Man Paints 'Groomer' on Two Libraries
"Let me go to this. It says the left leaning website LGBTQ national appeared to be running interference for Sutherland and posted while there is no evidence of Sutherland and age 31 had sexual abuse abused children police discovered images of child pornography on his computer according to WTO. Sutherland's own owns child pornography was found with the child sized doll in his bed and worked in the elementary school until he was arrested for painting groomer on two libraries. Can't that be the reason enough to keep him away from kids? Now, I'm just wondering, I got to do my research a little more on this one because it seems like it says an LGBTQ left wing leaning site is running interference for him. So then it makes me wonder was he a conservative being nutty about this topic or was he actually a liberal trying to paint the picture that conservatives or spray painting nefarious things on libraries? Because I've seen both of these things happen. I've seen black people paint the N word on their locker and then say it was a white person come to find out he painted on his own locker. I wonder is this the same thing with his groomer situation? Because I've seen often oftentimes that these people that support the LGBTQ often are grooming themselves. And then I've also seen people who are so against it are the main ones doing nefarious things. And it's not just leftists that are doing this. I think it's mostly leftist. But there's Republicans that did it. It's a Republican in the state of Arizona. He was running for some office, and he in there, you know, you know, doing something he shouldn't have been doing in front of an elementary school. So to me, he'll creepy dude.

WTO car guy Mike Parrish says he was pleased to see this one as soon as he opened the rear doors. So we looked at the big Cadillac Escalade, not too long ago, and this is the smallest SUV they make. The XT four seats about 5 and you know what a tiny subcompact crossover. It's a lot of space in there. You can put adults up front and in the back and they'll have plenty of leg room, both places. And the hatchback to plenty of room for luggage or whatever your hauling around. It's about the average size for the class. There are some with larger cargo spaces in this class for about the same money, but then the passenger space is really hard to beat in this little Cadillac. How's your mileage? You get about 26 miles per gallon from the two liter turbo engine It does okay power wiser, some others in the market that's better, but it does okay, and if you do a lot of highway driving, you'll definitely see about 30, 31 miles per gallon if you're easy on the gas. What do you think about its appearance? Do you think it blends in a little too much with other cars or once you see that medicine grill do you realize, yes, this is a Cadillac. You kind of like really had to do something to kind of get their name out there and the looks really will get you into the door because they're very sporty and almost new age are looking compared to some of the slightly conservative style crossovers in this market. I'm seeing that you can maybe get out the door for closer to $40,000 than 50,000, although I'm not sure how many toys you get on that lower end. And you know what? I think that's where the Cadillac will shine. Those who are easy on the options list can definitely drive out for $45,000 or so. And get a nice vehicle, the one I had was about 55,012 $1000 of options. And it really didn't make sense for all that money for which you get for the money. So I think basically if you're easy on the options list, this is a fine vehicle. If not, look around that the others in the market that might give you just as much for maybe a little bit less. Let's finish up here with the pros and cons. What's the best thing about it? What is something that they need to work on? So for the size, the space inside is very tremendous. It's a big check mark if you want a small crossover that's easy to drive in this city, but you don't want to very big vehicle that's hard to park. This is your vehicle. And when the minus is the interior is nice, the seats are great. But a lot of the trimmings around it seem a little bit low dollar for a Cadillac. So you definitely want to weigh the pros and cons on what you're looking for and then choose from there. That's WTO's car guy. Mike parris on Skype.

This morning on WTO, the loudoun county school board will not release an independent report into the district's handling of two student sexual assaults. Several board members, including board chair, Ian siroc and voted last night against releasing this report, citing attorney client privilege in student privacy. Waving attorney client privilege is fraught with pitfalls, which is why it is done exceedingly rarely. Being open and transparent is incredibly important. But so is the rights of our students and staff to be able to communicate with legal counsel without it being made public. But other board members, including the Tiffany Politico, argued in favor of actually releasing this report. To continue to bury the truth in what occurred throughout the horrific sexual assaults in 2021, does not demonstrate justice, integrity, or service. It exudes self preservation. The motion to release the report failed, three 6 in the final vote, the board commissioned the report back in 2021 in response to two in school sexual assaults carried out by the same student. 10,000 laptops are going to low income people locally among every county.

Rich Grenell: All Engagements With China Are Worse Today
"Now what happens here I think that the communist Chinese are emboldened I think they're continuing to be extraordinarily aggressive I think we're sitting on our hands when it comes to building up our military to be able to match them in many respects I think they see Biden as a paper Tiger How do you say it Well look I'm never going to bet against the United States I feel very strongly that we do have superiority over them We have a committed intelligence class What we need to do is rid the few people who are in the intelligence community who are working for partisan gain and a colleague know this People within the intelligence community know who's leaking they know who is the problem We need to fix our problems so that when we have a situation that partisan actors are not trying to muck it up I want to fix our problems because you are exactly right The Chinese are coming back We know that they are on the offense I would suggest that when we allowed the Chinese to enter the WTO at the end of the Bill Clinton administration This whole vision that if we engaged with China that they would move towards democracy human rights the rule of law capitalism that was the hope when we let them into the WTO It's time that the world recognized that that was a failure that the engagement with the Chinese by all measures of things have gotten worse So we should isolate them We should launch an international effort to isolate them We should have done that immediately after COVID And I think that by not doing it by not isolating the Chinese we are going to regret it in a very short period of time

The Most Troubling Implications of Hunter's Foreign Business Dealings
"Sinister at play here. Which is it's very clear that as we dive into the Hunter Biden and the Joe Biden crime family run by Joe himself that American public policy, an American foreign policy. Was changed altered or edited because of the business dealings that Hunter Biden was engaged in. So it's not just that Hunter Biden did all these bad things. It's not that just Joe Biden told him to do it, but it's becoming more and more clear that the reason why these foreign countries and these foreign banks in these foreign energy companies and why the Chinese Communist Party was pumping money in is because they were getting something in return. Now we have laws against selling access for a reason. This is not just a crime that is impacted one person. It's not just like Joe and Hunter Biden went to the side of the street and stole a purse from somebody. This arguably impacts everybody. It impacts the entire free world. So when you have Joe and Hunter Biden going to China, receiving an extraordinary amount of money from China for no reason whatsoever. It begs the question, what decisions were then made as a result towards China because of that payoff? A Peter Schweitzer has a great one liner that he says the Chinese use a lot, which is bad mouth big help. That is how the Chinese describe Joe and Hunter Biden. They might talk a good game with China here and there. But they're a big help. You know, challenge their status in the World Health Organization. They never want, I mean, in the world, not just the World Health Organization, but in the WTO, the World Trade Organization, I should say. They don't want a full fledged investigation into the origins of the virus. They don't want sanctions on China. They might talk a good game here in there and they don't even do that very well, by the way. But it really does beg the question how much of this we're seeing unfolding in America is pay to play by our enemies in our adversaries. The New York Post
Bipartisan Senate Bill Wants to Break up Big Tech
"Not a fake news story is a bill being pushed by senator Klobuchar of Minnesota and grassley of Iowa that would lead to the breakup of big tech. Now I'm very ambivalent about big tech. I want an American national security representative in every board meeting. I want to know what they're doing and what they're making. I'm not sure we need to break them up. You are a national security specialist. What do you think about this bill? Well, look, I wrote about this in The Wall Street Journal about ten days ago. And I understand people are based are very angry at big tech companies. And they've got good reason to with censorship and privacy issues, the fact that the president Trump was taken off some of the social media platforms and yet terrorists and autocrats are left on. That's terrible. We need to deal with it. But we're on the verge of this Klobuchar bell of giving the Chinese Communist Party a huge gap. I mean, they can't believe it. They're watching us.

Trade organization temporarily wave paneriai pure rights such that kobe nineteen production distribution worldwide could be accelerated. The trump administration oppose the waiver in early may the biden administration announced. He would support a waiver though opposed by and others but supported by one hundred one hundred sixty four world trade member organizations as well as supported by over one hundred house. Democrats in per survey polling approximately sixty percent of likely voters. The world's tripped up program which formally is term trade related aspects of intellectual property rights but the world trade organization program strictly enforces patent monopolies for a minimum of twenty years and the mind administration's decision was clearly in response to the overwhelming evidence that comparatively the global south was being vaccinated at dramatically slower rates for example as a month ago eighty percent of vaccines had gone to those in high or upper income countries. While only zero point two percent had gone to those in low income countries. Today the news is that president bind will announce the administration will purchase another five hundred million vaccines in addition to eighty million already purchased to be distributed over the next year or two one hundred countries.

This decision is by the biden administration has really historic. Actually we've never seen anything like it. Usually our government here in the us through the united states trade representative is pushing low and middle income countries to adopt patent standards..

No no serum hopes to soon be churning out a hundred million doses per month of this one vaccine on top of all the other vaccines they're still producing here. The oxford astra zeneca. Formula is particularly attractive to india and other low and middle income countries. Because it needs just regular refrigeration not subzero temperatures. This is for storage area.

Yeah, to see if you're looking at the risks that they're out there.

Yeah, when it comes to the new but an administration as you say, perhaps not a potential reset exactly on January, 20 do you expect, though, that we will see a guess a better relationship than what we had seen under the Trump administration. Well, I think it would be more predictable, which I think is, you know, T China, even if it's still quite company, confrontational in terms of having different objectives and trying to you know they're trying to achieve or modify those that's still going to be the case, but at least it will be done in a way that not through Twitter and 31 arm of the government.

It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe

It's a weird year. And i feel like we've been talking a lot about the atp and obviously the atp finals are happening. So i am happy to start by out talking about the wpa and some of these awards all right. let's go. let's let's that. I that's a good idea let's go to That'd be the w. t. a. Does not unlike the wto does not have a finals or twenty twenty. Unfortunately that's An offshoot of having events in china where international sporting events were cancelled months ago. So the vendor playing as we speak in london and there is no there is no comparable women's event. So let's say yeah let's do that. Let's start with the women season over. Why don't we hand out some awards. We genda pivot to london. Mvp award is always a bit strange. But if we're going to give player of the year honors. I feel like the player has to have won a major. Do you agree with that. Yes definitely agree with that. But this year of course We had one less. And i think that i would also classify the majors in two creek corona and post corona. I would almost give a little bit more weight or just feel like there's more discussion for all the majors. That are not the train open you know. Of course that was when all was normal and before all this happened But i know you. You went to your pace in your mailbox but are you. Who's your pick. i think it. It sounds sounds a little. I think you've got to say that the so you can is your twenty twenty. Mvp she won a major and got to the final of another If we play this game sometime if your life depended on a player Would she be your pick and the answer is is probably not and do i think in a head to head match. There are players who are superior. If if she and i o miyasaka played ten times i would think naomi osaka with the majority of those matches. But yeah in this straight year. But i think you're right. There was no wimbledon. There there was a us open but it did not feature you know six top ten players including ash barty the number one player including simona halep included the defending champion and that was That was one sock than we had. The french open which also did not feature ash party. Who is the defending champion. It did not feature. Naomi osaka the australian open before corona had the most flush field. So you can in one that and she reached the final of the french open so she is the only player to have won a major and got into the final of another and in this stranger. It's probably appropriate. We have a strange choice but sonya sofia kenyon is my Twenty twenty mvp will by you. I hear you on that. And i think those are all good points. I in you know so that we aren't agreeing here on all of these under some Interest to this conversation. I'm going to take a different pic. i'm gonna go with naomi osaka and i think that In speaking about mvp sort of in the Like a of a lot of awards that are giving out at this time of the year including essays own award sportsperson of the year. It's not just about what's happening on the court. It's just not about results per se about other things that This player has done. So i think that For me. I think niamey osaka. Of course like you said kennan if you're just talking about reaching a final winning final In a major. She's done that but osaka has not only one. But also use her platform and she's spoken up and she's gone beyond the court and i think that you know if we're talking if you're looking at that list of choices here And you check the box with a major win in for me. You check the box with all the other outside stuff off the court that she's done so that's my pick.
