Is America Taking a Dump on the Environment? Either Way, Libs Will Have Anxiety About It
Hey guys, welcome back to our USA Really daily podcast, with today’s edition for October 17. This podcast is your chance to get a quick rundown of all the pieces we’ve published today, to see which ones tickle your ears and eyes and you want to give a longer look at. We strive to bring you real stories from real Americans that the mainstream media doesn’t always want to cover.
And hey! Don’t forget about YOUR chance to win BIG MONEY from us. It’s our Global Democracy Award, and we’re looking for you to bust out some creative original material on the theme of the US government’s interference in other countries. There’s plenty of examples to choose from there! There’s several categories—we’re looking for essays, poems, films, and even memes, and if we like your stuff, we just might publish it and toss a few thousand bucks your way! Definitely check out the contest page for more details, and get us your original work by December 1!
What’s that you say? You want to hear more about easy money? Well, have you been banned from Facebook? Over 800 groups and accounts were given the axe recently—most of them totally legit. But against this background, do you have any information on illegal actions from the US government and the structures controlled by it that impose censorship in the field of social networks in particular, and the internet in general? Well, USA Really is looking to file a collective lawsuit against Facebook and is also offering a $5,000 reward if you can send us proof of these illegal actions! Find out more at our new piece “Global Facebook Purge” and the page “Zuckerberg Wanted.”
Let’s kick things off with a look at our opinion piece for the day. I laughed out loud when I first saw the title: “What Happens When America’s Ecological Toilet Overflows?” But, I guess this piece from Winston Smith actually tackles a serious issue. The Trump administration is now looking into revamping clean water regulations to let oil drillers in Texas discharge their wastewater directly into rivers and streams. This, along with the free reign Mad Hatter of an Interior Secretary, make Donald Trump Earth enemy number one. Smith really doesn’t like our current administration it seems. “It’s as if we’re being led by a swaggering blowhard of a kid into the deep woods of unknowing. Yes, America today is exactly like that,” he says. And another: “America’s chief executive has a simplistic mind and is a simpleton when it comes to decision making.” How’s that grab ya?! Be sure to check out Smith’s piece for the whole shebang.
With that, let’s bust into some news. As always, we’re going to kick off our look at the news with our this day in history piece. The Saratoga Campaign in the American Revolutionary War ended this day in 1777. The campaign was a victory for America over the Brits so woohoo there! It was a huge morale boost and even drew France into the war. And Albert Einstein landed in America this day in 1933, having fled Nazi Germany. That seems pretty huge. Of course, we’ve got a few other events for you, so give this piece a look.
And what could be more interesting than liberal SJW snowflakes? I mean, they’re like a never-ending parade of pathetic excuses for human beings. Of course, their major malfunction these days is the dreaded TRUMP ANXIETY DISORDER. Despite the fact that Trump Anxiety Disorder is not claimed to be an official diagnosis, it has its own particular symptoms “specific to the election of Trump and the resultant unpredictable sociopolitical climate” which include “feelings of loss of control and helplessness, and even excessive time spent on social media.” AKA, a large chunk of Americans are completely messed up in the head, completely lacking in any order in life, and they want to blame someone else. Here’s an idea, take off the diapers, put on your big kid pants, and take some friggin’ responsibility for your own lives!
Annnnnd, our good buddy Facebook is at it again. If you’ve been to these pages before, you know USA Really has had its share of troubles with Facebook, due to its overly-sensitive policing of pages and profiles. Well, now they’re saying they will ban people for “false information” about the upcoming midterm elections. So don’t you dare say the line is long down at the local polling place, or FB will give you the axe! Facebook instituted a global ban on false information about when and where to vote in 2016, but this latest move goes further, including posts about exaggerated identification requirements, or statements about conditions at polling sites that might deter people from showing up to vote, such as hours-long waits or violence. I guess that doesn’t sound COMPLETELY awful, but for the love of God, why can’t FB just leave well enough alone?!
And here’s something for ya—apparently the entire West Virginia Supreme Court has been impeached, leaving the state judicial branch beheaded. One of the judges fired, Margaret Workman, disagreed with the ruling and filed a lawsuit for the decision to be recognized as illegal—only one problem: There was no institution left to consider the case! A former justice appointed some other justices to come onboard, and the ruled the decision illegal, but the West Virginia House and Senate aren’t accepting this. And what’s all that give ya? A sweet recipe for governmental chaos! Get more of the juicy details in our piece, “Constitutional Crisis in West Virginia as reflection of American Political Problems.”
And here’s a big ol’ shocker: Dems are not willing to make any compromises in regard to Trump’s wall. Someone asked Pelosi what she would want to receive in return for giving Republicans their wall, and she said, “Nothing.” The minority leader said that no matter what happens in the midterms, “I don’t see any of us voting for wall funding” when the issue is expected to come up in December. She agreed that “we have a responsibility to secure our borders” but stressed that “there are ways to do that that are consistent with civilization, humanitarianism and who we are as a nation.” Yeah, okay, Pelosi. I don’t believe her for a second that she gives two craps about securing the border. Dems love illegal immigrants cause they basically always support Dems.
And, let’s face it: Your kids are fat and stupid. Well, that is, at least according to the US military. A bipartisan organization of 750 retired Air Force generals and admirals is sounding the alarm on the state of America’s youth. They were published last week, detailing the dire straits facing military recruiters. According to the report, titled "Unhealthy and Unprepared," an estimated 71% of all young people in the U.S. between the ages of 17 and 24 do not qualify for military service. Obesity disqualifies about 31% of youth, the report specified. Food just tastes too friggin’ good, and exercising just sucks too darn much. But, I guess that doesn’t bode well for the military, and the country, were something serious to go down. Get the stats and all the full story at our piece on the matter.
James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, were found dead in their home in Barron, Wisconsin, and their 13-year-old daughter Jayme is missing. Police aren’t suspecting her, and they don’t think she’s a runaway, sooo, I guess that leaves being kidnapped by the murders as a major option? According to eyewitnesses' stories, on the night of the alleged murder, there were shots and shouts from a child. Deputies searched the area around the family's home with drones and infrared equipment and talked to Jayme's friends and middle school classmates, hoping to develop some leads. An Amber Alert was issued. Jayme is described as 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes. May God grant her to be found alive and well!
Blasey Ford failed to take down Kavanaugh, so now some witches in Brooklyn are going to give it a go! Cause there’s nothing more intimidating than a bunch of single, tree-worshiping vegans casting spells! But, a bookstore in Brooklyn is planning a public event to put a hex on the newly-confirmed Justice next Saturday night. Catland Books, in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, says that Kavanaugh will be the focus of the event, but it will curse “all rapists and the patriarchy,” too. “We will be embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and its history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him,” the event description reads. These people need to find a real religion and get some lives.
That’s our news for today, before we sign off for good, let’s take a look at tomorrow’s opinion piece: “Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings Reveal the ‘Red Face’ of the ‘Ugly American,’” by Jeffrey Silverman. He says, “Being a judge is a long road; some US judges are elected, others are political appointments but each new Supreme Court nomination arouses public comment from predictable quarters. But no one expected the circus the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings to have turned into a three ring political circus. To cut to the chase, what transpired was a job interview and Kavanaugh blew it.” Now, I have to take issue with Silverman here. How does he figure Kavanaugh blew it? He showed himself to be a thinking, feeling, approachable human being, and now he’s on the bench. So, not following there. Towards the end of the piece he says, “We are all in for a very bumpy ride when the American public wakes up to the fact that the Soviet Union won the Cold War, by turning the US into everything the Soviet Union once was, and that all US allies have known this for a long time, but they didn't, and now can’t do anything about it.” Okay, I’m not going to say more—you’re just going to have to read the piece tomorrow to see how Silverman gets from Point A to Point B! It’s worth your time.
And that’ll do it once again for our USA Really daily podcast. Thanks for listening, thanks for reading, and keep it right here for all the news you need to know.
