New York Shit for Pants Jerry Nadler wins primary.

Rep. Jerry Nadler triumphed on Tuesday over his onetime ally Rep. Carolyn Maloney in a primary race that pitted the two incumbent Democrats against each other for control over a newly drawn congressional district.

Nadler, who under New York's outgoing congressional lines represented a district that hugged Manhattan's west side and continued into parts of Brooklyn, will become the Democratic Party nominee to embark on what will likely be a cruise-control ride to the November finish line in the 12th Congressional District after a double-digit victory over Maloney, according to the Associated Press.

Federal appeals court OK's absurdity.

In a split decision on Aug. 16, a three-judge panel of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that “gender dysphoria” is a protected class under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The court ruled that a male identifying as a female, named Kesha Williams, who was imprisoned in Fairfax County, Virginia, should be housed with the female inmates, even though he retains male body parts.

The prison has a policy that “male inmates shall be classified as such if they have male genitals,” and “female inmates shall be classified as such if they have female genitals.” That’s surprisingly sound for Fairfax County—certainly better than their schools—but it was too commonsensical for the court.

When is enough, enough? USA wants to continue its proxy war with Russia.

The Biden administration is set to roll out with another $3 billion in Ukraine defense aid, including funds to train and equip Ukrainian forces "to fight for years to come," according to US officials cited in the Associated Press.

Also, higher energy prices for years to come? higher food prices? greater scarcity? It appears precisely this is what US policy-makers and Pentagon planners are settling in for: "As Russia’s war on Ukraine drags on, U.S. security assistance is shifting to a longer-term campaign that will likely keep more American military troops in Europe into the future, including imminent plans to announce an additional roughly $3 billion in aid to train and equip Ukrainian forces to fight for years to come, U.S. officials said," according to the AP report.

We've seen some selective banking preferences here in the USA. Australia gets into the act. Banks shouldn't be woke.

Bank Australia has announced it will stop funding loans for new fossil-fuel-powered cars from 2025 onwards, reports The Guardian.

The company argues that denying loans for new fossil-fueled vehicles makes sense. It believes the move means it won't "lock customers into higher carbon emissions and increasingly expensive running costs." Given this year's sky-high fuel prices, that's understandable, even if things are now starting to ease temporarily.

Of course, new cars are expensive, and not everyone is buying in this sector of the market. Thus, the policy will only apply to new vehicles. The bank will still consider loans for pre-owned ICE-powered vehicles for some time to come.

Washington D.C., you wanted to be a Sanctuary City.

Now suck it up Buttercup.

For the second time, the Pentagon denied a request on Monday by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser to activate the National Guard to assist with thousands of migrants who have been arriving in the nation's capital in recent months.

Bowser first asked for National Guard help last month, but it was rejected by the Pentagon on Aug. 4. She then sent another letter on Aug. 11, requesting that 150 National Guard troops be deployed to "help prevent a prolonged humanitarian crisis in our nation's capital resulting from the daily arrival of migrants."

Defense Department executive secretary Kelly Bulliner Holly wrote in a letter to Bowser on Monday that the D.C. National Guard is not trained to assist migrants and activation would lead to "diminished readiness" for the troops.

Actions? Consequences? Whostaa talkin' about?

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is expected to announce Wednesday at the White House that he will cancel $10,000 in federal student loans per borrower making $125,000 a year or less.

He is also expected to extend the federal student loan payment pause for several more months, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Although Biden had previously said he would make an announcement on student debt cancelation by the end of the month, the White House has insisted that no final decision had been made yet.

“The President will have more to say on this before August 31," White House spokesman Abdullah Hasan said. "As a reminder, no one with a federally-held loan has had to pay a single dime in student loans since President Biden took office, and this Administration has already cancelled about $32 billion in debt for more than 1.6 million Americans — more than any Administration in history."

Speaking of government spending, it looks like France is loaded as well.

France’s government increased the size of the subsidy it offers to people who trade in their gas-powered cars for electric bikes to as much as €4,000 (approx. $3,976) per person, according to The Times. The money is meant to incentivize people to ditch their polluting modes of transportation in favor of cleaner, more environmentally friendly alternatives.

People who live in low-income households in low-emission urban zones that trade in their cars are eligible for the full €4,000 subsidy to put toward the purchase of an e-bike. (Traditional, non-motorized bikes also qualify for the incentive.) French citizens from higher income brackets can claim smaller subsidies.

Confession time. I've been intoxicated. I've been with friends who were intoxicated. Never ever in my wildest dreams or theirs would we have come up with this 'prank'


Doctors have removed a steel cup from a man’s rectum ten days after his friends put it up there as a drunken prank.

The 45-year-old from Balipadar, India, had the substantially sized object removed via surgery at a local hospital.

The incident, which took place on 19 August, apparently happened when the unfortunate man was out drinking with his friends at Surat in Gujarat, an Indian state which prohibits alcohol.

Unfortunately, in his inebriated state he released the handbrake, and began rolling towards the pool. Moon simply sat back and waited, as the car crashed through the fence around the pool and into the water. via thisdayinmusic.com

Patron Assaulted Papa John's Worker With Metal Pizza Paddle Over Missing Toppings, Cops Charge

Incensed that his pizza did not include the requested toppings, a Maryland man allegedly assaulted a Papa John’s worker with a metal pizza paddle in an attack that ended with the employee stabbing the customer in the stomach with a “pizza spear,” according to police.

Investigators say that after purchasing a pizza Wednesday evening, Herbert Harris, 40, returned to a Papa John’s in Woodbridge, a community 20 miles outside Baltimore, to “complain that garlic sauce and pepperoncinis were not included with the pizza.”

Harris, cops say, argued about the missing Italian peppers and garlic sauce with Robert Klein, a 26-year-old Papa John’s employee. During the dispute, Harris went behind the counter and “began chasing Klein around the store, physically assaulting him with a metal pizza paddle,” according to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

Why let a 'handicap' bog you down? Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

David Aguilar was surrounded by toys as a child, from the tiny ones inside Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs to Transformers robots, which he knew instinctively how to turn into vehicles, with no need for instructions. Most of all, he loved Lego. “With Lego you can build anything,” he says. “All you need are the pieces and you can build whatever you want.”

He built his first model of Titanic from them at the age of five — and then, “one day in his room”, just four years later, “he assembled an arm”, his father, Ferran, recalls. It was made from “a wire, a key chain, duct tape, parts of a robot and the most traditional Lego pieces”.
