Thousands protest ‘uptight’ Utah laws with underwear run

Published

on

About 3,000 scantily-clad people took to the streets of Salt Lake City Saturday to protest conservative laws in Utah with a “Undie Run” event.

The demonstration began near the Mormon church headquarters and continued about two miles towards the Utah State Capitol.

Organizers were forced to impose a dress code to comply with Utah indecency laws. Nudity, thongs, G-strings, see-through underwear, and skin-tight underwear for men were all prohibited. After protesters stripped down, they were given the chance to donate their clothes to the homeless. Donations of canned food were also accepted.

Participants were encouraged to bring signs and write messages on their bodies to call attention to specific causes. Many had messages in support of marriage equality.

The event also set a goal of registering 3,000 new voters, according to the Utah Undie Run website.

Jersey City shooting a potential act of domestic terrorism: US prosecutor

Published

on

A recent shooting at a kosher deli in a New York suburb was fueled by "anti-Semitism" and a hatred of police, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Thursday.

"We believe the suspects held views that reflected hatred of Jewish people as well as hatred of law enforcement officers," he told journalists.

Authorities had previously stopped short of characterizing Tuesday's firefight, which left six people including two suspects dead, in Jersey City as motivated by anti-Semitism.

On Thursday Grewal also said authorities had evidence that the suspects had expressed interest in the fringe Black Hebrew Israelite movement, which has voiced hostility toward Jewish people.

CNN’s Jake Tapper does line-by-line fact check of Jim Jordan’s nonstop misleading statements during impeachment hearing

Published

Host Jake Tapper did a special web fact-check for CNN.com where he looked line-by-line into Rep. Jim Jordan's (R-OH) claims about the impeachment proceedings.

He had four specific talking points that were disingenuous and outright false.

1. Jordan: "There was no quid pro quo in the transcript"

There absolutely was evidence in the summary of the transcript. Tapper began by explaining that Americans still haven't seen the full transcript or a recording of the July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"If you read the summary of the transcript it clearly shows that after a discussion of U.S. military support for Ukraine, President Trump said the relationship is not 'reciprocal' and he asks Zelensky for 'a favor,'" Tapper said. "The favor? To investigate a conspiracy theory into the 2016 election and later in the call he says, 'one other thing,' he wants Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter."

Fox’s Ingraham attacks Greta Thunberg’s selection as Time’s Person of the Year: Nunes would be a better choice

Published

Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guest Raymond Arroyo, the lead anchor of the news division for Eternal Word Television Network, criticized Time magazine’s selection of teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg as its 2019 “Person of the Year” Wednesday evening.

Ingraham began the segment mocking the teen with autism by lamenting that Time had chosen Thunberg “in spite of its own reader poll,” in which the Hong Kong democracy protesters had received the most votes. Ingraham later said that her second choice for “Person of the Year” would have been “the House Intel members,” including Devin Nunes, who she described as unfairly “maligned.”
