    They're too busy burning our cities and killing our police to watch any Netflix...

    FBI Raids Home Of ‘Netflix Star and Biden Surrogate’ For Allegedly Soliciting Sex From Minors

    The FBI reportedly raided the home of Jerry Harris, a Netflix star who appeared in a video with Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden where he encouraged young blacks to vote, for allegedly soliciting sex from minors.

    “The criminal investigation is based on allegations brought by 14-year-old twin brothers. In interviews with USA TODAY, the boys described a pattern of harassment, both online and at cheer competitions, that started when they were 13 and Harris was 19,” USA Today reported. “They said it continued for more than a year.”

    Harris, a celebrity cheerleader who was recently featured in Netflix’s “Cheer” docuseries, appeared in a video with Biden earlier this summer.

    In a piece titled “FBI Raids Home of Netflix Star and Biden Surrogate Over Underage Sex Allegation,” The Washington Free Beacon reported:
    It appears that following the publication of the Free Beacon’s report that the social media post was removed from Instagram.

    BREAKING: Supreme Court says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court justice who was as pioneering as she was brash, died on Friday, the court said. She was 87.

    Despite her diminutive stature, Ginsburg was larger than life, both on and off the bench. Viewed as a feminist icon, she broke countless barriers, never shying away from making controversial comments along the way — with everything from her high court opinions to her octogenarian workout routines earning her the nickname the "Notorious R.B.G." by her rabid fan base.

    Diagnosed with cancer four times, Ginsburg had had numerous health scares, including several recent hospitalizations. Her death will open a pivotal seat on the court less than 50 days before the election.

    Well, it's not a surprise. She was a fighter.

    From Kate's FB
    Today I'm mourning the loss of someone who meant so much to so many, and who *did* so much for all of us. Even for those who didn't appreciate the fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life's work was always focused on the greater good, the tide that lifts all ships. Because that's the point, right? We should fight the good fight regardless of the recognition or accolades--though they're always nice, always helpful to fuel the fire--and regardless of the obstacles thrown in our way. It's the right thing, the only thing, to do.

    She shouldn't have had to carry so much on her own, of course. Her loved ones should be allowed to mourn and celebrate and hold her full, complex, imperfect self without the world needing more from her and them. But we don't yet live in that better world, where people can live and thrive and focus on what brings them joy, instead of having to fight every day just to be treated as deserving of that life, that freedom, that joy. And that should be motivation enough to keep fighting, hearts forward.

    Now it's up to all of us still here on Earth to take up or continue that work. Like with all the towering but perfectly human figures who came before and laid the path: Frederick, Ida, Alice, Martin, Malcolm, Ruth, and so on....

    Think strategically. Use our anger for progress. Bring in the tide that lifts all ships. Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. May we all become notorious for our love and the ways it impacted others. May we build a world deserving of the people who fought to make it better for us all.

    Rest in power, RBG. We'll take it from here. I will pick up the torch. I will be the best lawyer possible for you.

    I was undecided on whether the President should nominate RBG's replacement right away. Well, Ted Cruz provides a convincing argument why he should.

    "We cannot have Election Day come and go with a four-four court," Cruz said during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. "A four-four court that is equally divided cannot decide anything. And I think we risk a constitutional crisis if we do not have a nine-justice Supreme Court, particularly when there is such a risk of a contested election."

    Ted Cruz urges Senate to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat, warning of 'constitutional crisis' on Election Day

    I just don't understand how he can get away with it. If he had robbed a 7 Eleven for $50 he'd be in jail for 4 years right now. Ruin a persons (child's) life. Get awarded for producing a porn movie.
