Ann Coulter Says God Punished Houston Over Their Lesbian Mayor

Ann Coulter is on an anti-lgbtq, ignorant hate spree again, for a change.

The far right political commentator said that Hurricane Harvey is God’s response to Houston electing a Lesbian mayor, and not the result of Climate Change, the product of mankind’s greed and irresponsible behaviour with the environment.

Coulter was referring to Annise Parker, the first openly lesbian individual to be mayor in Houston until stepping down in 2016.

In a twitter tweet, she said:

Ann, who has said in the past that “gay marriage is not a right” and gay men who have sex should  “feel guilty about it.” also refuses to believe in the overwhelming, tangible evidence by scientists that proves that climate change is very real.

Despite what some governments in support of coal mining and fracking say about global warming, there is a a global scientific consensus that humans are altering the climate by pouring greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

In addition to rising global temperatures, climatologists believe more intense weather patterns – from stronger storms to more frequent droughts – are potential consequences.

Warmer air and water could feed the size and wetness of hurricanes.

RT (Russia Today) Banned from Facebook Until After Trump’s Inaguration

The Russian Corporate Media Giant, RT News, reported that Facebook banned them from posting anything but plain text on their page until after Trump’s inaguration

The ban, according to Facebook, will last until Saturday 10:55pm Moscow time and will extend across US president-elect Trump’s inauguration.

The timing of the ban means that RT won’t be able to broadcast President-elect Trump’s inauguration live on their Facebook page.

RT’s Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said she wasn’t surprised that RT had been blocked from posting on Facebook following a complaint from Current Time TV (a part of Radio Liberty, financed by the US Department of State.)

“I’m not surprised. If the Department of State could block oxygen to us, they would do it”, she told RIA Novosti.

“While Facebook is a powerful distributor of live-streams it is struggling with the rights ramifications. RT will continue text-only posts to Facebook until the issue is resolved.”

There is no reason from our side as to why RT should have not been able to freely transmit our signal via their own FB page. In fact, I do not believe that AP would even be able to physically restrict client’s [sic] transmissions on their own Facebook pages. In addition, the footage was our own and the restrictions did not mention anything out of the ordinary […] In short, it must have been an issue on [Facebook’s] end,” AP Editorial Liaison representative Phoebe Paulus said in an email.

Hull, United Kingdom — A female shop owner was having her morning cuppa when a robber, armed with a seven-inch-blade knife demanded the cash from the till.

 “I was just sitting there having my cup of tea when he came in holding this seven-inch kitchen knife.” Mrs Sangha said.
The attacker hung around the Sangha Newsagents Shop in Beverley Road, Hull for several minutes before entering and demanding cash from the till.

“He told me to give him all the money but I was relaxed. I told him I was having a cup of tea. He demanded I put it down and give him the money. She added.

“I said ‘OK’ and picked up the craft knife and waved it at him. I wouldn’t have hurt him but it was enough to scare him. He started shaking and then he ran off.”

At Hull Crown Court, the jury took just a few hours to find Gleeson guilty of attempted robbery and possession of a knife following a trial last week. On Friday, Gleeson was jailed for five years.

The jury had been shown CCTV footage of Gleeson, 35, before the robbery which he admitted was him but denied images of a man running from the scene afterwards were him. The Hull Mail reports.
