If Cheechako is around, my wife is scheduling are departure for the Great White North shortly after the village board meeting on 9 July (Friday 13, maybe)?

The VA clinic in Sidney called me today to say they’ve ordered my medications for the trip and I should see them in a couple days.

Any LGF denizens we can come by and bother in E. Montana, W So. Dakota, Sask., Alberta, BC, or Yukon?

After the Wentzville, Mo. city council had an atheist removed from the council meeting (cutting short her time and having the police escort her out over a public commentary over paying for a giant religious sign for the city council room), another atheist has spoken out in the city council, after delivering a secular invocation.

patheos.com

On Wednesday night, another local atheist, Brian Farmer, did two things that were remarkable.

During the public comments section of a Board meeting that night, he condemned the officials for stoking the fire of anti-atheist bigotry. When other citizens said atheists should “leave the country,” for example, the Board never had any criticism for them. It was unacceptable behavior.

Before that, however, Farmer delivered a secular invocation that was inclusive and beautiful — showing the Board that there was no reason to be afraid of people who didn’t believe in God.

(more, with text of his secular invocation)

Interesting thread. The comments on the Collins tweet offer a horrifying look into the mass psychosis of the Trump cult. The comments on Bertrand’s thread are a nice counterpoint. Them Trumpers are pretty disturbing, tho.

I listened to the Stuttering John podcast (well, the half dealing with the Trump call anyway). Here are some observations.

The phone number they used is the White House public number. Anyone can call it. Their first attempt was a failure. Stuttering John was stonewalled by the operator when he truthfully identified himself by name as someone who knows DJT. The second call was more successful. He pretended to be a staff member calling on behalf of Sen Menendez. The operator seemed to take this call more seriously, and after Stuttering John fed her some BS about Menendez needing to speak with The Donald urgently about some bill in Congress, she took his name and number and promised to get back to him.

Time passes. They get a call from a WH staff person calling to confirm the cellphone number, because it is not on their list of numbers for Menendez. Stuttering John tells her he is on vacation in California, using another cellphone, because Menendez really, really has to talk to Trump. Staffer says OK, no problem. We just had to confirm it was you.

[Note: Stuttering John affected a bad English accent and assumed the name Sean Moore — “Sean — S-E-A-N — as in Connery and Moore as in Roger Moore,” he told the staffer. I am pretty sure there is no such person on Menendez’s staff.]

Time passes.

The phone rings “unknown caller.” It is Trump. Stuttering John uses his normal speaking voice and pretends to be Bob Menendez. Hilarity ensues.

So, here’s the clusterfuck in detail.
(1) Congressmen would not be calling the WH public phone number, because they have their own access numbers for communications with the WH.
(2) They would also not be calling the WH public number to speak to the president personally. Friends of the prexy would presumably have a private number to call.
(3) The first call was done by the book.
(4) The second call did not follow procedure, and that switchboard operator is likely looking for a new job on Monday.
(5) Whoever then took that incoming message seriously and walked it up the chain to the actual presidential staff will also be looking for a new job come Monday. Given items 1 and 2, the message should have spiked right away as a prank. Someone could have called Menendez’s office to confirm the caller’s identity, but this was not done.
(6) The confirmation call was by the book, but the staffer took Stuttering John’s vacation ruse as a valid reason to use an unknown phone number. She did not challenge his identity, or location in California, or the reasons for this urgent call sufficiently. She will also be out of work on Monday, even if Kushner approved the eventual call-back as is alleged.
(7) Kushner will not be looking for a new job on Monday.
(8) Trump should not have used his personal phone to return the call without everyone being sure it really was Bob Menendez calling. Stuttering John provided his own personal cellphone number in California as the callback number, which was supposedly Sean Moore’s — the fake staffer. Menendez and his staff would likely have numbers with NJ or DC area codes.
(9) Other pranksters will try this same approach now.
(10) This WH is full of amateurs who should not be allowed out of the house without supervision.

We have those around here. I am fortunate that the only ones I have met have been newly “hatched” and I didn’t meet mama. Had a nest of them in our crawl space many years ago, and we had a cat and a dog bit. Both survived, but would not have if they had encountered mama.

There are known to be large congregations of broad banded copperheads around certain oak trees when the cicadas hatch. For some it’s the biggest feed they’ll have all year. We have them here in TX as well, but not in my area. No cottonmouths either. Go south or east 40 miles and they got them.

Hillary Clinton: ‘What is more uncivil than taking children away?’ (The Guadrian, more at the link):

Throughout the presidential campaign, Clinton was criticised for exercising a degree of emotional self-control that looked cold and inauthentic, while Trump’s volatility was taken as evidence that he meant what he said and really cared. Lately, however, Democrats have been provoked to condemn the president with a passion some on the left warn is becoming “uncivil”. I’m curious to know what Clinton thinks of this.

“Oh, give me a break,” she erupts, eyes widening into indignation. “Give me a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than taking children away? It should be met with resolve and strength. And if some of that comes across as a little uncivil, well, children’s lives are at stake; their futures are at stake. That is that ridiculous concept of bothsideism.” She adopts a mockingly prim voice. “‘Well, you know, somebody made an insulting, profane remark about President Trump, and he separated 2,300 children from their families, that’s both sides, and we should stop being uncivil - oh and, by the way, he should stop separating children.’ Give me a break, really,” she growls, rolling her eyes. “I mean, this is a crisis of his making that will damage kids for no good reason at all, and I think everybody should be focused on that until the children are reunited.”

If I still lived in the Southwest, I would own a gun, a pistol loaded with snake shot (basically shotgun shells for a pistol) just for the event that I encountered a fellow like that on a hike. You don’t have to aim very closely and the scattered shot generally does not do more than scare them away.

re: #51 teleskiguy

In other words, total sociopaths, Donald Trump voters, and gun hoarders.

Yes but the common denominator is actually toxic nostalgia, the collective looking backwards towards an idealized past with a strong sense of having a birthright stolen but no sense whatsoever of the concomitant depravity that would have come with its inheritance. We look back with longing at a time when white Christian men didn’t have to share power and all racial / ethnic / religious / sexual minorities’ mere existence depended on our sufferance and righteous mercy. Unfortunately most of us have no real understanding of the inhumanity and corruption the exercise of that absolute power demanded in return, and therefore we refuse to acknowledge the negative effects caused by the disproportionate level of power we still retain.

The gun fetishism fits this in that the gun is mythologized as the primary tool that enabled our ancestors’ conquest of this Continent and maintained their supremacy, it symbolizes the Wild West and reminds us of the lost frontier where we can vicariously relive the genocide our ancestors committed and the racial injustice they viciously imposed without having to internalize any of its lessons or take any responsibility for its continuing legacy.

There is an article on the Toronto mass-murder from April.

Google Translate doesn’t do well with the headline from Swedish:

translate.google.com (Google Translate, a little rough but understandable)

expo.se (unintelligible, at least to me, in Swedish)

Toronto mass killer, Alek Minassian. In social media, before his murders, he had been praising another incel, who had connections to the alt-right movement.

Shapiro was a total jerk as always; he claimed that he didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 — but that’s because he thought he wasn’t a real conservative. Now he seems totally on board with Trump and would support him in 2020, though he admits he’s not a fan of Putin or tariffs. He doesn’t believe Trump colluded with Russia because Trump isn’t capable of colluding with anyone; a belief that confirms that Shapiro is either an idiot or a liar. Trump is totally capable of colluding with someone who is helping him.

If I still lived in the Southwest, I would own a gun, a pistol loaded with snake shot (basically shotgun shells for a pistol) just for the event that I encountered a fellow like that on a hike. You don’t have to aim very closely and the scattered shot generally does not do more than scare them away.

I’ve stepped over quite a few rattlesnakes. I’m not carrying a gun for that. People who may be trying to harm me in the desert? That’s much more likely. I’ve actually been shot at while camping near Area 51. We scrambled the babies and dogs into the vehicle and left the trailers to spend the night at the Little A-Le-Inn(sp?) in Rachel.

I have to deal with the occasional rattlesnake around the water tower or wells here in my town. I don’t need my shotgun to deal with rattlesnakes; don’t mess with them and they don’t mess with you.

When I see one I do pass it around the village to avoid the area and keep your kids out of those places (but for the most part the water tower and wells aren’t really the place children want to play here).

Then we went and watched Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which sucked.

We had just watched “The Outlaw Josie Wells” and I was fascinated by those old Colt cap-and-ball pistols.

so They were having “Wild West Days” at the local gun club in Gau-Algesheim were offering a chance to fire a cap-and-ball pistol for around eight bucks.

So I did.

Agreed, but I am irritated that (simplifying) the message here seems to be :”trump got bamboozled by NK” instead of “Trump sold out the US to NK.”

Arguably, a case could be made was NK was/is de facto a nuclear state and perhaps we’re better off dealing with it the way Trump is, but that is not the case being made.

Instead, the Nazis thought they themselves were the VICTIMS.

“They” was referring to the Nazis, not the general populace.

But many Germans bought into the story that Jewish war profiteers and bankers betrayed them because all they had to read in the papers up to November 1918 were reports of how well the armed forces were doing (and they really did nearly pull off a victory in the spring of 1918) until they suddenly and rather unexpectedly collapsed.

And yes, Trump is still gaining momentum, which is scary. I am sure now that Congress will refuse to act on the findings of the Mueller Report save to make every effort to point out any real or contrived flaws or inconsistencies.

They could send Trump up right now if they wanted to for gross and egregious violations of the Emoluments Clause, but they are not about to. Why should a report from a “tainted and partisan Deep-State witch hunt” serve to change their minds?

“I believe that creation is a religion, but so is evolution [my emphasis],” he said. “The only difference is, only one religion is allowed to be taught to the kids.”

He built this thing from a semi-trailer. He transports it to state and county fairs all over the Midwest, to promote his lies view about evolution and lies truth about creationism.

“I believe that creation is a religion, but so is evolution [my emphasis],” he said. “The only difference is, only one religion is allowed to be taught to the kids.”

Because we do not teach what science is, what it can do and what it cannot do. We do not teach the Scientific Method and how a theory is created.

The Grand Island (Nebr.) Independent has a staff editorial praising Tim Draper’s proposal to divide California up into three states. (The editorial claims huge deficits in the state budget and a massive outmigration of people from the state, the same conservaderp promoted for years.)

They hope that if this is successful, that Colorado can divide into “Calirado” and “Normal Colorado.”

We hope Draper’s proposal takes root. Due to the great in-migration of Californians, Colorado may one day consider subdividing into two states: Calirado and Normal Colorado. The state of Nebraska should, however, remain securely intact as most Californians are not likely to cross the Great Plains or the great political divide, except by air.

This is the media we have to deal with here. Too bad we’re too far from an NPR station, we don’t even get that.

Man in Miami calls 911 from the hood of his speeding car on Interstate 95. His girlfriend took the car, because she did not want him to pick up their daughter from school. She was arrested for endangerment.

“This Guy Is Up to Eyeballs in Shit”: Bill Shine, Roger Ailes’s Former Enforcer, Has Been Hired to Shake Up the West Wing. But Might Hope Hicks Be Chief of Staff? (Vanity Fair, more at the link):

At Fox News, Bill Shine ascended from Sean Hannity’s producer to Roger Ailes’s right hand because he was the ultimate Ailes loyalist and enforcer. Now he’s poised to play the same role for Donald Trump. Trump’s decision to tap Shine as deputy chief of staff signals that the West Wing is entering a new era, one in which the last redoubts of internal rebellion are stamped out. “Shine is very tough,” a former Shine colleague told me. “You could pull a gun on him and he’d be like, ‘Son, put the gun away.’”

According to sources close to the White House, Trump wants Shine to plug the leak-prone communications shop and bring discipline to the White House’s daily messaging. “He’s a mechanics guy,” the source close to Shine said. “He can determine when the best day to announce something is to drive the news cycle; or when the White House is doing events how to get the best camera shots.”

Sean Hannity blames Maxine Waters for the mass murder in Annapolis. (With video)

Of course Lumpy does. He’s deflecting as fast as he can. Meanwhile, the truth always comes out.

When the identity of the apparent gunman in the massacre of five journalists in Annapolis, Maryland, was revealed, area resident John Hutson, a retired Navy admiral who is now a prominent consultant and writer, had a shock of recognition. The suspect, Jarrod Ramos, had contacted Hutson in March 2015, taunting him about his role in alerting law enforcement and thwarting a potential mass killer who threatened schoolchildren and Jews in far-away Montana.
That first individual in Montana, David Lenio, overflowed with hyperbolic threats, and Hutson’s efforts to stop him succeeded, as I reported at Salon, just after it happened. Ramos was more cryptic less overtly demonstrative—but in the end, far more deadlier. Both were somewhat enigmatic, angry loners, with an unmistakable affinity for the racist alt-right.

“Jarrod Ramos was a lone nut who was not politically motivated, but he was politically influenced by the alt-right,” Hutson told Salon.

Researcher Fred Clarkson agrees. “Ramos and David Lenio seem to have been drawn into the orbit of far-right visions of anti-democratic violence, even as they seem to have ultimately acted on their own,” said Clarkson, a senior research analyst with Political Research Associates, a progressive think tank in Somerville, Massachusetts.

The only two politicians Ramos had tweeted about, according to Hutson, were Donald Trump and Michael Peroutka, a wealthy neo-Confederate funder turned Maryland county councilman. Hutson has written about Peroutka, as have I. Peroutka had major funding ties to former Alabama judge and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, as well to the League of the South, whose leader, Michael Hill, had written approvingly about plans to form paramilitary groups to fight a militarized “fourth generation” culture war, one of whose targets would be the media.

We’ve been reduced to outsourcing our right wing nut jobs.

Indian man worships Donald Trump as ‘god’

An Indian man has found a ‘god’ among us - not Zeus but President Donald Trump.

Bussa Krishna, 31, a farmer from the Indian state of Telangana, has placed a photo of the president in his prayer room and worships it daily along with other Hindu gods, according to the Hindustan Times.

The idea to worship Trump came after Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a software engineer from India, was killed by a U.S. Navy veteran last February.

“I was very much pained at the incident,” Krishna told the Hindustan Times. “I thought the only way the U.S. president and his people could understand the greatness of Indians is to display our love and affection towards them. That is why I started worshipping Trump with a hope that the prayers would reach him one day.”

We have Trump worshippers here, too. They’re called Southern Baptists.

News outlets report 63-year-old Liberty University professor Stephen Kilpatrick was arrested Wednesday. He faces multiple charges, including using communications systems to facilitate certain offenses involving children.

A task force against child internet crimes says Kilpatrick was arrested after travelling to meet someone who he believed was an underage girl. The school said in an email that Kilpatrick has been suspended from his position as an associate professor of mathematics “pending the outcome of this matter.”

I don’t know if Huckabee has changed drastically in the last 10 years, or if he’s just given up hiding an ugly core that was always there. He used to seem like basically a good guy.

I distinctly remember in 2008, when he said of the Clintons “hey, they put in the effort to work through their problems and save their marriage. They’re still together. And they’ve raised a fine daughter. The fact that we disagree on economic policy doesn’t take away from that.”

And I distinctly remember in 2008, when he said of Jeremiah Wright, “I grew up in Arkansas during Jim Crow, I remember it all very clearly. What they endured was real, it was cruel, we should all be grateful that Black Americans for the most part aren’t as angry and vengeful as I would be if I’d had to put up with that for all those years.”

I even voted for the asshole in the 2008 primaries. (I voted Obama in the general. Other than Michael Bloomberg, the last Republican I supported in a general election was HW — a vote I still stand by, BTW.

The first introduction I had to him was the Chuck Norris ad and even though, I thought and think Chuck Norris jokes are lame, it was a pretty neat little ad. But you’re right. He’s always been a smiling face of something far worse. The funny thing is the conservatives I knew and talked to in 2008 hated him. They called him a liberal since he wasn’t totally doctrinaire on what they wanted economically. But then again, these same people thought the Dems would have been scared by a Fred Thompson candidacy. I was in my moderate phase then. Was willing ot listen to Thompson to see what the hype was and man what an uninspiring, generic guy.

Quack doctor put on probation for 35 months. Yay California!

Medical board puts infamous doc on probation for toddler vaccine exemption

Dr. Robert Sears, a pediatrician infamous for promoting alternative vaccine schedules that allow parents to delay or entirely avoid the life-saving jabs, has been placed on a 35-month probation by the Medical Board of California.

The punishment stems from an accusation filed by the board in 2016 claiming Sears demonstrated gross negligence in the case of a two-year-old. The board alleged that Sears gave the young patient an exemption from all future vaccinations without reviewing any of the child’s medical records, including those that indicate which vaccines the child had received and any subsequent reactions the child suffered. Sears instead relied on an account from the child’s mother, who said the child went limp and that the child’s kidneys and intestines “shut down” after vaccinations.

The board also cited Sears for later examining the child for a head injury after the child had reportedly been “‘hit on head with hammer’ by Dad.” Sears failed to follow up with standard neurological testing, the board wrote.

And he also let Maurice Clemmons out of prison saying he was “born again”. Clemmons showed his gratitude by going on a murder spree that killed four policemen.

Like every other RepubliKKKlan, Fuckabee claims he had nothing to do with letting Dumond or Clemmons out of prison.

Keep marching. Some of you know when I was very young, had all of my hair and a few pounds lighter, there were people that said we would never get a civil rights act or a voting rights act, but we marched. We were arrested, we were jailed, we were beaten, but we didn’t give up. We must not give up. I will tell you one thing that we all can do, we all can do is continue to appear in our beloved communities. We are one family. We are one family. We all live in the same house, not just the American house, but the world house. We are all brothers and sisters.

It doesn’t matter if we are black or white, Asian, Latino, we are all one people. Maybe our foremothers and forefathers all came to this land in different ships, but we are all in the same boat now. There is no such thing as an illegal human being. We all are human. And we must teach people in power that we will not be satisfied with the order of I’m not satisfied. There are hundreds of members of Congress that are not satisfied. There are many candidates running that are not satisfied. For each and every one of you when the Election Day comes around we have to go out and vote like we’ve never voted before.

Odd stuff happening on my side street this morning after I noticed a petro smell inside my house. There’s nothing in my house that should produce that smell so I looked outside to see a car being loaded onto a flatbed tow truck. Kind of odd that that would be happening but then I noticed that they’d taken all of the tires off the car and it was just sitting flat on the truck. Weird, but I figured the petro smell would disappear when the truck left. Then I noticed that there was gasoline from the car on the street and leaving a trail down to the storm drain. Not OK. Was headed upstairs to put some pants on and then I noticed a police SUV parked at the end of the street. By the time I got my pants on, the cop and the tow truck were gone. A few minutes later, I heard more trucks outside so I checked to find out the cop was parked across the street, and a fire/rescue squad of five guys was on my street with kitty litter, brooms and a hose to clean up the gas that had drained from the car.

Now I’m really curious as to what was up with the car and the driver/owner in the first place. Why did they take the tires of the car before they towed it, or were some of the tires stolen from the car overnight (I did see the tow guy throw one tire into the back seat)? I hope it’s not the latter, and it bothers me to think that I didn’t realize anything was going on until I could smell it (To be fair to myself, there are fans and AC units running in every room in the house). Ugh.

There was so much negativity around Hillary from years and years of both conservative trash talking and media picking it up and running with it.

It got to the point that it was more ‘cartoon’ Evil Hillary that was running for president than Hillary Clinton.

And she even gets blames for that. She needed to rise above it, be more an inspiration, blah the f’n blah blah.

So with all that a lot of people probably did think we needed to be saved from another Clinton.

The problem was they paid no attention to what they were thinking was the savior. They didn’t know how much a corrupt and terrible businessman he was. They too fell for the ‘cartoon’ Trump. Mr. Ye’r Fired TV Reality star.

As long as they hold Congress, the GOP seems to be fine having a Democratic president. They have cover while they bitch and do crazy shit and they know most U.S. citizens blame everything bad on the president.

Tom Baker says Matt Smith was the only person who welcomed him on Doctor Who’s 50th special (Digital Spy)

“Matt Smith is a darling young man - he made me very welcome,” the legendary actor said, in a candid interview for the new Doctor Who: The Collection - Season 12 Blu-ray set.

“[But] he was the only one who welcomed me - I drove through the night to Cardiff, and Matt Smith came seeking me out, so full of joy and so happy to see me! He made it very, very easy acting with him, and I’m so glad he’s going on to tumultuous success.

That sucks. He should be treated like a living legend by anyone associated with the show.

Scary. A constituent just confronted me and told me I support open borders. I told her that’s not true and I’ve never said that. She said “@FoxNews said you do.” Guys, this is what we are up against. We aren’t battling ideology. We’re battling misinformation.

The whole ICE debate is misinformation. Fox and DT are telling us that Dems want to abolish all borders and immigration control. They just want to separate the callous and, unnecessary and cruel task of separating families from the other important and necessary jobs that ICE does

re: #291 HappyWarrior

Besides a lot of MS-13 members are American born. Trump acting like ICE is the only solution to them shows how stupid he is.

He’s using ICE as a wedge issue and a Fox News scare tactic. He well knows what he is doing.

He’s being what he is; a controlling arrogant bigoted con man. He has his base willing to stop MS-13 now…before it becomes so big it makes all of America safe.

So, he scares them and offers the fix at the same time. Then he gets to do what he and others have always wanted to do. Get their hate on. The man is ugly and evil.

EDIT: Yeesh. I meant he wants MS-13 stopped now.
