Why is ICE and Homeland Security worried about fake Superbowl memorabilia?

How is this their job?

Huge pileup on NY I90 in the Lake Erie snowbelt

I don't care where you live, or where you've been. Unless you have experienced it you have never seen snow like Lake Effect. If the winds don't shift you can get FEET dumped on you in a matter of hours.

I went to college on the very edge of that region my first two years. It wasn't uncommon to wake up every morning with a fresh 8-12 inches for weeks at a time until the lake finally froze over.

This is our media today. Disgusting and sick.

https://www.thewrap.com/usa-today-drops-columnist-cheri-jacobus-tweet-convicted-pedophile-jeffrey-epstein/

"USA has dropped columnist Cheri Jacobus after the the political strategist and frequent TV pundit insulted Republican consultant and Trump ally Michael Caputo’s daughters and suggested that they be used at “parties” by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

“Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a spokesperson for the company told TheWrap Thursday evening.

“An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA TODAY,” the spokesperson added. “We have asked her to remove the USA TODAY affiliation from her bio.”"

Maduro Tries to Sanction Guaido, Fails Hilariously

It's actually kind of funny. Block access to something that is worthless, Venezuelan money.

https://www.caracaschronicles.com/2019/01/30/maduro-tries-to-sanction-guaido-fails-hilariously/

The bottom line:

snip
"These measures (freezing assets and the prohibition to leave the country), terrifying as they may seem elsewhere, are laughable in Venezuela.

And why are they meaningless? Because chavismo. Chavismo created a system based in destroying the value of money and eliminating economic liberties. They quashed the local currency, and turned banks into simple intermediaries used to obtain basic staples. And so all they could do is bar Guaidó from using something worth nothing. Chavismo left Venezuelans with nothing to lose."

snip
"And regarding the prohibition to leave the country, maybe the caretaker President of Venezuela is not contemplating the idea of leaving the country he’s sworn to take care of. Just sayin’."
