So, apparently, CNN is trying to run with this beaten horse:

Kaine splits with Clinton on some Trump supporters as ‘irredeemable’

Tim Kaine split Sunday with running mate Hillary Clinton over how the Democratic nominee had characterized Donald Trump’s supporters during a fundraising event earlier this month.

Weld—Webb —only two letters different…and Webb only said he wouldn’t vote for Hillary (he’s such an asshole—and remember, the right-wingers describe him as a “Democratic Icon/Legend”—yeah, sure) but hasn’t totally committed to voting for Trump, so…

Questioner: You’’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, it’s belly baking in the hot sun, beating it’s legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

Donald Trump: How hot is the turtle?

Questioner: What?

Donald Trump: Would I want to fuck the turtle?

Questioner: it’s a desert tortoise, you probably wouldn’t think of it in those terms.

Donald Trump: In the desert? Well, there’d be a huge wall, so I wouldn’t see the turtle.

Questioner: You’re sort of missing the point. You see the tortoise…why are you not helping?

Donald Trump: Well, it’s probably a rapist turtle that hates America. Also, I have lots of better turtles. The best. Very classy. I am great with turtles. I’m going to make them pay for the wall.

Questioner: But this one is on its back. Struggling.

Donald Trump: Unless it’s at least as hot as my daughter I’d yell “the wall just got 10 feet taller” until it went away. I love turtles. All these good people who come to my rallies aren’t there to see me be nice to turtles, though.

Tumblr User Says He Planted Chelsea Bomb In Protest Of Anti-LGBT Discrimination

I hope it’s not. The LGBT community doesn’t need the added stigma of being labeled terrorists. If true, just like the members of every other minority group get blamed for the actions of a few, they will be broad-brushed & scapegoated.

Edit: Except it will be exponentially worse for them, since they have long been considered “other” and have only recently begun to be accepted by society at large.

I’m guessing doesn’t really look much like a manifesto.

Karl Marx, he wrote a manifesto. Put some thought and intellectual heft into it; on the other hand, this Tumblr thing looks more like a third grader could have written it.

Elliot Rodger did a short but chilling YouTube video and sent a 140-page manifesto to a radio station. He also put thoughts (as addled as they were) into it.

Seems to me someone going on a criminal rampage writing a manifesto tries to lay out as logically as possible (though the logic may only be visible to them) the reasoning for their act, and the selection of their targets.

While I wouldn’t just write it off, by itself doesn’t mean much (could also be a troll).

S/he claims to be doing this for the “oppressed, for “under classed and underprivileged people,” and to be striking out at “republicans in general” who are supposedly “all cisgendered privileged white people.”

So a SJW committing terrorist acts on behalf of various minorities? How convenient that such a thing would play right into the hands of the Orange Vulgarian and his white supremacist fan club—it’s a perfect caricature of everything the RWNJs hate (and say) about liberals. And the election is in what, like 50 days?

Reince Priebus Hints At Penalties For Former GOP Candidates Who Don’t Endorse Trump

“There is a ballot access issue in South Carolina. In order to be on the ballot in South Carolina, you actually have to pledge your support to the nominee, no matter who that person is. What’s the penalty for that? It’s not a threat. It’s just a question that we have a process in place.”

Oh, Reince—I’ll bet Lindsey Graham is just trembling in his boots at your tough talk. (Weird that Reince doesn’t even mention Graham, who’s been most outspoken against Trump, but uses SC as his example)

Now, Cruz and Jeb might be a little nervous, but I doubt it; Kasich would just tell them to go fuck themselves, and anyone else would probably laugh in Reince’s face.

S/he claims to be doing this for the “oppressed, for “under classed and underprivileged people,” and to be striking out at “republicans in general” who are supposedly “all cisgendered privileged white people.”

The only incident of this nature I ever heard of was the 2012 Family Research Council shooting:

Law enforcement officials said that the suspect, 28-year-old Floyd Corkins II, a resident of nearby Herndon, Virginia, had served as a volunteer at a LGBT community center. The FBI and the Metropolitan Police Department investigated jointly “to determine motive/intent and whether a hate crime/terrorism nexus exists.” During his FBI interview Corkins was asked how he chose his target. His response was “Southern Poverty Law, lists…uh…anti-gay groups. I found them online”.

So…if the culprit in yesterday’s bombing had similar motives, how does the choice of target remotely make sense?

Oh, it’s definitely pure speculation on my part, I just don’t buy the whole “angry gay person” thing. Surely people in the LGBT community would realize that any of their members being involved in terrorist attacks would be used as a cudgel against them.

I find it extremely difficult to believe that an LGBT person would look at how Muslims have fared after being associated with terrorism and think, “Hey, that looks like a great way to win hearts & minds—I’ll try that!” ಠ_ಠ

Well, whoever was en route to Turkmenistan, they’re ready for you:

A view of the new international airport terminal outside Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016. The capital of Turkmenistan, a country largely closed to outsiders, has opened a $2.3-billion terminal at its international airport in the shape of a flying falcon.

Strict visa regulations in Turkmenistan mean relatively small numbers of tourists and businessmen ever visit the isolated, energy-rich Central Asian nation. In 2013, the Guinness World Records recognized Ashgabat as having the greatest density of marble-clad buildings—estimated at more than 540. Many official buildings are noteworthy for literal or eccentric designs, including the state publishing house, which is in the shape of a book. (Turkmenistan’s best-known tourist attractions include the “Gates of Hell.”)

Wait, what? If a pressure cooker bomb was blown up, wouldn’t any attached note be blown up too?

I would think if you wanted a “note,” you would post it to the Internet or mail it to a radio station or something like that. Leaving it near your putative explosive means it gets blown up too.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Obviously, there’s quite a bit of news about the events in both Chelsea NY and Seaside NJ. The FBI, JTTF, DHS, and NYPD are all trying to figure out what happened, and who was behind it.

My own theory about the events in Chelsea have more to do with the gentrification of Chelsea than on a single issue like the LGBT although the two could be intertwined. That there was a device left at a construction site and another one a few blocks away suggests someone local who is familiar with the neighborhood.

Not sure what was going on in Seaside NJ.

While there are right wingers who are swearing up and down this is terrorism, there’s another reality that the right wing doesn’t want people to admit.

There are thousands of bombs, incendiaries, and other types of arson/violence that occur every year. Some are insurance scams. Some are hits.

For the 20 year period from 1983 to 2002, there were… get this… 36,000 bombings over that period:

There were 21,237 (58.8%) explosive bombings, 6,185 (17.1%) incendiary bombings, 1,107 (3.1%) premature bombings, and 7,581 (21.0%) attempted bombings. For explosive bombings with known motives, 72.9% of injuries and 73.8% of deaths were because of homicide. For incendiary bombings with known motives, 68.2% of injuries were because of extortion and revenge, and 53.5% of deaths were due to homicide. Private residences accounted for 29.0% of incidents, 31.5% of injuries, and 55.5% of deaths. Government installations accounted for 4.4% of incidents but were the site of 12.7% of injuries and 25.5% of deaths. In bombings with known materials, nitrate-based fertilizers accounted for 36.2% of injuries and 30.4% of deaths, and smokeless powder and black powder accounted for 33.2% of injuries and 27.1% of deaths.

There’s been a decline in these incidents, just as there’s been a decline in crime overall, but I don’t have specifics through the current year at hand.

And yes, arson/incendiaries are included in with bombings, so there’s overlaps with intentional attacks.

But I think that it’s interesting that the law enforcement statements so far have said that the NYC incident isn’t terrorism, which suggests a more localized purpose/reason, as opposed to the lone wolf attempts such as the Times Square bombing attempt, the Boston bombing, etc.

Yup. There’s reports that there are some similarities between the NJ bombing and the NYC incidents, namely in the appearance of old-style flip-phones being used. So, it’s real early to try and make generalizations.

Of course, there’s folks who’ll try and link those and the stabbing spree in MN, which IS claims responsibility for. So far, no one has credibly taken credit for the bombings in NYC metro though.

One of Nick Searcy’s right wing suck-ups posted this highly misleading section of the biased Wikipedia entry for LGF:

The editor who added this section is someone who has a big axe to grind against me personally for some reason, and the claims in it are false. The posts about Flight 93 were deleted, this is true, but I absolutely did explain why I did it — because I was seeing right wing sites citing those posts as evidence that the Flight 93 memorial was a secret Islamic shrine, even though I had long ago renounced this nonsense. I deleted them because I did not want to be responsible for spreading this bullshit any further; in other words I did it to prevent misinformation, not to hide anything. And they even link to a comment in which I explained all this!

The same is true about the founder of the Park 51 project; my original post was citing information I had learned long ago was bullshit, and I corrected the post to avoid spreading misinformation, not to hide anything.

I once posted in that Wikipedia discussion section, asking why these misleading entries were included in the LGF page, when no other blog seemed to be getting the same treatment, scouring old posts to see which had been deleted or edited. Nobody ever gave me a good answer, but it’s very clear this entry was written by someone heavily biased against LGF. I gave up trying to get this corrected long ago, because it was a no-win situation when one of their editors was responsible for the false info.

The Daily News coverage is not bad. A series of on-site photos show folks with shrapnel wounds from small bits of metal, but my guess that it was more of a noisemaker than one the Boston Marathon bombs. Those little horrors were loaded up nuts, bolts, and ball-bearings, which is why they caused so very many horrendous injuries. Since there was only one serious injury- a single person who was not immediately treated and released from Hospital- and since surveillance video indicates that there were pedestrians and vehicles almost immediately adjacent to the point of the explosion, I’ll opine that this was for demonstration purposes only. Big boom, not mayhem.

It could have been so much worse.

No, Alex, he sees 5 moves ahead of you and cuts you off before you’ve realized you’ve been stopped cold. He’s a zen master and you’re just a piker who only plays to the race-baiting brain.

There are no yard signs where I live.

I think as far as Californians may be concerned, either there is not an election, or November is beyond the mind-horizon.

I saw a YUGE Hillary sign on a fence in Vista.

Then next door to my friend’s house a Daryl Issa sign lawn sign.

I like that Hillary’s pinned tweet is “What Trump just did is a disgrace.”

It’s dated 9/15, but could pretty much be applicable 24/7.

I’ve seen maybe two deranged wingnut displays on vehicles here (Kent WA), no yard signs. Couldn’t prove the cars were local. [pet peeve] Used to be, the first letter of a license plate would tell you where they were from. No more. [/pet peeve]

It’s going to go at least 80/20 Clinton, so why bother, I guess.

As Alex tapdances his way to obscurity (I wish), just want to add that I’ve never thought of Obama as aloof. He is constantly photographed smiling, embracing others; he has a wonderful sense of humor; he’s emotional in situations calling for emotion. Where the fuck did they even come up with this aloof bullshit? (Or is it wingnut for “uppity?”)

Absolutely, it is. He’s not doing his best Stepin Fetchit routine at all times.

I’d much rather they bought a middle-age crisis roadster convertible than decide on the future of our country. (Do people still say roadster?)

Happy Birthday!

Those who care still say roadster. Those who really care say Speedster:

For me, the best of all worlds would be to hang out with superb reporters like Joe Conason, Pete Hamill, and Wayne Barrett and listen to them telling tales about where the NYC bodies are buried. Oh, and Rose Schaap will be there because she knows a thing or three, as well as just being a cool NYer and all-around neat person.

Emily might very well have been hiding in plain sight on my farm (next door to Mason County KY).

One of the historically verified facts about my farm is the hiding slaves in plain sight, waiting for the Ohio River to freeze and the Underground Railroad conductors to move passengers when it was safe to do so.

One of my favorite genres is historical fiction and I just realized that I am sitting on a huge trove of historically based factual documentation to write this novel from all sides.

oh. my.
this could be the one thing I’ve been waiting for.
