Report: MLB fines Padres' Kinsler for on-field profanity after HR Simon Sharkey-Gotlieb 10 hrs ago © Denis Poroy / Getty Images Sport / Getty Major League Baseball fined San Diego Padres second baseman Ian Kinsler for using profane language on the field after hitting a home run Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, sources told Scott Miller of Bleacher Report. It's believed he was fined between $7,500 and $10,000, sources told Miller. Kinsler launched the game-winning three-run homer Thursday and let out what looked to be a barrage of F-bombs upon crossing home plate. It appeared as though he was directing the cursing at Padres fans, though Kinsler denied this was ...

Many libertarians worry that President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton has taken on the role that Dick Cheney held during the George W. Bush administration. Mr. Cheney was seen as the “real” president when it came to foreign policy. Mr. Bolton has become Mr. Trump’s Cheney. Liberty-minded Americans agree with the rhetoric of Mr. Trump that we need better relations with Russia and to end the war in Afghanistan, while staying out of civil wars like the one in Syria. Somehow, Mr. Bolton has undermined Mr. Trump’s rhetoric and has slow-walked the president’s stated goal of dialing back America being everywhere all the time. One area one ...

The outspoken 38-year-old has been a visible and vocal ...

Bears’ kicker competition gets off to laughable start Matt Johnson, Sportsnaut 13 hrs ago © Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports The Chicago Bears were poised for an incredible postseason run, then Cody Parkey missed a 43-yard, game-winning field goal and Chicago’s season came to an end. Head coach Matt Nagy brought in eight kickers for rookie camp to find Parkey’s replacement and immediately wanted to challenge them out of the gate. Instead, Chicago’s first session of the kicking competition got off to an ironic and laughable start. twitter.com/adamjahns/status/1124416651410182144 The shanks: Six different attempts to do what Parkey couldn’t, with far ...

Anderson celebrated by throwing his bat back towards his dugout. The next time Anderson stepped to the plate Keller threw a fastball at him. The benches emptied. Keller and Anderson were ejected, as was White Sox manager Rick Renteria. Why Anderson was ejected was something of a mystery. He did not charge the mound. He did not throw a punch and he did not shove anyone or anything. At ...

VIDEO: Kyle Schwarber Charges Umpire After Being Called Out on Check-Swing to End Cubs Game Mark Powell 17 hrs ago ​​Kyle Schwarber, there's a likely suspension coming your way. After the ​Cubs slugger was called out on a check-swing to end another Chicago defeat, he charged third-base umpire Gabe Morales and was promptly thrown out...after the game was already over. twitter.com/BtBScore/status/1117190773383077889 Surely there's room for reasonable discourse between umpires and players over a call or two, but this level of pure madness is never okay, as Morales was fearful Schwarber would resort to violence given his rash reaction.

A Few Initial Thoughts About the First Round of the Ukrainian Presidential Election
Post Date: 2019-04-07 08:42:14 by Ada

The first round of the Presidential election in the Ukraine took place on April Fool’s Day and it could be tempting to dismiss it all like a big farce which, of course, it was, but, we should not overlook the fact that some very interesting and important events have just taken place. I won’t discuss them all right now, there will be plenty of time for that in the future. For now I will only focus on those elements of a much bigger picture which seem most critical to me. These elements are: The Nazis suffered a crushing defeat in this election. By “Nazis” I primarily mean their main figurehead – Petro Poroshenko (the rest of the “minor Nazis” did so ...

Similar revelations about other banks and offshore tax-evasion schemes — such as those contained in the Panama Papers — led to global protests and even the resignations of some world leaders Israel’s three largest banks — Hapoalim Bank, Leumi Bank and Mizrahi Tefahot Bank — have all been ordered to pay record fines, which collectively are set to total over $1 billion, to the U.S. government after the banks were found to have actively colluded with thousands of wealthy Americans in massive tax-evasion schemes. The scandal, though it has been reported on in Israeli media, has garnered little attention in the United States. The media black-out has been so surprising ...

Although the world is pretty kiked right now, there’s still stuff here that hasn’t been ruined by the Jews, such as dogs. Dogs are still cool. New York Post: A stray dog tagged along with a team of mountaineers, following them up to the top of the 23,389-foot peak in Nepal’s Himalayas – a first in the canine world. Mera, a 45-pound Nepalese mutt thought to be a cross between a Tibetan mastiff and a Himalayan sheepdog, became the first dog ever to reach the summit of Baruntse on Nov. 9 last year, according to Outside magazine. Billi Bierling of the Himalayan Database, an organization that documents climbing expeditions in Nepal, told the magazine that Mera’s ...

FBI-CIA Collaboration Reveals Blatant Illegitimacy of Guantánamo Trials

Earlier last month, lawyers for Moath Hamza Ahmed al-Alwi, a Yemeni citizen who’s been detained in Guantánamo since January 16, 2002, petitioned the Supreme Court to review his case. His legal team argues that the US government lacks the authority to detain al-Alwi under the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force and that indefinite detention is illegal. Previously, the district and circuit courts denied al-Alwi’s habeas petition, which is why his lawyers are going to the Supreme Court. Al-Alwi’s case is a reminder of Guantánamo’s reality: The military commissions system is a kangaroo court designed to cover-up CIA torture while dozens of men remain ...

General Mattis has turned the military into a nonstop transsexual orgy which has been described as a “flesh pit” by observers. As such, he rarely pops his head up to comment on anything anymore, as he’s too goofed out on poppers to think straight let alone speak in coherent sentences. AP: Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Saturday took aim at Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of trying to “muck around” in the U.S. midterm elections, of duplicity in arms control and of acting irresponsibly in last weekend’s naval confrontation with Ukraine. In remarks at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California, Mattis said the U.S.-Russian ...

In Federal Courts, the Worst Rise to the Top

A New York City federal jury has spoken, and its message is ominous: federal prosecutors are empowered to criminalize actions for which there is no statutory prohibition. To put it another way, the government has pulled criminal charges out of thin air – and journalists are cheering. The news media outlets are framing this as a “college basketball corruption case,” but that is a misnomer, to put it mildly, which I will explain later. First, the news as is being reported on the CBS Sports website : NEW YORK — All three defendants in the first college basketball corruption trial were found guilty of conspiracy to commit wire fraud on Wednesday. A jury found James Gatto ...
