Breitbart “News” Hack John Nolte Suddenly Announces He Resigned Two Months Ago

One of the creepiest writers for Breitbart bailed out a while back
Wingnuts • Views: 61,368

For years he’s been one of the most unhinged writers at Breitbart “News,” but today we learn the reason why John Nolte’s byline hasn’t appeared at the site for two months:

Scanning through his Twitter timeline, it’s apparent that he left over Breitbart’s shabby treatment of Michelle Fields; he’s a delusionally enthusiastic Trump supporter so that wasn’t it, and he’s never been troubled at all by the blatant racism at the site, so that wasn’t it either.

So if anyone says Breitbart got too heinous even for John Nolte, that’s very unlikely. First, he was the one who helped make it that heinous, and second, “Heinous” is his middle name.

This is a guy who openly advocated violence against OWS protesters, who called for his political opponents to be “murderedmore than once, who posted a link to a white supremacist site on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, who called unmarried women “a needy, entitled, spoiled, crybaby, helpless lot,” who equated anti-Muslim lunatic Pamela Geller with Jesus, who equated the rainbow pride flag to the Confederate battle flag, who fiercely promoted every single fake outrage that bubbled up from the right wing fever swamp, and who engaged in absolutely blatant, relentless race-baiting for the entire time he worked at Breitbart.

So let’s not assume he resigned out of a sudden attack of scruples, because he has none. And his departure will have no effect on the 24/7 hate-spewing from Breitbart “News.”

So Nolte resigned roughly around the same time that Shapiro did, but neither of them mentioned the other’s resignation or said anything in support of such.

It would appear that there’s no honor among hack “journalists.”

Which is why I wonder if his solidarity with Fields was because of the shabby treatment or, as it appears with Shapiro, a disagreement amongst the Breitbartians over Andy’s “legacy.”

So, the religious freedom types are out this morning claiming that the court providing the Sisters a victory in today’s contraceptives case.

Let’s not forget a few basics about the case:
1) the ACA required them to file a single page form indicating that they providing a religious objection to providing birth control (so the insurers could provide it themselves);
2) the employees are paying for this benefit, which the employer is saying that they can’t have; and
3) this isn’t about religious freedom of the employer, but rather forcing their religious beliefs on employees who want nothing more than having access to benefits they are obligated to have under federal law.

Now, I had some yahoo in my twitter feed claiming that birth control is not health care. Yeah, he’s blocked for dumbassery. Objectively it is. This isn’t some opinion fished out of the sky. It is medication that doctors prescribe for any number of reasons.

It is undeniably health care, and if you want to claim otherwise, you’re blocked for dumbassery (which I did).

The form the ACA required isn’t some kind of religious test but a statement that the religious entity is utilizing the method allowed to them under current federal law to not directly provide the benefit.

All this is one more reason that employers should not be involved in the health insurance racket - they shouldn’t have that kind of power over their employees given that the employees are paying for these services and the employers are getting tax breaks to provide the health insurance.

Let’s be careful leveling attacks against Jane Sanders for anything except what she’s said during the campaign as an official staffer. Saying she’s the one driving the train mirrors a lot of the sexist attacks Hillary has endured over the years, especially as First Lady. Also even if it’s true it’s kind of pointless in that Bernie’s the one running so at the end of the day he’s the one responsible for the tone and conduct of his campaign.

Kentucky Primary is tomorrow.
While we’ve already had the stupid GOP caucus/circus, there is still one more chance to embarrass Rand Paul: by having him lose his Senate primary.
Unfortunately, I’m having a really difficult time finding out much about the other two guys on the the GOP ballot. One is a financial analyst (from Morehead, home of everyone’s favorite lunatic county clerk) and the other is an engineer.
The other primary race is for my state representative. There is no one on the D primary ballot, so whoever wins the GOP primary tomorrow will be the rep for my district. One candidate is an evangelical Christian pastor from Morehead who just loves Gov. Bevin (just shoot me…) and the other is a nurse practitioner/midwife (also from Morehead).

Just spitballing here, but I think I’ll go with the engineer for Rand’s seat and hope that Jim Gray wins the Dem primary and eventually Rand’s Senate seat.
For my state rep, not knowing anything other than what I’ve already typed about the two, guessing I’m going with the midwife over the pastor.

I hate Kentucky politics.

A classic example of trying to grow too fast causing bankruptcy. The plan was to quadruple the size of the institution. Now, while that may have been a good idea over the long term, I’ve yet to see where the college didn’t have space for gradual growth before building a whole new campus.

I’d guess this is a case where an “amazing opportunity” came up and there was a lack of thought about whether the plans were realistic or not.

CIA admits: We sent Mandela to jail

I’ll go even one better:

Court Backs Snowden, Strikes Secret Laws

In a major vindication for Edward Snowden — and a blow for the national security policy pursued by Republicans and Democrats alike — the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Thursday that the National Security Agency’s metadata collection program is unlawful. This is the most serious blow to date for the legacy of the USA Patriot Act and the surveillance overreach that followed 9/11.

The central question depended on the meaning of the word “relevant”: Was the government’s collection relevant to an investigation when it collects all the metadata for any phone call made to or from anywhere in the U.S.?

Then there’s the legal reasoning, which was equally striking. To get to the conclusion of unlawfulness, the Second Circuit initially had to find that anyone who has had metadata collected — that is, anyone in the U.S. — has the right to sue and challenge the statute.

The government said no one could challenge the NSA program except the telephone companies, like Verizon, who received the order. Its logic was particularly Orwellian. The Department of Justice argued that the Patriot Act demanded secrecy in reviewing challenges to the surveillance program. The secrecy, in turn, implied that the statute meant to preclude anyone from challenging the program under the non-secret provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, the catch-all statute for challenging unlawful government programs.

The Second Circuit wisely rejected what it called this “argument from secrecy.” It reversed a lower district court that had refused to allow the suit to proceed, and set the stage for an analysis of relevance under the statute.

Has anyone seen a Republican politician worried about a trans man coming into a men’s room? It all seems to be about trans women going into women’s rest rooms.

I guess they might be thinking they can handle themselves with a trans man should it occur. Maybe they should worry though because there might be some peeking going on that results in fits of laughter and tweeting about what was seen. It could hurt some reputations or confirm some existing suspicions.

Then again it might make all restrooms similar with no urinals in the men’s room.

Artists…

In all seriousness, I sometimes feel bad about how much art we consume is maybe result of a mental illness or other issues that go unaddressed. We seem to like our artists to be a little unstable/drug users/alcoholics, etc… The deaths of people like Cobain, Layne Staley, and more recently, Amy Winehouse, made me pretty cynical about record executives and their willingness to do what’s best for these folks instead of what’s best for promoting an image they are selling.

tbh, I don’t have an issue with the issue itself regarding the government monitoring of all things media and storing things away for a rainy day and how much latitude is allowed within the understanding of the law. It’s a damn good discussion worth having.

I do have an issue with claiming that Snowden is a hero because of his actions… when his actions comprise of… (at least as I understand them)

1) misleading co-workers to gain unauthorized access
2) capturing a cornucopia of data in violation of his own contract
3) not following any established whistleblower protocol
4) not even taking it to a Congressman/woman
5) fleeing the country
6) fleeing to an enemy country, not once, but twice

I can let the authorities deal with the actions, but still awaiting someone, anyone to stand up and have a discussion about the first in the public arena that doesn’t evolve around Snowden himself. Maybe there is some pick and shovel work going on in the background but if there is, the media sure as hell doesn’t appear to be interested.

The Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, with its lovingly manicured golf course, gently winding streams, stone bridges, 101-foot waterfall and an expansive clubhouse is, according to Donald Trump, reflective of “a true luxury lifestyle.”

Creating such a “memorable club” is not cheap: Trump wrote on a candidate disclosure form that the sprawling 147-acre private club bearing his name is worth “more than $50 million.”

But when it came time to value the property for tax purposes, his lawyers have argued that Trump National is really worth only $1.35 million. The proposed valuation has bewildered officials in the small town of Ossining, who said the new figure would cut Trump’s tax burden by 90 percent and dump that burden on everyone else.

All his property valuations are at the whims of marketing and tax expediency.

For marketing, the golf courses and skyscrapers are worth billions.
For tax purposes, they are worthless (particularly after depreciation for corporate tax purposes).

It’s not surprising that Trump’s claiming that his $50 million golf course is worth only $1.35 million. It’s all relative to him. He doesn’t care about anything other than profit to him, and he’s staked out a position to force the town into reducing their assessment on his property.

There’s absurd, and then there’s seriously absurd. That’s where Trump goes. We see it time and again.

$50 million v. $1.35 million, in the hopes of getting the town to come down significantly on his assessment. I’m curious what he’s using as comps in Ossining to get that valuation. Because a golf course is significant acreage, and there aren’t that many parcels with similar qualities.

Wild eyed reactionary SSPX nut Erin Manning sheds some dubious light on that whole “I’m a mother and you WILL LISTEN TO ME TALK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE UTTERLY UNRELATED!!!”

…eradicating all gender differences in society has long been a primary goal of certain queer theorists and other elite activists who posit that any cultural or societal basis toward heteronormativity at all is by definition biased and discriminatory to those fragments of the population who are not heterosexual, are not secure and happy identifying as a member of their birth sex, and who have, many of them, a rather deep loathing for anyone or anything that reflects the natural family.

The strawman punching begins…

This loathing, or even hatred, is especially expressed toward normal biological womanhood. It has been manifested by those radical feminists who insist that all heterosexual sex, even if consensual, is really rape and that all pregnancies are a form of slavery; it is manifested in the “pro-choice” contempt and dislike of the unborn child, and the disdain for the idea that abortion should be regulated at all, even if people are having sex-selection abortions to reduce the number of girls; it has been manifested by some in the gay community who have used the slur “breeder” to refer to the normal married heterosexual woman for decades, and who shriek in horror if heterosexual married couples with children move into their neighborhoods

Erin has been neglecting her meds…but you begin to see the mindset of that nutty mother of 12 in Target. The very existence of gay or trans people is an assault on their very notion of motherhood and its role in society. because…fuck if I know.

(and, ironically, this view of women as “breeder” is most prevalent among those gay men who have actually used a woman in this way, as a literal incubator for their IVF-manufactured child); it is seen among those who want to spread our contraceptive imperialism in cultures which still value mothers and children-and the more those cultures resist the idea that a woman is only valuable so long as she “controls” her fertility to the point of planned barenhood, the more the first-world women-haters insist that those cultures can only have antibiotics and surgical equipment when they agree to pass out the Pill and condoms; and it is seen in many other elements on the left which never lose the opportunity to denigrate and devalue traditional motherhood.

Natch, Erin wants all contraceptives banned because they are an assault on her somehow. Erin really hates contraceptives. Oh, and if you like them, you hate women because real women have 8 kids.

And now it is not a coincidence at all that actual women and girls are the ones who will be expected to step back and let the men take over our sex-segregated spaces. Sure, there are a few FtM transsexuals making demands as well, but most of the agitation and most of the forced “accommodation” is aimed at making women accept men in our bathrooms, locker rooms, changing areas, health clubs, sports teams, and anywhere else where previously “having a penis” disqualified you from membership.

Funny how she also makes fun of liberals who demand “safe spaces” and then goes onto scream that men (she simply does not believe in transwomen and she refuses to acknowledge us in any way other than invading men) are taking away her space.

Anyways, you can see how this kind of strawman building and begging the question goes into what the unhinged Target idiot was screaming about. Erin Manning is a long time pro.*

* If you really want to read her rants, you can catch her at Rod Dreher’s blog or at her own, which is called “And sometimes tea” redcardigan@blogspot or something to that effect.

Ex-GOP staffer says senators were ‘giddy’ over voter ID law

A trial over Wisconsin’s voting laws kicked off Monday with a former aide to a Republican state senator testifying that GOP senators were giddy over the prospect of passing the state’s voter ID law in 2011.

Todd Allbaugh, who worked at the time for then-Sen. Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center), said some senators expressed a lack of enthusiasm to take up the voter ID legislation early that year during a private meeting of Republicans. Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) then made the case for the bill, he testified.

“She got up out of her chair and hit her fist or her finger on the table and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to think about what this would mean for the neighborhoods around Milwaukee and the college campuses,’” Allbaugh said.

Schultz said they ought to consider what they would be doing to people’s ability to vote, according to Allbaugh. That elicited a response from Glenn Grothman, who at the time was a state senator and now is a member of Congress.

“Grothman said, ‘What I’m concerned about here is winning and that’s what really matters here….We better get this done quickly while we have the opportunity,” Allbaugh said.

He named two other senators — Leah Vukmir and Randy Hopper — as being gleeful over passing the bill. (Hopper lost a recall election months after the bill was passed.)

Me, being me, would have broken into a string of “hail Satan” and “shut the fuck up!”. I had to do that to a guy in Houston that came up to the bus stop I was at and started preaching. Needing to catch the bus, I couldn’t walk away. So I told him to STFU and move on. He told me he didn’t have to, it was a free country. So I broke into Hail Satan at the top of my lungs. And I have always been a singer, so the top of my lungs has volume. He moved on.

re: #136 Aunty Entity Dragon

This makes me think of a comment Thanos made on my most recent page. It was about Muslims, but it could be about anything the right-wingers use to scare people:

This isn’t just concerning to Muslims. It’s of concern to everyone because this same insidious agitprop campaign has kept our country at war for the longest period in our history. That’s cost us untold lives, untold treasure, and marred our country’s image forever.

littlegreenfootballs.com

That woman angrily shouting & waving her Bible immediately reminded me of every photo I’ve ever seen of angry Muslim hard-liners screaming & waving their Qur’ans. And it’s the same type of insidious agitprop that feeds it, y’know? It’s just the subject matter that’s different. With wingnuts in the U.S. it’s minorities, Muslims & LGBT stuff; in the Muslim world it’s the West in general, Israel in particular, etc.

The problem is extremist ideology being used to sow fear, suspicion, and hatred among people, not any particular race, gender, religion or geographical location.

re: #130 lawhawk

It’s not surprising that Trump’s claiming that his $50 million golf course is worth only $1.35 million. It’s all relative to him. He doesn’t care about anything other than profit to him, and he’s staked out a position to force the town into reducing their assessment on his property.

There’s absurd, and then there’s seriously absurd. That’s where Trump goes. We see it time and again.

$50 million v. $1.35 million, in the hopes of getting the town to come down significantly on his assessment. I’m curious what he’s using as comps in Ossining to get that valuation. Because a golf course is significant acreage, and there aren’t that many parcels with similar qualities.

According to the article, he paid $8M for the parcel at a foreclosure sale and spent $45M on construction. The only way it’s worth $1.35M is if he immediately mortgaged it to the hilt and removed that money. Which I’d have no trouble believing.

Just like his purchase of the West Side Railyards… he paid $100M, bragged in his book that it was really worth ten times that, then tried to declare it as $50M for tax valuation. The City walked into court with just a copy of his book for evidence. The judge laughed, and assessed the parcel at the value he’d said.

Somehow I managed to completely miss this Pew report in March. Looks interesting and I picked up some new vocabulary. PDF available at the link:

Israel’s Religiously Divided Society
Deep gulfs among Jews, as well as between Jews and Arabs, over political values and religion’s role in public life

Nearly 70 years after the establishment of the modern State of Israel, its Jewish population remains united behind the idea that Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people and a necessary refuge from rising anti-Semitism around the globe. But alongside these sources of unity, a major new survey by Pew Research Center also finds deep divisions in Israeli society — not only between Israeli Jews and the country’s Arab minority, but also among the religious subgroups that make up Israeli Jewry.

Nearly all Israeli Jews identify with one of four categories: Haredi (commonly translated as “ultra-Orthodox”), Dati (“religious”), Masorti (“traditional”) or Hiloni (“secular”).

Although they live in the same small country and share many traditions, highly religious and secular Jews inhabit largely separate social worlds, with relatively few close friends and little intermarriage outside their own groups. In fact, the survey finds that secular Jews in Israel are more uncomfortable with the notion that a child of theirs might someday marry an ultra-Orthodox Jew than they are with the prospect of their child marrying a Christian. (See Chapter 11 for more information.) […]

I’m pretty comfortable with my life, so I don’t need to tell others that the key to happiness, or a stable society lies in doing exactly what I did.

Having 10 kids to be a ‘real’ woman is as pointless as arguing that all sex is rape. You want to do the former? Go right ahead (no we don’t need the extra people, but it’s a really small subset of the population who want to do this.) Wish to remain celibate? Your choice entirely.

For their first 55 years, CIA analysts (not the operational guys) served a very useful function. They were almost always the voice of reason in debunking exaggerated claims of Soviet capabilities by the military, for example—they said there was no missile gap, and when the generals wouldn’t believe them, they built the U-2 and proved it.

They also belittled the fearmongering in the ’70s that Reagan rode into office. The neocons have hated them like poison for many years, and when they started debunking Dubya and Cheney’s lies about Iraq, they had to be silenced. The CIA has been completely neutered and broken to the saddle now, so like you say, there’s nothing left worth saving. Too bad….

re: #212 Wendell Zurkowitz (slave to the waffle light)

It is amazing how many people are unfamiliar with the US primary system, and now that they have decided to participate, are upset because they do not understand the rules as they have existed for years…

So much ^^THIS^^

I’m a registered Republican in Kentucky because where I live I would otherwise have NO VOTE that means a damned thing.
When I moved back here, I was so tired of 20 years of GOP politics in Illinois that I registered here as an Independent, thinking I was making some sort of political “statement”.
HAH!
That lasted just one year when I realized that I may have moved to a different state, but the nonsense was still the same.
I was in a closed primary state and EVERY local/state office was a done deal after the primary.

So, as an Independent at heart politically, I knew that purity doesn’t give you a voice in the political process.
Pick a side.
Pick a side where YOUR vote means something other than “purity”, because the winners are who are gonna be your representatives and if you want to bitch about how they are doing their jobs then you damned well better have been there voting RIGHT AT THE DAMNED START.

If you haven’t, then just shut the fuck up.

I’m old now.
Ain’t got time for purity tests.

And note this from the post:

Based on the county convention results, Bernie Sanders had 2,124 delegate slots to the State Convention and Hillary Clinton had 1,722 delegate slots to the State Convention.

In other words, Sanders had more than enough delegates to win this go around if those delegates had bothered to show up. They made the same mistake the Clinton delegates did at the county level. And now they are screaming that it is unfair that they be held to the same standard as Clinton was in Tier 2.

At this point, Bernie has lost. I’m waiting to see how he manages to gracefully extricate himself and urge his supporters to support the Democratic candidate. (Hahaha, I know.)

Which means that I don’t think there’s much need to haul the shit his wife has been involved with up, because the difference it makes is small.

True, but if it helps get him out one week earlier I’m okay with it, just because of the damage he is now selfishly inflicting on the Democratic Party.

And now they are screaming that it is unfair that they be held to the same standard as Clinton was in Tier 2.

Not quite. The reason Sanders won at the county level is they exploited a loophole that allowed unelected delegates to vote if elected delegates and alternates didn’t show up. They flooded the Clark County Convention with so many of these unelected delegates that it was reportedly difficult for Hillary’s elected delegates and alternates to even get inside the auditorium (although that last bit could well be bullshit.) In any event they focused on this loophole while Hillary’s team focused on turning out the district level named delegates.

That loophole didn’t exist at the State level, and Hillary’s team got more of her delegates to show up and her delegates were better prepared for the credentialing committee.

re: #159 sagehen

According to the article, he paid $8M for the parcel at a foreclosure sale and spent $45M on construction. The only way it’s worth $1.35M is if he immediately mortgaged it to the hilt and removed that money. Which I’d have no trouble believing.

Just like his purchase of the West Side Railyards… he paid $100M, bragged in his book that it was really worth ten times that, then tried to declare it as $50M for tax valuation. The City walked into court with just a copy of his book for evidence. The judge laughed, and assessed the parcel at the value he’d said.

One of the Westchester golf courses is/was involved in neighbors’ civil lawsuits concerning groundwater pollution. (Badly-managed greens can be a chemical stew.) Can’t swear it’s Trump’s, but there aren’t all that many there. Maybe some journalistish-type person could take a look, after they’re done sniffing toilet seats at Target.

Interesting… They have lots of other good cooking shows too.

Our internet is a small local company and we do have data limits so we don’t stream stuff. Worth it not to have to deal with Comcast, which is our only other option. We have the lowest tier plan were starting to exceed our limits pretty regularly (though not by huge amounts) so we called to move up to the next tier, and they said, “Oh, don’t worry about it. The limits are there to make sure the equipment can handle the load-the part you’re on has lots of extra bandwidth available. We’ll let you know if there’s a problem.” Which on the one hand means we have undying loyalty to them. On the other hand, we don’t like to exceed our limit by more than about 25% or so which is a bit limiting.
