“Newton Electrical”…as in Thomas Jerome Newton, his character in The Man Who Fell to Earth.

The movie was (mostly) good 70s fun, but the Walter Tevis novel is fairly brilliant…well worth a read for fans 1960s science fiction.

A petition has been started to minority-President-Elect Mike Pence to ban the teaching of evolution in schools (link to petition in article).

It is obvious to us that Evolutionism-Darwinism is an anti-Christian atheistic dogma masquerading as science. According to renown philosopher of science, Professor Michael Ruse, himself an ardent evolutionist, there is no doubt that the theory of evolution represents a philosophical worldview: “Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity.”

Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Greg Abbot Meet Taiwan’s President in Houston (goes to The Voice of America)

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz said Sunday that China does not have the right to say with whom U.S. officials can meet, after he and Texas Governor Greg Abbott held talks with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-Wen.

The meeting happened in Houston where Tsai stopped on her way to Central America.

Cruz said shortly before the talks took place, the Houston congressional delegation received what he called a “curious” letter from the Chinese consulate asking them not to go forward with the meeting.

“The People’s Republic of China needs to understand that in America we make decisions about meeting with visitors for ourselves,” Cruz said in a statement. “The Chinese do not give us veto power over those with whom they meet. We will continue to meet with anyone, including the Taiwanese, as we see fit.”

The senator said the substance of the talks included boosting economic cooperation, and that increased access to Taiwan would help farmers, ranchers and small business owners in his state.

re: #16 Anymouse

China does this sort of thing every time someone meets with the Dalai Lama or any official of the Taiwan government, usually expressing how the meetings “hurt the feelings” of the Chinese people. Since Cruz and Abbott are in Beijing’s eyes low-level functionaries, not much will come of the meeting. Had Pres. Tsai met with Trump, OTOH, there would have been hell to pay. There was some speculation there would be a meeting between them during her transit through NY, but apparently it did not come to pass.

I’m more worried about the article in the Global Times telling Trump China would exact “revenge” if he abandons the One-China Policy. That could be anything from torpedoing his plans for Trump Towers in Shanghai and Beijing, to actual torpedoes in the water.

Well, it looks like Senator Cruz, the guy whose wife was dragged through the mud by Mr. Trump and was slandered that his father participated in President Kennedy’s assassination, seems to have lined right up behind Mr. Trump as a good little apparatchik.

This looks an awful lot like trying to slide the idea in there with “lower level functionaries,” and if the idea blows up Mr. Trump’s team can claim that was all Gov. Abbott’s and Sen. Cruz’s idea. (I’m guessing Trump’s team knew about it before it happened.)

We’re in a warming trend here. It got warm enough that it was above freezing. Then the temps dropped and all the streets turned to black ice.

Currently it’s 25F here with a slight chance of freezing rain and snow. Tomorrow a tropical day, high 51F.

A person on Tumblr has started a collection of Tweets from Donald Trump supporters called “Are You Sorry Yet.” It shows numerous supporters each with a pair of tweets, a before and after comparison.

Each pair is followed by a comment from the owner of the Tumblr page.

We tried to warn them …

While it is not my place to discourage people from voting, I suspect that these disillusioned voters, even if they would not vote for a Democratic candidate, might not vote for a Republican one in the future either.

A politician throwing voters under the bus can be enough to turn those voters against their party for the rest of their lives.

“The James Bond of Philanthropy” is the title of an article at the New York Times. It details Charles F. Feeney, who five years ago said he would give away his entire fortune of billions of dollars in philanthropic ventures by the end of 2016.

And he did almost all of it in secret, seeking no fame or fortune whatsoever. His name appears on no donor lists or buildings. He did everything he could to stay out of the limelight whilst giving away over $8 billion. He gave away the last of his fortune last month, a grant to Cornell University supporting students doing community service work.

His scheme to give away all his money was uncovered because of a business dispute in the late Nineties.

His net worth is around $2 million now, which is not a paltry sum, but considerably less than what he had when he built a thousand building on five continents (none with his name on them).

The article is fascinating, detailing some of the things this fellow has done with his life and his fortune.

Uber launched in Morocco’s economic hub in 2015 but was banned by local authorities after just one month.

It has recently found itself the target of increasingly brash protests organised by owners of Casablanca’s famous tomato red cabs.

“When you open Uber on your phone, you see drivers swarming around you like a virus,” said Nordine, a fifty-something driver sat on the hood of his taxi.

“And like a virus, you need radical solutions. Trap them.”

In one protest last month, dozens of taxi drivers posed as would-be passengers, flooding the app with requests before forcing the Uber drivers from their vehicles, much to the bemusement of onlooker

But it is compatible if you read Genesis as a story told to a child. The order of creation roughly coincides with evolution.

It is funny that I even find myself on the side of the Catholic Church, which sees no inherent conflict between Genesis and Evolution.

LOL I remember a year ago we landed at LAX on the same evening as the Golden Globes and then attempted to drive up Wilshire to Comstock to get to Beverly Glen (as the GPS instructed). It was about 11:00 PM.

Celebrity Gridlock. We didn’t see any actual celebrities that we recognized, but we did see people in evening wear hoofing it blocks away from the venue, and stretch limos backed up as far as the eye could see.

We were “content” to stay in the outside lane and “keep moving” about an inch every 5 minutes as traffic officers instructed.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Bitter cold here, though it’ll probably hit 60 by the end of the week, before dropping back to seasonable temps. Even when we get winter weather, it isn’t sticking around long.

I didn’t watch last night’s Golden Globes, but the president elect did; he apparently has so much time on his hands that he can be a media critic. Guess that’s what happens when you ignore requirements to make ethics filings, produce tax returns, and otherwise prepare for the transition to be president in a timely fashion.

Trump’s also tabbed his son in law to be a special adviser, but there’s no indication that Kushner has divested from his businesses or taken any action to avoid conflicts of interest.

This week we see a bunch of confirmation hearings, and the GOP wants to ram them all through, even if the ethics filings aren’t completed. It’s all about draining the DC swamp and replacing it with toxic sludge (including from the Meadowlands own Bill Stepien) so that DC will be a hot mess in short order.

When I was a kid, we had a dog and a stray cat that my mom would feed on the back stoop. She called him “Freddie the Freeloader” after the Red Skelton character. (Google it, young’uns) He was silver tabby with green eyes, but he didn’t care much for Dog, so we were never able to get him in the house.

He was also people-shy. The only way he’d come close would be if the storm door were between the cat and us, when we put the food dish down. If he saw any of us in the backyard, he’d take off like a shot.

I’m pretty sure this cat was dumped at my next door neighbor’s (my elderly neighbor employed a woman as a maid and this maid left her husband/boyfriend and took off somewhere and the ex-whatever left the cat at my neighbor’s door—yeah doesn’t make any sense to me either).

It makes me really sad and a little sick knowing that one of my good friends has had his ideology shaped by that little pissant.

Oh no, you’ve never said he’s a good guy at all. No one here has. I was just saying in general that this is a good reason that just because someone was “never Trump” doesn’t mean they’er good people. He does need an intervention along with Trump and his former bff Milo.

He is a pathetic little shitgoblin who loves to brag about how “religious” he is (remember he is the #1 target of the anti-Semitic alt-right) but holds extreme positions on abortion that are way out of the mainstream even for ultra-Orthodox Judaism.

They never are. I saw in my Facebook feed when one of my friends commented on his latest screed in his Facebook (attacking not agreeing with him on Streep) that the Trump Cult is fine with his pathetic attack of Streep and his denial about mocking the reporter. And of course their response is “why isn’t she saying anything about the teenager in Chicago?” Uh why isn’t and or better yet why didn’t any of you say anything about that kid in Idaho who got raped with a hanger. I mean both are awful but if that’s your response, you’re a jackass.

Again, I didn’t see the Golden Globes, because I had better things to do, but Trump apparently is such a media creature that he’s not only watching these programs intently, but is critiquing them and posting the 3am tweets in response.

Kudos to Streep for standing up to the bully/liar in waiting.

Trump lies - it’s what he does. He forgets or doesn’t care that he made fun of a disabled journalist. His supporters don’t care either. But it’s curious how they attack Streep for attacking Trump’s bigotry as being improper because she’s just an out of touch elite, even though Trump’s a supposed billionaire who lives in a gilded tower surrounded by all the faux excesses he can muster while shitting on the blue collar workers he claims to represent (wait, you mean there’s yet another suit against him for screwing his contractors/vendors on yet another project?)

Trump is the embodiment of an elite. An elite snobby douchebag who has never dealt with adversity. It amazes me too that people would attack Streep over this but then again, we’re talking about the same ideology that gave us Rick Santorum calling President Obama a snob for thinking all Americans should have some access to some form of higher education. These people have the most snobby ideology in the country but yet they think that’s snobby as is Streep standing up for the disabled.

Trump takes credit for Fiat Chrysler making another public announcement about plans for factories in the US and production changes.

Fiat had announced those changes a year ago, and the planning for these things is done years in advance because of the need to coordinate shutdowns, shifting assets, facilities, etc.

Had the media done their job, they’d check their own reporting (there’s Google, and there’s also their own proprietary databases) to see what they’d written previously. That’s what’s called reporting.

What the media is doing now is regurgitating Trump tweets, which are nothing but lies and taking credit for actions beyond his control.

Of course, his supporters don’t care since they’re too busy thinking that they’re winning.

I never felt like I had enemies before, except for psychopaths, sociopaths, and narcissists. I was raised by one so I learned how to deal with them and limit their damage to others and myself.

Now, one is going to be in the public eye, with whatever power we let him leech onto. By we, I mean us as the American people and Congress and the fact that we CAN take their jobs. As an example, the district that inflicted Tom Delay on you went blue in the election.

I have real enemies now. I have the same one I had but now they’re coming out of the shadows they lived in where they tore us all up like some kind of malignant toads. Their flying monkeys are my enemies. Their lies are my enemies.

My mind has shifted from “I know I can make them understand if we just try to talking it through” to “take them down. One opening at a time, each crack, take them down.”

I have enemies. They will not receive my hate or my emotion. They will receive my clinical evisceration.

The rest of the country will FINALLY learn these people exist. They will SEE what some people are capable of. They will suffer. So many already are…confusion, anger, fear, depression, self-doubt, and a general wave of greasy, black bile that faces them in the moments when they remember.

I have enemies now. They are causing this. It will continue. Do not let it drag you under. That’s their goal. Be strong and fearless and find the real enemies. They simply will not win.

In that particular article, they bury that:

Barra, who is on an advisory committee to Trump, told reporters that decisions about where to build specific vehicles are made “two, three four years ago”. Overall, she said of Trump, “we have much more in common than we have different”.

Barra is the CEO of GM.

So, these articles gloss over the fact that the decisions on where to build cars isn’t being made in relation to Trump, but announcements made now were done after years of prior planning (in the midst of Obama’s term and before Trump even announced running).

I understand what you’re saying but that’s not how the thought process works. Trump is not a “normal” bully.

He attacks because he enjoys it. It’s a game, a competition, and he is determined to win. He wants to demean and “take down” people because he enjoys the game.

He feels more than fine about himself, he thinks he is beyond special, a king in this world who can not fail, only be failed.

He considers Putin one of his very few equals in this world. That they’re both above the rest of us and breathe special air so he wants the connection to someone “good enough” for him to interact with.

I understand what you’re saying but that’s not how the thought process works. Trump is not a “normal” bully.

He attacks because he enjoys it. It’s a game, a competition, and he is determined to win. He wants to demean and “take down” people because he enjoys the game.

He feels more than fine about himself, he thinks he is beyond special, a king in this world who can not fail, only be failed.

He considers Putin one of his very few equals in this world. That they’re both above the rest of us and breathe special air so he wants the connection to someone “good enough” for him to interact with.

That’s Trump.

That bit in bold is where the crap is going to hit the fan.

They may be buds now, but Putin is smarter than Trump. Because there cannot be two great guys one is going to have to be made the lesser, one has to be the winner.

Anyone willing to bet on Trump?

I wouldn’t.

Therein lies the danger. What will Trump do to win, what will Putin do to show he can’t?

His family is active in Bergen County, so there’s lots of chatter about his “capabilities.” Going back to high school, people saw that he got preferential treatment because he was the son of a very rich guy. Helped get him into Harvard over more qualified kids from his school.

Between the Trump transition team’s infighting, incompetence, and high-profile resignations, any decisions that signaled even a modicum of stability for the country would come as a relief at this point. Unfortunately, the nascent Trump Administration isn’t inclined to calm anyone’s nerves. According to an official within the Department of Energy, this past Friday, the President-elect’s team instructed the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy to clean out their desks when Trump takes office on January 20th.

The NNSA is the $12 billion-a-year agency that “maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile.” It’s unclear when the two officials will be replaced.

Traditionally, all political appointees of an outgoing presidential administration turn in resignation letters effective on noon of inauguration day, January 20. But appointees in key positions—like the people who make sure our nukes work—are often asked to stay on in their roles until a replacement can be found and confirmed by the Senate, helping ensure a smooth transition and allowing our government to continue functioning. In fact, for the entirety of Obama’s first term and into part of his second, the NNSA Administrator remained a Bush appointee.

Trump, however, appears determined to immediately push out everyone who was appointed by Obama, regardless of whether or not he has anyone in line for the job. Or, as our source put it: “It’s a shocking disregard for process and continuity of government.”

re: #333 lawhawk

I’m not even sure this is about sabotage.

The GOP has developed an ethos is which it’s not just party over country, but where loyalty to brand is the highest morality and the prime mover of Truth. Trump displays an exaggerated version of the same base assumption.

This total replacement is the “right” thing to do, because their base premise is that only their in-group are truly moral people and true Americans. But their ethos is also structured that cynicism simply becomes a higher idealism, so the fact that this will result in shutting down in-house dissent *and* handing out spoils to the loyal is not seen as a misdeed or even a breach of the service to the citizenry.

Remember the almost total blocking of Obama appointments? This is the other side of the coin. And exactly the same mindset will be applied to stacking the courts.

At the bottom, the leaden core, is the idea that a bunch of Americans don’t count. Whenever you see one of these interviews where a politican or pundit ducks around the deeper, human ramifications of choices (such as ACA repeal). They can speak in coded terms about specific, stigmatized groups not counting (trans people, gays, blacks, Muslims)…but the list of factors that instantly make you Not A True Scotsman is long, and going to get longer.

Hearkening back to something I mentioned a few weeks ago…I hear people attribute statements to “coastal elites” that I hear in the suburbs of “flyover country.” That the micro- manifestation of this continuous legerdemain of who really matters. The minute you question their results, you’re subject to a kind of witch-finding test where there will be something that makes you not of the body (example: the NRO piece that decided that rural Trump supporters were meth welfare hounds—and thus secretly kind of liberal).

Aziz Ansari has a new website cataloging all the Lamarrgrets.

They’re upset for so many opposing reasons, that they only thing they have in common is stupidity, misguided-hatred, and a desire to scapegoat others for their own failures. The rightwing assholes better not ever talk about “personal responsibility” again.

Never mind that the Navy ship was operating under its rules of engagement, and starting a war with Iran isn’t part of those orders.

Ronald Reagan had no comment either. I have no problem with conservative entertainers speaking their minds as many have in the Obama years. I do draw the line when Nugent tells Obama to suck his gun but these people are citizens too, they’re allowed to express their concerns about our country and especially the butthead we elected.

One of my military friends posted about this on his FB earlier. I’m surprised; I don’t think he realizes that as an active duty soldier, he’d be one of the ones flying out if we started a war.

Funny how that was okay but what Streep said wasn’t. As I said, I have no problem with him or any conservative entertainer doing the same. That’s his right but it annoys me when conservatives whine about liberal celebs having opinions when their favorite President of all time originally started out as an actor. Oh and of course, they loved John Wayne for how Wayne viewed the left and Anti-War movement of the 60’s. Streep shouldn’t be beyond criticism obviously but I really don’t see how you can fault her what she said about Trump either.

I cannot believe he’s a Harvard graduate with how stupid and unintelligent he acts. I mean really? Likening affordable health care to furniture shopping? Jeebus.

I think he’s one of those people who go to a university to annoy the professors, and to get a piece of paper that they expect to make people put more credence in their already-existing, immune-to-education, indoctrination-based, beliefs. Ben’s father ruined any chance Ben ever had of being a reasonable, sane, or kind person. He was born to be a toxic clown, and it sucks for him even more than for the people who have to put up with his antics.

I don’t have a problem with celebrities being able to talk about politics and have a lot of people listen.

Keep in mind that there’s an entire entertainment niche, with dozens of influential and culturally important celebrities, that is devoted solely to telling audiences that all liberals are fundamentally Wrong, awful, stupid, and a priori illegitimate, with no pretense of their “performance” being anything other.

They don’t see hypocrisy because ultimately they don’t see this as a debate between equals, or a collaboration.

It is. To think that any elected official let alone a President elect would trust Assenge over our own Intel pros.

He also trusts Alex Jones. The President-Elect is unable to engage with reality, because in reality he’s a bad person, and in RW fantasy-world, he can pretend to be a hero, like the rest of the bigoted scumbags. He’s just as nuts as any victim of Conservative propaganda. We all know fuckheads like this, it’s just that this one will be President until impeached.
