    ICYMI:
    This is true.

    hat tip- BJ

    The city’s police-officers union is cracking down on the number of “get out of jail free” courtesy cards distributed to cops to give to family and friends.

    Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association boss Pat Lynch slashed the maximum number of cards that could be issued to current cops from 30 to 20, and to retirees from 20 to 10, sources told The Post.

    The cards are often used to wiggle out of minor trouble such as speeding tickets, the theory being that presenting one suggests you know someone in the NYPD.

      I watched a Judge Judy episode where a young white woman whose dad was a retired LA police officer and was given a speeding ticket by an active police officer. She told the officer, “Do you know my dad”?, “He’s officer so-and-so”. He told her, yes then proceeded to write her a ticket. She called her dad and asked the officer to speak to her dad. He refused. She wrote a scathing letter that was put in his employment file so he sued her for false statements. Needless to say, Judge Judy slammed her and her daddy who had the nerve to show up in court on television. The officer won and donated the money to charity.

    I was listening to NPR yesterday as I was driving around town and the topic was how in one area of Long Beach, CA where goods come into the port, they have completely eliminated longshoremen and have gone 100% automated. They said longshoremen make six figures, around $150K. If all the ports go fully automated that’s a lot of good paying jobs down the tubes. I have only met or know of a few longshoremen. It is back breaking work with a good union. The unions are playing hard ball with the port that might make it difficult for the other ports to automate.

    Has anyone heard anything about this?

    Between the complicit GOP, the weak MSM and the propaganda Rightwing media, there are so many conspiracy theories going around that we can hardly keep them straight. We have to stay focussed on flipping Congress and pushing back when we can on the nonsense. Yes. We. Can.
    p.s. Go Mueller!!

    Trump said he would love to speak to Robert Mueller, he is looking forward to doing so and he will do so under oath. B.S. Most of us know that Trump is a pathological liar.

    I admit…I’m still at the point of the raised eyebrow at Flynn:
    1. taking a meeting with the FBI – WITHOUT A LAWYER
    2. NOT TELLING ANYONE IN THE WHITE HOUSE ABOUT IT!

    Gates has gotten himself a REAL D.C. LAWYER. One, who earned his chops on Watergate.
    Someone who is going to tell him – SAVE YOURSELF. – In Washington speak, of course.
    He saw who showed up to his legal fundraiser – nobody.

    The German government has put plans on hold to upgrade German-made tanks used by Turkey amid a public outcry over a Turkish offensive in northern Syria.

    Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said the decision would be taken once a new coalition government had been formed.

    Pictures have been circulating in the German media of Leopard tanks being used by Turkish forces in their campaign against Kurdish forces.

    Turkish-led forces began their assault in Syria’s north-west on Saturday.
