Creepy Porn Lawyer Avenatti gets MORE BAD NEWS – he's being EVICTED!!
[RS] In another hilarious turn of events, Michael Avenatti continues to step on rakes and get smacked on his beady eyed face.

The latest is that he’s been evicted from his law offices:

Michael Avenatti’s law firm was ordered to be evicted from its California offices over unpaid rent after the judge dismissed his attempt to block the eviction, the latest setback for the embattled lawyer who was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week.

The lawyer and his firm were ordered to vacate a Newport Beach office building after the court asserted its previous ruling that ordered to move out, the Los Angeles Times reported.

His law firm ‐ Eagan Avenatti ‐ was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.

Four months!! What a deadbeat.

Caribbean-Latin America
Anti-caravan protest starts peaceful, turns tense outside Tijuana shelter
[SD Union Trib] What started out as a peaceful march in Tijuana Sunday turned tense as hundreds of Mexican Racists anti-caravan protestors marched to a shelter where a couple thousand Honduran migrants were staying.

Protestors threw beer cans at riot police who blocked their entrance to the shelter as the crowd shouted, "Hondurans get out, we don't want you here," around noon in Tijuana's Zona Norte.

The march against the caravan began at 9 a.m. Sunday. Organizers said the event was not necessarily anti-migrant but anti-invasion.

"Legal migration, yes ‐ illegal invasions, no," said organizer Fidel Ernesto Gonzalez Hernandez. "That is our message."
And ours
More than 1,000 demonstrators showed up. Many wore Mexican soccer jerseys, waved Mexican flags, and sang the Mexican anthem.

Children carried signs that read, "Mexico first," and "No more caravans." The demonstrators' main gripe with the Central American caravan is that the migrants are undocumented, therefore residents do not know how many members of the caravan have criminal records and may pose a threat. .
Go figure!?!
"I'm not of the opinion that all of them should leave," said Tijuana resident Veronica Esquivel, 45. "I think that the criminals should be deported, and the ones who want to stay or go to the United States should do so legally."

Protestors also accused some of the migrants of smoking marijuana, trashing the streets of Tijuana and not being appreciative of the city's generosity.

"They are entitled, they even complain about the food," said Javier Alvarez, 48, of Tijuana.
Future Democrats
On Friday, Mexico's National Migration Institute reported that 2,679 migrants had arrived in Tijuana and 1,500 more were already in Mexicali and planned to go to Tijuana.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump said the situation in Tijuana is already getting out of hand.

"The Mayor of Tijuana, Mexico, just stated that ‘the City is ill-prepared to handle this many migrants, the backlog could last 6 months,' " Trump tweeted Sunday morning. "Likewise, the U.S. is ill-prepared for this invasion, and will not stand for it. They are causing crime and big problems in Mexico. Go home!"

Anti-caravan demonstrators said the situation is already tense. Several said they were worried President Trump might close the border.

"If they close the border because of what the migrants are doing this will become a big problem," said Javier Alvarez, 48, of Tijuana. "It's going to be chaos."

Alvarez added that many people who live in Tijuana work in San Diego and vice versa. Therefore closing the border would have drastic economic consequences.

The protestors also criticized the government's response to the migrant caravan, saying the Mexican government was doing too much and too little.

Too much because more than 53 million people live in poverty in Mexico and resources should be spent on Mexicans, not migrants.

Too little because the government's response has been disorganized and ineffective.

"Why doesn't our government set up a tent city outside Tijuana where they can provide food, shelter, and water to the migrants," said Rafael Lario Juarez, 63, of Tijuana.

The group marched from Tijuana's Zona Rio to the makeshift shelter in a sports complex near the border about 11 a.m.

The original plan was to finish the march outside a government building. But protestors decided to head to the shelter where many of the migrants are staying.

Gonzalez, one of the march organizers, tried to stop the crowd to no avail.

"The march ends here!" he shouted at the marchers. "Don't go to the shelter, that's a provocation."

Men and women carrying signs and Mexican flags walked by Gonzalez.

Some shouted back, "Shut up, we're going to the shelters."
diplomacy
At the shelter, the marchers were met with police barricades. Although some threw beer cans and pushed the police, the march did not turn violent.

Those staying at the shelter were not allowed to leave because of the anti-caravan march.

Europe
Populist Italian Mayor Promises to Bulldoze Roma Squatter Camp and Make Them Pay For It
[Breitbart] Populist League mayor of Gallarate Andrea Cassani has promised to tackle the issue of a Roma and Sinti squatter camp saying he would take a bulldozer to it and charge the squatters for the costs.

Cassani said the camp has already cost the city around 50,000 euros and 20,000 in fines due to unpaid water and electricity used by the squatters, Il Giornale reports.

According to Cassani, around 85 individuals live in the makeshift camp. Months before the populist coalition government came to power, the local government tried to improve the situation on the ground by sending city planning department officials who found 25 building code violations and ordered the Roma to fix them.

On returning three months later, the inspectors found that not only had the violations not been addressed but the camp had expanded with Cassani describing it as a "full-blown village."

"Of course, nobody paid for electricity and water," he added.

Earlier this month, League leader Matteo Salvini, who serves as interior minister, passed a migration and security decree which allows for the dismantling of Roma and far-left extremist squatter camps.

Hollywood Actors Threaten Boycott of Georgia After Kemp Victory
[Daily Caller] Several Hollywood actors have called for a boycott of Georgia’s film industry after Republican Brian Kemp officially won the state’s gubernatorial contest.

The hashtag #boycottgeorgia began to trend after Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic state representative and romance novelist, announced Friday that she would no longer challenge the Georgia Secretary of State’s election results. While Abrams acknowledged Kemp would be the winner of the election, she refused to call her speech a "concession" because a "concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper."

Before Kemp was certified as the official victor, actors were already threatening to boycott working in Georgia, a state with a large film industry that’s been dubbed the Hollywood of the South.

Finally: Brenda Snipes Resigns as Broward County Elections Supervisor
[Townhall] Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes resigned from her post just hours after the county recounted ballots from the 2018 midterm elections.

"It is true. She did send it," Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office, told the Sun-Sentinel.

According to Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman, she saw a version of the letter early Sunday morning. In the letter, 75-year-old Snipes said she wanted to spend more time with her family.

#1  Q-Tip retired!
Posted by: gorb || 11/19/2018 4:37 Comments || Top||

#2  Before I moved to Florida last year, I lived at the same address in PeeAye for 30 years. The county election bureau annually mailed applications for absentee ballots to my address in the names of the people who owned the property before the people I bought it from. No amount of calling or correspondence could clear it up and the local newspaper simply wasn't interested in reporting on it.

The entire system is dirty. It's a national problem...

#3  75-year-old Snipes said she wanted to spend more time with her family

The ol' standby excuse! Maybe she can get some tips on counting and basic arithmetic from her nieces and nephews, because Counting B. Hard.

#5  possibly a deal made where if she quits, she won't be prosecuted.
