‘A Violent, Dangerous Sexual Predator’: Democratic Party Donor Arrested After Third Man Overdoses at His Home
[LAWANDCRIME] A 65-year-old prominent Democratic Party donor was arrested on Tuesday after a third man overdosed at his West Hollywood home but survived. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office alleged in a bail motion that Ed Buck
...Big time Dem donor accused of being a homosexual predator. By the time the third party boy corpse is found OD'd in your house you need a really good lawyer really bad...
is "a violent, dangerous sexual predator" who "mainly preys on men made vulnerable by addiction and homelessness."

According to KABC, prosecutors sought to have Buck’s bail set at a whopping $4 million. To support that, they said that Buck is "a predator with no regard for human life" who gave the victims "dangerously large doses of narcotics."

As Law&Crime reported before, in two prior incidents, 55-year-old Timothy Dean and 26-year-old Gemmel Moore were both found dead of methamphetamine overdoses at Buck’s home. Both of them were black and gay men. So far, authorities have said that the third man who overdosed is 37 years old.

Family members of Dean’s and Moore’s previously claimed that Buck was a predator. Dean’s sister Joyce Jackson said, "I really believe he preyed on people. I think he’s sick. He really needs to get some help"; Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, filed a wrongful death lawsuit that claimed Buck had a "well-documented history of isolating black men for predatory sexual encounters."

In Aug. 2018, Nixon moved to have excerpts from Moore’s journal publicized so Buck would be prosecuted. In a Dec. 2016 entry, Moore wrote that he had "become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that. Ed Buck is the one to thank."

An autopsy report in Dean’s death claimed that Buck waited 15 minutes to call paramedics after the victim died in his apartment. According to the New York Daily News, Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office revealed that an investigator’s narrative said Buck initially told authorities "he attempted CPR for 15 minutes before contacting 911."

Seymour Amster, Buck’s attorney, disputed that timeline, saying Buck was taking a shower in another room when Dean fell unconsciousness at Buck’s Laurel Canyon apartment before dawn on January 7.

"He finds Timothy in a state of being unresponsive in the living room. He doesn’t wait to call 911. He calls, and as he’s on the phone, he’s getting instructions to perform CPR," Amster told the Daily News. Law&Crime earlier reported that Dean’s death was ruled an "accidental" overdose on methamphetamine.

According to that report, Buck told Sherlocks Dean was engaged in "bizarre behavior" just before his death and that he used a piece of clothing to fashion a noose and then placed it around his own neck. "The witness relays that he removed the ’noose’ and the decedent then stood up and began throwing clothes up in the air," the report notes.

A search, however, turned up no such evidence of a noose.

"[N]o items of clothing that appeared to be fashioned like a noose" were observed by Sherlocks on the scene, according to the report. Buck also allegedly told Sherlocks "he did not see the decedent taking any drugs and that they did not have sex."

Amster denied wrongdoing on behalf of his client.

Dan Brouillette: ‘Impossible’ to Reduce ‘Carbon Emissions’ Without ‘Nuclear Energy’
[BREITBART] A national energy strategy to reduce carbon dioxide emissions yielded from the burning of fossil fuels requires the use of nuclear energy, determined Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette, offering his analysis in a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Those opposing the use of nuclear energy ‐ or neglecting to highlight its value within a national energy policy ‐ cannot be "serious" or "sincere" in their stated concerns to address carbon dioxide emissions, stated Brouillette.

"It’s hard to know what to make of that, except it’s nonsense, for the most part," said Brouillette of opposition to fracking and broader fossil fuel development.

Increasing domestic production of fossil fuels and alternatives increases American autonomy in the dimension of energy, explained Brouillette. "[We must reduce] our dependence on countries that, candidly, do not have our interests in mind. ... In the ’70s [and] ’80s we were highly dependent [on the Organization of Oil Exporting Countries]. These were countries that were adversaries, quite frankly, and I am very proud of the work this president [and] administration has done to turn that around."

"I’m happy to report that in 2019, the United States is now the world’s largest producer of natural gas and oil, and we surpassed Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
as the largest exporter of oil in the world, so we’ve turned this around quite dramatically," noted Brouillette.

Democrat presidential candidates such as Sens. Bernie Sanders
...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
(I-VT) and Elizabeth Being Native American has been part of my story since the day I was born Warren
...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless...
(D-MA) oppose development and use of nuclear power.

Biden: My Child-Care Tax Credit Will Add 720 Million Women To The Work Force!
[Hot Air] Only 720 million? Why not just promise a gazillion? Joe Biden tried selling his child-care tax credit plan yesterday by lamenting that the US tax code provides deductions for racehorses but not for child care. His plan, Biden promised, would put into the workforce six times as many adult women as actually exist in the US at the moment.

Bill de Blasio: A candidate not even his wife would vote for?
Siena pollster Steven Greenberg said the "0" listed in the cross-tabs really means less than 1%.

"One person in the sample chose Bill de Blasio
...cryptocommie mayor of New York and for some reason a Dem candidate for president in 2020. Corrupt and incompetent, his qualifications for office seem to consist of being married to a black woman, with whom he honeymooned in Cuba. He has a preppy-looking son named Dante, whose Divine Comedy involved getting his back hair up when a police car drove past him slowly...
for president," Greenberg said. That’s out of 359 Democrats queried statewide.

So, symbolically, or perhaps figuratively, or who knows, maybe literally, that lone supporter would have to be him, meaning, his support is so low it might not even reflect support from his wife or family members who could pad it upward.

Oh, maybe they support him in real life, but if they did, their support factor would be so significant given the wasteland out there that it might just make a difference in the guy who's currently polling zero. Unless of course, they aren't for him, either.

Socialism, incompetence, an angry police force on an undeclared strike with a rising crime rate, the turning of public schools into garbage dumps by getting rid of gifted and talented programs, and businesses and talent fleeing the city due to a hostile business environment all amount to de Blasio's sorry entire record. How does he look at himself in the morning?

#4  359 persons out of the several million voters in New York State is a pretty small sample. Even if it was truly random (which is doubtful) the error band is pretty big

so, it is possible that as many as 1% do support deBlasio

Trump administration revokes California’s authority to set auto mileage standards
[FOXNEWS] In a move President Trump said will reduce car prices but will also anger environmental groups, the administration is revoking Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,'s authority to set strict fuel economy standards.

Trump announced the move Wednesday, saying the decision was made "in order to produce far less expensive cars for the consumer," while making cars safer at the same time.

"This will lead to more production because of this pricing and safety advantage, and also due to the fact that older, highly polluting cars, will be replaced by new, extremely environmentally friendly cars," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,'s authority to set its own emissions standards tougher than the federal government's goes back to a waiver issued by Congress during passage of the Clean Air Act in 1970. The state has long pushed automakers to adopt more fuel-efficient passenger vehicles that emit less pollution. A dozen states and the District of Columbia also follow Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,'s fuel economy standards.

The Trump administration decision revokes that waiver, touching off what is sure to be another high-profile legal fight with the Golden State.

In anticipation of the move, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Tuesday that the administration's action will hurt both U.S. automakers and American families. He said California would fight the administration in federal court.
