Today’s comic by Jen Sorensen is The house is too damn big: Jackass: A Connecticut judge could impose penalties on InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Tuesday, after Jones aired a show where he punched a picture of an attorney representing Sandy Hook families and called the lawyer a “pimp.” [...] While sitting next to his own attorney, Norm Pattis, Jones accused Mattei without evidence of planting child porn on InfoWars’s servers. “Total war!” Jones said. “You want it, you got it! I’m not into kids like your Democratic Party, you cocksuckers! So get ready!” Ugh: Local organizations have struggled to dispose of 70 dead gray whales that have washed up along America’s West Coast. Now, a federal agency is turning to private property owners for help. The tragic die-off is the highest in 20 years. Scientists believe most of the massive animals are starving to death and speculate that it’s because food sources are vanishing in the dramatically warmer waters triggered by climate change. Officials from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are asking landowners to volunteer space to simply allow the mammals to decompose over time. Is anyone trying to stop them? Don't you wish those long summer days could last forever? An island in northern Norway is campaigning to do just that. With the Northern Hemisphere's summer solstice just around the corner on June 21, Sommarøy -- meaning «Summer Island» -- wants to swap its watches for flower garlands and declare itself the world's first time-free zone. Need a job? Reynolds Wrap is looking for someone to travel across the United States in search of the tastiest ribs.

Along the way, the CGO will be in charge of posting photos, grilling techniques and other multimedia on the company's website and social media channels. On today’s Kagro in the Morning show: It turns out there’s no slowdown in Congressional impeachment interest after all. Because what's the point of being in a powerless Congress? Today we fill in the gaps in that «take care» clause discussion, because it, too, argues for impeachment. x Embedded Content RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!)
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer rightfully charged his Republican counterparts Tuesday with «abdicating their responsibilities» to protect our elections by blocking election security legislation. But when it comes to initiating impeachment against Donald Trump, the guy who's trying to sell the presidency to the highest foreign bidder, Sen. Schumer is exhibiting a heavy dose of the urgency of whenever. “We don’t know all of it yet and the more new facts come out the better informed decision the American people and then the Congress can make on this issue,” Schumer told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday. «So I think the strategy of getting as much of the facts out and then months down the road making a decision on impeachment ... is the right strategy.” Schumer may have missed this, but the American public is currently being starved of facts, at least partly due to the absence of a formal impeachment proceeding and the investigative powers that inherently accompany it. But Schumer slouching away from anything that might smell like offense for Democrats is perfectly on brand. If you want to be truly infuriated, check out the recent reporting that Schumer counseled his caucus to back off from questioning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh too aggressively following the gripping testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Schumer reportedly argued that »there was no way...that Kavanaugh could survive," according to a new book from Ryan Grim, We’ve Got People: From Jesse Jackson to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the End of Big Money and the Rise of a Movement. (Full disclosure, I co-wrote the LGBTQ chapter of this book with Grim, but played no part in any of the other chapters.) Anyway, Grim writes that Schumer urged his caucus not to do anything that could somehow be twisted into making Kavanaugh look like the victim. And then somehow, Senate Democrats, under Schumer's leadership, managed to squander the opportunity handed to them by Blasey Ford’s gutsy testimony. When Trump put the presidency up for sale last week, he invited congressional Democrats to revisit their constitutional obligations. Some of them, like California swing district Rep. Katie Porter, did review those responsibilities and conclude that they could no longer continue to look the other way—even if it would be easier. But not Schumer. He’s rightfully blaming Republicans for making our elections vulnerable to foreign attacks while arguing that Democrats should let Trump’s open invitation for foreign interference slide. That’s a double standard if there ever was one.
