BoingBoing: National Enquirer thinks Trump is almost too smart for his own good

The “explosive report” by the crack investigative team of medically-trained ‘Enquirer’ reporters promises to blow the lid off Trump’s “shocking psych file!”

What does the iconoclastic tabloid that routinely excoriates celebrities for being too fat, too thin, too wrinkly, too surgically-enhanced, too rich or too poor, now reveal about the psychological flaws of America’s Commander in Chief?

Its “investigation” uncovers this startling discovery: “He’s got the mind to be a great president.”

Say what?

“Natural-born leader Donald Trump is a highly focused, driven and charismatic genius who thinks outside the box - and is almost too smart for his own good!”

That’s the “remarkable analysis of 13 top psychotherapists and behavioral health specialists” who studied Trump for the ‘Enquirer.’

Well, no fake news to see here. Move along, move along.

It’s almost refreshing to see the ‘Enquirer’ resume its normal fact-challenged service with claims that singer Cher has been “brought back from the dead” (because zombies are all the rage this year), Ellen DeGeneres’ girlfriend Portia de Rossi has moved into a “lesbian love shack” (because she couldn’t just move into any old house - it had to be a lesbian house), and analyze “Hollywood’s best boobs - Fantastic or Plastic?’ which presumably comes under the heading of public service journalism - though evidently few stars can say: “They’re real, and they’re spectacular.”

“We Endorse Donald Trump For President!”

From the clip: John Stewart says you can tell he is lying because he says “believe me.”

LOL

I am reminded of an orientation lecture given by the Chaplain at NAS Oceana when I first reported in to that command:

You know what the difference between a fairy tale and a sea story is?

A fairy tale begins “once upon a time” and a sea story begins “no shit.”

I eat Subway from time to time, and I always order the exact same thing: foot-long on honey oat, cold cut combo with swiss cheese, toasted, and everything except spinach and jalapeños, with a little yellow mustard and salt pepper.

Remembering Five Years of Dead Breitbart - Just Kidding Remembering Five Years of Me

On this day five years ago, Wonkette owner Ken Layne played the WORST TRICK ON YOU GUYS EVER, and announced he had sold this little mommyblog and suicide hotline to MOI.

Also, Andrew Breitbart keeled over dead of his own anger, which led to Steve Bannon taking over breitbart.com and getting Donald Trump elected president.

Wouldn’t have mattered if Strange had been sworn in or not, Sessions resigned on 8 Feb.
Wasn’t his seat anymore.
So, if Strange had not been sworn in, either Strange would have to decline from his appointment, or the AL gov. withdraw it, and appoint Sessions to the seat.

While he’s getting a lot of heat, can’t he just ride it out? The GOP controls Congress, and even if they ever do an investigation, it could just be for show. Once they clear Sessions of wrongdoing, then the Republicans can say “see, all those Democrats were just crying wolf.”

Well, there is that. It depends on how radioactive the GOP sees Sessions now.

If they think he’ll hurt them in elections, or covering up Russian involvement with him will, they’ll sacrifice him in an Alabama minute.

It wasn’t the crimes that got Reagan’s and Nixon’s cabinet members (and Nixon himself), it was the cover-up.

Since according to Trump, that’s the only thing Flynn did wrong, expect the administration to ossify around him. At this point it might save Sessions, since I doubt the Republican Congress is going to care very much, but this sort of thing is likely to get worse, implicating Trump himself.

He didn’t surround himself with these people for no reason.

FCC blocks rule to require ISPs to protect privacy.

Worse, the GOP is advancing a bill to make it illegal for the FCC to eliminate all broadband privacy rules over your private data, and prohibit the FCC from enacting privacy rules in the future.

This is a potential area where even the most wingnut of Republican voters could be potential allies in a pushback against Republicans in Congress and the FCC chairman. More at the Electronic Frontier Foundation:

Internet users won a significant victory last year when the FCC issued its Broadband Privacy Rules. As part of these rules, ISPs would be required to protect their customers’ sensitive information. For instance, ISPs would need to take reasonable steps to protect Social Security numbers, financial information, health information, and Web browsing data against hackers. In the wake of major ISPs like Comcast suffering huge data breaches, this would clearly be sound policy—but Chairman Pai apparently disagrees. And of course, ISPs are gleeful about his decision because they’d prefer not to be scrutinized when they fail to properly protect your data.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the worst of it.

Republicans in Congress are planning a much bigger assault on the Internet, by making it illegal for the FCC to protect consumer privacy online. With heavy support from the cable and telephone industry, they are hoping to use a rare and far reaching tool known as a Congressional Review Act resolution, which would not only completely eliminate all of the FCC’s broadband privacy rules (not just the data security rule), it would prohibit the FCC from ever enacting any “substantially similar” privacy rules in the future. Because of the current regulatory landscape, the Federal Trade Commission is also barred from policing ISPs, leaving no federal cop on the beat to protect consumer privacy in this space.

In other words, ISPs would have carte blanche when it comes to rifling through, sharing, and selling your private data.

Wisconsin faces ‘tidal wave’ of costly roadwork delays

Gov. Scott Walker’s transportation plans would result in more congestion, deteriorating road conditions and decades of delayed projects, reviews by his own administration show.

The plans will also force more money to be spent on temporary repairs as the state puts off major projects because of a funding crunch, according to a Department of Transportation memo written in January.

The situation will only get worse.

“The tidal wave is coming, as this critical work can’t be delayed forever,” the January memo says.

The memo was prepared for Secretary David Ross and Deputy Secretary Bob Seitz to get them up to speed as they took over the Department of Transportation. The memo and other briefing documents were released to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel under the state’s open records law.

These backstories are in a lot of so-called kid’s movies or TV shows, though the sadness is often glossed over for TV. Think about how many single-parent families there are in Disney flicks or TV shows, even going back to the 1960s. Lots of widows, widowers and divorced couples with kids. Orphans, too.

Pixar, to its credit, doesn’t gloss over those traumas, but includes them in their plots, very subtly, as the video suggests. And TBH some of them had not occurred to me before. For example, Wall-E. It’s no wonder the little guy wants companionship and love so much: he’s watched all his co-workers die one by one. I’ve watched this film several times, and frankly that bit never sunk in.

Beijing has decided to replace its gazillion taxis with electric models over the next several years. Electric buses are also becoming more common, even in podunk towns like mine.

When I was stationed in Spain, the Navy would fly in pallets of Girl Scout cookies on a C-130 for the local base Girl Scout troop.

It was volunteer duty from the base personnel to unload cookies, and boy did they get lots of volunteers.

Since Rota is really a Spanish base with the US Navy as a tenant command, there were also lots of Spanish seamen, as well as civilian workers from Rota on the base.

US Girl Scout cookies would flood half the province when they went on sale.

One thing about conservatives, they are consistent and don’t give up easily.

• The Texas Supreme Court is hearing a case that conservatives and religious fundamentalists hope can eventually lead to an overturning of legalized gay marriage nationwide.
• Opponents are suing the city of Houston over its decision to extend benefits to same-sex spouses of city employees.
• Houston officials argue that they are required to provide them under a US Supreme Court 2015 ruling that same-sex marriage is a legal right nationally.
• The court had initially chosen not to hear the legal challenge.
• However, under pressure from Republican state lawmakers, including Governor Greg Abbot, the all-Republican court reversed that decision in January and allowed the trial to begin.
• In several amicus briefs (advisory opinions to the court), lawmakers asked the court to reject the “‘ideology of the sexual revolution” that federal judges had passed into law.

With both sides, yet. Yeah, put the f-word on the villain’s side (and IIRC, he’ll get hit with Bury Your Gays for that, too—I don’t think I remember just Gaston dying in the animated version). And he looks like an absolute fop in that shot, though maybe not 20th-century-level flaming.

A good number of non-cishet people are going to see the 21st-century version of Stepin Fetchit (well, at any rate, until the real thing’s the only position available to Black actors again with the Confederacy rising). I think I’m kinda one of them. Maybe a serious and non-cowardly villain later, and even later than that comic relief, but the first appearance should be a semi-serious hero, by my way of looking at it. Especially since, if he actively expresses his desire to anyone, he’ll already be an anachronism, so make him an openly-gay heroic one!

And of course, even his being a villain and getting his comeuppance in the end won’t be nearly enough for the Teavangelicals, who I think at this point have started lobbying to have the Hays Office reopened and expanded to, as well as cinema, any television that doesn’t require an individual-channel subscription. And they actively boycott and sometimes violently picket media they don’t approve of.

There was a telling moment last night when Trump recalled how Harley-Davidson employees visiting the White House told him they’re getting crushed by foreign tariffs, and Trump vowed to fix that. “They weren’t even asking for change—but I am,” he said. In fact, Harley-Davidson’s CEO has asked for change in the form of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free-trade deal that would have drastically reduced some of those tariffs, the very same “job-killing” deal that Trump boasted about scuttling in his speech.

The cooling system went to hell on me this morning. Been leaking and I topped it up with coolant this morning but got about 2 miles into the 17 mile trip there and was massively overheating. Overflow tank is overflowing which means the thermostat is probably dead now too.

GOP strategist seems to have helpful goal for Ossoff, running as the Democratic candidate for GA-6.

As a matter of fact, it sounds like an awful lot of people here on running Democratic candidates in areas considered deeply Red districts.

So, should we, or should we not, run people in every election we can?

The thing is, even if Ossoff ultimately loses, we’re finally showing a willingness to step up.

Considering most Americans don’t even have $500 in emergency savings, a child care tax credit for saving money for child care needs is an awful way to deal with a problem facing most Americans.

re: #132 The Vicious Babushka

Democrats?

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said during an appearance on MSNBC that Sessions should bow out to maintain “the trust of the American people.”

Minutes later, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) joined McCarthy’s call, tweeting that “AG Sessions should clarify his testimony and recuse himself.”

The calls from two of the House’s most prominent Republicans follow revelations that Sessions met with the Russian ambassador during election season. Under oath in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee for his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions had said that he had not met with any Russian officials.

According to Justice Department officials, Sessions, a top Trump supporter, met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak twice in 2016, including one September meeting in his office.

In a statement following the revelations, Sessions denied he had met with “any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false,” he said.

McCarthy and Chaffetz are the first prominent Republicans to call for Sessions to recuse himself. Some Democrats went further, calling on Sessions to resign, demanding an independent investigation and, in a few cases, accusing Sessions of lying under oath.

That’s what Cruz does and it’s what makes him dangerous. He’s not a stupid man. Instead he plays to the ignorance of stupid people. Not just this whopper but his past claims about net neutrality. I’m hoping Beto O’Rourke beats him good in 2018.

makeitstop  Mar 2, 2017 • 7:38:55am

Josh Marshall makes a good observation here.

Why are there so many unforced errors? Why conceal this meeting? Frankly, why lie about it? As I said, big, big scandals work like this. People who don’t even appear to be that close to the action keep getting pulled under for what seem like needless deceptions. The answer is usually that the stuff at the center of the scandal is so big that it requires concealment, even about things distant from the main action, things that it would seem much better and less damaging simply to admit.

We’ve all heard the old saw: It’s never the crime, it’s the cover-up. This is almost never true. Covering scandals for any length of time is enough to tell you that. People are generally able to make judgments about how much trouble they’re in. We think the ‘cover up’ is worse than the crime because it’s actually very seldom that the full scope of the actual crime is ever known. The cover up works better than you think. The other reason the cover up is a logical response is that it usually works. You only find out about it when it doesn’t. So it’s a good bet.

Must be a lot of heartburn going on right now in the GOP leadership ranks. Sessions was their primary bulwark, their protection against having to deal with the Russia/Trump mess. The hope that if anything came of the FBI’s investigation, they could stomp it flat by having him just say he won’t pursue charges. But now, he’s caught up in the whole mess. Which means they have no way of making the scandal go away without furthering the idea in voters minds that there is a massive coverup.

One of the funnier aspects of this whole scandal for the GOP is they could have simply avoided it by not politicizing Hillary’s emails. But politicize it they did, because it was their only real hope of winning last year. And one of the biggest points in the whole sorry affair was their demands that Lynch recuse herself, if not resign her office, over a conversation she had with Bill. She didn’t lie that she met with him, most certainly didn’t do so under oath, and the spun her refusal to pursue criminal charges even after Comey said none were warranted as covering for Hillary. Not that that will stop them from twisting themselves into pretzels to argue that Sessions’ actions are “different,” but it will only make their hypocrisy more evident.

We know Sessions lied about not having any contacts. The question becomes what the conversation was about, and the issues raised by both sides and the responses to same.

The question is what you were talking about.

Sure, this could have been regular business of the US Senate, but Sessions was known to all as a surrogate and member of Trump’s team. So the content of the conversation becomes central to just how badly compromised Sessions is.

Connecticut Republicans are trying to kneecap the Republican Chief Justice for being a “liberal judicial activist”

The framers of our Constitution and the founders of our country recognized the need for this independence, and for the ability to have judicial review free of repercussions. Yet the attack on judicial independence has gained steam nationwide under the guise of the rejection of “judicial activism,” which is merely an indelicate euphemism for, “a position I disagree with.”

While Connecticut had remained, for the most part, insulated from this national disservice to our judiciary, it is no longer so. The reconfirmation of Justice Richard Palmer, a 24-year member of our Supreme Court, has been tainted by allegations of judicial activism. These criticisms of Justice Palmer seem to arise from his opinion for a majority of the court abolishing the death penalty in Connecticut, in State v. Santiago, and from a now-infamous footnote in the divisive Richard LaPointe appeal. Palmer, who up until Santiago in 2015 voted repeatedly to retain the death penalty in Connecticut, faced pointed criticism about his opinion in Santiago. One legislator stated that the Legislature “makes policy,” and the Supreme Court “just looks at the law and determines what the law is, not what it should be.” Another cautioned all the members of the court, claiming that they had “wandered into areas that don’t belong to the judiciary.” Palmer was accused of usurping the Legislature’s authority by substituting his judgment for theirs. Other legislators chided the justice about his footnote in LaPointe, which addressed a harsh dissent by Justice Espinosa.

Palmer’s reconfirmation had been held up for a brief time, although now it has progressed to the Legislature at large. This criticism and questioning of Palmer’s qualifications to be a jurist based on his honest, good-faith rulings, on a matter of constitutional interpretation, should be shocking and abhorrent to all lawyers.

And most likely, he was “pressured” into doing so (or, more likely volunteered to) due to YUUUGE debts owed to Russian lenders. Which, of course, might be revealed by the release of any of his credible financial records, but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for those….

Getting to the bottom of Trump’s dealings with the Russians is likely to be a very long and hard slog. Dolt 45 may have innumerable other failings, but one of the few areas in which he has exhibited truly creative genius is in the crafting of opaque and deflective financial transactions to hide/protect/insure his personal involvement(s).

Rather than support her opinion with legal analysis and authority, however, [Justice Espinosa] chooses, for reasons we cannot fathom, to dress her argument in language so derisive that it is unbefitting an opinion of this state’s highest court. Perhaps worse, her interest lies only in launching groundless ad hominem attacks and claiming to be able to divine the (allegedly improper) personal motivations of the majority. We will not respond in kind to Justice Espinosa’s offensive accusations; we are content, instead, to rely on the merits of our analysis of the issues presented by this appeal. Unfortunately, in taking a different path, Justice Espinosa dishonors this court.

— An excerpt taken from footnote 69 of the majority opinion in Lapointe v. Commissioner, written by Justice Richard N. Palmer of the Connecticut Supreme Court. In that footnote, Justice Palmer attacks Justice Carmen E. Espinosa for her dissenting opinion, where she purportedly misinterprets the meaning of habeas corpus.

- Renaming and keeping parts of Obamacare, new entitlements and extending medicaid expansion are not the #FullRepeal we promised
- House and Senate passed repeal in 2015. They should keep their promises and bring them up again for a vote now
- I demand the House release the text of the bill. Every elected official & every American deserve to know what they’re trying to do
- I will not vote for Obamacare Lite nor will many of my colleagues. We will keep our word. I call on House leaders to do the same

They don’t know anything, but they’re confident it’s bad on the basis of nothing.

Don’t know about P5+1; don’t know about centrfuges; don’t know the larger doctrinal issue in which it’s about slowing down acquisition because stopping development is impossible; don’t know about the agreement about refinement outside of Iran. Several assumed that Iran already had nukes.

I was talking more about the tweetstorm than the article (which I didn’t read). Here it is in text form.

2) Donald Trump is a uniquely dangerous president because he harbors so many guilty secrets (or maybe 1 big guilty secret).

3) In order to protect himself, Trump must attack American norms and institutions - otherwise he faces fathomless legal risk

4) In turn, in order to protect their legally vulnerable leader, Republicans in Congress must join the attack on norms & institutions

5) Otherwise, they put at risk party hopes for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to remake US government in ways not very popular with voters

6) American institutions are built to withstand an attack from the president alone. But …

7) … they are not so well-built as to withstand an attack from a conscienceless president enabled by a hyper-partisan Congress

8) The peculiar grim irony in this case is that somewhere near the center of Trump’s story is the murky secret of Trump’s Russia connection

9) Meaning that Trump is rendering his party also complicit in what could well prove …

10) … the biggest espionage scandal since the Rosenberg group stole the secret of the atomic bomb.

11) And possibly even bigger. We won’t know if we don’t look

12) Despite patriotic statements from individual GOPers, as of now it seems that Speaker Ryan & Leader McConnell agree: no looking.

13) So many in DC serenely promise that “checks and balances” will save us. But right now: there is no check and no balance.

14) Only brave individuals in national security roles sharing truth with news organizations.

15) But those individuals can be found & silenced. What then? We take it too much for granted that the president must lose this struggle

16) The “oh he’s normal now” relief of so many to Trump’s Feb 28 speech revealed how ready DC is to succumb to dealmaking as usual.

17) As DC goes numb, citizen apathy accumulates …

18) GOP members of Congress decide they have more to fear from enforcing law against the president than from ignoring law with the president

19) And those of us who care disappear down rabbit holes debating whether Sessions’ false testimony amounts to perjury or not

20) Meanwhile job market strong, stock market is up, immigration enforcement is popular.

21) I’m not counseling despair here. I don’t feel despair. Only: nobody else will save the country if you don’t act yourself. END.

Looking at how they’ve expanded what counts as abortion to include chemical contraception and Plan B; and become particularly focused on late-term procedures that aren’t contraception, and that nobody “chooses” for convenience; and their total lack of interest in the context of why people choose abortion…up to and including medical necessity.

Must be a generational thing: I recall as a kid watching the original Star Trek downstairs on the b&w portable (my folks didn’t like it, so we never got to watch it on the upstairs color set).

I liked most of the films, but never really got into any of the follow-up series. I liked Captain P, but to me at least, the rest of the cast were just characters, not really personalities.
