Frat bros go camping in California — and completely trash beautiful national forest land

Published

on

In yet another sad story of careless buffoons ruining nature, it seems some students from the University of Oregon recently left gigantic piles of trash on the shores of Lake Shasta in Northern California, which is part of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.

Local news station KVAL 13 reports that the University of Oregon is investigating whether any of its students are responsible for leaving copious amounts of trash at the lake — including plastic furniture, clothing, beer bottles, coolers and even perfectly new tents.

It’s pretty clear at this point that some University of Oregon students were involved here since there were University of Oregon bags found among the trash, as well as a cooler with the initials for fraternity Lambda Chi Alpha that had the phrase “DO YOU WANNA DO SOME BLOW MAN?” written on the side. Here’s another photo showing the mess that was left behind:

The National Lambda Chi Alpha organization said that it was also investigating the incident, which it said was “absolutely unacceptable,” while also offering “our deepest apologies for any destruction of Lake Shasta resort and the surrounding environment.”

President Donald Trump has cleared out all the constraints in his White House, which he's running much like the Trump Organization.

The president has chased away four national security advisers, three chiefs of staff, three directors of oval office operations and five communications directors -- an unprecedented amount of turnover for a modern president — and finds himself surrounded by compliant staffers and aides, reported Politico.

“It is a government of one in the same way in which the Trump Organization was a company of one,” said one former senior administration official.

Whistleblower forced to come forward because intel officials consider Trump a ‘security risk’: CNN’s Avlon

Published

on

Addressing a bombshell report from the Washington Post that President Donald Trump made a "promise" to an unidentified world leader that "prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community," CNN's John Avlon said it was a sign intel officials regard the president as a "security risk."

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Avlon noted that the whistleblower is a Trump appointee which makes formal complaint all that much more alarming.

"A Trump appointee thinks this is of such concern that Congress needs to know," Berman began. "The question is: what was the promise, to whom, and what does it say about the president's notion of intelligence?"

How the tyrant in the White House just took our government to a new depth of depravity

Published

on

To me, it feels ice-tinglingly creepy that the U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu in Washington wants to bring criminal charges against former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

The charge, basically that McCabe lied about a leak to a reporter, seems to come nowhere near close to supporting a criminal charge after 18 months of investigation, an expired grand jury and public humiliation for McCabe in firing him two days short of his professional resignation, killing off his pension. It seems that even a grand jury has decided not to react to the prosecution’s call for indictment.

But that’s not what’s wrong here. It is the White House squeezing the Justice Department to do its political bidding.
