[WashingtonExaminer] Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., shared a scathing tweet about Sen. Rand Paul on Monday written by comedian Tom Arnold, which said, "Imagine being Rand Paul's next door neighbor and having to deal with @RandPaul lying cowardly circular whiney bullcrap about lawn clippings. No wonder he ripped his toupee off."
Arnold's tweet was in response to liberal writer and noted President Trump critic, Mehdi Hasan, who had made disparaging comments about the Kentucky Republican, after Paul suggested last week that he would buy a ticket for Omar to go back to her native Somalia to "appreciate America more."
Arnold's tweet was an apparent reference a 2017 incident, in which Rene Boucher, Paul's neighbor (a rabid Bernie Sanders supporter) in Bowling Green, Kentucky, attacked him over a disagreement about lawn refuse. Boucher pleaded guilty to the assault, which left Paul with six cracked ribs, bruised lungs, and a "living hell" of pain.
Donald Jr sums up the typical PMSNBC 5th column response. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar retweeting calls for political violence against @randpaul. I’m not surprised, and look forward to the forthcoming silence from the media on the issue. Minnesotans will note the complete lack of coverage by our official Pravda Twin Cities DNC media

[AmericanMirror] Senate moves bill with up to $15,000 fines for sharing memes online.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation reported when the legislation was first introduced in 2017 that those pushing for the bill mostly include photographers and other visual artists looking for a cheaper alternative to federal courts to pursue claims, which can be expensive.
But the reality is the CASE Act would significantly lower many of the legal hurdles that protect citizens from overzealous copyright lawyers in a variety of ways, from allowing claims for works that aren’t registered, to the ability to unmask alleged infringers without the same standards as federal courts, the power for the CCB to create its own rules, limited due process for claims below $5,000, and an “opt-out” approach that can be confusing for folks who can’t afford expensive lawyers.
The CASE Act also allows claimants to collect fines without showing actual harm from a copyright violation, and leaves those trapped in the system with little recourse.
