Vegas one. They met on a Facebook support group for survivors of mass shootings. It’s amazing that we have to have Facebook groups for survivors of mass shootings. So once again Trump ignores California. He’s quite happy to come here to suck money out of his Republican billionaires but to help the state and anyway, no. although I have to say that he did say that we should be raking the forest so that we would not have any more forest fires. Helpful information like that is his Hallmark.

You’re either the president of everyone oh you’re not a legitimate president. To me Trump is not a legitimate president I like he’s a racist, xenophobe and a white nationalist. This is in a country that is becoming more and more a rainbow of wonderful humans.
