"Student headed to prison for registering dead voters for Democrats"

Via Instapundit:  “In July 2016 Spieles’ job was to register as many voters as possible and reported to Democratic Campaign headquarters in Harrisonburg,” a U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesperson said. “In August 2016, Spieles was directed to combine his registration numbers with those of another individual because their respective territories overlapped. After filling out a registration form for a voter, Spieles entered the information into a computer system used by the Virginia Democratic Party to track information such as name, age, address and political affiliation. Every Thursday an employee/volunteer hand-delivered the paper copies of the registration forms to the Registrar’s Office in Harrisonburg.”

Later that month, someone at the Registrar’s Office called police after another employee saw a name they recognized on a registration form.

The name was the deceased father of a Rockingham County Judge.

“The Registrar’s Office discovered multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations. Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers,” the spokesperson continued. “The Registrar’s Office learned that the individuals named in these forms had not in fact submitted the new voter registrations. The assistant registrar’s personal knowledge of the names of some of the individuals named in the falsified documents facilitated the detection of the crime.

“Spieles later admitted that he prepared the false voter registration forms by obtaining the name, age, and address of individuals from “walk sheets” provided to him by the Virginia Democratic Party, fabricating a birth date based on the ages listed in the walk sheet, and fabricating the social security numbers. Spieles admitted that he created all 18 fraudulent forms himself and that no one else participated in the crime.”

"Chinese passenger chucks coins into plane's engine for luck"

Via RedditThe 80-year-old threw nine coins at an engine of China Southern Airlines flight CZ380 as she was boarding on the tarmac. Eight of the coins missed their target but one nestled inside an engine, airport police said, adding that a passenger spotted her and reported it to authorities.

The incident was soon trending on Weibo and police added in a statement: "After investigation the involved passenger surnamed Qiu said she threw the coins to pray for safety. According to Qiu's neighbour, Qiu believes in Buddhism.

"The plane is boarding again for takeoff."

Hundreds of thousands of Weibo users had a field day, with one commenting sarcastically: "Grandma, this is not a wish fountain with turtles.

"Who Pays on the First Date? No One Knows Anymore, and It’s Really Awkward"

Via Instapundit:  There was a time when Tinesha Zandamela would dig around for her wallet at a first date, anticipating that the guy would insist on paying.

That was before she went out with one who “forgot” his wallet, or the one who requested to split the check 50-50 after eating nearly all the food. Now when the bill arrives, she sits still, not even attempting what some call “the reach.”

“If you reach, you could end up with the entire bill,” said the 23-year-old in Provo, Utah. “No one is going to stop you.”

Love in the time of Tinder is upending an age-old tradition between men and women: that moment when the bill arrives and the woman feints for her wallet—but expects the guy will insist on paying.

Walking while white in New Orleans

This happened in New Orleans this past Saturday. These two poor saps were attending a Church conference when they decided to walk down the street to their hotel.

If you listen to the news reports you can hear the usual story. "Nothing to see here. It is perfectly safe. Crime is actually down statistically. Don't be racist. When they go to rob you just give it up. Don't disrespect them by having your head turned when they are playing the knockout game. Give up your white privilege."

What Church in their right mind would have a conference in New Orleans? Oh. The Unitarians. Never mind.

President Trump listens to Uncle Saul

President Trump has it exactly right here. Make them live up to their own bullshit. They claim collusion and obstruction. While all the time Obama knew what the Russians were doing and did nothing. Most likely to cover up what he was doing. What they did was have an opposition research firm make a phony dossier that was used by the partisan FBI to get a FISA warrant to tape Candidate Trump and his associates. Then that information was illegally unmasked and spread out through the government in the expectation that it would be leaked. There are literally dozens of felonies in that chain of events. Of course Mueller is not going to follow up on that as he is only tasked at destroying Trump with his merry band of Democratic Donor Lawyers and left wing partisans. Trump needs to clean the swamp. Now.

Why does this guy have a press pass....or better yet why is he allowed to live?

CNN Reporter Complains About Being Blackballed After Spending Press Briefing Interrupting Spicer

Daily Caller by Alex Pfeiffer June 26, 2017

WASHINGTON — CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta spent the White House press briefing Monday rudely interrupting White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Acosta has been complaining about the White House’s increased use of off-camera briefings, and instead of waiting to be called on like other reporters Monday, he decided to shout out his questions. The Daily Caller counted a total of five interruptions during the briefing.
Spicer called on a reporter who had raised her hand and Acosta interjected himself and asked if President Trump believes the health care bill in the Senate is “mean.” Spicer replied, “There’s no camera on Jim.” Acosta then repeatedly asked, “Why don’t you turn the cameras on?” Spicer then apologized to the reporter Acosta was interrupting.

"Trump-Russia ties may work against Dems"

Via InstapunditMonths of harping on President Trump’s purported ties to Russia may end up backfiring on Democrats as the White House turns the focus to former President Barack Obama’s failure to address Russian hacking, operatives from both sides said.

On ABC’s “This Week” yesterday, Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway cited a Washington Post report detailing Obama’s modest response and public silence about evidence of Russia’s intent to hack U.S. election systems, with an anonymous Obama official admitting “we sort of choked.”

“I have a hacking question for the Obama administration: Why did you, quote, ‘choke’ in the name of one of their senior administration officials? Why did you do nothing? Why didn’t you inform candidate Trump?” Conway told host George Stephanopoulos. “I know you thought Hillary would win, but how could you not reveal important information about Russia hacking? ... I think the previous administration has a lot of questions to answer given this Russian obsession by everyone.”

Trump tweeted mockingly yesterday, “Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!”

"U.S. warship stayed on deadly collision course despite warning - container ship captain"

Via RedditA U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship's captain.

Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17.

In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship's captain said the ACX Crystal had signaled with flashing lights after the Fitzgerald "suddenly" steamed on to a course to cross its path.

The container ship steered hard to starboard (right) to avoid the warship, but hit the Fitzgerald 10 minutes later at 1:30 a.m., according to a copy of Captain Ronald Advincula's report to Japanese ship owner Dainichi Investment Corporation that was seen by Reuters.

The U.S. Navy declined to comment and Reuters was not able to independently verify the account.
