White House contacts Charlotte gay Republican group snubbed by LGBT parade | Charlotte Observe
President Donald Trump’s staff has taken notice of the LGBT Republicans group in Charlotte that was banned this month from participating in city’s annual gay pride parade.
Mecklenburg County’s Republican Party says the White House Office of Political Affairs contacted Deplorable Pride on Monday, with questions about the gay organization’s political activities in Charlotte.
Brian Talbert, co-founder of Deplorable Pride, described the call as a show of support. But he said the conversation concluded with questions about Charlotte Pride’s refusal to allow his group’s tongue-in-cheek float in the city’s pride parade this summer.
The 27-foot-long float would have included a female impersonator dressed as first lady Melania Trump, surrounded by a handful of other female impersonators wearing blue sequined “Make American Great Again” evening gowns.

Top Democrat calls for investigation of Loretta Lynch’s Clinton probe | New York Post

“I would have a queasy feeling too,” Feinstein admitted Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think we need to know more about that. And there’s only one way to know about it and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.” Lynch, a President Obama nominee, ultimately had to distance herself from the FBI probe after meeting with former President Bill Clinton on a tarmac in Phoenix during the height of the election campaign and email investigation. Lynch said the meeting was impromptu and they didn’t discuss Clinton’s private email server, but the appearance of impropriety forced her to back off and for Comey to become the public face of the probe.

Racist Nutjob, William Boucher is a Socialist.

On June 6, 2017, William Boucher went Bat-Crap Crazy at the  Starbucks in Chicago Loop. After hurling racial slurs at a Black man, Boucher spits on a 30-year-old man and 34-year-old woman before punching a 59-year-old homeless man. Of course, everyone now has a portable video camera with instant access to the internet, so the video has gone viral. The only thing missing from most stores regarding this event is William Boucher's his political affiliation.

Well, William Boucher is a Socialist. We managed to grab that much before his Facebook page was shut down. We all know that the page and any pro-Trump post would be the lead of every newscast.Given this political stance, he is most likely Bernie Sanders supporter and/or a Hillary Clinton voter. Of course, given the amount of anti-minority hatred he has shown, any evidence of his support of the Democratic Party will need to be erased from the public record as soon as possible.

‘Disruptive technology should encourage some US wineries to up their game’

Beverage Grades analyzes the 'DNA' of wine to identify cheaper bottles that taste almost identical to your favorites and its founders agree the technology should encourage US wineries to raise standards. more.. The idea of the app, plug in an expensive bottle of wine and find the best cheap alternative.  In a demonstration, they plugged in Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay (2011) which averages $1/bottle and found a 96.8% taste match with Camelot Chardonnay (2009) at only $5.81/ bottle. The hope was to offer the app free and then monetize the data by licensing it to distributors and liqueur stores. The big problem with the app, it found a chemical match, which does not equal a taste match.
In September o…
