CATHOLIC PRIEST: THE GODLESS AND IMPOSTERS

La Crosse Catholic priest says Democrats in church are ‘Godless’ and imposters in video

In a video published by a far-right media outlet, a La Crosse Catholic priest attacks the leaders of the church,

And degrades practicing Catholics who are Democratic, calling them “Godless” hypocrites who are going to hell.

“Here’s a memo to clueless baptized Catholics out there: You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period,” Father James Altman said in the video.

“Their party platform absolutely is against everything the Catholic church teaches.

So just quit pretending that you’re Catholic and vote Democrat.

Repent of your support of that party and its platform, or face the fires of hell,” he said.


ANOTHER KAREN SIGHTING AT TACO BELL

ANOTHER KAREN SIGHTING AT TACO BELL

Taco Bell customer threatens staff, spews racial slurs over price of tacos: ‘I’m Charlie Manson’s daughter!’

Apparently, the price of tacos has risen substantially since Charles Manson’s “daughter” has last purchased them.

An enraged Taco Bell customer was recently filmed threatening the staff of a location in Missouri ,

And referring to herself as “Charlie f—in’ Manson’s daughter” —

Seemingly after a perceived discrepancy over the cost of her tacos and burritos.

Amid her profane outburst, the woman also called one of the employees the n-word, and attempted to trash the restaurant.

Taco Bell has since commended the staff for defusing the “difficult” situation.

Footage of the woman’s outburst was first shared to Reddit on Tuesday,

Under the title, “Karen from Missouri Freaksout [sic] saying she was shorted tacos (she wasn’t).”

The woman, incredulous after learning the price of her order, not only threatened employees,

But called one of them the n-word and tried trashing the restaurant.

In the clip, the customer can be seen telling a worker to “give me my g—d—- food, you little p—-,”

Before threatening to “follow you home and f— you up.”

She then begins calling him the n-word and accuses him of not being able to get a “real job.”

After some back and forth with the employee, who called her actions “very inappropriate,”

A female employee approaches and hands the woman her receipt, for her to inspect.

The employee kindly points out that her order — three Burrito Supremes, two soft tacos — comes to $15.

The angry woman expresses her disbelief at the cost of her order, at which point the employees tell her she can leave, or call corporate.

The employees then appear to tell the woman that she’s no longer welcome in the restaurant,

At which point she demands her “f—ing food” and rips a promotional display from the counter,

Shoves a bucket of straws at the employees, and attempts to shove past a Plexiglas partition.

“Punk! Punk b—-! I’m bringing my husband in here.”

“Go ahead,” an employee tells her.

“Watch me, you little p—- punk! You’re going down, punk b—-!” she yells as she walks toward the exit.

“You f—ed with the wrong mother—-er! I’m Charlie f—in’ Manson’s daughter!”

“That explains a lot,” the employee shoots back.

“You f—ed with the wrong mother—-er! I’m Charlie f—in’ Manson’s daughter!”

the woman yells back at the Taco Bell employees.

The woman then leaves the restaurant, still hurling threats and profanity on her way out the door.

Taco Bell has since commended the staff for their actions.

DAWG SAYS: I PERSONALLY HATE IT WHEN TACO BELL GETS MY ORDER RIGHT TOO.

AND BEING CHARLIE MANSONS DAUGHTER IS NOTHING TO BE BRAGGING ABOUT.


TRUMP NOMINATED FOR NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

TRUMP NOMINATED FOR NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

Twitter explodes over Trump Nobel Peace Prize nomination

Donald Trumps Nobel Peace Prize nomination created shock waves on social media,

With conservatives hailing it and liberals railing against it on Wednesday morning.

Trump was nominated by Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde,

Who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

 Tybring-Gjedde cited the president’s role in brokering a landmark normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during an interview on Fox News Wednesday morning.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said, referring to Trump.

The nomination drew strong reactions on social media from across the political media spectrum.

TRUMP NOMINATED FOR NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

Tybring-Gjedde wrote in his nomination letter that the Trump administration played an important role in ending tensions between Israel and the UAE.

“As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE,

This agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he wrote.

He also cited Trump’s “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties

And … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan,

And the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea,” Tybring-Gjedde added.

As part of the agreement, Israel will halt efforts to annex territory in the West Bank.

The UAE also ended its boycott against Israel, resulting in trade and air travel between the two countries.


NEW OSCAR REQUIREMENTS FOR HOLLYWOOD

NEW OSCAR REQUIREMENTS FOR HOLLYWOOD

The Oscars make inclusion a requirement for
best picture consideration beginning in 2024

Five years after the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag triggered controversy,

the group behind the awards has made inclusion a requirement to be considered to win them.

In what represents the most direct link between the movie industry’s top prize

And efforts to promote diversity and address systemic issues,

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that movies must meet certain criteria,

In terms of representation in order to be eligible for the Academy Award for best picture beginning in 2024.

Introduced under an initiative called Aperture 2025,

The organization said the goal was to “encourage equitable representation on and off screen,

In order to better reflect the diversity of the movie-going audience.”

Films must meet at least two of four benchmarks.

They include featuring actors from underrepresented groups in significant roles or accounting for at least 30% of the cast;

Similar criteria in terms of those working on the film behind the scenes;

A significant commitment to paid apprenticeships, internships and career development;

And significant representation among the teams devoted to marketing, publicity and distribution.

During the Oscar campaigns in 2022 and 2023, movies will have to submit a confidential “inclusion standards” form,

But that won’t prevent eligibility until the 96th Academy Awards.

Next year’s awards, encompassing movies released in 2020,

Have already been delayed by two months due to the disruptions to film distribution caused by the coronavirus.

The change was made in consultation with the Producers Guild of America,

And adapted from standards developed by the British Film Institute that must be met to earn funding for certain projects in the U.K.

The latest announcement follows a concerted push by the Academy to expand its membership ranks,

Admitting more women and people of color.

In June, an additional 819 new members were invited into the group,

45% of them women and 36% people of color.

Representation among the latter has more than doubled since the membership initiative began in 2016.

The Oscars made history earlier this year when “Parasite” was anointed best picture,

Becoming the first non-English-language film and first South Korean film to receive that prize.

NEW OSCAR REQUIREMENTS FOR HOLLYWOOD

Kirstie Alley slams new Oscars diversity and inclusion requirements: This is a disgrace to artists everywhere’

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Tuesday a new set of requirements for films to be awards-eligible,

In an effort to increase representation and inclusion in Hollywood, and it’s safe to say actress Kirstie Alley is not the least bit thrilled.

Ahead of the fifth anniversary of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy,

The Academy said it is limiting Best Picture award nominees — beginning with 2024’s slate of entries

To those that can meet requirements that “encourage equitable representation on and off screen”

By ensuring more people of color fill positions on a film set from the starring role to interns and everything in between, according to a press release published online.

Alley quickly took to Twitter to air her frustrations with the new standards, writing, “This is a disgrace to artists everywhere.”

Her tweet continued: “Can you imagine telling Picasso what had to be in his f–king paintings.

You people have lost your minds. Control artists, control individual thought .. OSCAR ORWELL.”

Hours later, Alley tweeted that diversity and inclusion “should be taught, taught so well and so naturally and genuinely that it becomes second nature to our children.”

The star was met with heavy criticism from her followers, with a majority taking shots at her acting career.

“Well cis, given your career (or lack there of) this won’t impact you. Ashe,” one user clapped back.

Another questioned Alley: “Interesting take considering most of the films you’ve acted in are overwhelmingly white.

Are you concerned about the lack of opportunities?

You know these new rules helps you as a woman, right? Studios tell who to put in movies all the time.”

DAWG SAYS: FUNNY HOW THESE CREATURES IN HOLLYWOOD,

THOUGH PRETTY MUCH UNINFORMED, CONTINUE TO TELL EVERYONE ELSE HOW TO LIVE AND ACT.

NOW WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR DOOR THEY COMPLAIN.

THE ONLY THING OF NOTE IS THE HYPOCRISY,

OTHER THAN THAT I COULD CARE LESS.


JUDGE RELEASES INNOCENT MAN “INVESTIGATION OUTRAGEOUS”

JUDGE RELEASES INNOCENT MAN “INVESTIGATION OUTRAGEOUS”

He spent nearly 30 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. A CA judge just dismissed the case, called investigation ‘outrageous’


NCIP, with pro bono partner Morrison and Foerster, re-investigated the case, filed multiple briefs, presented witnesses at an evidentiary hearing, and argued the new evidence —especially MacCarlie’s confession—more likely than not would have changed the outcome of Fenenbock’s original trial, as it did for his co-defendants.

In 1991, when Bob Fenenbock proclaimed his innocence, facing charges that he joined a frenzied mob in the murder of a Trinity County man, no one believed him.

He was convicted and sentenced to life.

In 2019, even after the Northern California Innocence Project took up Fenenbock’s case and wrote a successful appeal, freeing him from prison, prosecutors moved to retry him.

Longing to return to his home state of Hawaii, Fenenbock spent a year in California facing the pending murder case, the prospect of returning to prison hanging over his head.

But on August 24, after listening to arguments from both sides, Solano County Superior Court Judge Carlos Gutierrez gave Fenenbock what he’s been spent three decades seeking: vindication.

In a blistering order that accused a lead police investigator of “untruths, lies, deception, and coercion,” Gutierrez threw out the case, effectively ending Fenenbock’s nightmare.

“I’ve been screaming this in a cell for 28 years,” Fenenbock said in an interview. “It was surprisingly amazingly incredible that this year of BS was over and I could move on with my life.”

Now back in his native state, Fenenbock has had time to reflect back on the time he spent as a wrongfully-convicted California prisoner,

And how different life would be for him if he was still locked away in a prison system rife with overcrowding amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

But for now, he said, he’s focusing on his future.

“I’m just wallowing in my family,” Fenenbock said. “The future holds pretty much whatever I want to do, cuz as of Monday of last week, I’m free…I’m beaming, man.”

Gutierrez’s ruling undid what Fenenbock’s attorneys argued was a case that never should have been filed.

The evidence against him was largely based on the word of a 9-year-old boy, Randy, who Gutierrez ruled had been coerced into providing false statements.

JUDGE RELEASES INNOCENT MAN “INVESTIGATION OUTRAGEOUS”

The youngster was threatened that if the defendants walked, they would come for him next. He claimed he witnessed the murder as he hid below his mother’s blanket and watched as the victim was attacked.

The victim, Gary L. Summar, 37, was described in media reports at the time as a “nomad” living in remote Trinity County when he was accused of molesting a 4-year-old.

Unsatisfied with the police investigation into the alleged molestation, the 4-year-old’s mom organized a group to attack Summar.

They lured him to a campsite about 50 miles west of Weaverville and attacked him with knives and blunt objects, breaking bones and stabbing him more than 70 times.

At least, that was the cops’ version of events.

According to Fenenbock’s attorneys, Summar had one killer, who admitted his deed, mounted a mental health defense, and told authorities that Fenenbock was not involved.

Faced with a lack of physical evidence tying Fenenbock to the murder, authorities interrogated Randy, who at first claimed to have no knowledge of the murder.

“The only way (police) could get a witness to this murder was with manufactured testimony,” Jim Bennett, one of Fenenbock’s attorneys, said in an interview.

“They told him, ‘If you don’t stick to this story these guys will come and hurt your family.'”

Though Summar was killed in Trinity County, the high level of media coverage forced the case into Solano County, where Fenenbock was tried and convicted.

The media referred to Fenenbock and his co-defendants as the “Hawkins Bar 8.”

All but Fenenbock and Bernard MacCarlie, the man who admitted murdering Summar, were acquitted at trial, Bennett said.

The Trinity County District Attorney’s office — which is dealing with the tragic loss of DA Donna Daly in an Aug. 18 car crash — did not return requests for comment on Gutierrez decision.

Fenenbock went through various stages of emotion as he tried to live his life behind bars with the knowledge that he was innocent, he said.

He filed handwritten appeal motions from prison, and after a quarter-century attracted the Innocence Project’s help. By then, Randy had recanted his testimony.

Fenenbock holds nothing against Randy, who testified last month that the past 30 years have been “a lifetime of hell” as he wrestled with knowing his testimony put a man behind bars.

“I got nothing but love for Randy to tell you the truth,” Fenenbock said.

In August 2019, the California Supreme Court found that evidence of the coerced statement would have “more likely than not” changed the outcome of Fenenbock’s trial.

His conviction was overturned, but Trinity County prosecutors promptly moved to retry him. Still, a judge allowed Fenenbock to be free while the case made its way to trial.

But rather than argue in front of a jury, Fenenbock’s attorneys filed a motion to throw out the case based on gross government misconduct, a rare move that has a high legal standard for success.

Gutierrez listened to five days of testimony — including from Randy and police investigators — before ruling Fenenbock had not received a fair trial.

JUDGE RELEASES INNOCENT MAN “INVESTIGATION OUTRAGEOUS”

“To implant a memory in a 9-year-old child that, in the Court’s view, is such conduct that is grossly shocking, it’s outrageous, and it violates the universal sense of justice,” Gutierrez said, according to a transcript of the hearing.

The judge’s ruling opens the door for Fenebock to successfully sue, and payouts for wrongful convictions are generally calculated in the millions.

Famous examples include the Central Park 5 received $41 million after their rape convictions were overturned, and Craig Coley, a California man who got $21 million after spending 39 years in prison for a double murder case that was eventually overturned.

Fenenbock says he has not yet made a final decision whether to pursue legal action,

But believes what happened to him “was not a mistake,” but rather an intentional malicious prosecution.

DAWG SAYS: I AM A PRO DEATH PENALTY GUY, BUT CASES LIKE THIS ARE A GOOD ARGUMENT TO ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY THAT IS NOT USED IN CALIFORNIA ANYWAY.
