As noted last night, Dubya had to work 2 years to get to where Trump has arrived in only a week.

Wow, look at that Boston crowd. Amazing.

Priebus says as long as they aren’t “awful people”, they can come in.

So, when are you and your boss leaving?

All we need is one Islamist terror act (or one that can be pinned on them) in our country and this whole crashes to earth and becomes a moral victory for Team Trump…

How many people do you actually think are going to rally to Trump?

Enough to drown out the discussion.

My mother is at O’Hare today (she works as a musician). She told me last night on the telephone if a protest were to start at the airport again, she would join it.

Yay, Mom. Seventy-six years old and still a hippie commie protester.

Me, where I live protesting is somewhat a moot point. Something something several light years from civilisation.

That said, I have Internet service so I can agitate on-line to those I know who live in more populated areas, like a town of two hundred or larger.

I just posted an essay to the Nebraska-W Iowa Mensa group. That group has turned into a hotbed of political activism - and most of the members live in Council Bluffs, Omaha, and Lincoln.

Basically, it is an essay pointing out that it is times like these that test the nation’s mettle. Which side will you be on.

(Behind the privacy bars, because it is somewhat long.)

I see they have their talking point. “It’s overblown, only a tiny amount of people, lieburl media conspiracy, fake news!!”

I’m at a loss right now. I know only that if they don’t get pushed back hard on this bullshit right now, the Bannon administration will learn from this and find new weasel ways to destroy things next week.

My trouble is that I don’t know who can push back, besides the Judiciary. What checks are there on executive over-reach? Some motion made, or coalition within, the Legislative? Who can take a rolled-up newspaper to the nose of these dirty dogs?

All we need is one Islamist terror act (or one that can be pinned on them) in our country and this whole crashes to earth and becomes a moral victory for Team Trump…

While the majority of Americans will believe that we fucking asked for, and deserved, such an attack.

One of the most shallow moral victories in the history of histories.

More evidence of a skewed GOP map in Wisconsin

Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton finished in a near tie statewide, with Trump prevailing by roughly three-quarters of a percentage point.

Yet Trump led Clinton in 63 of the state’s 99 Assembly districts, according to a review of state election returns.

And he led her in 23 of the state’s 33 state Senate districts.

Those numbers reflect the baked-in advantage — and virtual lock — the GOP enjoys in the battle for control of the Legislature, thanks to a one-sided map.

In effect, while the state overall is “purple” in its makeup, most legislative districts are “red.” Because Democratic voters are packed into fewer districts, the vast majority of seats are more Republican than the state as a whole. That means that whatever share of the vote the GOP wins in statewide races for president or governor, they are likely to win a much higher share of legislative seats.

Duterte asks US not to store weapons in Philippine camps in case war erupts with China

MANILA, Philippines

(AP) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte asked the United States on Sunday not to store weapons in local camps under a defense pact, saying his country may get entangled if fighting erupts between China and the U.S.

Duterte said in a news conference that he would consider abrogating a 2014 defense pact that allows U.S. forces to temporarily station in designated Philippine camps if the Americans build weapon depots in those encampments.

“They’re unloading arms in the Philippines now,” Duterte said, identifying three areas where U.S. forces were supposedly bringing in their armaments, including the western Philippine province of Palawan, which faces the disputed South China Sea.

“I’m serving notice to the armed forces of the United States, do not do it, I will not allow it,” Duterte said in the televised news conference after meeting top military and police officials

Even this asshole is saner than Trump.

1. We have to push our congresspeople.
2. We have to realize we’re going to have a lot of these fights, and they are going to last a long time.
3. We’re going to have to find a way to fix #23. Republicans holding onto power when they shouldn’t be able to is to me the root cause of everything going on.

re: #22 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

Georgia lawmaker shot behind adult entertainment store; was carrying thousands of dollars in storm relief money.

It’s okay. He’s Republican. Means that Jesus can forgive him and heal him and it would be un-Christian of us not to do the same.

I’m not Christian so it’s not a problem for me.

I’m sure he goes to church every day and twice on Sundays. Just leave him alone. What he does in his private time is nobody’s business unless he’s not white or a Christian.

There’s a whole unwritten Constitution: rules about what you do and do not do. Trump is shredding this in the executive branch. The problem with having Congress call him on it is that the Congressional Republicans have been doing the same with the unwritten legislative rules since 2009, and it’s hard to see what would cause them to stop now.

A Mexican who comes here to build a better life for his family is more American than a native who is upset that he already does not have it better than his parents…

Charles Johnson  Jan 29, 2017 • 11:41:33am

OK, folks - I actually have a system now where I could provide two-factor login at LGF, if people are interested in making their login information much more secure.

We already have lots of layers of protection against passwords getting hacked, but this would take it to the next level and make it nearly impossible for a hacker to impersonate you at LGF.

This system would work not by sending an SMS to your mobile phone, but by using an authenticator app. An authenticator app gives you a six-digit code that you’d enter when signing in, in addition to your password. The big advantage of using an authenticator app is that you don’t even need to have a cell phone connection. There are quite a few authenticator apps available for all kinds of desktop and mobile devices.

Setting up the authenticator app is extremely simple - all you do is use your phone’s camera to scan a QR code displayed on your screen. When it’s all set, your account is safe even if someone gets your password somehow.

So… anyone interested? It would be an optional feature, of course. (I think I might implement it just for myself even if no one else is interested, because password hacking is becoming rampant on the web.)

OK, folks - I actually have a system now where I could provide two-factor login at LGF, if people are interested in making their login information much more secure.


So… anyone interested? It would be an optional feature, of course. (I think I might implement it just for myself even if no one else is interested, because password hacking is becoming rampant on the web.)

I you find me posting in support of DT and his policies, you know that I have been hacked or am being held at gunpoint…

The reason why that private comment didn’t work was because it was so long it was overflowing the limit of an HTTP GET request. The private comment feature now uses POST instead, which has no real limit on length.

Some background on why “Jews were one of many victims” is so shocking: Soviets used this as propaganda for decades

One of Yevtushenko’s most iconic works, Babi Yar, was about a mass slaughter of Jews by Nazis in the USSR that went almost unnoticed and unremarked.

For some reason parts three and four don’t show. The privacy button disappears when I click it for parts three and four.

Aw, hell, I’ll just put ‘em out in the open.

—- —-

Part three of essay:

The moral mettle of the nation will be tested in the coming weeks. Already the administration tried (and failed) to ban people for religious and political views (against Trump) from entering the country yesterday, deporting some to certain death, tearing apart families, &c. Border crossings with Canada turned away people as well. Canada is outraged that one of Prime Minister Trudeau’s cabinet members was banned from the USA.

Massive protests at airports across the nation were organised, lawyers organised to protect rights of those detained, and an emergency appeal in Federal Court suspended the Executive Order implementing the ban. At least for now, the courts are still upholding the Constitution. (And yes, the Bill of Rights applies to foreigners on our soil as well, despite what fools on the political right say.)

Where are all the conservative reactionaries that decried every executive order from President Obama (the president who issued the fewest since Woodrow Wilson)? They are cheering Donald Trump on. How about the times President Obama went out golfing? (Trump owns golf courses around the world and plays golf as well.) They even whinged about President Obama wearing a tan suit (though Trump does the same).

Yeah, those conservative reactionaries are demanding a political opponent (Hillary Clinton) be jailed for (pick a fever dream of conspiratorial nonsense). The are demanding jailing a political opponent without charges of a crime.

We have been here before. In the First Red Scare, socialist politicians were arrested and jailed. In the Second Red Scare, Senator Joe McCarthy (R-Wisconsin) accused people all the way up to President Dwight D. Eisenhower of being secret communists on the floor of the Senate. FBI Director Herbert Hoover used the power of the FBI to go after left-leaning political organisations and civil rights groups. They were eventually all defeated.

Which churches, which politicians, what press outlets, and which people will stand in the face of those who seek to tear our nation apart for profit, a fascist kleptocracy? Right now, the only thing helping us is almost none of these fools have any clue how government works. (Right now we have a kakistocracy, or government by the least qualified and most corrupt.)

Who will these fools appoint to the empty Supreme Court seat? Representative Louie Gohmert (R- Texas 1st), also known as the Dumbest Man in Congress (see Google again)? Why not? He is a religious fanatic and was once a Federal judge (shudder). He’s a wonderful apparatchik.

Politicians, military personnel, civil servants, and political appointees are all required by oath or affirmation to uphold and defend the Constitution. I have lived under that affirmation as either a US Navy enlisted seaman or a politician all my adult life. I did not affirm to uphold a general, a president, a corporation, or a minister. I affirmed I would uphold the Constitution for the reason given at the end of President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address during the Civil War:

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

3. We’re going to have to find a way to fix #23. Republicans holding onto power when they shouldn’t be able to is to me the root cause of everything going on.

There is a case from Wisconsin likely to end up in the Supreme Court which could make gerrymandering unconstitutional. Fingers crossed!

“First they came for the….

Exactly. I heard the same argument against equal rights for same sex relationships when I was growing up. Oh, they’re only a tiny minority. So, their lives don’t matter, then? You can treat them as less than human, using the same arguments that Nazis used against the Jews, in the service of your so called “morality”? That sort of argument can fuck right off.

At this point, I can only assume Congressional Republicans are hoping that all of this will “just blow over,” that somebody is going to step in and save them from Trump. They were betting on the courts stepping in, slapping Trump’s hand, and he would back down. But he hasn’t, he doubled down and effectively dared the courts to enforce their ruling. So who is it that they expect to save them from him and his wrath? Because if he can tell the courts today to STFD, then tomorrow he’s going to tell Congress that he doesn’t need them in order to pass laws. Who do they look to then, the very courts that they’re silently agreeing have no power over him?

The math behind Republican gerrymandering hasn’t changed — they remain vulnerable to massive Republican losses if events sufficiently eat into that “just safe enough” Republican margin that is used to construct the gerrymander.

Of course to exploit this, we’d need to see the Democrats take up the banner of the Resistance and implement an effective 50 state strategy.

re: #40 Charles Johnson

OK, folks - I actually have a system now where I could provide two-factor login at LGF, if people are interested in making their login information much more secure.

We already have lots of layers of protection against passwords getting hacked, but this would take it to the next level and make it nearly impossible for a hacker to impersonate you at LGF.

This system would work not by sending an SMS to your mobile phone, but by using an authenticator app. An authenticator app gives you a six-digit code that you’d enter when signing in, in addition to your password. The big advantage of using an authenticator app is that you don’t even need to have a cell phone connection. There are quite a few authenticator apps available for all kinds of desktop and mobile devices.

Setting up the authenticator app is extremely simple - all you do is use your phone’s camera to scan a QR code displayed on your screen. When it’s all set, your account is safe even if someone gets your password somehow.

So… anyone interested? It would be an optional feature, of course. (I think I might implement it just for myself even if no one else is interested, because password hacking is becoming rampant on the web.)

Yes, Charles. Sounds good. My only concern is that those working from an iMac (Yo!) don’t have readers. Is the system like one of the wavy letter/number authenticators?

If so, then I say go.

From what I understand about Brexit in NI, it was largely on sectarian ties. Catholic areas more likely to support remaining and Protestant areas more likely to support leaving. You’re right though. IT could be the impetus for the unification of the two countries. Was really glad to see Nicola Sturgeon come out strongly in support of the refugees too. The SNP seems to me to be a rare nationalist party that does not use racism as part of its appeal and I respect them a lot for that.

And a re-vote on Scottish independence.

But that is fraught with issues, too; namely that countries like Spain would oppose accepting a newly independent Scotland as a member a move because they do not want to do anything to encourage their own regions to separate.

re: #40 Charles Johnson

OK, folks - I actually have a system now where I could provide two-factor login at LGF, if people are interested in making their login information much more secure.

We already have lots of layers of protection against passwords getting hacked, but this would take it to the next level and make it nearly impossible for a hacker to impersonate you at LGF.

This system would work not by sending an SMS to your mobile phone, but by using an authenticator app. An authenticator app gives you a six-digit code that you’d enter when signing in, in addition to your password. The big advantage of using an authenticator app is that you don’t even need to have a cell phone connection. There are quite a few authenticator apps available for all kinds of desktop and mobile devices.

Setting up the authenticator app is extremely simple - all you do is use your phone’s camera to scan a QR code displayed on your screen. When it’s all set, your account is safe even if someone gets your password somehow.

So… anyone interested? It would be an optional feature, of course. (I think I might implement it just for myself even if no one else is interested, because password hacking is becoming rampant on the web.)

Just an addendum on using an authenticator app/dongle for TFA: if you lose your phone/dongle and you don’t have a paper copy of your QR code and temporary keys locked away, you’re boned.

I know this from personal experience after I reset my phone (wiping out Google Authenticator’s data in the process) and didn’t remove TFA from my Amazon and EA/Origin accounts beforehand; it was a complete PITA to recover, but, fortunately, I was able to.

“First they came for the….

Then they came for the…”

Speaking of which, while my Republican senators and rep are sitting silently on their lame asses (as usual), here’s what our state chair sent out yesterday—mainly of interest as he, Jaime Harrison, is one of the peeps running for DNC Chair.

I’M SPEAKING OUT
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
And then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
-Pastor Martin Niemöller, 1946

This week, Donald Trump came for the immigrants and the Muslims. I’m speaking out.

I’m speaking out for Zaid and Shahad Alibadi. Zaid, a native of Iraq, worked with the U.S. military, escaped reprisals by escaping to the U.S., and is now a graduate student at the University of South Carolina. His sister Shahad is still waiting to join him, and now the family is worried she never will.

I’m speaking out for Nazanin Zinouri, a native of Iran who earned her Ph.D. from Clemson last year in industrial engineering and works as a data modeler in Greenville. Nazanin was visiting her family in Tehran and was removed from her flight home and told she couldn’t return to the U.S.

I’m speaking out for the countless others who may never get an opportunity to enrich our communities. I’m speaking out for us as we risk depriving our communities of their contributions.

I’m speaking out because Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail: “We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.’” I will not be silent. And if our elected officials support this disgraceful action or stay silent, South Carolinians will be rightfully appalled.

Ok, OT time.

I’m known as the Photographer at church. So today I got given a decent - not high end but not garbage cheap either - Nikkor AF lens, the 28 - 105/3.5-4.5 lens. Now I have a Nikon F adaptor for my Micro4/3 cameras as I use a Nikkor 50/1.4 non-AI as a portrait length lens. But compared to zooms on m4/3, it’s big, bulky and hard to manually focus. SO Nikon users what is a decent but cheap body to use with this lens? I’d probably play with it a little bit then give it to my son or some other younger person in need of something more than a cell phone.

Ideas?

How does that work on a mobile device?

I have hesitated doing this for other sites since it wants another cell (besides my primary) which I do not have.

How would the scan code be recognized on a phone?

Long press on the QR code. The phone will offer an option to scan it internally.

I pretty much predicted this last night, that they were going to move up the announcement now that they know that this ban will likely come before the SCOTUS bench. And the immediate Dem response should be a filibuster until the ban is overturned for the next 4 years.

The fact that people in the government are buying into the “paid protester” thing is…really bad on multiple levels.

They have an out when public outcry gets big and visible (and so far there’s no sign of using actual checks and balances, so protests are a way to kick-start that process); it suggests a general mentality that most people don’t matter; the “paid” part indicates an investment in the idea that there’s a conspiracy, a guilty party.

Protests now in Omaha, Nebraska.
wowt.com (Goes to WOWT, NBC affiliate in Omaha)
(with video)

OMAHA, Neb., (WOWT) — A crowd assembled Sunday afternoon in Turner Park at Midtown Crossing adding local voice to the national opposition we are seeing to President Trump executive order enforcing travel restrictions.

A federal judge granted an emergency stay Saturday night for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries who have already arrived in the US but on Sunday morning the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement saying President Donald Trump’s travel ban will not affect the overall implementation of the White House executive action.

That triggered another day of protest across the country including the one in Omaha that began early Sunday afternoon.

The local crowd came equipped with signs stating “No Hate,” and “Facts not Fear.”

The American flag flew as hundreds assembled in opposition to the president’s actions.

Hey House and Senate GOP: If you’re starting to lose a deeply conservative state like Nebraska, maybe you’d better rethink where it is you stand.

You might want to check with your constituents here about what they think of the president’s actions over the last eight days.

If you don’t want to stand up for your country, you might at least consider the destruction this can rain down on the Republican Party.

Yes, the US Marshals. The catch? The US Marshals fall under the purview of the DOJ, i.e. they answer to Trump.

And as a judge ordered the arrests of anyone not complying, in effect superseding the DOJ, you have a 100% constitutional crisis.

Received an E-mail in response to my posting of my essay this morning, a transcript of the National Parks Revolutionary Coordinating Committee (LOL), a bit long, so behind the hide bar, but pretty funny.

INITIAL MEETING OF THE NATIONAL PARKS REVOLUTIONARY COORDINATING COMMITTEE BY KATE WASHINGTON

INITIAL MEETING OF THE NATIONAL PARKS REVOLUTIONARY COORDINATING COMMITTEE by KATE WASHINGTON.

BADLANDS: My fellow national treasures, I call this meeting to order. Thank you all for coming. It seems like nobody else is willing to save America, so I’m taking matters into my own landscape. Our purpose today is to decide on our initial strategy.
SHENANDOAH: I’m not sure I’m comfortable with this. I mean, we’re parks. What the heck are we going to do to combat the Trump administration? Aren’t we supposed to just sit here looking pretty and letting people visit us?
Flowers banner
We rely on readers like you to keep McSweeney’s going
BADLANDS: Look, our mission as parks is “to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.” But if we don’t act now, all those natural and cultural resources are going to get closed to the public, sold off to Big Oil, blasted by climate change, or even devastated in a goddamn nuclear war. We can’t fulfill our mission without leading the revolution. And let’s face it, on our side we have not only science but also a vast cadre of trained survivalists, terrifying wild animals, forbidding terrain, and last but definitely not least, motherfucking active volcanoes. We can win this thing. So who’s with me?
[Enthusiastic shouts of “Hear, hear!” and “We are!” erupt.]

Lucy Corin’s One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses now in paperback.
SHENANDOAH: Okay, okay. I just — I mean, I’m really close to DC. I’m kind of in the line of fire here.
LINCOLN MEMORIAL: I’m in DC and you don’t hear me complaining.
SHENANDOAH: Aren’t you a national monument? I thought this meeting was for parks.
LINCOLN MEMORIAL: Back off. I’m part of the National Mall and Memorial Parks. And look, I deserve to be here. Trump defiled me with a huge banner at his inauguration and he’s trying to dismantle my entire legacy. I’m on board for the revolution.
BADLANDS: We’re all friends here. We have to be a united front. That means everything administered by the National Parks Service — monuments, memorials, whatever.
YOSEMITE: Please tell me you’re not inviting the National Forests.
BADLANDS: No. Of course not.
YOSEMITE: Phew.
BADLANDS: Now that we’ve settled that, let’s brainstorm ideas for the fight ahead. There are a lot of you, and I don’t know what you all have to offer. No idea too small!
GRAND CANYON: If we can get Trump to the edge of me, maybe someone could push him over?
CRATER LAKE: Same here.
DEATH VALLEY: I can overheat him so that orange makeup runs and he dies of thirst.
BADLANDS: I don’t get the sense Trump is all that outdoorsy. We might need to go to him. Anyone else?
CHANNEL ISLANDS: I have a bald eagle breeding program. Those birds are fierce and we know they hate Trump’s guts. What say we get together an eagle squadron?
LASSEN: Hey, buddy, you’re not the only one with bald eagles. Just because I’m undervisited doesn’t mean—
BADLANDS: Calm down, calm down. Bald eagles are a great idea. We all know they’ve made a spectacular recovery and are no longer endangered, thanks to exactly the kind of environmental regulations our new leader wants to remove. I think almost all of us have bald eagles and can work together on that. Channel Islands, can you head up the bald eagle committee? Lassen, you put your head together with Volcanoes to talk about how to deploy your firepower.
VOLCANOES: How come Lassen gets to be in charge? That place hasn’t erupted for a century.
MOUNT RAINIER: And what about me?
BADLANDS: There’s room for all of you. It’s a cooperative committee. We’re comrades in the revolution here.
[Disgruntled murmurs subside.]
GRAND TETONS: Is participation mandatory? I — I’m a little concerned Trump is just going to grope me. I mean, you know what my name means, right?
BADLANDS: Don’t worry — he has plenty of other things to grope closer to home. But we’ll definitely take a zero-tolerance policy on that.
SHENANDOAH: I’m still not sure about this. What are we going to do against a developing authoritarian regime? We can’t just tweet.
YELLOWSTONE: I hear the Education Secretary has a thing about bears. Yosemite and I can coordinate on that front.
SHENANDOAH: You thinking grizzlies in schools?
YELLOWSTONE: Don’t be ridiculous. They wouldn’t go near a school. But unleash some bears in the Department of Education and that lady will fold like a cheap tent. A cheap tent with food in it, attacked by a bear.
KATMAI: [heatedly] Oh, sure, let Yosemite and Yellowstone take the glamorous bear detail. Come on. I know I’m way up in Alaska but if you want bears, do I ever have bears. I have a goddamn bearcam, for Christ’s sake!
YELLOWSTONE: Fine. You can do bears. But what am I going to do?
KATMAI: Dude, you’re the super famous one with Old Faithful. Plus I heard a rumor you’re sitting on top of a massive supervolcano. Doesn’t that beat having the nuclear codes? I’m sure you can figure something out, Mr. First National Park.
EVERGLADES: To switch gears for a minute, can we talk about how Trump wants to drain the swamp? I don’t like the sound of that.
BADLANDS: Understandable. You take charge of swamp defense. Oh, that reminds me. Anyone here abut or straddle a national boundary?
GLACIER, VOYAGEURS, and BIG BEND: Yes!
BADLANDS: Great. You three, you’re on border wall prevention. Do whatever it takes.
GLACIER: Sounds good.
BADLANDS: This is a great start. One more thing. Is Mount Rushmore here?
MOUNT RUSHMORE: Present!
BADLANDS: Hey, neighbor, good to see you. I have your revolutionary assignment ready.
MOUNT RUSHMORE: I’ll do anything. Sniper attacks? Guerrilla warfare? Shearing off giant rocks and catapulting them onto the White House?
BADLANDS: I love the enthusiasm. But you don’t need to be violent. All you have to do is stay where you are and remind the entire nation of what a president should actually be.

It’s unnerving to consider what would have been had Trump been a 45-something politician with an adult mentality and the ability to work slowly and methodically to undermine everything.

Instead we have a 70 year old career con man with a first grade mentality who wanted to get everything fucking done immediately.

Dolt 45 really only has the one move: accuse everyone else of weakness and/or treachery, and hope he has sufficient lickspittles dragging in his wake that this amounts to leverage.

Republican Rep. Tom Price was tapped by Donald Trump to be secretary of Health and Human Services—AKA to lead the fight to repeal Obamacare.

Price’s appointment sets off the first congressional special election of the Trump era—and gives Democrats their first chance to fight back electorally. This is a conservative district with no love for Trump—he won here just 48-47, after Mitt Romney carried it 61-38 in 2012.

Because, to tell you the truth, the fact that he hasn’t jumped in to become the leader I think is going to make this more successful than if he’d just stepped up and told people to organize. Yes, we might be a bit rudderless right now, but there’s a whole lot of energy.

Friend in the United Kingdom just E-mailed, saying the parliamentary petition to ban Mr. Trump from meeting with the Royal Family went over 800,000 signatures, a record in time and number. He says he has never seen a petition move so fast.

Parliament considers all petitions that receive 109,000 signatures. They respond to all petitions that receive 10,000.

petition.parliament.uk (link to petition, text below):

Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.

Donald Trump’s well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales. Therefore during the term of his presidency Donald Trump should not be invited to the United Kingdom for an official State Visit.

Republican Jim Sensenbrenner, Wisconsin’s senior member of Congress, said on Saturday that people with green cards who are from countries affected by President Donald Trump’s immigration order should not be allowed into the United States.

Sensenbrenner’s position was recorded by a man, Joe Lalli, who had attended the congressman’s town hall meeting in Jefferson:

“People who have been here for years, who have green cards, and they’re on vacation when this was announced, and they’re stuck there — that’s OK with you? You think that’s right, that it’s good policy?” Lalli asks.

Sensenbrenner answers that the order is legal, but when pressed by Lalli to answer his question, says: “I’ll say yeah, it’s right.”

Friend in the United Kingdom just E-mailed, saying the parliamentary petition to ban Mr. Trump from meeting with the Royal Family went over 800,000 signatures, a record in time and number. He says he has never seen a petition move so fast.

Parliament considers all petitions that receive 109,000 signatures. They respond to all petitions that receive 10,000.

That would be equivalent to a no confidence vote on PM May.

Protests now in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the state capitol.

dailynebraskan.com

About 100 demonstrators gathered in front of the Nebraska Capitol building Sunday morning to protest President-elect Donald Trump.

Chelsea Dappen, a senior at Nebraska Wesleyan University, passionately spoke against Trump.

Dappen, a sexual assault survivor, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder four years ago. She said that her PTSD was triggered by the president-elect and that she refuses to be neutral about the election.

“As a sexual assault survivor, I know firsthand the dangers of neutrality and becoming a bystander.” Dappen said. “In our culture, we’re trained to mind our own business and not stir the pot. Sometimes, the pot needs stirred.”

Dappen said comments Trump made to Billy Bush in a recorded conversation in 2005 were an admittance to sexual assault.

Customs agents are not constitutional lawyers. They follow the orders they are given, and right now the Department of Homeland Security is defying the Federal courts.

The average border patrol agent is no more understanding of the law than my cat (or most Americans).

My guess here is DHS did not pass along that customs agents were ordered arrested if they defied the court.

The problem here is the Federal Marshal’s Service is under President Bannon’s DOJ.

International zones in airports are fully under the jurisdiction of the country where they are located and local laws apply. Persons caught committing an unlawful act (e.g. possession of contraband such as illegal drugs) in the international zone are liable for prosecution.

This is partly what I predicted last night, that the Administration would use the courts focus on the term “removal” to deny relief to those who technically hadn’t cleared customs and therefore entered the United States. What I didn’t predict is that they’d be brazen enough to try this shit on US soil, I thought they’d be smart enough to simply focus on denying boarding at foreign airports. What they’re doing instead is daring the Court to enforce its order domestically, which is incredibly dangerous territory.

It’s a nice thought but I think there are too many states Gerrymandered to shit to let that happen. I’d settle for retaking one of the chambers so there’s a check on his power.

We need to learn from 1994, another off year election with low turnout. A clever demagogue Newt Gingrich managed to persuade enough voters to turn a blue Congress and Senate a bright red. Even long term Congressman Rostenkowski, a Chicago Democrat who may have been the last person on Earth to know and understand the Internal Revenue Code, was replaced by an unknown Republican. People voted against Democrats en masse, without knowing. who they were supporting. The guy who unseated Rostenkowski got thrown out in 1996, but the damage had been done nation-wide.

We need a Democratic Gingrich who can fire up the base with ideas that have widespread appeal (even if they are abandoned as soon as the Congress takes office) and demonize Republicans on every front.

The Libertarian Party weighs in on the burning of the mosque in Texas yesterday and another there a couple weeks ago.

lp.org

In the early morning hours of January 28th, a fire broke out in the Victoria Islamic Center in Victoria, TX. It quickly destroyed the whole building. The cause has not officially been determined.

Two weeks ago, another mosque, the Islamic Center of Lake Travis, in Austin, TX, burned. Again, the cause of the fire has not been officially determined.

Both mosques have previously been vandalized. And the mosque in Victoria was burglarized last week.

Regardless of the causes of these fires, the Libertarian Party extends sympathy to the Muslim communities in these towns and across America.

Rand Paul is on the “repeal birthright citizenship train”
washingtonpost.com

More at the link (article from 2015):

In his ongoing war with Donald Trump, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has portrayed the tycoon-cum-candidate as a chameleon, a late-comer to conservative policies that Tea Party activists (like Paul) advocated for years. Among those policies: Changing interpretation of the 14th Amendment to prevent “birthright citizenship.” In 2011, just days into his Senate career, Paul joined Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) on a resolution which would have clarified “that under the 14th Amendment a person born in the United States to illegal aliens does not automatically gain citizenship.” Just three months into his Senate career, Vitter, Paul, and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) wrote new legislative language on this.

That went nowhere, but Paul has not changed his mind. During an interview in Haiti this week, he said that the current reading of the 14th Amendment was problematic as long as it inspired undocumented immigrants to come to the United States and give birth.

Years back, Iranian brothers were detained for several years by the Iranian regime on claims of espionage. The Alaei brothers. They were doctors/health experts who were trying to do good deeds - helping reduce the spread of AIDS/HIV in Iran. They were arrested, tried in a 1-day show trial, and sentenced to prison.

After serving several years in prison, they were released. They returned to the US.

I suspect it will not be long before members of our Natl Guard/military will be put in a position of deciding whether to fire upon citizens.

I think it’s more insidious than that. Trump/Bannon WANTS to put them in a position where they will refuse to fire. When that happens, Cheetoh will declare a dire emergency and call for volunteers to fill the gap caused by mutiny and 8 years of Obama sponsored LGBTQ subversion. After all “this ain’t you father’s military” has been a MAJOR theme at RWNJ sites like Free Republic and, even less coincidentally, Breitbart itself.
At that point, Erik Prince will take charge and Bikers for Trump, fundy gun churches and all the other ammosexual gangs will move in. They have been preparing for this for years.

I’ve been so disappointed in you, going from a pretty decent (and fairly liberal, IIRC) governor taking over in the aftermath of the disgrace and corruption that was the Ray Blanton administration, then serving as Bush 41’s Education Secretary.

Now, you’re beholden to the Tea Partyites that control your district, as well as the TN state government…fucking spineless worm.

I think it’s more insidious than that. Trump/Bannon WANTS to put them in a position where they will refuse to fire. When that happens, Cheetoh will declare a dire emergency and call for volunteers to fill the gap caused by mutiny and 8 years of Obama sponsored LGBTQ subversion. After all “this ain’t you father’s military” has been a MAJOR theme at RWNJ sites like Free Republic and, even less coincidentally, Breitbart itself.
At that point, Erik Prince will take charge and Bikers for Trump, fundy gun churches and all the other ammosexual gangs will move in. They have been preparing for this for years.

Yep the Bundys in Oregon were all over that preparing for years stuff and the Bikers for Trump were crying in a video that the women were being mean to them and they needed help. I don’t think the right is as prepared as people or themselves think.

There are competing theories to explain the decline in the abortion rate. The drop coincided with the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which made more effective and expensive methods of contraception, such as IUDs, available to millions more women for no “copay” or prescription charge. But the decline also aligned with a historic spike in new, state-level abortion restrictions.

Some data - such as trends in contraception usage - that could help determine the reasons for the decline are not yet available for 2014. Still, the researchers predicted that the drop in the abortion rate had less to do with new restrictions than with changes in contraception usage and a reduction in unintended pregnancies.

One clue is that more than 60% of the decline in the abortion rate took place in states that had not enacted new hurdles to getting the procedure.

I’m a Nashvillian and I went looking for info; this is all that I’ve found as of right now:

Speakers included Mayor Megan Barry and Vice Mayor David Briley. The protest began about 3 p.m. and was peaceful.

Until it began to disband.

About 4:30 p.m., as the mass of protesters was leaving, several protesters reported being tapped by a vehicle passing through the intersection. Several people took photographs of protesters lying on top of the hood of an SUV.

Nashville police were called and began an investigation. No more details were immediately available.
