1,000 People Stranded In Death Valley National Park After Flash Flooding

Flash floods strand 1,000 people and cars at DV Park Record rainfall Friday trigged flash floods at Death Valley National Park that swept away cars, closed all roads and stranded hundreds of visitors and workers.

There were no immediate reports of injuries but roughly 60 vehicles were buried in mud and debris and about 500 visitors and 500 park workers were stuck inside the park, officials said.

Record rainfall at Death Valley National Park buried dozens of vehicles in mud and debris and trapped hundreds of workers and visitors there.

The park near the California-Nevada state line received 1.46 inches (3.71 centimeters) of rain at the Furnace Creek area. That’s about 75% of what the area typically gets in a year and more than has ever been recorded for the entire month of August.

Alex Jones ordered to pay $49.3M total over Sandy Hook lies

Alex Jones to pay $49.3.A Texas jury on Friday ordered Infowars’ Alex Jones to pay $49.3 million in total damages to the parents of a first-grader killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, which the conspiracy theorist falsely called a hoax orchestrated by the government in order to tighten U.S. gun laws.

The amount is less than the $150 million sought by Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose 6-year-old son Jesse Lewis was among the 20 children and six educators killed in the deadliest classroom shooting in U.S. history. The trial is the first time Jones has been held financially liable for peddling lies about the 2012 attack in Newtown, Connecticut.

Jurors at first awarded Heslin and Lewis $4.1 million in compensatory damages, which Jones called a major victory. But in the final phase of the two-week trial, the same Austin jury came back and tacked on an additional $45.2 million in punitive damages.

Minnesota jury rules that pharmacist who denied woman morning after pill didn’t violate her rights

Pharmasist not guilty after refusing woam moriing after pill

A jury in Minnesota ruled on Friday that a pharmacist did not commit discrimination when he did not fill an emergency contraception prescription for a woman after her prior contraceptive method failed, according to the gender advocacy group Gender Justice.

A jury in Aitkin County found that a pharmacist’s decision not to provide an emergency contraception prescription to plaintiff Andrea Anderson after citing his “beliefs” did not constitute discrimination.

According to court documents, Anderson went to the only pharmacy located in her town to retrieve a prescription of emergency contraception after another method failed, but the pharmacist there rejected her request.

The filing further claims that she would later have to drive more than 100 miles in total in order to get her morning after pill after having several pharmacies reject her request.

TVNL Comment: How abjectly horrible is this decision?  Religion over law.

CPAC Has A Special Exhibit: A Sobbing Jan. 6 Rioter In Jail

CPAC has a special exhibit: a fake rioterAt the Conservative Political Action Conference this week in Dallas, attendees can gaze upon a bizarre exhibit in which an actor, pretending to be a Jan. 6 rioter, sobs in a jail cell.

Because the “f**k your feelings” crowd apparently has a soft spot for people the Justice Department considers domestic terrorists.

Journalist Laura Jedeed documented the confounding MAGA booth Friday and described is as “the most astonishing thing” she’s ever seen.

“At this CPAC booth you receive a silent disco headset that plays harrowing testimony from the people arrested for participating in J6,” she tweeted. “Instead of dancing, you stand around and watch this guy cry.”

Kevin Spacey ordered to pay $31m to House of Cards producers

Kevin Spacey ordered to pay $31m to producers

Kevin Spacey has lost his appeal to have a $31m (£25.5m) arbitration award to the producers of House of Cards overturned.

In November, the Hollywood actor was ordered to pay the sum to MCR following “explosive” allegations of sexual misconduct involving young crew members working on the production.

Spacey had filed to have the order overturned, but his request was denied by a US judge in Los Angeles on Thursday, according to documents obtained by the PA Media news agency.

Judge Mel Red Recana wrote that Spacey and his attorneys “fail to demonstrate that this is even a close case” and “do not demonstrate that the damages award was so utterly irrational that it amounts to an arbitrary remaking of the parties’ contracts”.

New York Health Department says hundreds of people may be infected with polio virus

Hundreds in NY may have polio virus

Just two weeks ago, the New York Health Department reported the nation's first case of polio in almost a decade, in Rockland County, north of New York City. Officials said that case occurred in a previously healthy young adult who was unvaccinated and developed paralysis in their legs.

Since then, three positive wastewater samples from Rockland County and four from neighboring Orange County were discovered and genetically linked to the first case, the health department said in a press release on Thursday, suggesting that the polio virus is being spread within local communities. The newest samples were taken from two locations in Orange County in June and July and one location in Rockland County in July.

US library defunded after refusing to censor LGBTQ authors: ‘We will not ban the books’

US Library loses funding for refusing to censor books

A small-town library is at risk of shutting down after residents of Jamestown, Michigan, voted to defund it rather than tolerate certain LGBTQ+-themed books.

Residents voted on Tuesday to block a renewal of funds tied to property taxes, Bridge Michigan reported.

The vote leaves the library with funds through the first quarter of next year. Once a reserve fund is used up, it would be forced to close, Larry Walton, the library board’s president, told Bridge Michigan – harming not just readers but the community at large. Beyond books, residents visit the library for its wifi, he said, and it houses the very room where the vote took place.

“Our libraries are places to read, places to gather, places to socialize, places to study, places to learn. I mean, they’re the heart of every community,” Deborah Mikula, executive director of the Michigan Library Association, told the Guardian. “So how can you lose that?”

TVNL Comment: It starts with banning the books.  Wake up, America!
