Tammy Bruce: California Dems’ commitment to being official clown car of the Democratic Party continues

California’s commitment to being the official clown car of the Democratic Party continues apace.

The latest absurdity is brought to us by legislation from the Democratically controlled state legislature seeking to ban all those little plastic toiletry bottles one finds in hotel rooms.

”‘We know we have an enormous problem with our world, we’ve become addicted to [plastic], and it’s caused a major dilemma environmentally,’ said Assemblyman Ash Kalra, who introduced Bill AB-1162 in February,” Fox News reported.

TAMMY BRUCE: THE FRAYING EDGES OF UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE

This urgent need for legislation is due to, of course, climate change. Plastic is pouring into our oceans, harming the ecosystem and destroying the lives of animals. But don’t tell Democrats that the culprit isn’t pesky Americans or the United States. No, it’s actually the direct fault of five Asian nations, led by China.

Last year, a headline at Forbes said, “5 Asian countries dump more plastic into oceans than anyone else combined.” China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam are the culprits, according to a 2017 report by Ocean Conservancy and cited by the news magazine.

This is an awful problem, and not only will banning the tiny traveler-size shampoo bottles from hotels in California not help, it does damage in that it sends a message to Americans that they’re actually doing something to solve the problem when nothing could be further from the truth.

The solution, California says, is for hotels and resorts to install refillable dispensers in bathrooms. But one of the beneficial things of these tiny bottles is that you are met with the message that the hotel shower is not a spa. The tiny bottles themselves tell you to hurry it up. For a state with droughts, you would think that would be an important message. But that would require thinking, which is in short supply these days in the Golden State.

Eventually, you know California will not be able to abide convenience and drug stores selling the travel-sized toiletries, either. As Americans are inclined to do, this might evolve into a new sort of entrepreneurism.

I can’t wait to see a man standing in front of hotel-approaching tourists, flinging open his trench coat revealing a myriad of tiny bottle toiletries for the reasonable black market price of $10 each — Pantene shampoo and conditioner, the tiny Gold Bond hand cream, miniature Secret deodorant and the handy-dandy Lilliputian version of Listerine. Tiny bottles for the tiny criminal lurking within you.

But it’s not just California that has this inclination to mislead people about American responsibility for the assault on the environment.

Attending a meeting, I recently stayed at a major hotel chain in Washington, D.C. I arrived somewhat late the night before and was happy with the idea of ordering room service for dinner. Yet, there was no room service menu. I turned on the television to look for the digital version. Not there, either.

I called down to the front desk, and they informed me that in their commitment to being a green hotel chain and to help save the planet, they were using less paper and were no longer providing room service menus. They would, however, be happy to send someone up with a menu.

So here is a hotel that does not provide a room service menu because of the paper involved (you know, to save energy and consumption), but is willing to send a staff person to use an energy-guzzling elevator to deliver the piece of paper they did not provide. To save the planet. Got it.

After this Kafka-esque experience of ordering a hamburger, I get the one-page menu, order and finally there’s the “room service!” knock. I open the door and the porter has my food in a … paper bag.

Not on a tray, but yes, in a paper bag.

I ask him if there was a shortage of service trays. But no, I was informed this is how they deliver all their room service food … in paper bags. Indeed, the next morning as I left my room to attend the meeting, there are torn and used paper bags in front of other doors waiting for collection by the room service staff.

All I could do was laugh and hope George Orwell doesn’t mind becoming an adjective.

Here we have the bread and circus of “going green” — ridiculous virtue signaling that is not just irrelevant but absurd in the end. Asian nations continue to dump plastics into the ocean and now likely laugh as California, major hotel chains and politicians make fools of us all. It’s like being told to dance as someone shoots at your feet. And we dance and dance.

Today’s Democrats have made sure that their constituency is prepared for and expects to be blamed for the world’s excesses. Americans are bad and selfish, we are told, and everything is our fault. The only difference? Everything is still our fault and now our hair won’t be clean.

As long as we allow the liberal machine to spread the lie that the American individual, and this country as a whole, is the problem in the world, despots and dictators in other nations will continue to have a field day turning the environment into a dumpster fire.

Kansas City Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill reportedly loses custody of son amid abuse investigation

Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill reportedly had his young toddler removed from his and the boy’s mother’s custody.

Word of the boy’s removal from his parents’ care comes a month after the wide receiver was being investigated over alleged incidents of battery against the child, the Kansas City Star reported Friday.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS’ TYREEK HILL REPORTEDLY INVESTIGATED OVER TWO INCIDENTS INVOLVING TODDLER SON

Hill and his fiancée Crystal Espinal were seen at a Johnson County, Kan., courthouse Wednesday as they participated in a “child in need of care case,” according to the newspaper.

Earlier this week, Hill showed up at offseason voluntary workouts for the Chiefs. Hill didn’t address the media. Chiefs coach Andy Reid addressed his wide receiver’s situation.

“I know you’re going to potentially ask about Tyreek,” Reid told reporters, according to Kansas City Star. “Tyreek is here. I don’t have anything further to tell you from the statement we put out. There’s been no new news on it. I’m going to leave it at that. I have had a chance to say hello to him. I have done that. And again, see him in the meeting.”

He later added: “I’m not here to judge. I’m here to coach.”

The first alleged incident occurred March 5 when Overland Park police were called due to a report of child abuse or neglect at home, KCTV News 5 reported. Police were then called to the same Kansas home to investigate a battery against a juvenile. Hill’s name wasn’t listed on the second police report, according to the station.

A source familiar with the second incident told the Kansas City Star the situation resulted in the son breaking his arm. Espinal was reportedly listed as “others involved” on the police report. The Kansas Department of Children and Families told the paper it was investigating as well.

According to KCTV News 5, Hill went to the Johnson County Courthouse for an emergency hearing April 5, which resulted in his son temporarily being placed in another home.

Hill has not been charged with a crime. The NFL team said in a March statement it was “aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill. We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities.”

The speedy wide receiver was at Oklahoma State when he pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery in 2015, when his then-pregnant girlfriend accused him of choking her and punching her in the stomach. According to KCTV News 5, Hill was given a deferred sentence of three years and his record was expunged. The Chiefs then selected him in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

A 68-year-old man in China reportedly underwent life-changing surgery to remove a 61-pound cancerous tumor from his neck and upper back earlier this month. The patient, identified as Mr. Tang, had reportedly had the tumor for over 30 years but couldn’t find a doctor willing to operate.

According to AsiaWire, Dr. Yang Jun at Ninth People’s Hospital of Shanghai agreed to take on his case following a medical emergency related to the tumor last year. The tumor, which measured 33 inches long by 25 inches wide, was allegedly attached to Tang’s lungs, spine and major blood vessels.

Yang reportedly led the 33-hour marathon surgery on April 1, and said Tang experienced major blood loss due to the complexity of the tumor, but that they stabilized him and were able to remove the entire growth.

Good God, free at last, free at last.

Donald Trump is now free to be president without the cloud that hovered over him since his election. No president ever faced, let alone survived, a probe as fierce and determined as this one.

Cleared of false charges that threatened to end his presidency, Trump can be forgiven for gloating and rubbing a little salt into the wounds of his tormentors with a jab about serving another “10 to 14 years.”

MICHAEL GOODWIN: AS TRUMP SOARS HIGHER, DEMS REACH THEIR LOWEST POINT YET

Naturally, the hysterics are hysterical over that one. They can’t even take a joke.

Yet Trump’s great victory is not his alone. The release of the special counsel report marks a day of freedom for all of America and sends shock waves around the world.

As Attorney General William Barr said, the finding by special counsel Robert Mueller that nobody in the United States knowingly helped Russia interfere in the 2016 presidential campaign “is something that all Americans can and should be grateful to have confirmed.”

Take that, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Deal with it, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler. You should be celebrating the outcome, not denouncing it.

Woman gets jail for running over son in school parking lot

A woman who pleaded guilty to reckless driving for running over her 9-year-old son while dropping him off at school in Michigan has been ordered to serve 30 days in jail.

Thirty-six-year-old Tiffany Kosakowski said during her Thursday sentencing hearing that she must “live with this for the rest of my life.”

Kent County Circuit Court Judge Curt Benson sentenced her to 6 months in jail, with all but 30 days suspended. He called her actions “simply inexcusable.”

Kosakowski’s son hung from the passenger-side front door for nearly 50 yards (48 meters) in December at Chandler Woods Charter Academy’s parking lot in Belmont before he lost his grip and was run over.

Authorities say he didn’t want to stay at school. The boy survived but suffered traumatic injury to his brain.

Trump’s ‘unprecedented cooperation’ with Mueller probe being weaponized for ‘political purposes’: Ken Starr

Former independent counsel Ken Starr offered his praise for President Trump’s and his administration’s “unprecedented cooperation” with Special Counsel Robert Mueller that led to the disclosure of embarrassing conversations that are being seized upon for “political purposes.”

“Not only was there was no obstruction, there was cooperation,” Starr, who was the independent counsel investigating the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals during the Clinton administration, said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Friday morning.

“Not only was there was no obstruction there was cooperation.”

— Former independent counsel Ken Starr

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S COOPERATION WITH MUELLER PROBE WAS ‘UNPRECEDENTED’: KEN STARR

“Did the president want to cooperate? No. Did he like Bob Mueller in the whole thing? He hated it. Well, guess what? Bill Clinton hated me and hated the investigation,” he said, pointing out multiple presidents in the past fired the special counsel and the special prosecutor.

“There is a difference between having thoughts and this is another dimension that really did surprise me, how open and frank the conversations are with the president of the United States that then become disclosed and are now in the public domain,” he continued, noting that the president didn’t invoke executive privilege on the conversations “that are now, obviously, embarrassing to the president and being seized upon for political purposes.”

“There is a difference between having thoughts and this is another dimension that really did surprise me how open and frank the conversations are with the president of the United States that then become disclosed and are now in the public domain.”

— Former independent counsel Ken Starr

“But, there was no obstruction here. The 10 obstructive acts don’t add up to be an obstruction of justice in the criminal sense,” Starr said.

MUELLER REPORT SHOWS PROBE DID NOT FIND COLLUSION EVIDENCE, REVEALS TRUMP EFFORTS TO SIDELINE KEY PLAYERS

The Mueller report, which was released Thursday and found no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, revealed serious efforts to sideline Mueller from the investigation.

The move to fire the special counsel didn’t materialize after White House Counsel Don McGahn supposedly refused to carry out Trump’ suggestion to ask the acting attorney general to sideline Mueller. Trump didn’t follow up on the request.

Starr said the episode, although politically embarrassing to the White House, doesn’t rise to the obstruction charges.

“The law cares about what is done, not what is thought and what is said. And so the president’s instincts were very aggressive. He knows how to fire people and he fires people. But, guess what? He may have come to the brink but he didn’t walk across that as it were a red line,” he said.

“He showed wisdom at the end. I wish the president didn’t foment so much. He is sometimes his worst enemy. Fomenting is not a crime and lashing out is not a crime. Totally understandable. Let’s put ourselves in his situation. We might have said some naughty words as well.”

Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Biscotti donated $100,000 to help rebuild three Louisiana churches that were recently burned down in an arson attack, former NFL player Benjamin Watson said Wednesday.

Watson wrote in a tweet that Biscotti called him Sunday to commit the money.

Three Baptist churches were targeted over a 10-day span from March 26 to April 4: St Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre; Greater Union Baptist Church in Opelousas; Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Opelousas.

A GoFundMe page has already raised more than $2 million as of Friday.

Watson tweeted April 9 he was monitoring the situation carefully. He then reached out to the pastors of the churches and helped launch the GoFundMe.

Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Biscotti talks on the field before their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium on September 11, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland.

“In speaking with these pastors I am in awe and inspired by their faith and courage, comforting their congregations and family members,” Watson told the New Orleans Advocate. “Through sadness and shock they spoke of forgiveness for the arsonist and grace for tomorrow. Most importantly they spoke of being overwhelmed by support from people of goodwill and all religions from around the country. And they were humbled by what God has already done through this series of events.”

Airline passengers open emergency exit on Utair flight after seeing flames coming from engine

Three passengers flying out of Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport were detained for opening an emergency exit before takeoff, allegedly after seeing flames shooting from the engine.

The flight, operated by Utair and bound for Makhachkala, in Dagestan, Russia, was taxiing across the tarmac at Vnukovo when the passengers claimed the people in the cabin began panicking at the sight of the fire, The Independent reports.

The passengers, two of whom were male and one female, then opened an emergency exit door and climbed out onto the wing, according to the outlet.

Utair staff convinced the travelers to come back inside, reportedly after announcing to the flight that the flames were normal.

A representative for Utair was not immediately available to comment, though a spokesperson told the Independent that no one was in danger during the incident, as the fire was caused by a disruption of air flow.

“Blue Bloods” star Bridget Moynahan says she’s still working on getting her life back to normal after the public scrutiny that followed her 2007 pregnancy with Tom Brady’s child.

In her new book, “Our Shoes, Our Selves,” the model is one of 40 women who shared an essay about what their favorite pair of shoes means to them. In Moynahan’s essay, she gave readers a deeper look into the immense public interest in her after it was revealed she was expecting a baby with the New England Patriots quarterback as he was moving on with his now-wife, Gisele Bundchen.

Moynahan has been candid in the past about being chased by paparazzi everywhere she went with now 11-year-old son Jack. Speaking at a recent BUILD event, Yahoo Entertainment reports that the star opened up about the negative experience and how it still affects her view of herself to this day.

“If I was going into a public space still or walking through the streets, sometimes I change my posture or hide a little bit because of that period of time. Because of that attention that was unwanted,” she said. “I feel like this project has kind of shown that to me that I still unconsciously carried that around with me. And so I’m still working through that and kind of shedding that now.”

GISELE BUNDCHEN CRIED WHEN FORCED TO WALK TOPLESS IN FASHION SHOW: ‘I THOUGHT ABOUT RUNNING AWAY’

In her essay for “Our Shoes, Our Selves,” Moynahan describes a time just after her son was born in which she ducked into a store to avoid photographers. She revealed that’s when a pair of motorcycle boots caught her eye.

“I thought, that’s what I need,” she writes. “Let me get a little bit of my ‘New York’ back, a little armor.”

Today, Moynahan, 47, successfully raises Jack with Brady and Bundchen. She’s moved on from the whirlwind relationship with businessman Andrew Frankel, who she married in 2015.

However, in her book she likened the early days of her parenting in the public eye with being “assaulted.”

“Having a baby should have been the most joyous time of my life, but instead I felt assaulted,” the 47-year-old writes in the book (via Us Weekly). ”It’s unnerving to be followed and stalked like that, especially during such an emotionally vulnerable time.”
