We’re very lucky to have a President who cares enough to visit that prison cell, and (I’m sure) is very open to whatever thoughts and impressions arise from that visit.

I’m going to dwell on that thought for a while this AM, specifically not focusing on the predictable reactions from the haters and miscreant propagandists.

Snowden’s Ecuador Chances Look Increasingly Bad.

This guy is in really bad trouble. The people he counted on to be his allies are abandoning him.

Justice Kennedy Denies Motion To Halt Gay Marriage

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has denied a request from Proposition 8 supporters in California to halt the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses in the nation’s most populous state.

Kennedy turned away the request on Sunday with no additional comment.

My guess is that he just told Correa to look at that congress that they have to deal with and figure out what is going top happen if he keeps this stuff up.

If he does return and is arrested, I really hope the feds don’t pull the 24 hour isolation horseshit that the Army did with Manning.

You may not agree with their actions, but to lock them down like Hannibal Lechter? Definition of cruel and unusual punishment, IMO.

Yeah. I’d be inclined to let him post bond until trial. I really don’t like that whole Hannibal Lecter-supermax-24/7-lockdown philosophy for someone who isn’t, let’s say, actually Hannibal Lecter.

The Texas abortion SB5 debate just got weird:

Do you believe conjoined twins should have the personal freedom to kill the other?

I answered:

They should do it on pay TV.

Why I keep imagining the announcer doing the mexican spanish TV hype thing I don’t know.

The reactions from the RWNJs to that photo are both predictable and sad.

Also, this happened in Texas:

The Tea Party Will Use “Gandhi-Style Tactics” to Battle Fascist Pro-Choice Mobsters

The narrative that’s emerged on the right in the wake of the defeat of sweeping anti-abortion legislation this week isn’t that Senator Wendy Davis jiu jitsued a victory with a Frank Capra-worthy filibuster. Rather, it’s that the democratic process was hijacked by an unruly mob of out-of-state agitators whose cacophonous applause in the waning minutes of the special session made it impossible for the Senate to conduct business. That’s a much better fundraising pitch than, “Man, we really effed that one up.”

The general consensus is that, when a second special session starts Monday, Republicans won’t make the same mistakes. Democrats will fight, but the 20-week abortion ban and the strict facility standards that will force all but five of the state’s abortion clinics to close will become law. There are simply too many votes for it not to.

But the North Texas Tea Party isn’t just getting up for a legislative battle. They’re gearing up for war.

The group dispatched a thoroughly fascinating call to arms this afternoon, warning supporters that liberals are planning to bring “full mob rule” to the Texas Senate next week and asking members to “defend representative government.”

We’ve posted the bulk of the document below, interspersing quick fact checks at appropriate junctures.

Uh…are those “fact checks” in the article satire or not?? o_O I’d like to say yes because of the “Gandhi style” photoshop at the end, but if it weren’t for that, this would read like a verbatim Dim Hoft blog post…

It’s satire. The author is mocking the teabaggers.

And I errored in saying they voted to overturn Prop 8. They just rejected the defenders “standing” in court. In any event, these prop 8 lovers sure are sore losers.

32 Bulworth  Sun, Jun 30, 2013 12:25:32pm

So now the teabaggers care about representative government?

The same people who are complaining that the NSA is spying on Germans and foreign nationals over in Europe are the same folks who’d complain if the US missed the chance to spot a plot like 9/11 before it happened.

We’d just have to forget that there was a Hamburg, Germany cell that was ultimately involved in the attacks - Atta was among those participating. Imagine if the NSA had tools and the means to pick up this particular cell before they went into operational mode? A whole lot of things could have ended up differently.

Spying has been part of international relations from the time of the Bible (heck, doesn’t anyone remember that the Israelites sent spies into Israel to check up on who’s who and what’s what?). But now we’ve got a group of folks who think that any kind of spying is bad, so they’re going to reveal all the horrible details - which turn out to be not nearly as horrible as alleged.

And allegations of bad things are all that Greenwald and others are proffering.

Actually preventing attacks = Government tyranny/lies, but when there’s a successful attack? Government failed to protect us!

And here’s the thing that Greenwald and others don’t quite get.

Other countries spy on us. Does anyone honestly think that the UK, France, Germany, or Israel, let alone Russia or China aren’t spying on the US?

They are.

But here’s where things will get fuzzy. We’ve got good working relations with some of these countries. They spy on us, and we spy on them. And there’s a whole lot of information sharing going on. The CIA can’t spy and operate on US soil, but the French or Germans can spy on the US and Americans on American soil. The French (or anyone else sharing that intel with the US) can essentially circumvent US Constitutional protections and give US intel agencies intel on activities inside the US that could avoid the need for warrants in early stages of investigations (or provide the intel needed to secure warrants).

Won’t happen, because Snowden is still a civilian and Manning was and is Government Issue.

The UCMJ allows for things that civilian criminal law won’t.
