String comment = "Mexico refused to pay for President Donald Trump’s wall, and now it appears American taxpayers may never have to either.
A spending bill to keep the federal government running past Sept. 30 will not contain money for Trump’s biggest presidential campaign promise. Republican congressional leaders are instead postponing the fight over a wall along the southwestern border until after the November midterm elections — when Democrats will have more influence and be weeks away from taking control of the House.
“This is the GOP Congress giving the president a big middle finger,” said Stan Collender, a budget expert who spent years working for House and Senate committees. “It’s the Republican Congress saying, ‘We’re going to make it more difficult for you to shut down the government because it’s not good for us, even if it’s good for you.’”
While most Americans are not particularly interested in a border wall, Trump’s base is, and will likely see his readiness to sign yet another spending bill that lacks wall money as a broken promise.
“There is a strong segment of Trump voters that’s demoralized,” said William Gheen, the head of the hard-line group Americans for Legal Immigration. “Because there’s no wall, illegal crossings are at a new peak, possibly higher than Obama levels, and the Republican House spent its time on an amnesty compromise bill rather than enforcement like we were promised by Trump.”

>now that mistress is in a custody battle with him for the baby (who she said he tried to pay her to abort in the first place)
>According to court documents in that case, Miller was fucking this stripper(different woman from the first mistress) and he got her pregnant, then fed her a smoothie with abortion pills in it which in addition to making her miscarry, made her massively ill and nearly put her in a coma
>He then tried the very Trumpian maneuver of paying her to sign an NDA to keep quiet about all this
>According to the documents, a reporter found the stripper and confirmed the story with her and is currently working on a piece for another outlet so there's more to come
So basically this nigga knocked up three women at the same time, one of which was his wife. He tried to pay one of the other women he knocked up to abort her baby, and fed the other one an abortion-drug laced smoothie which nearly killed her, and Trump still actually literally picked this fucker to be his communications director until the one bitch he couldn't successfully get to abort the baby started tweeting about the whole thing and it all fell apart. Trump does literally zero vetting and somehow basically everyone he associates with turns out to be a criminal."

String comment = "A judge vacated sentences of at least eight people in state prisons and correctional facilities who were arrested by a former Jackson County deputy accused of ginning up traffic stops and planting meth on unsuspecting drivers.
Circuit Judge Christopher Patterson entered the orders Wednesday in the Jackson County Courthouse in Marianna, about an hour’s drive west of Tallahassee. State Attorney Glenn Hess also announced in court documents that charges would be dropped in the cases, all of which involved former Deputy Zachary Wester.
“(An) investigation conducted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office into the professional conduct of Deputy Zach Wester has revealed facts that undermine the state’s confidence in the case,” Hess wrote in documents filed in each of the cases.
Patterson also ordered Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts to take custody of at least five of the inmates, transport them back to the county and release them immediately.
The inmates, all of whom were convicted on methamphetamine and other drug charges, were being held at correctional facilities from Quincy to Lake City. One of the inmates had been arrested twice by Wester, according to court records.
Meanwhile, the State Attorney’s Office said charges have been dropped against thirty-plus other defendants who were arrested between 2016 and 2018, when Wester worked as a patrol deputy for the Sheriff’s Office. One of the defendants was a juvenile.
Hess on Wednesday said his office is reviewing a total of 263 cases involving Wester dating back two years.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement opened an investigation into Westeron Aug. 1 at the request of the Sheriff’s Office. The case is open and ongoing, and no charges have been filed against him. Wester, 26, of Marianna, was fired Sept. 10.

String comment = "The confirmation of Trump’s nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court seems all but inevitable. And yet a shocking new report that accuses Kavanaugh of attempting to rape a girl when they were in high school should bring the process to a screeching halt.
According to The New Yorker, a woman alleges in a letter — which is now in the possession of the Senate Judiciary Committee — that at a party in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a classmate of his “held her down” and Kavanaugh “attempted to force himself on her.”
She says the boys “turned up music that was playing in the room to conceal the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand. She was able to free herself.”
In a statement, Kavanaugh said he “categorically and unequivocally” denied the allegation.
The details of the allegations were published Friday morning, but Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee had already prepared for it, even though they were only briefed by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein on the woman’s letter this week.
Chuck Grassley, the Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released a letter from 65 women claiming to have known Kavanaugh in high school, saying he “behaved honorably and treated women with respect.”

Walmart, the largest US retailer, is sounding the alarm on President Donald Trump's trade war, saying it is "very concerned" about the possible impacts the newly announced tariffs will have on American consumers.
In a letter to US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, the company — which employs 2.3 million people worldwide, and 1.5 million in the US alone — said the immediate impact of the fresh tariffs "will be to raise prices on consumers and tax American business and manufacturers," according to a report from CNN Money.
"As the largest retailer in the United States and a major buyer of U.S. manufactured goods, we are very concerned about the impacts these tariffs would have on our business, our customers, our suppliers and the U.S. economy as a whole," Walmart wrote, according to a separate report from Reuters.
CNN Money reports that in its letter — sent around two weeks ago — Walmart asked Lighthizer and the Trump administration to reconsider putting tariffs on Chinese-made consumer goods including: Christmas lights, shampoo, dog food, luggage, mattresses, handbags, backpacks, vacuum cleaners, bicycles, cooking grills, cable cords, and air conditioners.
The letter did not achieve that goal, with the administration pushing forward earlier this week with the imposition of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, totaling more than 5,000 different products.

A west Texas man was gunned down by his two shirtless neighbors – in a shocking confrontation recorded by the victim’s girlfriend, according to a broadcast report on Wednesday.
Aaron Howard, 37, was killed on Sept. 1 in Abilene, allegedly by father-and-son neighbors Johnnie and Michael Miller, authorities said.
They’ve both been arrested and charged with murder.
The deadly confrontation was caught on the cellphone of Howard’s fiancée, Kara Box, who shared the video with KTXS.
“People deserve to know what actually happened,” Box told the ABC affiliate
The three men were arguing over a dumped mattress in an alley behind Howard’s house on Don Juan Street in Abilene, according to the video.
The dad, Johnnie Miller, 67, was holding a pistol while Michael Miller, 31, had a shotgun
“If you come closer to me, I’m gonna kill you,” the elder Miller reportedly could be heard yelling at Howard.
And amazingly, Howard didn’t back down.
“Hey, did you hear him say he’s going to kill me?” the victim told his filming fiancée.
Howard then barked at his two armed neighbors to leave the scene, according to the report.
“Put the gun up and go inside!” Howard yelled.
Box tried to intervene and told the father and son: “You’re not going to shoot my husband.”
The men kept arguing, and at least two pistol shots were fired by the dad, Box told the station.
Her video captured the sound of the pistol fire but not any images of Johnnie Miller shooting.
Box did capture Michael Miller opening fire with his shotgun.
Taylor County DA Jim Hicks said the video could be key evidence.
“Video evidence like this is always graphic and very difficult to watch,” Hicks said in an interview on the station. “But, it is consistent with the charges.”
The father and son have been charged with first-degree murder. Both are out on $25,000 bail, KTXS reported."

Families are complicated, their private tensions and political disagreements often kept under wraps.
That’s not the case with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), whose opponent in the midterm election just got a boost from Gosar’s siblings.
Six of them.
The brothers and sisters — Tim, Jennifer, Gaston, Joan, Grace and David — appeared in campaign advertisements for David Brill, the Democrat hoping to unseat Gosar in Arizona’s 4th Congressional District in the upcoming midterm election.
The Gosar siblings framed their endorsement of Brill as a matter of values, saying their brother, who has long drawn headlines for his far-right views, and his politics were simply too much for them to stomach.
“We gotta stand up for our good name,” said brother David Gosar in the advertisement. “This is not who we are.”
“I couldn’t be quiet any longer, nor should any of us be,” said sister Grace Gosar.
“I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table,” said another sister, Joan.
In an interview with The Washington Post, David Gosar, 57, a lawyer in Jackson, Wyo., said he felt obligated to speak out against his brother because of his views, though he wished it weren’t the case.
“There isn’t a kooky, crazy, nutty thing that he isn’t a part of,” he said. “What are we supposed to do?”
David said he doesn’t talk to his brother much anymore. The split came around the time of his congressional run, when, David said, his brother told him he believed the “birther” theory that President Obama’s birth certificate is fake. (A 2010 clip from Politico quotes Paul Gosar as declining to say whether he believed Obama was born in the United States, saying it was “for the courts and for other people to decide.”)

But he said “I just can’t comment. I won’t comment on the breaking up, of whether it’s that (Google) or Amazon or Facebook.”
The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open investigations into the business practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and other social media companies.
The draft order directs that any actions federal agencies take should be “consistent with other laws" -- an apparent nod to concerns that it could threaten the traditional independence of U.S. law enforcement or conflict with the First Amendment, which protects political views from government regulation.
