It can be read on numerous levels. He’s inciting a crowd of fervent believers, but are they black? White? The CG gives everything a mocha cast. Is he inciting blacks against whites? Whites against blacks?

And is he initiating a race war or initiating a counterforce against a race war?

It’s fascinating, eerie (especially the last twenty seconds), and provoking.

It’s a very effective as a piece of art.

There was a question about Garrison in the last thread.

Here is an example of the misuse of his cartoons by the Nazis:

BTW there’s hardly a question that Garrison is a disgusting, misogynistic, racist, conspiracist pig. That doesn’t make him a Nazi, just a good conservative.

Houston has definitely taken a more progressive turn even in the last year. We’ve had great Dem mayors forever but for some reason until this last election always went for the lawn order DAs. The last one, Devon Anderson, put her own head in a noose when she jailed a rape victim. We did not like that one bit. County also went 64% for Hillary. Sylvester Turner finally got the mayor’s office and is a good guy and with Kim Ogg as DA I can see Houston leading the state in progressive policies like this.

I’m certainly pleased on a personal level. :-D

Here’s some pictures, and they’re from 2012:

Now, here’s the thing. Oil companies flare “waste natural gas” from oil production pads because they don’t want to put in the infrastructure to transport it to an end user. If the flared gas in south Texas could be collected and transported, it could replace the coal used in every electric generating plant in south Texas.

That would decrease the CO2 from those generating stations by 40%, SOx and NOx by 70%, and particulates by 80%.

But the State of Texas doesn’t require them to set up the pipeline infrastructure before giving them a permit to drill.

Oh, and by the way, six of the the ten biggest mercury emitters in the US are in in Texas because they burn locally mined lignite. Those six plants emitted 6,145 tons of mercury in 2010. They are all still using locally mined lignite despite the fact that natural gas production has increased by over an order of magnitude since 2010 and the cost has gone down to squat.

For comparison, California had total mercury emissions of 16 pounds (all natural gas and nuclear generation).

The only way to force them to collect that flared NG would be regulations and/or laws. And that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon.

His foreign policy (such as it is) and his business interests are closely linked, that much is obvious. That the shadowy Trump Org might be laundering money for the Russians and who knows what else may be less obvious, but certainly believable.

The thread also brings up the cronyism within Trump’s Cabinet and executive appointments, which Trump swore during the campaign he would put an end to in DC. Instead, there are a whole slew of people riding his coattails toward even greater riches, which none of Trump’s clueless supporters will ever see.

wheat-dogg  Feb 19, 2017 • 4:11:01am

Experts have noticed a pattern in how the Trump White House deals with the media.

The incident reflects an emerging pattern noted by several top political reporters in how the Trump administration handles its most controversial policy proposals, and undermines the press in the process:

1. Wait for a draft memo of a proposal to be leaked to the press.
2. Refuse to comment when asked about the draft.
3. Wait to dispute a story’s accuracy until the story is published.
4. Accuse the press of never having sought comment to begin with.

Trump has followed this pattern closely. In a press conference on Thursday, he dismissed reports about his campaign team’s communication with Russia as “fake news,” and said that the Wall Street Journal and New York Times had never asked him for comment before publishing their respective stories. Both outlets, however, either included a White House denial or stated that the White House did not respond to requests for comment.

I do believe that the level of crazy in this administration and its supporters has equaled, and is about to surpass, what we saw nearly 50 years ago in the conduct of the Vietnam war. Those who remember those times will understand what a hell of a lot that really is.

Wonder how he would deal with this issue

President of Iceland announces that he would ban pineapple as a pizza topping

of course:

1. Wait for a draft memo of a proposal to ban pineapple pizza to be leaked to the press.
2. Refuse to comment about pizza topping when asked about the draft.
3. Wait to dispute a story’s accuracy until the pineapple pizza story is published.
4. Accuse the press of never having sought comment on pineapple pizza to begin with.

BuzzFeed: Betsy DeVos’s Brother, The Founder Of Blackwater, Is Setting Up A Private Army For China, Sources Say
The controversial Blackwater founder says he is setting up two bases in China, but his company says “this does not involve armed personnel.”

Erik Prince — founder of the private military company Blackwater, financial backer of President Donald Trump, brother to the new Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and frequent Breitbart radio guest of White House power broker Stephen Bannon — has been offering his military expertise to support Chinese government objectives and setting up two Blackwater-style training camps in China, according to sources and his own company statements.
The move could put him at odds with Trump, who has often taken a hard line against China, and could also risk violating US law, which prohibits the export of military services or equipment to China.

They’re going to lose their next election likely regardless of what they do here though honestly.

I’d just have such people read Burke’s Speech to the Electors of Bristol.

Especially this part.

Certainly, gentlemen, it ought to be the happiness and glory of a representative to live in the strictest union, the closest correspondence, and the most unreserved communication with his constituents. Their wishes ought to have great weight with him; their opinion, high respect; their business, unremitted attention. It is his duty to sacrifice his repose, his pleasures, his satisfactions, to theirs; and above all, ever, and in all cases, to prefer their interest to his own. But his unbiassed opinion, his mature judgment, his enlightened conscience, he ought not to sacrifice to you, to any man, or to any set of men living. These he does not derive from your pleasure; no, nor from the law and the constitution. They are a trust from Providence, for the abuse of which he is deeply answerable. Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

The two bases are in Yunnan and Xinjiang provinces. Yunnan abuts Myanmar, where there has been fighting internally, and Tibet, which Beijing wants to bring under its full control. Xinjiang, meanwhile, is home to Uyghur Muslims, who are resisting Beijing’s attempts to “harmonize” the province by suppressing local customs and religious practices. Tibet and Xinjiang, in particular, are the provinces causing the most trouble for the government.

When I point out that the our competitors have a single nationwide curriculum, it’s *crickets* and back to parents are all experts at knowing the ideal school program.

The local knows best approach to education sounds all well and good on paper until you realize that as our kids get older, they will be competing with students from around their state, country, and even globally to get into universities. I’m fine with some differentiation on some subject matters, i.e. more focus on the colonial period in states that were the 13 colonies or on Westward expansion in Western states but things like mathematics and science should have a near universal curriculum from here in Virginia to Alaska.

Exactly and Gwang, it’s good to see you this afternoon. The other hypocritical thing is Republicans and conservatives sure don’t feel that way about military spending but that’s another story. My big big problem with Devos is her idea that states should choose whether they apply disability standards or not. Of course, the conservative response to that is “Well move to another state then.”

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area *which is sunny, warm, and approaching record high temps once again* and the resistance.

Trump’s shit show of a first month ends with a campaign stop for 2020 in which he lies and claims something awful happened in Sweden (it didn’t). None of this is surprising or shocking, but other countries are all WTF Donny?!

Chris Cizilla? Yeah, he’s wondering

Pence is off in Europe on an apology tour; the Europeans are all like, yeah, until the next time Trump tweets some nonsense in which case, all your assurances are BS.

Mattis is off claiming that he’s concerned about Trump’s disregard for free speech (which is actually a 1A violation - a threat of suppressing free speech through govt action), but he’s not that concerned enough to resign over it.

And there’s 100s of positions for which Trump hasn’t even bothered to nomination someone. These are all key positions under the cabinet level that help make government function. Trump’s too busy jetting around to be bothered with this, and this has nothing to do with Democrats opposition to his picks. He simply isn’t doing his fucking job.

Let me repeat. Trump isn’t doing his fucking job. Holding campaign rallies isn’t his job a month in. Governing isn’t easy. And he doesn’t want to be bothered by any of it.

Which means others are doing the job of governing - Bannon.

Utah Republican argues against equal pay for women: It’s ‘bad for families’ and society

Green said in his letter, published Wednesday by the Park Record and the Wasatch Wave, that men make more than women because they’re “the primary breadwinners” of their families, and paying women equally would somehow ruin the makeup of a traditional family where “the Mother” remains at home raising children.

“If businesses are forced to pay women the same as male earnings, that means they will have to reduce the pay for the men they employ, simple economics,” Green wrote. “If that happens, then men will have an even more difficult time earning enough to support their families, which will mean more Mothers will be forced to leave the home (where they may prefer to be) to join the workforce to make up the difference.”

And having more women in the workforce would create competition for jobs, “even men’s jobs,” Green wrote. That will, in turn, lower the pay for all jobs and force “more and more Mothers” into the workforce, he argued.

That’s “bad for families and thus for all of society,” Green wrote. “It’s a vicious cycle that only gets worse the more equality of pay is forced upon us. It’s a situation of well-meaning intentions, but negative unintended consequences.”

The stuff he said in his ‘apology’ is even worse.

Huh, I had no idea Noah (a.s.) was 600 years old when he began building the ark. If he could sire children at the age of 500 and build an ark 100 years later, then anything is possible, up to and including dinosaur gladiators. //

—Biblical Data:
Son of Lamech and the ninth in descent from Adam. In the midst of a bounding corruption he alone was “righteous and blameless in his generations” and “walked with God” (Gen. vi. 9). Hence, when all his contemporaries were doomed to perish by the divine judgment in punishment for their sins, he “found grace in the eyes of the Lord” (ib. vi. 8). When he was about five hundred years old his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, were born (ib. v. 32). One hundred years after this the command came to him from God to make a great vessel or ark, three hundred cubits in length, in which he and his family were to find safety from the waters of a great flood. This deluge was to destroy all living things except such as should be brought into the ark before the coming of the waters. Hence, besides his wife, and his sons and their wives, eight persons in all, a pair of every species of living thing was taken into the ark (ib. vi. 13-21). Another account (ib. vii. 1-3) states that of the clean animals seven of each kind were thus preserved. […]

That was paged yesterday. For those who won’t bother reading the entire article, this group is NOT concerned with radicalized Muslims who might be potential terrorists, they’re concerned with moderate, law abiding Muslims. Emphasis added:

Del Valle’s comments about “killing the hell” out of Muslims were preceded by a warning from Jones about that the true danger to the United States is not necessarily al-Qaida, ISIS and other outwardly extremist groups that carry out spectacular acts of violence that garner widespread media coverage. People should be more concerned about Muslims who appear to be moderate and integrated into American society, he said.

Here’s the thing that’s been bugging me the last few days, and I only twigged to it this morning. Trump accidentally said something true the other day, and we missed it.

Trump said the press is the enemy of the people, and we jumped to the media’s defense, partly because Trump is a fascist thug, and partly because we need a free press for democracy to function. It’s true, at least in theory. But in practice, it hasn’t been so for decades. In practice, the press sided against the people years ago.

They spent the ’90s screaming about Bill Clinton’s penis. John McCain gave ‘em tire rides on his swing, and they insisted he was a maverick. Dubya gave ‘em chummy nicknames, and they got aboard the bandwagon for the pointless and unwinnable Iraq War. (It’s another sign of how dumb Trump is. If he’d embraced the press the way Bush did, they’d be snuggled up to Trump like a maiden in a Frazetta painting.) The media gave endless coverage to the teabaggers, a small and unpopular band of gibbering mouthers, after ignoring the massive anti-war protests.

Trump was a clown from the very beginning, but the press despised Hillary because REASONS. And hence the endless complaints about emails.

The press has spent over 20 years siding with Republicans *against* the American people. They picked their side.

Yes, there are reporters who’ve fought Trump from the beginning, who’ve fought for the people over the politicians. But the press worked hard to elect Trump. They attacked Hillary, covered every Trump rally, hired his staff as pundits. If Trump changed his tune on the press, the media would declare the Pivot Has Arrived and start wearing redcaps.

It’s important to support groups being attacked by fascists like Trump — but don’t forget: the press is still the enemy of the people.

At that point, people like Breitbart and Drudge figured out that all they had to do was to get a story floated out on the Intertubes, no matter how spurious or far-fetched, and soon it would acquire a life of its own and the press would pick it up and discuss the pros and cons it as if it had any actual merit…

re: #246 scottslemmons

Your examples are right on, but I don’t think the press is really the enemy of the people. Instead, what examples like these demonstrate is that the press has become increasingly dedicated to covering whatever will help them be profitable, and increasingly uncaring about stories that won’t get them an instant payoff. In a way, we’re seeing a media that’s just giving people what they want, driven by market and financial pressures… and this usually entails pandering to the lowest common denominator with sensationalism.

I knew we were riding a handcart to Hell when “trending on Twitter” became a regular news item.

At that point, people like Breitbart and Drudge figured out that all they had to do was to get a story floated out on the Intertubes, no matter how spurious or far-fetched, and soon it would acquire a life of its own and the press would pick it up and discuss the pros and cons it as if it had any actual merit…

“Network” was on TCM last night. Almost puked while watching it now—it was all fun and games until it all came to pass—the Faye Dunaway character still makes my skin crawl.

Frank Hackett: Well, the issue is: Shall we kill Howard Beale, or not? I’d like to get some more opinions on that.
Diana Christensen: I don’t see we have any options, Frank. Let’s kill the son-of-a-bitch.

And the closing line: “This was the story of Howard Beale: The first known instance of a man who was killed because he had lousy ratings.”

Conservatives being conservatives are always the liberals’ fault.

I remember a couple months ago some asshole was saying if the liberals were nicer to pro-lifers they might vote Democrat.

First off, when do these fucking litmus tests allegedly happen? I helped out on the Clinton campaign, even identified myself as a “recovering Republican”, and I don’t remember ever being subjected to one. Hell, my opinion on abortion is probably more conservative than most people on here and the organizer I was working with had previously been working for Planned Parenthood as an organizer. The number of times that abortion came up during the campaign? 0.

That’s kinda what got me ticked off this morning.

Like I said before, I know there are so many good reporters out there, and god bless ‘em. But you’ve got plenty like Sabrina Tavernise in the linked NYT article, who’s doing all she can to provide cover for Those Poor Sad Trumpers Who Are Not Loved By Bully Libs. And you’ve got Don Lemon, who’s getting praise for shutting down a Trump supporter spouting off about Fake News, but did all he could to boost Fake News when it would hurt Democrats.

I think it’s important — really, really, really important — to support reporters who are going to face tremendous pressure from Trump and possible violence from his supporters. But I just don’t want to hear the press trumpet their own Bravery and Dedication to The Truth, when they didn’t give a damn about either ‘til they got pushback from someone else.

Adam Curtis’ documentary The Century of the Self (one of his better works IMO) comes to mind here, in regards to Trump, the media, and American society.

Perhaps the change wrought by advertising and the weaponization of advertising, if I may insert a concept into Curtis’ narrative, is even larger than Curtis thought.

The concept of the “self” as a consumer has brought about a form of hyper-materialism, and no one represents that better than Trump, and the marks who fall for the “Trump” brand.
