Highlights of the News

For husbands, Black Friday isn't until December 24 this year. And it falls on a Tuesday.

ITEM 1: Fresh Trumpenfreude courtesy of Madonna.

FLASHBACK:Vanity Fair reported on August 2, 2018, "Madonna Moved Her Family to Portugal to Get Away from Trump — And Also for the Soccer."

On Thanksgiving, Showbiz 411 reported, "Live Nation has confirmed that shows scheduled for November 30th, December 1st and 2nd at The Boch Center Wang Theatre are cancelled due to doctor’s orders.

"Madonna has been on tour since mid-September when she launched the Madame X concerts in Brooklyn at the Howard Gilman Opera House at BAM five days later than planned. She cancelled shows there, too, when her knee blew out. This time she’s not specifying what went wrong. She just finished her shows in Los Angeles, where she started a day late, cancelling her originally planned opening night. Now she’ll skip Boston entirely and move on to Philadelphia December 7th."

 At 61, she suffers ticket sales downitis.

ITEM 2: The Guardian reported, "Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to US troops in Afghanistan on Thursday, his first visit to the country where the US has been at war since late 2001.

"Speaking to reporters after a meeting with Afghan president Ashraf Ghani, Trump said he had restarted peace talks with the Taliban.

"'The Taliban wants to make a deal and we’re meeting with them,' he said. 'We’re going to stay until such time as we have a deal or we have total victory, and they want to make a deal very badly.'"

The troops were happy to see him because he is the president, and also because he is Donald Trump.

ITEM 3: Newsweek had one job.
Fake News. It is not just the enemy of the state but the butt of all our jokes as well.

ITEM 4: CNN reported, "Iran has called on Iraqi authorities to respond firmly and effectively to protesters who attacked Tehran's consulate in the southern city of Najaf.

"The Iranian statement comes amid ongoing demonstrations in Iraq against government corruption, and a rejection of Iranian involvement in the country's affairs."

Yes, Iran is upset because someone attacked their diplomats.

Well, it is not as if the Iraqis kidnapped and held hostage 51 diplomats.

ITEM 5: The Associated Press reported, Red "China reacted furiously Thursday to President Donald Trump’s signing two bills aimed at supporting human rights in Hong Kong, summoning the U.S. ambassador to protest and warning the move would undermine cooperation with Washington.

"Hong Kong, a former British colony that was granted semi-autonomy when China took control in 1997, has been rocked by six months of sometimes violent pro-democracy demonstrations.

"Thousands of pro-democracy activists crowded a public square in downtown Hong Kong on Thursday night for a Thanksgiving Day rally to thank the United States for passing the laws and vowed to 'march on' in their fight."

I fear the eventual Trumpenfreude for Red China will be bloody.

ITEM 6: The Daily Mail reported, "Iran, Russia and China are set to hold their first-ever joint military drills in a show of power to the West.

"Admiral Hussein Khanzadi revealed yesterday that the three navies would hold military exercises in the northern Indian Ocean in the 'near future'.

"Design and planning for the drills took place last month and troops are already preparing for the exercise, he said.

"The joint operation will 'send a message to the world', Khanzadi was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency."

Red China's invasion of our market shuttered our factories and financed its military.

The next 20 years may not be pretty.

ITEM 7: Fox News reported, "Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., pulled in what is being described as an unprecedented fundraising haul in the third quarter of this year, outraising top Democrats in the House of Representatives as party leaders move forward with a controversial impeachment inquiry.

"With $1.42 million in the bank, the progressive star raised more for her re-election campaign than any other House Democrat, with the vast majority ($1.1 million) of individual donations totaling less than $200.

"Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., fell behind the freshman congresswoman, the New York Post reported Tuesday."

If AOC is the future of her party, I hope they never return to power.

ITEM 8: Business Insider reported, "Bloomberg LP, the financial-data firm that presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg founded in 1981, has repeatedly been described as a sexualized, predatory environment in harassment and discrimination complaints from several women, a Business Insider investigation has found.

"In court records going back 20 years, multiple women have accused Michael Bloomberg of permitting his company to become — in the words of one former employee — a 'reckless playground' for male senior executives to 'target young, female, naive employees' for sex.

"Two women, including one who filed a claim as recently as 2016, alleged that they were sexually assaulted by Bloomberg LP executives and terminated after raising complaints."

None of the allegations have been proved. One would expect a few disgruntled employees to file a few lawsuits over a 38-year period. "Almost 40" lawsuits since 1996, as the story said, out of 20,000 employees is pretty small. Less than 1% of 1% of its employees sues each year.

Bloomberg has no shot at the presidential nomination. This story is a warning to other capitalists to stay out. Leave politics to the former bartenders and lifers.

ITEM 9: Fox News reported, "The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has arrested 90 additional foreign-born students in recent months in a sting operation at a fake Michigan university designed to draw in students who are trying to stay in the U.S. illegally, according to a new report.

"The University of Farmington advertised a 'dynamic business administration and STEM curriculum' program, but the students, mostly from India, 'knew that they would not attend any actual classes, earn credits or make academic progress towards an actual degree,' according to a January indictment.

"A total of about 250 students have been arrested since the school opened in January on immigration violations by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Immigration lawyers said in March -- after 161 students were arrested -- that the students did not know it was a fake university at the time."

Orange Man Bad!

Oh wait, Obama set the school up in 2015.


ITEM 10: Heidi Stevens of the Chicago Tribune wrote, "‘Please tell the weather girl to get some maternity dresses’: WGN morning team shares garbage notes they got from viewers while pregnant."

Her column began, "We’re still doing this, huh?

"Still writing to women who have degrees in meteorology and telling them to 'STOP WEARING PATTERNS.' Still contacting grown professionals about their butts. ('VERY wide.') Still watching morning news like we’re Us Weekly’s Fashion Police, armed with salty insults and not afraid to hurl them."

And Stevens wrote, "I think it’s telling that for some viewers, the primary thing they notice about a woman doing her job is how she looks while she’s doing it."

Yes, it tells you that television is a visual medium. Viewers want to look at something pleasant.

They should be grateful that viewers took the time to write their complaint rather than simply changing channels.

By the way, who licensed Us Weekly’s Fashion Police as the only people who can comment on clothing? The media is great at criticizing but terrible at accepting criticism.

ITEM 11: Newsweek reported, "Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, was reportedly forced to retreat from a Thanksgiving Eve bash on Wednesday after former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley tore into him over his role in enforcing the Trump administration's hardline immigration policies.

"According to one witness, Siobhan Houton Arnold, who tweeted about the incident, O'Malley drove Cuccinelli out of the Dubliner, a Capitol Hill pub meant to be popular among Gonzaga High School graduates, a school both men had attended, graduating five years apart in the 1980s, according to the [Jeff Bezos] Washington Post."

Those "hardline immigration policies" are to enforce a law a Democrat House helped write.

O'Malley provides the last 3 letters in class.

ITEM 12: Fox News reported, "A federal district court judge in Washington on Wednesday issued a temporary stay on her order earlier this week for former White House counsel Don McGahn to comply with a subpoena to appear before the House Judiciary Committee.

"Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson issued the stay following a request from McGahn’s attorneys, who are seeking a lengthier one that would allow him to appeal the decision."

She is an Obama judge. She gave him until January 3 to appeal. This may indicate that she knows she will be overturned.

ITEM 13: Reuters reported, "Ukraine said on Wednesday Apple did not give a damn about its pain, after the U.S. tech giant began referring to the Russian-annexed Crimean peninsula as part of Russia in its Maps and Weather apps for Russian users.

"Russia and Ukraine have both been highly sensitive to the way global companies identify Crimea, since Russian troops seized the territory and Moscow annexed it after a referendum that Kiev and its Western allies say was illegal.

"Apple appeared to have changed the way it displays locations in Crimea in its software, in a nod to Russian politicians who have demanded the peninsula be referred to as part of Russia."

Obama gave Russia Crimea. He held up aid until Ukraine agreed not to prosecute Hunter Biden.

President Donald John Trump gave Ukraine aid without strings attached on September 11 -- 19 days before the congressional deadline.

ITEM 14: The New York Post reported, "A Texas educator once lauded as her district’s Teacher of the Year allegedly performed oral sex on a student in a classroom, authorities said.

"Randi Chaverria, a 36-year-old family and consumer science teacher at Round Rock High School, was arrested Tuesday after a student told police she had performed oral on him twice in October, according to an affidavit obtained by KVUE."

Now we know why she was so popular.

ITEM 15: There is no war on that racist, sexist, genocidal Thanksgiving.

Sometimes the media make it too easy.

ITEM 16: If we put all the stupid people in one place, what would we call it?

ITEM 17: Or the University of Mississippi.
Elijah Moore is now the Hillary Clinton of college football.
