Court upheld that the school could restrict the kid’s hair length IIRC.
As I think has been stated, Trump’s latest scam is trying to hawk $400 shoes in order to pay his fines. Yes the conman is now a literal show salesman. If reality was a book, it would be derided as too unrealistic.
Problem is Trump only hires “the best people”, and those same people designing his shoes has run afoul with an international trademark.
The trademark holder has sued and won on this same kind of case before, so Trump’s latest grift might cost him more than he’s made.

Ok, but what if that man was a sexual assault victim? You’re just gonna make them pay the rapist for support on a child that they never wanted?

The beatings will continue until morale improves
That’s pretty much how it is on RuSSia’s front lines in Ukraine now. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a country treat their military like livestock before.
Also two more aircraft have been shot down: Another Su-34, and another A-50 AWACS
Their fleet of AWACS aircraft has been halved since this war began, and they are not replaceable. They may have to start keeping them well away from the front line, which will be a big aid to Ukraine’s air force.

From what I’m reading, the loss of the A-50 crew is as damaging as the loss of the plane itself. These aren’t conscripts fresh from West Bumfuck, Siberia; these are highly trained specialists. Decades of experience just got blowed up good.

Netanyahu DEADASS said, addressing his african audiences.
The father of modern zionism, theodor herzl said: “After we liberate the jewish ppl, we’re going to africa to liberate black ppl!”
Uh…RED FLAG?
Like, nyugga you couldn’t sound more like a racist white colonialist if you tried!
Netanyahu why did you just deadass say that like it’s impressive, my guy?!
And then you went on about ethiopian jews living in Israel like they’re not token minority who only serves as that black friend you refer to once a while to parry racism allegations–fellow jews whom you’ve given contraceptive shots without their consent. Why, so you don’t got black babies running around?

Democrats need to take the rise of fascism more seriously, and start holding fascists accountable, instead of acting like democracy works like Tinkerbell, where if you just clap your hands and believe in it hard enough, it will stay alive.

They sure do. Sadly, America is a one party state, they only have two one parties because of their extravagance.
At this rate, between all the atrocities the West has committed over the years, in the future Democracy will be seen the same way people today see monarchy, and absolute monarchies and dictatorships will be all the rage. Living standards will also fall to shit. So basically Starcraft, without the Protoss and Zerg.

Right now the goal for the Dems is just to survive and keep Trump out of office. They’re doing as good of a job as they can since Trump must have pissed off Lady Lucky. All they need to do is sit and look pretty as the far right burns itself out.

The GQP are skittishly trying to distance themselves from Alabama’s IVF ruling…while not necessarily opposing it.
Case in point, Trump has vocally denounced it and as such several other lawmakers are making gestures that they too disapprove of it.
Make no mistake though:
Where’s the lie?

Taylor Lorenz of Washington Post decided it was a good idea to interview Chaya Raichik let her deflect any responsibility for Nex Benedict’s murder, thus platforming and further mainstreaming her views that trans people shouldn’t exist and need to be “stopped.”
Lorenz is trying to defend her article saying “But I quoted LGBTQ people and Benedict’s partner too!” in the classic “hear all sides, marketplace of ideas” bullshit that is WHY fascism is mainstream in the US now.
There is no discrediting, embarrassing, or humbling fascists in a fair debate people. The instant a bad actor extremist sets foot on the platform, they’ve won the argument and gained followers regardless of how well they perform by high school debate club rules.
The only acceptable way to engage a stochastic terrorist is to knock their fucking teeth out, and make it clear they will lose more teeth every time they leave the house. It worked on Richard Spencer, it’ll work on the rest.
Edited to clarify: Lorenz sat down for the interview entirely on Chaya’s terms, with Chaya’s social media manager present. Lorenz even admitted she knew that video of the interview would be selectively edited and posted for Libs of Tik Tok’s own benefit a la Project Veritas, which is why she wanted to get her article out first.
Chaya made the in-person, recorded interview a condition for her comment on Nex’s murder (which no queer person wants or needs), then turned it into an hour-long advertisement of her views. Lorenz and other liberals are trying to frame this as a victory and a necessary exposure of her white supremacist beliefs (including Great Replacement) that they’ve discredited in detail, but all she did was just give her access to more followers.
The last time she did an interview with Chaya, Libs of Tik Tok got hundreds of thousands of new followers and the bomb threats and calls for violence from her rapidly expanding fanbase increased exponentially.
Lorenz is now complaining about how queer people are cancelling her for her hard-hitting “journalism.”

So IVF is a landmine because it lets couples who physically can’t have kids have access to kids that are biologically theirs? I presume this includes gay couples and the like, hence them wanting to avoid bring it up.

If I had to guess, it’s because a lot of Evangelical and Trad-Catholic rightwingers (this doesn’t include you, mind) have a hardline stance on not only abortion, but contraception and any sort of “unnatural” family planning that isn’t “God’s will.”

This article explains the Alabama IVF ruling. The short of it is that Alabama ruled that fertilized embryos are considered children and thus afforded the same rights.
This creates all kinds of problems for clinics. This entire court case was kicked off because one clinic had an accident where 3 couples lost their stored embryos and thus sued the clinic for wrongful death. Likewise, clinics regularly dispose of “old” embryos, but under this ruling such an act would be considered murder.
Much like when Roe was repealed, this has paralyzed IVF clinics as they have no idea how they and their business will be effected under the law. This has the knock-on effect that couples who relied on IVF for pregnancies are now unable to use the service.
This is what is worrying GQP higher ups. Abortion disproportionately affected couples who were less well off (typically minorities), so the cruelty was the point. On the other end of the spectrum, IVF disproportionately affects well-off couples (typically whites), so they are worried about angering their voterbase.
As far as religious or pro-lifers are concerned, again abortion typically is viewed as preventing a life while IVF is about the enabling of life. So even the theists are not happy that pregnancies are not being allowed due to this ruling.

The families of the Sandy Hook victims has voted to liquidate Alex Jones’ assets.
This due to and despite Jones’ many attempts to hide his wealth from those families, the latest of which was a proposal to pay them over time in payments that would equal roughly $55 million across 10 years (which incidentally would mean he’d never pay off the full $1.5 billion, but it would also mean he’d get to continue living in obscene extravagance and continue working his empire of lies.)
The families rejected that proposal, and now have taken the route that - as far as I understand - will leave Jones both penniless and without any assets or possessions.

Watch Legal Eagle’s video on the situation. Jone’s fanatics were already going after the families well before they sued him, even pissing on a child’s grave to “stick it to the actors.”
