Nikki Haley releases delegates to Trump ahead of Republican National Convention


Washington — Nikki Haley released the several dozen delegates she won in the primaries and has encouraged them to vote for former President Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention next week.

"The nominating convention is a time for Republican unity," said Haley, who served as Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, in a statement on Tuesday. "Joe Biden is not competent to serve a second term and Kamala Harris would be a disaster for America. We need a president who will hold our enemies to account, secure our border, cut our debt, and get our economy back on track. I encourage my delegates to support Donald Trump next week in Milwaukee."

Haley earned 97 delegates during the primary process, according to her campaign.

Her release of delegates won't have much of an impact at the convention given Trump already secured the 1,215 delegates needed to become the presumptive Republican nominee. State party rules also have an effect on how delegates can vote during the convention.

Haley's spokesperson Chaney Denton indicated that Haley would not attend the convention, which is being held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

SFF Hazelton: Transgender Females Allegedly Sexually Abusing Females


The nation's prison system is over capacity and upside down. Talk to anyone who has spent time in federal prison, and they will tell you it is dysfunctional on so many levels, including that every prison that houses women in the country has transgender individuals living and sharing intimate spaces with biological women. Advocates for transgender females will tell you that there is no danger to biological women. However, reports from a group of women in SFF Hazelton—a women's prison in W. Virginia—tell a different story.

The Biden administration restored Obama's policies on transgender individuals in the nation's federal prisons in early 2022. Biden's Justice Department began reviewing transgender prison policies in early 2021. Trump reversed some of the guidelines in 2018, encouraging decisions about placement on a "case-by-case" and not solely based on gender identity. However, the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) reissued the Obama-era Transgender Offender Manual in January 2022.

I was reminded of this policy shift because I regularly correspond with J6 defendants now in federal women's prisons. A group of women now write to me regularly from SFF Hazelton—two are J6ers. In the cases where I have not been explicitly given permission to include their names, I have redacted their identities.

The Tip fairy is certainly very accomodating.


California man reveals the shocking amount he was asked to leave at San Diego bar Catalina Lounge

A shocked bar patron has revealed the amount he was asked to leave as a tip when paying his bill in San Diego.

Gordon Kling showed how upon paying his $24.50 tab at Catalina Lounge in Ocean Beach he was presented with a 100% tip option, which would have doubled his total to $49.

Other options on the payment device include an extortionate 50% tip which would have added $12.25 to the man's total, together with more moderate 25% and 20% options.

Barcelona, Spain has a "Karen" problem. I think the authorities should have brought out the water canons for this episode of "Karen".

Locals in one Mediterranean hot spot load up water guns to protest mass tourism: 'Go home'
Barcelona's officials have already planned to remove vacation apartments from the city

Residents of Barcelona took out their frustrations against the increased mass tourism by visiting popular spots around the city this weekend and spraying people with water guns, demanding they go home.

"Enough, let’s put limits on tourism," was another rallying cry for the thousands of people – around 2,800, according to Catalan News – who turned up on Saturday evening at the city center and started marching around to major tourist hot spots in the city.

Organizers claimed that the protest provided an outlet for the "discomfort that exists in Barcelona" regarding increased mass tourism, which local officials have blamed for higher cost of living and housing, making it difficult for locals to live in the city.

Waking Up to Legal Weed
The challenges of marijuana legalization are becoming more and more obvious.

There was something sort of desperate in Maryland Gov. Wes Moore’s announcement last month that he had signed an executive order pardoning more than 175,000 Marylanders for misdemeanor marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. Moore’s office, of course, painted the pardon as “historic.” But there’s a deep disparity between presentation and reality, between the idea of a historic blow for racial justice and the facts on the ground.

The order will likely improve some of its beneficiaries’ employment prospects, although only about a quarter will have their records automatically expunged. It will result in no decarceration, because no Marylander is currently imprisoned on marijuana charges. And because the pardons stretch back to offenses in the 1980s, an unknown fraction of recipients are no longer alive to enjoy their new status. These tepid results make Moore’s pardon feel more like an attempt to reclaim the excitement that came with recreational marijuana legalization two years ago. “See,” it all but says, “legal weed is still something we can feel good about!”
