So he may fire Mueller? What limit will finally appear to stop Donald Trump? Only that which we have already seen. Our courts are doing the hard labor so far. Congress simply will not act.

Extraordinary” item from Josh Marshall about some US/Israeli cyberspying:

One of the stand-out cyber-warfare or spying feats against ISIS was carried out by Israel. And it was that operation that President Trump blabbed to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak.
***

Even one of the rare successes against the Islamic State belongs at least in part to Israel, which was America’s partner in the attacks against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Top Israeli cyberoperators penetrated a small cell of extremist bombmakers in Syria months ago, the officials said. That was how the United States learned that the terrorist group was working to make explosives that fooled airport X-ray machines and other screening by looking exactly like batteries for laptop computers.

Two things:
1. So the “laptop ban” wasn’t just Security Theater bullshit.
2. Good job, Mr. President! If you’re gonna burn an intelligence source, might as well make it an important one.
Asshole.

Alcede said that spirits are still high and his band of patriots “accomplished their mission,” despite them being tricked.

“We were there to let people know that this is our history and we’re now going to make this group official. We’re trademarking the logo and going to continue fighting,” Alcede said on Monday.

“It’s the patriots against the snowflakes. That’s what this is about.”

Sounds like he’s ready to stand around aimlessly in the heat whenever called.

I followed that story for a while. The amazing thing is that the RWNJs still insist the threat was real and it was only their fearsome presence that scared away the Antifa snowflakes and saved the monument. It did no good to point out that Sam Houston was not a Confederate and even if Antifa and Antichrist were going around destroying secesh idols with nuclear backpack charges, they would still not target that one. One yokel on my FB page said, “No, he wasnt a Confderate but they still want to destroy our heritage.” It is a classic demonstration of ignorantredneck conservative strawman attacks and confirmation bias.

He uses Nikon gear with a 14mm wide angle lense to get this shot.

Now take a moment to think about this. Yeah, you’ve got five guys who climbed a ladder, hooked up their safety lines, and arranged themselves around the top of the spire. And that’s pretty good for spiking the agoraphobic meter.

But there’s also the guy behind the camera. He’s in this cage, hanging from a crane, leaning out to get this picture. He also has his safety harness hooked, but he’s swaying in the wind with absolutely nothing below him. (fair point - if there’s wind the spire is swaying a bit too. But you get the point.)

I’m not sure most are capable of such long-range thinking, but just follow the scary predictions of the WN/WS/neoNazi leaders that someday soon(!) America will not be majority white. “The new XXXXX is only the beginning! Soon, white men will only be lackeys to the growing numbers of non-{white males}. We must stop XXXXX now!”

Hence, the constant trumpeting about “white genocide” in South Africa. There is no such thing happening, but the rubes don’t know that, so they get all worked up about something like it happening in the States. Won’t happen here either.

I read that thread. There are a few former Republicans that are really freaked about having to confront what their party has become; this was one.

One of the best, most accurate takes was in the replies, where it was noted that “Fox News and Roger Ailes have ruined the United States of America.”

The derangement of the GOP started with the Southern Strategy. Continued with the Reagan deal with the devils of the “Moral Majority.” We thought it reached its nadir with Dubya.

And then along came Trump.

Yeah, there are a lot of confused people when it comes to video games. But they don’t really have legislative traction and are generally laughed at by anyone younger than 50. Games like Counterstrike are super popular around here.

The more recent Wolfenstein titles are not illegal to distribute; just restricted to 18 or older. The 90’s were a different time.

Bloomberg summary of the extent of hacking, and the affect on voter confidence is damning.

bloomberg.com

Russia’s cyberattack on the U.S. electoral system before Donald Trump’s election was far more widespread than has been publicly revealed, including incursions into voter databases and software systems in almost twice as many states as previously reported.

In Illinois, investigators found evidence that cyber intruders tried to delete or alter voter data. The hackers accessed software designed to be used by poll workers on Election Day, and in at least one state accessed a campaign finance database. Details of the wave of attacks, in the summer and fall of 2016, were provided by three people with direct knowledge of the U.S. investigation into the matter. In all, the Russian hackers hit systems in a total of 39 states, one of them said.

There was a big blowup that started in Stuttgart over banning clearly ANTI-Nazi images because they contained a “forbidden symbol”.

So now there is a big section of paragraphs noting exceptions to the rules and rules covering the exceptions.

Skinheads were fond of wearing T-shirts by a fictional brand called “Lonsdaple”, becuase when you wear an open shirt over it, you see the letters “NSDAP”.

So the law has been amended that it is okay to wear Lonsdaple but not to cover up the first and last two letters…

There is generally some confusion about the laws against Nazi propaganda, even among Germans.

Sounds like your reading tastes are similar to mine. As in, identical to mine. So therefore let me recommend:

Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child (the Pendergast series)

Christopher Brookmyre (Scottish author)
Mark Billingham (UK author)
Mo Hayder (UK author)

BTW the “Bones” books are totally different from the TV show. The Tempe Brennan character in the books is not the same person as the TV series. Tempe in the books is 50something, has a grown-up daughter in the military, and a Canadian boyfriend. Also, she’s a recovering alcoholic.

I often found that it was used simply an excuse to avoid uncomfortable discussions. And it shows again that freedom of speech is a tricky bitch to master…

My daughter is a TV Bones fan, so I’ve seen quite a few of the early episodes. I imagine they young-ified Tempe to make the show more palatable to 20-somethings (such as my daughter) than to old farts (like her father). But AFAIC Emily Deschanel is worth watching in any role. (BTW she’s now 40.)

Trolls are trolls. There are plenty in the USA who just get all tingly by offending people with neo-nazi tats, slogans, and white supremacist social media posts. Rage Furby would be one prime example.

And that is a problem: sorting out the trolls, bored teens, sociopaths and attention-seekers among the neo-Nazi movement from the ones who would really re-open the concentration camps and start filling them with undesirables and useless eaters.

Ah, but in Germany you have the added element of the neonazis playing hide’n’seek with the prosecutors by using all kinds of elaborate codes instead of just tattooing swastikas on their foreheads.

As I said, it keeps them occupied.

re: #189 The Vicious Babushka

I started watching the show thinking it would be like the books and I was disappointed at first but it seems like Reichs was having a lot of fun.

I’ve given up expecting books and TV or film versions to be at all alike. I try to enjoy them as they come.

One of these days, I’m going to start reading the Spenser series. I liked the TV version back in the day.

I’ve also watched the Jesse Stone and Longmire series, and enjoyed them. Only read one Jesse Stone novel so far.

That account takes tweets and puts them on official looking stationary.

I saw a fellow here in Germany in a black T-shirt with white lettering containing the text of the “fourteen words” speech… in English, which I guess is not forbidden…it contained a number of grammatical and spelling errors…I debated whether or not to approach the fellow with a black marker and offer to “correct ” them.

And they ran “The Producers” in German TV, but did not dub the songs…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking congressional leaders to undo federal medical marijuana protections that have been in place since 2014, according to a May letter that became public Monday.

The protections, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, prohibit the Justice Department from using federal funds to prevent certain states “from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.”

In his letter, first obtained by Tom Angell of massroots.com and verified independently by The Washington Post, Sessions argued that the amendment would “inhibit [the Justice Department’s] authority to enforce the Controlled Substances Act.” He continues:

Escaped from Lubbock. Finally. I cannot express to the lizardoid community what an absolute shithole this place is. It is not because of economics, or the scenery, or even directly because of the absurd religion that prevails there. It is because of the people. A lethal combination of demographic, historical, and cultural factors has created the most reflexively, unrelentingly dishonest large group of people in the world. A typical goddamn Lubbockite cannot open its mouth without lying or misrepresenting something or trying to unfairly abuse someone. No wonder 70% of them voted for Trump.

Very late reply from the previous tread. Sorry for the belated answer KGxvi…

re: #128 KGxvi

I’ve been contemplating something today after seeing there was another referendum in Puerto Rico regarding statehood (apparently statehood won big, but a lot of opponents boycotted the election). What are the odds that Puerto Rico and DC (in some manner) could become States?

I mean, procedurally, for Puerto Rico it’s pretty straight forward, Congress passes a statehood law and the president signs it. DC is a bit more complicated because of the 23rd Amendment and Article I Section 8; but even still… statehood wouldn’t be that difficult - you announce that DC will become a state, you pass a constitutional amendment repealing the 23rd Amendment and pass a statehood law at the same time (or have one become effective on the passage of the other).

What I’m considering is more the political implications. Puerto Rico becomes the 29th largest state in the Union, entitling it to 5 seats in the House; DC would get one seat in the house. Do we increase House membership (at least temporarily, I’d prefer it being a permanent increase) to 441? Between 5 new Representatives, and 4 new Senators, what are the political calculations? I’d figure all three Congressional members from DC would be Democrats, figure the PR Senators get split (complete guess), you’re looking at a 53-51 split in the Senate.

Would that be tenable for the parties? Also, one more interesting question, what if Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands were made into a single state?

Puerto Rico would be a giant political clusterfuck (and I’m not talking about the debt crisis). The three traditional political parties are not aligned with the traditional Liberal/Conservative spectrum, but in the status solution they aspire for PR. If it were my guess, we’d have a strong minority looking to revert the statehood composed from the splintered sovereign movements, the an anemic Republican Party (at least, when compared to the other states) composed from some of the pro-statehood leaders, and a bewildered Democratic Party composed mainly from people of both local big parties. How anemic (or if they are) the Republicans would be can be explored.

The PR/Virgin Islands statehood proposal might have more weight though.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area. Looks like Trump/GOP/Koch are moving ahead with their plan to shred the Bears Ears National Monument so they can exploit this sensitive natural habitat and essential ancestral lands of Native Americans.

They don’t care that they are working to violate federal law - the Wilderness Act, which grants the President only the power to establish national monuments, but not the power to reduce the size or eliminate them altogether. It’s just another way the GOP are enabling Trump’s running roughshod over the rule of law.

Bears Ears went through a rigorous process to be designated a national monument and all the parties who were affected had ample opportunity to weigh in. All the stakeholders know that they had that opportunity and the process was thorough and comprehensive.

Trump’s pushing this insanity to benefit a select few, all while ignoring the Native Americans whose lands are protected with this monument designation.

And that’s just the first of many crazy things that this insane administration is moving ahead with today.

There’s Sessions’ testimony under oath where he’ll get to try and spin his way into yet another perjury charge, because you know he’s just not that good of a lawyer and not that quick to realize the damage he’s doing to his own credibility (which was zip to begin with).

Oh, and lest we forget, the GOP continues moving ahead with efforts to destroy health coverage for millions in secret. The Senate GOP continues working in secret on a plan to gut health coverage and destroy both Obamacare and Medicaid, but they don’t want the public to see any of this because it would stop them cold in their tracks if the public realized just what the GOP was up to - seeking massive tax cuts for millionaires while destroying the safety net for millions. That’s millions of our parents and grandparents who rely on Medicaid for their health coverage.

The GOP has fantasized for decades about destroying the safety net, and Trump’s Russia scandal is giving them the cover to work without the kind of scrutiny it deserves.

Oh, and lest we forget, there’s news that the Russia attempts to actively cyberattack online election systems was more widespread than first noted by media outlets.

So of course the GOP is roundly booing and caterwauling over a rendition of Julius Caesar that appears to portray Trump as Caesar.

The mayors of Los Angeles and Long Beach signed an agreement Monday directing the nation’s largest port complex to reduce air pollution by moving toward zero-emission trucks and yard equipment.

The two-page declaration signed by L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia says the ports “shall advance clean technologies and other efforts to move toward the goal of zero emissions” and establishes targets for zero-emission cargo-handling equipment by 2030 and zero-emission trucks by 2035.

re: #179 The Vicious Babushka

Sounds like your reading tastes are similar to mine. As in, identical to mine. So therefore let me recommend:

Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child (the Pendergast series)
Jeffery Deaver (the Lincoln Rhyme series)
Kathy Reichs (the “Bones” series)
Christopher Brookmyre (Scottish author)
Mark Billingham (UK author)
Mo Hayder (UK author)

BTW the “Bones” books are totally different from the TV show. The Tempe Brennan character in the books is not the same person as the TV series. Tempe in the books is 50something, has a grown-up daughter in the military, and a Canadian boyfriend. Also, she’s a recovering alcoholic.

I’ve read most of the Bones series and several from Preston/Child and Deaver. Another is Iris Johansen, whom I’ve read on and off. I’ll definitely look into the UK and Scottish authors. Thank you!!

I also enjoy the lighter side of mysteries and procedurals like Janet Evanovich , Liz Evans (a UK author of the awesomely amusing Grace Smith books - which I think will be my next full re-read), and a ton of others.

re: #260 freetoken

I had a high school friend who was just in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. They now offer tours of the Chernobyl power station’s control rooms (not unit four, which was the one that blew up). That’s all because the authorities want people to understand that the risks are now reduced thanks to the New Safe Confinement structure. However, there’s quite a few areas that are off limits due to hot spots. Everyone needs dosimeters when entering the zones, and they’re checked entering/leaving for radiation traces and exposures.

It certainly is a haunting reminder of how things can go dangerously wrong with nuclear power, and how the Soviets hid the dangers for days, not only from the rest of the world, but from its own citizens.

re: #304 Big Beautiful Door

The solar industry employs 4x as many workers as coal mines:

The first number — 260,000 U.S. solar workers — stems from the 2016 edition of the National Solar Jobs Census, which is published by the Solar Foundation, a nonprofit organization aligned with the solar industry. We confirmed that, according to the foundation’s calculations, there were 260,077 solar workers in the United States in 2016.

The second number — unstated in the op-ed, but equaling 87,000 workers employed in coal mining, if you do the math — actually overstates the number of mine workers. According to the Energy Information Administration, a part of the federal Energy Department, the number of people working at coal mines was 65,971 in 2016. The actual ratio between the two numbers would be almost four-to-one.

Coal mining is a dying industry.

Workers in that industry are doing more work to achieve the same output, which is benefit of mechanization, automation, and a longstanding trend in industry.

It’s about symbolism. The symbolism of hard-working white people doing jobs that require little education and few skills.

And an economy that measures progress and prosperity on how much we produce and consume, not how well or efficiently we do so.

The event was billed as a showdown with “Antifa,” or anti-fascist, protesters. A Houston branch of the left-wing group had allegedly called for a protest June 10 demanding the removal of the Sam Houston Monument on the grounds that Houston was a slaveholder. That appears to have been a hoax, as the Houston Press previously reported. On Saturday, no Antifa demonstrators showed up, disappointing some of the more than 200 counter-protesters who spoke to the Press.

Instead, organizers of This Is Texas clashed briefly with a small faction of protestors carrying Confederate flags. The organizers kicked the group out of the main demonstration, and the Confederate flag bearers retreated to a different protest site across the street.

Donald Trump just held the weirdest Cabinet meeting ever

Once Trump finished touting his administration’s accomplishments, he turned to several of his newly-minted Cabinet secretaries like Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. Each of those Cabinet secretaries lavished praise on Trump, which he accepted without comment but with a broad smile.

At first, I thought Trump was just going to have the new members of the Cabinet spend a few minutes praising him. NOPE! It soon became clear that Trump planned to have every Cabinet member speak. And when I say “speak” what I really mean is “praise Trump for his accomplishments, his foresight, his just being awesome.”
You think I am exaggerating. I am not. Here’s what White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said about Trump: “We thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda.”

I’m learning the investment in the lens far exceeds the cameras in lasting value. I look at it like this, I have lenses from decades ago I can use. Cameras? None digital, few film. Lenses from the 1950’s are treasured by movie studios and rental houses for them. Well I should say each decade has some sets that are just the thing for a certain look.

Anti-gun violence group formed by Sandy Hook parents has dumped Megyn Kelly as host of an event due to her interview of Alex Jones. It might be worth it if she was going to roast Jones like the British did, but what are the odds of that?

I’m trying to figure out why they were going to have her as the host in the first place.

While McCloughan was drafted after graduating from Olivet College, young Donald was reclassified to 1-A status in July ‘68, after graduating from Wharton, before receiving a 1-Y classification (essentially medical exemption since Vietnam wasn’t a “war” nor “national emergency) in Oct ‘68.

All I can think is people thought Megyn was some sort of big star of the media and were glad to have her speak. And if that is the case it makes me wonder if people really have paid attention to what is going on in this country politically.

When it comes to Fox News, do they watch it critically asking questions and going to other media to check out other angles to the story? Or do they just open up their brains and allow Fox to march in and occupy the empty spaces?

Christian Extremist Josh Duggar Says He Is The Victim

June 7, 2017 by Michael Stone 47 Comments
Child molester and Christian extremist Josh Duggar says he is the victim, and is suing the parties responsible for releasing information about his child molestation case.
TMZ reports:

Duggar filed documents to join the lawsuit Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy filed last month. In his docs, Josh says cops assured him his 2006 interview discussing the molestation of his sisters would remain private. He says since he wasn’t charged, the information wouldn’t have gone public … if the reports weren’t released to In Touch magazine.
Duggar says once the story came out, it caused him mental anguish and humiliation. He played up the sympathy card in the docs, saying he was “victimized and forced to relieve the painful and difficult circumstances of a traumatic experience as a juvenile.”

When someone has reached this place of delusion, their only pressing commitment is preserving the myth they’ve told themselves—and so their minds for all practical purposes are rendered nearly unchangeable. To reach a different conclusion would involve them rewriting the false story they’ve already convinced themselves of and vigorously defended, sometimes for years. To consider another alternative becomes a threat to their very identity—and so rather than arguing with one’s own mind, the much less complicated or time-consuming task is to simply tell it what it wants to hear regardless of whether or not it is real.

The person who has discarded truth is insulated from rationality. He or she will not respond to the presence of a cogent argument or the proffering of measurable facts. Any information not corresponding to the narrative they’ve predetermined will be immediately labeled “fake news” and quickly rejected. You cannot win a debate with such a person, you cannot craft compromise with them, and you cannot appeal to reason—unless you are too are willing to concede to fantasy in order to reach them where they are, and this is a steep and slippery slope.

There are plenty of businesses the government should not be directly involved in, but running and maintaining national parks, monuments and forests is certainly one that they are best suited to do.

On Monday evening, a deranged man appeared in Midtown Manhattan to rant in front of a large and largely helpless audience about world affairs, those involving Russia in particular. The plainly disturbed individual was, by turns, incoherent, disingenuous and condescending. Most troubling of all was his insistence that he be taken seriously, when, in fact, he could only be taken ridiculously.

The man was identified as professional conspiracy theorist Oliver Stone.

re: #511 Birth Control Works

Here’s an article that touches on something you’ve often said:

Whenever the Democrats lose a major election, unhappy consequences are sure to follow. Among the most infuriating of these is the party’s unseemly haste to put women’s rights on the chopping block.

Abortion is an economic issue in two senses: First of all, it is about what class of women gets an abortion, and thus is most profoundly affected when abortion access is denied. Poor women have a rate of unintended pregnancy five times the rate of higher-income women (those with incomes at least 200 percent of the poverty level), and fully 75 percent of women who have abortions are poor or low-income. The reasons for the class disparity in abortion rates are a bit murky, but we do know that low-income women are less likely to have access to contraception and more likely to experience rape. In any case, the demographics of abortion make one thing clear: the war on abortion rights is a class war on poor women, full stop.

In addition to the stark class disparities of abortion, there is also the fact that having a child is among the most consequential economic decisions a woman will ever make. Because we live in a society that provides few resources to families, the burden of unpaid care work falls heavily on the shoulders of mothers.

If people make one mistake in assessing Putin, it is to see him in through the lens of a new Cold War.

There are so many things in play that it is easy to be overwhelmed.

Now, the majority of Americans may not be so, but as has been repeatedly shown and discussed, it doesn’t take a majority to cause a revolution. Or devolution, in this case.

One of the houses of Congress has to switch to Democratic control in 2018, or the cumulative damage by 2020 will be very great.

There have been no reported injuries of lawmakers or journalists in the Capitol. But Greg Gianforte, a Montana Republican who was sentenced to community service Monday for assaulting Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, will soon serve in Congress.

Rush is seriously, projecting or inverting reality.

The Russian Federation spent May 2000 until August 2008 preparing for war against the US and EU.

Ever since then, Russia has been at war with us. Everyone that works in the defense and intelligence industry knows this. Only Glenn Greenwald, and the people who have benefited from this situation, ignore or refuse to see it. Because it’s a different kind of war, no one is shooting or dropping bombs, they are able to get away with this shit and brainwash 60+ million people.

Rush has no principles. He just hates liberals.

And this surprises anyone? The only “promises” he’s interested in keeping are those that improve his financial position. He cares about nothing else.

Maybe I’m not quite correct there — he also cares about having others laud him and admire him.

The entire purpose and mantra of the GOP is just to oppose the Left. They are an evil and soulless party.

We may well hear trump opine that he “always wanted a Medal of Honor”

Trump deserves one for risking STDs during his brave tour of duty in NYC Discos. This guy should show his gratitude and give his to Trump.///

Should we route our calls thru Russia to see if they are more readily accepted?

Take a bow, atheists, if it truly was you who stopped this disgusting affront to reason. You have the thanks of whatever is left of American civilization.
