Michael Avenatti represented Stormy Daniels and one of Justice Kavanaugh’s accusers, Julie Swetnick. He said we should believe Dr. Christine Ford’s accusations.

Now the shoe is on the other foot, so to speak, and a woman has accused the Creepy Porn Lawyer of domestic violence. Only it wasn’t his ex-wife, it is some other woman. It’s difficult to draw a cartoon when I don’t know what the accuser looks like, but regardless, Avenatti deserves to be treated as someone innocent until proven guilty.

Even though he didn’t treat Trump or Kavanaugh with the same courtesy.

Democrats usually get a pass for such obvious hypocrisy, though—and maybe this incident will even help Avenatti’s 2020 presidential bid. I’m being facetious, but who knows?

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for a porn actress who claims she was paid hush money to keep silent about an alleged affair with Donald Trump, has reportedly been arrested for domestic violence.

Avenatti’s estranged wife, Lisa Storie, filed a criminal complaint against the lawyer with authorities in Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Storie’s face was ‘swollen and bruised’ when she submitted her complaint to authorities.

The alleged incident took place on Tuesday at an apartment in the Century City section of Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting.

Sources told TMZ that the couple had another confrontation on Wednesday.

Storie was seen Wednesday running out of the apartment and screaming into her cell phone while wearing sunglasses to conceal the alleged bruises on her face.

‘I can’t believe you did this to me,’ she reportedly yelled into the phone.

Security guards then led Storie back inside the building, according to TMZ.

Five minutes later, Avenatti showed up and ran into the building, chasing after her.

‘She hit me first,’ Avenatti is reported to have said repeatedly.

‘This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***,’ he angrily said.

Investigators told TMZ that Avenatti kicked Storie out of his apartment on Tuesday, which was when the alleged incident took place.

Storie then returned to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her things and asked police to wait nearby in case things escalated.

The couple married in 2011. Avenatti filed for divorced last year.

He is reported to be in police custody.

Storie called her estranged husband ’emotionally abusive’, ‘hot-tempered’ and ‘angry and vindictive’ in court documents last year.

The pair began proceedings in November, when Storie filed in Los Angeles before having her petition dismissed.

It was later moved to a court in Orange County and Avenatti was the one who filed the papers.

In one document which was obtained by Fox News, Storie described an incident at their $17million home where she said her ex-husband became ‘verbally aggressive’.

She has since retracted her description of him and said the pair are trying to divorce civilly and in private.

She said there had never been any form of abuse – physical, emotional or verbal – between them and described him as a ‘good man’ of whom she has never been afraid.

Avenatti has also told DailyMail.com that he never abused his wife, the mother of his son, in any way.

The court document reads: ‘[Avenatti] is hot tempered and used to having his way – when he doesn’t he gets extremely loud and verbally aggressive. ‘

It goes on to describe an incident on December 17 when he arrived at their home to find Storie had changed the locks on their home.

‘I offered for him to be with [their son] for 9am to 7pm with a nanny present. He took umbrage with the request, showed up with his 15-year-old daughter and demanded access to the house…he immediately started yelling at me,’ she said in the documents.

In her statement in May – after telling Fox News that she was frustrated that their divorce had not yet been finalized – Storie painted her estranged husband differently.

‘Michael has in the past been a loving and caring husband and is a loving and caring father. I never called the police because I was never threatened with harm. I never sought to have him excluded from our home because I felt threatened or feared for my safety or that of my son.

‘Further, he has paid all child support and spousal support. He is a good man.

Storie added that journalists were trying to ‘harm him’ with a ‘defamatory story that has no basis in reality’.

Avenatti told DailyMail.com in May: ‘There was never any abuse, alleged or otherwise, by me in my relationship with my wife.’

‘There are a host of things that I could disclose relating to Lisa, her habits and the circumstances around her filing but I will decline to do so at this time as she is the mother to my son and I do not think it is appropriate to malign her,’ he added.

In May, Storie told Fox News: ‘I need to be divorced and if [Michael Avenatti] continues to paint the narrative, he can ignore our case! Everyone reports we are divorced. That does not help my goal to get a divorce.

Memo to black men: Stop voting Republican

1053877032Attendees listen to President Trump’s address during the 2018 Young Black Leadership Summit at the White House on Oct. 26, 2018.

 

BROTHERS, WE NEED to talk.

In the midterm elections, about 17 percent of black men voted to give Texas Republican Ted Cruz another term in the Senate. Around 11 percent supported Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, even though he did his best, as the Republican secretary of state, to disenfranchise more than a million voters, the majority of them African-American.

So, here’s my request: Black men, vote like black women.

Yes, black men vote consistently for Democratic candidates, but there is no more unshakable bloc than black women. More than 90 percent voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and against failed Alabama Senate candidate and accused sexual predator Roy Moore last year.

In Tuesday’s midterms, 94 percent of black women voters supported Beto O’Rourke, Cruz’s opponent; in Georgia, 97 percent of African-American women backed Democrat Stacey Abrams. (Her opponent, Kemp, only resigned as secretary of state Thursday, after turning his contest against Abrams into a hot mess of voter suppression. She has refused to concede.)

Only in Florida’s gubernatorial race did black men surpass black women in voting for the Democratic candidate — Andrew Gillum, the African-American mayor of Tallahassee.

Black women generally don’t vote against their self-interests. We vote as if our lives depend on it, because they do.

Much has been made — and rightfully so — about white women supporting terrible white Republican men at the ballot box. Two years ago, 53 percent of white women shunned Hillary Clinton for Donald Trump, unswayed by the infamous “Access Hollywood” audiotape or his other boorish or racist behavior.

For the recent midterms, the numbers were again telling. Yes, Republicans lost support among suburban white women, which allowed Democrats to regain control of the House of Representatives. Yet in key races in Georgia, Texas, and Florida, white women still overwhelmingly voted red.

As exit polls revealed demographic breakdowns and voting patterns, they again garnered a lot of social media chatter about white women as “foot soldiers of the patriarchy.” But the statistics that caught my eye concerned black men, and their double-digit support for Kemp and Cruz. Even in the Florida race between Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis, 8 percent of black men voted for DeSantis. That’s a low number, but still too high when one considers that DeSantis was endorsed by white supremacists and buoyed by racist robocalls.

How can so many black men still align with a party that, now more than ever, is unified by white identity politics?

During his campaign, O’Rourke spoke passionately in a black church about a young unarmed black man killed in his own apartment by a police officer in Texas. Cruz turned the O’Rourke speech into an attack ad.

One day before the election, Kemp tried to tie Abrams to the Black Panther Party, by tweeting a photo — plucked from Breitbart News — of armed members holding an Abrams sign. Kemp claimed this as proof that his opponent was “TOO EXTREME” for Georgia.

My brothers, don’t believe the hype. This Republican Party is not the party of Lincoln. This is unabashedly the party of white supremacy, migrant family separations, racist fearmongering, and Brett Kavanaugh. Even one-time Trump-hugger Kanye West has finally stopped parading around in his red MAGA hat, at least for now.

Recently, The Economist pondered what it would take to make a black voter a likely Republican. For me, this was the most compelling statistic: The younger a black person is, the more likely to skew to the right. Although older white voters tend to be Republican, it’s the reverse in black communities. That’s because older African-Americans have vivid memories of Jim Crow and segregation.

Meanwhile, Trump is courting young black conservatives. In October, he welcomed hundreds to a leadership summit, where they chanted, “Build that wall.” Yes, those were black people joining a racist president to keep brown people out of America.

Look, I get that black people aren’t a monolith, and shouldn’t be expected to hold the same beliefs and political leanings. But we’re in an era when Republicans have swapped their dog whistles for bullhorns. With hate crimes rising, you’ll still be targeted for the color of your skin, not the content of your politics.

You are supporting a man who places party (and, really, his own needs and wants) over country. He proudly calls himself “a nationalist,” and has repeatedly declined to tone down rhetoric fueling racism and anti-Semitism.

Often, people of color ask white allies to speak to their own friends, relatives, and coworkers about the damage Republican candidates and policies do to our communities. In that spirit, black men, I am speaking to you. Our concerns are your concerns — or at least they should be.

Don’t Care How, Marxism Now!

“Don’t Care How, Marxism Now!”

Free medical, vision and dental care. Free housing. Free college education. Guaranteed jobs. These are some of the items included in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ platform. Her constituency wanted these free things, and so she was elected to represent them in Congress.

She combines all this free stuff with open borders. In other words, everyone in the world is welcome to come here and enjoy her offer of free stuff. This is a sure recipe for economic disaster. People have to work in order to provide this free stuff. Will doctors work for free? No. Will homebuilders build housing for free? No. Will professors teach for free? No. So it means much higher taxes. It means more government force. The doctors, homebuilders, and professors may still work, but they will not be rewarded for their efforts. Instead, a Cortez-led government will take most of their money away and redistribute it in order to make things ‘fair and equal.’

Put her in charge of a chocolate factory and it would soon be producing rotten eggs.

The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks

This video lecture documents the pattern of heavy metals poisoning, medical experimentation, organ harvesting, covert fertility task forces and other tactics that seek to eliminate blacks from our planet. These genocidal tactics are carried out in the name of science and medicine via the following vectors: Food supply (laced with infertility chemicals, confirmed by the New York Times quoting a U.S. President’s science advisor) Water supply (heavy metals poisoning, as we recently witnessed in Flint, Michigan) Medical experimentation (Tuskegee, Guatemalan prisoner experiments funded by the U.S. government, etc.) Immunization campaign (covert sterilization of young women in Africa) Cancer (disproportionately affects people of darker skin color due to vitamin D deficiency) Abortion activities that target blacks in order to harvest baby organ tissue for use in vaccines — medical cannibalism

President Trump lost the Republican majority in the House, which was not unexpected. However, he gained more seats in the Senate, which was notexpected.

President Trump lost the Republican majority in the House, which was not unexpected. However, he gained more seats in the Senate, which was notexpected.

Now we’ll see how well he can navigate the choppy waters over the last two years of his first term. I expect him to sail toward an easy reelection in 2020.


Despite Pelosi and Maxine Waters’ combined insanity, there will be no impeachment. It would never get past the Senate, but we can expect them to ramp up the seasick ‘Russia Russia Russia’ narrative, for which they have no evidence at all.


It may not be smooth sailing, but Trump can employ his signature “Art of the Deal” when it comes to compromising with the Democrats as he continues to steer the Ship of State in the RIGHT direction.

Trump has:

The Presidency
The Senate
SCOTUS
Federal Judges
The American People

Pelosi Has:

A small majority in the House.

STD Awareness: Is There an STD That Causes Maggots?

girl

Update: In November 2014, another video of a maggot infestation in a woman’s genitals went viral. Many astute readers clued us in to some of the locations of this viral video, but after reviewing the websites, I declined to include an updated link because I found them to be pretty misogynistic and exploitative. The message remains the same, though — yes, it’s possible to get maggots in a vagina; no, it’s not directly caused by an STD; and no, it’s definitely not caused by a “superbug” strain of any STD. Continue reading to get the scoop on how maggots actually can infest genitals, and what we know about their connection to STDs.

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been confronted by two mysteries. The first was a collection of search terms that led curious Web surfers to our blog. Take a gander at them and see if you can tell why they raised my eyebrows:

New std that causes maggots.
What is the new std superbug that causes maggots.
Stds that cause worms.

There were dozens of similar searches leading to this blog, enough to make me take notice — and dig around.


Maggots infesting your genitals isn’t something you need to worry about.

 

 

 

First, the obvious: I Googled “STD maggots” and looked at what came up. While there was absolutely nothing to be found in the legitimate news media, there was a proliferation of recently published stories on websites that I’d never heard of, all containing the same unsourced viral video of someone removing maggots from someone else’s vagina. (Actually, I could only find stills — none of the websites I looked at had functioning video. Not that I was hugely motivated to find one that did.)

The accompanying articles described a female patient with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) said to be called “sex superbug,” an antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which caused maggots to grow in her vagina. While there is no STD formally called “sex superbug,” the original author was probably referring to antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea, which is caused by a strain of bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae that has evolved resistance to the drugs we use to kill it. Someone would have to track down the video’s source, however, to confirm that the subject actually suffered from gonorrhea in addition to the infestation of maggots.

Second, the nerdy: I headed over to PubMed to see what I could find in the medical literature. A search for “gonorrhea maggots” yielded zero results, which was a strike against the legitimacy of the recent viral video. However, I did quickly learn that it is possible for maggots to infest a vagina — a condition that’s called myiasis of the vagina, which itself is not an STD. Of course, there were only a handful of articles about this condition, leading me to deduce that it is very rare indeed. Of the articles that did turn up, very few were about adult humans, and only three involved STDs or possible sexual activity.

The first article, which had an English abstract but Spanish text, was published in a Chilean medical journal in 2009, and described the case of a young woman who found maggots in her urine. Due to the patient’s “record of use of intravaginal vegetables as sexual stimulator,” the authors speculate that she introduced larvae into her body by repurposing a vegetable as a dildo. As far as I can tell, this is the only reported case of possible produce-induced intravaginal maggot infestation, but all the same, it might be a good idea to wash fruits and vegetables before using them as sex toys.

The second article (warning: graphic photos) was written by authors affiliated with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and published in 2011. It describes the case of a woman with a large genital wart that was found to be infested with maggots, 20 of which were subsequently removed with forceps. Perhaps this is the source of the recent rumor about the “STD that causes maggots.”

The third article (warning: graphic photos) was published in 2002. This report comes from Brazil and details the cases of two teenage girls. The first patient had trichomoniasis, and more than 100 maggots were removed from a genital lesion. The second patient had genital warts as well as lesions that were found to be infested with around 65 maggots. The authors note that the patients had poor hygiene and speculate that flies were attracted to the odor and laid eggs in the genital area, where there were open sores.

Over the decades, there have been a few other scattered cases of vaginal maggot infestations published in the medical literature — occurring in patients with no reported STDs. It’s safe to say that this condition is very rare, and can occur in people with or without STDs. It’s also worth mentioning that there are many species of maggots, not all of which are capable of infesting human tissue.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, myiasis is more common in tropical climates, and people with open wounds are at increased risk. Some STDs can cause open sores, which themselves can make a person more vulnerable to subsequent infections. For example, you might have heard that some STDs, like syphilistrichomoniasis, and herpes, increase risk for HIV — this is because these STDs can cause open sores, which provide doorways for a virus’ easy entry. So, theoretically, open sores caused by STDs and other infections could create a home for maggots … But this possibility is so minuscule that it’s really not something you should worry about. Focus on safer sex practices, like using condoms and being screened for STDs with potential partners, but don’t fret about maggots!

Oh, one more thing. As I said at the top of the article, I’ve been confronted by two mysteries recently. The first was the connection between STDs and maggots. The answer to that is: not much of a connection at all, really, though in rare situations maggots can infest open wounds in the genital area. The second mystery is: How the heck did these search terms lead people to our blog? Prior to today, the word “maggot” has never appeared in any of our articles.

I’ll leave the mysterious machinations of Google’s algorithms to the computer experts.
