Black Trump fanatics are out of control. First they are beating up elderly Asians, now they are dognapping Lady Gaga’s French bulldogs as retribution for Gaga singing at Biden’s inauguration. From the Daily Mail:

FBI investigates whether the dognapping of Lady Gaga’s bulldogs was politically motivated because she sang at Biden’s inauguration

The FBI is reportedly probing whether the dognapping of Lady Gaga’s bulldogs was politically motivated

Source claimed it could be politically motivated since she sang at President Joe Biden’s inauguration

The revelation that Gaga’s dogs could have been ‘stolen for ransom’ comes just hours after horrifying video showed the moment her dog’s walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot in the chest in Los Angeles on Wednesday night

It’s currently unclear whether Gaga’s dogs were specifically targeted, but French bulldogs are in high demand and can sell for as much as $10,000 if they have pedigree lineage

Gaga, 34, is offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of Gustav and Koji ‘no questions asked’

By VALERIE EDWARDS and LUKE KENTON FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

French bulldogs are for people like Lady Gaga who aren’t quite committed enough to buy English bulldogs. They want to go whole hog and be English bulldog owners, but then they pay attention to their accountants telling them to compromise and settle for French bulldogs.

As a child, the future singer scored high enough on the SAT that she was invited to the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. Other attendees include Terrence Tao, Sergey Brin, Mark Zuckerberg, Andrew Yang, and Ronan Farrow.

From Entertainment Tonight Canada:

Police describe the suspects as “a male Black, 20-25 years of age, blond dreadlocks, wearing a black hoodie, and armed with a semi-automatic handgun” and the second suspect as “a male Black, 20-25 years of age, wearing dark clothing.”

The last time my wife and I were in this neighborhood in West Hollywood, it seemed safe, but then a huge black homeless guy on a bicycle started hassling her for money, so we had to get out fast.

Having had my peace and quiet interrupted by semi-trained mutts howling hour after hour a few yards from my windows I loathe the idea of urban dog-owning….emotionally incontinent idiots taking loud pack animals and imprisoning them in small spaces often alone.

    You are correct. However, dog ownership is in a category of mistakes which once committed, a person becomes almost religious in their defense. Other examples include motorcycle riding, which is worse in every way except they don't poop, and tattoos which are almostly perfectly idiotic (but very quiet).

    So, don't bother arguing with such people.

    UT-Austin won’t require SAT or ACT scores for 2022 applications due to COVID-19

    By KATE MCGEE
    Thursday, February 25, 2021 6:09PM

    …The flagship university is the latest among schools across the country to extend the temporary hold on the traditional application requirement. Earlier this year, multiple Ivy League universities and others had extended their “test-optional” policies through 2022.

    In Texas, Rice University in Houston made a similar announcement. The University of Houston System also said it would remain test-optional through fall 2022 and would consider making the change permanent. Baylor University also made the standardized tests optional through fall 2023 and said it will reevaluate the policy for future years. Texas A&M University has also extended its policy to 2022 and anticipates 2023 will be test optional as well.

    Upon hearing that her bulldogs had been dog-napped and her dogwalker shot, Gaga immediately announced that she would pay $500,000 to the nappers “no questions asked” if returned.

    As for the 'no questions' part, well - she is not the police and asking questions is not her job in any case. Getting her dogs back doesn't mean that police would drop shooting investigation. (one would hope)

    It’s funny how some dog breeds reflect their countries of origin. Just briefly from one dog site:

    French Bulldog vs English Bulldog: Temperament

    The French and English Bulldog is friendly, loyal, and intelligent, but that is where the temperament similarities end.

    French Bulldogs are fun-loving, sneaky lap dogs.

    They like to cuddle and play but can be stubborn and independent.

    We had bulldogs when I was kid. One was the best guard-dog ever.
    If some-one he didn't know came into a room the dog would go and sit by the door. When they got up to go, the dog would stand up and smile.
    The visitor would sit down, so would the dog.
    Repeat as necessary.
    Breaking into our house was easy. Breaking out, not so much.

  11. While it’s a great angle for a story, keep in mind that the DM cribbed this from The Sun, so the story is mostly complete fiction. The LAPD asked the FBI for help on the forensics, as is common, and the rest is just invented by the reporter’s imagination.

    An FBI spokesperson told The Sun: “While the Bureau provides resources if/where requested to our local partners, I would refer you to LAPD for comment as they are leading this investigation.”

    The whole story is built around this nothing quote – everything else is just speculation. It’s possible that a British reporter really is clueless enough to believe that it could have been Trump supporters even though they were black.

  16. I had trouble finding any description of the race of the suspects from the major stories about this case. Not until the police release the information do we learn anything about race. So obviously the dogwalker knew, but wanted to push a narrative instead. But then when it comes to talking to the police they have to tell the truth or risk getting into trouble. Politically motivated celebrities like Lady Gaga and the people surrounding them are really despicable. Does anyone actually believe the two black suspects were upset about Gaga’s inauguration performance? Were they also wearing maga hats and carrying bleach? These people are sick and dangerous.

  17. Lady Gaga is offering $500,000 for the safe return of her animals, but nothing for her employee who was shot.

I saw a video of the incident on TMZ and the dog walker put up a struggle and the crime was not that quick. Was a call first placed after the gun shot? If the call went in when the dog walker yelled for help some units could have been en route from various directions and noticed the car speeding away, even a half-mile or a mile away. Perps who just shot a guy in the chest don’t play it cool for quite a while afterwards.

    Even if the resident in the home in front of which the attack took place had his phone in his hand, it would take a few minutes to get through answer the questions and the dispatcher to send available cars.

    Kitty Genoese Attack occurred 2/30 3 AM neighbors were sound asleep. It was cold windows closed. It takes a while to wake up and realize somethings happening.
    NYSlimes and rest of the media just blamed the murder on her White neighbors callously ignoring the murder instead of ever mentioning a black man murdered her.

I don’t like the woman personally but she did a bang up job singing the National Anthem at “Honest Joe’s” inauguration after they stole the “selection.” French Bulldogs are all the rage because they are a cute breed and they are much healthier than the English Bulldog. I went with the American bulldog, a working breed, a guard dog, a companion, and a helluva breed. I doubt those guys would have thought about trying to kidnap an American bulldog, their nails alone can rip flesh when they are in attack mode much less the teeth. I thought about getting a Frenchie or a Boston Terrier but I already have 4 critters and that is enuff for now.

    Capitol will stay in “Green Zone” mode a bit longer, possibly until V-Day Afghanistan, who knows.

    And Mike Tyson is unhappy.

    As troop withdrawal nears, police say militias aim to blow up Capitol, ‘kill as many members as possible’ during Biden’s SOTU

    “We know that members of the militia groups that were present on January 6 have stated their desire that they want to blow up the Capitol and kill as many members as possible with a direct nexus to the State of the Union,” acting Capitol Police chief Yogananda Pittman said Thursday in testimony to a House subcommittee.

    Pittman argued that in light of the alleged online chatter about a new attack, it’s only prudent to maintain an “enhanced and robust security posture until we address those vulnerabilities going forward.” That could mean a longer deployment of National Guard troops in the nation’s capital than previously planned.

    Another complication with Pittman’s latest warning is that US presidents don’t typically give a State of the Union speech during their first year in office. Like Trump did in 2017, Biden may give a speech to a joint session of Congress, rather than a State of the Union.

    Like every other thing this foul human does, acquiring French as opposed to English Bulldogs (or any type of dog for that matter) was a calculated action designed to maximize her influence and brand in regards to trend, fashion, status, and all other unmentioned pathological goals sought out by the purest narcissistic attention seeking ghouls.

    Yet Lady GaGa is not all that talented, note for note, compared to thousands of other musicians her age who poured out of music conservatories and college music departments, flooding YouTube with their original oeuvres. So I guess the high IQ thing helped her network herself into the business without having to blow anyone. She was a contemporary of Taylor Swift who was way more prolific and visually appealing, but then Swift was another child prodigy with a rich stockbroker father and a devoted stage mother. I guess the age of the working class pop star rising from working class roots, like Credence Clearwater Revival and Bruce Springsteen is over.

    There is actually an under ground trade in kidnapped dogs , Maryland is one of the hotspots for this . The dogs are grabbed to be sold to medical and pharmaceutical companies that buy them no questions asked at regular sales held I believe in Missouri . I can't find the original article but I do remember reading it in Harpers's Magazine in abt 2001 . As I recall the preferred dog sizes were med. to large . From Wiki : Dognapping is the crime of taking a dog from its owner. The word is derived from the term kidnapping.

    Historically in the United States, dogs had been stolen and sold on for medical research, but the introduction of the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 reduced these occurrences. The profit available to dognappers varies based upon the value of the dog or the amount that its original owners are willing to pay as ransom. Dog organizations recommend the microchipping of dogs in order to facilitate an animal's return to its rightful owners.
    Despite the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 the Harper's article claimed there was still a thriving market in the early 2000's .

  60. Anyone who pays 10 grand for a dog needs to have their head examined. French bulldogs have become the latest fashionable dog to have lately. You can acquire a French bulldog for hundreds of dollars and not thousands, don’t fall for the bullshit. I remember back in the Eighties when those wrinkled dogs from China, the Shar Pei was the “in” dog to have and they were charging outlandish prices for those dogs as well. Now, you never see them and probably would have a hard time selling one for a few hundred bucks with papers. Hell, you probably would have a hard time giving one away in 2021. Honestly, a French bulldog is very similar in appearance to a Boston Terrier, sure there are differences but if you cannot afford a Frenchie and don’t want to be ripped off, go with the Boston Terrier. English Bulldogs? Major trouble, not worth the trouble. You will spend more on vet bills than the cost of the dog, which like the French bulldog is way overpriced most of the time.

  72. The question now is, do they try to fence the dogs for a few thousand or brazenly demand a ransom for half a mil or more.

    In 20 combined seasons of 5-0 and Mannix I don’t recall a single dognapping episode, but this script practically writes itself, especially with a quirky show-biz celebrity owner. McGarrett sternly warns Gaga that her dogs are as good as dead if she agrees to pay the ransom — then on cue the phone rings and they do a rack focus shot between the actors and the phone looming in the foreground. Now try to trace the call!

    Eventually it turns out to be an inside job with the dog walker. “Go ahead, shoot me a couple more times, make it look good.” “OK, man.”

    There was a 5-0 where a struggling actor arranged for a couple of his shady friends to stage a fake kidnapping of himself. After a few days of generating a lot of publicity and hopefully helping out his flagging career, he was to be released unharmed and his friends disappear

    His shady friends then got the idea of demanding a ransom of tens of thousands for his release. Then it looked like they would have to kill the actor as he would no doubt turn them in.

    The fake kidnapping almost went terminally bad for the actor, but McGarret rescues him in the end.

    I'd seriously doubt its the case here, but a dog walker could attempt to ingratiate himself with a wealthy dog owner by stopping a dognapping attempt.

    He's lucky to be alive. He should of just let the dogs go.

    I imagine Gaga's gonna make sure the guy's well taken care of.

And, we have an attractive middle aged lady who walks dogs for three other neighbors and a few clients in the nearby high end development. Rain or shine or snow, she is walking the poochies. One dog, now deceased, was a bull mastif.

    There is actually an under ground trade in kidnapped dogs , Maryland is one of the hotspots for this . The dogs are grabbed to be sold to medical and pharmaceutical companies that buy them no questions asked at regular sales held I believe in Missouri . I can’t find the original article but I do remember reading it in Harpers’s Magazine in abt 2001 . As I recall the preferred dog sizes were med. to large . From Wiki : Dognapping is the crime of taking a dog from its owner. The word is derived from the term kidnapping.

    Historically in the United States, dogs had been stolen and sold on for medical research, but the introduction of the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 reduced these occurrences. The profit available to dognappers varies based upon the value of the dog or the amount that its original owners are willing to pay as ransom. Dog organizations recommend the microchipping of dogs in order to facilitate an animal’s return to its rightful owners.
    Despite the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 the Harper’s article claimed there was still a thriving market in the early 2000’s .

  80. I’ve never met a French Bulldog I didn’t get along with. They’re very urban dogs: stylish and funny, and requiring no more exercise than a twice-daily strut around the block. Sadly, they’re also genetic freaks (dwarves, really), tend to need a lot of medical care, and often don’t have long lives.

I’ll never forget walking down Figueroa at Olympic in 2010 or 11 & seeing this crazy unkempt old black man jumping into the street waving his arms around begging both cars and passers by for anything they’d give him.

    The next day i saw him literally passed out cold on the sidewalk right at Figueroa by the big sign adjacent to LA Live. One shoe on the other missing…..no towel or any bedding below him….people were literally stepping over him Manhattan style…..i shook my head and moved along to my event….

    most of the rest of the crazy homeless types in the dtla area fit this description but the last 2 or 3 times i was there i noticed hard ass LAPD types on bicycles moving them along away from tourists and business types….i guess toward Skid Row…..

    I was last there in 2017 and i recall news in 2014 or 15 they were building a Whole Foods on what used to be Skid Row. You used to be able to go into the LACC and look east and you’d see small 3 story level sprawl as far as the eye could see. Since 2015 they started buildimg condos where Skid Row was….the eastern southern part of DTLA bu the LACC is now littered with dozens of high rise condos & hotels…..so i guess the black homeless population has been pushed further east…..

    You have to feed the French bulldogs better food.

    It's funny how some dog breeds reflect their countries of origin. Just briefly from one dog site:


    French Bulldog vs English Bulldog: Temperament

    The French and English Bulldog is friendly, loyal, and intelligent, but that is where the temperament similarities end.

    French Bulldogs are fun-loving, sneaky lap dogs.

    They like to cuddle and play but can be stubborn and independent.

    The English Bulldog has a calmer and more dignified demeanor.

    Why isn’t anybody sending food and other aid down there? We have all these Hispanic and immigration organizations and woke people out there who claim to care so much about these people. Evidently that is not true if they aren’t at our border or already here.

    We were going to get an immigration surge anyway if Biden got elected but now it’s going to be much worse. “President Joe Biden’s administration has been undoing Trump-era immigration policies that closed off routes to asylum in the United States, while trying to dissuade new arrivals until the system for legal migration is overhauled.” Notice the Biden administration isn’t saying don’t come, they are saying don’t come yet.

    If we don’t want all these people up here, we should send food to them down there. By doing nothing are Biden and the woke Democrats actually trying to encourage them to come? I am a Democrat myself so I sure hope not but what else explains the situation?

    I can live with a black Superman. It will be interesting to see if a black version is set in the times of the original Superman or today.

    The article says though "No plot yet and no attachments despite the fact that we’ve heard how Henry Cavill is eager to get back into the cape." Will Coates write for a white hero?

    I figured though that this was a nonfiction writer being given a chance to branch out that probably wouldn't work out -- most nonfiction writers can't produce a good fiction, screenplays, etc. But it turns out he already has a track record:

    "Of note, Coates has written a Black Panther and a Captain America series for Marvel Comics. Coates received a special thanks credit on Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther."

    If he gets himself established in Hollywood we can look forward to one anti-white privilege movie a year, I suppose, for God knows how long. Others may mimic him. That is a much harder proposition to contemplate. Also I don't like the idea of even more comic books movies. There's too much special effects movies today as it is.

    I used to know a good-looking Canadian girl - a Newfie - who married a Utah Mormon from a wealthy family. He was a short dumpy little guy and she was, if not smoking hot, markedly more attractive.

    This girl was obsessed with Lady Gaga and even went so far as to participate in lookalike contests.

    I once asked her what her conservative husband thought of her Gaga fixation, and she replied, curtly, “He hates her. We never talk about it.” Then she abruptly changed the subject.

    They had a great deal of trouble conceiving even one child - despite expensive fertility treatments - and finally opted for adoption. (She quietly let all of her friends know that he was the one who was infertile.) One of the babies was Mexican.

    One day, I received a frantic message from a mutual female acquaintance, a childless SJW from Portland.

    “I’m literally going into shock right now,” she gasped. “She called her Mexican child the brown one!”

    I don't think people care about his kids and their spouses supporting him, they wonder who else is. Or don't the other people want their names mentioned? People in Congress are still supporting him because the base is. But what about the unelected people?

    Trump intends to assert ownership over the Party. That will certainly please his followers but what happens if he ends up having unmanageable legal and/or money problems or if there are a lot of convictions of January 6 defendants? There's a lot people don't know now that they will find out over the next three plus years. Will the base stand by him?

    Since the last BLM riots in the Hollywood neighborhood, I've noticed far more non-neighborhood blacks floating around. A lot of them come in as a gang on bicycles, riding up in the Hollywood Hills. I've never seen that once before in the many years I've lived there, and after the riots I was seeing it fairly regularly. I just figured the libs in the neighborhood were so traumatized by the riots (one home owner on Franklin Ave spray painted her own brick wall facing Franklin with large letters with "Black Lives Matter." I was astounded. Who defaces their own property? Hollywood whack jobs do, apparently. The city made her paint it over, and she was livid. Also, it was no secret the local cops were pissed off and demoralized. I think the black kids realized that, so they made many bike excursions into the Hollywood Hills with impunity.

    Anyway, GaGa met her fate with her dogs half-way. If she had been paying attention, she'd know Comptonites were regularly cruising the Hollywood Hills on bikes and in shitty Nissan Altima's. Even though they're clearly not residents of the neighborhood, and look shady as shit, nobody was going to say "boo" to them.

    With GaGa's notoriety and lifestyle, she should have chosen to live in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, or Paciifc Palisades, where the boring old money is. There's a lot of older people living in those areas, the residents know or are aware of each other, and function more as a community, so Police still don't put up with the bullshit. Plus it's harder to get in and out of those places.

    The Hollywood Hills is a completely different story. It's too easy to commit a crime, and get right on the 101 freeway heading either direction. Because of covid, the chance of getting stuck in any traffic is slim to none. And because they're black, most woke residents won't call the police if they witness sketchy behavior by blacks running way outside their zip code, until someone is actually shot.

    I feel sorry for the dogs, but GaGa got what what was coming. Don't show off your wealth in front of poor blacks. They don't like it. It just so happens now, poor blacks are floating about without a care into the Hollywood Hills.

    Check your Jewish Privilege, Ms. Ga! Or get the hell out of the Hollywood Hills!

    In my opinion, Lady Gaga gave an excellent rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at Biden's inauguration which is notoriously a difficult song to sing. She ended her rendition by adding a quaver to the last chord that I thought uncalled for. Also, her outfit was beyond silly. Never having seen her perform, I was surprised to discover that she is a wee person with an interesting Jewish face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WltxPQlNT00

    Since the last BLM riots in the Hollywood neighborhood, I’ve noticed far more non-neighborhood blacks floating around. A lot of them come in as a gang on bicycles, riding up in the Hollywood Hills. I’ve never seen that once before in the many years I’ve lived there, and after the riots I was seeing it fairly regularly. I just figured the libs in the neighborhood were so traumatized by the riots (one home owner on Franklin Ave spray painted her own brick wall facing Franklin with large letters with “Black Lives Matter.” I was astounded. Who defaces their own property? Hollywood whack jobs do, apparently. The city made her paint it over, and she was livid. Also, it was no secret the local cops were pissed off and demoralized. I think the black kids realized that, so they made many bike excursions into the Hollywood Hills with impunity.

    Anyway, GaGa met her fate with her dogs half-way. If she had been paying attention, she’d know Comptonites were regularly cruising the Hollywood Hills on bikes and in shitty Nissan Altima’s. Even though they’re clearly not residents of the neighborhood, and look shady as shit, nobody was going to say “boo” to them.

    With GaGa’s notoriety and lifestyle, she should have chosen to live in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, or Paciifc Palisades, where the boring old money is. There’s a lot of older people living in those areas, the residents know or are aware of each other, and function more as a community, so Police still don’t put up with the bullshit. Plus it’s harder to get in and out of those places.

    The Hollywood Hills is a completely different story. It’s too easy to commit a crime, and get right on the 101 freeway heading either direction. Because of covid, the chance of getting stuck in any traffic is slim to none. And because they’re black, most woke residents won’t call the police if they witness sketchy behavior by blacks running way outside their zip code, until someone is actually shot.

    I feel sorry for the dogs, but GaGa got what what was coming. Don’t show off your wealth in front of poor blacks. They don’t like it. It just so happens now, poor blacks are floating about without a care into the Hollywood Hills.

    Check your Jewish Privilege, Ms. Ga! Or get the hell out of the Hollywood Hills!

    This girl was obsessed with Lady Gaga and even went so far as to participate in lookalike contests.

    I once asked her what her conservative husband thought of her Gaga fixation, and she replied, curtly, “He hates her. We never talk about it.” Then she abruptly changed the subject.

    They had a great deal of trouble conceiving even one child – despite expensive fertility treatments – and finally opted for adoption. (She quietly let all of her friends know that he was the one who was infertile.) One of the babies was Mexican.

    One day, I received a frantic message from a mutual female acquaintance, a childless SJW from Portland.

    “I’m literally going into shock right now,” she gasped. “She called her Mexican child the brown one!”

    I wonder if there was a modern Kitty Genovese effect going on in the dognapping and shooting? Post-George Floyd good white are trigger-shy on calling 911 on blacks. I saw a video of the incident on TMZ and the dog walker put up a struggle and the crime was not that quick. Was a call first placed after the gun shot? If the call went in when the dog walker yelled for help some units could have been en route from various directions and noticed the car speeding away, even a half-mile or a mile away. Perps who just shot a guy in the chest don’t play it cool for quite a while afterwards.

    But blacks call 911 at a rate 20x that of whites.

    ...The extensive role of police in American life has come under scrutiny in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and other recent deaths of Black Americans at the hands of police. Fury over the killings and, more broadly, a long history of police abuse of Black people have led not only to demands for police to be better trained and more restrained in their use of force, but that their extensive presence in American life be cut back as well.

    Maybe it will be about Steel, the black engineer who built an Ironman like suit and took up the mantle of Superman after he was killed by Doomsday back in the early 90’s. They already made a movie about it, with Shaq in the lead role, but given Hollywood’s love of reboots, and lack of creativity, I could see this happening.

    The question now is, do they try to fence the dogs for a few thousand or brazenly demand a ransom for half a mil or more.

    In 20 combined seasons of 5-0 and Mannix I don't recall a single dognapping episode, but this script practically writes itself, especially with a quirky show-biz celebrity owner. McGarrett sternly warns Gaga that her dogs are as good as dead if she agrees to pay the ransom -- then on cue the phone rings and they do a rack focus shot between the actors and the phone looming in the foreground. Now try to trace the call!

    Eventually it turns out to be an inside job with the dog walker. "Go ahead, shoot me a couple more times, make it look good." "OK, man."

    There was a 5-0 where a struggling actor arranged for a couple of his shady friends to stage a fake kidnapping of himself. After a few days of generating a lot of publicity and hopefully helping out his flagging career, he was to be released unharmed and his friends disappear

    His shady friends then got the idea of demanding a ransom of tens of thousands for his release. Then it looked like they would have to kill the actor as he would no doubt turn them in.

    The fake kidnapping almost went terminally bad for the actor, but McGarret rescues him in the end.

    I’d seriously doubt its the case here, but a dog walker could attempt to ingratiate himself with a wealthy dog owner by stopping a dognapping attempt.

    He’s lucky to be alive. He should of just let the dogs go.

    I imagine Gaga’s gonna make sure the guy’s well taken care of.

    French Bulldog vs English Bulldog: Temperament

    The French and English Bulldog is friendly, loyal, and intelligent, but that is where the temperament similarities end.

    French Bulldogs are fun-loving, sneaky lap dogs.

    They like to cuddle and play but can be stubborn and independent.

    The English Bulldog has a calmer and more dignified demeanor.

It has the nerve to bark and growl at my much larger Aussies, who happen to be overly interested in small dogs and not in a good way. My husband’s boss has a Frenchie, too. It seemed friendly enough but rather dumb. I can’t wait until the whole brachycephalic pushed-in dog face craze is over. They’re all ugly breeds.

    What exactly is the market for adult Frenchies? Are people that desperate for one? I don’t understand why the poor dog walker had to be shot four times. You would think merely pointing a gun at the guy would make him give up the dogs. Also, walking them at ten at night in that area? What an idiot. Ten is late for a walk and that breed doesn’t need that much exercise in the first place.

    ...The flagship university is the latest among schools across the country to extend the temporary hold on the traditional application requirement. Earlier this year, multiple Ivy League universities and others had extended their "test-optional" policies through 2022.

    In Texas, Rice University in Houston made a similar announcement. The University of Houston System also said it would remain test-optional through fall 2022 and would consider making the change permanent. Baylor University also made the standardized tests optional through fall 2023 and said it will reevaluate the policy for future years. Texas A&M University has also extended its policy to 2022 and anticipates 2023 will be test optional as well.

    I can live with a black Superman. It will be interesting to see if a black version is set in the times of the original Superman or today.

    The article says though "No plot yet and no attachments despite the fact that we’ve heard how Henry Cavill is eager to get back into the cape." Will Coates write for a white hero?

    I figured though that this was a nonfiction writer being given a chance to branch out that probably wouldn't work out -- most nonfiction writers can't produce a good fiction, screenplays, etc. But it turns out he already has a track record:

    "Of note, Coates has written a Black Panther and a Captain America series for Marvel Comics. Coates received a special thanks credit on Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther."

    If he gets himself established in Hollywood we can look forward to one anti-white privilege movie a year, I suppose, for God knows how long. Others may mimic him. That is a much harder proposition to contemplate. Also I don't like the idea of even more comic books movies. There's too much special effects movies today as it is. They are crowding out the movies in which people and human emotions dominate.

    Replies: @anon, @John Johnson, @Ed

    I guess this is why they’re talking about getting rid of Cavill as Superman and replacing him with a black actor, Michael Jordan.

  149. The guys who shot the dog walker and stole the dogs could have been hired by somebody else to do that, so the “political” motivation is not quite as remote as it might seem. Still seems a bit unlikely, although there are many people who donate vast sums to political causes, so not impossible.

    In reality, although this breed of dog can sell for quite a high price, dog breeders have a sales structure, and it is not necessarily so easy to advertise a middle-aged, neutered French bulldog on Craigslist for $5000 and get paid in cash no questions.

    People who are rich enough to buy this kind of dog tend to want to have pedigree papers and talk to the breeder and so on. And they are usually looking for a puppy, not a mature dog.

    So shooting a dog walker so as to steal a dog or dogs, seems like pretty poor judgement, in which case the criminals will probably soon be caught.

  150. It seems odd that the dog walker was shot four times in the chest and yet has survived. You would think that if somebody was shot four times in the chest they would be good and dead.

    So it might turn out that he was shot with a BB gun or something, and had a very painful injury that was not life threatening.

    It seems odd that the dog walker was shot four times in the chest and yet has survived. You would think that if somebody was shot four times in the chest they would be good and dead.

    It was probably a small caliber semi auto.

    They wanted our phones, which we were cleverly holding in front of our faces as we walked. We declined, gently under the circumstances.[..] I know I would've surrendered my phone eventually... The kid opposite Matt drew a small, shiny object from wherever he'd been concealing it and passed it to his accomplice, who was standing opposite me. A second or two lapsed -- long enough for me to recognize they weren't joking, but not long enough for me to beg -- before it discharged clap clap clap; my body torqued into the air horizontally [...] I got one last bit of good news from the departing ambulance driver -- "Congratulations, Brian. You're the latest survivor of D.C. violence." Then came the bad news from an attending physician in the emergency room. "Brian, we have to take you into surgery. We have to remove your spleen to save your life." I remember thinking that a splenectomy was probably as unobtrusive as an appendectomy.

    I scratched my chest and nearly ripped out a staple. Odd. Below it there was another. I traced a line of them from my sternum down to below my belly button. It turns out that even if a bullet only causes minor internal damage, doctors have to cut you wide open -- to perform a procedure called an exploratory laparotomy -- to make sure they're not missing anything dangerous or fatal. In my case there were three bullets, including the one in my shoulder, and the injuries were pretty severe. Punctured lung, punctured diaphragm, punctured stomach, ruptured spleen, broken ribs, a hematoma on my kidney. One bullet tunneled harmlessly around the bones and muscles in my shoulder and remains lodged in a back rib on the upper-left side of my body. Doctors removed another with my spleen. The third missed both my aorta and my spine by an inch or less, exited my back and landed on Euclid Street. A little this way and I'd be paralyzed. A little that way and I'd have bled out before the ambulance arrived. [...]

    I thought it was odd, too. As I recall I think I read there were no signs of impairment so they didn’t do drug or alcohol tests. But that’s relying on people’s judgment when it’s unnecessary. Pills don’t smell like booze does and Woods was a mess, I think the emergency workers were a lot more worried about his injuries than whether his behavior indicated impairment.

    I definitely think he should have been tested.

    You have to feed the French bulldogs better food.

    It's funny how some dog breeds reflect their countries of origin. Just briefly from one dog site:


    French Bulldog vs English Bulldog: Temperament

    The French and English Bulldog is friendly, loyal, and intelligent, but that is where the temperament similarities end.

    French Bulldogs are fun-loving, sneaky lap dogs.

    They like to cuddle and play but can be stubborn and independent.

    The English Bulldog has a calmer and more dignified demeanor.

    We had bulldogs when I was kid. One was the best guard-dog ever.
    If some-one he didn’t know came into a room the dog would go and sit by the door. When they got up to go, the dog would stand up and smile.
    The visitor would sit down, so would the dog.
    Repeat as necessary.

    My next door neighbor has a chubby black Frenchie which I call the Pigbat. It has the nerve to bark and growl at my much larger Aussies, who happen to be overly interested in small dogs and not in a good way. My husband’s boss has a Frenchie, too. It seemed friendly enough but rather dumb. I can’t wait until the whole brachycephalic pushed-in dog face craze is over. They’re all ugly breeds.

    What exactly is the market for adult Frenchies? Are people that desperate for one? I don’t understand why the poor dog walker had to be shot four times. You would think merely pointing a gun at the guy would make him give up the dogs. Also, walking them at ten at night in that area? What an idiot. Ten is late for a walk and that breed doesn’t need that much exercise in the first place.

Big brave macho black men. She screamed and screamed they ran. She got herself and the kids in the car followed the black things. Called police on her cell phone and they were caught after a few blocks Santa Monica, a separate city, not Los Angeles. Not everyone had a cell phone 25 years ago.

    I used to know a good-looking Canadian girl - a Newfie - who married a Utah Mormon from a wealthy family. He was a short dumpy little guy and she was, if not smoking hot, markedly more attractive.

    This girl was obsessed with Lady Gaga and even went so far as to participate in lookalike contests.

    I once asked her what her conservative husband thought of her Gaga fixation, and she replied, curtly, “He hates her. We never talk about it.” Then she abruptly changed the subject.

    They had a great deal of trouble conceiving even one child - despite expensive fertility treatments - and finally opted for adoption. (She quietly let all of her friends know that he was the one who was infertile.) One of the babies was Mexican.

    One day, I received a frantic message from a mutual female acquaintance, a childless SJW from Portland.

    There was a 5-0 where a struggling actor arranged for a couple of his shady friends to stage a fake kidnapping of himself. After a few days of generating a lot of publicity and hopefully helping out his flagging career, he was to be released unharmed and his friends disappear

    His shady friends then got the idea of demanding a ransom of tens of thousands for his release. Then it looked like they would have to kill the actor as he would no doubt turn them in.

    The fake kidnapping almost went terminally bad for the actor, but McGarret rescues him in the end.

    I'd seriously doubt its the case here, but a dog walker could attempt to ingratiate himself with a wealthy dog owner by stopping a dognapping attempt.

    You could say Lois Lane may be black instead, but there’s no way Ta Nehisi Coates will write a story about a white demigod banging a black woman.
     
    Didn't the Supergirl TV series convert the James Olsen reporter character to a Black man and showed them in bed together?

    The most disturbing thing about the movie Annihilation was Natalie Portman banging a black guy twice her size behind the back of her actual husband.

    She regretted it though.

    NYSlimes and rest of the media just blamed the murder on her White neighbors callously ignoring the murder instead of ever mentioning a black man murdered her.
     
    Not alone that, but the NYT published this article written by Kitty Genovese's murderer Winston Moseley in 1977 - this after he had escaped from prison and raped another woman.

    Just read the article. What was it? His parole request written by that idiot nun sister Mary Frances?

    The cities are in for a long hard return to high black crime and more and more White Asian Hispanic flight. And this time it’s aided abetted and encouraged by George Soros district attorneys.

  196. How were these criminals Trump supporters? Piss poor biased fake journalism once again . . . . . . author should find another line of work because he’s not a journalist.

    I remember looking at a 1962 Radcliffe yearbook. Ugliest young WASP women I’ve ever seen in my life.

    You and are on to something.

    Physiognomy will out.

  200. There is a three min video of the dog walker giving the Gaga dog ashes in a mock Ash Wednesday ceremony last month. He gives the dogs a homily on animism and reincarnation underneath a neon cross.
