The one of their birth genders because you know a trans man would be totally accepted in a woman’s room. I swear these morons think every transgendered person has a beard like me but is wearing women’s clothes.

one of my own friends is obsessed with the transgendered bathroom thing and he has the nerve to complain about his tax dollars going to welfare. It’s like dude you literally want a sex police patrolling department store bathrooms playing the guessing game about people’s birth gender. And then of course, he tried to show me Ben Shapiro “destroying” a transgendered reporter but it was actually Ben showing again why he’s still a pathetic wanker.

Can you imagine the security nightmare the Mar-a-Lago must be for the SS?

Members, plus guests- at night- staying overnight, in hotel rooms, eating on the veranda with Prexy.

Do members have to be vetted? How about their guests? Metal detectors at the front desk? At the front doors? Where do you set up your perimeter? How about vehicles entering the ground?

How many personnel would that take?

Meanwhile, you’ve got Trump Tower, three adult sibs with wives and kids who could be anywhere in the world, Tiffany and whoever she’s hanging with, plus The White House, any foreign dignitaries visiting the US, anti-counterfeiting efforts, general security needs, and transportation needs for all of the above.

Oh, and they are transitioning to a new SS Chief.

What could go wrong?

Far as Milo Douchebagginus, I only have three things I can offer:

1) Larry Willmore can make a ‘go fuck yourself’ sound like a scholarly counterpoint in tone somehow.

2) It’s telling the people he called ‘stupid’ and ‘illiterate’ were all black

3) He strikes me as an evil universe Eddie Izzard. Izzard is a man who embraced his transvestite tendencies and found empathy with other sexualities, used his celebrity to help people, and if anything tried to foster understanding in a humorous way. Milo comes of as fantastically self hating in a way that extends to everyone who isn’t ‘normal’ or normative, uses his celebrity to demean and marginalize people, and treats people as his stark inferior on an extremely white supremacist basis.

Mostly I read his pop culture stuff, which was just shoddy and demonstrated that he gave no shits about the subject. It was very bad writing….copping a position he didn’t have the knowledge to defend, using stale tropes as filler.

The point of overlap between Bill and Milo is neither pauses to consider whether they might not be thinking stuff through. Whatever reasoning they’ve arrived at is correct, even if it can be taken apart by facts or arguments.

Also, both think that there’s some kind of validity in “shocking” statements in and of themselves, and become pissy when others don’t treat their spectacle as meaningful-unto-itself.

Problem is, far as where the power is, those two are effectively synonymous. The GOP essentially have all the power they want, and with the support of around 90% of their base ensuring that they won’t change, we’re essentially held hostage by the population that subsists in the very way I said.

My first day teaching, a senior girl came into my office after school was out, and propositioned me. I know I didn’t handle it correctly, but I just let her know that I went differently, but I hoped we could continue talking. It turned out we became close, and one of two things: either she was really transgender, as she thought she was, or she was just a young woman who was confused and wanted attention from someone. I hope she found her way.

Bret Stephens delivered the Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture this week at the University of California, Los Angeles. Read the full text of his remarks below:

I’m profoundly honored to have this opportunity to celebrate the legacy of Danny Pearl, my colleague at The Wall Street Journal.

My topic this evening is intellectual integrity in the age of Donald Trump. I suspect this is a theme that would have resonated with Danny.

When you work at The Wall Street Journal, the coins of the realm are truth and trust — the latter flowing exclusively from the former. When you read a story in the Journal, you do so with the assurance that immense reportorial and editorial effort has been expended to ensure that what you read is factual.

Not probably factual. Not partially factual. Not alternatively factual. I mean fundamentally, comprehensively and exclusively factual. And therefore trustworthy.

This is how we operate. This is how Danny operated. This is how he died, losing his life in an effort to nail down a story.

In the 15 years since Danny’s death, the list of murdered journalists has grown long.

Paul Klebnikov and Anna Politkovskaya in Russia.

Zahra Kazemi and Sattar Behesti in Iran.

Jim Foley and Steve Sotloff in Syria.

Five journalists in Turkey. Twenty-six in Mexico. More than 100 in Iraq.

When we honor Danny, we honor them, too.

We do more than that.

Ok so I lied. I have one more thing I have to say about Milo, related to what I’ve been on about on Twitter:

I’m fucking sick of being told we need to reach out, show understanding, show empathy, talk more with the other side, etc. etc. etc. If Milo’s rise shows anything, it shows how bunk that idea is, because Milo is one of the most exclusionary voices out there, and people fall down at his fucking feet over his brilliance while chiding us for not ‘reaching out’, while he can basically verbally punch people in the face, shit on their shoes, and call people the most genetically stupid thing in existence without consequences

The double standard of trying to be the adult in the room and being punished for it, while literal fucking Nazis get told how brilliantly inclusive they are, is the biggest fucking joke ever, and I’m not laughing.

I don’t want Trump’s presidency ending with a bullet or an explosion. That will make him a martyr. I want his presidency to end with 75-80 Senators voting to remove him from office for high crimes and misdemeanors. That’s the only acceptable outcome, as far as I’m concerned. Even resignation gives him cover, like Nixon, to claim it was a grand left wing conspiracy.

I don’t really pay any attention to Milo, if not for the occasional posts here and a couple of right leaning websites that I check, I honestly wouldn’t know who he was. That said, I do have an honest question:

Has anyone ever seen his black boyfriend? From what little I know of him this could very easily be a “oh, you wouldn’t know him, he doesn’t go to this school” sort of thing (much like Rage Furby’s hot Asian wife prior to photos)

re: #78 Citizen K

Ok so I lied. I have one more thing I have to say about Milo, related to what I’ve been on about on Twitter:

I’m fucking sick of being told we need to reach out, show understanding, show empathy, talk more with the other side, etc. etc. etc. If Milo’s rise shows anything, it shows how bunk that idea is, because Milo is one of the most exclusionary voices out there, and people fall down at his fucking feet over his brilliance while chiding us for not ‘reaching out’, while he can basically verbally punch people in the face, shit on their shoes, and call people the most genetically stupid thing in existence without consequences

The double standard of trying to be the adult in the room and being punished for it, while literal fucking Nazis get told how brilliantly inclusive they are, is the biggest fucking joke ever, and I’m not laughing.

Totally agree, and I’ve been arguing this exact same point for quite a while now. The naïve idea that giving these disgusting people free rein will result in them being “debunked” or “shut down” by the awesome power of absolute free speech is a destructive, asinine concept that needs to die. It simply DOES NOT work that way any more, if it ever did.

Indulging people like Milo and Richard Spencer and Chuck Johnson and letting them spew garbage all over the Internet has brought us to the place we’re at right now, and that place sucks.

Trump said:

I guess one of the reasons I’m here today is to tell you the whole Russian thing, that’s a ruse. That’s a ruse.

And by the way, it would be great if we could get along with Russia, just so you understand that. That tomorrow you’ll say: “Donald Trump wants to get along with Russia. This is terrible.” It’s not terrible. It’s good.

That’s… not wrong. Uttered by anyone else, much of the liberal-oriented media would be heralding what was said here as obviously correct and commonsensical, almost not needing any justification. But Trump utters it, and we’re supposed to believe that it’s all part of some grand Kremlin-directed conspiracy to undermine the very foundation of American democracy. Or something.

True this: outside of sitting on the dais of the Senate twiddling his thumbs presiding over the Senate, the VP has no official duties or responsibilities of any kind. Outside, of course, whatever the President can delegate for him/her to do, or some pet hobby project.

Also, if y’all need a palate-cleanser from Milo and Maher’s transphobia hatefest, go find “Dreadnought” by April Daniels. It’s a superhero novel about a trans teenager who becomes the accidental recipient of the powers of the World’s Greatest Superhero. The powers come with an instant upgrade into her ideal body, which means an instant transition, but It’s far from smooth sailing for her — she loses her best friend, her emotionally abusive parents get much worse, and even has to deal with a TERF superhero. But it’s an excellent story, with fantastic characters, and it was a joy to read.

Other generals that appeared in the video included Vincent K. Brooks and Air Force generals Peter U. Sutton and Jack J. Catton Jr.[8] At the time he was Commandant of Cadets at West Point. In a letter, he said he would be more vigilant about such improprieties going forward.[9]

And they brought me down to see her
And they asked me if I would
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might
And she said
“Tell me are you a Christian child?”
And I said “Ma’am I am tonight”

I knew he was Jewish because of his last name, but it’s part of how, as Americans, we feel…. well, American, y’know? It can be many different things at different times… and all of them or none of them at once. Or something like that—now I’m talking in circles!

Nah, he was briefing them on the Russian investigation into Flynn and others within Trump’s campaign. Remember that Chaffetz leaks like a sieve and nothing’s come out yet, that plus Trump preemptive and incredibly broad attacks on the media points to something really fucking bad potentially being on the horizon, something Trump felt the need to try and discredit via a blanket discrediting of all normal media channels.

re: #184 goddamnedfrank

Nah, he was briefing them on the Russian investigation into Flynn and others within Trump’s campaign. Remember that Chaffetz leaks like a sieve and nothing’s come out yet, that plus Trump preemptive and incredibly broad attacks on the media points to something really fucking bad potentially being on the horizon, something Trump felt the need to try and discredit via a blanket discrediting of all normal media channels.

I was being a bit facetious, but yeah, whatever Comey said about the FBI’s Russian investigations has the Republicans scared shitless enough for Blabbermouth Chaffetz to keep his yap shut.

Texas is the largest exporter among the 50 states with nearly $280 billion in exports, according to state data.

So, California is also more self-reliant than Texas. When Trump tanks the economy, California will do a better job of staying afloat than other states like here in Texas.

Noticed that too. I sent a tweet to the author pointing that out.

(I was going to mock Trump about interviewing a Lieutenant Colonel for the position, but I was thinking someone had to be at least a General-level officer to run West Point, so I googled.)

Despite Trump claiming Chicago is so dangerous, turns out #EmolumentsViolation Golf Resort is situated in a location with crime rates that are same.

That’s right. Mar a Lago’s West Palm Beach has higher murder and overall crime rate than Chicago.

The city of West Palm Beach, which sits just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Trump’s palatial Mar-a-Lago Resort — aka the Winter White House — on exclusive Palm Beach, had a violent crime rate in 2015 that was equal to that of the Windy City, according to federal crime records.

There were 23 homicides in a city of just 104,919 residents. And the rate of violent crime, which also includes rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults, was 9 for every 1,000 residents — the same as the far bigger Chicago, records show.

While Trump regularly rails about crime in the city that is the hometown of his predecessor Barack Obama and birthplace of Hillary Clinton, he’s not said a peep about the past troubles in the city that he drives through every time he comes to Florida.

That has not gone unnoticed by community activists like Ricky Aiken, who has been working hard with West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and the local police to keep local crime in check.

“Trump is a guy who lives over there,” Aiken told NBC News, referring to Palm Beach. “If he is serious about making changes in the inner cities, he would be welcome. But people like him tend to avoid communities like mine.”

That Trump’s press people can’t get basic facts about the people they’re considering shows that they simply don’t give a shit about facts, or respect any of the people that are under consideration. To get the rank of a Caslan wrong? That’s no mere error.

Faux News claims Obama held a campaign event February 8, 2009 as a defense of this nonsense down on Florida today by Bannon/Trump.

It’s Faux News, so it is clearly a lie. Obama held a town hall event in Elkhart, IN.

Not a campaign event, not even close. But that’s Fox for you - and the mindless regurgitators will repeat this endlessly.
