Woman issued $115 fine for breastfeeding in the back of her own SUV

Published

A New York woman was issued a $115 fine for breastfeeding in a car, reports WABC-TV.

Guillermina Rodriguez was trying to feed her 3-month-old daughter while stuck in a massive traffic jam in Manhattan.

“I’m like almost crying because she’s crying, and all I want to do is pull over so I can tend to her,” Rodriguez told WABC-TV.

As she tried to tend to her daughter, an officer and a tow truck operator attempted to move her vehicle. She honked to make them stop. They did not tow the car, but they did give her a ticket. She tried to explain herself but it didn’t work.

“I showed him the baby and obviously my breast,” she said. “I’m like, ‘I’m breast-feeding the baby.’ He looks and then he just puts the ticket down, and he walks away.”

She reported the incident to a breastfeeding rights group, whose spokeswoman denounced the officer’s actions.

“As a society, we need to hear babies crying and answer them. And I don’t think she deserves a ticket for that,” La Leche League spokesperson Laura Beth Gilman told WABC-TV.

“I think she deserves understanding, and the police officer should have said, ‘Sure, I’ll give you a couple of minutes.”

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.

Trump says if GOP paid for Steele dossier ‘there’d be hell to pay’ — Republicans paid for half of it

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.

In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."

......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!
