    Dorsey Nunn knows more about one particular line in the California Constitution than anyone would ever want to. It’s the line that harkens back to the dark days after the Civil War, the one that bans slavery — more or less. “Slavery is prohibited,” says Article 1, Section 6 of the Constitution, the set of fundamental principles that defines what this state stands for. “Involuntary servitude is prohibited except to punish crime.” The 69-year-old spent a decade behind bars for a 1971 robbery in which his accomplice killed a man. At San Quentin State Prison, he mixed chemicals for detergents that cleaned California’s tunnels and highways and hefted 50-pound sacks for later delivery. Two of his brothers were in prison at the same time. Today he runs an advocacy group called Legal Services for Prisoners with Children. He has spent decades fighting for the rights of formerly incarcerated people....

    Carl Hart is a Columbia University professor of psychology and neuroscience. He chairs the psych department and has a fondness for heroin – not only as a subject of scholarly pursuit but also as a substance for personal use. At 54, the married father of three has snorted small amounts of heroin for as many as 10 days in a row and enjoyed it mightily – even if, as he recalls in his new book "Drug Use for Grown-ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear" (Penguin Press), he’s experienced mild withdrawal symptoms "12 to 16 hours after the last dose."

    Politico scored an unusual scoop when it reported that President Joe Biden, as their headline put it, “privately tells governors: Minimum wage hike likely isn’t happening.” The scoop is unusual for a couple of reasons, the first being that the headline is at best a misleading oversell when compared with what Biden is reported to have said in the article by Natasha Korecki and Christopher Cadelago: When Joe Biden met with a group of mayors and governors last week he bluntly told them to get ready for a legislative defeat: his proposed minimum wage hike was unlikely to happen, he said, at least in the near term. “I really want this in there but it just doesn’t look like we can do it because of reconciliation,” Biden told the group, according to a person in the room. “I’m not going to give up. But right now, we have to prepare...
    A pregnant woman who discovered her husband has been driving an 'attractive' female colleague to work and booking taxis for her when he's unavailable has divided opinion after accusing him of prioritising his co-worker over her. Posting anonymously on Mumsnet, the UK-based wife explained she recently found out that her other half has picked up the woman on his way to work on multiple occasions. The mother-to-be said she's 'not bothered' by the gesture but is concerned that her husband didn't ask if she was comfortable with it first. She added that her husband 'can't be bothered' to drive her to the supermarket despite her being pregnant with their first child, but acknowledged she may sound 'hormonal and insane'.  Many responses to the thread agreed they too would question their partner's decision to book taxis for a colleague if he can't give them a lift - however others argued the woman is...

    Former Parler CEO John Matze said Friday he is not "entirely sure" why the board of the social media company he co-founded fired him earlier this week.  "Jared [Thomson], the other co-founder, and I designed and architected the original software and I made most of the iPhone app and coded it myself for the first 2 ½ years," Matze told Fox Business Maria Bartiromo on "Mornings With Maria."   He acknowledged that there has been "recent stress" and pushback against Parler, which came to be highly favored by conservatives who perceived it to be less censored, but "I cant understand still to this day why I have been terminated." Parler has been largely offline after it was dropped by Amazons cloud-hosting division and the app stores of Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.s Google following the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, with the tech giants saying the company had failed to...

    Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., defended his vote to advance a Democratic budget resolution Tuesday that would lay the groundwork for President Biden’s $1.9T COVID relief package in the Senate, but maintained that he would not support the final legislation unless Congress could make it "work in a bipartisan way." Manchin, a moderate with a reputation for working across party lines, is believed to be the key vote who could advance or block his colleagues' attempts to pass the Biden proposal via budget reconciliation. With the Senate split 50-50, Democrats have little margin for error. "What I have told everybody, I made it very clear, from the President of the United States to all of my colleagues, we're gonna make this work in a bipartisan way," Manchin told "Special Report" host Bret Baier.  "My friends on the other side are going to have input, and we are going to do something we agree on," the senator added.

    Joe Biden lied. He lied about wanting to bring the country together. He lied about trying to work "across the aisle." He lied about being a "moderate."   It took only 10 days to expose President Biden for the fraud that he is. That’s a good thing.  After the blitzkrieg rollout of 40 executive orders that targeted President Trump programs, kowtowed to progressives (and enraged conservatives) on hot-button issues like taxpayer funding of abortion and showed Biden’s disdain for our country’s system of checks and balances, Republicans have zero excuse for cooperating with the new administration.  SALLY PIPES: BIDEN'S HEALTH CARE PLANS – THIS IS WHAT AMERICANS CAN EXPECT FROM DEMOCRATS Elections have consequences; the behavior of the winners has consequences, too.  First up: given Democrats’ fragile majorities in Congress, GOP legislators should be emboldened by Biden’s take-no-prisoners approach and push back hard against his $1.9 trillion "relief" package. The giant bill mainly provides relief to Democrats hoping to keep the House and Senate in 2022 by...

    TFW you try to blame Antifa, but only incriminate yourself. Ohio man Stephen Ayres claimed to have special knowledge that it wasn’t Donald Trump’s supporters who orchestrated the siege of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. He tried to blame Antifa, but the only thing he ended up accomplishing was implicating himself in criminal offenses. Ayres was arrested in the Northern District of Ohio on Monday. According to the FBI, Ayres and two unnamed associates took it upon themselves to post a video on social media after the Capitol siege. In that video, Ayres allegedly blamed Antifa for breaking into the Capitol. Dozens of federal criminal cases against Trump supporters show otherwise. In any event, the feds allege that Ayres blamed everyone but Trump supporters for what happened that day. It was just a vast left-wing conspiracy between … police and the media against pro-Trump individuals, Ayres suggested while acknowledging...

    Dear Moneyist, I pay my gardener $100 per month. He or one of his employees comes once a week on Mondays, and does a pretty good job.

    The New York Times In Biden’s Washington, Democrats and Republicans disagree on the meaning of ‘unity’ WASHINGTON – When he declared that his mission for history was to unite a divided country, President Joe Biden made “unity” the watchword of his nascent administration. But one of the factors that divides the United States is the true meaning of the word unity. In his keynote address Wednesday and in other public addresses, Biden addressed Republicans with conciliatory messages, vowing they would work together to address the enormous challenges facing the nation – an extremely different tone than former President Donald used to adopt. Trump. However, in the early hours of the Biden administration, the reconciliation was based more on words and symbols than on tangible actions. He did not appoint any member of the opposition to his cabinet, unlike Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, and many of...

This week, President Joe Biden wasted no time informing hundreds of senior administration officials that, unlike what they had witnessed from the Trump administration, they would all be required to treat each other with “decency” or risk losing their jobs. “We have to restore the soul of this country,” Biden told the appointees while welcoming his team via a virtual swearing-in ceremony. “And I’m counting on all of you to be part of that, and it’s not hyperbole.” WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 21: U.S. President Joe Biden speaks as Vice President Kamala Harris looks on during an event in the State Dining Room of the White House January 21, 2021 in Washington, DC.

    NELSON ALMEIDA/AFP As chairman of the American Conservative Union, Matt Schlapp plays a pivotal role in the swamp known as DC Politics. He is as swampy as inside-the-beltway creatures go, as the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) he runs is an influential annual event in right-of-center corridors.  His access to former President Donald Trump is undeniable, not just because of his own work, but also because his wife Mercedes Schlapp faithfully served in the White House Communications Department for many years of the one-term Trump Administration. As such, it should come with little surprise that someone sought Schlapp’s assistance in getting a pardon in Trump’s last days in office. It may come as some surprise, however, that Parker “Pete” Petit paid Schlapp $750,000 for two weeks of lobbying work, and failed to procure the very pardon for which he was being paid.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says the president should not follow through on his campaign promises because it's hurtful to Republicans. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy complained Thursday about President Joe Biden's actions on his first day to help people, arguing that they do not aid the cause of unity. "President Joe Biden says let's give 11 million illegal immigrants citizenship while we have 10.7 million Americans out of work. Shouldn't we prioritize those Americans out of work first?" McCarthy asked rhetorically in an appearance on Fox News. McCarthy's comment was a mischaracterization of Biden's executive orders halting the harsh and racist anti-immigrant policies of Donald Trump's, including his travel ban on Muslims and indiscriminate deportation and arrest of migrant families.

    As Kevin Dalton sat and watched the votes come in late at night on November 3, his face slowly turned into a wide grin. Joe Biden's election victory was as much a relief for his mostly-Democrat supporting family on America's east coast as for him. And while it spelt the end of Donald Trump's time in the White House, this 75-year-old might have just found himself a lucrative new job. London-based Kevin, once a successful New York businessman, is hoping to start out on his new career as an impersonator of the President-elect, three years his senior. The resemblance is striking, from the swept-back white hair to that charismatic toothy smile and even his signature aviators, he has obviously been perfecting the 'Biden look' in the mirror over the last year. Only in 2018 had he started putting himself forward as an actor and model, with his clean-cut look helping him...
    According to Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt, President Donald Trump’s nearly obsessive binge-watching of cable news is proof of his strong work ethic. “He watches every show,” the Fox host beamed of the president. With just 24 hours left in Trump’s term—which ends with his leaving office with record-low approval ratings after inciting an insurrectionist Capitol riot—the hosts of his favorite morning program seemingly came to grips with the reality that the next White House occupant won’t be such a devoted viewer of theirs. Besides complaining about seditious terrorists being labeled as “terrorists” and grumbling that Trump followers are unfairly accused of acting like a “cult,” the Fox & Friends crew also took time to do some rehabbing of the outgoing president’s presumably wounded ego.

    Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt had a revealing moment when she gushed about President Donald Trump’s work ethic by applauding him because he “watches every show.” Earhardt spoke to Kristen Soltis Anderson on Fox & Friends to discuss the political dynamics President-elect Joe Biden will face when he’s sworn into office on Wednesday. At one point though, Earhardt cut across the conversation in order to sing the praises of the outgoing president. They’ll criticize President Trump, but no one can argue he is a worker. He doesn’t drink alcohol. He stays up late at night. He watches every show. He is working. He got to work immediately. Minor note here: “watching every show” is not work. Work involves actually doing something, like counteracting the impact of the coronavirus, speeding up the distribution of vaccines, rolling out a new health care plan for America, or helping the nation heal after a mob...

    Dear Amy: My daughter’s boyfriend of seven years regularly cancels his plans to join us for an event at the last minute.

    DEAR HARRIETTE: I began seeing my boss romantically outside of work. After a while, I decided I didn’t feel the same way anymore and I don’t see myself going anywhere with him in the future. Harriette Cole  So I started canceling our dates and haven’t been answering his texts or calls after work. He has resorted to scheduling us on the same shifts so that we can be together. I try to keep the conversation about work, but he keeps asking about us. I told him there is no us. As long as I’m working there, I don’t think he is going to let go of this relationship. Finding a job right now is hard enough, so I can’t afford to quit. I know I put myself in this situation, but I shouldn’t be stuck, and he isn’t giving me much of an option here. Can’t Be Dumped DEAR CAN’T...
