The ‘Audit’ Trying to Steal Arizona for Trump Just Got Suspended From Twitter

The official account of the Arizona audit has been shut down permanently by Twitter for violating its rules on “platform manipulation and spam.”

Just like those conducting and cheerleading the sham recount in Maricopa County, the Arizona audit Twitter account had been spreading lies and conspiracy theories about the election being stolen from former president Donald Trump.

What The Trump Era Taught Me About Covering Politics

In the fall of 2015, I was having drinks in Washington with a colleague at the time, now-MSNBC host Joy Reid. (I was working at NBC News.) Donald Trump was leading in the polls of the 2016 Republican presidential primary. But I was confident he would not win the nomination.

Very confident.

How (and why) Trump hopes to ‘sabotage’ the infrastructure deal

The good news is, Donald Trump, preoccupied for nine months with ridiculous lies about his election defeat, is starting to focus at least some of his attention on something new. The bad news is, the former president’s new interest is far from constructive.

Politico reports that Trump is now trying to “sabotage” the bipartisan infrastructure deal pending on Capitol Hill.

How Jeff Bridges Got His Start With Buddhism

From Chris Pratt’s occasional Bible-quoting Instagram posts to Julia Roberts’ converting to Hinduism during the filming of Eat Pray Love, plenty of celebrities are religious or at least have expressed an interest in spirituality. Being an entertainer — especially a touring musician or actor — can entail difficult working hours and a strenuous schedule, so it’s not hard to see why stars would turn to religion for support. One star who can relate to this sentiment is The Big Lebowski’s Jeff Bridges.

How to Make Hash – Cannabis Craftsmanship

How is hash made? Have you ever wondered how the hash you find on dispensary shelves is made or wanted to make it yourself? Recently we visited Sugarleaf Farm in Skagit County, Washington to find out how they make their pressed hash.

Mark Brinn, owner of Sugarleaf Farm and Funky Skunk Extracts, walked us through the steps he takes when concentrating cannabis into pressed bricks of hash. Using a modern take on traditional hash-making techniques, Mark creates a concentrate through a process that is entirely mechanical and does not use butane or any other solvents to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant.

Trump Reveals Extent of Pandemic Damage to Business Empire

Donald Trump’s empire has been hit hard by coronavirus closures, with revenue from his Washington and Las Vegas hotels down by more than half.

In his last financial disclosure form as president, Trump detailed the damage the pandemic has wrought, at a time when many tourism businesses are suffering from a lack of travelers. As president, the real-estate magnate resisted policies to slow the pandemic through mask-wearing, and insisted it remained safe for people to travel domestically.

Support for Marijuana Growing at the Federal Level

After five states — Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota — passed ballot measures for marijuana use last week, the drug will soon be legal in some form for 70% of the U.S. population. A third of the country won’t even need a medical excuse. But that’s not the surprise.

Mami’s Empanadas

Best empanadas I’ve had in my life and I’ve tried a lot of empanada places in Toronto – nothing comes close. Everything is made fresh daily so the flavours can vary. What’s available for the day will be written on a chalkboard in the front. All the empanada orders come with sauces, there’s 3 – a green spicy one, pink one (can’t recall the exact flavour) and the white garlic. I was biased towards green and white. You can get 1 empanada for $3 or 4 for $10.
