If you had read the full complaint of NY vs. Trump you would have learned about these other hideous alleged crimes. He might be a monster..........

The list of NeverTrumpers who disagree with the President's indictment continues to grow. No word from the fat and lazy Bill Kristol and marital expert Charlie "3 Wives" Sykes.

Two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics have dropped the hammer on Alvin Bragg after details of the Manhattan district attorney’s indictment were revealed.

Unlike their Democrat allies, former Trump administration National Security Advisor John Bolton and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) didn’t gloat and celebrate.

Instead, they trashed Bragg for bringing a weak case and predicted a “quick acquittal” for Trump.

Speaking about the indictment, Bolton appeared devastated at the realization that Bragg’s get-Trump is “weaker than [he] feared.”

“As someone who very strongly does not want Donald Trump to get the Republican presidential nomination, I’m extraordinarily distressed,” Bolton told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

A lot has changed in 100+ years except for antiquated laws.

The Bayside Canadian Railway, a 200-foot pseudo-railroad in Canada, has seemingly been dismantled after a court closed the legal loophole it was built to exploit. The rails have apparently been torn up and paved over, wiping away evidence that the so-called railway ever existed. We contacted the owner who didn't comment on the railway before publishing. We'll update this story if we hear back.

Built around 2012, the Bayside Canadian Railway was operated by a subsidiary of American Seafoods to circumvent the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, known as the Jones Act. The law requires shipping between American ports to be handled by American-built, American-flagged vessels, with an exemption for goods moved by rail in Canada. The Bayside Canadian Railway used this loophole to push semi-trucks containing foreign-shipped seafood 100 feet down a short railway and back, ostensibly fulfilling the Jones Act's rail shipping clause.

What is funnier than peace, love and understanding? Vladimir Putin expecting an international probe on the Nord Stream attack.

Russia's Nord Stream pipelines suffered a coordinated sabotage attack last September, cutting off a key route for the delivery of Russian natural gas to Europe. Moscow has accused the US and its allies of involvement. US officials and media have attempted to deflect by blaming a mysterious 'pro-Ukrainian group' unaffiliated to any government.
Russia wants to establish an international investigation into the Nord Stream attack, and hopes Denmark will support it, President Vladimir Putin has announced.

This is sad. But it goes to show it isn't guns who kill people. It isn't machetes who kill people. It is people killing people. People filled with hate and/or mental illnesses.

April 5 (UPI) -- A man with a hatchet killed at least four children in a kindergarten in southern Brazil, authorities said on Wednesday.

Jorginho Mello, the governor of Santa Catarina confirmed the deaths in a tweet, adding that three were injured and the suspect had been arrested.

Everybody has their shtick. For me, when at restaurants I want good food and better service.

'In UK's rudest restaurant Karens called me a virgin and said my roots need doing'
EXCLUSIVE: A Daily Star reporter was invited to the restaurant with the worst service in the world – and let's just say it certainly lived up to its name...

I'm guessing there are more reasons why she isn't being hired at this time. I'm quite sure that this Social Media excursion will not help her.

‘I can’t quit a job unless I have another one’: Woman says she ‘underestimated’ how hard it was to get a job after quitting
"Y'all let me quit my job, all on my post congratulating me, 'You go girl, you got this. Me next, I'm praying for you.'"

Being stabbed at 2:35AM raises several questions. A targeted murder? Are affluent San Francisco residents prone to the violence every day folks are?

Cash App creator Bob Lee, 43, was fatally stabbed in San Francisco early Tuesday morning, according to multiple reports.

San Francisco police responded to a report of a stabbing in the city's downtown Rincon Hill neighborhood at approximately 2:35 a.m. Officers arriving on the scene found a 43-year-old man with multiple stab wounds who was later identified as Lee by CBS News.

Police said he was taken to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Let us take a look at Culture, shall we? We are now in Spring. The next thing you know we wil be in Summer. "And In Thong-Related News".

In which, a project is undertaken:

The controversial style made its show-stopping fashion debut back in 1997, when low-rise jeans and thin bodies ruled both runways and television screens. Having been plus-size all my life, this created problematic body image issues for me growing up, which took years to work through.
Years of “working through” one’s state of heftiness obviously being preferable to actual, you know, weight loss. Which, one suspects, might have taken less time. But hey, we mustn’t reach for the stars.

If I were President. What would you do Mis Hum? Out of the UN and out of NATO.

There was an awkward scene that played out at NATO headquarters in Brussels on Tuesday during the formal ceremony which made Finland the alliance's 31st member. With top Finnish officials in attendance, Ukraine's foreign minister was also there, alongside Secretary of State Antony Blinken. A group of protesters reportedly chanted just as Finland's flag was raised: "Ukraine in NATO!"

According to Politico, the Ukrainian top diplomat took the opportunity to state Kiev's goal:

Arriving at NATO headquarters in Brussels on the day Finland formally became a member of the alliance, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba offered congratulations and declared that "Ukraine is aiming at reaching the same goal, becoming a full member of NATO."

"It will be one of the topics of our conversations here in Brussels, of how can we move forward," he said.

Good news single ladies. Rupert Murdoch is now an eligible bachelor. What he lacks in machismo he makes up in cash.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s engagement to conservative radio host Ann Lesley Smith has ended, according to reports released Tuesday.

Sources close to Murdoch, 92, told Vanity Fair that he and Smith abruptly called off their engagement. The couple were due to wed in the summer of 2023, less than a year after Murdoch finalized his divorce from former model Jerry Hall.

The couple announced their engagement in March after being photographed on vacation with Smith in Barbados a month or so earlier. He popped the question on St. Patrick’s Day in New York City, and published the news in his own news outlet, the New York Post, days later.

Living in the Frozen Tundra has a couple of drawbacks. One of those is shopping. I guess I will remain on a first name basis with my UPS driver. The Amazon drones won't be coming here anytime soon. And that's OK I like Zach.

THREE DAYS BEFORE Christmas 2022, Amazon Prime Air was set to deliver its first commercial package by drone to a residential customer in Lockeford, California. It was supposed to be a celebration, a culmination of tens of thousands of test flights, years of dealing with Federal Aviation Administration paperwork, a decade of development, and $2 billion of investment.

Early that morning, about 40 people—including FAA officials, Amazon engineers, public relations staff, and Prime Air chief pilot Jim Mullin—waited outside a steel frame warehouse on a flat, 20-acre parcel of land flanked by vineyards. Inside the warehouse, a flight crew had loaded the drone—a six-propeller, roughly 80-pound carbon-fiber MK27-2—with a lithium-ion battery and a box containing an Exploding Kittens card game. But when the operator in charge tried to load the flight package, the software wouldn’t boot up, says a former employee who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation: “That’s when panic started to set in, and the higher-ups went into war-room mode.”

"No solicitation" signs are pretty cheap unless you are a: Genius Award Winner.

A homeowner has been jailed for battering a salesman who knocked on his front door 'too hard'.

Andrew Lester, 39, flew into a rage after getting fed up with local children knocking on his door and running away in Abertillery, Wales.

Lester was 'wound up' by the doorknocks and lashed out when door-to-door salesman Kerry Hagerty, a grandfather, knocked on his front door in June last year, Newport Crown Court heard.

You will not become a snow man. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day

Francis Zuber was skiing at Mt. Baker Ski Area when a "flash of color" in the snow caught his attention. He quickly realized someone was buried under the snow.

"I only caught a glimpse of his board but it was enough to get my attention," Zuber told Fox 13.

Ian Steger said he was snowboarding through the trees and the snow collapsed behind him, knocking him into the deep snow head-first.

Zuber's GoPro footage shows him working frantically to clear enough snow for Steger to be able to breathe. Although Zuber seems calm in the video, he said he was "freaking out" internally.

"It was really frightening," he said. "I mean, adrenaline is one heck of a drug."
